Rasul Douglas Added To Cornerback Mix

Posted Apr 28, 2017

The Eagles doubled up on cornerbacks on Day Two of the 2017 NFL Draft as they followed up their second-round pick of Sidney Jones by selecting West Virginia's Rasul Douglas with the 99th-overall pick.

A tall, physical corner at 6-2, 209 pounds, Douglas became a full-time starter for the Mountaineers in 2016, a season in which he recorded an incredible eight interceptions, tied for the most of any FBS player in the nation. At the NFL Combine, Douglas ran a 4.59 40-yard dash and displayed a 120-inch broad jump. 

Douglas' physical, confident style of play fits perfectly into what defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz is looking for at the position. The Eagles surely hope that Douglas and Jones can develop together into a dynamic duo in the secondary for years to come.
