Welcome back to our 7-round NFL Mock Draft Simulation! This weekly article will explore different potential paths the Philadelphia Eagles could take in the upcoming 2024 NFL Draft. With the NFL combine just around the corner, draft boards are on the verge of being shaken up by days of athletic testing. This week’s installment could see significant changes as the consensus shifts on various players. Let’s take a look at a potential draft scenario where the Eagles focus heavily on defense.

Round 1, Pick 22 – Dallas Turner, Edge, Alabama
At pick 22, selecting Dallas Turner would be a steal for the Eagles. Turner is a fast and agile edge rusher who has evolved into a well-rounded defender in his final season at Alabama. Despite his slightly lighter weight for an edge rusher, around 250 pounds, Turner has the potential to be a three-down defender in Vic Fangio’s defense as an outside linebacker.

Round 2, Pick 50 – Khyree Jackson, Cornerback, Oregon
The Eagles have always prioritized the cornerback position. After last season exposed weaknesses in the cornerback group due to injuries and regression, adding a young, athletic cornerback like Khyree Jackson, who possesses great size and potential as an outside defender, would provide promise for the Eagles’ secondary alongside Kelee Ringo.

Round 2, Pick 54 – Kamren Kinchens, Safety, Miami
Safety is a position that will need attention this offseason. With uncertainties surrounding Sydney Brown’s recovery and Reed Blankenship’s injury history, Kinchens brings versatility and athleticism to the safety position. He can play deep or close to the line of scrimmage, providing the Eagles with flexibility in their defensive schemes.

Round 3, Pick 97 – Marist Liufau, Linebacker, Notre Dame
Linebacker is another area of need for the Eagles, and Marist Liufau could be a good fit in Vic Fangio’s defense. Liufau’s aggressive playing style, football IQ, and ability to blitz make him a valuable addition as an inside linebacker in a 3-4 alignment. He also showcases skills in short-area coverage, making him a potential three-down linebacker for the Eagles.

Round 4, Pick 137 – Zak Zinter, Guard, Michigan
Despite a late-season injury, Zak Zinter is considered a plug-and-play offensive lineman who could solidify the guard position for the Eagles. With uncertainty surrounding Jason Kelce’s future, Zinter’s versatility and talent make him a valuable addition to the offensive line, providing competition at the right guard spot.

Round 5, Pick 163 – Jaheim Bell, Tight End, Florida State
Jaheim Bell offers speed and versatility as a late-round tight end option for the Eagles. With his athleticism, Bell could serve as an H-Back in the Eagles’ new offensive scheme, adding a dynamic element to the team’s passing game.

Round 5, Pick 172 – Cody Schrader, Running Back, Missouri
Running back is a position of need for the Eagles, and Cody Schrader presents a valuable option in the draft. Schrader’s vision, hard running style, and pass-catching ability make him a potential contributor to the Eagles’ offense, providing depth and competition in the backfield.

Round 5, Pick 178 – Jaylin Simpson, Safety, Auburn
Jaylin Simpson’s hard-nosed playing style and versatility make him an attractive pick for the Eagles in the fifth round. With the ability to line up all over the field, Simpson could add depth and playmaking ability to the Eagles’ secondary.

Round 7, Pick 243 – Bryson Nesbit, Wide Receiver, North Carolina
As the Eagles look to address the hole at WR3, Bryson Nesbit could be a valuable depth player with the potential to compete for playing time. With his size and skill set, Nesbit could complement AJ Brown and DeVonta Smith, providing additional weapons for the Eagles’ receiving corps.

Overall, this defense-heavy draft simulation presents the Eagles with the opportunity to address key areas of need and add talented playmakers to their roster. Stay tuned for more mock draft simulations as we count down to the 2024 NFL Draft.
