And with the #53 Pick in the Arrowhead Pride Community Mock Draft, the Philadelphia Eagles Select...


Pittsburgh RB LeSean McCoy

Chiefsfan717 with the pick...

The Eagles are caught scratching their heads for a third time in the AP draft!!! And no, not for a bad reason, but for the simple reason that 'their' guy was (some way/some how) on the board again! Lesean "Shady" McCoy is yet another steal for the Birds at #53!

First of all, let me state that with the recent trade that allowed the Eagles to acquire Jason Peters from the Bills for the 28th pick, the Eagles obviously wouldn't have taken Eben Britton in the first round. In my view they still go with Pettigrew or (possibly Moreno) at #21, and without that second 1st rounder (and no more need on the offensive line), I could see them going defense with their second rounder.

But for the sake of our AP mock draft which has the Eagles at #21, #28, and #53, you could not ask for a better first 3 picks in terms of need and value! This is without an A+++ draft for the Eagles! Pettigrew, Britton, and Shady are all very capable of being picked a bit higher than what they were.

A quick glimpse to why 'Shady' is the pick here:

1. Westbrook will someday have to unlace the cleats! The Eagles find a gem here in the 2nd round as Westbrook's heir apparent. Scout's at Pittsburg's pro-day immediately made comparisons to Shady and Westbrook in the passing game! He is a perfect fit for the west coast system, and he can also pile up carries as he has done at both Bishop McDevitt High School and The University of Pitt.

2. It would be realistic to say that chances are the Eagles go with a defensive player with one of their first 3 picks, but this scenario is just too good to be true! There is NOOOO Way they would pass up McCoy if he were to drop to them here (And I really don't think he will). Recent reports say the Eagles like Moreno. With Moreno gone, Shady is the next best thing (in comparing styles), and IMO will be a better pro. This system is perfect for him, especially with his vision and ability to use mammoth offensive lineman (See Jeff Otah). The Eagles line is the heaviest, and now possibly the best in the league.

3. Lastly, Shady is going to produce more than your typical 53rd pick. His absence at the combine and weak (measurable) portion of his pro-day had his stock take a huge fall. I'm more of a 'tape-before-measurable' type of guy. And this guy's tape does not lie!!! A beast in both high school and college, Shady's NFL career will be nothing short of the success he's had in his past!

Round 1 is here.
