Eagles fans have made their voices known all offseason. Here’s what happens when you place them in charge of an NFL mock draft.

At the time of this story’s release, we will be less than three weeks away from the start of another selection meeting and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell’s announcement that the Carolina Panthers are on the clock. Time has flown this offseason. Seeing the Philadelphia Eagles play until February is part of the reason for that. Now, with the NFL Scouting Combine and Pro Days in our rearview mirror and Philly hosting their top 30 visits, one NFL mock draft follows another.

This time around, we asked some of our fans and readers what they think. We also worked out another colossal first-round trade. What can we say? We got greedy after seeing the first one.

What follows is the result of a ton of conversations. Our staff called around and talked with some Carolina Panthers voices, so we’ll handle the trade. What can we say? We’re control freaks.

Eagles fans… you handle the picks. Here’s what happens when you place too many cooks in the kitchen.

Bijan Robinson. 10. player. 851. . Running back. Longhorns

Welp, we gave the people what they wanted. Bijan Robinson is the pick at ten.

A two-time First-team All-Big 12 nod (2021, 2022), this five-foot-eleven, 220-pound former Texas Longhorns standout collected 3,410 rushing yards on 539 career attempts at the NCAA level. That resulted in 3,410 rushing yards and 33 touchdowns in 31 career games that spanned three seasons. He also added 805 yards and eight receiving TDs to the Longhorns’ cause on 60 career receptions.

If he is Philly’s choice and all of this translates to the NFL, the Birds might be in business. We’ll have to wait and see if the Eagles’ first choice mirrors that of the fans though.
