2013 NFL Mock Draft: Walterfootball predicts Eagles will select Luke Joeckel

Brett Davis-US PRESSWIRE

Mock drafts season is in full swing, especially for fans of teams that are out of the playoff picture.

Philadelphia Eagles fans have started to focus more on the offseason after a dismal year on the football field so they can look forward to next season.

More draft experts are starting to publish their mock drafts, including Walter from Walterfootball.com. He predicts that the Eagles will attempt to improve their offensive line by selecting Texas A&M Aggies tackle Luke Joeckel.

Joeckel is 6'6'' 310-pound junior who has started at left tackle for Texas A&M since his freshman season. He is considered a better pass blocker than a run blocker, and he held up well against the LSU Tigers pass-rushing defensive ends.

Philadelphia has struggled on the offensive line all season, with starting tackle Jason Peters suffering an Achilles injury and Demetrius Bell and King Dunlap failing to provide adequate protection. Even if Peters returns to form following his injury, the Eagles need to upgrade the right tackle position, and Joeckel could provide insurance if Peters struggles upon his return.
