Mock drafts: Who will the Eagles take?

Earlier this week, I linked to Mel Kiper's first mock draft. He had the Eagles taking Wisconsin offensive tackle Gabe Carimi.

Mock drafts: Who will the Eagles take?

Earlier this week, I linked to Mel Kiper's first mock draft. He had the Eagles taking Wisconsin offensive tackle Gabe Carimi.

Here's a look at a few others that have popped up:

ESPN.com's Todd McShay also has the Birds taking Carimi:

The Eagles have been up-and-down with their offensive line picks in recent years, but while Carimi has some limitations athletically there is little doubt in my mind he's NFL-ready and will be a quality starter at right tackle for the next 10 years. He's the most technically sound and consistent lineman in this year's class.

Andrew Perloff of SI.com has the Eagles taking Texas cornerback Aaron Williams:

Opponents too easily picked on whoever wasn't being covered by Asante Samuel last season. The Eagles would be very happy if the Longhorns corner was still available.

Rob Rang of CBSSports.com has the Eagles taking Miami cornerback Brandon Harris:

The Eagles feature one of the league's best corners in Asante Samuel, but have struggled with consistency on the other side without journeyman Ellis Hobbs, who missed almost half of the season with a career-threatening neck injury. Harris struggled early on in the Sun Bowl loss to Notre Dame, but his speed and agility make him one of the draft's top corners and a good value here.

TITANS' SEARCH FOR A COORDINATOR

The Titans fired their defensive coordinator, Chuck Cecil, earlier this week. And while Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean calls it a longshot, he said the Titans are interested in Jim L. Mora. Mora, of course, was mentioned in connection with the Eagles' and Broncos' openings, but withdrew his name from consideration for both opportunities.

Per Wyatt, Eric Mangini has emerged as a candidate for the Titans.

The Eagles, meanwhile, are expected to interview Saints defensive backs coach Dennis Allen today.

And finally, if you missed it from Friday, I posted a piece about Brandon Graham's production as a rookie.
