The Eagles’ biggest need is cornerback. This is considered a deep cornerback draft class.

Just how deep?

“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,” Joe Douglas, the Eagles’ vice president of player personnel, said Thursday.

He qualified “significantly higher” as “more than handful.” One team has 35 cornerbacks with draftable grades compared to 15-20 in average years, according to the MMQB.

The Eagles are unlikely to be in position to land top cornerback Marshon Lattimore at No. 14. But they could be in position for Lattimore’s Ohio State teammate, Gareon Conley, whose stock appears to have ascended during the pre-draft process. That's more the case of the public catching up to what teams have known.
