I anticipate the Eagles adding at least one WR in the upcoming draft. Might be a big guy. Might be a fast guy. That depends on how the DeSean Jackson / FA situation plays out. No matter which way the Eagles decide to go, there will be good targets.
* Ga Tech WR Stephen Hill ran 4.30 and caught the ball really well. He’s now in the mix for a mid-2nd round pick. Guy is 6’4, 215. Still raw, but has big time potential.
* Notre Dame star Michael Floyd ran 4.42 and also caught the ball well. Good day for him. He’s 6’3, 220. He could be good value at pick 15. I’m just not sure a 1st round WR makes sense for us.
* Joe Adams and Kendall Wright are burners who didn’t post great times. That isn’t a huge deal for me. Those guys are fast on game tape. Adams lit up the Senior Bowl. Their times weren’t “slow”. They just weren’t what we expected to see.
* Mohamed Sanu only ran a 4.65, but he’s a big, possession receiver. I think he could be a real help to the Eagles offense. A 40 time like that won’t hurt him, but it will keep him from being over-drafted. Sanu could last until the mid-2nd. I’m really intrigued by the thought of him as an Eagle.
* Michigan State has 2 receivers I like a lot. Just re-watched the Big Ten title game on Friday night and both BJ Cunningham and Keshawn Martin played well. BJ is the big guy who can work the middle, but still has some speed. Martin is smaller, but still tough. Also a RS. Would love to see one of them end up in Eagles green.
* Might want to forget about
Greg Dwight Jones as a target. Mike Mayock showed a highlight of him not running a drill correctly and then not hustling at the end. Apparently the coaches there got on him for that. One of those coaches was David Culley, the Eagles WR coach.

Questions/Topics from earlier:
* Luke Kuechly short arms. Having short arms isn’t a huge deal for LBs. It is crucial for OL/DL. They are engaging each other immediately and the arms can decide who wins the battle. LBs do use their arms to keep blockers away, but the LB also plays more in space and can put his body in the right position.
* Luke Kuechly’s value. If Luke compares to Sean Lee, why is he worth pick 15? Sean slid because of fears on his repaired knee. If he had been injury free, Sean might have gone in the 15-25 range. Kuechly isn’t a slam dunk Top 20 pick for all teams. I think the Eagles have to be interested because he fits such a critical need (although we expect that spot to be filled in FA).
* Dontari Poe. Typo. He was 346.
* Ladarius Green. If the Eagles have interest, it would be as a TE/WR hybrid. They would move him around. Let him work in the slot and outside. Try to create matchups. He’s tall and fast. Has good hands. There are some issues, but you could find a way to use him. Talented player.
* Jeff Allen as OT target? Maybe, but not likely. Could go as early as the 2nd round. I don’t think he fits us enough for the Eagles to take him that early. Better blocker than athlete. Mudd likes athletes.
* Zach Brown as SAM? I think he could have handled the spot at 236. Seeing him at 244 is interesting. Most guy lose weight to run as fast as possible. Brown gaining weight is a good sign. He’s naturally fast so he focused on strength, power. Still isn’t worth pick 15.
