1. Josh Allen
What can we say about Josh Allen that hasn’t already been said? Allen is a lock to be selected in the top ten picks of the draft. Philly won’t be adding him to the nest unless they trade up (and give up a ton).
2. Montez Sweat
Sweat’s the best defensive end of this class, outside of Nick Bosa of course, but he might also double as the second-best outside linebacker if your defensive scheme is the 3-4. Either way, unless Philly’s trading up, don’t expect him to be on the board when the Eagles are ready to make their first round choice.
3. Brian Burns
Like Sweat, Burns has the ability to wreck offensive schemes whether his hand is in the dirt or he’s standing up. When we started mentioning the draft and everyone started talking about constructing their mocks, Burns’ name was mentioned in the conjunction with ‘The Birds’ a time or two.
Though that hasn’t happened often recently, Burns offers an interesting prospect for Philly. There’s just one thing. For their defensive scheme, he’s probably better suited to play in the 4-3 defensive end role.
