The Philadelphia Eagles traded for Darryl Tapp with the thought that he and Juqua Parker on the left side have a chance of doing the job, but they also believe in taking the best football player on the board.
That’s why we have them selecting Sergio Kindle of Texas because he could help them both as a linebacker and put his hand down on third down and go get the quarterback.
His versatility would give defensive coordinator the ability to show offenses all types of looks.
The Eagles still believe that you should try to address your needs on the offensive and defensive lines first if you can.¬† After that they will deal with need elsewhere.
Realistically, we think the Eagles are going to move up and grab one of the top rated defensive backs in this draft.¬†¬† We think it will either be one of the two corners or one of the top two safeties, but we don’t get into trades in these mock drafts.
