Post-Combine Mock Draft Tracker

With the Scouting Combine in the books, a new round of mock drafts have begun and, once again, Wisconsin's Gabe Carimi is a popular projection to the Eagles. More importantly, the prevailing thought at the moment seems to be that the Eagles will address the offensive line in the first round. Of the 10 mock drafts surveyed, seven project the Eagles to bolster their protection of Michael Vick. Here now is the updated mock draft tracker.

Site Selection Last Updated
NFL.com (Charles Davis) CB Aaron Williams (Texas) March 2
Comment: "New defensive coordinator Juan Castillo will like this selection."
ESPN (Todd McShay) OT Gabe Carimi (Wisconsin) February 10
Comment: "Outside linebacker is a bigger need, but no available prospect fits the Eagles' scheme and is worth this pick. Carimi has versatility to play tackle or guard immediately and should develop into a very good starting tackle -- likely on the right side -- in the very near future."
ESPN (Mel Kiper) OT Gabe Carimi (Wisconsin) February 16

Comment: " In Carimi they get a guy who loves to run block and will sustain his blocks into the second level. He plays with an edge and should develop as a pass-blocker."
