Lots of great prospects to watch today.

I’ll post some thoughts this evening.

247 Comments on “Saturday Combine – QB, RB, and WRs”

  1. 1 GEAGLE said at 9:34 AM on February 21st, 2015:

    sammie compared athletically/size to sammy watkins.. ran 4.45
    dorsett ran 4.35 on his first attempt and he even stumbled a bit
    funchess ran 4.7

  2. 2 Greg Richards said at 9:48 AM on February 21st, 2015:

    Amari Cooper – 4.43
    Nelson Agholor – 4.44
    Chris Conley – 4.41(at 6-2, 213); second attempt – 4.35
    Antwan Goodley – 4.46(He’s a guy I think Eagles may have interest in)
    Rashad Greene – 4.47
    Justin Hardy – 4.56

  3. 3 GEAGLE said at 9:50 AM on February 21st, 2015:

    funchess ran a 4.7 twice… thats bad…might have to go TE route

  4. 4 Greg Richards said at 9:53 AM on February 21st, 2015:

    I think it was known he’s more of a flex TE. I think he has a better chance to be drafted high at the TE position. 2nd round guy regardless.

  5. 5 anon said at 12:01 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    how were his hand drills?

  6. 6 GEAGLE said at 4:36 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    funchess and DGB both showed solid hands for big boys. i was actually surprised with how good funchess hands looked in the drill

  7. 7 Insomniac said at 12:19 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    Goodley and Huff (when he’s good) would be insane.

  8. 8 Greg Richards said at 9:41 AM on February 21st, 2015:

    4.5 at 6-5, 237 pounds is insane. I think he may just be worth the risk. If there aren’t any character questions, this guy probably goes top 5. His issues are the only thing that makes me think Eagles may have a shot at him. If it blows up, Chip can just blame Howie.

  9. 9 GEAGLE said at 9:42 AM on February 21st, 2015:

    amazing considering similar size funchess ran a 4.7

  10. 10 Media Mike said at 9:49 AM on February 21st, 2015:

    If DGB gets some good returns from his quickness drills and pass catching in person; he isn’t lasting until 20.

  11. 11 Greg Richards said at 9:50 AM on February 21st, 2015:

    Eagles can just spread a rumor that he ate a puppy.

  12. 12 GEAGLE said at 9:52 AM on February 21st, 2015:

    4.49 2nd attempt

  13. 13 TommyLawlor said at 10:50 AM on February 21st, 2015:

    I also wonder about DGB as a target. Might have so much upside that Kelly feels the risk is worth it.

  14. 14 GEAGLE said at 12:32 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    thats certainly possible when we are talking this type of insane talent….. what we know for sure is 3 WRs will go ahead of him atleast, white, parker and Amari..
    anyone see a 4th WR that could push DGB down even further?
    Tom, all I ask is that if chip kelly isnt going to draft this kid, I pray he is gone before the eagles pick… because Chip passing on that kid could be the be the next Earl Thomas nightmare that we never hear the end of in this city… if he falls to 22, pray we take him, just because of how horrible it will be to pass on him and see him grow into the next monster

  15. 15 Greg Richards said at 9:43 AM on February 21st, 2015:

    Notable QB times:

    Hundley 4.63(same as Manziel)
    Brandon Bridge 4.72
    Bryan Bennett 4.81

    Mariota hasn’t run yet but some think he may break 4.5.

  16. 16 GermanEagle said at 10:00 AM on February 21st, 2015:

    Guys, where can i watch the Combine on the net? I do not have a NFL network subscription. Thanks.

  17. 17 Insomniac said at 10:13 AM on February 21st, 2015:

  18. 18 bentheimmigrant said at 11:11 AM on February 21st, 2015:

    Outside the US, that tries to get you to subscribe to NFL Gamepass.

  19. 19 GermanEagle said at 12:52 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    No, that doesn’t work. It asks me to sign it with my TV provider before saying that I don’t have a nfl network subscription with RCN.
    I live in the US…

  20. 20 Insomniac said at 12:59 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    if you’re on your phone it might do that.

    direct link

  21. 21 GEAGLE said at 10:13 AM on February 21st, 2015:

    Looks like C2J’s speed record will be safe for another year…

    i want to know when the combine will join the current times? put the silly stop watches down and lets start measuring these kids using all the “Espn Sports science show” measurement techniques… they measure everything, time, force, balance of weight in your body that shows efficient proper technique…. ESPN has all this awesome equipment that can take us in depth to breakdown these draft athletes, yet the nfl is still using stop watches? at some point we will have to start using new technology available to us

  22. 22 Insomniac said at 10:14 AM on February 21st, 2015:

    Chris Conley, going to need to watch some breakdowns on him.

  23. 23 Javi Echie said at 10:17 AM on February 21st, 2015:

    I was thinking the same thing. He has good measurables and ran a good forty. Has me very intrigued.

  24. 24 Insomniac said at 10:23 AM on February 21st, 2015:

    I was more encouraged from his draft profile. The 40 time might be an added bonus if he could play like that in pads.

  25. 25 Insomniac said at 10:19 AM on February 21st, 2015:

    DGB has tiny hands for a guy his size. Antwan Goodley has bigger hands than DGB, Wow,

  26. 26 GEAGLE said at 10:26 AM on February 21st, 2015:

    he just showed some solid hands on the drill

  27. 27 Insomniac said at 10:29 AM on February 21st, 2015:

    His hands were never a problem. I just found it odd that he has small hands.

  28. 28 GEAGLE said at 10:33 AM on February 21st, 2015:

    the only real negative is he is pretty darn raw. Kid has alot to learn. He might be able to make big plays as a rookie just off of natural ability, but he is raw to where if you are going to draft that kid, you should probably have two veteran WRs ahead of him his rookie year. Cant go into his rookie year counting on him holding down #2 duty all year… so for us, it would work because we have Coop for one more year, so we can avoid having to put too much on his plate too soon….. doubt Baalke lets him get past the niners…

  29. 29 Insomniac said at 10:37 AM on February 21st, 2015:

    Yup. Everyone saw what Evans/Benjamin did. DGB is better than both of those guys.

  30. 30 GEAGLE said at 10:40 AM on February 21st, 2015:

    i can live with him not falling to us, which may be better so we arent stuck hating chip kelly when he passes on him…. but what I cant live with is fat andy drafting him… out of all the years andy deprived us of WRs, if he drafts this kid in round 1, i will be furious…. thankfully the Giants pick too high… last thing we need is ODB/DGB tandem on the Giants for the next decade

  31. 31 Insomniac said at 10:44 AM on February 21st, 2015:

    I can see Jerry picking him if he slides past us.

  32. 32 GEAGLE said at 12:27 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    definitely.. he screams Jerry Jones player
    the one thing we know for certain, is that atleast 3 WRs will be drafted ahead of him. White, Parker and Cooper, with the Raiders taking the first 1 which will either be white or Parker… Vikings will take Cooper, because he was Bridegewaters high school WR…
    cleveland is going to have to add a WR if they arent spending a pick on the QB
    wonder if DGB will be the 4th WR drafted or if someone else will push him down the WR rankings?

  33. 33 Anders said at 12:45 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    Calvin Johnson got 9″1/4 hands for comparision

  34. 34 GEAGLE said at 10:21 AM on February 21st, 2015:

    I like that Chip kelly forms his own opinions instead of just following the ol Boys club… would be fascinated to know what goes thru his mind when he is watching all these kids, and I would really love to know how he ranks them compared to the consensus opinion.. for example he said that last year he had ODB as the #1 WR. Everyone was high on the kid, but most people put Evans and Sammy ahead of him.. I like that chip isnt afraid to buck the consensus evaluations and think for himself…. So watching the combine, we allhave a idea on the consensus rankings of these kids, but I cant help to wonder how different Chips evaluations are from the accepted consensus opinion brainwashed into our brains by Kiper and the media? would love to know who chip views as the best that goes against the consensus rankings??

  35. 35 GEAGLE said at 10:25 AM on February 21st, 2015:

    yaaaawn…. lets get the show started, im bored, take me to the main event aka DEVIN SMITH watch the kid fly….. best possible deep ball replacement to desean we could ever hope to find, but unlike Desean, he has some decent size. Cant wait to see the buckeye run…

    devin smith this year, Zeke as our RB next year….

  36. 36 Javi Echie said at 11:53 AM on February 21st, 2015:

    Only problem with Smith is that he has no route running skills whatsoever, he really only ran seam routes at OSU. I like the kid but have a hard time convincing myself of taking such a raw receiver that high.

    As for Zeke Elliot oh man I’m drooling at thinking of him as our rb next year lol

  37. 37 GEAGLE said at 12:22 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    we could have said the same things about Mike Evans, who ran like 3 routes the entire time playing with Johnny Football
    i love him as a 2nd round option… but if he goes round 1, i would pass

  38. 38 Javi Echie said at 12:24 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    His underwhelming 40 just now may drop him out of the 1st

  39. 39 GEAGLE said at 12:34 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    gotta see his second attempt, hopefully its similar to the 1st. hate when there is a big discrepancy,

  40. 40 Insomniac said at 12:35 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    4.46 i think

  41. 41 GEAGLE said at 12:38 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    what i hate is watch, he will be a kid who we “hear” puts up drastically better numbers at his pro day(allegedly)

  42. 42 Rockedupeaglesfan said at 3:56 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    He has decent size(ODB like), but he is blocking averse. I think his game speed shows the type deep threat he is, despite his time today. Not sure if his game and attitude fit with Chip.

  43. 43 GEAGLE said at 10:28 AM on February 21st, 2015:

    like the way Mario Alford moves, kid is smooth but he also turns on the Jets and flys
    Coates was solid on the hands drill… he just looks like a beast

  44. 44 anon said at 11:50 AM on February 21st, 2015:

    need that red zone threat.

  45. 45 Insomniac said at 10:57 AM on February 21st, 2015:

    Jaelon Strong with the 42 inch vertical.

  46. 46 GEAGLE said at 12:23 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    really like that kid.. plays tough

  47. 47 anon said at 11:35 AM on February 21st, 2015:

    Did WRs already go through drills?

  48. 48 mksp said at 11:57 AM on February 21st, 2015:

    Chip wants MM so bad….

    6’4 222 with 4.52 speed. Unreal.

  49. 49 anon said at 11:57 AM on February 21st, 2015:


  50. 50 mksp said at 12:10 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    Have thought Devin Smith was overrated all year. 4.47 not a good look for him.

  51. 51 Insomniac said at 12:15 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    This years De’Anthony Thomas

  52. 52 mksp said at 12:15 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    Holy shit Kevin White

  53. 53 Insomniac said at 12:15 PM on February 21st, 2015:


  54. 54 anon said at 12:16 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    yea that’s crazy

  55. 55 mksp said at 12:17 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    Welcome to the Raiders kid.

  56. 56 Anders said at 12:35 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    So Kevin White ran the same forty as Desean and White is 37 pounds heavier.

    The two most impressive is still Waller and DGB, both ran sub 4.5 at almost 240

  57. 57 Insomniac said at 12:36 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    Desean plays at a faster pace on the field.

  58. 58 EaglesD3rdandwrong said at 4:33 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    all he can do is run goes tho. I was always impressed with how Maclin can cut and still maintain near top speed.

  59. 59 mksp said at 12:37 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    Kevin White is one of those guys that at the beginning of the season was a 2nd round guy, then you watch one game and just know he’s gonna end up being top-10 as the process plays out. Now maybe top-5.

    Insane ball skills, great hands, 4.35 at his size….best WR in the draft pretty easily.

  60. 60 ACViking said at 12:47 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    Titans have a big decision.

    Depending on how Leonard Williams does, the choice may be White v. Williams v. Mariotta/Winston.

    Or trade down to Cleveland for both their 1st rd picks (and a 2nd) — so Cleveland can get a WR in White.

  61. 61 ACViking said at 12:38 PM on February 21st, 2015:


    Impressive was Calvin Johnson.

    4.35 at 6’5″ 239lbs

  62. 62 Anders said at 12:42 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    4.46 at 238 is impressive. Johnson at 4.35 is just out of this world inhumanly insane

  63. 63 ACViking said at 12:44 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    No argument there.

    Other worldly for sure

  64. 64 anon said at 12:28 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    not seeing chipper w the scouts this year, think he trusts the process more?

  65. 65 Insomniac said at 12:30 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    He probably told all of the scouts to figure out how we could sabotage Kevin White’s draft stock enough to get him down to our pick.

  66. 66 GEAGLE said at 12:37 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    breaking News.. Eagles just agreed to a deal trading Matt Barkley to the Raiders for the #4th pick (kevin white).. E-true Hollywood story

  67. 67 Insomniac said at 12:43 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    Kevin White

  68. 68 Mitchell said at 12:43 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    Strong has really impressed me today. I would seriously, seriously consider him at 20. That 4.44 speed? I thought he was gonna run high 4s low 5s. Very impressive.

  69. 69 GEAGLE said at 12:47 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    im hoping he doesnt move into the #4 WR spot behind Parker,White and Coop… Then again I dont want DGB to be the #4 WR either lol

  70. 70 Mitchell said at 12:51 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    I think he is right there with Parker and Cooper. White is the best but there is a 3 way tie for second. It comes down to what a team is looking for. Imo.

  71. 71 GEAGLE said at 12:56 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    im not sure White is a total lock to go 1st, ESPECIALLY when the Raiders will probably be the team that makes that decision. I know what White did today, and think he would be a great 4th pick, but i wouldnt the least bit be surprised to see the Raiders take Parker instead. I think Parker is every bit as fantastic as White.. Today Matters, but it isnt the entire puzzle… maybe if a different franchise was making the decision i could see white as more of a lock, but with the Raiders picking, i wont be the least bit surprised to see them go Parker over White.. and truth is it wont be some travesty if they do.
    whats funny is scouts went into the combine with “concerns over his top end speed”.. think White shut that down today lol

  72. 72 Mitchell said at 1:03 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    Sure did. Seeing Strong today, I would love love love to have him in the first. We are gonna get a good player whoever we pick. So stoked.

  73. 73 GEAGLE said at 1:37 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    there seems like we will get to draft a true first round grade which is awesome, not sure what position tho… could easily be something not so popular like Arik Armstead falling to 20, or an OL….. still havent seen chip spend a first round pick on a position outside of the trenches, but cant be mad if he continues on that path as long as we are getting a true first round grade, Ill be happy…

  74. 74 D3FB said at 12:01 AM on February 22nd, 2015:

    His best comp is Jordan Matthews with better aerial ability. Similar size, both are as fast as they need to be.

  75. 75 Mitchell said at 9:41 AM on February 22nd, 2015:

    The question is, does Chop want another physical route runner or a burner. I think Strong gives us the best receiver stable in the NFL hands down.

  76. 76 GEAGLE said at 12:46 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    wonder which kid Derick Carr pushes for? must be nice to be a young QB of a team with the 4th pick sitting back and watching todays WR combine, just drooling at the possibilities. Assumed Devante Parker would be the first pick, Cooper reunbiting with Bridgewater at the Viking, and White coming off the board somewhere in 10-15 range, but White certainly has staken his claim today, giving Parker a run for his money as the first WR off the board. You look at Kevin White, and he looks like a mini, more explosive Vernon Davis

    curious to see which kid the Raiders go with, and where the other player will land?
    is there a chance that after those 3 WRs, there will be another WR or two that come off the board before DGB?

  77. 77 Anders said at 12:49 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    Parker, White, Cooper, Strong (any in any order), then I think DGB and then its between Coates and Perriman after that

  78. 78 GEAGLE said at 12:50 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    nooooooooooo. not strong! lol i dont want him to be the 4th lol

  79. 79 Anders said at 12:55 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    With that speed and his ability to win jump balls, he will be 4th WR at worst

  80. 80 GEAGLE said at 12:58 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    nooooooooooooo. thats my dude. im going to be a brat about it and refuse to believe or acknowledge it 🙂

  81. 81 ACViking said at 12:50 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    Besides White, is there another WR with his size/speed, production and willingness to block worthy of Top 10?

  82. 82 shah8 said at 1:40 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    The GT WR is getting some notice for lower rounds…

  83. 83 Insomniac said at 1:43 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    Waller? He looked pretty bad in the Shrine game.

  84. 84 Anders said at 12:48 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    Hundley measurables: 6'3 1/4" 226 lbs. 10.5" hand 4.63u (40) 36" vert 10' broad 3.98 shutt. 6.93 3cone— Adam Caplan (@caplannfl) 21. februar 2015

    Hundley is a freak at the QB position. Only his forty is “bad”.

    His shuttle is one of the best and the 3 cone is very good.

  85. 85 anon said at 12:53 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    big hands

  86. 86 mksp said at 12:53 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    For his size his 40 is anything but bad, especially for a QB. He’s just not a freak like Mariota.

  87. 87 Anders said at 12:55 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    4.63 is still “disappointing”, I know it is isnt bad, but there was expectations he could run 4.5-4.55

  88. 88 GermanEagle said at 12:56 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    I did expect that actually. Remember when a poster here suggested that Hundley had a better straight line speed than MM. No chance. Mate.

  89. 89 Anders said at 12:57 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    haha yea, that was Sha8.

    Hundley did have better agility than Mariota, but I expected that.

    One can argue that the SS and 3C is more important for a mobile QB than straight line speed

  90. 90 shah8 said at 1:32 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    Eeehhh, have to go by tape. Even so, had I not seen the college clips of Hundley, this would have been the number I expected.

    Here’s the thing, though. Compare Mariota’s rushing tape with Kaepernick’s college tape, who’s supposed to be slower…

    I got the way I did, because I can remember Cam Newton’s run against LSU, and the finish was him beating Patrick Peterson. Mariota doesn’t have any of the sort of tape where he makes his own play and beats everyone.

  91. 91 D3FB said at 11:56 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    No, Nothing on tape showed he had those kinds of wheels. I said last week Mariotta would run a low 4.5 and Hundley would run a high 4.5 or low 4.6.

  92. 92 ACViking said at 12:55 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    Hundley’s numbers almost the same as Luck.

  93. 93 ACViking said at 12:55 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    Hundley’s shuttle is new Combine record for QBs.

    (Beat Matt Scott’s 3.99 in 2013)

  94. 94 Anders said at 12:58 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    Just saw best since 2006, but makes sense as he is very agile. Would just have thought an RG3 or Vick was more agile consider their lower weight.

  95. 95 shah8 said at 1:22 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    RGIII is not agile.

  96. 96 Cafone said at 2:50 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    But can they measure his heart? (Seriously, can we get some x-rays here?)

  97. 97 GermanEagle said at 12:49 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    Some of you may remember that I had Kevin White atop my WR rankings. Now he just cemented this notion. Boom.

  98. 98 anon said at 12:52 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    stop being so modest you gotta go full geagle.

  99. 99 GermanEagle said at 12:54 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    I am Mr. humble pie. Just like TO!

  100. 100 mksp said at 12:55 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    “Hahahaahahaha, I’ve been talkign abut Kevin WHite for 4 years since he was in High School, yous donkeys stop stealing my analysis.”

  101. 101 ACViking said at 1:01 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    November 2, 2014 . . . following the Kevin White v. Kevin White – WR/CB match-up.

  102. 102 GermanEagle said at 1:02 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    Someone either got a great memory or search skills. 🙂

  103. 103 ACViking said at 1:06 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    I remembered the question you asked about whether a WR and CB with the same name ever played against each other.

    Great question. But had to find the link.

  104. 104 Mitchell said at 12:49 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    These are just not human beings. Lol.

  106. 106 Anders said at 12:59 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    4.8 is pretty impressive overall (depends on the weight tho, Lane Johnson ran 4.72 at 305 pounds)

  115. 115 mksp said at 1:12 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    I’ve been advocating for him for a while. Anyone who actually watches his draftbreakdown tape sees that he can make some special throws, and has underrated pocket presence.

    Hopefully his flaws (dropping his eyes, etc.) are coachable.

  116. 116 Anders said at 1:16 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    I have been on him for while. I can understand why some people aint comfortable with him early, but I think his flaws are overblown and think the whole part about playing for Jim Mora is ignored.

  125. 125 shah8 said at 1:46 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    My problem was mostly that we’re talking about a dude who is very comparable to Brandon Weedon as a pitcher. Maybe baseball doesn’t correlate to a football, but Winston’s arm is definitely about as strong as RWilson.

  126. 126 GEAGLE said at 2:01 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    If White, Parker, Coop, DGB and Strong are the elite WR prospect, what are the odds we see 5 WR drafted in the top 19?
    Figure 2 QBs will go top 19
    atleast 3 edge rushers
    How many OT’s? 3?
    at the very least two DT, Leonard and Shelton

    minimum 1 CB? Trae?
    any sure shot top 19 RB?

  127. 127 oreofestar said at 2:18 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    Think you might put Funchess into that discussion and if DGB can knock out interviews he should be there to on a talent perspective.

    Yeah should just be 2 QBs unless Hundley rises

    Rushers? Gregory no question, Ray, Fowler probably Dupree and Beasley are in the discussion.

    OTS? No clue Schreff seems like a lock Ogbuehi, Peat, Clemmings, Collins, Flowers have a shot. Anywhere from 2-4 probably

    Leonard is the best player in the draft so yeah, Shelton should be top 15 no question, Armstead maybe and I don;t think Brown is getting enough attention he could get in that top 19

    CB? Yeah Trae and Peters if a team trusts him

    I haven’t looked at RBS to much but Gordon is there right?

    Only Safety I like there is Thompson if you think he is a safety but some team may take Collins

    If the top 19 goes Gregory, Ray, Fowler, Dupree, Mariota, Winston, White, Coop, Parker, one of DGB/Strong/Fun, Schreff, Clemmings, Peat, Leonard, Shelton, Brown, Trae, Gordon, Collins that leaves a hell of a lot of talent to choose from

  128. 128 GEAGLE said at 2:38 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    yes it certainly is starting to look like we will get to draft a kid with a true first round grade instead of having to play the trade back game and choose from a bunch of similarly graded second round prospects and pay them 1st round money
    a true first round talent with strong work ethic is all i ask, the position isnt as important as the charecter and work ethic that comes with that first round talent….. if we do our job in free agency what position we draft in round 1 shouldnt even matter

    but personally, i dont care if you need a QB, i would NEVER NEVER pass on Leonard Willimas…. id give my kidney to pair him with Fletcher Cox and Logan… heck we can get German Eagle and his massive 5’11 frame and 5.73 speed to play linebacker behind that scary line SMH sigh

  129. 129 oreofestar said at 2:42 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    Williams is filthy, If I’m TB I would just pair that Monster with Mccoy and call it a day but they won’t, Winston and Mariota are better than the QBS from the last couple years but they aren;t worth number 1 pick IMO.

    Honestly I don’t mind a WR round one because round 1 has awesome WRS, I think if DGB can convince Chip he can get his act together we could draft him at 20 but I doubt it unfortunately he’s a knucklehead but Strong or Fun could be in play

  130. 130 GEAGLE said at 2:55 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    going with williams/mcCoy is a easy decision in my mind, but QB prospetcs rule the world… i dont know if i want funchess at 20, but DGB and strong would be an easy decision for me. Id draft which ever gets past KC and the niners

  131. 131 oreofestar said at 3:03 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    I said Funchess would be in the discussion but I wouldn’t do it at 20 I have him above Smith but firmly at 6 under White, Coop, Park, DGB, Strong and I will take the latter 2 at 20 all day long (assuming DGB character concerns are ok with Chip).

    DGB is a monster ON THE FIELD freaking 6’5 238 with sub 4.5 speed

  132. 132 GEAGLE said at 3:09 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    personally i think the top 5 are the only ones i would want to spend a 1st rounder on… but in round two, I like funchess, Sammie, Devin

  133. 133 oreofestar said at 3:18 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    Funchess I would take round 1 like in the 28-32 range so we’d have to trade down Coates and Smith are definitely second rounders (FOR NOW)

  134. 134 GEAGLE said at 3:21 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    also wouldnt mind the beastly Gtech kid or the Georgia kid who blew it up today…all are talents chip can work with

  135. 135 Anders said at 3:23 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    Both the GT kids are interesting, both are very raw, but there size and speed makes em interesting late round targets

  136. 136 GEAGLE said at 3:28 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    like them better than last years 6’6 guy Coleman from Rutgers

  137. 137 oreofestar said at 3:31 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    Well Coleman was like 6’7 I think but yeah I like Waller more than him too

  138. 138 Anders said at 3:44 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    I have zero expectations, but Smelter would be a great pick imo in the 7th or as and UDFA (that ACL injury will drop him even if he was maybe a 3rd round pick before injury)

  139. 139 Duracell said at 3:45 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    I’m a GT alum. Trust me, the GT receiver you want is Smelter. If he falls to the 3rd/4th due to the injury, that’s a steal. I know the size/speed of Waller is intriguing, but he really shouldn’t go before the 5th round. He’s incredibly raw for being a senior.

  140. 140 Anders said at 3:53 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    yea I prefer Smelter, but that ACL can be troublesome (some never recovers).

    I heard some mention he was a late 2nd or 3rd round pick before the injury, so I would guess 6th to UDFA now, but he fits what Kelly wants.

    Big, great blocker and able to high point balls. He would be an upgrade over Cooper.

  141. 141 Duracell said at 3:56 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    Before the injury I thought he was a 2nd round pick. You are probably right that I am underestimating the impact of the injury. ACL injuries aren’t the injuries they used to be though. Getting him in the 6th or later would be a coup, and I think he’d be a great fit in this offense.

  142. 142 oreofestar said at 3:24 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    Oh Conley need to watch him now after the nonsense he was doing today lol I am warming up to Waller though

  143. 143 Baloophi said at 2:01 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    Cossel saying to look out for Brooks Reed and Marcus Gilchrest to Eagles in FA. Don’t know anything really about Gilchrest but he does not put up goddy numbers. Anyone provide info further on Gilchrest?

  150. 150 GEAGLE said at 2:15 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    Brooks Reed absolutely makes sense as a better Casey Mathews, guy that can play inside while also providing OLB depth..
    Gilchrist is one of the top 2nd tier young options. Its similr to a Nolan Carrol signing where he isnt completely proven but one of the young talents who are being pojected to play their best ball over the course of the next contract they sign,,, like a safety Keenan allen type of solid but not great signing….
    shouldnt be hard to recruit Brooks into signing with the eagles, we already have a 3rd of his houston team mates in place.
    I dont hate the gilchrist signing, but I think we can do better at safety. thats the type of guy you sign as a fallback option if you miss on your top target… THen again, if we pay for Maxwell, makes sense to go with a guy like Gilchrist at safety.. he has started i think every game the last two seasons… he used to be a slot corner, moved to safety and played more of a strong safety role, but he can cover since he has a CB backgriound.. 26yr old. played in a few playoff games… Not a bad signing at all for us, but not top on my list either..he had the game winning INT against the Rams
    2nd in tackle to weddle. recent transition to safety but since then he has decreased his miss tackles in each of the two years… Truly a young player on an upward trajectory

  151. 151 Nailed it! said at 2:18 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    Yeah would love to have Brooks in our OLB rotation! Thanks for the info on Gilchrest!

  152. 152 GEAGLE said at 2:20 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    in fairness.. the negative is he gets flagged ALOT, and a year or two ago QBs had like a 100 QBR throwing against him but he is improving in his safety transition…i prefer a guy like Searcy who made a bunch of plays without getting flagged for a single penalty,. our secondary lacked discaplin, that searcy would clean up a bit

  153. 153 oreofestar said at 2:24 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    I think you hit the nail on the head though if we end up paying Max/Kareem it makes sense to get a cheaper guy like Gilchirst/Parker but if we get House or a guy like that we can go nab Searcy (I like him a lot too I think we watch too many Bills games by the way lol)

  154. 154 GEAGLE said at 2:29 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    lol i def watch way too many bills games… need to stop using their roster as my free agent shopping calender every year…………………if the Eagles waste a top pick on a QB, im going to start a trade foles to the bills campaign so I can rock with the bills as my official AFC mistress 🙂

  155. 155 oreofestar said at 2:36 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    The Bills are already my official AFC mistress

  156. 156 GEAGLE said at 2:48 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    the problem is I can tell you anything about their defense in the past 2-3 years, but i dont know the first thing about their offense lol. Unless their offense was on the field against a defense I admire, you can bet I fast forwarded thru seasons of Bills offense… even Sammy Watkins wasnt enough to get me to watch…… i need them to get a top young QB like Foles before I can embrace the entire team… tho the fact that they have the fruit of buddy ryans Loins leading them is def a turn on… only thing missing is a young QB who is the truth like Nick Foles and Im sold… and if the Eagles are too dumb to spend top picks on players that can help foles succeed, and go wasting it on college QBs that Nick will never lose a QB battle against, then I hope they just trade Nick… one foot in, one foot out doesnt no one any good… If you keep turning down friggin valuable trade compensation for Foles then spend your top picks on putting Talent around him like all the other franchises do with their talented young QBs, and when its time to spend a top pick, stop tdrooling over inferior QB brains to Nick, that have the biggest hands and the best punt returner attributes lol. either trade Nick and start whatever friggin QB you want, or spend your top picks strengthening the team around Nick… QB needs continuity,.cant waste another friggin year playing musical chairs,teaching new QBs the offense

    Davon House – DB – Packers
    The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel believes free agent CB Davon House could command $7 million annually on the open market.
    “Because of a dearth of top-end corners and the desperate need for good cover men around the league, the chase for solid corners might get heated,” said Packers beat writer Tom Silverstein. “House could wind up receiving $7 million on the open market.” The Packers want House back, but would prefer a contract closer to $5 million a season. House is Rotoworld’s No. 7 available corner.

    contradicts reports that GB would be able to keep him off the market, which would mean letting older Tramon Williams walk… If we cant have Maxwell, hope this kid hits the market…
    think a doable wish list for the secondary is:
    1) Davon House CB and Da’Norris Searcy Safety
    2) Byron Maxwell CB and Marcus Gilchrist Safety
    one top tier DB and one 2nd tier DB

  170. 170 oreofestar said at 3:25 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    If House wants 7 then I;d go option 2

  171. 171 GEAGLE said at 3:26 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    thats his high negotiatiopoint.. doesnt automatically mean he will get it… but i probably would rather spend 10 on Max than 7 on house too

  172. 172 oreofestar said at 3:29 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    I’d rather not give either of them that number but yeah I’d give Max 10 too over House 7

  173. 173 GEAGLE said at 3:35 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    for the Eagles to be able to go true BPA in the draft, they have some serious work to do in Free agency. next years team NEEDS to be build in free agency NOT the draft, so i need the eagles do make some serious moves and not fuck around in this free agent market. i sat patient giving chip two years to do whatever he wanted.. well year 3 its time to produce and be held to same standards as any other coach we would hire. we wanted to go with stop gaps at certain positions for two years, fine,…but now its time to deliver. Need a serious free agent haul to build next years contending team:
    Safety: Searcy
    CB: House
    OLB/ILB Brooks Reed
    Edge rusher: McPhee, Sheard or Worlids
    should not be a problem when clearing Cary, Cole, BG, Nate, James Casey, Bradley fletcher, Brad smiths salaries off our books…
    get some young OL, WR, TE, ILB in the draft

    one last year of paying foles in circus peanuts, take advantage and put a team around him we can contend with

  174. 174 oreofestar said at 3:38 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    If we get House/Searcy/Worilds/Reed and resign Maclin that’s be great

  175. 175 GEAGLE said at 3:43 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    figure we are clearing alot of money. Cary and Brads salaries off the books can pay for a good corner
    Cole and BG off the books can pay for a good edge rusher and brooks reed
    we paying Maclin, but you figure Brad smiths money comes off the books, next year we clear coopers money off the books and we will be paying for maclin and a stable of young WRs on cheap rookie contracts so paying Maclin shouldnt even be a concern

    Safety upgrading from Nates salary to searcy will cost us some money, but the Cap is going up anyway.
    we also clearing james Caseys money, and Celek will come off the books this year or next and we will be paying a group of TE on cheap rookie contracts..
    in a year or two shady will prob be cleared for a cheap rookie contract
    figure in a year or two, Herremans and maybe mathis money will be off the books and replaced with cheap rookie deals of like fisher or Grasu

    should NOT be a problem having a quality free agent haul that allows us to contend with foles next year

  176. 176 oreofestar said at 3:46 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    we are at about 28.5mil after the Casey cut, cut Cary and Cole and that becomes about 43mil

  177. 177 GEAGLE said at 11:29 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    i wanted to keep Cole and BG, but if we are going to have to replace them anyway in the near future(Cole), we be stupid to just not do it now and take advantage of as good of an edge rusher market as we can ever hope to see. Rather replace them in a stacked OLB market, then get another year out of them and have to replace them in a slim pickings OLB market next year.. Pernell McPhee too good of a young player to pass up, with Worlids and Sheard as backup plans
    I expect Davon House, more than I expect Max, but i figured id throw fans a bone since everyone is so Maxwell excited…. On the other hand, im not so sure Cary wont be here next year, and if Cary isnt cut there is no way we will also pay for Max… there really isnt anyone to cut. i wont even entertain cutting Demeco… if we end up keeping Cary, the only player to waive is James Casey who we already know about, and trent Cole… all the other players we lose are just guys whos contracts expire that we wont resign like Bradley, Nate, Brad Smith, BG, possibly Casey Mathews, but I assume if you sign Brooks Reed you would have to let Casey Mathews walk also

    i cant really see anyone else who we would cut. The Only other possibility is Herremans. I have heard people say he is completely shot and we have to replace him, and i have heard people say he is safe, so i really have no idea which side we are leaning… but once older lineman with alot of games under their belt start missing significant playing time each year, i start to worry…I assume Chip isnt ready to cut Celek, but ill be surprised if he can handle more than one more year of the physicality of his game and how we use him as a quasi lineman more than a TE
    Coop 100% needs to be cut next year, or atleast take serious pay cut. so paying Mac doesnt matter, its all about how much money are you spending on a position as a whole, and next year they will cut coop, and Maclin will be the only WR making any real money. all the other WRs will be on cheap rookie deals for a few more years so there is no reason to lose Maclin

    Chip kelly isnt going to look at the draft to fill next years team. Next years team will be built in free agency, and we have a good amount of needs, so we have no choice but to have a significant free agency this year…
    Curious to see 3 things:
    1) Herremans, stay or go…
    2) Cole, stay, go, restructure… only because of a stacked market at his position i have to lean towards go…
    3) Cary Williams, you know i always thought he would be back whether the consenses agree.. but if you can get a serious CB upgrade this year, than do it, instead of going with Cary again and being forced to upgrade him next year… my only thing is if Cary is staying, I assumed we would give him a new 2 year deal that we can really get out of this year to get his cap number down

    those are really the only major roster decisions of our own guys that we have to make…. other than if we care to extend Nate. Bradlet, Brad smith, Casey Mathews, James Casey, Brandon Graham, but im thinking BG and Casey Mathews are the only ones with a chance at being brought back, everyone else we will allow to leave… i guess there is a chance we could bring back Brad smith for ST, but i only say that because chip is a ST freak. rather cut Maehl and bring back Brad SMith

    The problem is every RB underperformed compared to what you can expect from their size/weight and the odds of that is super small.

    This guy is 6’2, 213, ran 4.35 and did 18 reps at bench. Guy is a total freak of nature, no clue if he can play at all

    Will graduate from UGA in 3.5 years.

  187. 187 Insomniac said at 4:09 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    And with the first pick of the 2015 NFL draft, the Philadelphia Eagles select Chris Conley, Georgia.

  188. 188 ACViking said at 4:11 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    Maybe 2nd Rd!!!

  189. 189 ACViking said at 4:11 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    Conley’s also notorious to UGA fans for being the WR who caught a deflected, short pass on 3rd Down at the 5-yard line with less than 10 seconds remaining, with Georgia needing a TD to beat Alabama and win the SEC East — with no timeouts remaining.

    Conley was tackled short of the goal line and time expired.

    Happened his sophomore season.

    He took enormous heat from the rabid-fan types. Some pretty ugly things said about him.

    Tremendous character, though.

    Yes that was a ‘nice’ catch. But ODB’s in a different league.

  198. 198 Anders said at 6:08 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    I say that catch is more difficult that any ODB has made.

    ODB is of course a much better WR, but in terms of highlight catch, that one is crazier for me because he has to leap horizontally and not just vertically

  199. 199 GermanEagle said at 6:15 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    Brett Hundley/QB/UCLA has been very impressive during the interview process w/teams. Articulate, intelligent and comes across as a leader— Tony Pauline (@TonyPauline) 21. februar 2015

    We might have to embraces it

  204. 204 anon said at 4:52 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Browns “would have considered” UCLA Brett Hundley in the top-ten picks of last year’s

    Hundley, of course, stayed in school and experienced a drop in draft stock, getting exposed when pressured and failing to advance as a passer. This year, Hundley is viewed as a fourth- or fifth-round prospect. The Browns struggled mightily in year one of the Ray Farmer regime, and the idea that they saw Hundley as such a good prospect isn’tpromising, either.

  205. 205 Joe Minx said at 5:04 PM on February 21st, 2015:

  208. 208 FairOaks said at 9:57 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    I don’t think it was Farmer who acquired those picks. They had Banner to thank for one of them (the Richardson trade). They did make the trade with Buffalo to get more picks this year but yeah… you gotta pick the players. Manziel may turn out to be only the second-worst first round pick the Browns made last year…

    Yahoo’s Rand Getlin reports the Seahawks have offered Marshawn Lynch a deal that would pay him between $11 million and $12 million in 2015.

    The deal would span either two or three years, and include $9 million in 2016. “It’s not clear whether Lynch is inclined to accept it,” reports Getlin. The Seahawks seem to be using media reports like this one to put pressure on Lynch, who was reportedly disenchanted by coaches and management during the 2014 season.

    Mayock says 3-4 teams need to have a thumper and a Will at ILB, so having the Kendricks Bros. together in Philadelphia might not work.— Dan Kadar (@MockingTheDraft) 21. februar 2015

    Seems the current NFL times are flying past Mayock.

    No way 3-4 teams need a pure thumper who cant defend TEs or RBs out of the backfield.

    Also Erik Kendricks had over 100 tackles each year playing MLB, I think he is more than enough thumper to play next to Mychal (who is actually the heavier guy)

    Erik+Mychal would fit perfect.

    Mychal is a great pursuit player who is a devasting blitzer, where Erik is the steady tackler, but also got great coverage instincts to cover TEs and RBs

  221. 221 Media Mike said at 5:10 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    Depends on the 3-4. My sense is that while Fangio and Carroll / Bradley / Quinn don’t need a thumper at one of the two ILB spots in their systems Rex, Bowles, and the LeBeau gang do.

    I guess it really depends on what you want the guys to do in your “3-4.”

  222. 222 Anders said at 5:13 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    Lebeau drafted Shazier last year to play next to Lawerence Timmons, so no Lebeau does not need a thumper

  223. 223 Media Mike said at 5:43 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    Fair point, for last year. Let’s see what he does in Tennessee.

    Pittsburgh aside, there are still teams that have a heavier guy inside.

    I’d agree that nobody is out there looking for the 2015 version of Levon Kirkland, but not every team wants two ILBs in the 230 and under range.

  224. 224 Anders said at 5:58 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    The problem is Eagles had Ryans and Mychal who both are around 240, so adding Erik who will be around the 235 is not a problem at all

  225. 225 Media Mike said at 6:07 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    I agree with you there.

  226. 226 wee2424 said at 9:39 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    Pitt like us 2 gaps therefore you have smaller faster LB. Like us.

  227. 227 wee2424 said at 9:38 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    Also depends on the style and skill of the line in front of the LB. 1 gap, 2 gap etc.

  228. 228 GEAGLE said at 8:15 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    No worries. It’s nonsense. You can bet Chip will value two Kendricks. I can see chip now with his simple practical post draft explanation “the way we looked at it, two Kendricks are better then one”..

  229. 229 Rockedupeaglesfan said at 9:13 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    San Fran has shown that thinking to be false.

  230. 230 wee2424 said at 9:37 PM on February 21st, 2015:

    Maybe a 1 gapping system in which i can see a heavier MLB may be of use, but clearly Mayock has not done his HW. The 2 gap helps keep LB clean allowing them to use their speed and quickness.
