Rob331 Posted January 6, 2021 Share Posted January 6, 2021 I believe the cap situation and the number of free agents the Eagles have will dictate this draft. Like most of our mocks this will be based on need and not best player available. I believe the Eagles will re-sign one of their unrestricted free agents - Cameron Johnson; their restricted free agent - Boston Scott; and all of their exclusive rights free agents - Juriga, Ward, Fulgham, Opeta, and most importantly Singleton. I also hope they re-sign Jordan Howard. I don't think they can afford to trade Wentz and actually I believe he makes a comeback next year and wins the starting job hands down. I do think they will try to trade Zach Ertz and will hopefully recoup the 4th Howie stupidly traded for Avery. Hopefully they hire an accomplished offensive coordinator and trash the "gang of who knows how many" running the offense. Because they need a quarterback whisperer that unfortunately means Duce doesn't get the job again. This is primarily a defensive draft because that is where the holes. OL is solid with Mailata/Dillard, Seumalo, Brooks, Johnson, Herbig, Driscoll and I'm not ready to replace Kelce because I think he'll be back. If we re=sign Howard we're ok at RB. We'll find a #2 TE among Perkins, Rodgers, Croom, Butler, and Wilson. We'll get an undrafted free agent for our #3 QB. I've seen various compensatory scenarios but to be conservative let's call in a 6th and a 7th. 1 - DaVonta Smith WR Alabama 6'1" 175 4.45. His slight build scare me, but we need a receiver to pair with Reagor. The ideal scenario is that Fulgham excels in camp and Reagor can move to the slot. 2 - Rodarius Williams CB Oklahoma State 6'0" 180 4.48. LeBlanc and NRC are both free agents I hope won't be back and I'm tired of short CB's without speed in the 4.4's. If FArley is available I prefer him, but I think 4 corners go in the first round. 3 - Jaelin Phillips DE Miami(FL) 6'5" 266 4.88. Curry is a free agent and Sweat might not be ready early. 4 - Bubba Bolden S Miami(FL) 6'3" 200 4.53. Mills and Ford are free agents and McCloud might not be ready. 5 - Chase Lucas CB Arizona State 6'0" 195 4.49. We loose 2 corners and we add 2. 5 - Pete Werner LB Ohio State 6'3" 239 4.74. Riley and Gerry are free agents and does anyone want them back. Werner has the size to back up Edwards on running downs. 6 - Sherrod Green LB South Carolina 6'1" 230 4.70. Lose 2 add 2 and Green is the fastest available. 6 comp- Jaquan Brisker S Penn State 6'1" 205 4.58. Rudy Ford's replacement 7 and 7 comp - OL, QB, WR, DT are all possibilities, but we do kid ourselves that guys drafted here make a difference (ok - I know Mills was a find, but didn't he level out) 3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
