2015 Draft Preview

THE PICKS

1st Round – Pick 20
2nd Round- Pick 52
3rd Round – Pick 84
4th Round – Pick 113
5th Round – Pick 145
5th Round – Pick 156
6th Round – Pick 196
7th Round – Pick 237

1st RD TARGETS

The only trade-up target for me is QB Marcus Mariota. He would be a great fit for Chip Kelly’s offense and would give the Eagles a dynamic, young QB, something they haven’t had since Donovan McNabb came to town.

If the Eagles stay put at 20, here are 5 players they are likely targeting:

1 – CB Byron Jones – UConn
2 – OT Jake Fisher – Oregon
3 – CB Eric Rowe – Utah
4 – DB Damarious Randall – Arizona State
5 – WR Phillip Dorsett – Miami

The Eagles have shown serious interest in all of these players. I am fine with 4 of the players, but I don’t like Randall at pick 20. I’m not thrilled with him anywhere, but 20 is just too rich for my taste. He does fit the Eagles scheme and a position of need so I get their interest. And apparently they aren’t the only team that could be looking at him in the 1st round.

Jones played Safety for 2 years before moving to CB. He is a terrific athlete with good size. Put on the tape and you see a guy who can stick with receivers all over the field. Chip Kelly may have noticed that the Super Bowl teams each had lockdown corners (Sherman, Revis). Jones has that kind of potential. He is also a very high character guy and would fit Kelly’s culture. My only issue with him is that I wish he was more instinctive.

Fisher started at RT at Oregon in 2012 and 2013. He moved to LT as a Senior and showed good ability there. He is 6-6, 306 and has NFL athletic ability. Fisher looked great at the Combine and will be coveted by teams wanting tall, athletic OL. I like the fact he’s got a bit of a nasty streak as well. He would likely get in the RG mix as a rookie and then move to OT in the future.

Not everyone likes Rowe as much as me (and I think the Eagles). He played Safety for Utah for 3 years before moving to CB this season. Rowe started slow, but adjusted to his new position over time and I thought he looked great in their bowl game. Rowe is 6-1, 205 and ran 4.45 at the Combine. He can press receivers and run with them. One of the big selling points for me is that I see a smart, instinctive football player.

Randall played 2 years at ASU. He was a nickelback and S. He played in the box, in the slot and back deep. He has terrific cover skills. If the Eagles liked him as a CB, I’d be okay with him at 20. Randall is 5-11, 196. He is fast and athletic. My issue is that he’s erratic as a tackler. Sometimes he looks great, but other times he looks awful. Safeties are primary run defenders. That makes me nervous. CBs don’t have the same schematic expectations when it comes to run defense. The Eagles covet Safeties that have good man cover skills so their interest in him does make sense. I just don’t happen to like it.

Dorsett is one of my favorite players. Only recently did I start to think he could go in the 1st round. There have been some draft insider types linking him to the Eagles at pick 20. The team did bring him to Philly for a visit and he would be an excellent fit so this all makes sense. Dorsett averaged 24.2 yards per reception in 2014 and had 10 TDs. He has elite speed, which the receiving corps lacks right now.

I’ll mention the player that I would prefer at pick 20 and that is OL T.J. Clemmings from Pitt. I think he is the best run blocker in the whole draft. There are times when he is physically dominant. Jake Fisher can block people. Clemmings can move people. There is a difference. He is raw and needs work, but has big time upside. The Eagles have shown interest so this is a possibility.

TRADE BACK SCENARIOS

There is a lot of logic to the Eagles moving back from pick 20. They could drop to pick 30 or even 35 and still have a shot at some of the players listed above as targets. This is a wild year for the draft. After the first 10 or 15 players, things are wide open. Dorsett could go at 20 or 50. Same for Rowe. Clemmings could drop into the early 2nd round. Randall could go in the 30 to 40 range.

I would love to see the Eagles move back and add a 3rd round pick. That actually might be the ideal non-Mariota scenario.

Here are 10 other players the Eagles could target if they move back to pick 30 or 35.

OL Donovan Smith – Penn State – Some see the LT as being in play at 20. Based on 2013 & Sr Bowl – maybe.
CB Marcus Peters – Washington – Very talented press corner, but has some character issues.
DL/LB Preston Smith – Miss State – Long, tall, versatile defender. Played LB, DE and even NT in some sets.
WR Nelson Agholor – USC – Reminds some of Jeremy Maclin. The Eagles could use a polished receiver like Agholor.
OL Cameron Erving – Florida State – Played LT and C in college. Could play any spot in the NFL. Chip loves versatile athletes.
DL/LB Owamagbe Odighizuwa – UCLA – Long, athletic pass rusher. Looked great at Senior Bowl.
OL Cedric Ogbuehi – Texas A&M – Athletic, versatile OL coming off torn ACL. Need I say more?
QB Bryce Petty – Baylor – If the Eagles miss out on Mariota, Chip may covet Petty as a QB prospect.
LB/DB Shaq Thompson – Washington – I don’t know if he’s an ILB or S, but I do know he’s athletic and makes plays.

NEEDS / GOALS / STRATEGY

Finding a franchise QB is a constant goal for those teams that lack one. Sam Bradford might turn out to be a franchise QB, but for now he’s more of a question mark than anything else. That, along with age, health, price and fit, is what makes Chip Kelly so aggressive in trying to land Marcus Mariota.

Beyond that, there are a pair of key goals. The first is adding more talent to the defense, especially the secondary. The Eagles need to add at least one S and one CB in this draft. I wouldn’t object at all if they added 3 DBs. Don’t put all your eggs in one basket.

The other key is adding youth to the OL. Jason Peters, Evan Mathis, Allen Barbre and Andrew Gardner are all older players. Jason Kelce and Lane Johnson give you a good foundation, but there needs to be young talent added to the mix. The Eagles don’t have to spend high picks necessarily, but they do need at least one quality young player. Let’s say that means someone in the first 4 rounds.

If you break things down to the most simplistic level, the goal is to add good players.

EAGLES VALUE BOARD

This is my educated guess at the 150 or so players the Eagles have on their board and where they have them rated. Some players will be left off due to lack of measurables (OLB Vic Beasley is small for instance), scheme fit (S Landon Collins lacks cover skills), and/or character (La’el Collins is tied to a murder investigation right now, although he isn’t thought of as a suspect).

1st Round

QB: Marcus Mariota, Jameis Winston

RB: Todd Gurley, Melvin Gordon

TE:

WR: Amari Cooper, Kevin White, DeVante Parker, Breshad Perriman, Phillip Dorsett, Nelson Agholor

OL: Brandon Scherff, Andrus Peat, DJ Humphries, Jake Fisher, TJ Clemmings, Cedric Ogbuehi, Donovan Smith

DL: Leonard Williams, Arik Armstead, Danny Shelton, Eddie Goldman

OLB: Dante Fowler, Bud Dupree, Shane Ray

ILB:

S: Damarious Randall

CB: Trae Waynes, Byron Jones, Kevin Johnson, Eric Rowe

I will post more rounds later. This is all I have for the 1st round.

MY IDEAL MOCK DRAFT

1 – OL T.J. Clemmings – Pitt
2 – DB Quinten Rollins – Miami (OH)
3 – WR Chris Conley – Georgia
4 – CB Darryl Roberts – Marshall
5 – OG Mark Glowinski – West Virginia
5 – ILB Mike Hull – Penn State
6 – CB Randall Evans – Kansas State
7 – LB Obum Gwacham – Oregon State

This isn’t my prediction of what the Eagles will do, but rather what I would like to see them do. The Eagles have spent time with all of these players so none of them are random guesses on my part. That said, while the Eagles have checked these players out closely, that doeesn’t mean they thought highly of them all. On that part, I am guessing, and in some cases, hoping.

Clemmings is the best run blocker in the draft. Chip Kelly acquired tough, downhill runners in the offseason because he wants the run game to be more physical this year. What better way to help the new runners than to give them a presence like Clemmings up front. He played right tackle at Pitt, but could easily slide inside to guard and challenge for a starting role right away. Eventually, Clemmings could play right tackle, maybe even left tackle. He is a player that would help the Eagles this year and into the future.

Rollins is my favorite player in the whole draft. He played cornerback for a year after spending four years as the point guard for Miami of Ohio’s basketball team. He is a natural, versatile athlete. While Rollins played corner this year, I think he could make a terrific safety. He is instinctive, has good hands and will hit and tackle.

The Eagles could give Rollins a shot at safety first of all. There is a need for competition at that spot. If things don’t work for Rollins there, he could slide back outside to corner. Rollins has the kind of cover skills the Eagles like in a safety, but he’s also big and athletic enough to play corner in their system.

Losing Jeremy Maclin in free agency left a hole at wide receiver. The Eagles added Miles Austin to give the team a veteran presence on the roster, but there is still a need for a talented young player to be added to the mix. This is a deep class and that’s the only reason someone as talented as Conley would be available in the third round.

Conley has good size at 6-2, 213. He ran 4.35 at the Combine, which shows great speed. He had a 45-inch vertical jump, which shows lower body explosion. You won’t see many higher vertical jumps than that. Put on the tape and you see this athletic ability in game situations. The Eagles could use his speed to help stretch the defense. Conley could develop into a starting receiver in time.

The Eagles have to upgrade their secondary. Rollins would start that process, but he’s not alone. Roberts lacks ideal size at 5-11, 187, but he has the right combination of size, speed, athleticism and cover skills to be a starting corner in the NFL. Roberts showed great athletic ability at his Pro Day and his game tape confirms that. He was also high productive. Roberts would be a good scheme fit for the way Bill Davis likes to use his cornerbacks.

Glowinski is my favorite guard in the draft. The Pennsylvania native started the past two seasons at right guard for West Virginia and was a key blocker for their spread offense. Glowinski has good size at 6-4, 307 and he is the kind of athlete the Eagles like on the offensive line. He pulls well and is very good blocking at the second level, which is a big part of the Eagles offense. I think Glowinski would be a terrific fit for the Eagles. He is also a lot of fun to watch. Glowinski has a nasty streak and does a great job of finishing his blocks. Jon Runyan would very much enjoy watching him play.

I have been an Eagles fan for almost 30 years. I have dreamed of the day when I’d get to see a Penn State linebacker drafted by the Eagles. I hoped Sean Lee might be that guy a few years back, but the Football Gods weren’t kind and he ended up a Cowboy. Hull was a good player for the Nittany Lions, but he isn’t a great pro prospect. I think he would be a good late round target because I love his instincts and his tackling ability. He isn’t the biggest guy or the best athlete, but Hull led the Big Ten in tackles as a senior. He can play. Hull would be a good special teams player and backup for the Eagles.

Evans would be another piece to add to the mix in the secondary. He is 6-0, 190 and ran 4.44 at his Pro Day. Evans started 31 games at Kansas State, playing corner, safety and nickel back. That size, speed and versatility  makes him a player the Eagles could move around until they find the right spot for him. I also think it is important for the Eagles to bring in multiple defensive backs to help build up the secondary. You don’t want to look at one player as the guy to solve all the problems.

Gwacham is a tall, athletic player with the potential to develop into a good 3-4 linebacker. The Eagles have good starting outside linebackers, but there is a need for depth. Gwacham is 6-5, 246 and has long arms. He posted good numbers in his Combine workout. The former wide receiver needs coaching so he can develop, but has the potential to at least become a good role player.

All-Tommy Team (my favorite non-1st rounders)

WR Chris Conley – Georgia
WR Antwan Goodley – Baylor
WR Vince Mayle – Washington State
QB Bryce Petty – Baylor
RB Ameer Abdullah – Nebraska
TE Nick Boyle – Delaware
OT Laurence Gibson – Virginia Tech
OG Mark Glowinski – West Va
OC Hroniss Grasu – Oregon
OG Ali Marpet – Hobart
OT Sean Hickey – Syracuse

DE Henry Anderson – Stanford
DT Christian Covington – Rice
DT Xavier Cooper – Washington State
DE Trey Flowers – Arkansas
LB Tony Washington – Oregon
ILB Denzel Perryman – Miami
LB Mike Hull – Penn State
S Quinten Rollins – Miami OH
S Clayton Geathers – UCF
CB Darryl Roberts – Marshall
CB Quandre Diggs – Texas

Out of this list I want the Eagles to get 3 players

WR Phillip Dorsett – Miami
WR Nelson Agholor – USC
WR Chris Conley – Georgia
OL TJ Clemmings – Pitt
OL Mark Glowinski – West Va
OL Jake Fisher – Oregon
OL Ali Marpet

LB Preston Smith – Miss State
ILB Stephone Anthony – Clemson
ILB Mike Hull – Penn State
ILB Jake Ryan – Michigan
DB Quinten Rollins – Miami OH
S Ibraheim Campbell – NW
CB Eric Rowe – Utah
CB Darryl Roberts – Marshall

Please Avoid These Players

LB Danielle Hunter – LSU … great athlete, but not productive
WR Dorial Green-Beckham – Oklahoma … great potential, but character issues
S Gerrod Holliman – Louisville … scared of contact
ILB Benardrick McKinney – Miss State … at times looks great, but is highly inconsistent

SUMMARY

I would love to see the Eagles get Mariota, but I don’t think he makes or breaks this draft. The Eagles can add a franchise QB or they can improve the overall talent level of the team.
