If they want him, they have to get ahead of Cincinnati at #41.

Default Im no Mel Kiper but...

...having seen this kid play I will be shocked if he goes lower than 15. Running backs are a crapshoot, but I would gamble on him if RB were a critical need for my team.

... he's a top ten pick, easy. Every bit the baller that Zeke is.

So's Cook. And in his own way, McCaffrey too.

You don't get three like this to choose from very often. Pick one and run with it.

I just think the Eagles are dreaming if they think he's going to be there in the second round.

Sounds like all this mccaffrey talk will be for naught. There's apparently no chance he falls outside of the top 10. I wouldn't really have cared if they took him at 14 but if they trade up to do it and lose picks for douglas to use I would be pissed.

Funny how the guy went from a second rounder to a mid first to a top 10. The whole draft soap opera is kind of interesting that way.

If Mixon is there when the Eagles draft in the 2nd round, take him. You can dig up something on everyone if you try hard enough, this kid just did it in public. Everyone needs a second chance.

Who knew bailing on your teammates in a bowl game could be so rewarding?!

Ask Jaylon Smith or Jake Butt.

I HOPE he's not there when the birds pick...that means I won't have to worry that I may have to hear on Thurs night.."With the 14th pick in the 2017 NFL draft, the Philadelphia Eagles select........RB McCaffrey" I will be PISSED if I hear that.

I don't get it with this kid ?? He's not even a 3 down player, why would you draft a specialist at 14? The Next Westbrook...PLEASE!!

I see Jeremy Bloom...would you draft Jeremy Bloom at 14? Hell, do you draft Darren Sproles at 14? McCaffrey will be lucky to reach half of Sproles output.

I'd rather they go Mixon if they're going RB in first. Or Cook.

Jeremy Bloom had about 500 yards rushing and receiving combined in his college career.

McCaffrey had over 5000.
