Eagles select CB Avonte Maddox 4th Round, 125 overall

Recommended Posts

 

Overview: Maddox is sure to get a glowing review from his coaching staff as he has been a model leader and worker during his time at Pitt. While he plays with good toughness and has good athletic traits, his ability to stay connected in coverage has been problematic. Inconsistencies in man coverage combined with a smallish frame are a concern in my opinion, but his combination of long speed and short area quickness has him rising up the board.

Draft Projection: Rounds 4-5

Sources Tell Us: “He’s really shooting up the board in our building. Great tester but he shows it on tape with how athletic he is in coverage. I know our position coach thinks he can get a lot better with some work on his technique.” - NFC executive

Don't love it, don't hate it. Just a meh pick - think he ends up being our KR/PR.

Natural slot corner, great speed and good ball skills. If he was bigger he would have gone in top 2 rounds. Like the pick.

I like the last name Maddox. That sounds like it would be a good player.

Prb our future nickel. Not bad considering our base is nickel. Gotta trust Joe here. 

The pick will prb hinge on who we get next. Hurst still on the board.

Right. Rasul is an outside corner.

Hearing he could be undrafted...just speculation but I'd rather just draft him late and hope it works out

They play two totally different positions. Maddox is our only slot CB. We needed him. FWIW, my buddy is a huge Pitt fan and he's been hyping him a while now.

No but it seems he’s the least talked about out of our CB. Although it looks like a 3rd round pick an Matthews was far too much for Darby.

We invested a 2nd, 2 3rds and a 4th on CB in the past two seasons.

I totally agree on Darby. I love that he helped us win a SB, but if you're gonna give all that up at least include him in your long term plans.

He has dreads which probably means he's a pretty good player

The more players with dreads you have, the better the team
