Deep corner class crucial to Eagles rebuild
- Second-year Philadelphia starter Jalen Mills and free agent signing Patrick Robinson are the team’s current top corners, but both struggled last season.
- Mills’ (34.8) and Robinson’s (51.0) coverage grades ranked them 110th and 92nd, respectively, among corners in 2016.
- Robinson, who only played in seven games for the Colts due to injuries, allowed three touchdowns and a 111.7 QB rating when targeted.
- Quarterbacks had a 97.7 passer rating when targeting Mills last year, and he allowed 7.1 receptions per coverage snap (112th out of 117 qualifying cornerbacks).
- Philadelphia will look to add a cornerback on Day 1 or early Day 2 of the draft. They have shown interest in Colorado’s Chidobe Awuzie, Washington’s Kevin King, Alabama’s Marlon Humphrey, and Ohio State’s Gareon Conley.
