The Philadelphia Eagles held a meeting with UCLA star QB Dorian Thompson-Robinson on March 3 at the NFL Scouting Combine.
The “meeting went very well and he’s been impressing teams all week,” according to Michael Greger, and he “seems to align with what Philly does” from an offensive standpoint.
The Eagles aren’t interested in replacing Pro Bowl QB Jalen Hurts. Philadelphia would love to bring in a young rising talent at the position to serve as Hurts’ backup with Gardner Minshew set to hit free agency.
The only other QB on the roster besides Hurts, is Ian Book. It should come as no surprise that the Eagles held a meeting with UCLA star Dorian Thompson-Robinson.
During his final season with former Eagles head coach Chip Kelly, Thompson-Robinson completed 69.6 percent of his passes for 3,169 yards, 27 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions for the Bruins in 2022, adding 12 rushing touchdowns. He set a a career-high with 645 yards rushing last season.
Thompson-Robinson is similar and size in stature(6-1, 205) to Jalen Hurts. He would be a perfect fit in the Eagles offensive system.
