  • 2007 Draft

    Might as well take advantage of having a whole forum. What do you see as the biggest needs to be filled through the draft and where?

    I would like to see linebacker, safety, and cornerback first day.

    something along the lines of Patrick Willis, John Wendling, David Irons


    The way it is

    I like David Irons, but am wary of taking him because he seems like a great natural athlete but doesn't seem to excel skill-wise at his position. There are plenty of excellent cornerback options in the third round.

      If Willis is left, I would go after him, but if not Carriker maybe. Wendling would be a great second rounder, but if he is gone we could ge after Weddle. If no one we value would be left and Brian Leonard is still available, I could really see this team go for him in the second. CB would be good in the third, but I don't think we need to draft that position so high, unless none of the players in other positions that are left that we would want. I am beginning to realize Stallworth is probably gone. You all can berate me and tell me how stupid I am now. So WR could be a possibility in the third, but I hope not, because I really want to see what our young WRs already on our roster can do. Anthony Waters would be a great third pick if we wouldn't get Willis. We may not have a fourth, but if we trade for one, Anthony Waters might still be available, DE could be a possibility as long as we wouldn't get Carriker. Big DT who can stop the run is very possible as well if we don't get one in FA is possible in the fifth, along with QB for the future, OL, CB, S (If we don't get Mikell back as well), pounding RB if we don't get one in the earlier rounds is very possible as well.

        The Eagles have a few key needs that must be addressed in this draft: LB, DS, and DT. Secondary needs are: CB, WR, DE, and bigger RB. The team has 6 draft picks as of now. I can't specify what they're going to do in any round. I'm currently advocating trading back to the early second to grab more picks, especially in the 4th and 5th. This draft has some decent talent in the 4th-6th round...

          Is John Wendling really moving up people's boards that he's a second rounder right now?

            He's also going to be a 25 year old rookie which is a big turnoff imo.

              Willis just ran a 4.49 and 4.53 at the combine. There's no way he falls to 26 now.

                Speed isn't anything. You have guys like Olsen and maybe Rouse moving up into Round 1. Poz is also a possibility to go ahead. It will depend on need, scouting, and luck.

                  Couldn't have said it better myself.

                    People have said that Patrick Willis is a two down back, what is your take on it? I personally don't think that's the case.

                      I agree with you, because with his more than adequate speed, he at least has the capability of being able to go into coverage. Hopefully though, other teams won't figure this out so he drops to us at 26.

                        I'm absolutely not worried at all about this draft. There is enough talent there that the Eagles will be able to fill their holes and get some impact players. That, combined with another year of seasoning for the classes of 2005-2006 means the Eagles remain a young and dangerous team. They are also well stocked for the 2008 draft, which could be an absolute monster class.

                          Don't we have 10 or 11 picks next year? It is shaping up to be a great draft class and can't wait to find out what will happen.

                            I believe we have 9 as of now, but the extra ones are in the 6th round and later.

                              Now that the combine is over what do you guys want with our first three picks?

                              I'm now thinking:
                              1 - Michael Griffin
                              2 - Quentin Moses (stock is plummeting)
                              3 - Anthony Waters

                              though I doubt they would go all defense on the first day I think that would be a great draft. Griffin fills in the safety spot Lewis left, Kearse is aging and Moses has potential as seen by his Junior year, and Waters can eventually replace Trotter in the middle, whether it be this season or next, and hopefully they keep Gaither at WLB.
