With the No. 20 pick in the DBN 2015 NFL Mock Draft, the Philadelphia Eagles select...
La'el Collins, OT, LSU
The selection and write-up were made by Matt Wood:
I had WR Nelson Agholor penciled in here when I took the Eagles in this draft, but Collins falling into my lap was too hard to pass up. The Eagles need some OL help and Collins should play right away. While the Eagles need WR help, this is once again a deep class and help can be found later. The same cannot be said at OT. You have to take those guys early. Chip gets a bookend to Lane Johnson and whoever ends up taking snaps after Sam Bradford's injury will be happy.
No Chip Kelly fireworks? Bradford lacked a good offensive line and wide receivers during his reign in St. Louis. If the team is truly committed to him, drafting for the offensive line is a good move, and Collins seems like a solid, safe pick for an otherwise against-the-grain coach.
The Cincinnati Bengalsare up next, led by styrofoamboots.
