2006 Philadelphia Eagles NFL Mock Draft Picks
Linebacker: Keith Adams is still unsigned at the time of publish and it looks like he will not be back. Philadelphia will either need to draft a weak side linebacker to replace Adams or move some personnel around and use Dhani Jones as Adams' replacement and draft a strong side linebacker.
Offensive Tackle: Philadelphia was able to resign John Runyan in the offseason but with Tra Thomas and Todd Herremans both coming off of major injuries time to look at a stud tackle.
Wide Receiver: The Terrell Owens mess is finally over and now the Eagles can look to develop a number 1 for McNabb. Jabar Gaffney is a nice sign but not an elite wide out. Reggie Brown is capable of being one of the leagues best number 2 targets.
I would say the Eagles have about a 70% chance that USC's outstanding tackle Winston Justice will be there at 14 when Philly goes to select a player in the first round. Barring any trades for teams looking to move up and snag Justice, the Eagles will be in a nice position to fill their voids on draft day.
If they get Justice, which would be a perfect scenario due to the deep linebacker class, look for Philadelphia to grab a stud LB in the second round. Players like Maryland's D'Qwell Jackson and UTEP's Thomas Howard and good candidates.
In the third round Philadelphia would be looking to get a solid wide out like Pittsburgh's Greg Lee or Oklahoma's Travis Wilson.
