Eagles Are Likely To Draft A Lineman In The First Round

For the last couple of decades, the Eagles have had a philosophy of building their teams by starting upfront with their offensive and defensive lines.  Yes, they believe in having a franchise quarterback.  Reid had Donovan McNabb, whom they drafted with the second pick in the first round and Doug Pederson has Carson Wentz, whom they also, drafted with the second pick in the first round.

I expect the Eagles to focus on their offensive and defensive lines early in this upcoming draft. Fortunately for the Birds, this draft is stocked with talented defensive linemen and the Birds could use additional talent on the front line of their defense.

Despite having All-Pro defensive tackle Fletcher Cox and Pro Bowl defensive tackle Malik Jackson to pressure quarterbacks up the middle, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Birds draft a defensive tackle with their first pick because this year’s draft harvest is so rich at this position.

Alabama’s Quinnen Williams will be gone when the Eagles pick, but there’s a chance   Houston’s Ed Oliver, Clemson’s Christian Wilkins, Mississippi State’s Jeffrey Simmons or Clemson’s Dexter Lawrence will be available.

Wilkins is an exceptional athlete at 6’3” 312 pounds.   He stands out with his combination of size, speed (5.04 in the 40 at the NFL Combine, and agility.   He put constant pressure on opposing quarterbacks while in college, by beating his man and caving in the pocket.  He has an uncanny ability to split double-teams and make plays.  His quickness and athleticism is going to be too much for most NFL guards and centers.  Wilkins has shown leadership ability and outstanding character.  He would be a great fit into the Eagles team first culture.  He’s not expected to be on the draft board very long, so the Eagles chances of drafting him are slim.

Oliver is a human wrecking ball because he’s so quick off the ball and extremely explosive.  He belongs in a 4/3 defense, where he can use his speed and quickness to get penetration in the backfield.  There are questions marks about Oliver’s size and weight but teams are excited when they hear comparisons to Hall of Famer John Randle and the NFL Defensive Player of the Year, Aaron Donald of the Rams.  Like Randle and Donald, Oliver is undersized at 6’1”, 287 pounds, but his speed, quickness, explosiveness and passion make up for it.  Oliver’s speed has allowed him to beat double and triple teams in college.  He might be late in the first round for the Birds.

Lawrence is a massive human being standing 6’4” and weighing 342 pounds, but he also has the speed and quickness of a much smaller player.   The big defensive tackle has shown the ability to cave in the pocket, when playing over the center or he can move to the three-technique position over the guard and get into the backfield.  He has the ability to stun offensive linemen with his hands, then go around them.

His potential is astonishing because of the combination of size, speed and athleticism. At 340 he ran a 5.05 in the forty-yard dash. Lawrence needs to turn up his motor, but I could see him jumping into the rotation behind Cox and Jackson, and becoming a monster in a couple of years.

Simmons is the wild card in this group.  He stands 6’4” and weighs 301 pounds.  He has been a dominator in the SEC throughout his years in college.  He has the size, power and explosiveness to be a first round pick, but he tore his ACL this past season.  Chances are that he won’t be ready for part of the upcoming season, plus he wasn’t invited to the NFL Combine because he was video taped and convicted of punching a woman in an altercation in 2016.   Most draft experts expect him to slide to late in the first round or into the second round of this year’s draft.

If the Birds don’t select a defensive tackle in the first round, then I’m sure their first round pick will be a left tackle, who will be expected to replace Jason Peters in 2020.  Washington State’s Andre Dillard could be just what the doctor ordered for the Birds, if they don’t feel comfortable about handing Peters left tackle position to Halapoulivaati Vaitai or Jordan Mailata, next season.  Dillard stands 6’4” and he weighs 315 pounds.   He has quick feet and quick hands and exhibits outstanding technique, when it comes to pass blocking.  He isn’t a dominating run blocker yet, but has the potential to develop.  Dillard is definitely ready to handle the NFL’s speedy pass rushers.

Eagles 2019 Mock #7

Eagles Shock the NFL and make a Draft Day Trade with the Dolphins for at #13 Overall Pick of the 2019 NFL Draft sending the Dolphins #25, #57 & CB Jalen Mills and Select QB Daniel Jones out of Duke to learn and groom behind Wentz/Sudfeld.. Do Note that Nate Sudfeld is only signed thru 2019 Season and will likely test the Free-Agency Market Next Season so Daniel Jones would be a Great Pick to offer some insurance in case Wentz continues to have injuries. Since Jones would be a 1st Round Pick, the Eagles can control his Contract for the next 5 Years and if Wentz stays Healthy as everyone hopes, then the Eagles could Trade Jones down the road like the NE Patriots have done with Matt Cassell, Jacoby Brissett and Jimmy Garrapolo in recent Years .. From Owner Jeff Luries to GM Howie to Coach Pederson, they are not going to let the QB Room get small and will always have 3 QB’s in their mix.. No one outside the Lurie, the Front Office and Doctors really know how severe Wentz Back Injury really is.. What we all do know is that Wetnz has had 4-5 Surgeries now on his Knees,Shoulder and Back and his Body is not very likely to hold up for another 8-10 Years so the Plan to get a young QB in to groom in the case of more injuries is right now !!! Another added Bonus of Selecting QB Jones at #13 is that the Eagles would prevent the Redskins/Giants from Selecting him later in the 1st Round ..

Hey Paul,

Always enjoy your pushing the envelop. I don’t think they’ll do all that for Daniel Jones, but I like him.

But I as thinking draft a few QB’s, in the mold of the old Green Bay QB pipeline
I like :
1. Clayton Thornson – Northwestern
2. Tyree Jackson – Buffalo
3. Jacob Dolegala – Central Connecticut State

I would like to see them use future #1’s, and Sidney Jones if possible to move up in the draft, and still if possible hold on to their pick at #25, and take that pick and move down throughout the draft.

1a. Josh Allen – Kentucky – OLB
b. Ed Oliver – Houston – DT/DE

2a. Jonathan Abram – Mississippi St – SS
b. Chris Lindstrom – Boston College – OG/C
c. Darnell Savage – Maryland – FS
d. Tytus Howard – Alabama St – OT

3a. Germaine Pratt – NC State – ILB
3b. Justice Hill – Oklahoma St – RB
3c. Vosean Joseph – Florida – OLB

4a, Tristen Hill – Central Florida – DT
4b. Tyree Jackson/ Clayton Thornson
4c. Joe Jackson – Miami – DE
4d, BJ Autry – Jacksonville St – OG

5a. Oli Udoh – Elon College – OG/OT
5b. Bryce Love – Stanford – RB
5c. Byron Cowart – Maryland – DE

6a. Khalil Hodge – Buffalo – ILB/OLB
6b. Jacob Dolegala – Central Connecticut St – QB

Moving up without giving up their own #25 is less likely to occur than my deal listed up above.. What Team is going to forfeit a 1st Round Pick all Together in this 2019 Draft?
Sidney Jones is completely unproven and is not going to have much Value until he stays healthy and shows that he can even play at the NFL and with his minimal sample size in 2 Years with the Eagles it’s not even a given he sees the field much in 2019 unless he has a kick ass Summer

3 Teams looking to Trade Back
#8 – Detroit Lions (GM and HC are from the Pats who love to Trade Back and they want to acquire more Picks to fill the many holes for their Defense)
#13 – Miami Dolphins (have a complete Rebuild going on and would love to acquire more Picks)
#21 – Seattle Seahawks (only have 4 Picks Total this Draft so they will likely Trade Back Twice to acquire more Picks and are attempting to Trade DE Frank Clark for Draft Picks as well)

Eagles have made recent Trades with all these Teams in recent years and I expect that Howie Roseman will be talking to them on Draft Day if not sooner

If Players like DT Ed Oliver, DE Montaze Sweat or LB Devin White start to Fall out of their projected Top 10, then a Deal with Dolphins could very much be in Play

I do like a lot of the same Players you listed up above

Safety Juan Thornhill or Taylor Rapp would be my preference in the 2nd Round
LB’s Pratt, Joseph, or Tre Lamar or Mack Wilson
RB’s David Montgomery or Darnell Henderson of Memphis
OL Lindstrom, Eljton Jenkins , Erick McCoy, David Edwards , Dalton Risner or Nate Davis of UNCC
QB Ryan Finley, J Stidman or Tyree Jackson
WR Isabella, Harmon, Johnson,

Good to hear from you old friend,
If I couldn’t do a deal giving up 2 first round picks, Sidney Jones, and a Brandon Graham Paul, then I wouldn’t be opposed to moving down throughout the draft, because many expected 1st rounders could realistically fall to the 2nd Round like :

Dexter Lawrence, Jeffrey Simmons, Devin Bush, Jonathan Abrahm, Cody Ford, etc……..all COULD!! COULD….Fall to the 2nd for a variety of reasons, and the Eagles could still without trading completely out of the 1st round still be able to draft one of them if the draft were to fall their way.

Then you’ve already mentioned the value still available in the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th rounds. So the Birds would have a nice crop to choose from. There are always potential All Pros in those rounds.

Im all for them trading down Paul….Good hearing from you man.

Same to You Cliff
I wouldn’t mind the Eagles Trading down at all, I think a deal with the Oatiots could happen, send them #25 for their #32 and #64 Picks and toss in CB Jalen Mills
Then Eagles would have #32,#53,#57 & #64
And could see 4 Contributors and eventual Starters in 2 Years Tine

Happy Easter!

You don’t have to watch a bunch of film to see talent = If you have an eye for talent, That aside. Its just fun to project. If you don’t have better insight, then you have no platform to speak.

I would have never signed Brandon Graham in the first place. Outside of causing the fumble of Tom Brady to help in the Super Bowl…..HE HAS DONE NOTHING !!!!……Sign, and trades have been done before; Nothing stupid about trading a player so overrated by fans, and some media

Paul, I just saw some highlights of Darell Henderson – NICE – He is also a better receiver out of the backfield, and blocker than Justice Hill. I have focused on the Eagles getting BOTH, He, and Miles Sanders at RB in the draft.

Which is why I am so for trading down. The latest is that the Eagles absolutely have their eye on Jefferey Simmons, in the late 1st , or early 2nd…..

They could really maximize their depth, and future, by trading down, and still getting elite talent.

I really like the potential of Tyree Jackson, but my 1st choice for a QB, would be
Clayton Thornson of Northwestern. He is more superior in accuracy, and a stronger arm.

Jackson is bigger, and a better athlete, but needs serious coaching.

Tyree Jackson can really turn out to be a nice QB down the road, He’s Big, Athletic, with Leadership Intangibles.. He could really turn out to be a nice Back-Up for Wentz down the Road

I hope the Eagles Can Trade Down/Up to get another Selection or two in that #40-#100 Range

I couple of CB’s I like in the 2nd to 4th Round

Sean Bunting – Central Michigan (6-0 195lbs)
Joejuan Williams – Vandy (6-3 211 lbs)
Lonnie Johnson -,Kentucky (6-2 213lbs)
David Long – Michigan (5-11 196lbs)
Isiah Johnson – Houston (6-2 208lbs)

Some Late Round CB’s
Blace Brown – Troy (6-0 195lbs)
Jordan Brown – South Dakota St (6-0 291lbs)
Bless Ian Austin – Rutgers (6-1 200lbs)

Late

My choice Paul in your list there would be Isaiah Johnson.

He would be making some adjustments in his learning curve for the NFL, because he is a former WR, for Houston. He has only paid really one year as CB. His combine performance, and his measurables will cause some teams to overreact, and reach, but he does need to play special teams, and acclimate himself to the CB position, to be effective on his NFL team.

But that would be my guy, but this is a year that CB, is not reallyl a priority at all.

Today is the Super Bowl for guys who sit on their couch reading draft sites, watching NFL channel getting “insight” into the next generation of great players or flops–
Congrats to the NFL– they’ve have marketed their game to a 24/7-365 event– selling doritos, beer and shitty delivery pizza (dominos and papa john) to all the fat, couch sitting wanna be GMs– I was sitting in a sports restaurant/bar last saturday for lunch and NFL network was replaying hte 2012 NFL draft– sad part is people watched-
To all you draft nerds enjoy tonight, have your ‘scouting’ reports ready to judge, criticize or laud each pick– tell us how they do/don’t fit this scheme (like you know)–
Remember each position is a position of need- eagles value line, secondary and receivers

His degrees are real yet mhenski emailed the one school and posted their reply that the degree he claimed DID NOT EXIST

He told everyone here he was dying and then admitted he lied

He told everyone here he had a job with the Rams and then admitted he lied

He told everyone here Howie Roseman reached out to him and offered him a job HAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

He told everyone his son was Jaylen Brown and mhenski reached out to Jaylens best friend on social media asking if it was true and his best friend said hell no and mhenski copied and pasted their conversation.

Only thing you forgot to mention Mhenski is that you lied about speaking to anyone associated with my son, or my son……He is my son, and you cant change that no matter how much you try to lie……..and you, and I both know you’re lying fella – nice try

…..or any degree I’ve already earned…….stop hating. Im smarter. and more talented than you Mhenski – get over it

The Eagles did reach out to me for a position……so what??….are you jealous they didn’t call you??

No need to continue to engage you in pointless accusations……..My family, and education, are what they are. You must be consulting Haveaseats unreliable sources I guess.

I like Eagles to take a RB in the 2nd or 4th Round

A DT in the Mid-Rounds not that they have 3 experienced, quality DT’s on their Roster and 2 of which on long Deals sonthe need for an early DT is simply not there for them with their first 3 Picks
Interior OL/LB/Safety move up the “Need List” for the Eagles for early in the Draft

Paul, I think they have to move up, and get Cody Ford in the 2nd.

With all the defensive line changes made by the Giants, Cowboys, and Redskins have made in the draft, and free agency, they must reinforce the talent on the offensive line.

Signing Jernagin absolutely changes their Plan, they had him on the back burner for a while now and probably felt the Top ones that they really like will not be there or don’t want to Trade Additional Draft Capitol to get one so Sign the familiar, productive Jernagin and fortify another Position if Need like OL,LB & DB

Howie “looking back, every draft mistake we ever made was when we tried to fill a perceived need when there was clearly a better player on the board “… that said They may see a OL, WR or secondary as BPA…
your dummy argument of two long term DTs is stupid for the following… a rook will be on a rook contract… if he’s good FC will be getting fazed out at the end of it

Multiple Positions on the Board for the Eagles War Room

Perhaps a LB or even a CB/Safety

That is not true…. Jernigans didn’t change their strategy one bit… and if it did they will go back to mediocrity very quickly… a low level signing on the DL doesn’t alter draft thinking….
Jernigans “solidified” the line? I thought you were a player evaluator? I guess not… wow

Jernigan was only signed for 1 year, so drafting one would be to their advantage being proactive about the positions future.
