B.J. McBryde is headed to the Philadelphia Eagles per multiple reports as an UDFA, not a surprise after the attention the Eagles showed him at UConn Pro Day. The Eagles had contacted McBryde before the pro day at UConn, watched and talked to him for some time, and then nabbed him after the draft. McBryde was a little-used defensive tackle for most of his career but his size at 6-5 and at 310 pounds with his strength and speed make him a worthwhile development project.
The Huskies also had McBryde's roommate Ruben Frank land a chance as he'll have a tryout with Lions per Ross Jones of FOX.
Non-UConn but Connecticut based UDFA's that signed include Windsor native Ryan Delaire, from Towson, who is headed to the Buccaneers and Yale's Tyler Varga, who is headed to the Colts.
