Ideal Mock Draft (Edited)

Round 1 Pick 4: Eric Fisher (OT, Central Michigan)

With Luke Joeckel most likely being taken with the first pick by Andy's Chiefs, Geno Smith will probably come next and be taken by the Jags since they have shown significant interest in him and need to replace their bust of a QB in Gabbert, and Sharrif Floyd(or)Dion Jordan(or)Dee Milliner being taken next by the Raiders, I see the Eagles taking Eric Fisher with their pick because he is the next best OT on the board.

Round 2 Pick 3: John Jenkins (NT/DT, Georgia)

By this point in the draft, all of the first round NTs/DTs will have been taken such as Sharrif Floyd, Star Lotulelei, and Sheldon Richardson, and the Eagles must fill a void in their defense here with this pick. I do not see Isaac Sopoaga as an every down NT or even a long term solution at the position, therefore, this pick seems necessary.

Round 3 Pick 5: Robert Alford (CB, Southeastern Louisiana)

The Eagles need help at CB with the departure of Nnamdi and DRC, and eventhough they have picked up Cary Williams and Bradley Fletcher. I feel that at this point most of the top corners in the draft will be taken (Milliner, Rhodes, Trufant, Banks, Amerson, ect.) and if this guy is still on the board then the Eagles should take him. He had a solid 40 time (4.39) and also recorded 10 INTs and 20 PDs during his college career.

Round 4 Pick 4: J.J. Wilcox (S, Georgia Southern)

I know the Eagles picked up both Patrick Chung and Kenny Phillips in FA, but there is no doubt in my mind that one of those two will injure themselves this season, and I do not want to see Nate Allen... let alone Kurt Coleman in there as a starter. Wilcox is a fast safety with nice height for the position, who can also return kicks. I think he can develop into a solid starter for the Eagles in the near future... or possibly even this season.

Round 5 Pick 3: Marqise Goodwin (WR, Texas)

With blazing speed, and the ability to feature at RB, I see Goodwin becoming another one of Chip Kelly's pieces in the new Eagles offense. With DeSean Jackson at #1, Jeremy Maclin at #2, Goodwin can rotate in the game at slot whenever Jason Avant or possibly the recently traded for Arrelious Benn are not in the game. If he is still available at this point in the draft, I think that he is a real steal.

Round 7 Pick 4: Lerentee McCray (OLB, Florida)

An experienced 3-4 OLB, McCray is a powerful and athletic prospect who gave Luke Joeckel trouble when Florida faced Texas A&M this past season. A good addition this late in the draft if available.

Round 7 Pick 6: Joe Kruger (DE, Utah)

The brother of current NFL star Paul Kruger, the idea of Joe developing into the player that his brother is, is worth a late round draft pick. If drafted, Joe Kruger could battle for the starting DE spot opposite of Fletcher Cox and win it, or contribute on special teams and develop into a starter. (Also has experience in a 3-4 defense).

Round 7 Pick 33 (COMP): Ray Ray Armstrong (S, Miami/Faulkner)

Played two seasons for the Miami Hurricanes and registered 80 tackles, 3 INTs, and 1 TD in 21 games. He was dismissed from the Miami Hurricanes team in 2012, then transferred to Faulkner University only to find out that he was declared ineligible as a result of his previous dismissal from the Hurricanes. Armstrong is a tall safety standing at 6"4, and weights 225 pounds. He was at one point considered one of the best safeties in college football and would be great to add this late in the draft to compete with other Eagles safeties and someday earn a starting spot on the team.
