The Philadelphia Eagles make a move to bolster the secondary here, bringing in Grant Delpit after letting Malcolm Jenkins walk via free agency. Outside of Xavier McKinney, Delpit is the best overall safety in this draft class, and would join a group that already includes Jalen Mills and Rodney McLeod.
Delpit is an exciting young defensive back, and the Eagles certainly need to bolster their defensive backfield heading into next season. They just were not good enough to deal with the better offenses in the NFC in 2019, and in Delpit, they get a young player who can help right away, but also be a long-term solution.
With a healthy Carson Wentz returning in 2020, the Eagles are going to be the team to beat in the NFC East, and will be looking to do a rare thing and repeat in the division. They have some bigger needs on this roster, but Delpit is a special talent, and the Eagles are looking to build this defense up for the long haul.
The Minnesota Vikings made a big move early in the league’s legal tampering period, sending Stefon Diggs to the Buffalo Bills for a first round pick among other things. That move leaves a bit of a void at the wide receiver position, but they can take care of that with the No. 22 overall selection this April.
Of course, the Vikings still have a very dangerous weapon in Adam Thielen, and here, they add Justin Jefferson, a dynamic playmaker for the LSU Tigers last season. This is a guy who can flat out get it done in the red zone, and luckily for him, he does not even have to change the color his uniform.
Jokes aside, this is a guy who can take the lid off the defense, and after locking up Kirk Cousins on a two-year extension, the Vikings go and get him another weapon. Minnesota has the talent on both side of the ball to be a contender in the NFC North next season, and should be able to take their next step forward.
