WCG Mock Draft - The Philadelphia Eagles Select...


Knowshon Moreno
Running Back

ANALYSIS: It feels like yesterday  I was watching Sunday night football and saw a struggling bears d line stuff the eagles 4 straight times and come out with a close victory. While they are coming off an impressive playoff run, the eagles must address two things: Goal line productivity and the offensive line. At pick 21 the eagles could go Eben Britton, but I dont feel they get value with that pick, drafting a  developmental tackle. I intially considered Chris Wells at this spot  but scouts concerns with his work ethic and attitude have him sounding more like Cedric Benson than Duece Mccallister.  

 At 21 Im going to pick Knowshown Moreno. He's a versatile back and will bring an instant upgrade to their goal line offense. The third concern for the eagles going into this year has to be the health of Brian Westbrook and Moreno address the short and long term at the halfback position.

 Other options: I would be suprised if the eagles stayed put at this pick and didnt try to trade up for an elite left tackle. They dont have a viable tackle on this roster and their current plan  is to slide guard sean andrews over to the left side. Reid has never picked the player fans wanted, but another consideration might be taking a gamble on Darrius Heyward Bay. But again at this price, Bay seems like an expensive risk.
