Three players the Eagles should consider drafting in the 2012 NFL Draft.

1)Dont’a Hightower LinebackerAlabama-Hightower is a beast LB who can play in the 4-3 or 3-4 and can play inside LB or outside. If the Eagles drafted him he would probably play on the strong side with Chaney in the middle and Brian Rolle/Casey Matthews on the weak side. Hightower has great size 6-4 265 and runs about a 4.65. The guy is a stud who can stuff the run and play sideline to sideline. He can rush the passer and also play in coverage. If Hightower is on the board at 15, he is a slamdunk no brainer pick for the Eagles in my opinion.

 

2) Alshon Jeffery WR SouthCarolina- Jeffery is a 6-4 229 receiver who could come in and make an instant impact. If the Eagles do the right thing and resign Desean Jackson, Jeffery would be a great compliment and could eventually emerge as a #1 receiver. He would be a great weapon in the redzone and would draw a lot of underneath coverage which would open up coverage for Celek as well as draw safeties into the box to help Jackson and Maclin. Whether in the first or second round Alshon Jeffery would make a great pick.

 

3) Joe Adams WR Arkansas-  Joe Adams would be a great pick because of his versatile. He was probably the best punt returner in the country this past year in college football. Go youtube his punt returns. He also could play wide receiver and could be groomed into a real nice weapon. Adams is the the type of guy you want on your team.
