In my opinion, one of these two players will be the Eagles pick

25 April 2017 DRAFT Eagles News

The NFL Draft kicks off the Thursday. For about two months now, mock drafts have been pouring out, linking the Eagles to new players every day. However, when this whole process started, there were two players who seemed to be the Eagles pick. I have come to a point where I think one of those two players will be the Eagles pick.

If the Eagles are to address the wide receiver position and give Carson Wentz a weapon, they will pick Western Michigan wide receiver, Corey Davis.

When you look at Davis, you see a true number one receiver. He has great route running and has tremendous ball skill. A four-year starter in college, Davis has the experience to become a real stud in the NFL.

His final season at WMU, Davis accumulated 97 receptions for 1,500 and 19 touchdowns. He is a scoring machine and would be a tremendous addition to the Eagles.

One thing to note is that the Eagles are one of just five teams that had Corey Davis in for a visit. The other four are the Titans, Ravens, Browns and Cardinals. Although three of those teams pick before the Eagles, the only other scenario I see him being picked in is with the Cardinals.

And, Les Bowen, a very credible writer believes the Eagles interest is substantial.

If the Eagles are to go the receiver route in round one and make a splash, Davis is going to be that guy.

Now, if the Eagles are to address their biggest need, cornerback, I expect Tre’Davious White to be that guy.

This whole draft process, the Eagles have praised Tre’Davious White. Turron Davenport of EaglesWire wrote a great article on White and in that article, the Eagles praise for White really showed.

“He’s a leader. He’s been ultra productive. He’s tough as nails. He plays nickel, he plays outside, he has ball skills. You can stack his level of production up against any corner in this draft.”

White can play any position asked of him and he can even return kicks. His ability to play all over the field and even on special teams makes him really valuable.

White is not the flashiest pick, however, he addresses the need. But, do not think they are picking him just to pick a cornerback. White is an extremely good football player and will be a great player on this team.

White has his flaws, but he can flat out cover. In a team where the cornerbacks are getting burnt on a daily basis, White will be the star. His ball skill and ability to cover sets him far and beyond the rest.

If the Eagles choose to address the cornerback position and their biggest need, Tre’Davious White will be the pick.
