What Are The Eagles Options At The 14th Overall Pick?
The Eagles own the 14th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft which starts Thursday Night. They are in position to address needs such as Cornerback, Running Back, Wide Receiver and Defensive End. Considering NFL teams always overreach for Quarterbacks in the Draft each year, if two QB Prospects are picked in the top 13 selections, this would allow several players to drop to Philadelphia.
Former NFL Scout and NFL Network Draft Analyst Daniel Jeremiah joined Mike Gill on Wednesday and discussed different options the Eagles have at 14th overall:
"See what happens with Christian McCaffrey if he were to get there, I think you can turn in the card and give your young Quarterback a nice weapon there but I don't necessarily think he will get there. Dalvin Cook, if you're comfortable with him off the field, could make some sense there, be a great fit with what (Eagles) do offensively. Mike Williams and Corey Davis, to get another Receiver to add what they've done in the offseason would make some sense there. I wouldn't sleep on a Pass Rusher, the one name I would keep an eye on is Derek Barnett of Tennessee, who didn't test all that great in terms of running a (fast 40-yard Dash) and all that but went up against dudes in the SEC and was a dominant, productive player there and throwing him on (Eagles) defensive front would be a nice fit."
