If you read ITI a lot, you’ve heard quite a bit of discussion on Malcolm Jenkins, Rodney McLeod, what will come of their contracts, and whether or not Philly has enough depth at safety. One thing is certain. The Eagles can’t walk into 2020’s regular season with Marcus Epps and Rudy Ford as the starting safeties.
You can also make the argument that they’re questionable choices for being backups. Enter Khaleke Hudson. He’s a liability in pass coverage currently, but he could improve that at the next level with good coaching. He’s already a solid run defender. In 2019, he helped the Wolverines’ cause with 102 tackles, two sacks, and three pass breakups.
He’s five-foot-eleven. He weighs 218 pounds, and he figures to come off of draft boards in Round 3 or Round 4. Circle his name if you’re a ‘Birds’ fan.
