The NFL draft is still more than two months away, but it’s never too early to dive into what the Eagles might do with their No. 25 pick.
In our first Eagles-only, seven-round mock draft, I had them going with a defensive lineman (see story).
Here’s a roundup of picks from others:
Nasir Adderley, S, Delaware
Here’s what they said: “Adderley made a name for himself over the final months of the season and the FCS standout could find himself among the first 32 players taken. He'll have a chance to prove himself at the Senior Bowl and the biggest question might be his size — is he big enough to play safety over the course of an NFL season — because every other aspect of his game checks all the boxes of what teams look for in a defensive back. Either way, Corey Graham is 33 and is headed for free agency and ranked 57th among all safeties, according to Pro Football Focus. The Eagles need to upgrade the position.”
Christian Wilkins, DT, Clemson
Here’s what they said: “This would be the steal of the draft for the Eagles. Wilkins is a top-10 talent.”
Greg Little, OT, Ole Miss
Here’s what they said: “Jason Peters turns 37 this week, and time is running out on his outstanding career. It would be smart of the Eagles to draft his replacement now and make sure he’s ready to go. Little is a classic left tackle with size and athleticism to mirror speed rushers and the edge.”
Deionte Thompson, FS, Alabama
Here’s what they said: “The Eagles' safety group could use a youthful member. Thompson wasn't a consistent playmaker for the Crimson Tide in 2018 ... but he's very rangy and equally as impactful stopping the run as he is in coverage.”
Kelvin Harmon, WR, NC State
Here’s what they said: “Harmon has the physicality to win at the catch point and over the middle, adding another outside weapon to the Eagles offense. He graded at 83.3 overall last season while winning 17 of his 30 contested catch opportunities.”
Yodny Cajuste, OT, West Virginia
Here’s what they said: “Protecting Carson Wentz has to be Philly’s primary objective, and finding a long-term replacement for Jason Peters should be a huge part of that. Cajuste is still smoothing out the rough edges in his game, but he’s got all the talent to be a stud blocker in the NFL.”
