The Philadelphia Eagles showed surprising promise in 2016 behind rookie quarterback Carson Wentz before falling back to the pack. The team has many needs to address in the 2017 NFL Draft, which they will be hosting this April. With either the 14th or 15 pick in the first round (depending on a coin toss), these are four prospects the team should consider drafting.

CB Teez Tabor, Florida Gators

Tabor has the ability to bump and run with the best of them, a useful attribute in Jim Schwartz's defense. He is long and rangy and has the right skillset for the Eagles. He comes with problems, though. He was suspended twice at Florida, once for getting into a fight with a teammate and once for refusing to take a drug test.

The team will have to make it clear that there won't be second chances for him if they choose to draft him.

CB Sidney Jones, Washington Huskies

This is a position of need for the Eagles. Whether in the draft or free agency, the team will have to address the cornerback position, especially to compete with the passing games in the NFC East. Jones has the cover ability and speed to keep up with wide receivers in the NFL and will help the team solve their problem with giving up big plays last season.

RB Dalvin Cook, Florida State

Cook is one of the best running backs in the 2017 NFL Draft, a position where the Eagles have struggled to get steady production. He can get loose in the open field, much like former running back LeSean McCoy could do.

He can't catch much out of the backfield, though, so he won't be a good check-down option for Carson Wentz.

WR Corey Davis, Western Michigan

Wide receiver is the most discussed position surrounding the Eagles' offseason. They are interested in bringing back DeSean Jackson in free agency, but they should target a wideout early in the draft as well.

Corey Davis was a record-setting monster in college. He is big and fast, but is also a strong route-runner. He did not play in a major college conference, though, so he may require some time to adjust to the NFL.
