"The Philadelphia Eagles will be looking to replace DeSean Jackson after his departure and they need to address it early with one of the top WR prospects in the draft. At this pick in my particular mock, Sammy Watkins and Marqise Lee have already been selected so Mike Evans fits the bill. Luckily for Philadelphia, Mike Evans will come in and bring a lot of the same abilities that Jackson had and with, in this case, a lot less baggage. Look for Evans to become involved early with the Eagles offense as he will come in as one of their top weapons. I realized earlier that I mocked Marqise Lee to the New York Jets without realizing Mike Evans had not been mocked. Well that was my mistake as I feel Evans wouldn’t make it this far, however, I can’t turn back now so Evans will fall here. If I could go back they would be flipped with Mike Evans headed to the Jets and Marqise Lee headed to Philadelphia."
