The fourth and final day of 2016 NFL Combine on-field drills is here. The following position groups are scheduled to work out: cornerbacks and safeties. The action starts at 9 AM EST and will be aired on NFL Network. Click here for a full list of the workouts and combine participants. The Philadelphia Eagles potentially need some more help in their secondary.

Safety

[Eagles Position Review]

The Eagles have a big need at safety if Walter Thurmond is set to hit the market, as expected. The Birds will need to find a new starter to pair with Malcolm Jenkins. The team is reportedly looking for a safety in free agency, so they may be able to address the position there, but it can't to add one in the 2016 NFL Draft at some point as well. There might be one available in the middle rounds.

1. Karl Joseph, West Virginia
2. Vonn Bell, Ohio State
3. Darien Thompson, Boise State
4. Miles Killebrew, Southern Utah
5. Jeremy Cash, Duke

Cornerback

[Eagles Position Review]

The Eagles are likely set at starting cornerback with Byron Maxwell and Eric Rowe. Beyond that, the team's cornerback depth is unproven. Veterans Nolan Carroll and E.J. Biggers are scheduled to be free agents. Philadelphia could afford to add some more depth at this position if the right player is available.

4. Eli Apple, Ohio State
