6) Chris Cook, Minnesota Vikings Cornerback 

When the Minnesota Vikings selected cornerback Chris Cook from the University of Virginia in the 2nd round of the 2010 NFL Draft, it was believed that they were getting a playmaker who would help to lock down a defense that at the time included veteran cornerback Antoine Winfield and 2009 third round pick Asher Allen. Alongside a Vikings career that has yet to produce an interception after four years, Cook has caused a few headaches with off-field behavior including being arrested twice in 2011, though he has since stayed out of trouble and had his best statistical year in 2013 to the tune of 47 tackles and three passes defended. If the Eagles are interested at all, it’d be due to his size (6’2, 212) and likely a one-year contract.
