    My draft

    Trade down to #24 with Pittsburgh. We trade 15 for 24 and 56.

    24 donta Hightower - LB Alabama. He learns from fellow Alabama alum Ryans. Starts at OLB.

    46 Jerel Worthy DT Michigan St.

    51 Harrison Smith S Notre Dame. Starts at one S spot big kid.

    56 Zebrie Sanders LOT Fla State Andy loves his linemen and Bell has a history of injuries.

    88 Ben Jones C Georgia - big strong and good.

    114 Nick Foles QB AZ - big arm and athletic but raw and needs coaching.

    153 Charles Brown CB NC

    172 Ronnie Hillman RB San Diego St comparisons to young Marshall Faulk

    194 Evan Rodriguez TE Temple can catch or block

    200 Logan Harrell DT Fresno St. Run stopper.
    Chip is the man!

    So if H.Smith looks bad in 2012..do u draft another one high in 2013?

    Worthy has motor issues.
    Hightower is a MLB IMO.
    We don't need a C or OT that high.
    Kafka is better than Foles.
    Pittsburgh rarely trades up.

    Everyone has their own opinions but I'd be upset if the draft went that way. Shocked too.

    At least u made one though, some criticize and never actually do one themselves.

    Like Hightower a lot, but Pittsburgh will draft him themselves at #24, or take the BPA that fits their team. That's what they usually do. Hightower can play the SAM or Mike positions, so no problem there, so if the Eagles want Hightower, they can move down, but need to get ahead of Pitts.\I also don't want worthy - he has the motor issues. The rest of your picks are OK.

    Deano - I love Hightower, but only as a MLB.

    Hightower can play spot MLB when Ryan's sits. Ryan's is coming back from injuries. Also I'd love seeing Hightower cover big TEs.

    Pittsburgh may want a trade up for Kuechly or Brockers.

    At LOT, we have no backup and an injury-problem in Bell. Our backup OT is a ROT only. Sanders played against top-notch talent.

    Worthy will be in a rotation with Washburn riding his ass.

    Love the Harrison kid. We have no SS unless you think Coleman is a starter.

    Jones is a bull. Could be a total steal for someone.

    You gotta pick a kid named Charlie Brown.
    Chip is the man!

    Don't see Hightower as anything but a MLB. Like the rest of the draft. I think that Jones starts over Kelce, Harrison over Jarrett. Not a fan of Nick Foles that early, he is really raw.

    Don't like it. Hightower is strictly a MLB, he will get burnt trying to cover TEs. Worthy at 46 I would be fine with but I doubt he lasts that long. Another 2nd round Safety, this is getting ridiculous. Not a fan of Zebrie Sanders at all. Ben Jones I like so I wouldn't mind that. Doubt Hillman lasts till the 6th round. Like Rodriguez in the 6th.

    As a Steeler fan I'd like to know who you think we'd move up to get? We have no interest in Brockers and as much as I like Kueckly I doubt the Steelers would give up a 2nd round pick to take an ILB when they can stay put and draft Hightower. The only player I could see them willing to move up for would be Poe and it's unlikely he's still on the board at pick #1. There are other players they'd move up for, but none that would be there at the Eagles pick.
