Here is the first NEPM draft board for the Eagles at #22.

All prospects that are chosen by all six mocks I reviewed prior to our pick are not included. Why look at something you can't buy??

Next, I focused only on positions of need and only prospects who project high enough to be in our range for the first round pick at #22.

I looked at six rankings and six mock drafts. The rankings to get an idea of where they're ranked overall and the mocks to account for position bias based on need of other teams.

My board for the first round consists of ten prospects. 2 CB, 2 WR, 2 FS, 2 DT34, 1 DE34, 1 OLB34/DE34

In all six mocks at least four, if not five, of these prospects were available when we are on the clock.

POS....Name..................Avg.Rank........#MocksAvail
WR....M. Lee.....................15.1................1 of 6
CB.....D. Dennard..............16.8................2 of 6
FS.....H. Clinton-Dix...........16.8...............1 of 6
DT34..L. Nix......................16.8...............1 of 6
DT34..R.Hageman..............18.7...............2 of 6
OLB34..K. Ealy...................21.2...............2 of 6
DE34...S. Tuitt...................23.5...............6 of 6
CB......J. Gilbert.................24.3...............3 of 6
FS.......C. Pryor..................29.8...............4 of 6
WR......K. Benjamin............32.7...............6 of 6

Here's the available prospects for each mock at #22:

Walter Football #1 - Ealy, Tuitt, Pryor, Benjamin My pick = OLB34 K. Ealy
Walter Football #2 - Lee, Dennard, Hageman, Tuitt, Benjamin. My pick = CB Dennard (I skip the higher rated WR Lee)
ESPN Kiper = Dennard, Hageman, Ealy, Tuitt, Benjamin. My pick = CB Dennard
CBS Sports #1 = Clinton Dix, Tuitt, Gilbert, Pryor, Benjamin. My pick = FS Ha Ha Clinton Dix
CBS Sports #2 = Tuitt, Gilbert, Pryor, Benjamin. My pick = FS. C. Pryor (I skip over DE Tuitt and CB Gilbert
Draftek = Nix, Tuitt, Gilbert, Pryor, Benjamin. My pick = FS. C. Pryor (skipping Nix, Tuitt and Gilbert)

So my picks are: Ealy (1), Dennard (2) Clinton-Dix (1), Pryor (2)
True BPA at PON picks are: Ealy (1), Lee (1), Dennard (1), Clinton-Dix (1), Tuitt (1), Nix (1)

So combine the two and you have seven different names and I would be happy with any of them.

My favorite scenario is FS Ha Ha Clinton-Dix slips down to us and we grab him.
Second Favorite is OLB34 K. Ealy falls in our lap.
Third Favorite is CB D. Dennard is our pick.
Fourth Favorite is FS. C. Pryor is our pick.

According to the mocks, we get one of my four scenarios.

I'm good with that.
Anyone??

Where are the strengths of this draft? We need to bolster the defense but a guy like Benjamin could be a beast if added to Celek/Ertz, DJax and Cooper.

As a lifelong FSU fan (grew up in FL), I'd be excited to see Benjamin here. He is a beast! But we really need defense, so I like Clinton Dix and Ealy, with Dix being my favorite pick. I don't think CB is as much of a need as safety. But Dennard wouldn't be a bad pick in that spot, either.

As far as number of prospects with top four round projection, wr and cb have 18 each which is over a full round of picks for just those two. That is just the count of prospects based on rankings. When the ratings come out, you can see how many are projected to be solid starters or better.
