So as I start my process of course we look at who we have. We need to decide who can make the impact we need to work this out and get our Eagles where they should be.
I have seen many interesting Mock's going on here the last week or 2 and I finally decided I was going to make my own. This is opinion based on what I would do if I had my choice to run this team for this upcoming draft and free agency period.
Just a small section on FA signings & players I would let walk/bring back.
Bring back players -
Desean Jackson - (this is as long as we work out a reasonable contract) I am not breaking the bank for him
Derek Landri - He found his spot on this team & will improve
King Dunlap - Always great to have a solid back up
Owen Schmit - Not flashy & very quite but has earned his spot on this team
Let'em walk -
Now to my draft - First trade - Eagles trade back from 15th to 22nd with Cleveland in exchange get 4th in 2012 & 3rd in 2013 - Asante Samuels to MIN for 3rd - #67
1st (22) - Dont'a Hightower - Alabama - ILB
2nd (46) - Fletcher Cox - Mississippi State - DT
2nd (51-AZ) - Zebrie Sanders - Florida St. - OT
3rd (67 -MIN) - Coryell Judie - Texas A&M - CB
3rd (77) - Dwight Jones - North Carolina - WR
4th(99 -TB) - Emmanuel Acho - Texas - OLB
4th(100-CLE) - Russell Wilson - Wisconsin - QB
4th (114)- Joe Adams - Arkansas - WR
5th (145)- Mike Brewster - Ohio State - C
6th (176)- Matt Conrath - Virginia - DE
6th (183-DEN)- Brian Linthicum - Michigan St - TE
6th (189-NE)- Jaye Howard - Florida - DT
No 7th rd picks & UDFA are way to many to look at.
This is again what I would do and hope strongly that the Eagles take this serious and puch the defensive picks early and often. I know they will jump back and take some offensive guys but get us a couple d starters to hit it off.
So lets have it, am I stretching on trades? Never happen with some of these picks? Lets discuss.
