First round mock drafts and Day 2 mock drafts just simply aren’t enough. The world needs Day 3 mock drafts and thankfully those do exist. Here’s a look at some options for the Eagles as Philadelphia enters Saturday with four picks remaining.

CBS Sports

This is a fourth-round mock only. The Eagles have two picks there today.

125 - Tremon Smith, CB, Central Arkansas. The Eagles replace Daryl Worley with a fast, small-school corner in Smith.

The Eagles brought in Smith for a pre-draft visit. He has the potential to be a nice slot corner for Philly. Smith also provides value as a punt returner; he scored one touchdown and averaged 7.6 yards on 38 tries in college. I wouldn’t mind this pick.

130 - Jamil Demby, OT/G, Maine. Demby is a small-school tackle who will probably kick inside to guard in the NFL.

Demby is a local prospect (Vineland, NJ) who attended the pro day at the Eagles’ facility. The Eagles could really afford to add a tackle/guard type. Keep investing in the trenches.

I wouldn’t be upset if these two picks came to fruition.

Bleacher Report

This mock doesn’t have any pick explanations but it takes us through the rest of the entire 2018 NFL Draft.

125. Philadelphia Eagles (from Baltimore via Tennessee): Shaquem Griffin, LB, UCF

It’d be interesting to see how the Eagles use Griffin, but drafting him would be pretty awesome. He’s clearly a special dude. He can play, too. The only problem here is the Eagles already have a lot of depth linebacker guys. But hey, I wouldn’t be mad with Philly taking Shaq Griffin.

130. Philadelphia Eagles (from Minnesota): Tony Brown, CB, Alabama

Brown is another nickel corner type. He also has a reputation for being a great special teams contributor. I can see the sense in this pick.

206. Philadelphia Eagles: Michael Joseph, CB, Dubuque

Another corner? I think that’s a little excessive. I’d be surprised if we see two out of the Eagles’ five picks be corners when they already have a lot of young defensive backs.

250. Philadelphia Eagles (from Seattle via Philadelphia, Seattle and New England): Josh Allen, RB, Notre Dame

Dear god, please don’t draft Josh Allen. Oh, wait, that’s just a typo. This is supposed to say “Josh Adams”. The Warrington, PA native is a bigger back at 6-2, 213 pounds. Maybe the Eagles think he can be a LeGarrette Blount replacement. I’d be a little disappointed if the Eagles waited until this late to take a running back.


Who do you want the Eagles to draft on Day 3?
