Sporting News Mock Draft Has Guess Who To The Eagles?

New, comments

Russ Lande of The Sporting News released his latest mock this week and guess who he has the Eagles taking?!

15. Philadelphia Eagles: Luke Kuechly*, LB, Boston College. With Andy Reid at the helm, the Eagles have never taken a linebacker in the first round. But Kuechly is a special athlete who draws comparisons to Brian Urlacher and would solve their biggest weakness.

No way you guessed that right? I mean, it's not like almost every other mock draft has the same thing...

Like I've said before, this pick makes sense now, but there's certainly a decent crop of LBs set to hit the free agent market that might better fit the Eagles needs than a rookie. Although the prospect of getting a guy that fill one of those spots for the next 6-7 years is enticing, the team already has so much youth at the LB position, adding more may not be the solution.

Although... the next Brian Urlacher would be nice.
