The draft is only a day away, therefore this mock draft will be based on all the rumors/information that has been released in the last couple days.
Round 1 Pick 13 (Picks 21,103, future 2nd to SF): CeeDee Lamb WR Oklahoma 6’2 198 lbs
This past week the rumors have been going around that Howie Roseman is looking to wheel and deal his way up in the draft for a WR1. This move and selection would surely determine that Howie is serious about surrounding Carson Wentz with the best weapons as possible. Ceedee Lamb was one of the most productive receivers in the nation in 2019. He finished the season catching 1327 total receiving yards, averaging 21.4 yards per catch, and hauling in 14 receiving touchdowns. The combination of size, speed, and route running is very rare to come by. Probably the strongest in the draft in terms of yards after the catch. He’s been given pro comparisons such as Deandre Hopkins and Devante Adams. I believe he will live up to the hype, and there hasn’t been even the slightest sign that he wont.
Round 2 Pick 53: Lloyd Cushenberry III C LSU 6’3 312 lbs

Lloyd Cushenberry III in my opinion is the best center in the draft. For the kid’s size, he is very athletic and flexible. He very easily gets to the second level and in open space for the screen play and outside running plays. That’s one trait Doug Pederson loves from his offensive linemen. Not to mention he’s a bully as seen in the video above.
Round 4 Pick 127: Bradlee Anae DE Utah 6’3 257
— GoUtahUtes (@UtahUteFans) October 7, 2018
Come tomorrow, if Bradlee Anae is sitting at pick 127 the Eagles have to strike. Recent mock drafts have him falling to the fourth round due to his 40 time and agility drills, but if you turn on the tape he is relentless going after the quarterback. Anae has a high motor and rarely ever gives up on a play, a trait Jimbo Schwartz loves from his players. Hand usage is by far his strongest attribute. His initial quickness off the ball combined with his cross chop/club rip can be seen executed to perfection on his tape numerous times.
Round 4 Pick 145: Justin Strnad LB Wake Forest 6’3 238 lbs
— Justin Strnad (@jsgarbs) April 17, 2020
Justin Strnad is one of my top sleepers in the draft. Dude flies all over the field and is always around the ball. Has great potential as a sideline to sideline linebacker in the NFL. Smoothly athletic with fluid hips. First step and good anticipation makes him a weapon as a blitzer. Problems here and there shedding blocks, but with time and patience under Jimbo Schwartz he is a potential starter for the birds.
Round 4 Pick 146: Harrison Hand CB Temple 5’11 197 lbs
— CBS Sports Network (@CBSSportsNet) September 14, 2019
If there is one word to describe Harrison Hand it is scrappy. He competes every snap. Ball skills are very good. Has a quick trigger to track down the quick pass game or a runner coming to his side on the field. Not a strong man to man defender but he shines in shallow zone schemes. Considered a ‘thumper” for a corner. Could potentially be a ST standout. Only real knock on him is tackling technique.
Round 5 Pick 168: James Proche SMU WR 5’11 201 lbs
James Proche, WR, SMU-
– Ridiculous hands
– Adjusting/Contested catches
– Slot WR at the next level
– Toughness over the MOF
– Smart route runner
– Competitive toughness
– Play maker
– Understands leverage through stem
– Quickness on releases#NFLDraft pic.twitter.com/X0DMPn5tiz

Best hands in the draft…….. YEA I SAID IT!!! I am not the only one who thinks so either.
Best hands in the 2020 NFL Draft? In my opinion, James Proche (SMU)
— Daniel Jeremiah (@MoveTheSticks) March 30, 2020
James Proche makes circus catch after circus catch. As far as the route tree, he knows how to get open. Contested catches don’t really give him much of an issue either. Not much of a yac guy. Tends to either get taken down immediately after the catch or he’s wide open. Not a speed demon, but works his way open. Love his “my ball” mentality. Proche will fight for every 50/50 ball coming his way. Projected as an NFL slot man.
Round 6 Pick 190: Benito Jones DT Ole Miss 6’1 316 lbs

Ahhhhhhh, here we are with the final pick of the 2020 eagles only mock draft. This deep in the draft is usually about depth so why not stack up the most loaded position the Eagles have. Benito Jones is just a bull. He is as strong as they come. Big time hand fighter, doesn’t seem to phase him too often. When Jones gets a straight line towards the quarter back he’s a force. Does have poor lateral movement and isn’t very athletic or explosive. Tends to get beat when the oline gets shifted to a certain side of the field.
That wraps up this Draft day eve Eagles only mock draft. Comment negative or positive thoughts on the picks.
