    Final Eagles Mock draft...

    Trade #1 - Eagles trade OT/G Todd Herremans, #2 (54) & conditional '2015 1st or 2nd to Miami Dolphins for: OLB Dion Jordan. Agree to deal but dont announce until after both Eagles & Dolphins make their 1st round selections. :)

    Trade #2 - Eagles trade down with New England Patriots from pick 1-22 to 1-29. Receive 3-93. Select WR/TE hybrid: Kelvin Benjamin.

    Trade #3 - Eagles trade 3-93 for (2) 4th rd. picks in 2014.

    Trade #4 - Eagles trade RB Bryce Brown for 5th rd. pick. The dude wants to play and I dont see it in Chips O. Could be a stud in the right O.

    Graham will probably have to be cut or kept on as a backup. Cant see the trade value.


    (via trade) OLB - Dion Jordan - Fills top need with a versatile long player that Chip knows well. Dolphins could hold onto him but why wait. Get what you can now. His trade value in the wrong system as a backup will only decrease. They need OL help and the extra picks will help out.
    1. - WR - Kelvin Benjamin - FSU - This dude will play slot. Call him WR or TE. Dont matter. He'll be a stud. Will take our O to the next level. Very few here want him now but he'll be a fan favorite by the end of year 1. Id pick him at 15 and not think twice. Getting him & two extra 4th rounders would be like stealing.
    3. - ILB - Jordan Tripp - Montana - Athletic ILB who will takeover for Ryans in 2015. In the meantime he'll play nickle.
    4. - CB - Dontae Johnson - NC St. - Replaces Cary Williams in 2015. Could be a steal. 5th CB & 4th S in '14.
    4. - OG/T - Laurent Duvernay-Tardif - McGill - Backup swing guy in '14. Could replace Mathis as soon as next year.
    4. - RB - Charles Sims - W.Va. - Shady Ins. 24 so he'll probably drop a bit. Steal at this point in draft.
    5. - WR - Josh Huff - Oregon - 4th WR. Knows Chips O and will play ST. Could become #3 if Maclin bolts.
    5. - NT - Deandre Coleman - Cal or Khyri Thornton - S.Miss. - Backup for Logan. Also allows Bennie to move around a bit more.
    7. - TE - Blake Annen - Cincinnati - Flyer on an athletic HBack. Could replace Casey in '15. 4th TE in 2014.

    Got 5 eventual starters & 4 key reserves. Didnt draft a Safety early because Im high on Earl Wolff as a long term starter. After the early rounds, I saw better value at other positions.

    Tobin or Barbre replaces Herremans in the starting lineup for '14.

    UDFA Targets
    WR - John Brown - Pittsburg State
    OG - Trey Hopkins - Texas
    OG/C - Wesley Johnson - Vanderbilt
    OG/T - Bryce Quigley - San Diego State
    OG/T - Kevin Pamphile - Purdue
    S - Maurice Alexander - Utah State

    Benjamin scares me. I am not convinced his game translates to the NFL

    Love the Tardif pick.
    Tripp, Huff and Johnson...OK

    Dont be scared. Kelvin Benjamin is gonna be a straight up nightmare for opposing teams. Whether he lines up as a traditional WR or a hybrid TE. Its makes no difference. He'll be a mismatch nighmare and will never have to leave the field due to his blocking skills & redzone prowess.

    Chips O will always do well between the 20s. THats almost a gurantee. What we need is a guy who can go deep and win..and be studly in the redzone. Imagine a Redzone O with Shady, Benjamin, Ertz, Maclin & Cooper. Cant be stopped.

    Not scared, but just don't like Benjamin. He's big, but slow. No thanks. He would be the guy that I throw the remote at! Sorry.

    They need help on their OL. He could play RT or OG. Plus Lazor knows him.

    Either way, here is my final Round 1 Mock Draft..

    01 - * Clev. From Houston - QB - Johnny Manziel - Browns get nervous the Jags or Rams take Manziel before they can.
    02 - St. Louis - DE - Jadeveon Clowney - Heir apparent to C.Long. True object of their desire imo.
    03 - Jacksonville - OLB - Khalil Mack - Pass rusher badly needed. Tough choice between Mack & Watkins.
    04 - * Houston from Cleveland - QB - Blake Bortles - The QB they want.
    05 - Oakland - WR - Sammy Watkins - Get lucky as sh!t that Clev & Hous are desperate for QBs.
    06 - Atlanta - OT - Greg Robinson - Best player left at need pos.
    07 - Tampa Bay - WR - Mike Evans - Probably prefer a pass rusher or QB but go BPA.
    08 - * St. Louis from Minnesota - OT - Jake Matthews - Fisher knows this kid well.
    09 - * Chicago from Buffalo - S - Hasean Clinton-Dix - Badly need a stud Safety. Tough choice between HaHa & Donald.
    10 - Detroit - CB - Justin Gilbert - Press CB for new D.

    11 - Tennessee - OLB - Anthony Barr - Pass rusher for new 34 D.
    12 - New York Giants - OT - Taylor Lewan - Character issues but NYG had him in.
    13 - * Miami from Minnesota from St. Louis - WR - Odell Beckham - Wallace on notice. Jordan trade to Philly gives them ammunition to do this.
    14 - * Buffalo from Chicago - TE - Eric Ebron - Character issues but Buffalo likes him.
    15 - Pittsburgh - CB - Kyle Fuller - Could go a number of directions. Including trade down.
    16 - Dallas - DT - Aaron Donald - Got lucky he fell to them.
    17 - Baltimore - ILB - C.J. Mosley - Again. Got lucky this dude slid.
    18 - New York Jets - WR - Brandin Cooks - Speed demon for Vick, Geno or new QB in '15.
    19 - * Minnesota from Miami - DE - Kony Ealy - Two trade downs for a guy that fits scheme/need.
    20 - * San Diego from Arizona - CB - Bradley Roby - Character concerns but very talented.

    21 - Green Bay - S - Calvin Pryor - Need another Safety.
    22 - * New England from Philadelphia - DT - Stephon Tuitt - Pats get heir to Wilfork.
    23 - Kansas City - OG - Zack Martin - Andy lucky to get a plug & play G.
    24 - Cincinnati - CB - Darqueze Dennard - Could use another CB.
    25 - * Arizona from San Diego - DT - RaShede Hageman - Character issues. Aging DL.
    26 - Cleveland - ILB - Ryan Shazier - Speedy starter day 1.
    27 - New Orleans - OLB - Demarcus Lawrence - Rumored to be high on this guy.
    28 - Carolina - WR - Marqise Lee - Safe pick for team that likes to play it safe.
    29 - * Philly from New England - WR - Kelvin Benjamin - BOOM! TVs all over Philly get smashed. lol.
    30 - San Francisco - DT - Timmy Jernigan - Tried to trade up. Couldnt. BPA
    31 - * Tampa Bay from Denver - QB - Teddy Bridgewater - Want a new QB.
    32 - Seattle - OT - JaWuan James - Plug & play starter day 1.

    I don't think there's much of a chance that Martin drops to 23.

    He slid a bit in my last mock but there are always players that slide come draft day. For one reason or another.

    Not trying to be harsh but I hate the Jordan trade..too steep. Also hate Kelvin Benjamin.

    The Philly Triangle - 1 focal point of potential stability that has continued to solidify itself through the season showing its ability to anchor the foundation. 1 leading force to shape the future. 1 collector to supply the pieces. Could the Green/Silver lining return to the triangle?...stay tuned to this continuing saga.

    If the Draft were to fall in a like order, I would definitely trade up with Minnesota to get Pryor. The Steelers are not going to rip me again this year.
