It is that time of the year! NFL (mock) draft season! The draft will go down April 27th-29th LIVE from Kansas City Missouri. The three day event should see Howie Roseman and the Eagles be very active as the team has two first round picks (pick 10 and pick 30) but hold only 5 picks total. Howie could trade down to recoup some picks. He could trade up to grab a player he targeted. He could trade a first round pick for a current stud player who is in a contract battle with his current team, like he did last year with AJ Brown.
The beauty of Howie Roseman is he works in the shadows. Last season no one saw him snagging AJ Brown for one of the team’s first round picks. But he did. He was able to get Brown, and pay him. Something the Titans were not willing to do. They then used the pick they got from the Eagles to draft Treylon Burks. A player who scouts said “Could be AJ Brown.” AJ Brown proceeded to have the best season of any wide receiver to wear an Eagles uniform.
So what about this season?
Our own NFL Draft expert Jamie “The Bro” Lynch is BACK! He is in “the lab” (as the kids say) and has been crunching the numbers. Making phone calls. Watching the tape. Jamie will give you a mock of the top 10 picks, ending with the Eagles drafting 10th overall. “I cant do picks 1-30….I dont have the stamina,” Jamie told us. “Low motor.”
We kicked it off last week with Jamie Lynch’s Mock Draft 2.0, because I just forgot to include the 1.0. This week is 3.0 Make sure to tweet Jamie your thoughts about his picks on twitter @JeLynchJr
