We all need something to pass the time during the storm that has hit Philadelphia. This should fit the bill: a roundup of what the latest mock drafts predict for the Eagles.
Daniel Jeremiah, NFL.com: CB Tre'Davious White, Louisiana State
The Eagles upgraded the receiver spot in free agency, and now they need to address the cornerback position in the draft.
(A statement of the obvious if ever there was one, but such is life when most mock drafts give each pick two sentences.)
Eric Galko, Sporting News: CB Marlon Humphrey, Alabama
Cornerback remains their biggest need and they’ll have plenty of options. Humphrey is a top-three cornerback in this class.
Dan Kadar, SB Nation: CB Quincy Wilson, Florida
Wilson’s size and ability to play the ball make him a hot commodity.
Emily Kaplan, Sports Illustrated (and formerly the Inquirer): CB Sidney Jones, Washington
Jones can be the elite lockdown corner who elevates Philadelphia’s secondary. He was extremely impressive for the Huskies, whose secondary was essentially the Seattle Seahawks of college football last season. Jones doesn’t shy from physicality in his matchups.
(A disclaimer: Kaplan wrote that before Jones reportedly suffered a torn Achilles tendon at the Huskies' pro day this past Saturday. We'll see what that does to his draft stock.)
Josh Norris, Rotoworld: CB Gareon Conley, Ohio State
If Sidney Jones was healthy, I would have projected him here. Conley is a name drawing more buzz as the process goes along.
Dan Duggan, NJ.com: CB Teez Tabor, Florida
The Eagles filled their holes at wide receiver in free agency, so they can turn to defense with this pick. Tabor would step in immediately at cornerback.
Walter Cherepinsky, WalterFootball.com: RB Dalvin Cook, Florida State
Cook posted poor numbers at the combine, but those figures don't factor in his excellent vision, and besides, Cook's high-level production at Florida State is just too great to ignore.
Brent Sobleski, Bleacher Report: RB Christian McCaffrey, Stanford
The Philadelphia Eagles offense has the potential to be dynamic, but it's missing one piece. Running back remains a void even with veterans Darren Sproles and Ryan Mathews on the roster.
Rob Rang, The Sports Xchange: CB Marlon Humphrey, Alabama
Humphrey is an NFL legacy player with a rare combination of size (6-0, 197 pounds) and speed (4.41), who at just 20 years old appears to be just scratching the surface of his potential.
