SKOHRboard's Favorite Eagles Targets in the 2011 NFL Draft

Only Andy Reid and a few very trust-worthy Eagles Coaches, Scouts, and front office people know who they might actually be targeting in this years draft.  But that doesn't stop me from talking about who I'd like to see them take.  I'll assume for this exercise that Free Agency doesn't start today, the day before the Draft, in which case the Eagles would obviously immediately sign Asomugha and trade Kolb for picks in the 1st and 2nd in this draft and the next.  I'm assuming that because if I thought about it my head would explode and that would make typing really really difficult.

Plenty of people think that Right Offensive Tackle is a major need for the Eagles but those people are wrong.  Winston Justice played just fine last year until he was hurt.  What the Eagles need is a Right Guard (which would also help Justice).  Actually I'd place their needs in this order, RCB, RG, LB, S, DE, DT, and finally OT.  As you know, this year's Draft takes place before Free Agency (probably) so more teams will be drafting for need with the intent that the players they select will have to step in and start immediately rather than sit a while to learn and develop.  I really think that focus on drafting for need rather than upside is going to noticeably impact the selections we see teams make this year.  With all of that in mind, let's take a look at who I think the Eagles will be targeting or who I'd like them to be targeting in each round of the draft.

First Round
Jimmy Smith, CB, Colorado
Akeem Ayers, LB, UCLA
Mike Pouncey, OG, Florida
Aldon Smith, DE, Missouri
Ryan Kerrigan, DE, Purdue
Corey Liuget, DT, Illinois

These are the guys that I'd like to see the Eagles target in the First Round.  I think Jimmy Smith is probably their top target but if he isn't there my guess is they take one of these guys or try to trade back into the early Second.  They are in a great position to trade back there too as a few teams who are looking for a QB are there at the top of the Second and with Seattle picking at #25, some of those teams might be looking to jump them in order to grab the QB they want.

Second Round
Ras-I Dowling, CB, Virginia
Brandon Harris, CB, Miami
Martez Wilson, LB, Illinois
Mason Foster, LB, Washington
Rodney Hudson, OG, Florida State
Marvin Austin, DT, UNC

There is a lot of talent in the 2nd Round at both LB and CB which are both positions of need for the Eagles.  Hopefully one of these guys is available when their pick comes up.  I really hope they can grab one of Jimmy Smith, Ras-I Dowling, or Brandon Harris because after those guys the prospects get a little more dicey.  They have to be comfortable with whatever starting CB they get in this draft right away because who knows what they'll be able to get in Free Agency.  (Asomugha!! Fingers crossed)  By the way, even if FA does start tonight or tomorrow and they can get Nnamdi, I still think they should nab a top CB because let's face it both he and Samuel are pushing that 30 years old barrier that Reid dislikes so much.

Third Round
Bruce Carter, LB, UNC
Clint Boling, OG, Georgia
Randall Cobb, WR, Kentucky
Rahim Moore, S, UCLA
Taiwan Jones, RB, Eastern Washington
Deunta Williams, S, UNC
Christian Ballard, DE, Iowa
Nate Irving, LB, NC State

Look at all those guys just hanging around there!  If I could have my pickings, I'd take all of them.  Well maybe just one of the Safeties but that right there would be a fantastic draft.  Two stud LBs, a dependable and versatile Lineman, a Swiss-Army Back, the fastest RB prospect since Chris Johnson, and a super athletic DE/DT (with some brand new character concerns!).

Fourth Round
Lawrence Wilson, LB, UConn
Dontay Moch, LB, Nevada
DeMarcus Love, OG, Mississippi, State
Daniel Thomas, RB, Kansas State
Jaiquawn Jarrett, S, Temple
Stephen Schilling, OG, Michigan

Fifth Round
Will Rackley, OG, Lehigh
Jah Reid, OT, USF
Kendall Hunter, RB, Oklahoma State
Shareece Wright, CB, USC
Ross Homan, LB, Ohio State
Jarrard Tarrant, S, Georgia Tech
Jordan Cameron, TE, USC
Brandon Fusco, C, Slippery Rock

Sixth Round
The Eagles have no picks in this round.

Seventh Round
Greg Romeus, DE, Pittsburgh
Mark Legree, S, Appalachian State
De'Rell Scott, RB, Maryland
Brian Rolle, LB, Ohio State
Alex Green, RB, Hawaii
Kris O'Dowd, C, USC
Karl Klug, DT, Iowa
Cecil Shorts, WR, Mount Union
Roy Helu, RB, Nebraska
Robert Sands, S, West Virginia

The Fourth through Seventh Rounds all get a little more tricky to figure out but I've listed the guys that I particularly liked.  Some of them are under-rated, some have injury concerns, and some are small school guys who just haven't gotten the same big time experience that their early round counterparts have.  However, that doesn't mean that they can't play football very very well.

Who would you like to see the Eagles choose over the next three days?
