IrishDawg's Collab. Mock draft: Eagles selections

Posted on: April 15, 2010 7:15 pm
 
1. Dez Bryant WR OK St.- Ok, so this pick is definitely not a need pick but can easily be summed up as a BPA choice. When my big board in round 1 fell apart and no viable trade was in place I decided to add the best WR in this years draft. He's big and strong with return ability and he's a nightmare after he catches the ball. Add him to the super explosive DeSean Jackson and last year's #1 Jeremy Maclin this is easily one of the most promising WR corps in the league. You're welcome, Kevin Kolb.

2. Brandon Ghee CB Wake Forest- After missing out on the CB of my choice in round 1 I get lucky and I get a break with Brandon Ghee. A physical CB with good size and speed. His technique will need to be refined, but his upside is tremendous and he fits what the Eagles want to do. He'll help ease the loss of Sheldon Brown and could push Joselio Hanson and Ellis Hobbs for valuable playing time in 2010.

3a. A.J. Edds OLB Iowa- Maybe a bit early for this pick, but A.J. Edds is easily the best pure SAM LB in this draft. As a former TE, he runs well and understands movements of offensive players while in pass defense, leading to 5 INT's this season. He's a tough Iowa kid who uses discipline and instincts as much as athleticism to make plays.

3b. Major Wright FS Florida- FS play for the Eagles last year was worse than horrible. What's a term for worse than terrible? I got one, "Macho Harris". The Macho project at FS was a terrible mistake by the coaching staff and a real FS needs to be added at some point. Major Wright was a player slightly overlooked in the Gators star-studded D, but he's a fast safety with good size and he's solid in his fundamentals. Like Brandon Ghee, if he plays up to potential and is a quick learner he could push for early PT.

4a. Dekoda Watson OLB Florida State- Some guys will describe him as a "workout warrior" but he also played well on the field. He had double digit TFL to go with 6.5 sacks so you know he can get to the QB. Oh yea, and on the workout warrior note, he ran a 4.5 at the combine weighing 240 lbs and then ran a 4.40 at the FSU pro day. Fast? Yes, and he also put up a ridiculous 40" vertical. He's more athletic than current WILL Akeem Jordan, but he'll need time to learn to play within Sean McDermott's system.

4b. Jermaine Cunningham DE Florida- Ok, that's 3 straight players from the state of Florida but they all presented great value. Jermaine Cunningham isn't a huge DE, but at 6'3 265 he's athletic and more importantly he consistently plays hard. He'll be a situational pass rusher until he can bulk up just a little bit and play opposite Trent Cole.

5. Sergio Render G Virgnia Tech- With Shawn Andrews finally gone, his brother Stacy not living up to expectations and Jamaal Jackson questionable to start the year the offensive line is in flux. Sergio Render is a strong player with a background as a mauling run blocker and he would add insurance and value this late in the draft. His pass blocking will need refinement, but Juan Castillo is one of the best in the biz and he can work with this kid.

6. Patrick Stoudamire CB Western Illinois- A small school prospect with a TON of upside. He was virtually never thrown at during his senior year because no one got open against him. At 5'11 205 lbs he's got good size and he runs well to boot. He'll be making a major jump in competition so it'll be interesting to see how his athleticism translates. As most small school guys he'll take time to develop, but in 3 years could be a great 1-2 combo with Brandon Ghee.

7a. Lonyae Miller RB Fresno State- I was shocked Miller was available here, because he's a great athlete who sat behind an even better RB in Ryan Mathews. At 220 lbs Milller runs a 4.49 at the combine, was strong enough to bench 225 lbs 26 times and caught the ball really well. That fits the mold of a player the Eagles need. Mike Bell will be a 1 year stop gap until Miller surprises people and contributes significantly in 2011.

7b. Jeremy Boone P Penn State- Sav Rocca stinks. Enough said.

Miami's draft as it look's now.

1st:   NT Dan Williams, from Tennessee

Fins re-sign suspended NT Ferguson: Nose tackle  from day one.  He is a strong player who has the speed to come off the end, he does not just have a inside move, but has one hell of a bull-rush to get after the QB.


Comp. Pick:   ? - I Know But You Don't

, even though he faces a suspension for the first eight games of this season. The Dolphins announced the signing Tuesday in a news release that made no reference to Ferguson's suspension last week for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances. At 35, Ferguson improves the Dolphins' roster depth, but they remain in the market for a starter at the position. Ferguson was sidelined by a season-ending quadriceps injury in November that required surgery and has contemplated retirement.

Not only did you grab good players in positions of need, but you also got great value in every pick. Bryant, Ghee, Edds, Wright, and Watson all getting drafted by the same team is highway robbery. Idk how you pulled it off bishop, but great draft.
