At the NFL Trade Deadline, the Eagles snare ex-LSU ‘Burner.’

The Philadelphia Eagles entered the NFL trade deadline as sellers, but emerged with an intriguing prospect. In exchange for a 2022 sixth-round pick, the team acquired cornerback Kary Vincent Jr. from the Denver Broncos.

Tom Peliserro of NFL Network was the first to disclose the transaction, which occurred just before the 4 p.m. deadline on November 2. Vincent, a seventh-round pick out of LSU, made the Broncos’ 53-man roster by a hair. Vincent, a two-sport athlete at LSU (football and track and field), used his superior speed to get into the roster. At his formal pro day, he ran a blistering 4.33 seconds in the 40-yard sprint.

According to the Beaumont Enterprise, Denver coach Vic Fangio observed of Vincent, “This kid is incredibly talented, and he was falling.” “He moves quickly. He’s a track athlete. He was falling a little bit due to injuries, but he can play nickel and has also played safety. I believe he has the potential to be a great player if we can get him healthy and ready to play professionally.”

For the Bayou Tigers, the 5-foot-10, 185-pounder — average stature for a pro cornerback – appeared in 39 games (19 starts). In 2019, he started as the nickel corner for LSU’s national championship squad. Vincent had 87 tackles, six interceptions, and 18 pass breakups in his undergraduate career while also sprinting for LSU’s nationally ranked track squad. Due to COVID-19 issues, he opted out of the 2020 season.

Denzel Ward or Tyrann Mathieu, according to the scouting report

When Vincent graduated from college, he received a lot of attention. He was compared favorably to Denzel Ward (Cleveland Browns) and Tyrann Mathieu (New Orleans Saints) by Bleacher Report (Kansas City Chiefs). To a lesser extent, the latter. Because of his “Swiss Army Knife” hybrid skills as a safety and corner, they rated him as a second-rounder with starter potential.
