EAGLES 2013 DRAFT WISH LIST: FINAL EDITION.

Posted April 24, 2013

RIGHT off the bat let me say for the record that I still would like FS Eric Reid, but there is no way to project the Eagles having the extra pick to do it with as of today. That said, this Draft Wish List is built with an eye towards what Chip Kelly says that he (not me) wants to build. It’s also based off of what we have at the moment. (If something changes, I’ll adjust off course.)

Round 1 Pick 4: (G) CHANCE WARMACK – For once let’s just take the blue chip player dangling in front of us. His former position coach is now with the Eagles so he’ll know how to get the most out of him and he’s a Day 1 starter. Besides, we haven’t had a star inside since Shawn Andrews went insane.

Round 2 Pick 35: (OT) KYLE LONG – He already knows Kelly’s system since it’s the one he just played in a few weeks back. He’s also already in the condition to run it, and he can mentor it to his line-mates and lay the groundwork for him being in the next generation of leaders for this team. Not to mention the fact that we could use another credible starter at OT.

Round 3 Pick 67: (CB) B.W. WEBB – We have a lot of bodies at CB, but no real quality depth. This guy is a heck of an athlete and he’s a legit Corner. Check the reel and when you do, ignore all the interceptions. Watch him diagnose screens, limit YAC, and get low to turn the run back inside. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3hlxbwX5F3c .The knock on him is that he went to a small school, but in recent years when William and Mary turns out a draft pick, he usually sticks, contributes and often starts. Besides, Kelly wants to build up Special Teams and this guy also gives you a PR.

Round 4 Pick 101: (FS) JOSH EVANS – We still need a guy who can play deep AND play the run. If this guy slips through to the 4th, we have to grab him. This,http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6CdLdRu4NTk  is a one minute highlight reel, and this, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bPErIZss3Nc is a down in and down out (6 minutes) reel of him in a game. (I like this one better because it shows what he has to tighten up at this level.) Safety is thin this year, and not only do we need a puppy here, but Kelly likes them and LB’s for Special Teams.

Round 5 Pick 136: (ILB) A.J. KLEIN – He’s a fiery, 250lb. MLB with FOUR pick-six TD’s in college. If this guy ends up in the 5th (where he’s projected) we’re idiots if we sleep on him. But words are cheap, watch him play:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ccA5hvUaX-8 .

Round 7 Pick 210: (QB) JORDAN RODGERS – Yeah. His brother. The knock on him that he’s short (at 6’1). You wanna see a mobile QB who gets out of bounds? Wanna see a QB who makes quick decisions? Wanna see a guy use his feet in the pocket to get a receiver open? Wanna see a young guy throw the ball away when nothing is there? Wanna see a guy deliver the ball to THE spot? This isn’t a highlight reel, it’s game film.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GtiqnCF5a9s . Keep in mind, he didn’t even get a Combine invite. I wouldn’t even be mad if we reached and grabbed him in the 5th because this guy could be a steal. This is my 2013 Russell Wilson.

Round 7 Pick 212: (RB) ONTERIO McCALEBB – You draft him here and move him to WR. He’s a 168lb. RB who can’t really break tackles, but he does catch the ball away from his body and does run a 4.37. Watching his reel you’ll see a guy who has NO BUSINESS at RB, and the QB he plays with is downright awful. But McCalebb’s speed rescues so many of those poorly conceived plays it’s not even funny. (Seriously, if the OC cashes one paycheck, they should arrest him for fraud.) Oh yeah, did I mention he’s also a KR? Check it out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6aUrgtHkg-o .

Round 7 Pick 218: (S) DAIMION STAFFORD – This one is a head scratcher. He’s a FS who only runs a 4.65, but has SS/Nickle LB size, and he also is a PR. He has some highlight film but its really poor quality. Again, Special Teamer.

Round 7 Pick 239: (DT) NICK WILLIAMS – Kelly likes versatility and this guy has played both O-line and D-line, and he also did okay at the Combine. If he can slide over to 3-4 DE, he could stick (plus he’d be cheap).
