Philadelphia Eagles

The Eagles again addressed defense with the 43rd overall pick, choosing the highly-touted, but currently injured defensive back Sidney Jones of Washington.

If not for an Achilles injury during pre-draft workouts, he may have been a top-15 pick. This is a player that may take a redshirt year for the Eagles, then return in 2018 to be embarrassed by Jamison Crowder and Jordan Reed.

New York Giants

The Giants may have filled the humongous hole left behind by Jonathan Hankins. With the 55th pick they took Dalvin Tomlinson, the defensive tackle who played beside Jonathan Allen at Alabama. Tomlinson might start day one beside Snacks Harrison.

With a tight end comparable to Jordan Reed and a plug-and-play defender to fill in for Hankins, Jerry Reese is having a decent draft so far. The OL still stinks though.

Dallas Cowboys

The Cowboys lost Barry Church, JJ Wilcox, Brandon Carr and Morris Claiborne this offseason. In the second round, they drafted Chidobe Awuzie, CB from Colorado.

Awuzie may be a day one starter for the Cowboys, which means he’s likely checking Crowder, Pryor, Doctson, or if he’s in the slot, Reed. Good luck with that.
