2. Elijah Campbell, DB

While many aspects of the Eagles' defense need improving, the secondary should be near the top of the priority list. Teams had a field day throwing the ball against Philadelphia as the team surrendered the second-most passing yards during the regular season.

The Dolphins don't really have any big-name defensive backs for the Eagles to pursue this offseason, however, Elijah Campbell could be a solid depth piece to add.

The 2023 campaign was Campbell's busiest to date, setting career-highs regarding offensive (122) and special teams (301) snaps across 15 games with one start. Even though his defensive playing time was sparse, the 28-year-old DB still tallied 10 solo tackles and a broken-up pass while only allowing a 55.6% completion rate and 87.7 passer rating on nine targets.

It's a small sample size, yes, but it also proves that he can be effective in a limited capacity.

Not every free-agent signing has to be a blockbuster. Sometimes it's the smaller deals that make the difference between contenders and pretenders, which is why signing luring Campbell to Philadelphia could be a low-risk, high-reward situation.
