Philadelphia Eagles Mock Draft Roundup 7.0


Throughout the year and leading up to the 2021 NFL draft, we will update our Philadelphia Eagles Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Philadelphia Eagles from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Eagles:

EDSFootball - Donahue (3/23)

6. Kyle Pitts, TE, Florida

While Pitts is technically labeled as a tight end, his tape reminds many of an elite WR, so let's just call him the best pass-catcher available for a team that could desperately use one. The Eagles have utilized two tight end sets since they drafted Dallas Goedert, so with the rumblings that Zach Ertz may be on his way out, they can seamlessly integrate Pitts into the system and give Jalen Hurts a dynamic weapon to help him in his first full season as the Eagles' starting QB. The news this past week is that the Eagles have been looking to add some talent at pass-catcher and Pitts is as talented as they come.

NFL.com - Brooks (3/23)

6. Justin Fields, QB, Ohio State

Are the Eagles really ready to hand the keys of the franchise to Jalen Hurts´╗┐? If not, GM Howie Roseman shouldn't turn down the chance to add a talented quarterback with franchise potential to the roster.

The Athletic - Beat Writers (3/23)

6. Ja'Marr Chase, WR, LSU

The best-case scenario for the Eagles landing a top playmaker would be four quarterbacks and an offensive tackle going off the board in the top five -- just what happened here. This leaves GM Howie Roseman with the chance to take Chase, Heisman Trophy-winner Devonta Smith, speed threat Jaylen Waddle or standout tight end Kyle Pitts. As enticing as it might be to take Pitts, a Philadelphia native, the Eagles can't go wrong with Chase. He would become the team's top receiver from day one and give the Eagles the type of player they badly need and have struggled to acquire. If the Eagles have buyer's remorse for taking Jalen Reagor over Justin Jefferson last season, they should be comforted knowing Chase, not Jefferson, was actually LSU's top receiver in 2019 and won the Biletnikoff Award as the nation's top receiver. -- Zach Berman

ESPN - Kiper (3/22)

6. Ja'Marr Chase, WR, LSU

The Eagles are another team that didn't have the cap space to be spenders in free agency, and this could be the ideal scenario for general manager Howie Roseman and new coach Nick Sirianni. They don't have the pressure to take one of the top four quarterbacks and let him compete with Jalen Hurts. Now, they can evaluate Hurts in 2021 alongside an elite wide receiver in Chase, then figure out next offseason whether Hurts is the guy around whom they want to build their team. This is a roster that has several holes, and Philadelphia has a long ways to go until it is back to being a Super Bowl contender. Chase would be a great addition to get this franchise back on track after a rough 2020.

CBS Sports - Wilson (3/22)

12. Patrick Surtain II, CB, Alabama

The Eagles have been mostly quiet in free agency but they did land safety Anthony Harris, though only on a one-year deal. Surtain may not seem like an immediate need for Philly, but other than Darius Slay, who is signed through 2025, no other CB has a contract beyond next season.

PFF - Renner (3/22)

6. Kyle Pitts, TE, Florida

Positional value be damned -- you won't find another Pitts in this draft or any other draft any time soon. The Eagles can find a receiver later or even use Pitts as such if they want. The Florida tight end ranked third among all college football players last year in yards per route run against man coverage.
