Kinda just threw this together today. Didn't check any trade values or salary cap #'s but I'm pretty sure everything should be okay.

Coaching Staff

HC Gus Bradley

The Monte Kiffin disciple is one of the best defensive minds in all of football right now. He comes extremely highly recommended by both Kiffin and Pete Carroll. He will implement his 4-3 defense here so we don't have to worry about switching our personnel.

OC Mike Mularky

Mularky is a great offensive coordinator. He values a very balanced approach and is pretty good at finding unique ways to get the ball in the hands of his playmakers.

DC Todd Wash

Everyone is quick to pin Ken Norton as the guy that Bradley would pry away from Seattle to be his D-Coordinator. However, his right hand man has always been Todd Wash. Their relationship dates back to their days together in Tampa Bay. Once Bradley got the gig in Seattle, guess who followed him there? Guess who is going to follow him here?

Cuts/Let Walk
(Don't kill me if I forgot some guys)

Vick
DRC
Mattress
Nnamdi
Allen
Tapp
Landri
Tennant
Menkins
Sims
Kopa
Reynolds
Vandervelve
McBriar
Chaney
Matthews
Dunlap
Dixon
Moore

Resigned

Jordan
Anderson
Bossman
Scott

Restructure

Peters
Patterson

Free Agents


DT Alan Branch 4 years
Bradley convinces Branch to join him here in Philly to be our starting NT. Branch will bring some veteran leadership to the D-Line group as well as some much needed experience in Bradley's system. He also is a great locker room guy

QB Matt Moore 3 years
We need a solid veteran back up. The market is thin so we quickly jump on Moore

OT Will Svitek 1 year
Svitek comes over after having worked with Mularkey for a few years in Atlanta. He will be our primary back up OT.

OG Antoine Caldwell 3 years
OL depth is needed across the board. We learned our lesson last off season and will not make the same mistake twice.

OLB Leroy Hill 2 years
Solid veteran that has experience in Bradley's system and can start at OLB.

CB/FS Marcus Trufant 2 years
We need secondary help desperately. Although Trufant has been a CB, he is getting up there in age and will make the switch to FS a la Ronde Barber. Once again, he brings a solid veteran presence to the team with some experience under Bradley

SS Jim Leonhard 1 year
Another solid veteran reserve with starting experience to help bolster our depth in the secondary.

MLB Barrett Ruud 1 year
We need a true back up MLB. Ruud's best seasons came when Bradley was the linebackers coach in Tampa. The comfort level is there on both sides.

OC Todd McClure 1 year
McClure has played his entire career in Atlanta. His contract expires this season and instead of re-upping him, Atlanta decides to go in a different direction to get younger. McClure comes over to back up Kelce and is also an insurance plan if Kelce doesn't return to form.


Trades

Eagles trade DT Cullen Jenkins to KC for their 5th round pick.
KC loses Glenn Dorsey in FA and they need to replace him.

Eagles trade their 1st round pick to BUF for their 1st and 2nd round pick. Buffalo falls in love with Tyler Wilson follow his post combine hype train and trades up to grab him before anyone else does.

2013 NFL Draft

1(BUF) Johnthan Banks CB Miss St

The first step in overhauling the secondary starts here. Banks is a big cover corner, just the kind of guy Bradley likes on the outside.

2 Xavier Rhodes CB Florida St

Rhodes is another big cover corner that can bring some physicality to the CB position.

2 (BUF) Barrett Jones C/OG/OT Alabama

Jones is the most versatile OL in the class. We are in desperate need for help on the OL but the problem is we don't know exactly where we are going to need help other than at RG. Jones will be penciled in as the starter at RG from day 1. However, depending on what happens with the returns of Kelce, Herremans, and Peters, he could be shifted around a bit.

3 TJ McDonald S USC

McDonald is a big, physical, and intimidating safety. He is excellent in run support and can really lay the wood. He is also fairly underrated in coverage. He has the ability to play the deep middle.

4 Gerald Hodges OLB Penn St

Hodges was the leader of the Penn St defense last year. He is a very solid LB that I think with the proper coaching can turn into a solid starter for us for the next 8-10 years

5(KC) Travis Kelce, TE Cinncinatti

Kelce has great size and good athleticism for a TE. If he is anything like his brother in regards to work ethic and attitude, we are going to love him.

5 Kyle Long OT Oregon

Long is a nice developmental project at RT and possibly even LT.

6 Marcus Davis WR Virginia Tech

All of the physical tools are there. Can he translate that to on the field success?

7 Ryan Allen, P, Louisiana Tech

The best punter in college football last year.

7 (IND)(Foku trade) John Boyett S Oregon

A very solid safety prospect who missed all of last year due to injury. Prior to last year, Boyett lead the Ducks entire defense in tackles in both the 2011 and 2010 season. Oregon has produced some solid safety prospects over the past few years including: Jairus Byrd, TJ Ward, and Patrick Chung. Boyett isn't on their level but I think he will turn into a nice back up and special teams player for us.

Final 53 Man Roster

QB Foles, Moore, Edwards
RB McCoy, Brown, Lewis
FB Havili
WR Jackson, Davis
WR Maclin, Cooper
Slot Avant, Johnson
TE Celek, Kelce
LT Peters, Svitek
LG Mathis, Caldwell
C Kelce, McClure
RG Jones, Scott
RT Herremans, Long
LE Graham, Hunt
DT Cox, Thorton
NT Branch, Patterson
RE Cole, Curry
SLB Hill, Hodges
MLB Ryans, Ruud
WLB Kendricks, Jordan
CB Banks, Marsh, Hughes
CB Rhodes, Boykin
FS Trufant, Coleman, Boyett
SS McDonald, Leonhard

K Henery
P Allen
LS Dorenboss

Really like everything except........letting DRC go. We need DRC to stick around because he had no safety help last year and was by far the Eagles best corner.

So 3 rookies in the secondary with Marcus Trufant at FS? Uhm, hell no.

Don't be so quick to judge... it can't be worse then last year. This is a solid draft and if these things happen I would be quite happy. That being said, it seems unlikely.. but what Mock isn't.

Yeah we would lose a lot of games next year with that secondary but like AZ said how much worse could it get.

This doesn't even say anything, jokes on you.

I'm Not really a fan of FA. Draft is too Secondary heavy. And Mularkey runs a very conservative Offense.

We did it with Lito, Lewis, and Brown. Seattle did it with Thomas, Sherman, and Chancellor.

Either way, we are going to be a bad to mediocre team next year. Theres no way to fix everything at once.

This isn't Madden, we can't sign all the big name FA's. Plus I think we learned our lesson last time trying to do that. Most of the FA's in this mock have played under the coaches before and are more like a quick patch for positions we couldn't address in a more long term approach this offseason. It's going to take 2-3 years minimum to build this team back up, it's foolish and unrealistic to think otherwise.

I agree with this. Were going to stink for a year or two. I don't mind a plan that will take a few years to get us back on track.

Shepard & Brown had 1 1/2 to 2 years to develop behind Vincent\Taylor\Harris before they were really counted on as full time starters. Michael Lewis didn't even start until the last 4 games as our rookie starter. They also had a secondary that had Dawkins in his prime, not a 32 year old Trufant switching positions to a spot he's never played before.

There is no correlation at all.

We had the luxury to let them sit. Now we aren't so fortunate. Tons of rookies start in the secondary throughout the league every year. We are a bad team and are going to be a bad team until we can build this thing back up. There is going to be a lot of turn-over on he roster, as there should be.

We can always take the FA route and resign DRC, then throw a bunch of money at Byrd and Goldson. These guys were both 2nd team all pros, it will solve all of our problems and we will win the superbowl. Might as well pick up Jake Long and Dwayne Bowe too, we really need a stud on OL and a beast WR. We could do that but it's completely unrealistic. We realistically would be lucky to snag 1 big name guy.

Guys, after the dream team debacle do you really think that we are going to try to buy our team again? C'mon man.

Our secondary is awful. We have no safeties, Nnamdi is over paid and under performs, and DRC wants big $ to go along with his cancerous work ethic and poor attitude in the locker room. Guy like that are a prime example of what is wrong with this team right now.

Look, it's your mock, so you can release\sign\draft whoever you see fit. Just don't try to defend it with incorrect facts. No one was disputing your strategy to go DB-heavy early in the draft. In fact, I actually agree with that strategy. The problem is that you will have a starting secondary that has exactly ZERO combined snaps at their respective starting positions in the NFL. Coupled with the fact that you have Curtis Marsh, & Brandon Hughes as the back-ups is complete and total DB-suicide for at least an entire season. If one of those rookie CBs doesn't play well, or gets injured, you unnecessarily risk setting this team back much longer than 1 season. That's all.

So basically if one of them gets hurt or doesn't play to potential (which IS very likely) we end up with a secondary very similar to what we had this year at least from a statistical/performance perspective. Honestly, I'd be ecstatic if 2 of the guys in the secondary lived up to their potential. I'm okay with that. We have to start out somewhere and it's not hard to find deficiencies on bad teams with poor talent.

Yes Trufant is a major patch job (as are a lot of the FA's in this mock) that can spring a leak at any second. If he falters at FS, he can slide back to CB and hopefully we could get adequate play from Leonhard or god forbid Coleman. A lot of this was trying to get solid veteran experience/leadership who are familiar with the coaches and scheme into the locker room. To me, Trufant is more valuable to the team in the locker room and on the practice field than actually in a game. If we can accomplish this, I think it would only make the transition that much easier. We have a good amount of money tied up in long term contracts right now and I don't think we need to add to that yet by over spending in FA again. I think the best way to go is to get rid of all of the distractions and cancers on the team, build through the draft, and sign these "patch work" type of FA's to help hold us over. Is it going to be pretty? I highly doubt it.
