So, what happens after the Eagles land two potential starters in Round 1?

With endless possibilities (and theories) about what the Philadelphia Eagles might do with the two selections that they have in the 2022 NFL Draft’s first 18 picks, it’s easy to get lost in hour-long conversations and debates. What happens after that though?

It’s almost like we’ve forgotten that six more rounds will follow.

Day 2 is often a make-or-break portion of any selection meeting for every NFL franchise. Teams can often find future starters, and while the list of names of some of the prospects that we expect to be available is impressive (Kyler Gordon, Christian Harris, Matt Corral, Jahan Dotson), Philly will have to do their homework on some of the lesser-mentioned stars. Here are several that qualify.

. . Daxton Hill, defensive back. . player. 811.

This may be a bit premature, but the comp feels like it works. Daxton Hill reminds us of Malcolm Jenkins.

Sure, they’re different players, but Hill is probably better suited to play safety at the professional level like Malcolm. Another similarity is that once Daxton reaches the next level, he’s someone that can play deep or slide down in protection to cover any opposing offense’s slot receiver.

He’s gotten some Day 1 grades. Don’t be shocked if he slides to Round 2 though.
