The latest edition of the Cincy Jungle Writer's Mock Draft is here. Be sure to keep up with all of the picks in a out stream page.

Next up are the Philadelphia Eagles. After making a surprising run to the playoffs last year, who can the Eagles select to help them make a deep playoff-run?

Jason: Eagles take Odell Beckham JR., WR, LSU

By releasing DeSean Jackson this offseason, wide receiver became the Eagles' biggest need, and they're thrilled to see Beckham fall this far. He can also give them a boost in their return cake.

Was the Paul Hornung Award winner as the nation's most versatile player in 2013 when he broke the LSU single-season all-purpose yards record (2,315) and snagged 59 catches for 1,152-8 yards (19.5) and 10 scores.

Anthony: Eagles take Eagles, Xavier Su'a-Filo, Guard, UCLA

The Eagles have two guards on their roster and both are ten-year veterans, so getting younger and more athletic would be best for the future. Sua-Filo doesn't have the mean streak of some NFL guards, he is stout in pass protection and pretty athletic for a 310-pound lineman. Aside from that, Chip Kelly has shown an affinity to grab Pac-12 players that he is familiar with from his time at Oregon.

Mickey: Eagles take Odell Becham JR., WR, LSU

Chip Kelly's offense is built around speed and DeSean Jackson is no longer with the team. The Eagles will look to build on the offense with Beckham based on his 4.38 speed and natural athleticism. He may not step in and instantly replace the production the Eagles have enjoyed with Jackson, but he will improve the offense from where it is now. After some time in the league he could evolve into a real playmaker.
