You can make the argument that the last day of the Eagles’ 2020 draft was more impressive than the first two. All of these guys Philly took in Round 4 or later can wind up in the “steal” category, but they can also wind up fading into the background and off of the roster, everyone except for K’Von Wallace of course.
K’Von Wallace is the most NFL ready of all of the Day 4 draftees, and he figures to see the field before and more often than everyone else in his rookie season.

The only knock on him is teams wished that he was a little faster. If he was, he probably would have come off of draft boards on Day 2. Make no mistake about it though. This dude can ball.
No one becomes one of the best players on one of the nation’s best teams if they can’t. Philly has four safeties on the current roster (Marcus Epps, Rudy Ford, Rodney McLeod, and the newly-acquired Will Parks), and the rumor is they intend to transition Jalen Mills over. Expect Jim Schwartz to find some kind of way to use this guy. He’d be silly not to.
It’s too early to call some things roster-wise, but it’s safe to say, even now, that K’Von Wallace will be on the final 53-man roster. Ford and Epps have a lot to think about in the meantime.
