Eagles

ATHENS, GA - OCTOBER 02: Nakobe Dean #17 of the Georgia Bulldogs reacts in the second half against the Arkansas Razorbacks at Sanford Stadium on October 2, 2021 in Athens, Georgia.

ESPN Draft Expert Todd McShay revealed his “Mock Draft 2.0” on Wednesday (Here is who he had in his first mock draft of the year.) You will need an ESPN+ account to see all the picks but we will just break down the Eagles picks because lets be real, those are the only ones we care about.

Todd has the Eagles using all three picks and here is who he projects the Eagles taking with picks 15, 16, and 19.

  • 15: Nakobe Dean, ILB, Georgia.

    Here is what McShay says about the pick:

    “Let’s get started with Deam, who is my No. 6 prospect. He does it all, from using his speed and sideline-to-sideline range to match with running backs in coverage, to blitzing through gaps and pressuring quarterbacks, to stopping the run and wrapping up ball carriers. His motor never stops, and his instincts make him a true game-breaker. The middle of their defense covets someone like Dean.”

  • 16: Travon Walker, DE, Georgia.

    Here is what McShay said about the pick:

    “The Eagles pass-rush was atrocious, and Walker is incredibly disruptive. Philadelphia’s 29 sacks were 31st in the NFL last season. Derek Barnett is a free agent, and Fletcher Cox and Brandon Graham are both north of 30′ years old. Plus, Graham is returning from an Achilles injury. Walker, meanwhile, is a power-based edge rusher who keeps getting better. Its time to stock the pass-rush cupboard a bit”

  • 19: Treylon Burks, WR, Arkansas.

    Here is what McShay said about the pick:

    “I think the Eagles stick with Jalen Hurts and Hurts could use another target, even after Philadelphia drafted receivers in the first round in each of the past two drafts. Consider the Eagles were 25th in the league last season in pass-game-yardage–and 30th when reduced to just wide receivers. Burks has 6’3 size, great hands and a wide catch radius. He’d be a mismatch in the slot for coach Nick Sirianni and has the ability to tack on extra yards after the catch and smooth acceleration upfield.”
