Being Philly based, many of our employees are die hard Eagles fans. And with the NFL Draft taking place later this week on the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, us Birds fans want to see our city shine.
With off-season additions (and departures), which rookie should the Eagles add to their lineup? Well, we asked some of our most die hard fans and we netted out with these three guys we think will be difference makers at that #14 slot.
Rueben Foster (LB)
One of the SEC’s star linebackers has proved to be one of the top defensive players in the draft. There is no doubt he would help the birds sure up the middle of the field (can you imagine him and Hicks together?) The question is, will he still be there at 14?
Tre’Davious White (CB)
While guys like Lattimore and Humphrey are potentially better cornerbacks, the reality is they’ll be gone at #14. Next best option, Tre’Davious White. He’s got exceptional footwork and has the ability to play press coverage on some of the leagues best wideouts. The birds are in desperate need of a true No.1 corner to compete against the OBJ’s and Dez Bryant’s of the NFC East. However, due to his size, there are some concerns with his ability to play the slot.
Dalvin Cook (RB)
Without a doubt one of the best running backs to ever come out of FSU, Dalvin Cook has shifty feet and runaway speed. Without a true number one RB, the Eagles without a doubt need to draft one, but there’s a chance Dalvin might slip to the late 2nd round.
And with that, the #14 pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, the Philadelphia Eagles select…
