3. Kary Vincent Jr.

Kary Vincent Jr. came to Philadelphia by way of the Denver Broncos, where he was acquired at the 2022 trade deadline for a sixth-round pick.

Now at the time, this deal felt beyond confusing; Vincent was a seventh-round pick in 2021 and barely played for the Broncos as a rookie. Unless Howie Roseman had a very specific plan for the LSU product, the prospect of adding him to the roster felt like just another lottery ticket for a team that has never had much success with cornerback development.

Unfortunately, Vincent’s lack of playing time in Denver followed him to the City of Brotherly Love, as he played just two games with one start and logged just 29 defensive snaps. He played almost all of his snaps on the outside, which felt sort of antithetical at the time considering his size, and basically faded into the footnotes of Philadelphia sports history.

In 2022, Vincent has largely spent his time playing with the two and threes on the outside. He logged three tackles versus two catches and a defensive holding call in Cleveland and is expected to start versus Miami opposite either Josh Jobe or Tay Gowan.

Can Vincent’s speed overshadow his lack of size? Maybe so, but he has to be considered a long shot to make the Philadelphia Eagles’ roster.
