ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. released his Mock Draft 2.0 on Wednesday and he has the Eagles taking Washington cornerback Marcus Peters with the 20th overall selection. However, Kiper does address the Marcus Mariota question in his analysis.
I can't leave all the Eagles fans tweeting at me and asking the big question hanging, so I'll say this: Of course I can fathom a scenario where they move up (or at least look to) and target the QB who made it tough for Chip Kelly to leave for a good NFL job when he did. But I can't project a trade here, and just as many close Eagles observers know that help at cornerback is badly needed. Peters doesn't come without question marks -- he was dismissed from the team at Washington this past season -- but if it's purely a question of talent, he's a potential steal at this point in the first round. He has loads of natural talent, and playmaker instincts to go with very good ball skills, and he makes any secondary better if he's playing up to his potential.
