ESPN's "other" NFL draft guru Todd McShay released his latest mock draft today just over 2 weeks before the real things takes place. McShay's mock is a little different because in addition to his top pick for each team, he lays out 3 different scenarios detailing different directions they could go.
Here were his scenarios for the Eagles.
Scenario 1: Of all the teams in the top five overall, the Eagles did the best job in free agency and are most free to take the best available player for their schemes. The D-line isn't a pressing need, but Lotulelei is a top-five talent and would give the Eagles another solid 3-4 end and some flexibility in their new 3-4 hybrid scheme.
Scenario 2: With one of the top two offensive tackles available -- in this case Eric Fisher -- that position comes into play. Both Jason Peters and Todd Herremans are coming off injuries, and taking Fisher would allow Herremans to bump inside to guard.
Scenario 3: New coach Chip Kelly could opt for Geno Smith, who fits what Kelly wants to do in terms of making quick decisions, spreading the ball around and mixing in the zone-read option.
