Trevon Diggs isn't on the same level as Darius Slay or James Bradberry.

Let's keep it 100 as they say. We are not going to tell you that Trevon Diggs can't ball. That would be asinine. What we will state is this.

We judge Trevon Diggs based on highlights and random moments during big games. 11 interceptions in a single season is nothing to sneeze at (his total in 2021), but there's a lot of feast or famine with this guy.

Despite being one of the best in the game, we'd still place him behind Darius Slay and James Bradbery. Big Play started hot and cooled some last season. James may not have the athletic traits of either, but if we're studying these guys on a down-by-down basis, Slay and Bradberry grade higher.

They're older, so we'll see if there's any deterioration this season. For now, however, Philly's starting cornerback duo has to be ranked ahead of the all-star duo in Dallas. ,

The Cowboys might be in worse shape at safety than the Eagles are.

We have spun our wheels going back and forth about the Eagles' depth chart at safety and their offensive readiness with the 2023-2024 NFL season approaching. We'll see what happens, but if the discussion turns to the Cowboys 'closing the gap on the Eagles', ask yourselves a question.

Would you rather have Terrell Edmunds, Reed Blankenship, Sydney Brown, Justin Evans, and K'Von Wallace on your roster with camp approaching or Donovan Wilson, Malik Hooker, Jayron Kearse, or Israel Mukuamu? Yep... That's what we thought.

Something else needs to be considered here. Something tells us that Howie will make another move to shore up this unit. If that happens, the gap between Philly and Dallas' secondary widens further.
