Ranking of Eagles draft goals based on tension level

For this article, I just have a ton of mock drafts and tried to write down all the players the Eagles have selected or swapped to select. Then I ranked them based on what I would like to see on Thursday night. I enjoyed this exercise and hopefully you will find it useful too! Of course, this does not include all the players, but it does include all that I think the Eagles have a chance at, based on all the taunts.

Level 1 – Swap / how on earth did we get him?

Kyle Hamilton, Vor Frue: Perhaps the best player in the entire class, Hamilton is 6’4, but runs like a minor safety and has great instincts. He will bring a playmaking element and can fly around the court, and the safety position is becoming more and more important in the modern NFL. I would absolutely love to see Hamilton somehow end up at the Eagles.

CB Derek Stingley, LSU: Stingley has been much debated due to some ‘lazy’ band over the last 2 years and injury issues … but the band is excellent. He has all the physical and athletic traits that a high-level outside cornerback needs. He is best in man coverage, especially press coverage, and also has elite ball skills. He is not so good in off cover or in zone at this point where he may have some issues with his technique but he has the athletic ability to be able to handle it all.

EDGE Jermaine Johnson, Florida State: Johnson projects as a good starter who could potentially become an excellent starter. Johnson has excellent size and length and understands how to get to the quarterback with elite hand use. I’m a little worried about the average departure. I think he is a clear 3-down starter who can also play the run.

Level 2 – This would make me very excited

DT Jordan Davis, Georgia: Davis is probably the most fascinating player in the entire draft class. I have to be completely honest, I do not really know how to assess him given his lack of snaps and it’s hard to project his future. He looks like an elite race defender with the athletic ability to also be a good passing rusher. I would absolutely love that the Eagles took a chance on Davis and I would always take a shot at athletic freaks because the upside is huge.

LB Devin Lloyd, Utah: Lloyd clearly looks like the best linebacker in this class, but is he a choice in the middle of 1. worth worth round? I think the Eagles have ignored this position for too long and the Eagles need some serious talent on the position and I think Lloyd is the one linebacker who is a mid-1. worth. He looks a lot, is very athletic and will bring physical to a defense. The missed tackles are a concern, but I think you should hope you can train it out of him.

WR Treylon Burks, Arkansas: Burks are some of the funniest I’ve had to see a customer in a while. His film is incredible and the potential is incredibly high. He has a freakish combination of size and speed and can line up anywhere on the court. He can win in the short to intermediate games on over-routes, where he can use his size to box out defenders, but he excels on deeper routes, where corners have no chance if he gets a step on them. Some big guys have slow feet, but Burks does not. He quickly enters his route with a very explosive first few steps and can easily run in turns. He also has good hands and is a huge threat in the red zone. Is he the finished article? No. Does he need to understand the nuances of scheduled driving better? Yes. But he can learn it, and you simply can not learn the explosive features he has.

WR Jameson Williams, Alabama: Williams is one of the most explosive recipients I have studied the last few years. He will instantly dominate on vertical routes like overs, posts and corner kicks and will line up insane numbers with an elite quarterback. He is not only a one trick pony and is very good at getting back to the ball and also finding soft spots against zone coverage. He will need to improve his playing strength to be able to compete against more physical cornerbacks, and he has a few too many concentration drops, but he should be an instant playmaker in the league.

CB Trent McDuffie, Washington: McDuffie is a top-cornerback prospect better suited to a zone system that will not ask him to play pressman on a consistent basis. He showed he can play man but is best in off-coverage and zone where he can explode against football. He is an excellent athlete, a fluid movement and shows a great understanding of situational football. He gets too physical with receivers on the outside due to his lack of height and his lack of ball production is worrying, especially as teams can target him with larger receivers on spring balls on the outside.

CB Andrew Booth, Clemson: Booth Jr. is an exciting prospect as he profiles himself as someone who can do a bit of everything. He has an excellent sense of zone coverage and shows a good understanding of route concepts, receiver location and excellent eye discipline. He has also shown the ability to play press coverage, both mirrored and physical, and has only 1 penalty against him in the last 3 years due to excellent ball skills. But his long stride shows up, and his long speed as well as his ability to change direction is a small concern. He’s also pretty ruthless with his tackling at times, but I kind of love the cowardice and competitiveness of his game.

WR Drake London, USC: London profiles itself as your classic X-receiver on the next level. The basketball background is obvious as he has elite body control and is just as good in challenging situations as anyone else has been out in the last few years. He will instantly be a big threat in the red zone and will provide an offensive with mismatch on the outside against average cornerbacks. I’m worried about his ability to separate from defenders and I think he lacks speed and is not very sudden or explosive moving sideways, which means he is struggling to get separation. The big question is how often he can dominate in challenging situations at the next level when cornerbacks want to be better.

Level 3 – It’s still good!

QB Malik Willis, Liberty: An elite athlete with a cannon of one arm. Sign me up. He is raw and needs some time to learn some of the nuances of the position, but the benefit is huge. If he trains well and develops well, he can become a QB at a very high level due to his elite athletic qualities and his arm talent. I think there is a clear risk and you expect a lot of improvements over the next few years, such as staying calm in the pocket and knowing, improved accuracy and the willingness to check it down, but I think he is worthy of an early choice in the first round if you believe in the qualities. He wants to create great plays outside the structure and has a couple of incredible plays every week. If he reaches his upside, he will be the best QB in this class and potentially one of the best in the league.

Chris Olave WR, Ohio State: Olave profiles itself as an excellent number 2 receiver that can be moved around the formation to win both outside as a Z receiver or in the slot. He will fit a range of modern NFL offenses with his excellent route running, ability to track the ball on deeper throws and create explosive games. He is not a burner, but can get on top of cornerbacks and win down the field. His biggest concern is lack of physicality, which will show up against press coverage and also inability to break tackles and create YAC. While this is a concern. I think he has enough abilities to be an excellent # 2 receiver on the next level.

EDGE George Karlaftis: Karlaftis looks like a very good power rusher, whose game is based on very good hand use and a lot of strength. The elite length and athleticism that you want to see from top EDGE rushers does not look like that, and that’s a little worrying. He should be an excellent running back and is versatile as he sometimes has the power to line up inside. I really like him, but I think he should be used in a certain way.

WR Garrett Wilson, Ohio State: I see Wilson more as a very good wide receiver second. Unless he improves his ability to hit press coverage and speeds up his routes (less unnecessary steps), he may be limited to a WR2 role in a misdemeanor. He is extremely fast and explosive with the ball in his hands and there will always be a role in the attack for this type of player but I think he will have to develop his game further to be worth a very high choice in these year. draft.

CB Kaiir Elam, Pitt: Elam profiles itself as the classic physical outside cornerback with great length, size and speed that everyone wanted to play Cover3 a few years ago. Elam will fit a variety of forms, but his frame and length are suitable for a press corner. He is very physical at the scrimmage line and pushes receivers to the sideline and has the speed to carry then vertically down the field. However, he has two major concerns. First, he is too clammy in coverage and was marked 7 times in 10 games last year. He’s going to be a flagging machine if he does not clean up this. He’s also a little bad in the running game and needs to finish and get better off blocks.

QB Kenny Pickett, Pitt: I do not care about the hands! Kenny Pickett can play. He sees the part, has the tools, can throw with anticipation and create outside structure. He especially throws midfielders with expectation really well and shows a precise ball placement. I understand he showed an improvement last year and it scares some people away because of his age. He needs to clean up his pocket presence and he will be over-aggressive at times when he should check it down, but I believe in talent in general.

Level 4 – I’m a little disappointed …

DT Devonte Wyatt, Georgia: Wyatt seems to share opinions, and it’s easy to see why when you see him. He’s explosive and flies off the ball, but you do not see him win in many other ways. He seems to be really good at one thing, but is not a well-rounded player at the moment and the lack of production is worrying. I think he is unlikely to be an excellent starter but should be a good starter.

FROM David Ojabo: Ojabo is an explosive athlete with a big upside, but he is seriously raw and has a lot to learn. He has everything you want in a first-pass rusher, such as burst, length, speed, but he does not really look like he knows how to hurry the passer yet. He unfortunately injured his Achilles on his professional day and he could be stolen later but mid-1. seems a bit rich.

LB Nakobe Dean, Georgia: I really like Dean and look like a classic run and chase linebacker. He’s explosive and despite his smaller frame he’s very physical, but I’m not sure how I feel about drawing a slightly undersized linebacker in the 1st, as my big concern is whether he can cover very large TEs. is and can he get out of blocks?

DE Boye Mafe, Minnesota: Mafe is another elite athlete who has a big advantage, but his film does not match his athletics at this point. He has a great first step and can fly past tackles, but if they can keep up with him then he does not have a counter and he is also struggling as a running back at this point in his career.
