Todd McShay's 2014 NFL Mock Draft 3.0: Eagles Address Secondary First

The Eagles address their secondary in Todd McShay's latest mock draft.

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay released the most recent edition of his 2014 NFL Mock Draft on Thursday morning. Here's who he had the Eagles taking with the No. 22 pick:

Bradley Roby

COLLEGE: Ohio State
AGE: 21
HT: 5-11
WT: 194

Analysis: The best values at this spot for Philadelphia are going to be at cornerback -- outside linebacker and safety can wait until later, especially if the top two safeties are off the board as they are in this scenario. Roby needs to be coached up, as he got burned several times this season as a result of poor discipline, but his size, speed, athleticism and playmaking ability make him capable of developing into a shutdown corner on the outside.

Roby had a decent showing at the 2014 NFL Combine, coming in as the fourth fastest cornerback in the 40-yard dash. He was only .02 off the leader and .01 behind the tie for second place. Roby also finished with a top five 20-yard shuttle time. Take a look at his spider graph via Mockdraftable:

The Eagles seem to be content with their starting cornerbacks as it stands, but neither Cary Williams nor Bradley Fletcher seem like long-term options. Drafting a cornerback gives the Eagles immediate depth and a long-term answer at the position.

Elsewhere in the NFC East, the Giants take Taylor Lewan to solidify their offensive line, and the Cowboys address the other side of the trench with defensive lineman Timmy Jernigan.
