Here's hambone38 with the pick.

With the 21st pick in the draft, the Philadelphia Eagles select Knowshon Moreno - RB - Georgia.

Since the Jason Peters trade has put to bed the need for an offensive tackle in Philly, a good complement (and part time stand-in) for the oft-injured Brian Westbrook is next on the docket. Moreno fits this bill completely, even though there are some who say the two are too similar. Chris Wells would also be an option here, but I believe Moreno’s versatility and playmaking ability fits in better with Andy Reid’s offense as opposed to Wells who is a more pure downhill runner. In addition to complementing the 30 year old Westbrook, Moreno has the potential to take over the reins and be the featured back himself down the road.

This is a great pick and great value at #21. He's also the first RB taken in our mock draft.
