Draft Experts Post-Combine Eagles Mock Draft 1.0

Updated: Apr 24, 2019

Now that the NFL combine is officially over, mock draft season is in full swing. NFL Draft experts, or so they say, have been sharing their opinions on who teams will draft come April 25th. With the draft a bit shorter than two months away, and team needs already apparent, we are honing in on what each team may do come draft night; however as always - take these "expert" opinions with a grain of salt.

(Post Combine) Full Mock Here

Alabama: Josh Jacobs | RB | 5'10 216 lbs

Jeremiah believes that this would be a dream scenario for the Eagles, given that Jacobs is the best RB in the draft. It's tough to disagree with that sentiment, because Jacobs has shown on film and at the combine that he is NFL ready.

Mississippi State: Jeffrey Simmons | DT | 6'2 295 lbs

A surprising pick for Schrager here, as news has been out for weeks now that Simmons tore his ACL in pre-draft workouts. Schrager still likes Simmons as a first round talent and enough to have the Eagles pass up on other immediate needs at RB and WR.

Bucky Brooks Analyst with NFL Network

Clemson: Dexter Lawrence | DT | 6'4 351 lbs

Dexter Lawrence is a massive human. Brooks believes that Lawrence can be the rugged defensive tackle to stuff runs between the guards, and collapse the pocket with his bull rush in passing situations.

Matt Miller with Bleacher Report

Oklahoma: Marquise "Hollywood" Brown | WR | 5'10 170 lbs

(Post Combine) Full Mock Here

Miller believes that Brown, not AJ Brown but Marquise Brown, would be WR1 in this years draft if not for his lisfrank injury. If "Hollywood" Brown competed in the combine drills, he would without a doubt have been the talk of the town in Indy. A fast, compact burner with great route running abilities - Brown is not just a one trick pony.

(Post Combine) Full Mock Here

Alabama: Josh Jacobs | RB | 5'10 216 lbs

Another mock draft, another selection of Jacobs to the Eagles. Wilson agrees that Jacobs is the best runner in the country and can provide a weapon for Wentz out of the backfield. Wilson also brings up the fact that Jacobs runs angry, and is a natural pass catcher out of the backfield. This proves to be a perfect fit in the Eagles scheme.

Tom Fornelli CBS Sports Writer with CBS Sports

(Post Combine) Full Mock Here

Louisiana Tech: Jaylon Ferguson | EDGE | 6'5 262 lbs

Tom must be a Dallas fan. Tom must not understand that Chip Kelly has moved back to the NCAA. Tom must be blind to the fact that the Eagles just locked up a DE for another 3 years to a decent sized contract. Alright, enough about Tom. While the Eagles did just lock BG up to a multi-year deal, it isn't far fetched to imagine that the team does draft a defensive lineman. However, with other guys on the board like Christian Wilkins, Dexter Lawrence and Jeffrey Simmons, the Eagles aren't going to take a shot on a guy that wasn't even invited to the combine. Thank you, next.

(Post Combine) Full Mock Here

Georgia: Deandre Baker | CB | 5'11 185 lbs

USA Today contests that while Josh Jacobs is still on the board (surrendering that this will probably be the pick) the running back class is too deep to pass on a ball hawk like Baker. While Baker is a battle tested ball hawk, the Eagles have guys like Jalen Mills and Sidney Jones coming back from injury to go along with the players who stepped up down the stretch last season in Cre'von LeBlanc, Avonte Maddox and Sul Douglas. However, do not be surprise to hear Baker's name called at 25.
