Eagles Met With Alabama Star At NFL Combine

Written by Tony Ghaul

The Philadelphia Eagles could be in the market for a running back in the early rounds of the NFL draft. Pro Bowl RB Miles Sanders is a free agent and his price tag is too high for an Eagles team with many free agents.

While at the NFL combine, the Eagles met with Alabama RB Jahmyr Gibbs according to Joe Castro.

Gibbs led the Alabama Crimson Tide with 926 yards on 151 rushing attempts for 6.1 yards per carry with seven touchdowns. He also led Alabama in receptions with 44 for 444 yards and three touchdowns.

The Alabama star is a dynamic dual threat that plays similarly to NFL star Alvin Kamara. The 5-11 and 200 pounds Gibbs utilizes speed and elusiveness to stretch the field and give offenses more opportunities to use him.
