Round 2, Pick 50 (via Saints) - T'Vondre Sweat, defensive tackle, Texas

It never fails. It doesn't matter how many defensive tackles the Eagles employ, they're always in the market to add more. Fletcher Cox has called it a career. T'Vondre Sweat, a six-foot-four, 340-pound stop-gap, makes sense for Vic Fangio's defense.

Round 2 - Pick 53 - Max Melton, cornerback, Rutgers

Max Melton is everything you need in a slot cornerback. Philly could use one of those. Avonte Maddox is gone, and Zech McPhearson is unproven.

Melton (five-foot-eleven, 187 pounds) recorded 32 tackles, three interceptions, and six pass breakups) and had an excellent showing at the 2024 NFL Scouting Combine. His stock will continue to rise. Getting him in Round 3 is a steal.

Round 3 - Pick 97 (compensatory pick) - Isaiah Adams, G/OT, Illinois

Isaiah Adams started at left guard and right tackle for Illinois over the past few seasons. During his senior campaign, he played primarily at right tackle. That's the type of versatility Jeff Stoutland loves.

He could be a valuable backup the Eagles could develop into a part-time starter. Grabbing him with a compensatory pick is certainly a win.

Backup plan: Kiran Amegadjie, offensive lineman, Yale

Forget 'football IQ'... Kiran Amegadjie is just smart. Heck, he went to Yale for goodness sake.

In addition, this six-foot-five, 323-pound behemoth has the stuff to be a great player at the highest level of football. He played tackle at the collegiate level but needs a lot of work to do so successfully in the NFL.

Fortunately, if drafted by Philly, Jeff Stoutland, the best in the biz, would be his position coach.
