In his last go-around at a mock draft before the start of the first round tonight, ESPN's Todd McShay projects that the Philadelphia Eagles will select Fletcher Cox, a defensive tackle out of Mississippi State.
Based off of the latest grumblings going around the world of mock drafts, it would seem that Philadelphia would be thrilled to get its hands on Cox, who many foresee as a top ten selection.
The Eagles have a glaring need to beef up their defense, and landing Cox would provide them with an interior run stuffing presence who could tandem with Cullen Jenkins to fortify the middle.
The draft begins Thursday night at 8:00 p.m. EST, and can be seen on ESPN or NFL Network.
