2015 NFL mock draft: Eagles select Eric Rowe

The Philadelphia Eagles take Eric Rowe with the 20th pick of the 2015 POD Community Mock Draft.

With the 20th pick in Pride Of Detroit's 2015 NFL mock draft, the Philadelphia Eagles select Utah cornerback Eric Rowe. N4ry4 is serving as the Eagles' general manager, and his reasoning for the pick is below.

The Eagles have made moves to improve their secondary, most notably of which was the signing of Byron Maxwell. However, the team can still stand to add talent at both corner and safety. Rowe played his final year at corner after three at safety, so he offers plenty of versatility to go along with his strong upside, physicality and cover skills.

I was hoping to add a pass-rushing OLB here, as that is a bigger need, but with many of the top prospects off the board, I think Rowe offers Philly the best mix of value and talent at this point in the first round.
