Here’s the perfect safety to help the Philadelphia Eagles’ backend.

Even with Texas Christian University defensive back Trevon Moehrig considered a fringe first-round prospect, he never seems to be in a ton of conversations about the NCAA’s best prospects.

At six-foot-two and 200-pounds, Moehrig has the size, speed, and ability to be a playmaker at the highest level of football. The Philadephia Eagles have been in need of a true difference-maker like the TCU product, someone who can be a general for the defense, and this young man fits the bill.

Trevon Moehrig might be the smoothest athlete we at ITI have seen on film, one with great hips in coverage and a ballhawk’s mentality. He has great ball skills and is just as good in playing the role of a run stopper as he is helping out in coverage.

Capable of playing ‘in the box’ at the line of scrimmage, Moehrig has the versatility to be used in many packages for the Philadelphia Eagles. Adding a player with this type of ability could go a long way in finding an identity for this defense which is now led by Jonathan Gannon.

Placing Trevon Moehrig on the backend of this defense would be a huge get moving forward, one that would only make the team better for years to come.
