The Philadelphia Eagles have a lot to be excited about as we head into NFL Draft season, most notably their three first-round picks. With an opportunity to make major improvements to an already-talented roster, Eagles fans will love Todd McShay's latest 2022 NFL Mock Draft ESPN.
McShay tabs Philadelphia to land a couple major steals, at No. 15 in the form of Utah linebacker Devin Lloyd and No. 16 in LSU's Derek Stingley Jr.
Following those steals, McShay also has Philly grabbing Michigan defensive end David Ojabo at No. 19.
Eagles Mock Draft
Lloyd is the highlight of this monster first-round draft performance, mainly because earlier mocks had him going in the top-10. The massive 6-foot-3, 235 pound linebacker is easily the top linebacker prospect in this class with playmaking ability from sideline to sideline versatility defending both the pass and the run. He racked up 111 tackles, 8 sacks and 4 interceptions during his junior campaign.
Stingley Jr. is another intriguing pick at No. 16. Back-to-back inconsistent seasons in 2020 and 2021, in part due to injury, led to his stock falling. But he's still considered a potential shutdown corner after tallying 6 interceptions and 38 tackles in 2019.
Ojabo showed off his physical toolset in 2021, racking up 35 tackles, 11 sacks and 5 forced fumbles. He only has one year of experience starting for Michigan and scouts believe there's even more untapped potential with this athletic pass-rusher.
Philadelphia will look to improve their +4000 odds (T-18th) to win Super Bowl 57 on FanDuel Sportsbook, and a successful draft should go a long way in helping that cause.
