Samuel Sanchez’ Prediction:

Kevin Johnson, Cornerback, Wake Forest

I heavily believe the Eagles will target the secondary in the first round. Most people have the team taking UCONN’s Byron Jones, but I think a team will reach for him come draft time because of his freakish athleticism. This opens the door for Kevin Johnson, who in my opinion has the best cover skills in this years class. Johnson has good size, fluid hips, elite press coverage, and has an edge to him. All this equals to the perfect fit for the Eagles defensive scheme.
