Ideal Draft Strategy (First 3 rounds)




If I were the Eagles here's what I would do:

1st Round:

Trade with the Dolphins who are in need of an offensive tackle after the departure of Jake Long for a 1st and 2nd rounder, with the Dolphins pick, the Eagles should select Sheldon Richardson who would play 3-4 end, because Vinny Curry simply cannot.

2nd Round:

Take EJ Manuel with their first pick in the 2nd round. Vick, the only quarterback seemingly capable of running Kelly's system is older now and doesn't even have the speed he used to. EJ Manuel, a fast, explosive, large quarterback who looks like he can handle the system with ease. With their other second rounder that they would've aquired from the Dolphins, they should take Darius Slay. Although Jonathan Banks is rated higher, Slay has a higher ceiling because he is faster and is good at forcing drops. He is also a talented special teams player.

3rd round:

Take Kyle Long out of Oregon. Can play OT or OG depending on what we feel like doing with Herremans. Has worked with Kelly in the past and knows his system. His strong Geneaology also makes him more appealing.
