Might the Philadelphia Eagles find help in the form of a few ACC prospects?

Well, you have to give them credit, and that’s true whether you’re a Philadelphia Eagles fan or someone who identifies as a fan of another football conference. The ACC is doing all that it can to transform itself into more than just being seen as a conference where some really good basketball programs reside.

The ACC wants to be seen as a strong football conference as well.

Now, for that to happen, the Clemson Tigers and Notre Dame Fighting Irish aren’t going to be able to shoulder the load alone. Several of these other teams have to step up as well. That means, at some point, the Miami Hurricanes, Virginia Tech Hokies, and Florida State Seminoles will need to capture some of that past glory and produce winning football on a more consistent basis.

As a whole, the teams that make up the ACC are doing all that they can to build a respectable football conference, but until that happens, try not to forget that there have been some great prospects that have entered the NFL and made a name for themselves.

Let’s take a few moments and salute some of the efforts of those programs, shall we? Here’s a seven-round Eagles mock draft where only talent from the Atlantic Coast Conference needs to apply. Buckle up. This should be fun.
