Mock Draft Compilation

I've been a long-time BGN reader just getting around to making his first contribution to the board here.  I'm not a big college football fan, so I don't know as many of the college players that the Eagles can/will look at in the NFL Draft, so I'm here to ask for assistance and analysis from people who know more.

With help from WalterFootball.com, which has an ultimate link dump for mock drafts (http://www.walterfootball.com/draftdata.php), I went through and did a quick survey of who these mocks think the Eagles will draft in the first round (we'll assume for the sake of this discussion that the Birds keep both their picks).  I made no attempt to determine how good or bad the mock was; I'm relying on the "wisdom of crowds" mentality here.  My only criterion was that the mock had to have the Eagles picking in the right places (#21 and #28).  My survey included 27 total mock drafts.

Without further adieu, the list of players who appeared on more than one list, by number of appearances:

Brandon Pettigrew, TE, Oklahoma State: 16 appearances

Eben Britton, OT, Arizona: 8 appearances

Duke Robinson, G, Oklahoma: 4 appearances

William Beatty, OT, Connecticut: 3 appearances

Phil Loadholt, OT, Oklahoma: 3 appearances

William Moore, S, Missouri: 3 appearances

Knowshon Moreno, RB, Georgia: 3 appearances

Jason Smith, OT, Baylor: 3 appearances

James Laurinaitis, ILB, Ohio State: 2 appearances

I just have a few questions about this group.  Is it really that obvious that the Eagles will seek a tight end?  I've read Pettigrew is a game-changer, but do the Birds feel they need to replace Brent Celek?

Will the Eagles take two offensive linemen in the first round (I can see why they would with Thomas and Runyan hitting free agency); if so, which two should I be hoping for?

I would like to think the Eagles will re-sign Brian Dawkins.  Do they draft Moore anyway, since Dawk is getting old, or is Dawkins that likely to leave?

I've seen Moreno play a lot, and he is a really talented back, and he'd be great to have alongside Brian Westbrook.  Is it a pipe dream to think Andy Reid would actually take him in the first round?

Anyway, hope this isn't a waste of my first FanPost.  Any feedback is appreciated.
