. They have never put much stock in the position. I wouldn't be shocked if they kept all 3 corners. Corner is the position they value most on D, unless their philosophy has changed, and they like to be able to roll them 3 deep. Its a similar situation to Vincent, Taylor, and Harris. Although the big reason I could see them moving one of them is the amount of money they have tied up in the position.
They need an impact linebacker, if Asante goes its for a linebacker. I like your other assessment with the comparison between Vincent, Taylor and Al Harris. But wouldn't it be Asomugha, DRC and Joselio Hanson. Bottom line the Eagles really, really need a linebacker (or two) badly that can be a game changer or at the very least be effective and stay healthy (see: Stewart Bradley as an example of the opposite).
