1. Josh Jobe

While the summer of 2022 hasn’t quite gone as planned for Kary Vincent Jr. and Tay Gowan, the same can’t be said for Josh Jobe.

A former starter at Alabama who was largely expected to be drafted but found himself unemployed when the final pick was announced, Jobe secured less guaranteed money than Mario Goodrich, whom he knew well from when the Crimson Tide went toe to toe with the Clemson Tigers in the college playoffs, but has largely made the most of his opportunity to stick around in South Philly.

Despite having a tough go versus the New York Jets, allowing five catches on the evening, Jobe was much better against the Browns, where he turned in a great effort as a tackler and held up much better against the pass. Even if he isn’t the fastest corner around, Jobe has extensive experience covering some of the best wide receivers the NCAA had to offer over the past few years, and even if he didn’t always come out on the “right” side of the matchup, that experience has proven valuable as he transitions to the NFL.

Unless Jobe plays really poorly, gets overshadowed by Kary Vincent Jr. and/or Tay Gowan, or suffers an injury, he looks like a real favorite to make the 53-man roster as the team’s fourth outside cornerback behind Darius Slay, James Bradberry, and Zech MePhearson.
