As the NFL draft fast approaches, a familiar name is resurfacing and could be an option for the Eagles at No. 12 overall.

Virginia Tech cornerback Caleb Farley recently received some good news on his surgically repaired back and he’s definitely in play to be a first-round pick.

After opting out of the 2020 season, Farley had surgery in late March, an outpatient procedure to clean up discs in his back, but he’s had a fan in Mel Kiper since day one.

“He’s got the size, he’s a former wide receiver,” Kiper told Arizona Sports’ Doug & Wolf on March 1. “He played really well in 2019 as a cover corner, ball-skill down the field, locating the ball down the field. He’s good in front, he’s good behind. What he doesn’t do is tackle well enough.”

The 6-foot-2, 207-pound corner posted six interceptions and 19 passes defended over the 2018-19 seasons and he is now a viable option for Howie Roseman and the Eagles.
