wild_eagle's round by round big board

Since I've decided Mock Drafts aren't really accurate and don't interest me I'm going to go ahead and write a round-by-round big board of players I feel we should target in each round (there will be 3 guys in each round). I've chosen to do a big board because I feel that it'll provide a much better look at the possibilities.

First Round:

  1. Star Lotulelei- A DLman who can do everything, he would provide a nice compliment to Cox. Star is the type of player who can come in and play the 5-tech and Nose Tackle in the 3-4 under (or whatever Chip wants to label or non-label it as).
  2. Tavon Austin- Lets be honest, is there a more "Chip Kelly"-like guy in this draft? Austin is a kid who can go out there and play, not only play but mature into a stud. Austin can play in the slot, on the outside and even play a little bit of Running Back, think about a Percy Harvin-like player in Chip Kelly's system.
  3. Dee Milliner- In Today's NFL it's clear that if you don't have a competent secondary then you're going to have a lot of points scored on you. Milliner is the best CB from this class and while he doesn't have top notch ball skills it's clear that he's got shutdown ability.
Second Round:
  1. Matt Elam- Philly needs a fiery guy on the Defense, Elam is about as fiery as they come. The guy pretty much just throws everything he has into his game and that gains a lot of respect from me. Elam is essentially a SS and I think without a clear cut guy for either safety position we should go with the most talented one left of the board.
  2. Menelik Watson- Watson is a guy whom I feel could come in and start immediately at OT, specifically RT. He would allow us to move Herremans in to RG and hopefully give us a LT of the Future in house as he gains experience over the next season or two. Watson is 6-5 and 310lbs and has 34' arms. His measurables show he's athletic enough for a fast-paced system.
  3. Kyle Long- I personally like Kyle Long, I don't think he's necessarily a LT of the Future but I think he'd serve as a great developmental piece to try at RT and if he doesn't work well then he can move down to OG. I feel he'd be a great puzzle piece to have (plus he'd help teach Kelly's system).
Third Round:
  1. Kiko Alonso- This is a guy they say has the ability to play every LB position but I feel Kiko's best position would be as the MIKE in the 3-4, pretty much his job will be to learn from Ryans over a few seasons and eventually become his successor.
  2. Jordan Poyer- I like Poyer because he is a guy who seems to always be around the football, if we add him in the 3rd we can look to have him learn from Fletcher and Williams and just see what he develops into.
  3. Jesse Williams- Jesse Williams is a prototypical NT, he's big, anchors well and will keep your ILB's clean. I don't see how Jesse isn't a target for the Eagles and the best part is he doesn't have to start immediately because we have Sopoaga in house for the short term.
Fourth Round:
  1. David Quessenberry- This guy is a jack of all trades for the Offensive Line, he has played Center, Guard and Tackle throughout his college career and would be a great addition as far as depth to this offensive line, he more fits as a C/OG in the NFL however but nonetheless he would be great developmental depth.
  2. T.J. McDonald- McDonald looked like he was going to be the top Safety at one point, however if we can grab him in the 4th he'd be a guy who could challenge either safety position immediately.
  3. Tyrann Mathieu- The Honey Badger again would be a little more than a flyer pick, his talent is undeniable and his return ability is special. The Eagles could grab him late, let him develop at either CB or Safety while returning kicks for us immediately.
Fifth Round:
  1. Jordan Reed- Reed is a big, strong, fast TE who for whatever reason never quite got his head right. Given that I think that if Reed is sitting there when the Eagles pick in the 5th round that we will take him and see what Kelly can do with his talent. He'd immediately challenge Harbor, and possibly even Celek.
  2. Mike Gillislee- Gillislee was a workhorse for the Gators in 2012, and while he's not some physical freak and he's not exactly versatile he is a decent pass catcher and he's a hard nosed runner. With McCoy, Brown and Polk on the roster at RB right now I think it'd be best to add a guy who is a potential workhorse just in the event one of our top RB's goes down.
  3. Zac Dysert- This is a guy who we can bring in to challenge the 3rd string QB and possibly turn into a good player, this is nothing but a developmental pick.
Sixth Round:
  1. Chase Thomas- Thomas is an OLB/DE, I think he can provide depth to Barwin/Graham/Whoever as the OLB's and could even develop into something special.
  2. Denard Robinson- He's a QB/WR/KR/PR and a huge project at whatever he plays, but I think with a late round pick it'd be worth going and grabbing somebody like Robinson to come in and help with the return game, plus in Kelly's system speed is something that is needed and Robinson has plenty of it.
  3. Xavier Nixon- Project OT, most likely would fit on the Right Side. I doubt he'd be anything more than decent depth.
Seventh Round:
  1. Brad Wing- He's a punter with an attitude, that's about it.. Oh and we probably need a punter to come in and compete.
  2. TJ Barnes- Developmental NT, not much more than that honestly.
  3. Ray Ray Armstrong- Developmental Safety, don't really know where he fits I just know he's got some talent.
