NFL Draft 2018: Top 10 best players still available for the Eagles

Who should the Birds pick now?

NFL: Combine Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

The first round of the 2018 NFL Draft flew by and the Eagles traded out of the 32nd pick (which they got by winning the Super Bowl). Who are the top players left on the second day of the draft?

  1. Will Hernandez, Guard, UTEP: An outstanding run blocker and all around stud. The Eagles could massively upgrade their interior offensive line and build a face melting group of blockers.
  2. Derrius Guice, Running Back, LSU: Franchise changing playmaker. Character issues have pushed Guice out of the first round and the Eagles can capitalize.
  3. Maurice Hurst, Interior Defensive Lineman, Michigan: With a heart issue scaring teams away, the Eagles could scoop up the impressive interior rusher to bolster defensive line depth.
  4. Harold Landry, EDGE, Boston College: Medical issues seemingly dropped Landry down in the draft. He is a talented edge rusher with a lot to offer on every round.
  5. Courtland Sutton, Wide Receiver, SMU: The big time playmaker out of SMU can win all over the field. He is an outstanding athlete who can win on the outside, in the slot and in contested situations.
  6. Josh Jackson, Cornerback, Iowa: Lack of experience seemingly flagged Jackson out of being a first round pick. Jackson is a playmaker who the Eagles could want in their defensive backfield.
  7. Connor Williams, Offensive Tackle, Texas: Guard or tackle, Williams can upgrade an offensive line.
  8. James Washington, Wide Receiver, Oklahoma State: A deep threat and touchdown machine, size and lack of athleticism likely made NFL teams think twice about Washington in the first. Washington is going to be a value pick for teams seeking explosive options on offense.
  9. Ronald Jones, Running Back, USC: Jones had a rough offseason filled with bad testing and injuries. Jones’ tape speaks for himself and could be a home run threat in the Eagles offense.
  10. Mike Gesicki, Tight End, Penn State: Hyper athletic, but something kept him out of the first round (The NFL is dumb). Gesicki is going to be a weapon for whichever team is smart enough to draft him.
