In the second round of the 2015 draft, the Eagles traded up for Utah defensive back Eric Rowe with the No. 47 overall pick.  To move up, Philadelphia sent Miami a pair of fifth round picks (145 and 156) for 47 and a sixth rounder (191).

Rowe made 45 starts for the Utes, starting out his college career playing free safety during his first three seasons before becoming a cornerback as a senior.

"We are looking for safeties that can cover, he can play corner, he may start out at corner," Eagles head coach Chip Kelly said about Rowe.

Rowe could be a starting cornerback or free safety and much like the Eagles first rounder, Nelson Agholor, he fits the checklist Chip Kelly looks for - versatility.

One of the things coach Kelly pointed out about Rowe was his combine numbers, where he was a top performer, running 4.45 with a 39-inch vertical and 10-foot-5 broad jump.

Kelly indicated that Rowe will start out as a corner and should fit in opposite of Byron Maxwell on the outside.

“Eric Rowe is kind of a cornerback/safety tweener," Scott Wright, of explained on the Sports Bash after the senior bowl.  "He’s played both and he’s a situation where teams need to figure out which direction they wanna go with him.  He has a chance at corner and obviously if it doesn’t work out there, you can always go to plan B and move him inside.”
