Eagles Trade Back to No. 15 in NFL.com Mock Draft
Could the Eagles move out of the No. 12 spot in the draft?
Good Morning Football host Peter Schrager believes that could be happening.
After making a trade with Miami Dolphins to move from No 6 to No. 12, Schrager thinks Philadelphia general manager Howie Roseman will continue to move around on draft day.
After Schrager’s first mock draft for NFL.com had the Eagles selecting Alabama wide receiver Jaylen Waddle, his second mock has the team making a trade from No. 12 down to No. 15 to beef up the offensive line.
This move really feels a lot like a Roseman move, trading back three spots, to pick up another Day 2 pick (No. 46 from the Patriots) to take a position they like to draft, selecting USC offensive lineman.
Philadelphia trades back three spots, picks up another Day 2 pick (No. 46 from the Patriots) and still gets one of the top offensive linemen in the draft. The Eagles have so many picks in the next two drafts that they could be in Best Player Available mode, even if they end up staying at No. 12.
Vera-Tucker would not be a popular pick, but would be an interesting one. The 6'4, 308-pound Vera-Tucker was USC's starting left tackle this past season and started at guard in 2019.
Many draft experts see Vera-Tucker moving back to play guard at the NFL level, making this an interesting pick for the Eagles who return Isaac Seumalo at left guard and Brandon Brooks at right guard. With those two returning, would Vera-Tucker enter a competition with Andre Dillard and Jordan Mailata at left tackle?
Expect to hear boo's if this is the pick for the Eagles.
