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

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.
