The Eagles are high on Kary Vincent, but he could fall victim to the numbers game.
Guys will rise and fall as they’re evaluated during the coming months, but let’s just say what most of us believe to be correct is true. Let’s assume Darius Slay, James Bradberry, Avonte Maddox, and Zech McPhearson all make the roster. That’s a pretty good assumption, right?
If that’s how things shake up and if Philadelphia’s plan is to walk into the 2022-2023 NFL regular season with six cornerbacks, which is another safe assumption, then eight guys are, more than likely, in a dog fight for two spots on the 53-man roster.
Keep something else in mind. Craig James and Josiah Scott might be the next guys on the depth chart once we move past the top four. Clearly, none of us know how this shakes up. It’s May. Injuries can occur. Anything can happen.
Still, for guys like Kary Vincent Jr., a former LSU Tigers star that helped lead his team to a College Football Playoff National Championship trophy, the seat he’s sitting on is much warmer than it was a few weeks ago.
Philly seemed to like him coming out of college, but with an opportunity to take him during Round 7 of 2021’s NFL Draft, they elected instead to go with linebacker Patrick Johnson. It will be interesting to see how the reps at cornerback are distributed this summer and how many of those reps are given to Vincent.
