2012 Philadelphia Eagles Seven Round Mock Draft


1. First Round, 15th overall: Fletcher Cox, DT, Mississippi State

I know I had Cox to the Panthers in a previous seven round mock, but things change over the course of time and now I have him dropping to the Eagles’ pick. I think Philly is an interesting wildcard in the first round because they may no longer be in the market for an offensive tackle with the signing of Demetress Bell. I think Andy Reid always loves to take himself a good big man, and Cox fits the bill here. He is a big, athletic defensive tackle prospect who doesn’t fill a dire need for the Eagles, but he does fit what they typically do in the first round of the draft.

2. Second Round, 46th overall: Brian Quick, WR, Appalachian State

Quick gives the Eagles a big, physical wide receiver in the mold of a Brandon Marshall. He’s really raw but he can take some time to develop because the Eagles have DeSean Jackson as well as Jeremy Maclin. It will be really interesting to me to see if they pick up a guy like this, and it’s even a possibility in the first round though I wouldn’t advocate it. I think this is solid value and a pretty good fit for the youngster out of Appalachian State.

3. Second Round, 51st overall: Kirk Cousins, QB, Michigan State

The Eagles could be looking to draft a young signal caller early in the draft with their recent departures at the position and Mike Vick not getting any younger. If you ask me, this would be a reach for a player like Cousins but I could definitely see Andy Reid making the pick, because it’s a high enough selection that it could potentially save his job if it at least appears as though a plan for the future is in place. Cousins is a winner and would be a great teammate, and could really succeed with some of the weapons that the Eagles have in place already.

4.  Third Round, 88th overall: Shaun Prater, CB, Iowa

This seems like a really reasonable slot for Prater to go. Asante Samuel is heading on out of Philly, so getting a kid like Prater with great speed, ball skills, and special teams ability is not a bad idea at all. I think he has potential to be a starter for a long time in the NFL and I really like his overall game. He is a tough kid who is not afraid to lay out his body to make a play, and he made a lot of huge interceptions at Iowa that changed games. He has what it takes to be very good and a great value at this juncture.

5. Fourth Round, 114th overall: Keenan Robinson, LB, Texas

The Eagles could use depth at linebacker, though I like the addition of DeMeco Ryans. Robinson was a really productive guy at Texas and he could be a great value in the fourth round. He is a very good athlete who would play outside linebacker for Philly.

6. Fifth Round, 153rd overall: Jake Bequette, DE, Arkansas

The Eagles are always looking to add more pass rushers, and Jake Bequette could really benefit from learning from a guy like Jason Babin. I think this would be a good fit in the fifth round if Bequette lasts that long.

7. Sixth Round, 172nd overall: Levy Adcock, OT, Oklahoma State

I’m not sure why Adcock’s stock has taken such a dramatic fall, but before last season some people were saying he might be the best OT in the nation. I think there might be some mis-information out there about this guy, be it good or bad. One way or another, he’ll be in an NFL camp and I think in the sixth round the Eagles could snatch him up.

8. Sixth Round, 194th overall: George Bryan, TE, North Carolina State

Bryan is a guy who has really reliable hands, but isn’t a great athlete at all. He is a very good blocker, and I wouldn’t be surprised if someday he could potentially become an offensive tackle.

9. Sixth Round, 200th overall: Antonio Fenelus, DB, Wisconsin

I’m not really sure where Fenelus fits, all I know is that he is a very solid football player. He’s undersized, but could play safety or cornerback and be an ace on special teams. Exactly what you’re looking for at this stage of the draft.
