Like we said yesterday, Fletcher Cox is the new Luke Kuechly. Mock drafters immediately moved on from picking the BC LB in every single mock draft for the Eagles to the Mississippi State DT. The latest is Wes Bunting of the National Football Post.

15. Philadelphia Eagles: Mississippi State DT Fletcher Cox

Cox is the kind of potential three-technique who can create behind the line of scrimmage and stop plays before they start. The Eagles don’t have a huge need at DT, but Cox could still mature into a playmaker inside, at a position where Philly lacks an impact guy.

I would call Cullen Jenkins an "impact guy" personally... but overall I do agree with his point. A DT pick here isn't really about need, it's about taking a player of value at a position where there's room for plenty of guys to get playing time and make an impact.
