Eagles use 19th overall on Clemson corner Andrew Booth Jr
The Philadelphia Eagles are finally on the clock using their own first-round pick and they’re definitely a better team than they were prior. Having already added Ohio State wide receiver Garrett Wilson and Utah linebacker Devin Lloyd, the team would benefit from adding a dynamic corner opposite of Darius Slay.
Clemson cornerback Andrew Booth Jr is one of the more athletic corners in the draft and should fit in with the Eagles. Booth isn’t at the same level as Gardener or Stingley, so he would benefit from being a second corner. At 6-feet, Booth was facing off against the ACC’s top wideouts and ended his junior season with 3 interceptions and 5 pass deflections.
Like Lloyd against the NFC East running backs, Booth would help the Eagles matchup against Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper and CeeDee Lamb, Giant’s wide receiver’s Kenny Golladay and Kadrius Toney, and Commander’s wide receiver’s Terry McClaurin and Curtis Samuel.
Walking away from the fist with likely another first or second-rounder and Booth, Lloyd, and Wilson is a major upgrade for the Eagles. The Eagles will likely find out in 2022 if Jalen Hurts is their answer at quarterback for the future, but they would help him out with these roster moves.
