K’Von Wallace, stand up, you are the newest Philadelphia Eagle. Picked with the 127th pick, the former safety at Highland Springs High School went to Clemson.
Ranked as the 34th best prospect in Virinia by Rivals, he was a high school teammate of Greg Dortch and Mekhi Becton. Those teammates won the first of four consecutive state championships at Highland Springs.
Over four seasons at Clemson, Wallace played in 45 games, and 15 in each of his final two seasons. Clemson won two national titles over his time in Death Valley.
After winning a state title at Highland Springs in Richmond, VA, Wallace made 156 tackles at Clemson and picked off five passes. His one interception returned for a score led the ACC in 2019 and was good for seventh in the nation as a senior. His two forced fumbles were also good for ninth in the ACC as a senior.
As a junior, Wallace was an honorable mention to the All-ACC team. He also ran a 4.53 40-yard dash at the Combine.

While he played some safety and a lot of big nickel in 2019, his biggest impact came when cutting it loose as a downhill blitzer, disrupting the run and smashing quarterbacks. Wallace plays with exceptional grit and tenacity. He unloads with everything he’s got on hit after hit. His hips may be too tight to hold up in man coverage and he lacks range as a high safety. He’s a potential backup safety capable of playing near the line and helping on special teams.- Lance Zierlein, NFL Network
K’von fits in in Philly. He should see time at least on special teams, if not in the secondary in 2020 and beyond. K’Von has a high ceiling and great potential.
