OT was a big choice when Peters went down but now the signings of Bell and Dunlap eliminates that need. The Eagles traded for DeMeco Ryans at ILB where they need help. Chaney and Matthews are still horrible and they could have taken Kuechley to pair up with Ryans but he is off the board. DT or CB is the next needs to fill. I am choosing to fill the CB role on the team because DT can be filled after the first round and really is only needed for depth. Let's face it as DRC went way down in performance and Asante Samuel is not coming back at this point as they look to trade him. I am picking Janoris Jenkins at 15. Jenkins has that rare combination of instincts, quickness, and agility needed to be a truly great cover cornerback. Scouts at the Senior Bowl likened his play to that of several-time All-Pro Asante Samuel. So I think it fits in to lose Samuel and find his direct replacement sitting there in the draft this year.
This is an interesting pick. Cornerback does not seem to be a concern and Jenkins was not projected to go this high. Sure, the Eagles might lose Asante Samuel, but that is partly why they acquired Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. They also have needs elsewhere. Granted, the best prospects at ILB and safety are off the board, but at receiver, Kendall wright would not be a bad pick.
