The Eagles met with a potential first-round pick on Tuesday, who might be available when the team picks at No. 22 next Thursday in the NFL Draft.

The Eagles were one of four teams that Iowa defensive back Cooper DeJean met with Pittsburgh, Seattle and Buffalo being the others.

DeJean is coming off a fractured fibula in mid-November and missed the remainder of the season but was still named a Unanimous consensus All-American in 2023.

He ran a 4.42 40 at his Pro Day after he had to delay his Pro Day workout due to the injury.

He did a little bit of everything for Iowa, recording 41 tackles, two interceptions, five pass break-ups, and is a factor on special teams, returning 21 punts for 241 yards with one touchdown and a long return of 70 yards.

As a junior he started 10 games at corner and three more as a "leo"  for Iowa, making 75 tackles, five interceptions for 91 yards and three touchdowns, and recorded eight pass breakups.

Some talent evaluators look at him as a safety and others look at him as a corner. He has been described as a "swiss army knife" that can help a defense out in multiple ways and help out on special teams, in the return game.

The Eagles' own the 22nd pick in the 2024 NFL Draft and also pick No. 50 and 53 in Round 2.  You can listen to the NFL Draft on Thursday April 25th on 97.3 ESPN.
