Now that it appears the bulk of free agency is behind us with virtually all of the big names and even not so big names now signed, it's time to go headfirst into draft coverage. There will be several more entries in our "A Closer Look" series with possible Eagles draft picks. Plus there will several more mock draft roundups where we try to get a read on who could possibly be the Eagles 1st round pick.
Speaking of mock drafts, I figured it's time for BGN to get in on the craziness and present a mock draft of it's own.
I'll be doing this several times leading up to the draft and will look to have a few where the community gets involved as well. If you want to be a part of the next BGN mock draft and represent a team or multiple teams, just send an email to bleedinggreenblog at gmail.com with "BGN mock draft" in the subject line.
So without further ado click read more for the first BGN mock draft.
