Wilson has been stellar in 2020 following an injury-riddled 2019 season. He is catching a lot of buzz in 2020 due to his high level of play. But the competition he has faced is not on the level of Lawrence or Justin Fields, and that’s is a reason we are not as high on him, though he is in our top 10.
Other Considerations If Available:
BYU QB Zach Wilson or Ohio State QB Justin Fields or Alabama WR DeVonta Smith or Trade Up or Trade Back
The Eagles could go a lot of different ways with this pick; they could satisfy their need at WR by drafting Ja'Marr Chase, they could fulfill a significant need at LB and go with Penn State's Micah Parson's, or they could ultimately draft a QB. Everything will hinge on a Carson Wentz trade, which appears inevitable. But then you have Jaylen Hurts in the mix. Our first mock draft back in January had the Eagles taking Zach Wilson, but Zach Wilson's projection to go earlier up to this point throws a wrench into the idea of Philly grabbing one of the top three signal-callers available. If Wilson falls to the Eagles, they may not have a choice but to go with Wilson. The Eagles are also in dire need of help in their secondary. If other scenarios play out with potential QB trades (Deshaun to the Jets), it will provide the Eagles with a shot at getting one of either Fields or Wilson. Since we are re-inventing our first mock draft and developing our 2nd mock by examining all of the variables, we will assume Wilson is off the board. What will the Eagles do?
