During the pre-draft process, Orlosky, was pegged to be a mid-to-late round selection but ended up going undrafted. With the need for quality interior depth, Philadelphia was a perfect match for his talents. CBS Sports named Orlosky their top undrafted prospect from the NFL Draft. Dane Brugler was impressed with his “brute power and protection awareness” and thought he would “win a starting role and make all the line calls in the NFL.”
The West Virginia prospect would have a had a chance to come in and compete at center during OTAs, however, he injured himself during the Eagles’ rookie minicamp. Orlosky is hoping to be ready to go during training camp.
