Mock Draft Time!

Since this season is a wash, I thought I would post an early mock draft. In this 2 round mock, Rivals.com has the Iggles taking two blue chippers.

12. Philadelphia (5-8)
The Pick: Malcolm Kelly, WR, Oklahoma*
The Buzz: The Eagles are looking to stretch the field with a blue-chip receiver.

43. Philadelphia
The Pick: Ali Highsmith, LB, LSU
The Buzz: The Eagles love this blue-chip defender for their front seven.

A receiver in the first round? A top linebacker prospect from a big time college program? I don’t think Frank Coyle knows Andy Reid that well. Reid is much more likely to take a lineman than a receiver in the first round. Even if the Eagles probably need one.

It is very early, but I would like these picks a lot. The Eagles are lacking a big time play maker on offense, and Kelly could be that guy. They also lack a play making linebacker. The linebackers have been much good against the run, but they have almost no big plays this year.

Knowing the Eagle luck, these two will have a great combine, and shoot up the draft boards past their picks.
