Thurmond is expected to start next to Malcolm Jenkins at safety, according to CSN Philadelphia's Geoff Mosher.

The Eagles moved Thurmond to safety this offseason, and while he was initially expected to compete for a starting job, it now seems he may essentially be handed one. Second-round rookie Eric Rowe will compete for a starting spot at cornerback, and the Eagles' other options to play safety are underwhelming. Thurmond's role probably won't be conducive to piling up tackles, given that he's on the smaller (and faster) side of the safety spectrum.

Thurmond, who is competing for a starting safety spot, continues to draw praise from head coach Chip Kelly, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. "Walt's done a really nice job," Kelly said. "He's probably been our most productive guy in the secondary in terms of pass breakups and strips and things like that. He always seems to be around the ball, so he seems like he's fitting in there right now. But again, we still don't have pads on, we're still evaluating guys with helmets and shorts and T-shirts."

The 27-year-old Thurmond has exclusively played cornerback during his NFL career, but he's expected to compete for a starting safety spot this season, with Earl Wolff (knee) assumed to be the primary competitor. Wolff has yet to participate in OTA practices in the wake of November knee surgery, whereas Thurmond seems to have made a full recovery from the torn pectoral that cost him nearly all of 2014. Even if he wins the starting job, Thurmond is unlikely to warrant consideration in most IDP leagues, as Nate Allen recorded just 62 tackles in 15 games while playing alongside Malcolm Jenkins last season.
