    Griffin
    Abiamiri

    Spencer/Johnson
    Weddle

    Spencer/Johnson
    Wendling
    I'm not a big Abiamiri fan, but Spencer or Johnson I would be fine with in the second. I don't really like Weddle or Wendling, but they are ok I guess. At least they fill a need.

      We may not see DE as a big need, but the Eagles have their philosophy and stick to it. I'm trying to think what they would do.

      Besides, Kearse is an ankle-grabber, and Hugh Douglas said this morning that he looks to be about 230 lbs. Cole wears down, Howard can not be the man, and Thomas is ok. Gocong may be another pass rusher, and McDougle is gone. I actually think Kearse or Howard or both are gone after this season.

      So depth is not that good. My main point is that I think the first two rounds will be some sort of combination of DE and safety, since those are the deepest and most quality positions in the draft. CB and TE are secondary positions by need.

        I meant it in round order. For example:

        1. Moss
        2. Weddle

        And why are you low on Abiamiri?

          I'm not big on this mock, but it isn't like it is that bad either. I don't like Desmond Bishop, mostly because he is only a 2 down LB. I would be much happier with Anthony Waters as the MLB in the third round. Here is mine as I see it right now, ideally.
          1. Michael Griffin, S. This is obviously our biggest remaining need, so I think this is the most logical pick that would help our defense the most.
          2. Ben Patrick, TE, or Brian Leonard, RB. (I know we just re-signed Buck, but our FO has shown a lot of interest in him, but it may be smokescreens. Even though we have L.J., we may go TE if our FO is unsure about the ability to re-sign him. If the FO feels safe at both of these positions, we may go DE in the second round with a guy like Crowder) For the purpose of this draft I will say Ben Patrick.
          3. Anthony Waters, MLB. We may have improved our OLBs with the acquisition of Takeo Spikes, but we need a future MIKE to replace Trotter is the organization fells as though they want to kepp Gaither at WILL, which I think is the best idea. If they are comfortable moving Gaither to MIKE, Waters has the versatility to play WILL, so he would be a great pick for either position.
          5. Nate Ilaoa. We do need a guy to stuff it up the middle, and Ilaoa is the best option at this point. He runs hard and fast for a guy who is 240+. He is a little short, but our team likes shorter RBs. Ilaoa can catch very easily as well, so he is a great fit in our system. This would probably mean the end for Moats though, so that would be a disapointment.
          6. Travarous Bain, CB. I know the sexy pick right now is getting Courtney Brown in the sixth or seventh or even undrafted, but this is a very logical pick considering what our defense needs out of its CB. We will bring in more competition for the Nickel postion, and it is one of our few needs. Bain has good size, though not as tall and large as Brown, but this is a good pick as well. Level of competition was a concern, but it always is for guys coming out of DII, but we all know there have been great names to come out of those ranks, and AR really likes the DII guys as well.
          7. Jacob Bender, OT. This was a tough decision. There is a rumor that we will be trading our newly acquired QB, but I don't buy it. We need a big run-stuffing DT, but out DT spots are full, as well as the rest of our defensive positions. Our O-line is stacked, but I really think AR will have to draft at least one O-linemen this draft. The rest of our spots are filled at this point, so we add another player to improve our depth at O-line.

            I like Griffin in first then a CB in second, But rather then Bennet what about Tanard Jackson of Syracuse, He is so physical and is great in man to man. Iv watched him alot and he loves to be physical,he will really take advantage of the 5 yard rule in The NFL.

              I don't think we need to get a CB on the first day. Our system is able to make a lot out of little when it comes to CBs. Rod Hood went undrafted, and now he has developed into a starter in this league. I would be perfectly comfortable getting a CB in rounds six or seven, or even undrafted. Though I do think it would be better to get one in the draft.

                I really like Jackson as well, he would be a perfect nickelback, but he will be gone in the second round which is a little too early to take someone to fill that position IMO. A lot of us really like Bennett because he's a very sound player and doesn't have any really glaring weaknesses. He's a probably a third rounder, and has tons of upside. That and we had success with another gamecock, Sheldon Brown. Either way, I wouldn't be unhappy with either, but second round might be a bit early for us to take a nickelback.

                  A wise post, and don't forget Dunta Robinson, another great Gamecock. Jackson is a beastly cover 2 corner IMO. He plays really physical and could even be a FS.

                    Ok, I didn't get how you were ranking them. Abiamari would be awesome to get in the second, but I see him going mid 2nd. I thought you were saying he would be our pick in the first which would be a sizeable reach.

                      True, Dunta is awesome. I was speaking from the Eagles FO view, but they have put out quite a few successful DB's.

                        Yes, we have done a lot with the CBs we have had over the past few years.

                          I feel this article adequately represents the Eagles draft. It is realistic, and falls in line with the Eagles philosophy.

                          I have become President of the Michael Griffith fan club. He's the real deal, and my guy at #26.

                          I think Abiamiri is the 2nd round pick. Leonard would be nice, but they wouldn't use him enough.

                          Basically, because the Eagles don't have much cap space and a bunch of starters already signed (although this may be a case of quantity over quality), I think that this is the year that they should give up draft picks to move up and get the players they want. They don't have much room on the roster anyway, so they might as well go for pedigree picks. They can give up a pick or so from the 2008 draft too.

                              No offense dude but how are you the president of his fan club when don't even know his last name? Anyway I am very high on Michael Griffin as well.

                                Griffin is a talented player. There is a lot of talent in this draft that can really help the Eagles. I really don't have an actual preference as to who they take at this point. I still have full trust in the Front Office.
