Quick Free Agency Recap:

Rarely do my free agent aspirations for the Eagles fall so closely in line with their actions as this season. Like most, I was an advocate for re-signing Evan Mathis and hoped the Eagles would acquire a proven MLB and defensive leader...Demeco Ryans, check. I would have preferred Jason Campbell to Trent Edwards, but I also never realistically thought that Campbell would settle for the type of role and contract he signed with the Bears. Jason Peters ruptured Achilles created a giant hole at LT with little time and few if any options to fill in. Demetress Bell could be a target for OT depth from what is an exceedingly thin remaining FA tackle market and I guess I'd have to settle with Dunlap as a fallback option, but not until I explore any and all trade possibilities. LT is a premium position in the NFL and in order to acquire a serviceable LT, the Eagles would have to offer up either a bounty of draft picks (not an option) or a player of value at another premium position....Jason Babin, check. In accordance with any good sell-high philosophy, Babin is a very attractive trade candidate: productive pass rusher, reasonable contract, minimal cap hit. There are 6-7 teams that I can envision as trade partners, but with a solid back-up swing tackle in Anthony Collins and a multitude of draft picks, none fit better than the Bengals. So, ideally... Jason Babin for Anthony Collins & a 5th round pick. (Update) Scratch that, the Eagles signed Demetress Bell, meh...and yet I still might consider trading Babin. I would like the Eagles to sign a veteran Safety, but I don't think there's one available that is worth signing. I saw the 37 year old Jeff Saturday as the ideal mentor for Kelce given his experience in Mudd's system...that is until Green Bay decided to pay him like he was 27. I'm always on board with cheap 1 year flyers on veteran OL depth; that is, as long as the Eagles are not penciling in Gibson and Vallos as roster locks. Landri proved his worth as a rotational DT and I was pleasantly surprised that some team didn't over pay for him. Throw the fair extensions for Cole, Herremans, and Jackson on top of all that and the Eagles have themselves a pretty solid offseason thus far. GRADE: B

Draft Needs by Position:

I'm a big fan of the draft need categorization system employed by Drafttek and incorporated it to better explain my evaluation of the Eagles needs. Link (scroll down on the link to read the description).

QB: QBF (1), QBA (5), QBU (9)

More specifically, a franchise QB, the single biggest need for any team that doesn't have one. My drafting philosophy for QB is different than any position. I simplify my evaluation and separate QB prospects into 3 categories: 1) Franchise "QBF" 2) Almost "QBA" 3) Back-up "QBU". When a QB is classified as "QBF", I would be comfortable drafting them with the 1st overall pick given my need. "QBA" prospects have most of the traits of a "QBF", but they have a glaring question mark that cannot be ignored. In this draft, for example, Russell Wilson's height prevents me from giving him the highest designation. All "QBA" prospects receive a value grade somewhere from the 2nd to the 3rd round. "QBU" prospects receive value grades ranging from rounds 4 to 7, but they only have value for teams in need of a Back-up QB. With Kafka and Edwards on the roster, using a draft pick on a "QBU" is a waste. Michael Vick is a quality starter, but his liabilities (inability to stay healthy, below average pre-snap reads and blitz recognition, lack of height resulting in batted balls and limited vision over the middle of the field, holding onto the ball too long, etc) outweigh his ability as a playmaker and will ultimately keep him from ever leading the Eagles to a Super Bowl. Luck and RG3 are the only two viable options to fill this need in the draft and they are both unattainable. Target: probably 2013 or 2014

RB: RBF (5), RBC(9)

McCoy is an indisputable All-Pro talent, but after that the cupboard is bare. A quality back-up RB is an absolute necessity to lighten McCoy's load in order to preserve and prolong his prime. A new contract for McCoy would go a long way to getting him on board with this idea as well. That being said, with the positional depth and value in this draft, the Eagles shouldn't even look at filling this need until the mid to late rounds...unless by some act of God Doug Martin falls to the 3rd round, you get my point. Target: BPA rounds 4-7

FB: FB(9)

Competition for Stanley Havili would be nice, but it is hard to justify using a draft pick on a position that sees the field on such a low percentage of snaps. Target: RFA

WR: WRF(6), WRP(5), WRS(6)

The offensive struggles in the red zone are well documented. The Eagles have cornered the market on speed at the position, but they need a WR with size and plus ball skills. Red zone targets are proficient high pointers and hand snatchers of the ball that understand how to use their body to both shield defenders and create separation in short areas. With Jackson, Maclin, and Avant on the roster it is tough to justify using a high pick on a receiver. Luckily for the Eagles, this draft class provides several solid possession receiver options in the later rounds. Target: BPA rounds 3-7

TE: TE(6)

Every team is searching for the next Gronk or Graham and they probably aren't going to find them in this draft. However, there are a number of both intriguing athletic specimens and blocking tight ends that were underutilized in college. There should be some decent options in the later rounds and the Eagles would be wise to snag one. Target: BPA rounds 4-7

OL: OT(2), OG(4), OC(4)

Even before the Peters injury, the Eagles needed to address OT depth fairly early and ideally with a prospect that has OL positional versatility. (the Demetress Bell signing does nothing to change that) Matt Kalil is the only OT prospect in this draft worth selecting in the 1st round and he will be long gone when the Eagles make their pick. However, there are a number of decent options with value in the middle rounds. OT Target: BPA rounds 2-4.

Vandervelde, Vallos, & Gibson may be a nice sounding law firm, but I have some doubts about their ability to sure up the interior OL depth. Competition at any OL position of depth is essential and always a viable draft option. The Eagles are especially thin at OC, nothing after Kelce, and given their recent history with Jamaal Jackson's injuries, they should know how crippling it is to try and compete with a patchwork OC. That said, back-up interior OL, let alone starters, should never be drafted early. OG/OC Target: BPA rounds 4-7

DL: DT(2M4), DE(3)

Cullen Jenkins was my favorite signing last offseason and is still a very effective player, but he is aging and has been injury prone. With question marks surrounding all the other defensive tackles on the roster, DT is a position that should be targeted both early and often. DT Target: BPA all rounds

For the most part, I agree with the philosophy employed by the Giants and Eagles that you can never have enough quality pass rushers. I believe Graham is poised for a breakout season giving the Birds 3 quality ends. I want the Eagles to trade Babin, which would only amplify the need, but regardless, he is no spring chicken and Cole isn't getting any younger either. DE Target: BPA all rounds

LB: ILB(6), OLB(2M4)

If I was the jersey wearing type, I'd be rockin' a newly minted Nike edition Demeco Ryans. I wish I could say the same for any of the other LBs on the roster. The Ryans addition begins what I hope to be a revamping of a LB core that has been the object of every Eagle fan's ire for several years running. Ryans fills the need for a starting ILB, but competitive, versatile depth is always a need. Target: BPA rounds 5-7

The Eagles have a OLB depth chart chock-full of undersized serviceable back-ups with limitations and what they need are instinctive explosive playmakers. The lack of an impact player at OLB is a perpetual hole that has to be filled Competition for the back-up spots wouldn't hurt either. Target: BPA all rounds

CB: CB(4), CBS(3)

With Assante all but out the door, Nnamdi and DRC are left to man the edges, or should I say press man the edges. With Marsh and Hughes on the roster, I don't see any value in targeting CB depth early in the draft. However, competitive depth at CB is always a need. Target: BPA rounds 4-7

The proliferation of the passing game is turning Nickel CB or Slot CB essentially into a base defense starting position. Joselio Hanson is not the player he once was and I don't even expect him to make the team next season creating a major need for a Slot CB. The need dictates BPA in all rounds, but the value in this draft begins in round 3. Target: BPA rounds 3-7

S: S(2)

Mark Barron and Harrison Smith are the only Safety prospects worthy of a high draft selection, rounds 1-2, and after that the value IMO can be found on day 3. The traditional in-the-box safety is a thing of the past as teams need players at the position that cover like corners and hit like linebackers...not easy to find. With the coverage versatility required at the position, I'm partial to targeting physical zone corners with sound tackling ability and a willingness to shed blocks and play the run....also not easy to find. Projecting upside with a position switch is always tricky and hence, tough to justify selecting early. Target: BPA rounds 4-7

ST: K(9), P(9), LS(9)

Competition for Henery and Henry should always be added either with a rookie or a veteran journeyman, but I don't see any value in drafting a kicker or punter...ever. The Eagles would greatly benefit from adding a quality return specialist to improve their average starting field position. However, I wouldn't draft a return specialist before round 7 unless it fills another need. It would be nice to have a LS that actually plays a position, although Dorenbos does provide some special teams coverage value. LS is not a position I would use anything other than a 7th rounder Target: RFA

Draft Target Value Board:

After evaluating prospects over the past year, I like to narrow that list down to players that I feel fit the Eagles aforementioned needs. I have never been a big fan of reaching for a need in the draft (i.e. the Eagles 2011 Draft). Therefore, I like to create a draft board of needs based on perceived value. I'm okay with reaching when the need/value and remaining draft board calls for it...i.e. the Eagles need a OT that can play right away and based on my evaluation of the available prospects, they will probably have to use a draft pick by the 3rd round in order to get one. Conversely, after the top 2 Safety prospects the value lies in rounds 4-6; so drafting a Safety other than Barron or Smith in the top 3 rounds would be a reach and a mistake. In previous years, I used to do a full big board, but now if a prospect doesn't fit the Eagles' needs or I simply think their skill set will not translate to the NFL, I just leave them off the board.

Final Mock Draft:

I added some brief thoughts on each player and linked some reputable scouting reports and video clips.

1-15) Chandler Jones - DE - Syracuse - 6053 - 266

Reviews on Jones are mixed, but I grade him as the best 43 DE in the draft and a lot of that is strictly based on upside. Some will look at his body type and measurables and make comparisons to JPP, but I wouldn't go that far. He possesses traits that you can't teach with his rare combination of size and athleticism, arm length, motor, instincts, explosion, natural hand use and nose for the football, but he lacks ideal lateral agility and will need to improve against the run. Jones is the type of DE that the Giants would draft and that is probably the best compliment I could give him. Jones is still very raw and will take some time to develop and put it all together, but when he does, look out.

Scouting Reports: NFL, NFP, SI, PFW, CBS

Video Clips: 1 - 2 - 3

2-14) Lavonte David - OLB - Nebraska - 6005 - 233

David is a flat out playmaker. He is everything I like in a LB other than size, but then again, he is a giant compared to Brian Rolle and would start day 1 for the Eagles at WILL. If the Eagles only could draft one LB in 2012, my pick would be Lavonte David. Paired with Demeco Ryans, the LB core would undergo a face lift similar to last season's OL.

Scouting Reports: NFL, NFP, SI, PFW, CBS

Video Clips: 1 - 2 - 3 - 4

2-19) Derek Wolfe - DT/34DE -Cincinnati - 6051 - 295

With Cox and Brockers gone in the top half of the 1st round, the Eagles grab the 3rd DT on my board and land their successor to Cullen Jenkins at UT. Wolfe has elite physical traits with his length, frame, and short area quickness. As a converted OT, he has only played on the defensive side of the ball for a few years which leaves a lot of room for growth. Even though he is understandably still a little raw technique-wise, he displays plus instincts and a propensity to diagnose plays. He needs to gain some functional strength at the POA as he struggled at times with double teams, but with a year to continue to develop he should be able to remedy that issue. That said, it may be wishful thinking to have Wolfe still on the board at this point.

Scouting Reports: NFL, NFP, SI, PFW, CBS

Video Clips: 1 - 2 - 3

3-25) Brandon Mosley - OT/OG - Auburn - 6055 - 314

Former LB/DE/TE juco transfer turned OT. Started most games on the right side, but filled in due to a 2nd quarter injury at LT in 2010 against Miss St and more than held his own against McPhee and Cox. Mosley is exactly the type of raw natural athlete I would love to hand to Howard Mudd and let him work his magic. Mosley needs work on his technique as he gets overextended at times, but he is a natural bender with great feet and he plays with a mean streak...all attributes that should suit him well in Mudd's aggressive blocking scheme. His body type reminds me of Mathis or Herremans and like them, I think Mosley also has the versatility to kick inside and ultimately play 4 positions on the OL.

Scouting Reports: NFL, NFP, SI, PFW, CBS

Video Clips: 1 - 2 - 3 - 4

4-19) Mike Harris - CBS/CB - Florida St - 5102 - 188

Nicknamed "the Hammer," Mike Harris could very well be the best Slot CB prospect in the draft. He can hold his own on the outside and has some experience in press, but he excels in the slot. In addition to being potentially the best Slot CB prospect, he is also one of the best tackling defensive backs in the draft displaying excellent form he surely didn't learn from Assante.

Scouting Reports: NFL, NFP, SI, PFW, CBS

Video Clips: 1

5-18) Miles Burris - ILB/OLB - San Diego St - 6015 - 246

Burris is a tweener prospect that isn't a tweener at all, but rather an ILB or 43 OLB. Burris was rarely asked to drop into coverage and when you watch him ferociously attack downhill you can see why. However, he didn't look out of place in coverage at all displaying solid instincts and his athleticism suggests he should be able to make the transition fairly easily. Burris is one of those prospects that plays faster than his timed speed of 4.67 and that was evident against Michigan as he chased down Denard Robinson from behind. He is explosive and constantly makes plays in the backfield and will be a stand out special teams player on day one as he gains the needed experience to develop in a new scheme.

Scouting Reports: NFL, NFP, SI, PFW, CBS

Video Clips: 1 - 2 - 3

6-2) Justin Bethel - S - Presbyterian - 5115 - 200

Bethel is a playmaker. He is just the type of physical, instinctive, sound tackling college corner that I think would translate perfectly to Safety. His man coverage ability is more than adequate to blanket TE and the occasional slot WR, but his instincts in zone coverage are what impress me. When Bethel drops back he has an acute awareness for routes developing around him and does an excellent job of reading the QB and breaking on the ball. Bethel has also excelled at blitzing off the edge, something he will do more of in his new role.

Scouting Reports: NFL, NFP, SI, PFW, CBS

Video Clips: 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6

6-24) David Molk - OC - Michigan - 6007 - 298

Molk's size, or lack thereof, will prevent keep teams away until the later rounds. He may not be a giant, but he is strong as a bull and uses his size to his advantage in gaining leverage under the pad level of defensive lineman. Molk has the athleticism to get to the second level and understands angles in the run game. In my opinion, Molk is the only draftable center prospect that fits Mudd's system and what the Eagles like to do.

Scouting Reports: NFL, NFP, SI, PFW, CBS

Video Clips: 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6

6-30) Mike Ball - RBF - Nevada - 5091 - 206

Mike Ball was dismissed from the team last season, so that will have to be checked out. Aside from the fleas, I really like his ability as a RB. Some of the main things I look at for RBs are patience, burst through the hole, lateral cuts or shiftiness in traffic, hands, and blitz pick-up. Mike Ball displays an above average skill set across the board, but lacks the ideal size and long speed.

Scouting Reports: NFL, NFP, SI, PFW, CBS

Video Clips: 1 - 2

7-22 via Assante to ATL) Derrius Brooks - CBS/WRS/KR - Western Kentucky - 5094 - 192

Another elite athlete WR turned CB a la Sam Shields. Elite athlete may be an understatement...this guy can flat out fly. His initial value will be as a return specialist but he has all the tools to develop as a sub package contributor in the secondary or a slot WR or both.

(1-12) Fletcher Cox - DT/34DE - Mississippi St - Grade: A+

Cox has been my top draft target for months and I was both shocked and thrilled that he was still available. In fact, I'd given up hope of landing him because I thought the Eagles would have to give up too much to go up and get him. I applaud their patience and aggressiveness. Cox will be a difference maker...key words, "will be." I caution anyone on forming solid opinions on Cox based on his first NFL season, because he is only 20 years old and that in itself is a scary thought when you consider his already immense talent level.

(2-14) Mychal Kendricks - OLB - California - Grade: B-

Don't get me wrong, I like Kendricks. I wanted the Eagles to draft an explosive, play-making OLB and Kendricks fits that bill. He is arguable the best athlete among this LB class and that along with his sound tackling ability make him a significant upgrade at WILL. I do have some issue with his instincts, but then again, lining up next to an experienced leader in Ryans will aide in that regard. My only real issue with this pick and the reason I slightly downgraded it is that there are 2 other OLB prospects on my board that I would have taken ahead of him.

(2-19) Trade Back w/ GB for 2-27 & 4-28 - Grade: A+

The only players left on my board with a 2nd round value grade are OLB, a need just filled with the selection of Kendricks. Granted, I wanted the Eagles to come away with multiple LBs in this draft, but not in the first 2 rounds at the expense of other needs. In a position where they would have to reach to fill another need and having just traded away a 4th & 6th round pick to move up to grab Cox, the Eagles are very wise to restock the draft pick cupboard.

(2-27) Vinny Curry - DE - Marshall - Grade: D

You can never have enough pass rushers...cliche but true. This pick was hailed as a steal and a tremendous value, but I disagree. I like Curry a bit, but I put a 4th round value grade on him so I see this as a major reach. Curry has a nice array of pass rush moves that he has used to great success during his college career. Although Curry did not face elite competition week in and week out at Marshall, he stepped up his game against big time opponents. My problem with Curry is that I see him as an overachiever and that generally doesn't translate as well to the NFL, especially from a smaller school. Ultimately, I see Curry as a rotational DE similar to Darryl Tapp.

(3-25) Nick Foles - QBU - Arizona - Grade: F - Wasted Pick

The poor grade for this pick is entirely based on my philosophy for drafting QBs and the value I place on drafting QBU prospects without a need. Foles may develop into a solid QB, but I don't see him as a franchise QB. However, the turn style offensive line in front of him makes him a tough QB prospect to grade. Foles generally goes 1 progression to check down on most of his drop backs, but it is somewhat understandable given his O-line. Foles has enough arm to make all the throws and for the most part demonstrates deft touch. He lacks mobility, but he does have decent pocket awareness. I don't know enough about QB play to say for sure, but it seems to me as though his inconsistent footwork is what causes his occasional accuracy issues. Foles will be a serviceable back-up that can step in and win some games and therein lies the problem...the Eagles need a Franchise QB.

(4-28) Brandon Boykin - CBS - Georgia - Grade: B+

Although Boykin was not one of my top 3 choices, as a CBS with a 3rd-4th round grade, he provides solid value at a position of great need. Joselio Hanson should go ahead and put his house on the market now. Boykin is another physical playmaker and sure tackler, a welcome trend in this 2012 Eagles draft. He also provides some added value in the return game, which is nice. There are supposedly some medical concerns, which may be the reason he was still on the board. Slot CBs are becoming more and more important in the NFL and I'm glad the Eagles recognized their deficiency.

(5-18) Dennis Kelly - OT - Purdue - Grade: D-

Who? Have to confess that I knew very little about him, so I went back and watched a game vs Michigan and saw some things that intrigue me, but I struggle mightily to see how Kelly is a better option at this point than other prospects on the board. He can definitely make the Eagles' roster, but with the current OL depth, that is like saying he's the tallest midget.

(6-24) Marvin McNutt - WR - Iowa - Grade: D

I like his size and his ball skills, but I'm not sure he has the athleticism to separate on the next level. He has the propensity for both the big play and the occasional bout of the dropsies. As a general rule of thumb based on recent history, I tend to downgrade both skill position and secondary players that come from the Big 10. McNutt is a former QB and by all accounts is an intelligent football player so he has the chance to be a valuable special teams player, but I prefer prospects with more upside this late in the draft.

(6-30) Brandon Washington - OG - Miami - Grade: C

Washington really struggled at OT after excelling at OG the previous season. I would probably give this a higher grade if he had more positional versatility. He has decent athleticism, but I'm a bit concerned with the number of mental mistakes he made last season. In my opinion, Washington was an underachiever in college and that alone would give me pause. However, he does possess talent and decent value at the end of the 6th round.

(7-22) Bryce Brown - RB - Nomad - Grade: B

Upside, upside, upside. Give me high upside players with character issues in the 7th round all day long. The time it took for me to type this sentence took longer than Brown's college career. I'm not about to tell you he's great based on HS or Frosh game tape. He's big and fast and who the hell knows and that is perfect for the 7th round.

EAGLES 2012 DRAFT GRADE: B

Simply put...SOLID! However, if you don't have a franchise QB, none of the other positions matter. I'm thrilled with the combination of need and value that is the Eagles 2012 draft, but at the end of the day, the Redskins may now be closer to winning a Super Bowl than the Eagles, and that's just depressing. Here's to hoping Nick Foles breaks Drew Brees' NFL records like he did in HS. However, I wouldn't hold your breath.

2008-2011 Big Boards:

As I mentioned before, 2012 is the first time I did a draft target value board instead of just a normal big board. I also mentioned my method in categorizing QB prospects and because of that, I always kept them separate.

2008:

QBF: Matt Ryan - BC
QBA: Joe Flacco - Delaware
QBU: Chad Henne - Michigan
Kevin O'Connell - SD State
Erik Ainge - Tennessee
Matt Flynn - LSU
