Between now and the draft, our draft pundits Ron Burke, Chris Steuber, Jared Sherman and Geoff Mosher will provide their latest Eagles mock drafts. They will make selections for each of the Eagles' six picks, and when they update their selections, their new mocks will be posted.
First round (22nd overall) - Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech
If Anthony Barr falls to 22, he’s the guy, but he’s probably not getting here. So it’s down to two players: wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin or Fuller. Given the depth at receiver in the draft, the Eagles can hold off there and go with the best available defensive player who fits their scheme.
Of all the corners, Fuller has the most traits Chip Kelly prefers. He’s got nice length for the position, can tackle, ran a 4.49 at the NFL Combine and was a team captain at Tech. He recently moved into Mike Mayock’s No. 1 ranking among corners, which is fairly indicative of Fuller’s rising stock.
Eagles Mock 2.0: Kony Early, DE, Missouri
Eagles Mock 1.0: Ryan Shazier, LB, Ohio State
Second round (54th overall) - Kyle Van Noy, OLB, Brigham Young
After missing out on Barr, the Eagles can find a pass rusher with upside in Van Noy, an impact outside linebacker for the Cougars that had 39 ½ tackles for a loss and 20 sacks over his final two years.
Van Noy is fast for his size and can run with tight ends, which means he can also play inside linebacker. He might not start right away, but he gives the Eagles another pass-rushing option in the nickel.
Eagles Mock 2.0: Keith McGill, CB/S, Utah
Eagles Mock 1.0: McGill
Third round (86th overall) - Will Clarke, DE, West Virginia
In Kelly’s quest to get more versatile players, Clarke fits the bill. The Pittsburgh native is a country-strong defensive end with great length and size and would bring some added toughness to the Eagles’ D-line.
Clarke played end and tackle for the Mountaineers, which Kelly likes from his down linemen, and the Eagles reportedly worked him out as a linebacker at his pro day. If the Eagles think Clarke can make an impact throughout the front seven, on the line and at linebacker, they’ll get him on the field.
Eagles Mock 2.0: Terrance Brooks, S, Florida State
Eagles Mock 1.0: Jarred Abbrederis, WR, Wisconsin
Fourth round (122nd overall) - Jarred Abbrederis, WR, Wisconsin
Abbrederis went to the Eagles here in my last mock and he stays. He’ll easily be the sleeper receiver of this draft. Go back and watch tape of Wisconsin. You’ll see a wideout who went over 1,000 yards and caught seven touchdowns but easily could have had more if the Badgers had better QB play.
Abbrederis has an excellent feel for getting behind coverages and has tremendous hands. He won’t replace DeSean Jackson’s speed or production, but he’ll fit in just fine with Jeremy Maclin, Riley Cooper and Zach Ertz.
Eagles Mock 2.0: Jarred Abbrederis, WR, Wisconsin
Eagles Mock 1.0: Josh Mauro, DE, Stanford
Fifth round (162nd overall) - Aaron Colvin, CB, Oklahoma
This is another repeat pick. Colvin would have been a second-rounder at worst if he hadn’t ripped up his ACL at the Senior Bowl. Getting him here would be a steal, especially since the Eagles are deep enough at corner to wait for Colvin to be 100 percent.
When ready, he’ll give the Eagles a tough, physical corner who should be ready to push for a starting job by 2015.
Eagles Mock 2.0: Colvin
Eagles Mock 1.0: Colvin
Seventh round (237th overall) - Devin Street, WR, Pittsburgh
Remember, the Eagles also released Jason Avant. They need more than just one wideout. Street lacks top-end speed but you can’t knock his production. He started for the past three seasons and left as the school’s all-time leader with 202 receptions.
Street isn’t a burner, but he’s a good downfield blocker who makes good adjustments to catch errant passes and does much of his damage underneath, which makes him a logical replacement for Avant.
Eagles Mock 2.0: John Urschel, G, Penn State
Eagles Mock 1.0: Tajh Boyd, QB, Clemson
