The 2015 NFL offseason is starting to heat up with the start of free agency just a little over a week away. In the meantime, there are 59 days until the 2015 NFL Draft begins on April 30, so let's kill some time with our regularly scheduled Mock Draft Monday series. Don't forget to also check out last week's mock draft roundup.

Last week, SB Nation's Dan Kadar had the Eagles picking a troubled cornerback. This week, the Eagles end up picking a cornerback yet again but it might not be the one you expect to fall to No. 20:

"Trae Waynes, CB, Michigan State - Some are considering Waynes a possible top 10 pick now after he ran a 4.35 40-yard dash at the combine. While that number is impressive, it shouldn’t quite vault him that high in the draft. The middle of the first round is his proper range, and that should suit Philadelphia nicely. Waynes can come in, start as a rookie and help improve the team’s back half."

Waynes's speed is impressive. He's faster than any cornerback in this year's draft class. Here's a look at his spider graph:

Kadar's mock goes two rounds deep this week. In the second round, the Eagles select a quarterback: UCLA's Brett Hundley.

"Brett Hundley, QB, UCLA - Surprise! It seems apparent that the Eagles will use a draft pick at some point this year on a quarterback. After Mariota and Winston are gone, why not go with the one with the most potential? That’s Hundley, whom Chip Kelly made a strong push to recruit while at Oregon."

The 6-3 redshirt junior finished his UCLA career with 67.4% of his passes completed for 9,966 yards, 75 touchdowns, and 25 interceptions in 40 games played. He also rushed for 30 scores on 1,747 yards.

There are significant concern's about Hundley's ability as a passer. "I don't think he can mentally process," one NFL scout said, via The Journal Sentinel. "His arm and talent are OK. He's got a lot of flaws in his game." BGN's Mike Kaye recently profiled Hundley here.

(Obligatory Marcus Mariota mention: he goes No. 6 to the New York Jets in this week's draft.)
