Eagles Add a Pair of 4th Round Picks

The Eagles bounced back from a controversial couple of days to play it a bit more safe in the fourth round.

S K’Von Wallace – Clemson

The Eagles added a DB who is a gifted athlete and versatile player. Wallace played in the slot a lot for Clemson. He can also play in the box or back deep. He was a solid playmaker and his skill set allowed them to be creative. Wallace is a good tackler and solid hitter. He could take over in the Malcolm Jenkins role in the future.

Wallace was expected to go in the second or third round. He only ran 4.53 at the Combine. That’s not slow, but it’s not great either. It is also possible his versatility hurt him. Was he a slot or SS or FS? The Eagles like to be creative with their safeties so this is a good fit.

The Eagles needed to get young talent for the back end of the defense. They can still add a CB, but I felt it was critical to add a safety. Jalen Mills only has a 1-year deal and Rodney McLeod is an older player. Wallace could be a key safety in the future. I don’t expect him to start this season, but the Eagles will find a way to get him on the field. If he plays well, he can carve out a role.

OL Jack Driscoll – Auburn

Driscoll played RT for the Tigers, but he was described as a guard when his name was called. He is 6-5, 306 and has the ability to play either spot. I think he’s got starting potential.

Here are my quick notes on Driscoll:

RT. Plays with good pad level. Feisty. Pretty good feet. Comfortable in pass pro. Plays under control. Good effort in the run game. Uses his hands well.

The Eagles added a big, tough, veteran OL. I’m always in favor of that.


The Eagles traded pick 146 to Dallas for 164 and a fifth round pick in 2021. I have no issues with moving back and adding the future pick.
