Wallace can fly around the field and make plays on the ball. He finished his college career with 156 tackles, 15 passes defended, five interceptions, two forced fumbles, and two sacks.
Wallace was also an All-ACC third team selection his senior year and an All-ACC honorable mention in his junior year.
Without question, Wallace is always sure to leave a mark if he gets a chance to hit a guy in space. Opponents might as well just go out of bounds to avoid him, as he plays his best in the run game and as a blitzer in the pass game.
This is something defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz could use to his advantage since he likes to utilize guys with versatility and use them to their strengths. Wallace can also play on special teams, which could earn him a spot on the team.
Wallace doesn’t have the speed or quickness to play in pass coverage too often, but the Eagles don’t need him to right now.
At the moment, Philadelphia has Rodney McLeod, Will Parks, and Jalen Mills holding down the fort for at least the 2020 season.
The Eagles need to draft someone to groom under these three experienced veterans, and Wallace’s ability to help in the run game, as a blitzer, and on special teams will give him value right off the bat.
Ultimately, the Eagles don’t trust Rudy Ford or Marcus Epps as depth at safety enough, meaning Wallace in the fifth round could be a solid choice.
