Eagles Mock Draft
Trade: Eagles trade Chris Gocong to the Browns for a 4th round pick
Trade: Eagles trade Michael Vick to the Bills for a 4th round pick

Trade: The Eagles trade pick #24 and pick #160 to the Browns for pick #38, pick #72 and pick #157

2 (Cle)- Kareem Jackson CB Alabama- The Eagles need some added depth on the outside and Jackson helps provide that. He isn’t a shut down guy yet but he is really solid, he is well versed in man and zone coverage, he is physical, he breaks well on the ball and he has long arms to bat the pass away. His technique needs some refining but that’s about it, he is a very intelligent corner who quickly determines whether a play is run or pass and he was one of Saban's pattern read coverage disciples, which means he read the receivers release and attacked the route accordingly. By all accounts he is a dedicated guy who is a team player and spends more than his fair share of time in the film room.

2- Rodger Saffold OG Indiana- The Eagles need a little bit of help with depth on the offensive line especially with Jamaal Jackson likely missing at least part of the year. The Eagles are reportedly taking a good look at Saffold who in the beginning can provide quality depth at 4 spots (LT, LG, RG, RT). The Eagles need that considering that Nick Cole will move to C and that Max Jean-Giles, Stacy Andrews, Todd Herramens and Jason Peters all missed time in the 2009 season, Saffold can help make sure the line doesn’t have an Oakland type game where the starters are injured and the opposing defensive line just has a field day. He won’t blow anyone away but he will be a serviceable back-up who has long term starting potential and could one day start at LG or RT potentially for the Eagles.

3 (Sea)- Major Wright S Florida- The Eagles have some decent players at safety in Marlin Jackson and Macho Harris and they’ve got a good player in Quintin Mikell but the backhalf of the defense really lacks an intimidator and specifically they lack a SS back-up and a true FS. Enter Major Wright a guy with the ability to play either safety spot. Major Wright was allowed to play centerfield a lot at Florida so he can play free safety, he dropped down to nickel and played the third receiver from time to time which tells me that he is completely capable of covering a tight end or a RB. But what Major Wright really brings to the table is bone crushing hitting ability, he throws his body around and by all accounts at Florida he was the toughest pound for pound player on the defense.

3 (Cle)- Jason Worilds DE Virginia Tech- The Eagles have a stable of defensive ends including pro-bowler Trent Cole, solid players like Darryl Tapp, Jaqua Parker and a guy with potential in Victor Abiamiri but what they lack is someone who can bring the heat on third down. Jason Worilds can be that guy, he isn’t great in run support but he is a very good pass rusher, his first step is incredible and he has all world speed for the defensive end spot clocking a 1.57 10 yard split which was better than alot receivers, running backs and defensive backs had. His motor is nonstop and he won’t give up on a play just because he gets blocked. He has the ability to play the Joker spot and really he is brought in to play the spot Chris Clemons played only hopefully he can be more effective than Clemons was.

Eagles Trade their 3rd and 4th to move up to the middle of the third
3- Donald Butler LB Washington- The Eagles need depth at LB, at SLB Gocong was traded to the Browns and at MLB Stewart Bradley is coming off an ACL tear, if only there was someone in the draft who played both spots… Oh wait, there is Donald Butler who has played both spots in his career at Washington. He is a reliable tackler, has sideline to sideline range, has nice burst on blitzes because of his athletic ability, he has the size to be a thumper in the run game and he has the athleticism to play in coverage, in fact he was so effective in coverage that he often forced opposing quarterbacks to look in another direction to find an open target. He has versatility, special teams ability and he has starting potential, he will fit in nicely on a new look Eagles defense that no longer strictly looks for thumpers at the SLB spot, instead they look for well rounded players like Moses Fokou in last years draft and Donald Butler since McDermott likes to play his linebackers in coverage more. Also, Butler has come up huge in games against big schools, notching 12 tackles, two tackles for loss, a forced fumble and an interception against USC. He also posted six tackles, a TFL and a sack against Cal and 3 tackles, including a TFL and an interception in the overtime loss to Notre Dame.

Trade: Eagles Trade Cleveland’s 4th rounder for a 2011 third rounder

4 (Buf)- Alterraun Verner CB UCLA- This guy just screams Asante Samuel to me, an average athlete who excels because of his football intelligence, playing well in zone coverages, playing effectively in man to man, breaking on the ball extremely well and getting his hands on a large amount of passes notching 43 passes defended and 13 interceptions in his career at UCLA that included him playing in 51 games. This guy is a big time sleeper in the NFL draft.

5- John Skelton QB Fordham- The Eagles are reportedly looking at him as well, he is a guy with a lot of potential and is a guy who Andy Reid is hoping will develop for a year under McNabb and Kolb and will eventually become a good backup to Kevin Kolb. He could use a little bit of polishing in terms of putting more touch on passes and doing small things like faking the hand off better on play action plays. But what he does possess is a huge arm that can easily get the football 40-50 yards downfield, patience in the pocket, the understanding of taking snaps from center and the knowledge of where his second and third progressions will be. The Eagles grab a guy late who is fairly polished and has immense upside, Andy Reid is ready to work his QB magic after all he coached Brett Favre, he found Matt Hasselback, drafted Donovan McNabb and drafted Kevin Kolb and nearly every QB he has coached has at least developed into a solid backup like the Detmer brothers and AJ Feely.

6- Armanti Edwards Offense Appalachian State- Mike Vick is gone, who is going to run the wildcat package? Edwards will. Edwards will be used as a slot receiver, punt returner, kick returner and wildcat QB, hopefully he can handle it. He is the Eagles new gadget play guy and he will have a lot to work with on offense. A position change is needed because his accuracy is problematic and his mechanics aren’t good, but who would it hurt to have him let it fly deep a couple times a year to DeSean and Jeremy? The opposing defense. Edwards is a project since he will be moving spots but he has the athletic ability.

7- Mike McLaughlin LB Boston College- He is a thumper at the MLB spot, he is short and squatty at 6’ tall and 242 pounds and he is a very good in the box run defender, he has the ability to attack the gaps in the run game and stand up guards just like the Eagles use their MLB, he plays downhill in attack mode. He is very good at reading and reacting to the action, finding an angle and getting to the ball carrier and taking him down, that is what he does best. No one will ever mistake him for a sideline to sideline player nor will he ever really excel and eat up a part of the field in coverage, he is good against the run and is good enough in zone coverage but should never be in man to man coverage. His calling card is his downhill style of play.

7- Brent Bowden P Virginia Tech- Rocca sucks, Bowden does not so Bowden is drafted. Bowden placed 72 punts inside the twenties in the past 3 seasons compared to only 28 touchbacks. He has shown the ability to good hang time on punts and he has shown the ability to directionally punt. Hopefully Bowden can supplant Rocca because Rocca is probably the worst punter in the NFL.

Roster:
QB: McNabb/ Kolb
RB: McCoy/ Bell/ Buckley
FB: Weaver
X: Maclin/ Baskett
Z: Jackson/ Norwood
Y: Avant/ Edwards

TE: Celek/ Ingram/ Rucker
LT: Peters
LG: Herramens/Saffold
C: Jackson/ Cole/ McGlynn
RG: {Nick Cole} Jean-Giles/ Andrews
RT: Justice/ Tupou

*I actually want to make a comment here, the Eagles depth chart for the line is always really fluid because they like guys with a lot of versatility so in reality the back up LT is Herramens. Saffold could play LT, LG, RG or RT, Nick Cole has played LG, C and RG, Mike McGlynn is another C, RG or LG player, Max Jean-Giles has played both LG and RG, Stacy Andrews lined up at both LG and RG last year, Tupou is versatile guy, he played LT at Oregon but fits on the right side at right tackle but the Eagles are moving him inside as well so he is a guy who will eventually be able to play LG, RG or RT and the Eagles did a nice job and stashed him away on IR for the year last year to keep him from being snatched up. The only guys who don't move around on the line are Jamaal Jackson, Jason Peters and Winston Justice.

LE: Tapp/ Parker/ Abiamiri
UT: Patterson
NT: Bunkley/ Dixon
RE: Cole/ Worilds

SLB: Butler/ Fokou
MLB: Bradley/ [Joe Mays or Mike McLaughlin]
WLB: Jordan/ Gaither
*In reality, Gaither is the back-up and after him would be Butler at MLB

LCB: Samuel/ Verner
NB: Jackson
SS: Mikell/ Wright
FS: Jackson/ Harris/ Demps
RCB: Brown/ Hobbs
*Hobbs would obviously start over Verner if Samuel went down and the Eagles have Jackson Harris and Demps who all slide down to NB at times.

K: Akers
P: Bowden
LS: Dorenbos

And Skelton gets put on "IR" ( ;) ) after the preseason

In the National Football League, the kicker and punter are the most underappreciated and forgotten players on a 53-man roster. But when a game is close and a field goal or good field position is needed, they’re the most valuable. So, it’s important for teams to do their due diligence and always investigate ways to improve their special teams units.

Scout.com has learned that three teams, the Kansas City Chiefs, Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots, have scheduled workouts with one of the top punters in the 2010 NFL Draft, Michigan’s Zoltan Mesko. Mesko will work out for the Chiefs on March 26th, the Eagles on March 30th and the Patriots on April 14th or 15th; all workouts will be conducted at the University of Michigan.

After Michigan’s official Pro Day on March 12th concluded, Scout.com also learned that Mesko worked out for the Indianapolis Colts and New York Jets.

A four-year starter at Michigan, the 6-foot-5, 240-pound Mesko, who is Romanian-born, averaged a career-high 44.5 yards per attempt this past season. Mesko ranks second in school history with a 42.5-yard average, and he got stronger and improved his distance and hangtime every year. This offseason, Mesko participated in the Senior Bowl and Scouting Combine, and while he’s considered to be a top specialist in this year’s class, he’s still developing and has to correct his directional punting.

That is probably the most boring mock for the Eagles I've seen this offseason, Thumper.

No offense, but I'd be disappointed if that's how the Eagles drafted this year, even if it is a solid "depth" draft. I want at least ONE draft pick that will intrigue and excite me.

I would be thrilled with that draft, finding immediate starters at P, SLB and CB while at the same time shoring up the offensive line, finding a nice situational pass rusher and finding a gadget player on offense while also grabbing 2 potential future starters in Verner and Wright.

I don't know what you mean by flashy or intruiging though.

Or RT, Davis is a beast, if we didn't have Peters, I'd think about trading up a bit for him to even play LT. He is a great prospect simply on the field, and Castillo could help take care of his off field issues.

On your mock...I like Jackson, not big on Saffold, his overall strength will hurt him both on the run and in the pass. Major Wright is physical, but is a tweener, I see him more fitted for the Tampa D. Worilds is coming off shoulder injury, but I can seehim playing in our system. Butler, is a sound LB, and a solid tackler. He is versitle and diagnosis plays extremly well. Verner, is one I like as well. A ball hawk like Samuel, but wont get beat deep. I dont think the Eagles draft two qb's, and that being Skelton. Edwards, is the guy I see them taking, He is fast, and a playmaker. I would love to see the Eagles go for Bowden, and release Sav. Great Mock, I really do mean it.

Thumper: I want a potential "impact" player I can get excited about.

Any one of the following: Jerry Hughes, Brandon Graham, Earl Thomas, Sean Weatherspoon, Mike Iupati, Kyle Wilson... or even something crazy like a big trade-up for Eric Berry.

I know you're going to tell me that none of them are going to be available at #24, but I think that's wrong.

What makes Kyle Wilson more impactful than Kareem Jackson? Or what makes Sean Weatherspoon more impactful than Donald Butler?

EDIT: Donald Butler last season had 2 interceptions, 3 forced fumbles and 74.5 tackles while Weatherspoon had 1 interception and 1 forced fumble.

I am going to change my Saffold pick to something better, I'm thinking the OG from Illinois who's name is slipping my mind right now, he plays mean and he is really well rounded, he can create holes in the run game, can handle pass protection and he is good when being pulled and trapped.

Also with the addition of Tapp I don't think an everydown DE is a need anymore, now I think they can focus on situational pass rushers instead.

Somebody will slip thru the cracks and the Eagles will jump on him ala Jeremy Mc. If that does not happen, then I see our selfs trading down. Honestly, I dont see why they would trade down, as opposed of trading up. I know they just traded for tapp, but if a Brandon Graham is available in the teens I see AR, pulling the trigger.

Hughes could be there, but he is a bad fit, Graham seems like he'll be gone, same with Thomas, Witherspoon, Iupati, and Wilson could be gone as well. He and Hughes have the best shot at being there, and I'd much rather Wilson that Hughes. This is a case where, for the most part, I agree with Thumper

I don't think so, Tapp is a good DE and will fit in well at LE in our defense. I think if we would get a DE, it will be later on, maybe the third round or so, since we do still need DEs.

I agree with you on Tapp, he is a good DE, and will contribute. If for somehow Graham should slip, I dont see why they wont trade up. That being said, I much prefer Wilson, and wish he would slide. Do I see that happening, no. The only thing im sure of, is that he wont draft LB's in the first round.

Has anyone heard of Ali Villanueva? Have a buddy who is in the Army and obviously supports the Army Football program. He told me about this kid, The guy is 6-9, 277. He started playing DE, then switched to OT and played there for 3 years. Last season he moved to WR, He is moving to TE, if he makes in the pros. I dont see him being drafted, but I dont remember seeing a TE/WR that tall.

Yeah thats cause he is not a OT, more of Te or WR. But all the only thing he has going for him is his height. Played against Temple didn't do much. And he has to go serve for 2 year before he can play, i think not sure.

Witht the DE situation now, I don't see the Eagles trading up for a DE. If Graham or Morgan fall all the way to 22ish, they may give up a 6th rounder like last year to ensure they get who they want, but I don't see them giving up anything more than that to trade up for a DE, with who they have already. If they trade up, it will be for CB, S, or OL. That's how I see it anyway.

I was watching this video recently:

http://espn.go.com/blog/nfceast/post...e-clock-eagles

And I got really depressed. They keep talking about how the Eagles need improvement "up the middle" at all positions: S, LB, and DT. Add to that the needs at OL and even potentially DE and CB, and we're looking at a team that will, in no way, come close to filling its holes come 2010. As far as I can tell, this team will not be a contender next year, and will most likely look to 2010 and potentially even 2011 as rebuilding years.

Dammit. There would be nothing sweeter than seeing the Eagles win a Super Bowl in Cowboys Stadium, right? Too bad it probably won't happen in 2010.

Like everyone's been saying, Tapp solves the every down DE problem, but just imagine if JPP were to fall. JPP could be an otherworldly pass rusher in the NFL, the major concerns are about his ability to hold up against the run. If we could bring him along at first just as a situational pass rusher, and eventually as an every down DE he could be incredible.

I'm just not expecting all that much from Tapp. I think he will be solid, but nothing special. Our front 4 are often left to get after the qb by themselves, whereas in Seattle they had very capable blitzing LB's behind Tapp to help free him up to make plays. While I think he will be adequate, I think it's important to not kid ourselves that he is the answer at DE.

Edit: and as for Thumper's mock, a solid job, not flashy, but solid. And if we only got a 4th for Vick that would be robbery. Come on, he's more valuable than Gocong...

You're going to change your opinion of a team because ESPN said it?
  • We all know that the Eagles don't need DT help, they've got Bunk, Patterson and Dixon coupled with Tapp and Abiamiri when they move inside on third down, help inside isn't need in the least.
  • At LB the Eagles have Stewart Bradley coming back, Omar Gaither coming back, Akeem Jordan will be healthy and Moses Fokou has shown the athletic ability to at least be a good reserve and the coaches really like him. The Eagles need some depth but the starters are pretty much set unless the Eagles grab someone early which isn't likely considering Andy Reid doesn't value linebackers highly.
  • And at safety the Eagles could use a SS backup but that isn't a huge problem and the group is solid with Quintin Mikell, Marlin Jackson, a better Macho Harris and hopefully Quintin Demps can take some steps to fulfilling his potential.
  • And at CB the group is very good, the Eagles could definitely use a first round talent to eventually supplant Brown and help make it so that Brown won't wear down by the end of the year like he did last year. But Asante Samuel is as good as it gets on the opposite side, Joselio Hanson is a good nickel, Ellis Hobbs is a decent depth player and the Eagles have Marlin Jackson, Macho Harris and Quintin Demps all three of whom will slide down and play nickel and dime on occasion.

The talent is in place on defense, all thats needed are some role players and some much needed depth. And we all know the offense is set and will most likely set the scoring record again next season with DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin, Brent Celek, LeSean McCoy, Leonard Weaver and Jason Avant returning, Ingram returning and new additions in Mike Bell and a gluttony of depth receivers.

Though I agree there are no glaring holes in our interior, especially with our recent additions, I would not be surprised to see a DT drafted, especially if the team would only pick up one more DE, the last few years they have carried 10 DL, most of that time there were 6 DEs, this year may only be 5, and more competition at DT won't hurt at all. DE could use a boost in terms of pass rushing, and I would like a LB addressed early (for Reids standards, ie 3rd or 4th round) And though I am iffy on Jackson, we have 3 potential players at FS, neither of whom are a bad option, and the only need, as you said, that is of any urgency, is a backup SS.

Ideally, in this draft, with 8 picks, I'd like to see OL, DE, LB, CB. and SS addressed for sure, with other potentially higher needs at DT, another DE, LB depth, CB depth, and P. Depending on trades (Vick, whoever) or someone falling, I can see QB and FS as other positions that could be addressed, but would be fine if things at those positions stayed the same as they are now. Many positions in that second group are fine the way they are now as well, but could use upgrades.

Many people are beginning to realize ESPN's coverage of sports news is a joke. They are a great source of finding out what is new, but when I want to actually get some info, ESPN is the last place I'll go.

IDK about anyone else, but I think this would be much better if it were the 5 or 6 most likely at each position of need, factoring in fit and availablility.

For me, the 6 most likely DE, regardless of round, are...
1. Griffen (most likely of the round one DEs available, and the best fit of the ones avaialble.
2. Graham. A better fit than Griffen, but less likely to be available.
3. Carrington. More likely available in round 2, and a decent fit.
4. Worilds. A good fit as a pass rusher, available with one of our third rounders.
5. Morgan. Just as good a fit as Graham, but less likely than even Graham to be available.
6. Sapp. Likely available for our third rounders, and a decent fit as well.
