In next month’s NFL draft, don;t be surprised if the Eagles pull the trigger on:
14. EAGLES (from Minnesota Vikings): CB Tre’Davious White, LSU
The Eagles may be high on last year’s seventh-round corner Jalen Mills, who played in 16 games and started two last year, but after cutting Leodis McKelvin and letting Nolan Carroll walk in free agency, Philly’s top priority needs to be addressing depth at the position.
Picking White here is a nice start.
The LSU product drew praise from Birds’ vice president of player personnel Joe Douglas at the Senior Bowl, and he has the size, speed, and confidence to start from day one.
He could factor into the Eagles’ return game early on, too.
