I’ll post practice notes later on. For now, some quick, simple stuff.
The Eagles talked to:
OLB Jeremiah Attaochu
CB Aaron Colvin
ILB Christian Jones
DL Deandre Coleman
DE Brent Urban
ILB Lamin Barrow
CB Stanley Jean-Baptiste
ILB Chris Borland
CB Dontae Johnon
S Ahmad Dixon
The players were meeting with coaches and scouts.
The Eagles were active and aggressive. They also talked to players at night back at the team hotel. Those interviews can be very important. That’s where they really sit down and talk to a guy and get an in-depth feel for him. The meetings on the practice field are quick chats. They can give you an idea of who the Eagles are interested in.
Get ready to hear about DE Brent Urban and ILB Christian Jones a lot. I liked both players coming into today. Seeing the Eagles show interest in them makes sense because of their size and the positions they play. I’ll write about them later tonight.
Offensive coaches were there. Duce Staley and Pat Shurmur were both taking in the action, but we didn’t see them talking to players. I’m sure all the guys were around, but I only want to share what I know for a fact.

No update on the search for a QB coach. It is possible that Chip Kelly will meet with some people down here to talk about the job.

Per Jeff McLane, Mike Dawson has been promoted from Def Quality Control Coach to Asst DL Coach. Quality control is a lot of scouting work and analysis. You don’t actually coach players. Dawson will now get to work with Coach Azz and the DL/pass rushers.
