Round 4: Virginia CB Bryce Hall
As previously mentioned, cornerback will arguably be the top need for Philadelphia entering the draft, and depending on how free agency plays out, the Eagles could even use two selections in April on the position.
Most likely, the Eagles will decide to move on from Darby this offseason since the cornerback has dealt with some sort of injury in each of the last three seasons, meaning the concern to stay healthy will only continue if they were to bring him back.
With the current group of young cornerbacks, adding another player to the mix at the position could make things a little more competitive for playing time and help bring out the best in others such as Jones or Maddox.
Depending on whether Bryce Hall would still be on the board in the fourth round, this would seem like one of those scenarios in which the Eagles could take a small risk that may turn out to be a high reward if the Virginia product turns out to be a steal.
For obvious reasons, it was devastating for Hall to suffer a season-ending ankle injury in October, and this could very well result in the cornerback slipping to one of the middle rounds, but if it works out for the Eagles, this is all that really matters.
Looking at Hall’s size and strength, this has NFL potential written all over it.
