2012 NFL Mock Draft: Eagles Select Devon Still

ESPN's Todd McShay has released the latest version of his 2012 NFL Mock Draft has the Eagles selecting Devon Still, the defensive tackle from Penn State.

Opinions on Still vary widely. I have a late-first-round grade on him, but many feel he is a mid-first-rounder. There is a lot to like about his upside, given his size and ability to penetrate and disrupt. He is inconsistent on tape, but it's hard to find guys with his combination of skills. Alabama S Mark Barron would be a consideration, but the Eagles got S Jaiquan Jarrett in the second round last year, and this would be a bit early for an outside linebacker like North Carolina's Zach Brown. Philadelphia fans, feel free to disagree.

Luke Kuechly, the inside linebacker from Boston College, has been the Eagles selection in many a mock drafts thus far. In McShay's latest installment he has Kuechly being selected by the Kansas City Chiefs twelfth overall, three picks before the Eagles' selection.
