Pre-Free Agency Mock Draft.

We have no idea who they will draft before free agency sets to see who stays or who goes. Based on Team Needs at this moment I have took account of Players that fill need but also best at their position.

TEAM NEEDS: CB, SS, FS , OLB's, NT, OL (depth), O-weapon.

Round 1: Dion Jordan OLB (Oregon). He posses skills to play OLB for a 3-4 or a SAM on a 4-3 Under. Since Billy Davis said we will have a hybrid type defense, Dion Fits the bill. Some might think it might be a reach at 4, we can't really trade down because not many teams would want to trade up this year. I think he is a tremendous athlete who cannot be passed up.

CB, FS, SS, OLB's, NT, OL (depth), O-weapon.

Round 2: Jonathan Cyprien FS (Florida International). We need some play makers on that secondary. We need some hard hitters.

One of the hardest-hitting safeties in the 2013 draft class, Cyprien offers enough range to be reliable in box coverage while displaying an aggressive mentality againt ball carriers and receivers. He plays smart, and that might be the most improtant trait when looking at safeties (NFL.com).

CB, FS, SS, OLB's, NT, OL (depth), O-weapon.

Round 3: Jamar Taylor CB (Boise State): We need Corners who are physical, good tacklers, and isn't afraid to do challenge WR's at the line.

Not afraid to get physical with receivers, often redirects their routes with strong hands. Very good straight-line speed. Works well in press-bail coverage. Fluid hips, smooth in turns and out of the back pedal. Shows the athletic ability to make plays on the football in contested situations. Will stick his nose in the run game when he is able to set the edge.

CB, SS, FS , OLB's, NT, OL (depth), O-weapon.

Round 4: EARL WOLFF SS (North Carolina State): Once more we need a physical tackler and good at both run and pass game. I prefer that we sign a veteran SS to set an example for the rest of the secondary such as Laron Landry. Wolff would be a really good backup and can be a huge steal.

Solidly built defender able to make plays against the run and pass. Physical tackler coming downhill to attack ballcarriers, not afraid to bring intensity to the stop. Diagnoses and attacks. Breaks down quickly and wraps up the legs of receivers effectively to bring them down quickly after the catch. Uses relentless hustle to reach plays, even if on the opposite sideline. Flashes quickness to move from two-deep to a single-high look after the snap, as well as pick up vertical routes and stay with receivers in deep coverage. Displays sound footwork and technique in coverage. Aware zone defender who watches the quarterback and keeps an eye out for targets in his area. Has physical nature and athleticism to contribute on special teams immediately.

CB, SS, FS , OLB's, NT, OL (depth), O-weapon.

Round 5: ANTHONY MCCLOUD NT (Florida State). We need a NT to draw double teams and get little penetration. I expect the eagles will sign a FA for this position so its good that a player from Florida State gets reps and may develop into a starter.

Squat widebody who sees snaps at three technique and nose tackle. Strong upper body. Does well to recognize screens after free releases and peels back to chase down with effectiveness. Flashes getting the leverage advantage. If initial push does for opponent to move backwards, that momentum can be sustained. Consistently tries to get backfield vision, moves side to side. CB, SS, FS , OLB's, NT, OL (depth), O-weapon.

The rest of rounds and compensatory picks can be used for O-line depth and some weapons on the offense. I think we are pretty set on offense as far as starters go but should look into getting a LT or RT in case Peters is not as good as he was before and Todd Continues to struggle.
I think this draft should solely be focused on improving defense because we as much help as we can get. Letting go DRC and Naamdi will free up space to sign an impact player such as Laron Landry and Derek Cox or Sean Smith.
Tell me what you think I did not do too much research because we haven't hit free agency yet and sorry for not focusing on players negatives I like to focus on positives :)
