2014 Philadelphia Eagles Mock Draft Roundup | Eagles Addict

Ready to see who the Philadelphia Eagles won’t take the 2014 NFL Draft?  I’ve compiled a comprehensive list of multiple draft sites and their predictions on who the Birds will take in the upcoming lottery.

Oh, and the reason I say these are players they won’t take is three-fold:

1. Mock drafts at this point are almost always wrong as far as what players will actually be selected in the first round, much less nailing a specific player to a specific team.

2. Free agency hasn’t happened so needs and draft boards will change.

3. This is also pre-combine where players can rise or fall a little bit.

But anyway, let’s take a look at what others think the Eagles may do…

Calvin Pryor

3. WR/RB De’Anthony Thomas (Oregon)

Peter Schrager of Fox Sports has the Eagles taking S Calvin Pryor (Louisville)

Drafttek.com – Computer simulated 7-round draft based on an “analyst” who supplies team needs – (I think there must be a glitch in their software after seeing two WR’s in first three rounds)

1. WR Allen Robinson (Penn State)

2. CB Kyle Fuller (Virginia Tech)

3. WR Bruce Ellington (South Carolina)

4. QB Tajh Boyd (Clemson)

5. DE Tim Jackson (North Carolina)

5. OG Brandon Linder (Miami)

7. S Alden Darby (San Diego State)

DraftKing.com  has the Eagles taking WR Marqise Lee (USC)

NFL Draft Geek has the Eagles taking S Ha’Sean Clinton-Dix (Alabama) in Round 1 and OLB Kyle Van Noy (BYU) in Round 2.

Football’s Future has the Eagles taking S Calvin Pryor

Ourlads.com has the Eagles taking S Ha’Sean Clinton-Dix

NFLDraftCountdown.com has the Eagles taking CB Justin Gilbert (Oklahoma State)

NFL.com has four analysts with a one-round mock.  Two have the Eagles taking S Calvin Pryor and the other two have them taking CB Darqueze Dennard.

That’s 14 draft sites with a total of 18 individuals making predictions.  As you can see, safety, corner and wide receiver are the predominant positions that mock drafters foresee for the Eagles.

Calvin Pryor is the winner with six people predicting him followed by Darqueze Dennard with four.  Therefore, don’t expect the Eagles to draft either one of them!

At this point, it’s hard not to mock a safety to the Eagles, it’s their biggest need.  However, I don’t quite get all the cornerback predictions.  Sure, the Eagles could use depth there but I think Cary Williams and Bradley Fletcher will both be back and starting in 2014.

I’m surprised by the lack of OLB predictions because that is their second biggest need.  But, that could have more to do with where the Eagles are picking in Round 1.  Right now there may not be good value at that position at that spot, though that could change over the next 2-3 months

As far as the Eagles taking a wide receiver in Round 1, I can see that only if Jeremy Maclin doesn’t return.  Even if they re-sign Riley Cooper (but not Maclin), I can still see that.  If Maclin re-signs, I think the WR position comes off their first round board unless someone like Mike Evans is amazingly there.

As far as the above predictions in general, I can’t decide if I like NFL Draft Geek’s two picks or SBNation’s three picks the best.  At this point, I’d be happy with either.

    The Eagles will take Marquise Lee or Mike Evans with their first pick.The second pick will be Purifoy,third round will be Trent Murphy.I believe the Eagles will sign two safety’s a kicker and bououtside linebacker.One safety will be Jarious Byrd and the other Taylor Mays.Shocker but Brian Orakpo will be an Eagle.They will resign Maclin to a short term deal.Cuts will be Brandon Graham, P chung, Trent Cole,J Casey.That should free up more money for other fill in free agents.That should propel the Eagles to the next level.

    • That would be a pretty killer haul Chris! But, I doubt Orakpo leaves Washington and Byrd could get tagged again. Plus, with all the hinting by Roseman that the Eagles won’t be overspending in FA, it would seem to be a slim to none chance that they’d sign both of those high dollar guys.

  2. Chris says:

    Chris Scott is dreaming… no way does orakpo leave washington, and I cant imagine philly would give byrd the money he’s going to want theres to many other needs. I’d be ok with resigning nate allen and going after mike mitchell from the panthers, he’d be cheap and he had a really good season. I wouldnt call nate allen a stud but he had a pretty solid season this year and he wouldnt command a whole lot in FA. Obviously kicker is a weakness that graham gano could fill for us, his touchback percentage is almost double henereys. Resign Maclin over cooper, people seem to get down on him because he’s yet to break 1000 yards in a season but hes been pretty close and has had way more consistent numbers than cooper. I wouldnt mind having cooper back but not for a ridiculous price. I also think its pretty obvious we should sign Donnie Jones long term, he had a hell of a season. With the draft I would like to see olb or wr addressed in the first round. Someone like kelvin benjamin or mike evans would create a ridiculous offensive line up … McCoy, DeSean,Maclin, Benjamin, Ertz… Chip would have a field day with the matchups he could have. I also wouldnt mind trying to grab jason worilds in FA as well as a back up corner. I like the louchiez purifoy in the 2nd pick, and in the 3rd-4th I think its obvious d’anthony thomas has to be at least considered. His special team potential alone is worth the pick but getting him on the field with the players I mentioned above… the amount of speed on offense would be absurd

    No way I let t cole slide..we need to use james casey..way under utilized in this offense..I do like nate..ha’sean would be a dream but ill take tj ward free agency and lamarcus joyner 2nd rd and we’re great in secondary all of a sudden..:)
