Eagles see “significantly higher” number of draftable corners this year

There are plenty of mock drafts floating around this time of year and one thing they have in common this draft season is that there are a lot of cornerbacks finding their way into the projections.

That doesn’t come as any surprise to the Eagles, who are often one of the teams predicted to take a corner at the top of the draft. During a press conference on Thursday, vice president of player personnel Joe Douglas said that the depth of the group of cornerbacks hitting the league this year is greater than it has been in the last few years.

“I can’t give you the exact number of draftable cornerbacks that we have. I can say it’s significantly higher than the past 3-4 years,” Douglas said, via

Douglas called the position “probably the toughest” to play outside of cornerback, so it won’t be surprising to see the Eagles add multiple players to the thin group currently on hand.

    dumping eric rowe was stupid. schwartz’s ego and need to send a msg early in his tenure got in the way on that one.

    Have to improve the secondary, but the guys up front have to play better too…

    Thats great but unfortunately, Howie Roseman knows nothing about football and even less about Cornerbacks. He has people like Joe Douglas,Andy Weidl, Trey Brown, Mike Bradway, Chris Shea who are real football guys. He lets them do the grunt work while he gets credit for the picks that flourish and escapes blame when they fail. SMH

    The Rowe trade is spilt milk now.

    Everybody was clamoring for his release when he was sinking on the depth charts during TC, and applauding Roseman for getting a 4th out of it when they managed to trade him.

    Then Rowe got a ring and suddenly it was the dumbest trade ever.

    You can’t win in Negadelphia.
