Nnamdi Asomaghu and a 7th round pick are traded to Baltimore for a 5th round pick

NFL Draft

*The 4th overall pick is traded to Tennessee for the 9th overall pick, a 2nd round pick, a 4th round pick, and a 2014 2nd round pick

Round 1 (9 via Ten): Dion Jordan DE/OLB Oregon 6'7 241 lbs

-Some say he is the JPP of this class. Jordan is probably the biggest freak athlete in this class. He is best suited as a 4-3 DE, but he could play OLB in a 3-4 as well. At 9th overall, we get a steal as he will be the next elite pass rusher in the league with the likes of Aldon Smith, Von Miller, and JJ Watt.

*The 36th overall pick and a 4th round pick are traded to New England for the 28th overall pick

Round 1 (28 via NE): Eric Fisher OT Central Michigan 6'7 305 lbs

-Fisher reminds a lot of people of Jake Long. We move up to the late first round to get a stud offensive tackle and our LT of the future.

Round 2 (9 via Ten): Da'Rick Rogers WR Tennessee Tech 6'3 206 lbs

-Rogers is the most popular pick at receiver for Eagles fans in this draft. At 6'3, he is an extremely physical receiver who often makes highlight reel catches. He is the best WR talent in this class, in my opinion, but off the field issues allow us to get him with the 42nd pick.

Round 3 (4): Joseph Fauria TE UCLA 6'7 255 lbs

-With Fauria, we get another massive freak athlete. These athletic pass catching tight ends are running wild in the NFL and most of the contenders have their own. With Fauria, we get one finally. Fauria can line up in the slot and he gives us another red zone weapon along with Rogers and Cooper and should improve our red zone offense from a weakness to a strength.

Round 4 (9 via Ten): Leon McFadden CB San Diego State 5'10 190 lbs

-Due to the school he goes to, McFadden hasn't gotten the recognition he deserves as a CB. However, he is one of the better pure cover corners in the league. Reminds me a bit of Sam Shields. Was a former receiver and is very quick.

Round 5 (9): Kwame Geathers DT Georgia 6'6 355 lbs

-Geathers is a mountain of a person. He will make a great nose tackle in the NFL. Some say he is more fit as a 3-4 nose tackle, but he can play in either scheme. He will be an excellent addition to Rivera's defense and will make it very hard for teams to run against us.

Round 5 (26 via Bal): Blaize Foltz G TCU 6'4 310 lbs

-We get great value here in the 5th with Foltz. He is a solid guard who should take over as a starter in a year or two for Mathis.

Round 6 (4): Phillip Thomas S Fresno State 6'1 215 lbs

-We go BPA here with our last pick and Thomas falls into out lap. He is a big time playmaker at safety. He is big and physical and can play in the box as well. I think he will steal the starting FS job from Nate Allen eventually. He and Moore could give us one of the best S duos in the NFL.

Two things - Phillip Thomas is not a late round selection, and that's not the Phillip Thomas from Fresno State.

Agreed. I'm split on going OL early on.

Two things-

Thanks for the great input

and

Multiple draft sites say otherwise (in regards to him being a late rounder). I don't know what round every player is going to go in, so for some I have to look up where theyre projected to go. Multiple sites have him as a 5th-6th rounder.

If we don't sign any decent lineman in FA (which in this mock we don't) then taking a tackle in the first two rounds is pretty important. Or else we're rolling with Herremans at RT (he'd be better at G) and either Jake Scott or Fireman at RG.....Also we'd basically have the oldest starting OL in the league....so injuries could be inevitable.

Jordan needs 20-25 pounds to be a 3-4 OLB, 40-45 pounds more if he wants to be a 4-3 End. At least he seems to have the frame to do so.

Right now he has no business as an NFL 4-3 end.

Dion doesn't even play 43 DE at Oregon. CBSsportsline has him listed as a DE. This reminds me of how they had Earl Thomas listed as a CB. They do some strange things, typical for a draftnik website...

King Dunlap is as good as gone. He's been absolutely horrendous and I don't see there being any chance he sticks around between drafting a left tackle and Peters coming back. And if he did, it'd be for the vet minimum

I don't see McClain happening. With a new coach coming in, they're not going to bring in a guy who was problem out in Oakland.

Asomugha won't be traded. He's owed too much money and I think most people know he'll be cut this offseason.

I like Jordan. Obviously he needs to put on some weight but he's got unprecedented athleticism. Doesn't look that quick at first glance but you don't realize how much ground he's covering per stride. My only issue is that he's a project. He's a smart guy and a great athlete so I don't see him making too many mistakes but at the NFL level he'll need some size in order to get to the quarterback because he doesn't have too many moves right now. But he moves well in space, contains well against the run and screen, and he uses his arms very well.

Don't know too much about Fisher but I agree with a first-round necessity for a tackle.

Don't know too much about Rogers or his past

I like the Fauria pick

I think one of Maclin or Jackson will be gone this year as well, especially if we were to spend that high of a pick on a receiver and with the emergence of Riley Cooper this season.

40-45? Isn't he like 240 now? 25-30 should do fine, even with him being super tall.

Regardless Philip Thomas had 8 INT's and 6 FF's on the year, and he led his teams in tackles, he do some things well but struggle abit with inconsistency, but no way he get's past round 3.

Ick...CBS draft site sucks.

He is most likely going to play DE in the NFL....I don't see him much as an OLB in a 3-4.

He needs to add some weight, but that isn't that big of an issue. He's a freak athlete...


He doesn't need to add 40 lbs....he can add like 20 and be fine.

He'd be at 6'7 and around 270 lbs.....that's fine size for a DE especially one with the athleticism he has

If we're going with a pass rusher, I'd rather see us take Montgomery[not at 9], or Bjoern Werner; I also believe Keenan Allen would be a good selection there as well.

The only place Kwame Geather belongs[or where he fits the best, to be more correct] is at NT in a 3-4 defense.

I'd like to see us draft a safety earlier then what you have, though I believe Thomas is a 3rd/4th round pick, and also draft a SLB prospect, because Rolando McClain isn't[or hasn't] been very good.

Disagree, most NFL 43 ends are listed anywhere from 255-270 so realistically he only needs to gain about 15-20 pounds to get to that spot (listed at 243, add 15 or 20 pounds he's at 258-263, which is exactly what Jevon Kearse played at. Chandler Jones is 260 as well so if he gets to 260 he'll be fine.

To be fair, Jevon Kearse was in a 2 point stance most of his time at Florida, and went there as a safety, yet played end in the NFL and had 14.5 sacks as a rookie.

That said, if you play him the same way Von Miller is played he could have the same type of impact. He can become the next Kearse or Von Miller, he's that talented.

I want Jordan or Ansah if we're going pass rusher....they're going to be the two best out of this class.

I like Werner...but I drafted Jordan because he can play in a 4-3 or 3-4 and Rivera could end up installing a 3-4 defense down the road

I haven't seen Ansah much, so I don't really comment on him - but, I do like Werner as a pass rusher over Jordan right now. I think if we're thinking 3-4, Barkevious Mingo has to be in consideration, this dude was born to play in a 3-4 role.

If this is a hybrid style draft, then it's alright; but if we're sticking with the 4-3 it's not very good.

It is. Geathers couldn't play in a full time 4-3....he's more of a project pick anyway. If we do end up running a 3-4 all the time in like 2-3 years...he'd be our NT
