My 7 Round Mock Draft for the Eagles (before Samuel deal)

Here is my 7 Round Mock for the Eagles, if you want to see who else was on the board check it out Here!
1st Round:
#15. - CB Stephon Gilmore, South Carolina:

The Eagles could look to add a shutdown corner here, to replace Asante Samuel. They don't have any pressing needs, so this is a bit of a wildcard pick, but Gilmore could fit.

2nd Round:
#46. - DT Brandon Thompson, Clemson

-I think Philly could use a 3rd rotational DT, especially to help out against the run.

#51. (via Arizona)- RB Doug Martin, Boise State

-Not a need pick by any means, but a nice skill set balance to McCoy and could give Philly an elite 1-2 punch running the football.


3rd Round:
88. Philadelphia (via Houston)- OLB Josh Kaddu, Oregon

-Kaddu I see as a really good fit here, he could win an outside starting job, or could at least find a role as a situational pass rusher.

4th Round:
#114. - CB/FS Josh Norman, Coastal Carolina

-Norman gets knocked some for his speed, but he's a good overall CB who could get some looks at FS as well.

5th Round:
#153 - OT Matt Reynolds, BYU

-The Eagles could use some offensive line depth, and while Reynolds doesn't have great upside, he should be at least a fairly good back-up G/T

6th Round:
#172. (via Colts)- CB Coryell Judie, Texas A&M

-Excellent value pick here DRC is an impending free agent meaning the depth of this position could get problamatic down the road.


#194. (via Denver)- S Phillip Thomas, Syracuse

-rebuilding this secondary is key, I'm not as high on Thomas as some people but for a 6th round pick there is nice value here.

#200. (via N.E.)- RB Michael Smith, Utah State

-This is not a need pick at all, but you can't beat the value and upside.

I know this draft is very secondary and running back heavy, but I think both areas could be improved. Adding these DB's could really be a great long term move for the Eagles. And while two backs seem excessive, Philly should look to keep 4 guys this year, and giving more carries to their second back can extend McCoy's shelf life. Let me know what you think!
