52. Philadelphia Eagles: Duke Johnson, RB (Miami)

The Eagles traded away LeSean McCoy for Kiko Alonso. This filled their linebacker need but now they will look for a more cost effective replacement to McCoy. This is where Duke Johnson comes in.

Johnson is a fast and elusive rusher with a great stiff arm and surprising power. Johnson is a playmaker, he averaged over 6 yards per rush at Miami. Johnson was essentially the Hurricanes’ entire offense last season.

The Eagles would not have traded McCoy if they were not targeting a running back in the draft. This makes too much sense for the Eagles. Chip Kelly should be pleased.
