Could Kary Vincent help cure the Philadelphia Eagles’ cornerback issues?

If the Philadelphia Eagles are still looking to add a cornerback late in the upcoming NFL Draft, assuming they’ve already picked one or two up early, they should be in a position to find a few guys at the end of the selection meeting.

You could mention guys like Mark Webb. Then again, the argument might be able to be made that he’s someone the Philadelphia Eagles should think about moving to the safety position if he wound up on the roster. There’s also Elijah Blades out of Texas A&M. He sat out during the 2020 season, and that may have hurt him some. Still, he’s entering April’s draft and will get some attention.

Kary Vincent out of LSU is a baller. He just isn’t Caleb Farley or Patrick Surtain. He also sat out in 2020, but from 2017 to 2019, he appeared in 32 games and racked up 87 tackles to go along with 15 pass breakups, six interceptions, and a sack. Yes, that’s a sack from the cornerback position.

Expect to hear Vincent’s name somewhere around Round 6, maybe. If you’re still looking for other options, Georgia’s D.J. Daniel and Mark Webb are both interesting, as is Bryce Thompson of the Tennessee Volunteers.
