Ron Brooks and Leodis McKelvin ran as the Eagles' starting cornerbacks at last week's voluntary workouts.
When the Eagles went into sub-packages, second-year CB Eric Rowe entered as the third corner, moving Brooks into the slot. Brooks and McKelvin may simply be getting the early nod because of their expertise with DC Jim Schwartz'a defense after playing for him in Buffalo, but Brooks was signed to a three-year deal despite playing only 54 defensive snaps last season.

Eagles signed CB Ron Brooks, formerly of the Bills, to a three-year, $6 million contract.

Brooks missed time with a concussion last year and was limited to 54 snaps. Philadelphia's cornerback play was lacking last season with starters Byron Maxwell and Nolan Carroll both receiving negative grades from PFF. Maxwell was traded and Carroll is a free agent so Brooks should see snaps as long as he can stay healthy. Brooks played under DC Jim Schwartz in Buffalo in 2014.

Bills selected LSU CB Ron Brooks with the No. 124 overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft.

After playing in the shadow of Patrick Peterson, Morris Claiborne and Tyrann Mathieu, Brooks had a limited role in college but the talent is definitely there. As a top high school recruit, Brooks has tremendous athleticism but his skills need to be refined. Brooks has the physicality to stay with receivers down the field and burst to close in zone. A tremendous special teams asset, Brooks is a project worth investing in.
