The Philadelphia Eagles narrowly missed out on the postseason with a 10-6 record, and are looking to upgrade their defense to get back to the playoffs. What needs to they have to address in this year’s draft?
Philadelphia desperately needs someone they can count on to play opposite of Cary Williams to improve one of the league's worst secondaries. Oregon’s Ifo Ekpre-Olamu and LSU’s Jalen Collins would be good options in the first round.
Malcolm Jenkins proved to be a solid player last year, but Nate Allen hasn't shown he can be an impact player at strong safety. Gerod Holliman from Louisville or Derron Smith from Fresno State would be good options for the Eagles in the first round, or they could trade up to take Alabama’s Landon Collins.
Jordan Matthews has the potential to be one of better receivers in the league, but Jeremy Maclin is a free agent and is very injury prone. Philadelphia could look to upgrade their weapons on the outside to help Nick Foles, and Louisville’s DeVante Parker and Stanford’s Ty Montgomery are the best options for the Eagles.
