One area the Philadelphia Eagles really struggled this past season was defending the pass, which shouldn't come as much of a surprise considering how important Jonathan Gannon was in that regard.

With that being said, you had to assume going into this past season that the player personnel the Eagles had would be good enough to keep that unit at least in the upper half of the league, but that wasn't the case.

Teams threw all over the Eagles for the entirety of the 2023 season. They ranked 31st in passing yards allowed and only managed nine interceptions as a team (25th in the league) all of last season. But the 2023 season was not only disappointing for the Eagles as a whole, it was a steep drop for cornerback James Bradberry.

Bradberry was so instrumental for the Eagles in 2022, but his 2023 season was one to forget, to say the least. He allowed a career-worst 11 touchdowns in coverage last season, and teams targeted him 101 total times last year. No matter how many years you've been in the league, if you're getting targeted that many times every week, teams have seen on film that you're a liability and a weakness to be attacked.

Don't be shocked at all to see Bradberry replaced in the 2024 NFL Draft.
