Gainwell was the best receiving back in this class but fell to the fifth round, which is much further than anyone anticipated. Because of that, he falls down the board in rookie drafts. The Eagles have a competent three-down back in Miles Sanders, so they don't absolutely need to get Gainwell on the field, but it would be wise if they did. He may start out his career as a Nyheim Hines-type player who can become much more if given the opportunity.

Kenneth Gainwell selected No. 150 by Philadelphia Eagles

The Philadelphia Eagles have selected RB Kenneth Gainwell with the No. 150 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Impact

The 22-year old running back out of Memphis will add depth behind Miles Sanders in 2021, providing a potent combination of quickness and power to keep defenders on their toes. Coming out of the same collegiate offense that yielded Antonio Gibson, Gainwell racked up 51 receptions for 610 yards and three touchdowns in 2020 on top of carrying for 1,459 yards and another 13 touchdowns on the ground. He is essentially a younger, more explosive Boston Scott and will likely see meaningful reps in 2021, especially if Miles Sanders continues to deal with injuries.
