Vernon Hargreaves, III, cornerback, Florida
The Eagles are in dire need of a corner, seeing as how their #1 corner last season was Byron Maxwell, who had a terrible season, and is now gone to Miami. Now, the Eagles have needs in multiple positions on both sides of the ball. Had Ezekiel Elliott fallen to this pick, I would've taken him, but taking the second best corner instead isn't a bad secondary (no pun intended).
Hargreaves is a great cover corner, especially in man-to-man coverage, and they will be running a similar scheme that Florida ran, a base 4-3 defense with press man coverage across the board. The Eagles have Malcolm Jenkins at safety, a veteran who was a former corner, who can mentor Hargreaves. And along with second year pro Eric Rowe, Hargreaves could be the cornerstone in turning the Eagles' secondary into a force.
Personally, I do like Hargreaves, but I'm not sold on drafting him this high. Since Elliott is already gone, and the Eagles don't have a glaring need at linebacker or along the defensive line, I thought addressing what I believe Philadelphia's biggest positional void is was the right way to go.
