Maddox was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles in the fourth round (125th overall) in the 2018 NFL Draft. He made his NFL debut during the league season opener on September 6, 2018 against the Atlanta Falcons, playing on special teams. Maddox recorded his first career interception by picking off a pass from Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota in the 26–23 overtime loss on September 30.
On September 26, 2019, late in a game between the Eagles and the Green Bay Packers, Maddox collided helmets with teammate Andrew Sendejo on an attempted tackle of Robert Tonyan and had to be carted off the field on a stretcher. The Eagles announced that Maddox had movement in all of his extremities, but was taken to a local hospital as a precaution and for further evaluation. The following day, he was released and flew home with his team.
