Ok, I have completed the first 2 rounds for the Eagles in this mock draft. I went pretty trade crazy in this one, so this may be a little unpopular. I picked mostly the best player available, avoiding picks based on needs. I think I did a good job, but this would probably be unpopular because of all these trades. But here it is-
1-4- I traded this pick to the Dolphins for there 1st rounder and there early 2nd rounder.
1-12- Barkevious Mingo- OLB- LSU
I was planning of Jarvis Jones here, but he did not fall as I expected. Both he and Sharrif Floyd went in the previous 2 picks.
2-4- I traded this pick to the Buccaneers for 2-12, their 4th rounder, and 6th rounder.
2-11- I traded this pick to the Texans for their 2nd and 3rd rounders.
2-12- Jamar Taylor- CB
He was the top player available in my opinion. I had to get sneaky to make sure he was gonna be available, telling the Vikings community that he would probably make it to their late 2nd rounder. Philly could use a CB upgrade.
TRADE- I traded the Eagles 2014 2nd rounder and this years 4th rounder, for the Seahawks 2nd rounder this year.
2-24- Kyle Long- T- Oregon
Kyle Long is thought of by some teams to be 1st round worthy. This is a great value pick, and the eagles could use help at Tackle.
2-25- Johnathan Jenkins- NT/DE
I thought I would get a lineman here to improve the front end of the defense. After Jenkins, there's a big drop- off at DT.
With losing the 2nd rounder next year, some of you won't like this mock. I still have the 3rd round to do today, which I also have the Texans 3rd rounder in. I had a lot of fun with all these trades, and I think this would improve the team a lot. Let me know what you think.
