In a mock draft I wrote before the combine, I had the Eagles taking Justin Gilbert at 22nd overall. But Justin Gilbert completely dominated the combine. His 4.37 40-yard dash time was tied for best among all corners, and he excelled at all the positional drills. He is now looking a top-10 pick.
If he Eagles can't get Gilbert, they will likely address another pressing need: the safety position.
Nate Allen was adequate as a free safety last season, but he is a free agent and not guaranteed to return. Patrick Chung was a horrendous strong safety and will be cut soon.
Ha Ha Clinton-Dix will likely be off the board sooner than 22nd overall due to his coverage skills, but it will be hard for the Eagles to pass on Calvin Pryor.
Pryor has great instincts and delivers bone-crushing hits. See the attached video if you want proof of that. And while he didn't blow away the competition at the combine, his performance was adequate. He recorded a 4.58 40 time, tied with Clinton-Dix, and looked good overall in his position drills, according to Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun Sentinel.
If he pans out, the Eagles could be getting a poor man's Brian Dawkins.
