Supplemental draft prospect OT Isaiah Battle could be perfect fits for the Eagles, Jets or Giants, according to Mark Eckel of NJ.com.
Even though those three teams seem like good options for Battle, Eckel reports that that the Falcons are believed to be the “favorites” to draft the former Clemson offensive tackle.
As Eckel points out, if the Falcons were to use a fourth-round selection on him, the Eagles and Giants would have to use their third-round pick to secure him. However, the Jets are ahead of the Falcons in the Supplemental draft order, so they would have to pass on him for the Falcons to come out on top.
Battle played 27 games at Clemson and started 16. Though he is projected as a left tackle, he has also appeared as a right tackle during his college career.
It’s worth mentioning that Battle had his fair share of character issues while in college.
He was suspended in 2013 for punching a player, and was suspended a second time last season for disciplinary reasons. Battle was also pulled over for speeding in early June and caught with marijuana. He received citations for both incidents, but wasn’t not charged or arrested in either case.
Battle will hold a Pro Day on July 7 at the University of Clemson.
The 2015 Supplemental Draft class also consists of six other prospects: Houston DE Eric Eiland, UConn TE Sean McQuillan, Kansas DB Kevin Short, West Georgia DT Dalvon Stuckey, West Georgia DE Darrius Caldwell, and North Carolina Central WR Adrian Wilkins.
