Fifth Round, Pick no. 162

With Cary Williams, Bradley Fletcher, Brandon Boykin and Nolan Carroll on the roster, the Eagles do not need to go after a highly-ranked cornerback in this draft. There is a good depth at the position and there will be good options in later rounds.

Terrance Mitchell is one of them. He is a player who is familiar to Chip Kelly, as both were at Oregon in 2011 and 2012.

Mitchell is not very fast, neither a player that wows with his athleticism. However, he uses his insticts and experience to make up for his athletic limitations. He is also very physical at the line of scrimmage. Some of his jams had delayed the development of the opposing receiver’s route so much that in the end, the quarterback forced a bad throw or was sacked.

Mitchell is not pro-ready. Since speed and athleticism can’t be taught, he needs to at least fix his hip movement and learn to use his hands better when going for the ball.

The Eagles won’t hit the jackpot with Mitchell, but they will get a good backup who can also play in special teams.
