According to reports on Twitter, two more Eagles earned rookie camp invites today as defensive end Kevin Kavalec and running back Myles Willis will be trying out for the Kansas City Chiefs and Atlanta Falcons respectively.
Running back Myles Willis, a Georgia native, will be trying out for the Atlanta Falcons. He finished his senior season at the Heights with 49 rushes for 301 yards and 1 touchdown. He also had one kickoff return for a touchdown, while averaging 23.5 yards per kick off return. I always believed that Willis had a lot of untapped talent that could have been harvested in the right offensive scheme. He has good agility, and really good break away speed with some good hands as well. It wouldn’t surprise me if he finds room at least on the practice squad with the Falcons.
Kevin Kavalec, a defensive end from Ohio will be heading to the Kansas City Chiefs for a tryout. He finished his 2016 season with 30 tackles, 4.5 sacks, and one fumble recovery. He was always a consistently solid player with the Eagles, and hopefully he will open some eyes in Kansas City and earn a roster spot.
Good luck to both, we will keep you up to date if we hear any updates on their tryouts.
