After the Eagles selected WR Nelson Agholor in the first round, the team looked to shore up their defense in the next two rounds. To get the player they really wanted Chip Kelly and the Eagles traded with the Dolphins to select Eric Rowe a cornerback from Utah. Rowe is 6’1”, 205lbs and ran a 4.45 40 yard dash at the NFL combine. He is a physical, lengthy cornerback, who has the ability to disrupt the game of wide receivers on the outside. Eric was a free safety for three years before switching to cornerback at Utah. In the NFL, Rowe will have the ability to cover large play-making wide receivers and has all the physical assets that teams look for in a cover-corner. The Eagles did a good job addressing their defensive secondary that struggled in 2014 with this pick.

In the third round the Eagles drafted Jordan Hicks, linebacker, University of Texas. Hicks is 6’1” and 234lbs. He has all the intangibles NFL teams covet and is a consistent tackler with the versatility to play both inside and outside linebacker. He isn’t a spectacular player athletically; however, he has the upside and productivity to be an instant factor on the defensive side of the ball.
