3 Sleepers On The Eagles Secondary

1.Rodney McLeod

Eagles Saftey Rodney McLeod has been with the team since 2016 and now he is playing with 1 year left on the deal and he has something to Prove . Yes he has had good season but not really a “Break out” year like we have been waiting for. Now with Safety Malcolm Jenkins departed from Philly Rodney McLeod will be our #1 Saftey. Now he has the chance to be one of the leaders of the defense and play a key role in the defense this season. With McLeod having alot to prove this year he can really have that “Breakout” year that we would all like to see.

2. Cre’von Leblanc

Cre’von Leblanc is an interesting guy. He was a little bit of a Journey men, until he found a home in Philly. In his first Playoff game he had an interception against one of the most accurate QBs of all time, Drew Brees. So he has shown promise. His 2019/20 Season started late due to a foot injury but he eventually came back and played slot and outside corner. He had a great game against the giants week 17 to clinch the Division . I think we will rotate the defense this year and if he take advantage of his opportunities he can be a really Key part of our defense in the future

3. Avontae Maddox

Eagles CB Avontae Maddox is a very versatile corner who has played CB, Slot CB, And safety in the eagles defense and I think he is a big sleeper not just on this defense but in the league, Here’s Why. First off what alot of Defensive coordinators like is versatility just in case of injury or suspension. And he has that so you can move him anywhere in the secondary and he can be productive. Maddox in 2018 when , Jalen Mills , Ronald Darby, and Rodney McLeod was out he step up and produced he had great games and help Malcolm Jenkins carry that defense especially in the game against the LA Rams when he had a big interception to help gain momentum and win the game . Avontae Maddox is really good and as long as he stays healthy he could very well be one of the starting corners in this eagles secondary
