The Philadelphia Eagles added depth during free agency, but Philadelphia still needs to improve their team.
The release of DeSean Jackson prompted the Eagles to take a wide receiver early in the Draft. Brandin Cooks brings speed and quickness to the Eagles' offense, and he can help with the loss of Jackson.
Lamarcus Joyner is a multi-dimensional DB who can play both safety and cornerback. His size (5-foot-8) is deceiving, because Joyner plays with physicality and he fits what the Eagles are looking for in a DB.
This pick hasn't changed from the first mock, but Marcus Smiths' value is high. He will give the Eagles that pass rush option they have been searching for this offseason.
Not a big surprise here, if De'Anthony Thomas is on the board at this point in the Draft, the Eagles would be foolish not to select him. Thomas will complement Cooks, and the two will be instrumental in the Eagles' offense.
DeAndre Coleman is a massive man at 6-foot-5, 314 pounds, and would see time at end and tackle for Philadelphia. Coleman possesses quickness to rush the pass and brute strength to stop the run.
Chip Kelly is familiar with Avery Patterson, and the safety who is a tad undersized at 5-foot-9 will contribute on special teams for Philadelphia as a rookie.
