Mel Kiper Releases Latest NFL Mock Draft

New, comments

Mel Kiper has bestowed upon his his fourth mock draft of the year and his time his hairness has went three rounds! What he hasn't done however, is change his pick for the Eagles from his previous three mocks...

Gabe Carimi, OT, Wisconsin

I have offensive tackle as the top need for a team that has to make sure they don’t take the athleticism of their starting quarterback for granted. In Carimi they get a guy who loves to run block and will sustain those blocks. But he can also take on great pass-rushers, and has shown enough that it figures he could fill in at either tackle position early, potentially starting on the right side with the goal to become a starting left tackle.

As for the other NFC East teams, he’s got the Cowboys taking USC OT Tyron Smith, Redskins taking DE J.J.Watt and the Giants grabbing Florida OG/C Mike Pouncey.

Kiper also mocked out the second and third rounds. In the second he’s got the Eagles filling another need with Utah corner Brandon Burton. In the third he’s got them selecting Ohio St. linebacker Ross Homan.
