Any Masters fans? It is cheesy to hear Jim Nantz utter those words every April, but pretty darn awesome as well. I’m only a passive golf fan, but The Masters is something I’ve grown to love over the years.
Who are you guys pulling for?

I have said that I don’t see Jim Washburn loving Michael Brockers since he is a limited pass rusher, but it would be overly dismissive to say that the Eagles have no interest. Brockers is too good a player to just ignore.

I wrote about pre-draft visits and how to understand them for ScoutsNotebook.
The Eagles never said a word to Brandon Graham. They didn’t need to. Studied him all year. Watched him at the Senior Bowl. Watched him at the Combine. Saw production and athletic ability.
The Eagles did bring Winston Justice to the NovaCare. He was a Junior with character issues. That is a guy you want to meet with face-to-face and find out just what you think. Justice answered the questions well enough that the Eagles did in fact take him.
I update the Draft Info page here on a regular basis to keep track of who the Eagles are talking to and working out.
One note of interest…Anthony Patch, the Eagles Director of College Scouting, was at the Nevada Pro Day. The top defensive prospect was MLB James-Michael Johnson. On offense the star was WR Rishard Matthews. I like both players quite a bit. They could go in the late 2nd or 3rd rounds.
Here are profiles for each guy:
