The Philadelphia Eagles’ front office needs to find defensive back help soon.

By now, everyone in the NFL world knows the Philadelphia Eagles‘ defensive back room offers little to nothing in terms of inspiring talents. In a town that is used to their team rolling out a roster filled with talented corners and safeties, recently, it’s been one letdown after another.

Gone are the days of seeing guys like Asante Samuel, Brian Dawkins, Troy Vincent, and Eric Allen run around. Now, outside of Darius Slay, there isn’t much to get excited about. Slay, outside of a couple of games in 2020, has been great, but everyone else in the unit is s rollercoaster ride with more downs than ups.

Looking around the NFC East, the Philadelphia Eagles need to find a few upgrades if they are going to compete. With the 2021 NFL Draft quickly approaching, vice president and general manager Howie Roseman has a great opportunity in front of him, one where he can find talented reinforcements that could help this team moving forward.

With that being said, we at ITI scoured the list of cornerback prospects in the 2021 NFL Draft that could boost the Philadelphia Eagles defense. In doing so, we found three under-the-radar DBs that would be great investments now and for the future.
