With the pre-draft visits starting to heat up and most of the major free agent signings completed, this is as good of time as any to do a new Philadelphia Eagles 2012 mock draft.
There are a few things to consider here when trying to surmise what the Eagles will do while imposing my opinion on what I think they should do. The obvious thing is to look for the position of greatest need and look at prospect who could fill it.
However, when it comes to the draft, it’s all about value and at what point you should take a player when looking at position of need vs. quality of player available.
With the addition of MLB DeMeco Ryans, the Eagles have filled their weakest position on the team. Outside of that, there aren’t too many other dire weaknesses that we can point to and think they’re definitely going to draft a particular position in round one, or any subsequent round.
Here are the positions, ranked in order by biggest need, that the Eagles need to address:
Strong side linebacker
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Meet your new linebacker.

The Lions have been seeking to upgrade the cornerback position since the end of the season, and Samuels...
Believe it or not, the question was proposed to Eagles head coach Andy Reid at the NFL owners meetings yesterday.
Here’s how Reid responded:
“I’m surprised by the fact that he didn’t have the success after leaving Philly. I wasn’t there. I’m not sure how that worked. I still felt when he left here that he had 2 or 3 years of great football. It didn’t work out that way...
According to CSNPhilly.com, Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Asante Samuel could be traded to the Tennessee Titans for a conditional third-round pick within the next few days.
“At this point, the Philadelphia Eagles are driving the train,” said Samuel’s agent, Alonzo Shavers per CSNPhilly.com. “They don’t have to do anything. They have always been very professional about...
Is Andy Reid ready to step down over a disagreement with the Eagles?
According to Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean, the Tennessee Titans aren’t on the verge of trading for Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Asante Samuel despite last night’s report that a deal could get done within the next few days.
Wyatt stated that the Titans won’t give up a conditional third-round pick for Samuel and that he doubts they’ll end up making a deal for him.
