The 5-foot-11 cover man from Florida has excellent speed and showed flashes of playmaking ability. Watkins brings versatility to the Eagles defensive backfield -- he lined up as a corner, safety, nickel back and played on special teams.

Jaylen is the half brother of Buffalo Bills first-round pick Sammy Watkins. The Eagles and Bills do not play next season.
