Eagles 2020 Mock Draft: Getting Carson Wentz 2 new WRs


Dallas sucks. 

Now that I have your attention, here is an Eagles seven-round mock draft that will help them repeat as NFC East Champions: 

1st round, pick 21: Justin Jefferson, LSU

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.  

2nd round, pick 53: Curtis Weaver, DE, Boise State

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. 

3rd round, pick 103: Akeem Davis-Gather, LB, Appalachian 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. 

4th round, pick 127: Amik Robertson, CB, Louisana Tech

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. 

4th round, pick 145: Darryl Williams, C, Mississippi State

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.  

4th round, pick 146: Antonio Gandy-Golden, WR, Liberty

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. 

5th round, pick 168: DeeJay Dallas, RB, Miami, (5th round):

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. 

6th round, pick 190: Anthony Gordon, QB, Washington State

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.
