Damion Square

DE Damion Square had a good career at Alabama, but was undrafted and then signed by the Eagles. Geoff Mosher spoke to a scout who thought this was a great move by the Eagles.

“I’ll tell you what, when I looked at the Eagles’ rookie free-agent acquisitions, the first guy I saw was Damion Square,” the scout said, “and I said that’s a great priority free-agent signing.”

The case for Square is that he played 3-4 DE at Bama and for a pro style coach. Square should be more NFL ready than most rookies.

The case against Square is that he lacks ideal size (6-2, 293) and is only a limited athlete. While he might have been effective in college, can he get the job done in the NFL?

Here is a short highlight video. Notice how on most of the plays he is cleaning up after someone else has gotten penetration or been the primary disruptive force.

I hope the scout is right, but I think Square is a long shot to make the roster. We’ll get a better feel for him in Training Camp. Right now he’s just getting the best of some trash cans.

    He shed some blocks and got back into the play, so that’s something.
