Here’s a Bunch of Final Mock Drafts for the Eagles To Kill Time Until 8pm

Here are a bunch of final round mock drafts for you to go crazy over until the draft begins tonight at 8pm. Local guys and national guys. Behold:

#13 Jameson Williams (Trade with the Houston texans)

I think the Eagles get aggressive — trading away Pick Nos. 18 and 51 overall to Houston in exchange for No. 13 — to ensure they get the wide receiver they covet. Williams is the burner of this receiver group and, when healthy, would join former Alabama teammate DeVonta Smith.

#15 Jordan Davis

The Eagles boost their defensive interior with the mauling big man who is a unicorn at defensive tackle.

Oil me up.

#15 Jameson Williams

Another year, another first-round wideout for the Eagles. And while Williams is still recovering from a torn left ACL, he is a burner who can beat you over the top in the vertical game or after the catch. Having Williams and DeVonta Smith running routes would ease some pressure on quarterback Jalen Hurts, even though we won’t see both wideouts on the field right away.

#18 Trent McDuffie

We just projected a game-breaker on offense opposite DeVonta Smith, so how about one on defense opposite Darius Slay? McDuffie is an outstanding tackler with great burst and instincts.

I’ll tell you what there will be nobody immediately hated for no reason other than we’ll always think he’s Sidney Jones more than Trent McDuffie. Our stupid Eagles brain can’t separate Trent McDuffie and Sidney Jones. It is his parents fault that he doesn’t pass the name test. Trent McDuffie sounds like an eight year old white running back prodigy I used to watch on YouTube back in the day. A mixture of Cody Paul and Sam McGuffie. That screams bust.

#15 Jameson Williams

Williams would likely be the No. 1 receiver off the board if he didn’t tear the ACL in his left knee in the national title game in January. He’s explosive but might miss some time early in the season. This would mean back-to-back-to-back first-round receivers for the Eagles, who might just move on from Jalen Reagor.

#18 Trent McDuffie

This could be a defensive end, but the No. 2 corner spot on the other side of Darius Slay is a huge hole. McDuffie is a tough and physical corner with versatility.

You think Mel and Todd called each other before doing their mocks?

#15 Kyle Hamilton

Hamilton is my No. 5 player in the 2022 draft class. This would be an absolute steal for Howie Roseman and the Eagles. 

#18 Trent McDuffie

McDuffie is one of my favorite players in the draft class. He’s smart, tough and instinctive. He’d fit in beautifully across from Darius Slay. 

You can never have enough Kyle’s in the city of Philadelphia I’ll always say.

#15 Jameson Williams

It’s never a bad idea to add receivers from Alabama! DeVonta Smith was a marvel as a rookie after the Eagles took him 10th overall out of ‘Bama last year. Williams would be another tremendous target who creates splash plays downfield and stretches defenses vertically. QB Jalen Hurts will have a chance to cement his position as the Eagles’ leader for years to come.

#18 Andrew Booth

The Eagles got their receiver with their first selection of the round. Now, they get the CB they covet, someone who can play opposite Darius Slay. On film, Booth looks like he would be comfortable in any system; he would adapt well to Philly’s zone-heavy scheme.

I think this is the most likely scenario. The Eagles will hit one home run the fans will love and select another guy who has been mocked to the Eagles ever so often since the National Championship. Good balance.

#15 Chris Olave

The Eagles feel like a prime candidate to dip back into the WR pool, despite their first-round investments the last few years.

#18 Tyler Linderbaum

Linderbaum’s highly rated but falling because … people don’t want a center? He gets Jason Kelce comps, so why not grab him to replace … Jason Kelce?

Prepare for the conversation now with your dad. To him Chris Olave is Garett Wilson and Garrett Wilson is Chris Olave. He just doesn’t know who is who. He’s going to ask you if this is the WR who is the Eagles fan? Let him down gently.

#15 Jordan Davis

The Eagles get their unicorn. 

#18 Treylon Burks

Burks is a big-bodied YAC monster who can play in the slot in between DeVonta Smith and Quez Watkins. A trade back from this spot is possible as well.

#11 Jordan Davis (projected trade with the Commanders)

Howie Roseman’s best first-round moments have come when he’s moved up into the top 13. And he’s not afraid to trade within the division, as last year showed.

#18 No One (projected trade with the Chiefs, than another trade with the Falcons)

It’s possible the Eagles draft a first-round receiver for the third straight year, but I can see Roseman doing whatever he can to trade out of the late first for more Day 2 picks.

I think Jordan Davis might stifle the blow that Eagles fans only picked once and didn’t get any Day 1 weapons for Jalen Hurts. It depends on the haul. It would be awesome if two division rivals traded with the Eagles in back to back years just for the Birds to get franchise cornerstones on both sides of the ball.

#15 Jordan Davis

I went back-and-forth between Davis and Notre Dame safety Kyle Hamilton for the Eagles first pick. I do believe Hamilton will fall outside of the top 10, and if he does, I think the Eagles will try to make a move up the board to get him. They know they need a difference-making safety for Jonathan Gannon’s defense, they have close to nothing at the position right now and tried to give big money to a safety this offseason.

So why Davis? Because when trying to decide what the Eagles will do the safe bet is to always lean towards the lines. Davis plays a position the Eagles really value and is viewed as a generational athlete at the position. Hamilton is a special prospect but Davis has physical qualities you aren’t going to find in the draft every year. Davis is also likely to make it to No. 15, with the only road block being Baltimore at No. 14.

The Eagles might have to move up to get him, but when you add in the position, the likelihood he will be available and the special physical qualities, Davis seem like the player most likely to end up on the Eagles at the end of the first round.

#18 Jameson Williams

Williams wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for the torn ACL he suffered in January. He still might not make it to No. 18. But when projecting who the Eagles will end up with at the end of the first round, Williams is on the short list. It is possible they might have to move up to get him a few spots from No. 18 (or No. 15), but I think Williams is a player the Eagles are willing to maneuver for.

In a draft class that doesn’t have very many special players, Williams checks the box as a prospect that would be viewed as a top prospect in any draft class, not just this one. Williams has elite speed on the outside, something the Eagles have spent years looking for. The team can say they believe in Quez Watkins but they tried to trade for Calvin Ridley and they tried to sign Allen Robinson. Williams checks the same important box that Davis does — he is a special physical talent

I’ve never said a bad word about ESP.
