Philadelphia Eagles: 15 Cornerbacks to place on their 2019 NFL Draft board
Julian Love, Notre Dame Fighting Irish
Many scouts see Love as a second-round selection who could step in a pay dividends early at the professional level. This five-foot-ten, 189-pound prospect recorded 63 tackles, broke up 16 passes, and snagged an interception in his final year at the collegiate level.
Amani Oruwariye, Penn State Nittany Lions
Oruwariye looks the part of the prototypical NFL corner already. Now, he just has to land on a team and prove that he can play like one. Why? Some say that there are speed issues, but his talent can’t be questioned.
He racked up 51 tackles, three interceptions, and broke up 12 passes in his final season in ‘Happy Valley’.
Rock Ya-Sin, Temple Owls
Philly’s, no doubt, familiar with Rock Ya-Sin already, and it isn’t because he has a really cool football name (he could probably star in a nice kung-fu film as well). It’s because we’re well aware that they pay attention to a lot of Temple football with the Owls being in their back yard.
He also did himself a lot of favors at the Senior Bowl with a good showing. We’ll see how he does at the Combine.
Joejuan Williams, Vanderbilt Commodores
Here’s someone everyone likes because he has size with his six-foot-three, 208-pound frame, but he’s also shown some unexpected quickness. He’s not polished enough to earn a ton of first-round grades, but if someone takes a chance in the third round or fourth, they may get a steal.
Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, Florida Gators
You knew some SEC guys were going to be on the list, and here’s another. Gardner-Johnson was all over the place for the Gators as he racked up 66 tackles (nine resulted in a loss), three sacks, and two interceptions. He even batted down two more balls for good measure.
