If you're an Eagles fan looking towards the 2012 draft, here's who you should be watching this Saturday
Jeff Demps, RB, Florida, No. 28
Florida vs Georgia (CBS3:30 p.m.)
Long gone are the days the Birds rolled with stiffs like Charles Johnson, Torrance Small and Freddie Mitchell. They were plodding receivers compared to the track stars the Birds like to put on display every week now. It's obvious the Eagles love speed -- both on offense and defense -- and what better way to continue feeding that obsession than drafting a real-life sprinter. Demps is a tiny (5-7, 191) running back who has one defining attribute -- speed. The guy can fly, and while the Birds are seemingly set at RB right now with Lesean McCoy and Dion Lewis, Demps might be a dangerous asset to have on special teams. Outside of DeSean Jackson, the Eagles haven't had a real threat in the return game since Brian Mitchell left, and Demps' speed might play well on kick returns. Demps probably won't be an early round selection because he still must improve as a football player, but that speed is too tempting to pass on altogether. If the Eagles can grab him in the last two rounds, it'd be figuratively and literally a flyer.
Devon Still, DT, Penn State, No. 71
Illinois vs Penn State (ABC3:30 p.m.)
The Eagles gravitate towards smaller, penetrating DTs, and they could do a lot worse than Still. While not exactly small (6-5 14, 307), Still isn't much against the run. His lower body strength doesn't seem to be where it needs to be, and he just doesn't look like he wants to fight off other 300-pounders. What he can do though is shoot gaps and use his long arms to make tackles in the backfield. Some mock drafts have Still going in the first round. I just don't see it. But if he's still on the board when the Eagles make their second pick in the second round, Still would be a nice addition.
Markelle Martin, FS, Oklahoma State, No. 10
Baylor vs Oklahoma State (ESPN23:30 p.m.)
Martin is an energetic leader on the field who you can tell just loves playing. Like many players these days, Martin (6-1, 202) is more of a hitter than a tackler. But when he hits you remember it. He covers a lot of ground at the back end of the secondary. Would be a nice pick in the second round.
