Todd McShay's new mock draft is up
By Dan Graziano
Unfortunately for Redskins fans, still only the first round. But here's a look at who Todd McShay is picking for the other three NFC East teams in his newest mock draft , hot off the presses.
4. Philadelphia Eagles: Dee Milliner, CB, Alabama.
My take: Nothing wrong with this idea. Personally, I feel like 4 is a little high to take a cornerback. And with guys like offensive tackle Eric Fisher and pass-rusher Dion Jordan still available, I'd err on the side of the big guy. But Milliner certainly fills a crying need, no matter what they do in free agency, and would be a pick about which Eagles fans could feel good.
18. Dallas Cowboys: Chance Warmack, G, Alabama.
My take: Anyone else get the sense that Alabama's running a good program these days? Anyway, this is the dream-come-true pick for the Cowboys. Some have said Warmack is the best offensive lineman, regardless of position, in the entire draft. If he's there at 18, the Cowboys run to the podium. They need to get an offensive lineman in the first round, and while people keep asking me, "Well, what if the top five guys are all gone by 18?," it's worth mentioning that only once in the past 15 drafts (2008) have five offensive linemen gone in the first 17 picks.
19. New York Giants: Tyler Eifert, TE, Notre Dame.
My take: A fun, new passing game weapon for Eli Manning would be a Giants-like pick, for sure. But they've de-emphasized the tight end position from a priority and resource standpoint so much since the Jeremy Shockey days that I wonder if they'd even consider using a first-round pick on one.
