Eagles Mock Draft 1.0 – GCOBB.COM


The Eagles need playmakers and appear to be relying heavily on the 2021 NFL Draft result to fill several groups of starting positions. Linebacker, cornerback, safety, wide receiver and inside offensive line are the positional groups Roseman and his company should prioritize. The selections I made at the Eagles take into consideration ADP, their current roster and the 2022 outlook. With 11 draft picks, the assets are available to inject youngsters into the roster.

Round 1: No. 12Jaycee Horn, CB (South Carolina)–In 2002, the Eagles drafted Lito Sheppard and Sheldon Brown in the first two rounds almost two decades ago. Brown played collegially in South Carolina, the same 2019 Defensive Player of the Year that Stephon Gilmore dated. Horn reminds me of Gilmore, but he also brings some of the loot his father played with in his twelve-year NFL career. The idea of ​​a playmaker wide receiver has merit, but the Eagles need a plug and play starter opposed to Darius Slay. Horn would be my pick over Patrick Surtain if I had my pick between the two, this guy will be a pro-bowler in his first two seasons in the NFL.

2nd round: No. 37-Elijah Moore, WR (Ole Miss)– Every year I have a player who immediately catches my eye, Moore was the best guy this year on my list. Moore understands her strengths and doesn’t engage in a conversation about her height limitations. He catches whatever is thrown at him and makes it difficult for opposing defenses to minimize the YAC. He enjoys having an in-game dialogue with the opponent, an advantage the soft shell of the Eagles’ current core is sorely lacking. If the Eagles are sticking with the Hurts as a quarterback, it would be wise to invest in skilled players who allow quick and accurate shots. Moore presents this big game after catching skills like Jaylen Waddle, while also offering another punt return option. Moore can turn a screen pass into a catch and score 50 yards.

Round 3: No. 70Dylan Moses, LB (Alabama)– Bring the physique back to the linebacker position, Moses is not a trotter, but he has a nastiness in his downhill style. Last year’s Moses movie shows a player embarrassed by a lingering injury, when he is healthy he goes to play. I wouldn’t classify it as another Jordan Hicks situation, but at any point, betting on a player coming out of an injury is risky. If the Eagles can take a 3rd circular on a developing player like Davian Taylor, investing in a big school NFL-ready prospect shouldn’t be a problem. Moses has been compared to former Eagle DeMeco Ryans in one of my previous posts, I could see Moses playing as the strong full-line linebacker in 2021 and moving up to middle linebacker in 2022.

Round 3: No. 84Monty Rice, LB (Georgia)– Defensive coaches love a player who always shows up on a movie to hunt down the offensive player with the soccer ball in their hands. Rice has a huge IQ and the athletic traits to play side-to-side while coming back to cover. Looking only at the stats and Rice would be considered more of a Day 3 guy, he did a lot of the dirty work that got several of his teammates to earn their names in the first two laps. Rice isn’t a day one starter, I see him winning some meaningful shots as the season progresses and the speed of the NFL game slows down for him.

Round 4: n ° 123Paris Ford, S, (Pittsburgh)-Ford has the defensive back flexibility that would allow him to play multiple roles his rookie season, but he’s better suited as a free safety. Ford has some technical work to clean up, which is why he’s scheduled to be a round fourth through fifth guy, but I’m not a person who likes to wait and see if a guy is going to drop a lap, identify your guy and m ‘make sure he becomes an eagle. Ford likes to hit, has good overall athleticism, a bit thin, so his rookie season would see extended time in the weight room.

Round 5: No. 150Robert Hainsey, OT (Notre-Dame)-Hainsey will be asked to transition into custody at the NFL level and has been eclipsed by other members of his offensive line. Hainsey has the strength to win his 1: 1 missions, he will need to improve his footwork, he can fall into a bad habit of cutting his feet when engaged with defenders and losing his positioning. With a. A decent chance of Isaac Seumalo moving to center for the 2022 season, Hainsey would have a full year to develop under the tutelage of one of the league’s top offensive linemen at Jeff Stoutland.

Round 6: No. 189Kary Vincent Jr, CB (LSU)– It’s rare that a three-year-old newbie at a school like LSU gets so little attention, but there’s nothing that really stands out about Vincent. Experience and minimal error against some of the top college receivers best describes Vincent, an upgrade from the street names the Eagles have plugged in in recent seasons.

Round 6: No. 224Kylin Hill, RB (State of Mississippi) – Hill reminds me of Marlon Mack with the Indianapolis Colts, nothing too flashy but can hold up. Hill would be a good addition to Saunders as I don’t see the Eagles heading for a bigger north-south type.

Round 6: No. 225Deomodore Lennoir, CB (Oregon)-It’s always hard for me to consider signing Oregon players thanks to Chip Kelly, but Lennoir reminds me of when Jordan Poyer was drafted by the Oregon State Eagles. Lennoir should finally move to safety, despite good speed, he misses the second burst to remain stride by stride with the NFL receivers.

Round 7: No. 234Payton Turner, DE (Houston)-Athletic upside with a strong work ethic, fought better competition but has the length to position well against the race. Will need to diversify rushing moves to gain a position on the practice squad.

Round 7: n ° 240Briley Moore, TE (State of Kansas)– Moore has body control for his size and was used in several training sessions last season after being transferred from northern Iowa. A draft and training player, the Eagles need to add perspective as they could explore a full rebuild to the position with Ertz on his start, Goedert has yet to show he can be the guy and Richard Rodgers on a one year contract.
