The Eagles close a solid draft with a solid depth piece, Mario Goodrich.

Several mocks have linked the Eagles to former Clemson Tigers standout Andrew Booth. In our sim, they ignore him but pick up his former teammate, Mario Goodrich, much later. That gives them some insurance at the cornerback position and, potentially, someone that will eventually prove he’s better than where he was selected.

In 2021, Goodrich notched 42 tackles, two interceptions, nine pass breakups, and a forced fumble which are very comparable numbers, and in some cases, better numbers than Booth produced (37 tackles, three picks, and five pass breakups).

Simulation 2: James Dempsey (BYU center)

Obviously, Jason Kelce can’t play forever. This is an obvious late-round selection that you hope pays off later.

Simulation 3: Jaivon Heiligh (Coastal Carolina wide receiver)

They’re playing some ball in Conway, South Carolina folks. Current Eagle Tarron Jackson cut his teeth as a member of the Chanticleers program, and Coastal Carolina will put a few more stars in the league this year as well. Add Jaivon Heiligh’s name to that discussion.

In 2021, Heiligh racked up 66 receptions. That resulted in 1,128 receiving yards and seven trips to the end zone. Adding him to the Eagles’ wide receiver corps could force Philly to move on from Devon Allen, John Hightower, Zach Pascal, and Deon Cain. He’s already better than those guys.

That’s how we’ll end this one, with a little controversy to get the blood flowing.
