Looking at Various Mock Drafts

The NFL Draft can have a significant impact on a football team. We’ve seen plenty of teams draft guys early that turn out to be busts and teams draft guys late that turn out to be stars. The draft is always important, but many feel that draft is particularly important for the Eagles and I agree. There are plenty of holes on this team that need to be solidified for them to be a real Super Bowl contender. Most of these holes are on the defense, and as we will see below, everyone can agree on that.

Personally, I’d like to see the Eagles land a stud safety in the draft but I’m not sure if there will be one around with the 24th overall selection. Some of the drafts below have the Eagles ending up with Earl Thomas or Taylor Mays. I’m not sold on either of these guys yet, but think there are less question marks with Thomas. For those that don’t have the Eagles taking a safety, everyone else has the Eagles going DE/OLB which I can definitely agree with. I think that if there is no safety on the board truly worthy of a first round selection, the DE/OLB position is the way to go. At that point, it’s about picking the best guy on the board that will fit into the Eagles system.

Check out the Mock Draft’s below and let us know if you agree with any of these picks or what you think the Eagles should do with their first round pick!
