The NFL Draft is still 66 days away, but already there’s plenty of mock drafts and projections as to what teams are going to do once Roger Goodell takes the platform in Nashville, Tennessee and gets booed as he does every year.
The Eagles are sitting at number 25 in the first round, and will look to improve the team to try and make a run at the NFC East Title in 2019.
As far as projections go, SB Nation today released their first Mock Draft for April’s big event, and they have the Eagles going running back in the first round, taking Josh Jacobs from Alabama.
The Eagles obviously need to find some fixes in the secondary, and left tackle Jason Peters’ career is winding down. But it will be hard to pass up on Jacobs, easily the draft’s top running back this year. Jay Ajayi is a free agent the Eagles could let walk, and Philadelphia’s backups are nothing special. Jacobs can be special.
