The Philadelphia Eagles are up in the 2014 BIg Blue View Community Mock Draft. In his role as pretend GM, 'RevengeOfTheBlackshirts' has selected wide receiver Brandin Cooks of Oregon State for the Eagles with the 22nd overall selection.

'RevengeOfTheBlackshirts' explains:

With the departures of Desean Jackson and Jason Avant, add in Maclin recovering from injury, the Eagles have a glaring need at WR. What made this pick tough? Calvin Pryor and a couple good coirnerbacks are still available. The Eagles need secondary help, but Coach Kelly's offense needs a playmaker. In my opinion, wide receiver trumps secondary for now. Cooks has the game tape, the stats, and was a top performer at the combine (best times for a wide receiverin the 40 and both shuttle runs). Would have rather had Beckham Jr. here (No. 16 on my big board), but Cooks (No. 19 on my big board) should be a great WR for Kelly's offense, and thus he is the selection. For those wondering why the pick was not Marqise Lee, he is No. 24 on my big board. Eagles are now hoping a good cornerback or safety drops to the bottom half of the second round.

Valentine's View

Not surprised at all that the pick here is a wide receiver. I am a little surprised that it is Cooks and not Lee, although Cooks did play against Chip Kelly when Kelly was coach at Oregon. What do you guys think?
