Ray75 Posted October 2, 2020 Share Posted October 2, 2020 Is it that time already?! Yep, my first mock draft of the season! It pains me to say it but this team isn’t going anywhere. CW looks lost, Doug doesn’t have any answers, Schwartz stubbornness to adapt has left the defense vulnarable, we’re dealing with a ton of injuries AGAIN and possibly looking at a 4-11-1 record. Shall I continue?! A significant firesale and overhaul of the FO and coaching staff might be inevitable IMO, especially if you take this team’s horrible cap situation for 2021 into account. It’s a total disaster! The elephant in the room is Howie. A glorified accountant who’s good with contracts and numbers but doesn’t have a clue how to build a team and how to identify talent. A perfect example of someone who gained too much power during his tenure but just doesn’t give in to his shortcomings. A round peg in a square hole who’s mistakes have run this team into the ground. From disastrous draft classes to extending players who are way past their prime to squandering draft picks in trades on players that are flat out bad fits here (like Tate and Avery). For all the good things he’s done (trading Maxwell and Alonso to move up in the draft + basically the entire 2017 offseason...briljant), he made ten times as many mistakes. It has to stop! Lurie has to take action and realise 2017 was just an anomaly, a lucky hand in poker not the dawn of a dynasty! For the sake of the argument I say Lurie will give him the sack but I’m holding my breath. If it’s change and a new identity he wants, he has too start there and bring in true football minds. One last word; I think Carson is salvageable. He just needs a mentor, someone who gets inside his head. A QB guru is the only thing that can save his career, not a BFF in Press Taylor. What choice do we have here?! He isn’t tradeable until 2022 anyway...still 24 mln in deadmoney by that time... GM candidates; Jeremiah, Hortiz (Ravens), Dotts (Colts) HC candidates; Bieniemy (Chiefs OC), Daboll (Bills OC), Roman (Ravens OC) and Saleh (Niners DC). Trades; New FO will have to make some tough decisions in order to get under the cap alone. Wouldn’t suprise me if some moves will already be made by the current regime come trade deadline for the same exact reason. - Fletcher Cox to the Las Vegas Raiders for a 2nd in 2021; - Zack Ertz to the NE Patriots for a 2nd and 5th in 2021. Keeper; Malik Jackson on a reduced salary to pair with Javon Hargrave. Cuts/not re-signed; A bunch I can imagine...DJax, Alshon, JP, Mills, NRC, Parks, Gerry... Retire; Jason Kelce Can’t see him sticking around after this debacle. 😢 FA?! Sorry but we’re lucky if we find a way to have just enough room to attract some under the radar FA’s and sign our rookies IMO. Thanks, Howie! Draft; Please new FO and talent evaluators! Hit on all your picks please, please, please!!! 1) Patrick Surtain, II, CB, Alabama; JaMarr Chase is off the board in my scenario , the DE class is mediocre (Rousseau, Rouche, Basham) and I still can’t see us taking a LB like Micah Parsons in the top 5-10 no matter the new philosophy of the FO. Surtain would give the Eagles a true outside corner with elite potential to pair with Slay and the oppertunity to move Maddox back to nickel where he belongs. 2) Chazz Surratt, LB, UNC 6-3ft QB turned off ball LB with great instincts and athletisism. 2) Chris Olave, WR, Ohio State; Do it all safety blanket for a QB with great hands and elite route running abilities. The Jefferson, Kupp, Allen, Thomas type. 2) Patrick Jones, DE, Pitt; Developmental DE with a ton of upside. Will start as a rotational pass rusher like Josh Sweat next year but will push for a starting role in 2022. 3) Alec Lindstrom, OC/OG, Boston College; Kelce’s heir. Seumalo will stay at LG. 5) Cary Angeline, TE, NC State; No.2 TE behind Goedert. 5) Shawn Davis, S, UFC; Rangy centerfielder. No.3 safety behind Wallace and McLeod. The latter’s heir hopefully and otherwise there’s always next year to address the position properly. 5) Kennedy Brooks, RB, Oklahoma; No nonsense physical runner to complement Sanders. 6) Kobie Whiteside, DT, Missouri; Size (6.0ft, sub 300 lbs) is the issue, not his motor and ability. 7) BPA. 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
