Jalyn Armour-Davis is a day-two corner the Eagles should consider studying.

There are many theories about how the Eagles draft might play out, especially during the first night of the three-day process. Some have mentioned that trading one of those first-rounders is an option. It’s hard to imagine Howie Roseman making three picks. Several others have brought up USC’s star wideout, Drake London, while others still mention Tyler Linderbaum as a potential Jason Kelce successor.

We’ve heard theories about defense as well. Again, Eagles fans would love to see a game-changer taken at linebacker, but no one will complain about a star cover guy being added. This could be prime territory to fill that need as there’s an obvious hole on the opposite side of the formation from which Darius Slay lines up.

Then again, we said the same thing last year, and Philly waited to go with a cornerback on Day 3. You never know with these guys.

Even still, the Tide’s Jalyn Armour-Davis is a solid option. He’s no first-rounder, but he’s a solid choice if Philadelphia adds someone late on Day 2 or early on Day 3. Derek Stingley and Ahmad Gardner are the top two players at the position, and you can name about ten guys who could come off of the board before Davis enters the discussion.

Still, if you give him a look, it’s hard to argue against the fact that he stepped in and played nicely across from Josh Jobe when Patrick Surtain left for the greener pastures of the NFL. He has room for further improvement, but if you’re setting up your own draft boards at home, make sure this young man’s name is on it.
