Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay both have the Philadelphia Eagles selecting a cornerback and a hybrid running back/receiver in the first two rounds of the 2017 NFL draft, but differ on the approach.

The ESPN NFL draft analysts released a dueling two-round mock draft on Wednesday. Kiper has the Eagles taking Ohio State cornerback Gareon Conley with the 14th overall pick, and Conley’s collegiate teammate, Curtis Samuel, in Round 2. Samuel (5-foot-11, 196 pounds) did a little bit of everything during his three years with the Buckeyes. He rushed for close to 800 yards last year (7.9 yards per carry) and eight touchdowns and added 74 receptions for 865 yards with seven TDs.

The Philadelphia Eagles desperately need a cornerback (two, actually). In Richard Sherman, they would be getting one of the best in the sport. As ESPN Seahawks beat reporter Sheil Kapadia points out, Sherman has never missed a game in his six-year career. He has averaged an eye-popping 15 passes defensed per season over that time, and his 30 interceptions since entering the league are 10 more than any other cornerback.

It’s easy to see why some Eagles fans’ ears perked up when word came out that the Seahawks have had trade talks involving the four-time Pro Bowler.

In less than three weeks, the 2017 NFL draft will be at full tilt in Philadelphia. Hundreds of thousands of fans are expected to fill the Benjamin Franklin Parkway over the course of the three-day event, a number of them Eagles faithful who will be in full throat when the host team gets on the clock.

What name will they hear called out?

After running through various scenarios, this much seems clear: They’ll have a chance at getting a real difference-maker at No. 14, almost regardless of how the first 13 picks play out. Here is one man’s opinion on the top three options should they fall to the Eagles in Round 1:

After a divisional-round loss to the Carolina Panthers in January 2016, cornerback Richard Sherman was asked if the Seattle Seahawks were still a team on the rise.

“A hundred percent. Because we’re still young,” Sherman said without hesitating.

“We’ve got a young core. I think people have been astounded by what we’ve been able to do in our young careers, but we’re far from done. Guys are just entering their prime. And we’re going to be special for a long time.”

We’re in the position now, after two months of silence, to truly get our engines revved up at the thought of the 2017 Eagles season. What are they planning to do with a roster that won seven games last season? What is the plan they have put in place since the season ended with a win over the Dallas Cowboys?

The Eagles’ brain trust is in Indianapolis at the NFL Combine, and the workload is heavy. The Eagles want to visit with as many players as they can – teams are permitted to have 60 interviews with prospects, and coaches are able to have informal conversations with players along the way, too – and they want to evaluate the apples-to-apples athletic talents in events like the 40-yard dash, the bench press, the three-cone drill as well as the various position-specific events.

Let’s take a spin around the web to see what else has been written about the Philadelphia Eagles:

The Eagles will have a handful of potential trade partners for defensive end Connor Barwin if they decide to go that route, according to Mark Eckel of

“If they cut him, teams will be lining up for him,” a pro personnel man with another NFC team said. “He wouldn’t be out of a job for long. I would think they could trade him and get something back. He has value. His deal this year isn’t that bad.”

DeSean Jackson told ESPN’s Adam Schefter that signing with the Philadelphia Eagles would be a “great story,” but, if he leaves the Washington Redskins in free agency, he wants to play with a “great quarterback.”

Jackson talked to Schefter on his Know Them From Adam podcast. He was asked about possibly returning to Philadelphia, the team he played for during his first six seasons before he was released by then-coach Chip Kelly.

Washington Redskins receiver DeSean Jackson knows skeptics anticipated a short career for him, given his small stature. But, having turned 30 years old in December, and eyeing free agency in a little more than two weeks, Jackson is clear on this: He wants to play a while longer, perhaps as much as six years. And, yes, he’s thought about that happening with Philadelphia.

On Adam Schefter’s latest Know Them From Adam podcast, Jackson discussed free agency, a possible return to the Eagles and how he hasn’t yet lost a step. Jackson also spoke about what it means to have his son and how he thinks about his late father every day. It was the most I’ve heard Jackson speak about that topic, and it was interesting. You can listen to the extended interview here.
