3 Players the Eagles Absolutely Should Draft

The post-Nick Foles area (once again) begins in Philadelphia. While the Eagles have done well to add playmakers on offense, like DeSean Jackson, and defense, like Malik Jackson, there are several positions that are in dire need of reinforcements. These players are perfect for what Doug Pederson wants to do. 

3. JJ Arcega-Whiteside, WR, Stanford

He's slow as molasses and not the best athlete, but Arcega-Whiteside catches EVERYTHING thrown near him. Lethal in the red zone, the 6-3, 220-pound receiver was an unstoppable force on jump balls. While Jackson and Nelson Agholor are the speedy, creative receivers, having both Arcega-Whietside and Alshon Jeffrey available in the red zone and on third down would be a dream for Carson Wentz. 

2. Josh Jacobs, RB, Alabama

Alright, he may not be the fastest running back in the world. Literally everything else about his game stands out. A powerful, violent runner with excellent vision, Jacobs is a low floor player that could start right away. Given the dearth of talent in Philly's backfield right now, drafting Jacobs could keep the Eagles offense humming along without Jay Ajayi. 

1. Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, S, Florida

Anyone who watched even half of an Eagles game saw an extremely poor secondary outside of Malcolm Jenkins. A former corner with experience as a nickel corner and deep safety, Gardner-Johnson is a Swiss Army knife that can line up anywhere in the defensive backfield and excel. Defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz, who is known to use his defensive backs in a variety of creative ways, would have a field day using Gardner-Johnson.
