PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia Eagles selected Utah State cornerback Curtis Marsh with the 90th overall pick in the NFL draft.

The 6-foot-1, 197-pound Marsh could compete for a starting spot opposite Pro Bowl cornerback Asante Samuel. The Eagles used Ellis Hobbs and Dimitri Patterson at right cornerback last year. Hobbs sustained a career-ending neck injury, and Patterson is not under contract.

Marsh converted from running back before the 2009 season, started 12 games at cornerback last year and had two interceptions.

The Eagles traded down in the third round, sending the 85th pick to Baltimore for the third-round pick they used to get Marsh and a sixth-round choice (No. 191).
