Newtown Square resident and NFL Network draft guru Mike Mayock has finally released his much-anticipated NFL Mock Draft on NFL.com.

Mayock has the Eagles selecting an offensive lineman with the fourth overall pick, but not Texas A&M’s Luke Joeckel or Central Michigan’s Eric Fisher as he has them going one and two.

The Haverford School graduate has the Eagles selecting Oklahoma offensive tackle Lane Johnson with the first draft pick in the Chip Kelly era.

“He’s the freakiest tackle I’ve ever seen in my life,” Mayock said of Johnson. “And because of what Chip Kelly does — up-tempo, maximize snaps, throw the bubble screens, throw the tunnel screens — he needs a great athlete at left tackle.”

Mayock does indeed have Joeckel and Fisher going No. 1 and No. 2, but not in that order.

He actually has Andy Reid and the Kansas City Chiefs selecting Fisher with the first overall pick instead of Joeckel, who had been at the top of many draft boards and mock drafts heading into Thursday’s NFL Draft.

Mayock does have Joeckel going No. 2, however, to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

After the Eagles select Johnson at No. 4, Mayock has the Oakland Raiders selecting Philadelphia native Sharrif Floyd at No. 5.
