New Wings – Philadelphia Eagles 2024 Draft Profile

In 2023 it wasn’t so lovely for the Philadelphia Eagles. Injuries, coaching inconsistencies and a first round exit plagued them, and they will now look to bounce back in 2024. They will look to do it the way they have done it for years now and look to the draft to fix their issues.


Kool-Aid McKinstry, CB, Alabama

Christian Haynes, OL, UConn

Trevin Wallace, LB, Kentucky


Philly has to shore up their secondary, and after releasing Avonte Maddox they will need to get a solid young corner.

Kool-Aid McKinstry has all the tools to be an early contributor in the secondary. His length, speed, and smooth backpedal help him to stay with shifty receivers in man coverage. He is aggressive when pressing and attacks to ball like a receiver when its in the air. Darius Slay and James Bradberry are on the wrong side of 30 and having a player like McKinstry gives the Eagles an heir apparent once they move on.

With the retirement of long-time center Jason Kelce, Philly will need to fill either guard or center. Cam Jurgens seems like the next up at the center spot, so getting a stout guard makes the most sense.

Christian Haynes is one of the most highly sought after guards in the draft and for good reason. Haynes has great hand placement and anchors well against bull rushers from the interior. He routinely moves men at the point of attack and is still able to get to the second level to create lanes for runners. Getting Haynes in the second round would allow the Eagles to remain stout up front for pennies on the dollar.

Next on the docket should be linebacker for the Eagles.

They have tried to steady the position over the years to no avail. They can address it with a solid pickup in the mid rounds of the draft.

Trevin Wallace is a sideline to sideline backer with natural instincts for the position. He has a good feel for covering in space or mirroring up the seams. Wallace is also very durable, playing 35 of 36 games in college. Philly has needed an early contributor and Wallace fits the bill like a glove.

It’s not over for Philly and with a draft class of hits they could put themselves back into the contender’s rink.
