McShay Mock: Eagles Grab Teez Tabor in First Round
The Eagles don't officially have their pick set in stone yet, it will be either 14 or 15, that will be determined at the combine in Indianapolis.
After the Super Bowl, every draft spot is set, expect the 14 and 15 spots, ESPN’s Todd McShay released his 2.0 version of his mock draft and he has the Philadelphia Eagles selecting Florida cornerback Teez Tabor with the 14th overall pick in the first round.
Tabor needs to cut down on the number of big plays he allows, but he has some of the best ball skills among cornerbacks in this draft class, with nine interceptions and 28 pass breakups in his past three seasons. He shows natural anticipation, if not the most consistent technique. Wide receivers Corey Davis or Mike Williams could also be in play if they slip this far.
As McShay points out, the Eagles could also target a wide receiver with their first pick, but notes Tabor has the best ball skills at the position in the draft.
Tabor was a third team All-American with notching four interceptions and six pass break-ups.
McShay’s first mock draft was released Dec. 13, before the NFL’s draft order was determined. In that version, he had the Eagles taking Tabor with the 18th overall selection.
