We’re just hours away from the 2023 NFL draft, where the Philadelphia Eagles are gearing up to welcome a new crop of players to the roster.
With the night finally upon us, here’s the Eagles Wire’s final seven-round mock ahead of Thursday night’s draft kickoff.
11. Jalen Carter DT Georgia
Philadelphia acquires a 2024 second-round pick from the Titans, who move up one spot to select Georgia All-American offensive tackle, Broderick Jones.
The Eagles still get their man, selecting the explosive Jalen Carter to pair with college teammate Jordan Davis for years to come.
30. Jahmyr Gibbs RB Alabama
We pass on Bijan Robinson but potentially land the draft’s best running back in Jahmyr Gibbs.
62. Julius Brents CB Kansas State
The Kansas State star had a Top 30 visit with Philadelphia.
Brents is an All-Big-12 cornerback who started all 27 games in his two years at K-State after transferring from Iowa and had 45 tackles and four interceptions with eight passes defended as a senior.
94. Blake Freeland OT BYU
A mobile, versatile offensive tackle, Freeland could be a player to watch in the second and third rounds.
Freeland started 41 games for the Cougars over four seasons, and at 6-foot-8 and 302 pounds, he only allowed one sack in 2022.
219. Nick Herbig EDGE Wisconsin
The younger brother of former Eagles offensive guard Nate Herbig, Nick is a three-year starter as a 3-4 outside linebacker at Wisconsin.
Herbig lacks the size and strength to play a conventional linebacker role but could slide right behind Haason Reddick or Josh Sweat as a TJ Watt-style player in the pass rush rotation.
248. Brodric Martin DT Western Kentucky
A colossal nose tackle standing 6’5, 337; Martin logged 62 tackles and four sacks over the last two seasons (26 games) at Western Kentucky after transferring from North Alabama.
