The Philadelphia Eagles need to address the secondary with multiple picks.

Cincinnati Bearcat defensive back James Wiggins is one of those underrated players that the Eagles need to keep an eye on. The six-foot, 205-pound safety has great size, natural tools, and the discipline to be a star for the Philadelphia Eagles.

Penn State edge Shaka Toney could be a steal for the Philadelphia Eagles.

Versatility is the key to the Eagles brass finding steals at the backend of this draft. Shaka Toney has great size at six-foot-three and 252-pounds. He also has the amazing athletic ability and the versatile playing style to fit just about any scheme. Landing him here in the sixth-round could be a steal for Philly’s brass.

Michigan State’s Naquan Jones could be a wise move for the Philadelphia Eagles.

Michigan State defensive lineman Naquan Jones is a big man at six-foot-four and 325 pounds, one that has an excellent motor. Sitting him in the middle of the Eagles’ defensive line could pay dividends quickly.

The front office has spent a lot of time adding to the defensive front, but they’ve normally done so via free agency or trades. It’s time they use the draft, and Jones could be the next great defensive lineman for the Birds.
