Philadelphia Eagles Mock Draft Roundup 6.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2022 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:

SI - Kevin Hanson (4/1)

15. Devonte Wyatt, IDL, Georgia

The Athletic's Bruce Feldman listed Wyatt as the "biggest freak" at Georgia in his 2021 list of college football freaks. While teammates Jordan Davis and Travon Walker stole the combine's headlines, Wyatt ran a 4.77 40-yard dash at 304 pounds to show off his elite quickness and athleticism. Even though the Eagles re-signed Fletcher Cox shortly after releasing him, there's a decent chance that Howie Roseman will use (at least) one of his three first-round picks on a defensive lineman.

19. Treylon Burks, WR, Arkansas

As noted in previous iterations of my mock draft, Burks (6'3", 225 pounds) would be an ideal complement to DeVonta Smith. Once Burks builds up speed, few defenders will catch him from behind, even if his 40-yard dash (4.55) was a bit disappointing at the combine. While not a polished route-runner, the former Razorback said that he tries to mimic his game after Deebo Samuel, and it's easy to see Samuel's versatility in Burks.

TRADE - 32. Tyler Linderbaum, IOL, Iowa

Jason Kelce is back for another season, and Landon Dickerson could move from guard to center after Kelce retires. Or he could stay at guard and the Eagles could draft a player who has drawn some comparisons to Kelce at a lower draft-day cost than expected. Unlike Dickerson, Linderbaum's frame may limit him only to center, but the Rimington Trophy winner is the best center prospect in not only this draft class but over the past several drafts as well.

CBS Sports - Kyle Stackpole (4/1)

15. Derek Stingley Jr., CB, LSU

Who better to help an inconsistent cornerback with immense potential than four-time Pro Bowler Darius Slay? Stingley has all the tools, and with the right environment could wind up as the class' best cover man.

16. Jermaine Johnson, EDGE, Florida State

There's a chance Johnson goes higher than this if three defensive lineman come off the board within the first four picks, like in this mock draft. But if he falls, the Eagles would be happy to pounce on the explosive and productive Johnson to beef up the all-important defensive front in Philadelphia.

19. Treylon Burks, WR, Arkansas

Having not added any free agent receivers so far, it would make sense for the Eagles to use one of their three first-round picks on the position. Burks provides another dangerous pass-catcher for Jalen Hurts to go along with DeVonta Smith and Dallas Goedert.

Yahoo! Sports - Eric Edholm (3/31)

15. Kenny Pickett, QB, Pittsburgh

Boring is for losers. You've seen Pickett mocked to the same 2-3 teams over and over. But the Eagles quietly have done a lot of work on him, and while we would not say the odds are wildly high on this happening, neither are they remote.

Why the heck not? The team has made inquiries to trade for better quarterbacks in the past year, so it wouldn't be stunning to see a big name added to push Jalen Hurts.

16. Jordan Davis, IDL, Georgia

We might have the city of Philadelphia at our doorstep later today. Yes, we realize this is a very un-Eagles-like pick, and sure, their interior D-line is a relative strength. But Davis is a true Halley's Comet prospect, and he can change the way teams attack the Eagles and likely clear lanes for the outside rush.

It's just a thought, anyway, and we don't believe Davis would last too much longer than this anyway.

19. Treylon Burks, WR, Arkansas

Realistically, the preference would be to trade into next year with this pick. But in drafting a QB, the Eagles might be derailing that plan. And no, we're still not going to mock them a linebacker. Burks would give them a different type of receiver and another weapon for ... whoever the QB is.

We personally wouldn't take Burks this high, as much as we like him, but we could see some team maximizing his skill set.

ESPN - Mike Tannenbaum (3/30)

15. Devin Lloyd, LB, Utah

April 28 would be a fun night to be the Eagles' GM. Three picks inside the top 20, starting here! Philadelphia hasn't taken a first-round linebacker in almost a decade, but Lloyd can be a do-it-all player in the middle of the Eagles' defense. He's a three-down defender who plays faster than his 4.66-second time in the 40-yard dash suggests.

16. Kenyon Green, IOL, Texas A&M

I love this guy's versatility. He has at least 100 snaps at four different positions along the offensive line, and he's capable of playing the fifth (center). Center Jason Kelce re-signed but for only a year, and guard Brandon Brooks just retired, so the Eagles could use a player like Green.

19. Trent McDuffie, CB, Washington

So I already got the Eagles a linebacker in Lloyd and a lineman in Green. Now I'm focusing on cornerback, where Philly needs a starter opposite Darius Slay. The Eagles tied for the worst completion percentage against in 2021, allowing opponents to connect on nearly 70% of their attempts. But McDuffie is shutdown material. He allowed just 3.8 yards per pass attempt thrown his way last season, which tied for the third-best number in college football, and he can play in man or zone schemes.

NFL.com - Bucky Brooks (3/29)

15. Chris Olave, WR, Ohio State

Possessing multiple first-round picks, the Eagles could use one to upgrade their receiver corps with a polished route runner who boasts big-play potential.

16. Kyler Gordon, CB, Washington

The Eagles need more speed and athleticism in the defensive backfield to handle some of the explosive offenses and receivers around the league. Gordon is a technician with the athleticism, footwork and ball skills to thrive in a man- or zone-based scheme.

19. Tyler Linderbaum, IOL, Iowa

The question of how much longer four-time All-Pro center Jason Kelce will play could prompt the Eagles to add an insurance policy this season. Linderbaum is a technician with the footwork and hand skills to shine at the pivot as a pro.

The Draft Network - Brentley Weissman (3/28)

15. Trent McDuffie, CB, Washington

This is the first of three first-round picks for Howie Roseman. Philadelphia has a need at corner opposite Pro Bowler Darius Slay and they'll look to address that need here with the addition of Trent McDuffie. McDuffie may lack length but he more than makes up for it with his quickness, fluidity, instincts, and toughness. McDuffie is about as clean of a player you'll find in this class and I have no doubt he will be a successful pro.

16. Devonte Wyatt, IDL, Georgia

The team released Fletcher Cox just to bring him back at a more team-friendly cap number. That being said, Cox is on the downside of his career and finding a replacement in the draft makes some sense.

Devonte Wyatt is an explosive and athletic interior rusher who can contribute as a part of a rotation early in his career before he steps in as a full-time starter down the road.

19. Treylon Burks, WR, Arkansas

The Treylon Burks disrespect must come to an end. Sure, he didn't test as well as some of us had thought he would at the combine but that shouldn't affect his grade too much. When you turn on the tape you consistently see Burks separating against top corner talent in the SEC and was a man amongst boys in Arkansas' biggest games. He may be a raw route-runner but he offers outstanding size and catch radius to go with very good ball skills and body control to make contested catches. Burks' skill set would fit in very well playing next to a precision route-runner like DeVonta Smith.

The Athletic - Beat Writer Mock (3/28)

15. George Karlaftis, EDGE, Purdue

Bo Wulf: The signing of Haason Reddick should help a pass rush that finished 31st in sack rate in 2021, but the Eagles still need long-term help at defensive end. Pair that with Howie Roseman's long-displayed team-building philosophy of building through the trenches and it's easy to understand why it feels like a fait accompli that the Eagles will draft an edge player with at least one of their first-round picks.

Karlaftis is the best one left on the board and would provide an interesting contrast of styles with Josh Sweat. At 6-4, 266 pounds, he's more strong than bendy. But even after a relatively uninspiring 4.5-sack season as a junior, he's young and should theoretically have a high floor. For a team with only 34-year-old Brandon Graham and 2021 sixth-round pick Tarron Jackson at defensive end alongside Sweat and Reddick, that's just fine.

Brugler: Eagles fans are probably bored with the "Karlaftis to the Eagles" projections in mock drafts, but it is happening so frequently because it makes sense. It fills an important need and fits what Howie Roseman likes to attack in the draft. Karlaftis is a really talented pass rusher. He isn't the longest or most twitchy athlete, but he is explosive with the handwork and maniacal effort that should lead to early production.

16. Jordan Davis, IDL, Georgia

Wulf: The Eagles would love to maneuver around the draft board a bit, but there are no takers in this exercise, so they stick with Roseman's bread and butter. Roseman has made 10 first-round draft picks during his tenure as general manager and has never deviated from the positions he prioritizes most: quarterback, wide receiver, offensive line and defensive line. With three picks this year, maybe that will finally change, but not with someone like Davis -- who presents the kind of upside that seems unrealistic -- on the board.

At 6-6, 341 pounds, Davis ran a 4.78-second 40-yard dash with a 99th-percentile broad jump. The question is whether he'll be able to do more than stop the run at the next level. With the Eagles, he would rotate initially with Fletcher Cox, Javon Hargrave and promising second-year player Milton Williams. Until Cox leaves next offseason, that's as scary a group of defensive tackles as you'll find. Aside from at Georgia, at least.

Brugler: The Eagles met with Davis at the combine and at his pro day, and they will bring him to Philadelphia for a 30 visit. Obviously, the interest is there. We know the Eagles prioritize the trenches in the draft, and even though I still think there are questions about Davis sustaining his energy on a higher snap count, he is a dominant run defender and would fit well within the Eagles' scheme.

19. Treylon Burks, WR, Arkansas

Zach Berman: A wide receiver for the third year in a row? The Eagles still have a need at the position, and this would represent good value. Burks' combine testing won't be the reason he's a first-round pick, but it's hard to argue with standout production in the SEC (66 catches, 1,104 yards, 11 touchdowns last season) and the size (6-foot-2, 225 pounds) and versatility to be used around the formation.

Comparisons to Deebo Samuel and A.J. Brown might be ambitious. Then again, if this pick hits, it would make Eagles fans forget missing on Jalen Reagor and J.J. Arcega-Whiteside in recent years. A linebacker (Devin Lloyd, Nakobe Dean) or cornerback (Andrew Booth Jr.) could also be sensible options based on how the board has fallen, and it's hard to ignore Kenny Pickett's presence with the Eagles on the clock. Philadelphia would also hope a trade market generates for one of its picks. Regardless, Burks would be a good outcome for a team that still needs weapons on offense.

Brugler: Although the Eagles weren't able to entice any trade action in this mock, the chances of them picking at 15, 16, and 19 are slim to none. Nonetheless, Burks at 19 is a sensible move as the Eagles look to bolster their passing production with a quarterback they hope can be the long-term future. No, he didn't test as expected at the combine, but no one in the SEC had more 20-plus-yard catches last year and his versatility would be an interesting wrinkle in Sirianni's offense.

PFF - Austin Gayle (3/28)

15. Jermaine Johnson, EDGE, Florida State

Johnson's rise up draft boards has been significant -- at least from the media's perspective -- following standout performances at the 2022 Reese's Senior Bowl and NFL Scouting Combine. He was highlighted as one of the top performers through the first two days of practice in Mobile and tested out at the 90th percentile or better in the 40-yard dash (4.58s), 10-yard split (1.55s) and broad jump (125") at the combine.

Even though Philadelphia will have Brandon Graham, Derek Barnett and Josh Sweat all returning in 2022, Johnson should be viewed as an upgrade over Barnett and Sweat (if not all three players). Graham turns 34 years old in April and is coming off a torn Achilles, while Sweat and Barnett both failed to crack the top 25 in terms of PFF pass-rushing grade in 2021.

16. Devonte Wyatt, IDL, Georgia

Wyatt cleared the 80th percentile in the 10-yard split (1.66s), 40-yard dash (4.77s) and broad jump (111") at the 2022 NFL Scouting Combine. He also earned a career-high 89.8 PFF grade and ranked in the 95th percentile for PFF pass-rushing grade on true pass sets. He and Johnson should dramatically improve the Eagles' ability to get after the passer and set them up for long-term success as Graham and Fletcher Cox get older.

19. Devin Lloyd, LB, Utah

Lloyd was a heat-seeking missile and an every-down impact player for the Utes. He earned a 91.1 PFF grade as one of college football's top defenders in 2021. He steps in as an immediate difference-maker for an Eagles defense without any high-end talent at off-ball linebacker.
