Completely revamped, and better than before. Let me know what yous think...

Free Agency
Cut/Not Resigned: Vince Young, Ronnie Brown, Steve Smith, Winston Justice, Victor Abiamari, Juqua Parker, Jamall Jackson, Chad Hall,and any player not included in the depth chart- No need to explain why certain players are cut, after all the mocks people catch the drift, but I do see certain players staying until TC and being cut last minute such as a Victor Abiamiri or Juqua Parker.

Franchise Tag- D-Jack signs the tag and appears to be apart of the 2012-2013 roster, eventually signed long-term. Too good to let go.

Extended Contracts-

-Lesean McCoy: Obviously deserves it, dude's a beast, the most consistent and thrilling player on the team. I like the deal everybody else has in place with the 5 year extension and major signing bonus so I'll stick with that

-Evan Mathis- signed to a 4 yr deal, 24mill/ 10mill guarenteed. Well deserved, and if he hits an open market I believe this is the price he will cost.

- Owen Schmidt- Solid starting FB, 1 yr 2million

--Derik Landri + Antonio Dixon- We bring back both DT's to help provide depth to the d-line. Landri played very well after we re-signed him mid-season and the once promising dixon is given another shot. Both players signed to 1yr deals worth up to 2million a piece

- King Dunlap- Brought back for depth, skilled enough to start 2yrs 3mill (2mill guarenteed)

Players Added:

- Plaxico Burress- A great addition for our redzone O, I can see plax having similar stats to last year w/ the Jets. His presence alone on the field helps Vick target other wr's and brings a physicallity that our wr's lack as is. Kind of skeptical about his age but after his performance last year, in addition to the time off in prison, I think on an incentive laden deal he can be acquired at the right price, not to mention he wants to be in philly. 2yr deal, w/ team option to opt out of 2nd year. I can see anywhere from 1.5mill a year to 3 w/ incentives.

-Chris Chamberlin- Helps our thin LB core out and can battle for the starting SAM spot. Ultimately, he's a special teams ace and can provide adequate depth, possibly starting in spot duty. 3yr deal 5mill (2mill guarenteed)

-Israel Idonije- Flexible player, can play inside and outside, with solid size at 6'6'' and 275lbs. Garnered 8sacks back in 2010, hopefully playing in the wide-9 he can become an even better pass rusher while setting the edge in run support. He comes here to win and being near 32 yrs of age, the Eagles sign him for cheap. 4yr deal 12mill (3mill guarenteed).

- London Fletcher- I've been contemplating on whether or not Fletcher would be a good fit in the wide-9, but he's a straight fball player. He's succeeded in this league for a very long time now, he's pushing 37 or 38 yrs in age but he's still getting it done. Fletcher brings leadership and all the tangibles that the birds lacked last yr. I see this being his last stint in the nfl and he's signed to win a superbowl. 4yr deal 18mill( 6mill guarenteed)

-Jim Leonard- I saw this signing in a previous mock and liked it but Leonard's brought in to help lead the younger safeties and hopefully his work ethic rubs off on the whole secondary. In a perfect world, I would have the Eagles signing a more physical vet than the undersized Leonard to toughen up Nate Allen, but he comes cheap on a 1 yr deal with the intentions to re-prove himself. 1yr- 1mill( if he's cut he's guarenteed half of this 500k/ but if he starts and has over 3 int's he recieves an additional 1mill)

-Jeff Saturday- Howard Mudd guy, joins the Eagles knowing he's the main interior backup. Helps Kelce develop while he's here.
1 yr deal worth 2mill guarenteed

- Justin Forsett- Solid addition to the RB's, battles Lewis for the backup position and can be a great substitute on 3rd down if Shady's tired. 2yr deal 4mill ( 1.5 guarenteed)


TRADES:

-Both Asante Samuel and Mike Patterson are traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for a 3rd round pick this yr and a conditional 2-4th next yr. Fills two holes of the bucs and after asante's deal is restructured the Bucs accept the deal.

Draft
-2012 picks:
1.15, 2.14, 2.19 (from ARI), 3.5(from TB), 3.13,4.19, 5.18, 6.17, 6.25 (from DEN), 6.31 (from NE)
That gives the Eagles 10 picks to manuever around the draft with, which ultimately lands the Eagles 7-8 quality players to fill positional needs.

Eagles trade 15th overall to the Chargers for the 18th overall and pick 16 in the 3rd round. The Chargers jump ahead of the jets to grab Luke Kuechly, and the Eagles add another solid 3rd round pick while targeting the player they wanted all along.

Round 1 Pick 18- The Eagles Select DT Fletcher Cox Mississippi State

After trading Mike Patterson, the Eagles fill a hole at DT and find a solid replacement in the draft who can start from day 1. After Brockers and Poe are selected before the Eagles selection they trade down w/ the Chargers and still acquire the 3rd best DT on the board. Cox has good size to stop the run and is athletic enough to be a solid pass rusher at the next level. Accounted for 5 sacks his sr yr, the eagles hope that translates to his rookie season alongside jenkins.


Round 2 pick 14(from Chargers)- The Philadelphia Eagles select DE Vinny Curry Marshall

Curry adds to an already explosive pass rush and can line up in multiple positions from any nickel backer position to DE to rush the passer. Towards the end of the season the Eagles did this alot w/ Cole and Babin and they were very successful. It's a passing league now and you can't have enough pass rushers. This also solidifies a starting DE will be in place by the time Babin's done, in case Graham doesn't pan out. Curry has good size 6'3 around 260, he doesn't need to bulk up as most de's we usually go for.
Round 2 Pick 19- The Eagles select OLB Shea McClellin BSU

McClellin is available after the top 3 OLB's are taken and the Eagles snag a player that challenges for a starting spot from day 1 and allows the Eagles to concentrate on other positions later in the draft. What once was a weak link on our D, is now a group of positions up for grabs with alot of talented guys. McClellin is versatile and posted impressive numbers in the 40 and all the lateral LB drills he performed in, ranking 4th out of 29 total OLB's. Add that w/ his size, 6'3'' 260lbs, and the Eagles find a SAM backer on downs 1 and 2 and another pass rusher on 3rd down.


Round 3 pick 5- The Philadelphia Eagles select CB Leonard Johnson Iowa
It was between Johnson and Robinson but Johnson brings a mentality that can only help our non-physical secondary. Can battle DRC for the 2nd starting Corner spot and provides insurance for the future. Johnson's extremely physical and can press, the only downfall is his size, but standing at 5'10" 196lbs he's still bigger than the avg corner.

Round 3 pick 13- The Philadelpha Eagles select OT Nate Potter BSU
With the limited talent available in FA at OT, this may be too early to select Potter, but w/ the lack of talent this yr in FA the eagles play it safe and snag their guy at T, it gives Mudd a lenky Tackle to work with and hopefully develop to be a swing tackle. Replaces King Dunlap.

Round 4 Pick 19- The Philadelphia Eagles select Brian Linthicum MSU
The Eagles select Linthicum w/ the intentions on battling Harbor for the #2 TE spot. Linthicum possess good hands and is an athletic TE w/ an all around solid game, can block and run the slot route tree. Standing at 6'4'' and 250lbs, he has room to bulk up and add 10lbs to his frame.

Round 5 Pick 18- The Philadelphia Eagles select RB/WR/R Chris Rainey Florida

Rainey is a popular mid-round selection for most people in this forum, so I figured he would be a nice addition with 4th round value. His main duties will be returning kicks, but Andy loves his gadget players and Rainey may have a few formations he's in for a reverse, gadget run, etc.


Round 6 Pick 17 is traded for 5th rounder next yr w/ the NE patriots

Round 6 Pick 25- The Philadelpha Eagles select WR Garell Robinson Arizona State

Bigger possession wr standing at 6'3'' comes in and battles for a spot on the roster.

Round 6 Pick 31- The Philadelphia Eagles select OLB Tank Carder TCU
A bit undersized but Andy takes a flyer on him late. Very similar to Akeem Jordan and Moise Fokou. Intentions here w/ this pick is to add competition to the LB core

Don't like the draft at all. This was hilarious:

Lol Didn't notice that, I meant to say he's good enough to start elsewhere but stays and provides us decent depth at Tackle.

What exactly don't you like about the draft?

Pretty much everything, starting with our first 2 picks on the D-line.. why do we need to go D-line WHATSOEVER with our first two picks. That alone killed it for me really.

For what its worth, I love the Plax signing.

Jeff Saturday will be a starting C in the NFL next year.
Colts could bring him back or NE or Mia could get him just to name a few.
Especially Miami if Peyton signs there than he could take jeff with him and they could move pouncey to his more natural position of RG.

This is what will almost definitely happen with Saturday IMO. Peyton goes to Miami, so does Wayne and Saturday, at least.

Only thing I will say about FA is that if you sign Fletcher, you need to draft a MIKE prospect at some point.

Love the Cox pick. I think he would beast at the 3 tech under Washburn. He rotates in for Jenkins when the 2nd line plays and then takes over in a year or 2.

I'm kind of meh on Curry. He could be good, but I don't know if he has the quick first step needed for the Wide 9. You do need to fix your description though as you're describing a CB.

Really like the Shea McClellin pick. He is raw now, but I think he could develop into a very good SAM

Like Potter, but 1) He's become a bit of a cliche pick for ZBS teams and 2) i think you went after him a touch early.

Really like Rainey in the 4th/5th round. He's the guy that could actually succeed at the "gadget" position, plus the Eagles need help in the return game.

I agree with everybody pretty much. You failed to address the LB situation fully, and I am on the Plax bandwagon as well.

I see what everyone's saying about Saturday, especially if Peyton goes to MIA, that would help Pouncy out a ton! BUT it would be nice to see him suit up w/ the Eagles, I wouldn't mind starting him over Kelce actually.


I probably could have drafted another Mike but I think Fletcher has 2 solid yrs left, Luke Kuechly was almost my 1st round pick, but I'd rather draft a starter from day 1 (cox) than a future starter, especially with our win now mentality. Plus the Eagles tend to draft lineman in the 1st rd over any other position,esp. D-line. You can never have enough pass rushers!

I copied and pasted alot of the material from my other mock and placed it under Curry ooops, but thanks for pointing that out Very Happy

^Idk if Cox would start right away.. probably would have to in this scenario, but I doubt he would/should.

If Fletcher has a solid year or 2 left then this is actually the perfect time to draft a potential future starter at MIKE.

Why do you need Cox to start right away? He's best suited to 3 tech. The Eagles rotate their line. Put him behind Jenkins and let him develop while taking 30-40% of the snaps. You still have Landri, Dixon, and Thornton (who it appears you forgot) who are better fits to compete at 1 tech.

I liked 3 things about this

1. Fletcher Cox
2. Extending Shady
3. Resigning Mathis (tad too much $)

Things I didn't like:

Every single free agent
Every draft pick besides Cox and Rainey
Giving Owen Schmidt $2 million Laughing
