Eagles Add Versatile Safety K’Von Wallace in Third Round of Draft
The Eagles added some versatility to their secondary on Day 3 of the NFL Draft on Saturday, adding Clemson safety K'Von Wallace with pick 127.
Wallace was a key contributor on two Clemson National Championship teams (2018, 2016) and a three-year starting strong safety. He had an impressive combine, running 4.53 second 40-yard dash and showing explosiveness with a 38-inch leap.
Overall, he finished his career with 178 total tackles (5.5 TFLs), 21 PBUs, five INTs, two sacks and two FFs in 59 career games (36 starts)
As a senior in 2019, he made 81 tackles,and broke up 12 pass. He also has experience covering the slot.
The 5-foot-11, 206-pound safety projects as the type of player who can help on special teams, and can also be a defender closer to the line-of-scrimmage, as an up-in-the-box safety or slot corner.
