Contrary to the popular belief that the Eagles might spend a high pick on a corner in the draft, the Eagles held out until the third round to draft developmental corner Curtis Marsh.
Marsh has all the physical tools, standing at 6'1'', 197 pounds. He runs in the 4.4-second range, but has only had one full season playing at cornerback, having converted from running back.
Last year's starting corner, Dimitri Patterson, is nothing more than a solid nickel or dime corner; he proved he cannot consistently play at a starting level. Though he is a tough, hard-nosed football player, he does not have the speed to stay on top of receivers.
Trevard Lindley is a sleeper to start, but like Marsh, he is still something of a project. Like Patterson, some have questioned his speed.
The Eagles' right-corner position, opposite Asante Samuel, must be addressed in the free-agent market or through a trade, as the in-house options are just not qualified enough.
Here are five possible corners to pursue.
