Eagles to get another offensive player after Signing Trevor Keegan

Philadelphia Eagles Sign Trevor Keegan In A Major 2024 NFL Draft Move

Keegan is no stranger to achievement; he is a member of the National Champion Michigan Wolverines. In addition to being the captain, he was a left guard starter for three years.

Over the course of his college football career, Keegan proved to be a capable leader and strategist, and he significantly improved the Wolverines’ winning records.

Keegan was instrumental in leading his Michigan offensive line to win the esteemed Joe Moore Award two times in his tenure.

There is fierce rivalry for the Eagles’ right guard job following Cam Jurgens’ expected return to the center position.

The Eagles appear to be building a strong squad with the addition of veteran players like Matt Hennessey, Tyler Steen, and now rookie Keegan.

The Eagles may have found the ideal combination of experienced quality with Keegan’s arrival to win the upcoming season.

Trevor Keegan, a guard selected by the team in the fifth round (172nd overall) out of Michigan, signed a four-year rookie deal on Saturday.

Here are five facts regarding Keegan to be aware of:

1. As a senior, Trevor Keegan ranked as the top high school recruit in the state of Illinois. Ann Arbor, Michigan, is where his mother, Amanda, was raised.

“I believe that Michigan is the only state that stands out from the others. Particularly with Coach (Jim) Harbaugh (the former head coach of Michigan) around,” Keegan remarked. “Our schedule was similar to the NFL’s. It was an enterprise. You receive coaching and instruction while you are a student at Michigan. That was an excellent curriculum that we had. Our coaches did a fantastic job getting us ready. Our strategy, in my opinion, is similar to an NFL scheme, and learning how to implement these Zooms and other things was a really simple task for me.

“Very similar communication and calls, so I think Michigan just sets you apart. Like you said, the competition, we played everybody. I’ve been able to play Alabama, Georgia, Ohio State, Penn State. Really excited for this opportunity and I know these guys are all freaks in the NFL and continue to work my butt off. I’m just really excited for this opportunity. I can’t wait to be in Philly.”

2. Keegan was one of the “red star” players identified by the Eagles’ personnel staff in the pre-draft process.

Said Director of Player Personnel Alan Wolking:”He’s smart and TOUGH. He’s more of the mauler type. He’s going to stand in close quarters and he’s going to fight you on every rep. Michigan football has a brand, and he’s a big part of that brand. So, a lot of the play style elements of his game are things we like here. I think the fans are getting someone who is very much in line with our play style – ‘We’re going to stay in here and we’re going to fight until the whistle and it’s going to be like that for every rep.’ He’ll fit in. Broadly, if you look at this group in general, all of these guys are at the top of our scale for football character, for toughness, for football instincts, and all of that. These guys were captains. They were great teammates. It was prevalent in all of their profiles.”
