The Philadelphia Eagles finished the 2023 season failing to reminisce about their success in 2022, as they ended the regular season 11-6 and went on to get embarrassed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the Super Wild Card rematch from week 3.

Philly finished with 433 point scored this year while racking up 354.4 yards per game, to go along with 4,067 passing yards and 2,190 rushing yards. Eagles did outstanding at home going 6-2 and struggled at the end of the year on the road going 5-5 (including postseason).

The Eagles should look into offensive tackles, cornerbacks, wide receivers, running backs, and centers for the upcoming season. The Eagles hold nine draft picks this year, and there will be no trades in this mock draft.

Philadelphia Eagles bolster O-line, secondary with two studs on Day 1 and Day 2 of 2024 NFL Draft

. 22. Eagles Draft round 1. . . JC Latham. JC Latham. player. Tackle. 523

This 6'6, 360-pounder can be the insurance policy the Eagles need, as Lane Johnson could be pushing for retirement as he will be entering his 12th season in the NFL. JC Latham has impressive coordination with his broad frame and elite-level play strength.

. Josh Newton. Josh Newton. 50. Eagles Draft round 2. . Cornerback. . player. 466

After coming off an adequate 2023 year where he was named Second-team All-Big 12, Josh Newton started his collegiate career at Louisiana-Monroe, then entered the transfer portal to be a part of the TCU Horned Frogs his senior year. Newton in five years tallied up 152 total tackles and 7 interceptions. He is really aggressive in press coverage, something the Eagles need on defense.
