Oh did I say "enjoy?" I meant rip apart and talk about how angry you'll be if this actually happens. Below I'll give his picks (3 rounds) with a few of my own comments.
The Eagles can go a few directions here and there are a lot of talented players still on the board. Coples had a monster 2011 season and a solid combine. He could play defensive end or rush the passer from the outside linebacker spot. A lot of draftniks have him going in the top 10. He could be a steal at 15 for Philly.
It's just hard to see the Eagles taking a defensive end. Considering the big money they've got into Cole & Babin and the fact that they're expecting Graham to make an impact... It just doesn't seem like defensive end makes much sense. But if they see him as BPA? Then who knows?
46. Philadelphia Eagles: Mitchell Schwartz, OT, California
Who doesn't want to see offensive line depth with this pick huh? Especially an alright prospect like Schwartz who projects to play RT at NFL, which is the spot the Eagles just extended Todd Herremans through 2016 at...
51. Philadelphia (from Arizona): Brock Osweiler, QB, Arizona State
I honestly don't know what I'll do if this happens. The Eagles have taken a look at several QBs this offseason, Osweiler is not one. He is an interesting prospect, but I would really not like this pick in the second round. It should also be noted that at this point, Schrager has mocked one player who would likely have any shot to help the team in the short term.
88. Philadelphia Eagles (via Houston): Joe Adams, WR, Arkansas
Joe Adams was actually a pretty great return man at Arkansas with 5 returns for TDs.
