CB Patrick Surtain II, Alabama . . player. 829. . .

Surtain would make the Philadelphia Eagles defensive backfield scary.

Tide cornerback Patrick Surtain II may not be the Alabama prospect that Philadelphia Eagles fans have been clamoring for, but he’s one that they need. At six-foot-two and 210-pounds, Surtain has the size coaches covet and the football Intelligence that can not be taught.

The son of a former Pro-Bowler (Patrick Surtain Sr.) Surtain already looks like a better version of his father, with his quick hips, amazing ball skills, and ability to diagnose a play immediately. A terror in the passing game, opposing quarterbacks try to ignore him. That’s probably a wise move. This is a young man that has a nose for the ball and loves contact.

A game-changer on the outside, Patrick Surtain II would be a huge upgrade for the Philadephia Eagles defensive secondary. Adding him and placing him opposite of Darius Slay in the defensive formation would give the Birds the best one-two combo t the position in the entire NFL.
