With the NFL Draft two days away, things are becoming clearer when it comes to team’s first round selection. The NFC East may be the worst division in football right now, and three of its four teams have top 10 picks in this year’s draft. Here are the final predictions for the four NFC East teams.
No. 2 pick: Philadelphia Eagles
With the No. 2 pick, Carson Wentz is pretty much a lock, with no surprise. Especially considering the drama this past week between the franchise quarterback Sam Bradford and the organization. As many may know, Sam wants out of Philly due to their intentions of drafting Wentz at two. Eagles sources say the team wants to add at least one receiver and running back with their final selections. I’ve heard that it wouldn’t be a surprise if they select a quarterback and a running back with their first two picks, with the running back possibly being Louisiana Tech’s Kenneth Dixon.
No. 4 pick: Dallas Cowboys
This team is convinced with Florida State’s defensive back Jalen Ramsey. This isn’t a bad pick at all either, thinking about the Cowboys weak, well inconsistent secondary. However if he’s gone, a current Cowboy player that seems to know a little about the draft board says that Ohio State’s Ezekiel Elliot is “100 percent in play.”
No. 10 pick: New York Giants
Although general manager Jerry Reese doesn’t seem to draft linebackers, things could change this year according to a front-office source. Ohio State’s Darron Lee or Georgia’s Leonard Floyd are the two names in that conversation. They could also use an offensive tackle and Myles Jack would be their guy if he’s available at 10.
No. 21 pick: Washington Redskins
General Manager Scot McCloughan would love to draft Alabama’s center, Ryan Kelly. They know the defensive line needs help, but won’t rule out a wide receiver in the first round.
