Anybody who watched the Eagles in 2010 knows that they must get help at the cornerback position. Time and time again, quarterbacks were able to dial up the receivers who was matched up against the likes of Ellis Hobbs, Dimitri Patterson and Trevard Lindley. Something must be done about it. That’s why the Birds are likely to be looking for a cornerback with their first couple of picks.
Here’s a look at what the Top 10 cornerback group looks like, along with Brandon Burton of Utah, who looks very good as well.
