2012 Philadelphia Eagles Mock Draft: First Round Selection Is……..
After a disappointing 8-8 2011 season, the Philadelphia Eagles possess the 15th overall pick in the 2012 draft. The question is whether or not the Eagles decide to go with a defensive or offensive player. After the way the defense played during certain stretches of the season, the organization should direct their focus on the defensive side of the ball.
The third rated linebacker according to Scouts Inc. is Vontaze Burfict out of Arizona State. At 6’3 250 pounds, Vontaze size, strength, range and athleticism to be an every-down linebacker at the next level. His technique needs improvement, however, Burfict projects well as a NFL starting middle linebacker.
I, for obvious reason, think Vontaze Burfict would be an outstanding pick. His detractors say he is undiciplined. I believe, with the proper coaching and a scheme like the Eagles deploy, Burfict could be a beast. Kuechly is the popular choice. I believe Burfict has more upside.
