This Sauce Gardner guy is pretty good, but the Eagles have more than him to worry about when they meet the Jets.
The Philadelphia Eagles don't take defensive backs in the first round of an NFL Draft very often. As a matter of fact, they have only done so three times... like ever...
They also haven't done so since Lito Sheppard was the choice in 2002, but had Jordan Davis been off the board and had Sauce Gardner, by some weird circumstance, been available last year, they would have given his selection some serious thought. When you watch him play, it's easy to see why that's the case. Let's make long stories short. Dude has game.
Sauce is one of pro football's shining stars. The 2022 Defensive Rookie of the Year, he already has a First-team All-Pro nod and a Pro Bowl nomination on his resume. He's someone to watch when the Birds tackle the New York Jets on the road at MetLife Stadium in Week 6.
He's also bringiing some friends with him to the game. Forget the records in this one. Forget about the past. The Eagles will have their hands full with a pesky Jets team. Here are ten guys who are not named 'Sauce' that are looking to give Philly its first loss of the 2023 NFL season.
Here's a spoiler. The Jets have some ballers.
