The Philadelphia Eagles secondary — namely the cornerback position — is probably the one area of the team that is constantly in flux due to injury and competition. With the regular season just one week away, defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz is still trying to determine a depth chart at the cornerback position.

The only sure bets in the secondary seem to be Ronald Darby and Avonte Maddox, whom Schwartz can’t stop raving about. During his Monday morning press conference, the Eagles defensive coordinator praised the second-year cornerback’s talent and versatility for his size.

Schwartz went on to say that he wouldn’t reveal the Eagles depth chart at cornerback, hinting at a committee approach to the position.

Unless Darby suffers a setback, expect the high paid cornerback to start opposite Rasul Douglas, with Maddox lined up in the slot.
