Can Eric Rowe end Eagles long time cornerback drought? 
The second-round pick will get his first start vs. Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. PHILADELPHIA -- There are probably about 31 easier places for a NFL cornerback to make his starting debut than at New England against Tom Brady and the Patriots. That's Eric Rowe' s situation Sunday when he replacesNolan Carroll , on injured reserve with a broken ankle, as theEagles  starting corner opposite Byron Maxwell.

None of them have ever become full-time starters, most never started a game, seven are no longer in the NFL, two are in the CFL and one is in prison. EAGLES: Is defense's problem scheme or talent?

Dexter Wynn, 2004, 6th round -- started one game for the Texans, out of football since 2009. Rashad Barksdale, 2007, 6th round -- bounced around with five teams in two years, never started, was last seen with the Cleveland Gladiators of the Arena League. Jack Ikegwuonu, 2008, 4th round -- spent a year on the practice squad, activated for a few games in '09; pleaded guilty to a string of armed robb
