Perhaps you’ve heard? The Philadelphia Eagles are going to need help at corner.
Well Philadelphia Eagles fans, it may not seem like it all of the time, but two statements that seemingly conflict with one another can both be correct. The NFL Draft is right around the corner, and at the same time, it feels like it’s taking years to get here.
We’ve all identified the Eagles’ biggest team needs ad nauseam. There’s no need to revisit immediately except to say that, by now, as a Birds fan, you should have figured out that this team can’t progress until they find legitimate talent to play the cornerback position.
We know who the cream of the crop is in this draft class as far as prospects are concerned: Jaycee Horn, Patrick Surtain, and Caleb Farley. The question that follows is who’s left and how and where they rank.
Here is a very debatable attempt to answer that question. Here’s a ranking of the ten best NFL Draft prospects at the cornerback position who are not named Farley, Horn, or Surtain. Ladies and gentlemen, let the debate begin.
