The Philadelphia Eagles’ season-ending loss of veteran left tackle Jason Peters should make offensive line a priority in the NFL Draft.

But value isn’t exactly a thing here, meaning the Eagles likely shift their focus to other areas.

Philly’s secondary could still use a bit of work, and Colorado cornerback Isaiah Oliver is a nice find at the tail end of Round 1. At 6-foot-1 and 195 pounds, he has the physical makeup desired at the NFL level and has already displayed quality shutdown capabilities necessary to play the position as a pro.

A smaller-school pedigree might be keeping Oliver from climbing higher on this list. But his 12 passes broken up this season are a nice sign he’s more than adept getting between opponents’ quarterbacks and their receiving targets.
