Marinomanx013's Eagles Mock Draft v3
Posted 25 December 2012 - 01:36 AM
*R1 - Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A&M - 6'6, 310
I really wanted to try and get cute with this pick... but if Joeckel can man RT, Herremans can kick back inside.
*R2 - Matt Elam, S, Florida - 5'10, 202
An increasingly popular pick on these boards... you don't like his height, but you like everything else.
trade our 3rd rounder to move up ~16 spots and get midway into the 2nd round using picks from 2014 Draft:
(and yes, I was going after this guy before he dominated SMU's bowl game tonight)
*R2 (via R3) - Margus Hunt, DE, SMU - 6'7, 280
Physical specimen, plays with intensity and agility, looks pretty strong too.
*R4 - Blaize Foltz, OG, TCU - 6'4, 310
Strong as an ox guard who can eventually take over at a G spot... this may seem like a pick for the future and it sort of is, but Peters, Mathis, and Herremans (31, 31, and 30 at the start of next season) aren't getting any younger. And we have 2-3 guys coming off of big-time injuries.
if we could get a 4th from trading anybody:
*R4 - Andrew Jackson, ILB, Western Kentucky - 6'1, 265
A small school guy, but an intense presence on the field. A truck in run support. Could be the steak to Kendricks' sizzle... (sorry for that one...)
*R5 - Kwame Geathers, DT, Georgia - 6'6, 355
Would ideally play at NT in the new 3-4 scheme, either early on or later.
R6, R7 - whoever else
I wish I could pick everyone I've been thinking about targeting every since I started deciding upon mock draft strategies for this team... but you can't fix Rome in a day (not the right saying, but you get the idea).
Defense could then feasibly look like:
DE - Cox
NT - Geathers/Thornton
DE - Jenkins/Hunt
OLB - Graham
ILB - Kendricks
ILB - Jackson/Ryans (I know, I know, this is why he got traded out of Houston... maybe we get a guy here, who knows)
OLB - Cole/Curry
I know it ain't perfect, but it'd be a step in the right direction, IMO. We don't have 7 1st round picks, so we can't get elite guys everywhere.

Alright, thanks for the feedback, all. Just wanted to see what it might look like intentionally not trying to fix the entire team this year and trying to cover different bases.
