Texas’ Caden Sterns would be an immediate boost to the Philadelphia Eagles.

At six-foot-one and 210-pounds, Texas Longhorn defensive back, Caden Sterns has the perfect size and skillset to be an immediate cog in the Philadelphia Eagles’ defense. Blessed with great vision while scanning an offense, this young man has the football IQ to be an impact player right away.

He’s someone that can be moved around a defense. This Texas product has the versatility that defensive coordinators search for in prospects. He’s great in coverage and is able to flip his hips smoothly while taking away one of an opposing team’s best offensive weapons.

The Philadelphia Eagles defensive backfield hasn’t had a true consistent playmaker for years, so adding a ballhawk like Caden Sterns would be a great first step. Placing him on this struggling defense would give the Birds a legit general on the backend as well as a guy that coaches can lean on in tough spots.

With his amazing combination of size, speed, and excellent football intelligence, Caden Sterns could be the prospect Philly fans have screamed for over the years.
