Eagles Draft CB Quinyon Mitchell in the First Round with the 22nd overall pick

The Philadelphia Eagles didn’t trade up or back in the 2024 NFL Draft. They selected high rated cornerback Quinyon Mitchell from Toledo with 22nd pick .

He played in an off coverage Cover-3 scheme which should fit nicely in a Vic Fangio scheme. He does get tricked on double moves but his anticipation is outstanding.

Howie starts with a cornerback in round 1 as time will tell what the future hold from here.

Per PFF:
Mitchell recorded some of the best advanced coverage metrics over a two-year sample size in the PFF college era. He has all the ability in the world to be a CB1 at the next level, but his lack of experience in press coverage could stop him from being a unanimous first-round pick on every team’s board

As Eagles fans we love it and will see what happens next year. Go Birds! Here is more on Quinyon Mitchell:
