2013 NFL mock draft: Mel Kiper & Todd McShay release latest mocks

Check out our 2013 Eagles mock draft central for more opinions on who could be the #4 pick in April.


With the draft just one day away and with a major trade going down, ESPN's draft gurus Mel Kiper & Todd McShay have both released updated versions of their mock drafts.

For the Eagles, Kiper has a bit of a surprise with QB Geno Smith going at #4. However, he notes that he's projecting the player to the team moreso than where it actually happens.

"More inclined to believe they'll trade up from their Round 2 pick to get him later in Round 1, but can't reflect that here," he wrote.

McShay did not provide explanations this time around but he's clearly got a run on offensive tackles at the top with Joeckel & Fisher going 1-2 and the Eagles grabbing Lane Johnson with the #4. While I wouldn't be shocked to see the Eagles grab Johnson in that spot, I would think a trade down would be the most likely scenario should the draft fall like this. With the two top guys off the board, OT hungry teams like Arizona, Miami & San DIego could start a bidding war for the right to take Johnson at #4 and the Eagles could benefit.
