Philadelphia Eagles: Ranking Top 10 Free-Agent Safeties Team Should Target
Reinhold Matay/Associated Press

Everyone who follows the Philadelphia Eagles knows the team needs desperately to upgrade its safety corps this offseason. The organization has made a handful of futile attempts since allowing both Brian Dawkins and Quintin Mikell to leave in free agency, but to no avail.

Whether it has been a veteran free agent (Marlin Jackson or O.J. Atogwe) or a draft pick (Nate Allen or Macho Harris, to name a few), the team hasn't been able to fill the void left by a pair of Pro Bowlers. First-year defensive coordinator Billy Davis did a remarkable job with a limited group of players on his side of the ball last year, all the while transitioning to a 3-4 defense.

It is high time Davis gets himself a bona fide playmaking safety in the secondary. The draft will allow the Eagles the opportunity to grab either Alabama's Ha Ha Clinton-Dix or Louisville's Calvin Pryor in the first round. Even so, general manager Howie Roseman will need to strongly think about signing a safety in the free-agent market.

Ranked in reverse order, here are 10 plausible players the team could sign to fill the void at safety.
