From now until the draft in April, there’s a good chance that numerous mock drafts will have Trevon Diggs linked to Philadelphia since the team could benefit in a big way from landing one of this year’s top cornerbacks.

Of course, if this were to end up being the case once the draft gets underway in April, the Eagles certainly wouldn’t be disappointed since there’s a reason Diggs is considered a top cornerback.

Diggs has that physical style of play Philadelphia loves to see on the defensive side of the football, and a selection like this could result in the unit seeing an impact right away from the defender.

Watching the inconsistent play by the Eagles at cornerback in 2019 was beyond frustrating at times, and unless they find a way to improve at the position this offseason, it’s going to be difficult to repeat as division champions.

After watching Diggs stand out the way he did as a senior with the Crimson Tide, one can only imagine what his skill set is going to look like once he’s officially part of the NFL.

What makes a selection like this even more exciting for a team like the Eagles is the presence of Diggs could help apply pressure to some of the younger cornerbacks like Jones and Maddox to help push their games to new levels.
