Can Mills be a starter? He's had a year of coaching and it seems Schwartz likes him. He was reported to be working with a speed coach this offseason.
QUOTE
6'0", 191 lbs, 40-yard dash 4.48 seconds, four-year starter from deep, talented conference. Has slot cover ability. Hips are loose and he's able to open and mirror receivers from press. Uses crisp, controlled footwork out of his transitions. Locates the deep pass and can turn to make plays on the ball. Very aware from zone and handles his responsibilities without many busts. Good blitzer from the slot. Thin­-waisted with a finesse frame.Takes iffy angles to the ball and isn’t as committed in run support as evaluators would like. Was not a productive tackler near the line of scrimmage. Mix and match traits might have him caught between slot corner and free safety. Lacks desired speed to carry vertical threats. Shows some confusion on combo routes.


Add in Robinson, potentially in the slot and a rookie, could the secondary be improved?

Does Robinson have a history of working from the slot?

As I’ve stated many times the Eagles need help from the slot corner position. Or, basically I want Malcolm Jenkins to stay at safety, either one. But Robinson was considered a good slot corner before heading to the Colts in 2016. In 2015, Robinson allowed only 0.78 yards per coverage snap from the slot position which was good for third among slot corners, according to Pro Football Focus. Also according to PFF, he was their 30th ranked corner in 2015.

Here’s what they had to say about him:

In five years, Robinson typically graded out above-average with the Saints, and had a career resurgence with the Chargers. He allowed just 8.9 yards per catch, which was the best for cornerbacks thrown at 40 or more times last season. He would play outside in San Diego’s base defense at times, and then would play in the slot in the Chargers’ nickel. When he lined up in the slot, he allowed just 0.78 yards per coverage snap—2nd best for cornerbacks with at least 200 coverage snaps in the slot, behind only Chris Harris.
