NFC East Rivals Round 3: Giants Plan For The Future, Cowboys & Eagles Double Dip At CB

Recapping the 3rd round selections made by the Redskins division rivals

NCAA Football: West Virginia at Kansas John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

New York Giants

The Giants look to the future with the selection of Davis Webb with the 87th pick. Webb will have the opportunity to sit behind the entrenched starter, Eli Manning for a few years until he gets his opportunity to take the reigns. Webb has a live arm but needs to get better with pocket awareness, consistency, and above all else his accuracy. Holding the clipboard for two or three seasons couldn't be better for his development. Will the Redskins have to worry about Webb in the 2020 season?

Dallas Cowboys

Dallas added to their contribution at cornerback with the selection of Jourdan Lewis with the 92nd pick. Previously in the second round, the Cowboys selected corner Chidobe Awuzie. Both Awuzie and Lewis can play the boundary but they both project well in the slot. The Cowboys took a similar approach to replenishing the position that Carolina took last year by letting their two starting corners go. The young men will certainly have their growing pains and will have to get “re-accommodated” to the game by Terrelle Pryor, Josh Doctson, and Jamison Crowder but they could develop into a nice tandem down the road in a few years. Jourdan Lewis especially could be a potential star as a slot CB.

Philadelphia Eagles

Just like Dallas, the Eagles decided to double dip at a position of need by selecting Rasul Douglas with the 99th pick. Unlike Jones, Douglas will presumably be ready for the start of the season. Douglas had a highly productive year this past season and really shined at the Senior Bowl. He has the measurables of the new NFL prototype at CB. Douglas has the physical ability to stick with the Redskins receivers the question with him will be how quickly he acclimates to the NFL.


Who will have the better CB tandem in a few years?
