NFL Mock Draft 2013: Eagles selecting Luke Joeckel

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles need help in a few different areas, including offensive tackle.

The 2012 NFL season is now in the rear-view mirror, which means it's time for mock drafts everyday until April 25.

In the latest SB nation mock draft, Matthew Fairburn has the Philadelphia Eagles landing the top offensive tackle in the draft in Texas A&M stud Luke Joeckel.

Joeckel has been projected to go to the Kansas City Chiefs with the No. 1 overall pick by quite a few people, but Fairburn thinks Joeckel will be available at the fourth spot for the Eagles.

The opinions at the top of the draft are all over the map with a handful of top prospects rotating. Over at USA Today, Tony Pauline has the Eagles taking Utah defensive tackle Star Lotulelei.

While Lotulelei wouldn't fit an obvious need like Joeckel, he would still provide a nice talent for new head coach Chip Kelly to work with.

Rob Rang and Dane Brugler at CBSSports.com both think Joeckel will fall to the Eagles as a replacement to the injury pronte Jason Peters.

With the NFL combine coming up in a few weeks, the mock drafts will surely be shaken up.
