If the Philadelphia Eagles want young talent, the SEC is a nice place to look.
Tell the truth. Even though you had some NCAA pigskin to watch, once the collegiate football campaign got going, college football didn’t feel like college football until the SEC season got going with its schedule. If you live in the Delaware Valley and identify as a Philadelphia Eagles
fan, you understand but not as much. If you’re a ‘Birds’ fan whose life has taken you to other parts of the country, the southern regions for instance, you understand wholeheartedly.
Football is different in the south. No one believed the SEC wasn’t going to play football. The Big Ten may have had their doubts. The Pac-12 may have experienced some hesitancy, but there was no way those 14 schools that make up the SEC weren’t going to play football. The game is almost a secular religion, and as long as the best high school players in the country keep committing to play their college ball in what is widely recognized as college football’s best conference, the NFL will always look in their direction when it’s time to start talking about the NFL Combine and the annual NFL Draft.
Let’s have some fun. It’s never too early to do some scouting. It’s never too early for a mock draft. It’s never too early to talk about the best collegiate prospects. Here’s another Eagles-only, three-round mock draft For this one, SEC players are the only ones who qualify for a mention.
