For this week’s PE.com column I decided to put together my first Eagles mock draft of the year. First, let’s go over a couple of things. This is not my ideal scenario. Obviously that would be me and Megan Fox sitting in a hot tub, sharing a bag of Funyuns and talking to new Eagle Sammy Watkins. This mock draft is players I think the Eagles like that also fit the scheme and are appropriate value. As much as I’d love to have Lamarcus Joyner coming to Philly in the 3rd round, that isn’t realistic.
The thing that really stood out to me is that we need more picks. The Eagles have these picks as of now:
1st Round – No. 22 Overall
2nd Round – No. 54 Overall
3rd Round – No. 86 Overall
4th Round – No. 122 Overall
5th Round – No. 162 Overall
7th Round – No. 237 Overall
I want more picks. There will be guys of interest in the 3rd, 4th and even the 5th rounds. Depending on how things play out at 22, I would have interest in moving back from 22 to add more choices. And I still would like to see Brandon Graham dealt, either for a player or for a pick.
Feel free to ask questions about the mock. Feel free to rip me (as if you would hesitate). Just be gentle since I am a delicate flower.
