Everyone always loves the segments on ESPN where dueling draft gurus Mel Kiper and Todd McShay argue with each other. For Eagles fans, we get no such pleasure... because in their latest respective mock drafts McShay & Kiper have the Eagles taking the exact same guy. Wisconsin OT Gabe Carimi.â†µ
Kiper has the 6-7 327 pound Carimi as the 4th rated offensive tackle in the draft. While most scouts agree that he could become a solid starting RT in the NFL, his most likely position with the Eagles in the short term is at right guard. The Eagles' entire right side was a disappointment last season, so really Carimi would have a shot to start at multiple positions right away. The Eagles left side with Jason Peters and Todd Herremans was strong, but with a left handed QB those guys aren't protecting the back side as usual.
Our latest SBNation mock draft actually has the Eagles passing on Carimi in the first round and grabbing Miami CB Brandon Harris with the #23 pick.â†µ
