Eagles mock draft roundup: Eagles take Quincy Wilson at 14, John Ross in the 2nd round

14 April 2017 DRAFT Eagles News

The NFL draft is less than two weeks away folks! Matt Miller of BleacherReport.com released another mock draft, let’s take a look at who he has the Eagles taking with the first and second round picks.

In Miller’s mock, he has the Eagles taking Florida cornerback Quincy Wilson with the 14th pick and has them taking Washington wide receiver John Ross with the 43rd.

For the most part, I have followed every mock draft posted this offseason and this is the first time I have seen Wilson mocked to the Eagles.

Wilson is a bigger cornerback, standing at 6-1 and weighing in at 211 pounds. He is a prototypical NFL cornerback by his measurables.

Here is a look at his combine numbers.

Arm Length: 32 ¼ inches
Hand Size: 9 5/8 inches
40-yard dash: 4.54
Bench Press: 14 reps
Vertical Jump: 32 inches
Broad Jump: 118 inches
3-Cone Drill: 6.86 seconds
20-Yard Shuttle: 4.02 seconds (Combine Top Performer at CB)

Ben Natan, who writes for Bleeding Green Nation wrote a great article on Wilson. He breaks down his game and thinks he has a mid to late first round grade.

“While the big media guys seem to love Wilson, I think he is the second best cornerback on his own team and there are a few corners who should go before him in the draft. That is not a slight on him, really, rather a testament to how good this class is. In the end, he should make a team very happy as a mid to late first-round pick.”

I am with him on that. In this mock draft, both Lattimore and Conley are off the board. If the Eagles are to take a cornerback in the first round, I think Wilson would be the best one available at that point.

As for John Ross, I do not think he will fall to the Eagles in the second round, but, crazier things have happened. If Ross falls, the Eagles would be stupid not to take him.

I wrote this article on Ross earlier this month. I broke down how he fits the Eagles system, receiving corps and what he adds to the team. Check it out below.

How they will fit the Eagles: Washington WR John Ross
