Eagles Mock draft
2014 Future 2nd round pick
Should Geno Smith fall to #4, and the Cardinals
express interest, getting a second rounder and
a future 2nd round pick along with a first
rounder would be great value.
#7-Lane Johnson OT, Oklahoma
To many, Johnson is one of the more talented
tackles to declare for the draft. Standing at
6'7,300 pounds. He had great timing on the
20-yard shuffle and the 40-yard dash.
According to most scouting reports, Johnson
is the type of Olineman for Kelly's projected
#35-E.J Manuel QB-FSU
We've seen Manuel's stock rise after the combine
and a strong performance in the senior bowl.
Including mutual interest by seemingly both
Manuel and the Eagles.
the game is going: Two dimensional QB's that can
extend plays, much like McNabb did for us for
Manuel's by all extensions raw, raw in the pocket.
Raw with his throwing, raw with his accuracy.
But his talent is undeniable, and guys who *want*
to be here, is a stark contrast to previous
#38-Cornellius Carradine DE-FSU
Carradine is a End that could develop into a
3-4 OLB given time, with his size and first step
he does a good job closing out running lanes and
he has good explosion.
#67-T.J McDonald FS-USC
In adding Chung and Williams, we really hit
our secondary but there's the need for one
to two more impact players there. Running a
4.5 40-yarder with a 4.2 20-yard shuffle,
McDonald has been gifted with athleticism,
as well as an NFL bloodline which makes him a
real ntelligent player.
Good in man coverage, good against the run. There's
nothing really bad you can say about him. Which makes
him good for us.
#98-Alvin Bailey T/G-Arkansas
I know there are some fans who feel like the
combine is overrated. That we would end up
falling for the fluff rather than substance.
But Bailey's had a pretty good career, the
Arkansas line in general allowing them to
have a solid rushing attack.
Bailey's athleticism, versatility and consistency
make him a pick I think BGN will agree with.
#132-Chris Harper WR-Kansas State
Chip Kelly wants WR's that can block, this guy
can block. With his long arms and huge hands,
Harper can be a weapon for red zone offensive
#188-Montori Hughes DT-Tennessee-Martin
Hughes is a physical BEAST at 6-4, 329 and
33.6 Arm. BGN, here's your future Nose Tackle.
Character issues make him a likely late round
pick but I think we can mold him into shape.
#196-Brandon McGee CB-Miami
I like this kid, though he's on the short side
at 5'11, he doesn't make many game changing
plays but he does have a nose for the ball
and makes tackles(54 last year).
#198-DC Jefferson TE-Rutgers
At 6-6, 255 with a 34 arm and a 10 hand,
Jefferson needs to improve as a blocker but
he has the natural athletic mold to become
such a player. With Celek and Casey, we don't
need to address TE as early as round 3. Despite
how sexy getting Travis would be.
#216-Marcus Lattimore RB-South Carolina
Extremely talented kid, one that figures to
be out for mini camps, OTA's and probably most
of training camp. Perhaps even for a portion
of the year.
That's why he's projected at the very worst to
be a 7th rounder despite his talents. If he's here,
a future investment isn't all that bad.
