ESPN's Todd McShay released his latest mock draft and he has Penn State DT Devon Still heading to the Eagles.
Opinions on Still vary widely. I have an early-second round grade on him, but many feel he is a mid-first-rounder. There is a lot to like about his upside, given his size and ability to penetrate and disrupt. He is inconsistent on tape, but it's hard to find guys with his combination of skills. Alabama S Mark Barron would be a consideration, but the Eagles got S Jaiquan Jarrett in the second round last year, and this would be a bit early for an outside linebacker like North Carolina's Zach Brown. Philadelphia fans, feel free to disagree.
McShay has Luke Kuechly, who he calls "Sean Lee without the health issues," coming off the board at #12 to the Chiefs.
This is one of those picks that depends a lot on what happens in free agency and before the draft. There's a decent chance that the Eagles let Trevor Laws walk and we can't ignore the big bump that Cullen Jenkins is set to receive. Antonio Dixon is coming off a IR season. Plus, Mike Patterson is going to have surgery to remove that AVM on his brain.
DT might be a position where they are ok, but it might also be pretty unsettled. My first reaction was to not like this pick, but after thinking about it, I'll really have to see how the offseason shakes out first.
