Phire Posted August 8, 2017 Share Posted August 8, 2017 If you don't know C.J. Smith yet, he might be emerging as a starting CB. Apparently he has looked the part of a starting CB this training camp or at the very least, better than our other options. Quote C.J. Smith might end up being a starter for the Eagles at cornerback. It seems crazy to think that an undrafted guy in his second year from North Dakota State even has a chance — but he does. And unless more talent comes in soon, he has a real chance. Smith has just been better than Robinson and more consistent than Rasul Douglas. Smith has gotten a few first-team reps during practices but he probably deserves more. Smith made a great play against Mack Hollins on Monday, breaking up a pass and putting the rookie on his backside in the process. Quote Smith is someone to keep an eye on in the preseason games. The Eagles have used Jalen Mills and Patrick Robinson – who had a pick-six off of a Carson Wentz pass in Monday’s practice – as the starting cornerbacks to date. Nothing, though, is set in concrete.
