Ranking the 25 Best Eagles: Avonte Maddox has No. 14 Covered

When the Eagles drafted Avonte Maddox in the fourth round of the 2018 draft, the goal was to develop a top-tier slot cornerback.

In Mike Tyson’s parlance, the Philadelphia defense got punched in the mouth a little too often in Maddox’s first three seasons, however, forcing the Detroit native to show off his versatility at times as circumstance made sure the original plan kept getting pushed back.

It wasn’t until 2021 and a new defensive regime that Maddox was finally able to settle into his projected position and excel to the point he was rewarded with a second contract in-season, a three-year, $22.5 million extension which is not exactly chump change for the often devalued inside CB position.
