If you are like me, you watched the NFL Combine out of the corner of your eye, waiting for Mike Mayock to stop droning on and for Marcus Mariota to do something spectacular.
Mayock never stopped and Mariota looked spectacular in several areas.
But one of the most compelling players was Michigan State cornerback Trae Waynes, and since the Eagles are desperate for CB help, it is intriguing to note that Yahoo Sports’ Shaun King’s new mock draft today has Waynes dropping to 20, which is where the Eagles are drafting:
20. Philadelphia Eagles
Needs: CB, OLB, S
The pick: Trae Waynes (CB, Michigan State) – Bradley Fletcher was a major liability last season in the Eagles’ secondary. Waynes is an immediate upgrade. Although he isn’t as physical as I would like, he is an excellent cover corner.
