Jordan Davis is amazing, but the Eagles should address other positional needs first.

There are a lot of Eagles fans that really like Jordan Davis and understandably so. Following a nice season that culminated in a College Football Playoff National Championship Game win, the six-foot-six, 340-pound Unanimous All-American showed off some freakish athleticism at the most recent NFL Scouting Combine.

Davis placed some rather impressive hardware in the trophy case in his final run with the Georgia Bulldogs. He’s 2021’s Chuck Bednarik Award winner, the winner of the Outland Trophy, a First-Team All-SEC nod, and as mentioned earlier, a CFP National Champion.

Recently, we’ve seen mock drafts in which the author saw fit to send him to Philadelphia, but with the knowledge that the Birds have holes all over their roster and in knowing that they have larger needs that are more pressing, even with the knowledge that Jordan Davis is a star in the making, Philly should be able to find someone equally so at wide receiver, edge rusher, or corner with the 18th-overall selection.

We’d rather someone like Jermaine Johnson, Devin Lloyd, George Karlaftis, or one of the first round’s best cornerbacks be the selection here.
