Now that I have your attention, here is an Eagles seven-round mock draft that will help them repeat as NFC East Champions:
In case you missed it, the Eagles last slot receiver had some issues dropping the ball. Jefferson solves that problem in a big way and gives Carson Wentz an all-around play maker on offense to develop with. I’ll take my chances on a guy who scored 18 touchdowns playing against the best teams in college football.
After getting a receiver in the first round the Eagles go back to loading up their defense with talent. Weaver brings a ton of potential and production, finishing with 13.5 sacks last season and 34.0 overall in three years at Boise State.
The Eagles might not value the linebacker position, but sign me up a 6-foot-1, 219 pound linebacker that can cover and deliver big hits. His athleticism pairs nicely with the Eagles projected starting middle linebacker, T.J. Edwards.
The Eagles love undersized corners with some attitude. Robertson checks off both those boths. Can play both outside and in nickel, which is good, because the Eagles only have one cornerback (Darius Slay) they can count on right now.
Sad to think a legend like Jason Kelce will one day retire. When that day does come, Williams has the athleticism to take over at center, while being able to be a backup at guard next season as well.
Maybe J.J. Arcega-Whiteside surprises us all next year. I can’t plan on that happening. Gandy-Golden is a better athlete than Arcega-Whiteside, has better hands and a higher ceiling. Potential to be a steal in the fourth round. Especially with Carson Wentz throwing him the ball.
As mentioned above, Dallas sucks. DeeJay Dallas does not. A versatile back that is dangerous in the passing game, he should pair nicely with Miles Sanders and Boston Scott to give the Eagles a three-headed monster in the passing game.
Gordon does one thing that last year’s draft pick at quarterback, Clayton Thorson, does not — he throws an accurate ball. Pretty important quality for a quarterback. Gordon could develop into a nice backup with a year-or-two of being coached up by Doug Pederson.
