How NFL.com analysts are projecting the first-round picks for the Philadelphia Eagles in the 2013 NFL Draft:


Matt "Money" Smith

No. 4: Ziggy Ansah, DE, BYU

There isn't a lot of tape out there, but you can't deny what you see when you watch him play. He's an impact player, and if the Jags can take Jordan at No. 2, the Birds certainly can take Ansah at No. 4. Eric Fisher will get a long look, but ultimately Ansah is a player who can change the game.

Charles Davis

No. 4: Dee Milliner, CB, Alabama

Some recent buzz had Geno Smith being a bit of a surprise pick here. Here's my surprise choice after previously penciling in OT Lane Johnson in this spot.

Daniel Jeremiah

No. 4: Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia

With this move, Chip Kelly would be getting a young quarterback who has experience playing in an up-tempo offense. Michael Vick's veteran presence will give Smith some time to sit and learn before taking the reins in Philly.

Bucky Brooks

No. 4: Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A&M

Chip Kelly understands the importance of protecting the passer, which is why drafting Joeckel makes complete sense in this scenario.

Akbar Gbajabiamila

No. 4: Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A&M

Chip Kelly's NASCAR offense is about to hit the NFL, and the Eagles have many of the skill positions covered. But in order to get the offense going, the quarterback must be protected. Joeckel fits the need. This would give the team a stellar pair of bookend tackles in Joeckel and five-time Pro Bowler Jason Peters (expected back from injury).

Gil Brandt

No. 4: Eric Fisher, OT, Central Michigan

Fisher has shown that he's light on his feet and moves very well. I think he'll get much better as he gains experience; he's an excellent, excellent prospect.

Charley Casserly

No. 4: Eric Fisher, OT, Central Michigan

Both of Philly's offensive tackles (Jason Peters and Todd Herremans) were hurt last season.

Josh Norris

No. 4: Dee Milliner, CB, Alabama

After releasing Nnamdi Asomugha, the Eagles signed Bradley Fletcher, who is solid when healthy. Still, the team needs another outside cover man. (Brandon Boykin is solid, but in a slot corner role.)
