(Not another mock draft thread no one cares. I know, I know)
It's ridiculously early to be talking about this but that's reality at this point. I thought maybe this could be a forum for people to make their own predictions, because I know everyone loves to do that. I figured maybe we could have it all here to avoid crowding up the fanpost section with all sorts of mocks.
I don't know if this idea will stick but if you think so, rec this so it can stay up for a little while, once the offseason is going we can reference this to see if anyone was right.
Here's what I would LOVE from this offseason, without much detail (I'm sure later on I'll delve into some explanations)
Eagles free agents:
Possible free agent targets:
Alex Smith: The 49ers have an opt out clause in his contract, and with the emergence of Colin Kaepernick I find it hard to believe they will keep Smith around. I would love to see Alex Smith behind a healthy offensive line running this offense
Dwayne Bowe: Big 6'2'' receiver who runs great routes
Jairus Byrd: Safety is a position that needs a ton of improvement, this would be a good start:
Draft I don't know a ton about college football nor do I know all the prospects so I am not going to do a 7 round mock, but rather a 3 round mock. *I am sure that the eagles are going to try and shop some of their players, and most likely they will get some more draft picks*
1st round: Luke Joeckel (Tackle)
2nd round: Tyler Eifert (Tight End) 6'6'' TE from Notre Dame, in a league where 2 tight ends are becoming more popular, Eifert could become a great red zone threat
3rd round: Matt Elam (Safety)
Projected lineup (not all 53)
QB: Alex Smith, Nick Foles
FB: Stanley Havili
TE: Brent Celek, Tyler Eifert
LT: Jason Peters
LG: Evan Mathis
C: Jason Kelce
RT: Luke Joeckel
LDE: Brandon Graham, Philip Hunt
WILL: Akeem Jordan (I expect an upgrade)
MLB: DeMeco Ryans
CB: Nnamdi, Marsh, ????????????
Obviously there is a whole lot of info and loose ends here, but I just had to get my ideas written out. Feel free to join the discussion and share your thoughts.
