830. . . . Round 4: James Wiggins, Cincinnati. . player

The Philadelphia Eagles defensive backfield gets another upgraded right away.

University of Cincinnati defensive back James Wiggins has all the tools to be a huge get for the Philadelphia Eagles defense. A true general on the back end, Wiggins has a football intelligence you rarely see. He also has the physical attributes that make him a dangerous presence for opposing offenses.

He has great size at six-foot and 205-pounds. He has freakish athletic ability. He has the vision that you just can’t teach. A natural play-maker, the former Bearcat has the ability to take over a game with his physical traits. He’s scrappy and loves to lay the wood on wide receivers anytime they dare come around his area of the field.

The Philadelphia Eagles’ front office did a great job attacking the safety spot in free agency, but they need to continue to add pieces there. James Wiggins could be the perfect investment as he has the tools to be a true star in the National Football League. He’s an investment that pays huge dividends for the Eagles.
