Mid to Late Round Sleepers

Here is a little list I have of mid to late round players that the Eagles could select in the draft. Feel free to add anyone.

Martavius Bryant (WR Clemson): Bryant is a receiver with excellent size at 6'5 with decent speed. He had a subpar year and had a knack for dropping open passes. He failed to take advantage of the fact the Sammy Watkins was doubled most of the time. I think the Eagles could grab him with a 5th or 6th round pick.

Aundrey Walker (OT/OG Southern Cal): Walker has not yet entered the 2014 draft and could instead return to USC. However if Walker does come out, he would be a nice project offensive lineman for Chip Kelly and Jeff Stoutland. Walker is a long lean athlete and fits the bill to what Kelly wants in his lineman. Eagles could get him with a 4th or 5th round pick.

Brent Urban (DE/DT Virginia): Urban is extremely long at 6'7, but moves extremely well for a 300 pound athlete, quick jump off the ball and has good strength to fight off blockers in the run game. He also can play either 3-4 end or nose tackle at times. Billy Davis would like his versatility, definite upgrade over Clifton Geathers. Should go somewhere in rounds 3 or 4.

Beau Allen (NT Wisconsin): Allen is a big man at 6'3 325, he would be a nice rotation piece to this d-line and might even be a better fit at nose than Bennie Logan. Allen is a good run stopper and would help shore up the holes in the middle of the defense. Allen could be had with a 5th round pick.

Aaron Lynch (OLB South Florida): This might be the player I want the Eagles to get the most in this deep draft. Lynch has excellent size at 6'6 245 and moves extremely well for someone his size. His pass rushing moves are very raw right now and he will only get better with coaching. I know this is a big stretch, but I see a lot of Aldon Smith in him with so much natural pass rushing ability. The Eagles may need to nab him in the 3rd round as he is a player a lot of teams could fall in love with.

Dontae Johnson (CB NC State): Johnson is a long lean cornerback at 6'2. He is a very willing tackler as he had 82 on the year. He has a lot of Cary Williams to him as he likes to play off his receiver. Haters of Cary Williams will not like this pick. Johnson should be had in the 5th or 6th round.

Kenny Ladler (S Vanderbilt): Ladler is a big play safety as he had 5 int and 5 forced fumbles this past year. He is also a very willing a solid tackler. He is a safety who always seems to be around the ball to make a play. He could come in next year and compete for a starting job with our current safeties. Ladler could be had with a 5th or 6th round pick.
