Return to Mock Draft

When it was announced that Georgia DT Jalen Carter would not be taking meeting with teams picking outside the top 10 the easy assumption was that he would get past Philadelphia at 10. As it turns out, Philly wasn't willing to wait even that long. They were able to trade up for Pick 9 to snag Carter, paying only a RD 4 pick in next year's draft to ensure they got their guy.

Carter, arguably the most talented defensive player in this draft class, and the Eagles are a perfect match as Philly gets a game wrecker on the interior to help replace Javon Hargrave's production and Carter is reunited with former Georgia teammate and mentor Jordan Davis. That partnership should quell questions about his passion for the game and any off-field issues. With Carter and Davis reunited and Nakobe Dean behind them the Eagles Defense remains a force to be reckoned with.
