Eagles looking to strike gold again with another undrafted running back

In hindsight, if you pretend that Corey Clement was picked in the fourth round instead of Donnel Pumphrey last year, it’ll make you feel better inside.

The Philadelphia Eagles are hoping to find similar success with another undrafted running back, this one being Notre Dame’s Josh Adams, according to a report by NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Adams, a Warrington P.A. native, is a between-the-tackles runner who likes to get downhill. He runs through arms tackles, keeps his shoulders square and always barrels for extra yardage. He’s not going to be a back who is going to bounce runs to the outside or make people miss in space consistently.

Adams ran for 1,386 yards and nine touchdowns last season for the Irish, averaging 7.3 yards per carry.
