Day 3

Posted: May 2nd, 2015 | Author: | Filed under: Philadelphia Eagles | 634 Comments »

The Eagles have had a good draft so far.

1 – WR Nelson Agholor – USC
2 – CB Eric Rowe – Utah
3 – ILB Jordan Hicks – Texas

Today the Eagles have 4 picks.

4th Rd
6th Rd
6th Rd
7th Rd

That’s not ideal. Using both 5th rounders yesterday hurts. To me, there is a big cut-off from the 5th to the 6th round in most drafts. I expect 5th round picks to make the roster. 6th and 7th round picks I hope make the roster, but can live with them as practice squad players to develop.

The Eagles need OL help and a Safety. They’ll have a tough choice to make today. Do they grab OL T.J. Clemmings if he is still on the board? He has a stress fracture in his foot that is obviously scaring teams away. The 4th round might be a good spot for risk/reward.

The Eagles also think highly of Penn State DB Adrian Amos. While he’s not my cup of tea, Amos has great measurables and fits the Eagles scheme. He is solid value at this point so I could live with that pick.

My favorite OG in the draft is still on the board. I had Mark Glowinski pegged as probably a 5th round pick, but taking him in the mid-4th would be just fine with me. I think he’s an ideal fit for the Eagles. I was happy today to learn that the Eagles have shown interest in him.

There are still some interesting OL on the board. The Eagles went to Oklahoma to check out Williams, Shead and Thompson. None of those guys are good athletes. I struggle to see them in the Eagles offense. I don’t like the FSU star Jackson. I think his teammate Matias is actually the better player.

Jeff Stoutland coached Kouandjio at Bama so that is something to keep in mind. Gibson played LT for Virginia Tech. He is a terrific athlete, but needs a lot of work. I think he would be an excellent fit for the Eagles offense and he could be on the board in the 6th round.

OL TJ Clemmings
OG Mark Glowinski
OL Laurence Gibson
OG Darryl Williams
OG Adam Shead
OG Tyrus Thompson
OG Arie Kouandjio
OG Tre Jackson
OG Josue Matias
OG Jamil Douglas
OL Takoby Cofield
OL Terry Poole
OL Chaz Green
OL Sean Hickey
OL Darryl Baldwin
OL Max Garcia

Small school players of possible interest

OL Cole Manhart – 6-4, 298
OL Jacob Rodgers – 6-6, 315
OG Chad Hamilton – 6-2, 292
OL Mike Coccia – 6-3, 301
OL Ross Hall – 6-4, 294

The Eagles could go for the DB in the 4th and still have some interesting OL choices in the 6th. They obviously wouldn’t be ideal prospects, but there is logic to that strategy since there is more depth at OL than at Safety.

We also have QBs Bryce Petty and Brett Hundley still on the board. Does Chip Kelly like either guy?

* * * * *

Here are some possible Eagles draft targets.

QB

Bryce Petty
Brett Hundley

TE

Jesse James
Ben Koyack
Blake Bell
Nick Boyle
CJ Uzomah
Brian Parker

WR

Rashad Greene
Tre McBride
Kenny Bell
Tony Lippett

Vince Mayle

OL

TJ Clemmings
Mark Glowinski
Arie Kouandjio
Darryl Williams
Tyrus Thompson
Jamil Douglas
Josue Matias
Laurence Gibson
Terry Poole
Sean Hickey

DL

Corey Crawford
Gabe Wright
Jordan Williams
Travis Raciti
David Parry
BJ McBryde
Caushad Lyons

OLB

Alani Fua
Max Valles
Shaq Riddick
Obum Gwacham
Deion Barnes
Tony Washington

S

Adrian Amos
Ibraheim Campbell
Cody Prewitt
Kurtis Drummond
James Sample
Cedric Thompson

CB

Doran Grant
Darryl Roberts
Garry Peters
Damian Swann
Randall Evans
Justin Coleman
Cam Thomas

* * * * *

Find a way to get Mark Glowinski and I’ll be a happy man.

Add Glowinski and Clemmings and I’ll be ecstatic.

There is no Safety that I covet. I think Ibraheim Campbell is the guy I like the most of the available players (that make sense for the Eagles).

    The #Seahawks are making a big move, talking trading up to the No. 100 spot to lead off the fourth round. Keep an eye on them.

    Do they have any picks left?!

    Could be moving player or 2016 picks. If deal gets done.

  5. 5 GEAGLE said at 12:16 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Hope we can do a trade with theseahhawks. We need more picks

  6. 6 76mustang said at 12:00 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Vince Mayle in the 7th round…

    Maybe the Eagles can trade back should the QBs keep falling…

    Agree on OL for 4th round – Glowinski please…

  7. 7 Bob Brewer said at 12:03 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    I’m glad they spent the 5th round picks though to get Rowe.

  16. 16 Greg Richards said at 12:11 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Is it okay today to spoil non-Eagles picks? I can’t tell if it has been announced on TV yet. It’s updated on the NFL.com tracker.

  17. 17 McNabbulousness said at 12:11 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    just dont spoil the eagles pick

  18. 18 GermanEagle said at 12:12 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    If you know me you know the answer. Lol.

    Joking aside, I really don’t care. πŸ˜‰

    Yeah, things are going to be wild today, just let us see the Eagles pick announced.

    That’s not how it works.

    Sentiments like this is why people hate you.

  22. 22 Greg Richards said at 12:16 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Yes, but one should try to conduct themselves in a respectful matter taking the opinions of others into consideration.

  23. 23 Greg Richards said at 12:12 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Titans take DT Angelo Blackson of Auburn with the first pick of Round 4.

    tre flowers to the pats

  25. 25 Greg Richards said at 12:14 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Raiders traded pick to Panthers. So, Panthers will take 3 players in this draft? 4 maybe?

  26. 26 Greg Richards said at 12:15 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Panthers take G/T Daryl Williams. Could have been an Eagles’ target.

  27. 27 GermanEagle said at 12:16 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Pats with 4 picks so far: 3 DL and 1 S. Guess you don’t need offense with Tom Brady.

  28. 28 Greg Richards said at 12:17 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    They may have taken Grissom as a TE.

  29. 29 McNabbulousness said at 12:16 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    there goes daryl williams

  30. 30 Mitchell said at 12:16 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    I think Williams was the guy groping Hicks on the Oklahoma tape.

  31. 31 GEAGLE said at 12:17 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    I think Ibrahim Campbell is the most special player available, but I view Rowe as a safety more then a CB, so I’m Not sure if we need to draft another safety, but I wouldn’t mind…

    What happened to all the posters that said drafting Hundley In round 1 would be great value? Lol sheep Baaaaaaah Baaaaaah

  32. 32 Jernst said at 12:18 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    It’s so crazy to me that 2 weeks ago we were all debating the merits of taking Brett Hundley at 20th overall. I thought it was a good piece by D3FB, but boy am I glad we avoided that reach at this point. Who would have thought Grayson and Mannion would go WAY before either Petty or Hundley?

  33. 33 mksp said at 12:19 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    We were also debating taking Clemmings in the 1st Round.

    That’s why the NFL is the NFL, and we’re fans.

    With that said, would love to get him at #113. I stand by my opinion that Hundley can be a successful QB in Chip’s system.

  34. 34 GermanEagle said at 12:20 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Never actually liked Hundley to be honest.

  35. 35 GEAGLE said at 12:23 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Hundley sucked two weeks ago -and he sucks now

  36. 36 Greg Richards said at 12:18 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Jets traded up with Jacksonville. Maybe today is trade day.

  37. 37 Crus57 said at 12:18 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Lots of bored GMs over the last couple of days I guess

  38. 38 EagleNebula said at 12:18 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    How far will petty and hundley fall, and a what point would it be worth taking them?

  39. 39 McNabbulousness said at 12:19 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    for us, udfa

  40. 40 GEAGLE said at 12:22 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    If he goes undrafted, I wouldn’t mind

  41. 41 Greg Richards said at 12:20 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Petty just taken by Jets. Moved up one spot to secure him.

  42. 42 mksp said at 12:21 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Yep. Thank god, did not want him in Philly.

  43. 43 McNabbulousness said at 12:21 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    oh snap, geno just lost his job

  44. 44 GEAGLE said at 12:28 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Doubt it. GENO sucks but it will take a few years before you can put Petty in an NFL game. I love Petty, but as a project.. No way he can play next year

  45. 45 GEAGLE said at 12:21 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Shame The baby born to the murdered woman passed away yesterday… That’s a damn shame, this kid better not have anything to do with this disgusting story.

    He is a murder suspect who police are patiently waiting to talk to on Monday? No urgency for what may be a murder suspect?

    What a horrible story, and I really hope Collins isn’t involved in something so disgusting

  49. 49 GermanEagle said at 12:24 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Wonder who’s starting in week 3 of the regular season !!

  50. 50 Crus57 said at 12:25 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Might be the same answer to both questions!

  51. 51 mksp said at 12:23 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Jags having another strong draft. I wonder when they’ll start making some noise.

  52. 52 Greg Richards said at 12:25 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Jaguars take S James Sample
    Redskins take WR Jamison Crowder

  53. 53 Lewwyn said at 12:25 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    What would people say to packaging the two 6th rounders to move up into the 5th? If that enables you to get maybe a slightly better prospect do you go for it or keep the two 6s and hope you get a better shot at one panning out?

  54. 54 GermanEagle said at 12:30 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Go for the 5th round pick! Who needs another 2 ILBs in the 6th round?

  55. 55 McNabbulousness said at 12:25 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

  159. 159 SteveH said at 12:46 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

  177. 177 Jernst said at 12:58 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Barbre is a question mark at RG, Mathis is potentially holding out, and with the oldest projected starting line in the league without adequate depth, it’s silly to expect that there won’t be any injuries. Even one injury could completely throw our offense off the rails. That’s not “set” at all. If everyone of our starters plays all 16 games, and Barbre turns out to be a decent starter for the first time in his career at 31 years old, then yea I guess we’re set. But, that’s a lot of big ifs.

  178. 178 SteveH said at 12:47 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

  190. 190 SteveH said at 12:51 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    They’re backups, their job description is to come into situations not conducive to their success.

    Also, they were great in preseason? Really?

  191. 191 GEAGLE said at 1:00 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    l trust me dude, big big difference between being a backup coming into a game, and being a backup who finds himself lining up next to a different player every week… You did NOT see the best they had to offer last year, especially since they are young, and still improving players.
    ..
    Heck we act like we think we know guys like Kendricks and Cox, but those kids are still growing and improving, I’m sure we haven’t even seen their best yet…

  192. 192 Jernst said at 12:53 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Cohesion is super important on the oline. But, mostly with communication and setting the protections and making sure free rushers don’t get through. But, even when they executed all the basics correctly the majority of our backups simply got over matched and man handled by the lineman they were blocking. Molk was consistently driven backwards, as were Tobin, Kelly and Gardner. They certainly didn’t look to have the skills regardless of situation.

  193. 193 GEAGLE said at 12:49 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    They are much better then we saw last year, with the exception of Molk who isn’t an NFL player

  194. 194 oreofestar said at 12:49 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    I mean I wish he just tool Clemmings in the 3rd but what lineman that’s left is worth a 3rs rounder

  195. 195 Corry said at 12:51 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    I dunno. According to Schefter, Clemmings has a stress fracture in his foot that cannot be repaired with surgery so his career longevity is in question as his availability this year.

    Knowing that now, i think I understand why they wouldn’t pick him.

  196. 196 Jernst said at 12:55 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    We know he had an old, already healed stress fracture. Schefter just said stress fractures in general can cause those things you listed above and can be hard to fix surgically. But, most stress fractures, particularly one’s that have already healed do not lead to full fractures and don’t require surgery at all.

  197. 197 GEAGLE said at 12:57 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Recent sports medicine, believes their is a direct correlation with weight and that injury… For example, The Sixers are dealing with a navicular stress fracture in Embiid’s foot and their research suggests, keeping him at 275lbs and not let him get to 300lbs is crucial for his future,.. Allegedly 300lbs is the Kiss of death with that injury

  198. 198 Jernst said at 1:01 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    This is absolutely true. And it’s not just a believe it’s just physics and a fact. The more weight the more stress on the bones in the lower extremities, the higher the incidence of that stress causing the bone to develop stress fractures. Foot issues in a 320 pound guy are definitely concerning. But, an old stress fracture that’s already healed and calcified is a lot less of an issue than an active crack that’s not healing and might worsen or develop an actual fracture. This one already resolved and healed without him experiencing any pain or issues from it. That’s a lot less concerning.

  199. 199 GEAGLE said at 1:04 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    The SIXERS did a big study, and they looked at the centers who had careers cut short, like Yao and Todd McCollough, and they concluded that the Bigmen who also had to fight weight issues, often had their career cut short by the injury, and that Bigs who kept their weight down, were able to have long careers for the most part at least

  200. 200 GEAGLE said at 1:05 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    And pain means nothing,. It’s not uncommon for a player to not even know. He has a stress fracture,… For example, Embiid NEVER felt pain, he had no idea he had a stress fracture in his foot, and we kept him out of action for over a year to give him a chance to heal… I wouldn’t touch.clemmings. And I think he was over rated on this site but whatever, not my problem

  201. 201 Jernst said at 2:13 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Pain doesn’t necessarily mean nothing. Pain can be a very reliable symptom of severity. Embiid never felt pain, and he’s going to be fine now that it’s healed. That’s significant. He caught it before it got worse and subsequently developed pain. He was able to sit for a year, let it heal and then take measures to prevent it from happening again.

    No pain means that the stress fracture never progressed to something serious. The fact that it was calcified and an old healed stress fracture, indicates that it was able to resolve even with him playing football everyday. Those are all good signs. Overall, everything you’re saying is absolutely true.

    Again, I’m agreeing with you, just trying to add some context to the discussion. I’m not just pulling things out of my arse either. I’m a doctor and for years was planning on going into orthopedics before switching tracks late in the process. I know what I’m talking about when I talk about stress fractures.

  202. 202 Jernst said at 2:08 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    I’m agreeing with you by the way

  203. 203 Corry said at 12:57 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Schefter made it sound like it’s still an issue (or a new stress fracture).

  204. 204 Jernst said at 1:10 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    The report that came out from the medical exams around the combine are that it was incidentally found during some sort of radiographic imaging (not sure what types of scans or xrays they submit the players to in their exams). They said it was an old, already healed area of calcification that appears to be a resolved stress fracture. The issue is that it might be a one time thing that’s done and resolved or he could be prone to this happening. His foot bones can’t handle the stress of his weight plus the pounding of football and these will become chronic issues. It’s not currently an issue, but it has the potential to effect his ability to play long term, his longevity, his ability to handle the long season without developing these and IF these things develop and then IF they don’t heal and get worse they can progress to a full fracture of the bone, which is extremely difficult to fix surgically due to poor blood flow and healing in the foot. The treatment for stress fractures is just 1-6 weeks of rest, anti-inflammatory meds and then gradually ramping up your excercising. They’re caused when you rapidly increase the amount of stress on your bones. Your bones continually turn over, they break down and rebuild all day every day. Usually the break down and the rebuild are equal and the bone stays healthy. If you rapidly increase the amount of stress and hence break down of the bone, before your body can adapt to that level of stress the rebuilding lags behind and the bone weakens and small micro cracks appear (stress fracture). If you rest, they go away. If you increase your exercise slowly the body adapts and increases the rebuilding of the bone process to compensate and they don’t occur. So either he ramped up his exercising too fast at some point in the last few years, and then eventually the issue resolved and he’s fine now, or his body simply cannot rebuild the bones fast enough given his weight and the stress of playing football under that weight and these things will recur again and again and cause him issues throughout his career. The point is no one knows which it will be. But, the fact that it was an already healed lesion, no active disease, and caused him no problems or symptoms, is a good sign that it’s not a chronic issue.

  205. 205 GermanEagle said at 12:49 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    So the Eagles goal was to pick at least 8 times in this year’s draft.

    They can only achieve this by trading players now.

  210. 210 Jernst said at 12:50 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    I’m a big fan of trading a pick for another pick that’s a round higher the following year. There’s a big difference between 3rd and 4th round picks. I’m always surprised teams don’t take those deals more often.

    At least we know Chip feels comfortable that he’ll be here for 2 more years. However, I’m legitimately scared of our oline depth. An injury or two anywhere on our offensive line could completely alter our offenses ability to operate as it should. Our fragile and relatively immobile QB really needs some attention spent on our Oline. I’m just so surprised that we haven’t addressed oline for two straight years.

    Let’s hope Chip has something else up his sleeve to address the Oline otherwise this could really come back to bite us. At this point I’d trade Boykin straight up for a decent starter at OG.

  211. 211 GEAGLE said at 12:52 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    I totally forgot about Ifo

  239. 239 ACViking said at 12:55 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

  240. 240 SteveH said at 12:56 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    But Chip wants more picks right??? RIGHT??? Jesus he’s a slick talker.

  241. 241 Lewwyn said at 12:58 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    He just wants his guys. And apparently good value. That’s something we usually look for in a GM.

  242. 242 SteveH said at 12:59 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Didn’t say its a bad thing. Chip can talk out of both sides of his mouth all he wants, its just amusing.

  243. 243 SteveH said at 12:56 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    We don’t pick for another 75 selections. Guess I can turn the draft off and take a nap.

  244. 244 Alistair Middlemiss said at 12:56 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    With the Chipper as GM? i would stay tuned lol!

  245. 245 SteveH said at 12:57 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Nothing interesting is going to happen. He’s already flatly stated he never offered anyone in a trade right? So off to sleep with me.

  246. 246 Ray888 said at 1:10 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Could be actually true – 1] Ed did the offering or 2] there were hypothetical conversations; as in, if we did this would you do that. Deniability.

  247. 247 Greg Richards said at 12:58 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    You’ll go to sleep and then he’ll trade Boykin for a 5th and 6th.

  248. 248 SteveH said at 12:58 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    He never offered Boykin in a trade. Boykin was never on the table. He just said so yesterday.

  249. 249 Greg Richards said at 12:59 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    That was yesterday.

  250. 250 SteveH said at 1:02 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Touche and so true.

  251. 251 Bob Brewer said at 1:03 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    And you believe him?

  252. 252 Jernst said at 1:15 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Good point! Chip has never lied to us before.

  253. 253 GEAGLE said at 1:18 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Good point the media has never been wrong πŸ˜‰

  254. 254 OregonDucker said at 12:56 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Do you mean division II quality OL play? I can see that

  256. 256 oreofestar said at 12:59 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    The trading pick for a future picknin higher round strategy is one of my favorites

  257. 257 SteveH said at 12:59 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Also known as the New England Patriots strategy. It’s a sound one.

    Back in another age my band used to play at a bar near U of D called the Stone Balloon, always had a big U of D crowd

  273. 273 Greg Richards said at 1:09 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Ravens took DE Za’Darius Smith. A little awkward fit for 3-4. Not quite big enough for 3-4 DE or fast enough for 3-4 OLB.

  274. 274 GEAGLE said at 1:10 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Hope we can get Shaq Riddick or Fua in round 6..: Edge rusher project to try and develop … Unless Jesse James fall farther then I ever imagind

    so we’re getting 2 probably starters in this draft?

  277. 277 Greg Richards said at 1:12 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    I bet they think Hicks is an eventual starter. If you get 2 immediate starters in a draft, you’re doing well.

  278. 278 anon said at 1:13 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    hopefully they just trade 2 6ths for a 4th next year and call it a day.

  279. 279 Jernst said at 1:13 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Two starters for sure…or at least as sure as you can be in the draft. One possible starter in 2-3 years if he stays healthy and then literally nothing. Eh…not liking the sound of that.

  280. 280 anon said at 1:13 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    better put –that’s what i’m thinking.

  286. 286 GEAGLE said at 1:16 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Can we draft a player who is entering the NBA draft without him putting his name in the draft? For example, if Basketball player Ricco Gaethers from Baylor hasn’t entered the NFL draft, how would a team go about signing him? Can they just sigΕ„ him as a UDFA? Or would he have to put his name in next years draft? Supplemental draft?

  288. 288 Greg Richards said at 1:18 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Guess they’ll take Ayaji. Concern with him is bone-on-bone condition that could shorten his career. But RBs have short careers anyway.

  289. 289 Greg Richards said at 1:17 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Screw his agent..he asked, and we declined… Draft the damn kid!!!

  314. 314 GEAGLE said at 1:30 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Unless you plan on drafting a Tom Brady with our 6th round pick, his Talemt is worth the flier

  315. 315 ICDogg said at 1:32 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    I would take the chance.

  316. 316 GEAGLE said at 1:35 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    It’s not like he is singling us out… I’m sure his agent asked me very team who called him not to draft him, but so what… Draft him, and when he looks around at our OL depth and gets here, good chance he changes his mind, shuts up and cashes the check…..mand if not, we wasted1 of 2 6th round picks taking a flier on one of the top offensive linemans n the entire draft… Well worth the risk of wasted pick and the headache with his agent…

    If Monday he becomes a suspect, you don’t sigΕ„ him. No big deal

  317. 317 GEAGLE said at 1:23 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Still can’t believe the Packers took. My dude Ty MOntgomery in round 3….epic reach!

  318. 318 Greg Richards said at 1:26 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    If the Eagles don’t take any OL and Collins goes undrafted so he has to sign somwhere then the Eagles’ depth chart will look pretty attractive to him when making his decision where to sign with. That’s assuming of course that he’s cleared.

  319. 319 anon said at 1:27 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    wishful thinking but i’m there with you. i think we could move into the 5th.

    could hundley go this round.

  320. 320 Greg Richards said at 1:27 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Packers took Jake Ryan. There’s their ILB. I had the Eagles taking him in the 5th in my final mock.

  321. 321 GEAGLE said at 1:28 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Same.. I had him as our target as well for the inside/outside versatility

    Yeah so OL is not happening this year.

  346. 346 Greg Richards said at 1:38 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Lesson: If you want an OL you need to overdraft them even if there are higher guys on the board.

  347. 347 Mitchell said at 1:38 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Manzc still there boys.

  348. 348 Greg Richards said at 1:39 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

  349. 349 Alistair Middlemiss said at 1:39 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

  350. 350 McNabbulousness said at 1:39 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    and probably S again

  351. 351 Mitchell said at 1:39 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    That’s fine with me. Hopefully Tobin or Barbre is a revelation and we don’t need one so badly.

  352. 352 FairOaks said at 1:40 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    And Mathis stays good and holds out again but then comes to play again?

  353. 353 GEAGLE said at 1:41 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Think it’s safer to say Mahis is staying and everyone running their mouths about us foolishly trading away our talent is full of ish…

  354. 354 FairOaks said at 1:42 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Oh, I think he’s staying this year. Less sure about next year. And at this point we’re drafting for next year.

  355. 355 GEAGLE said at 1:43 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Yeah we certainly can’t count on him much longer, but I feel like all the talk has just been bullshit, hardball game of chicken that we were playng with Mathis and his agent

  361. 361 Greg Richards said at 1:40 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Maybe, some guys still out there in FA that are serviceable – Rob Sims for one

  362. 362 ICDogg said at 1:42 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    There are, I’m sure, a few decent veterans available as a result of new draft talent on those teams. We could use a 6th or 7th to trade for one.

  363. 363 GEAGLE said at 1:42 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Not crazy to see a UDFA OL show some potential

  364. 364 ICDogg said at 1:42 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Adrian Amos, Brett Hundley, Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, Rashad Greene, Sean Hickey.

  365. 365 NinjaP said at 1:42 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Chip about to speak on NFLN

  367. 367 BreakinAnklez said at 1:44 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Ask why he hates the OL!!!

  368. 368 McNabbulousness said at 1:44 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    chip kelly is going to be on NFLN

  369. 369 ICDogg said at 1:44 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Rowe says he doesn’t care that much about whether he is corner or safety, but there’s a different way of playing each position, a different mentality, and he doesn’t want to be moving back and forth.

  370. 370 GEAGLE said at 1:46 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    My money is on him playing safety, because I think the nolan vs walter competition will provide a better starting CB then people realize right now..

    Considering I’m 6’3 and stocky, he is tiny…

  377. 377 ChaosOnion said at 1:50 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Everything I see says 5’11, 229.

  378. 378 nickross23 said at 1:51 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

  380. 380 Mitchell said at 1:46 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Hundley still not picked. Wow

  381. 381 GEAGLE said at 1:46 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Why? Because he runs fast?

  382. 382 GEAGLE said at 1:47 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Have no clue what anyone sees in him

  383. 383 Joe Minx said at 1:47 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    He runs fast

  384. 384 GEAGLE said at 1:48 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Basically… People love punt returner skills in their eagle QBs for some strange reason

  385. 385 Mitchell said at 1:56 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    That’s exactly why.

  386. 386 mksp said at 2:01 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    He doesn’t even run that fast. He spins it though.

    Someone will get a steal with him.

  387. 387 Mitchell said at 4:21 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    I was being sarcastic with him.

  388. 388 ChaosOnion said at 1:47 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

  389. 389 OregonDucker said at 1:55 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Loved that interview and banter. Classic Chip stuff.

  390. 390 Joe Minx said at 1:48 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Really liked Greene

  391. 391 Greg Richards said at 1:49 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Rashad Greene to Jaguars. Awesome fit as slot WR.

  392. 392 GEAGLE said at 1:50 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Thought the Bucs would have taken him

  393. 393 Baloophi said at 1:51 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Per Chip, tried to move up even higher in the 2nd for Rowe.

  394. 394 ACViking said at 1:57 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Interesting.

    Too bad we can’t find out whether he could have traded down and still had Rowe on the board.

  395. 395 GEAGLE said at 1:53 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Few months later but now the media finally has to accept the fact that chip kelly really likes Sam Bradford…

  396. 396 Jernst said at 1:57 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    He was always option 1B if the price for Mariota was anywhere close to what it ended up being. I think Chip is being honest that he inquired. Gave it probably a harder push than he’s obviously letting on. No need to make Bradford and others feel like they’re unwanted. But, he knew all along that he was content with Bradford as the starter if the price for Mariota was too high, which it obviously was going to be. He knew he didn’t want to continue with Nick Foles and got the best upgrade he could. Nothing more the guy can do. We’re a better team with Bradford over Foles.

  397. 397 Joe Minx said at 1:53 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    WAS having a really nice draft

  398. 398 ACViking said at 1:56 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    JM:

    Who’ve they added since 1st rd?

  399. 399 Joe Minx said at 2:00 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Just off the top of my head Matt Jones, Preston Smith, Jamison Crowder, & Martrell Spaight. Might have missed 1.

  400. 400 BreakinAnklez said at 2:01 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Preston Smith, Koundajo

  401. 401 Joe Minx said at 2:01 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Yep, forgot Kouandjio.

  402. 402 ICDogg said at 1:54 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Chip already calling Tim Tebow β€œTimmy”.

  403. 403 Andy Six Score and Four said at 1:55 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Also said that they have great confidence in Sam, Mark and Matt and those will be our 3 quarterbacks moving forward.

  404. 404 ACViking said at 1:55 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    So what’s Tebow doing here?

  405. 405 FairOaks said at 1:56 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    “Competing for a job”

  406. 406 ACViking said at 1:56 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    thx

  407. 407 ChaosOnion said at 1:56 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    FB/TE/Wildcat QB

  408. 408 Andy Six Score and Four said at 1:56 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Chip backpedalled when asked, said he’d compete. The real answer, imo, is exactly what Sanchez earlier. Throw to receivers while Sam heals up, since Kinne won’t be available in that role this year.

  409. 409 GEAGLE said at 2:01 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    TEBOW is here because GJ Kinney told chip he doesn’t want to play QB so he can compete and try to make the team as a ST player and Swiss Army knife role on offense .. Had to replace Kinneys camp arm

  410. 410 Mitchell said at 1:55 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Chip called Rowe a cb a couple times for those of you pining for a position clue.

  411. 411 jpate said at 1:56 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    I noticed that but that just can’t make much sense we have a giant hole in safety and log jam of bodies at CB unless watkins is moving to safety

  412. 412 Mitchell said at 1:57 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    That’s kinda what I’m thinking.

  413. 413 NinjaP said at 1:57 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    I thought watkins bulked up to play safety this year, wasn’t that reported a few days ago.

  414. 414 jpate said at 1:58 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    That was more of his thoughts not the coaching staff

  415. 415 Andy Six Score and Four said at 1:58 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Or we have a giant hole at CB and a huge logjam at safety. Wolff, Watkins, Couplin then some ST guys.

  416. 416 ChaosOnion said at 1:59 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Ed Reynolds is still there, too.

  417. 417 Andy Six Score and Four said at 2:00 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    knew I was forgetting someone.

  418. 418 jpate said at 1:59 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Still don’t see a giant hole we got carroll and thurmond not great but at least proven veteran unlike the safeties

  419. 419 Andy Six Score and Four said at 2:03 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Some think Thurmond is more of a slot corner, and I have just as much confidence in Wolff and Watkins as I do in Carroll.

    I just don’t think our strength in one of those positions is that much different from the other to where that’d be the deciding factor. You play him where you think he’ll be best, which appears to be CB.

    I just hope they don’t keep him on the bench because of the contract they gave Thurmond. As of now, I don’t think that will happen. I’m sure I’ll flip flop on that several times… before dinner.

  420. 420 Mac said at 2:01 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Wolff supposed healthy and ready to go as well

  421. 421 GEAGLE said at 1:56 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    I heard a few different interpretations, but I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder

  422. 422 FairOaks said at 1:56 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Did mention his position versatility a couple times though.

  423. 423 Greg Richards said at 1:57 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Not a huge push for 3rd OLB
    Not a huge push at S if we assume Rowe is a CB

    Depending a lot on Smith and Watkins which is somewhat surprising as some thought that they were Howie’s guys and Kelly wasn’t enamored with them.

  424. 424 NinjaP said at 2:01 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Watkins was a great athlete that could play any secondary spot. He is clearly a chip guy.

  425. 425 Greg Richards said at 2:03 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Roseman has the University of Florida connection.

  438. 438 Joe Minx said at 2:07 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    I don’t see us doing that

  439. 439 ICDogg said at 2:07 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Hundley would be great value even now

  440. 440 GEAGLE said at 2:08 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Not unless he wants to move to punt returner

  441. 441 GEAGLE said at 2:08 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    If he didn’t run fast you wouldn’t even know his name I bet

  442. 442 Greg Richards said at 2:07 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Giants just took a Texas S who the beat writers who cover Texas thinks sucks. Mykelle Thompson. So, it’s probably a great pick.

  443. 443 Alistair Middlemiss said at 2:07 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

  460. 460 GEAGLE said at 2:17 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    They gave it the Russian mobster star tattoos on the front of the shoulders bwahahahah ..put them on the knees of the pants while we are at it, so everyone will know we,kneel to NO man, Aleksander Sasha Emelienenko style!

  461. 461 Jernst said at 2:34 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    the whole thing is mind numbingly terrible. There’s little silver snow flakes on the shoulders, what appears to be angel wings coming out of the shoulder blades on the back that are so far apart you can’t even make out what they are, the ridiculous bridge across the front, the cheesey tattoo symbols on the front breast like we’re a trailor park mamma, the Hawaiian tribal symbols across the bottom…what the hell are you going for?

    Someone presented this in front of other people and convinced them to spend money making this!! It’s just inconceivable to me that a bunch of people sat in a room somewhere and looked at this prototype and were like, “YES! Frank you nailed it!! This is just the type of thing we were looking for to nab that ever elusive Polynesian, russian mobster, Philadelphia-based, Cosby sweater aficionado demographic. Get this prototype to the factory immediately.”

  462. 462 Baloophi said at 2:16 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Looks like they bet on the Eagles taking a QB from Hawaii… and lost.

  467. 467 Greg Richards said at 2:13 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Brett Hundley to Packers. They have time to develop him. Good pick.

  468. 468 mksp said at 2:14 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Great pick.

  469. 469 Greg Richards said at 2:15 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    I think he’s high risk/high reward. I didn’t want to take him in top 3 rounds because I don’t think he’s likely to be a franchise QB but he has the physical skill set but needs time to learn how to be a QB. No risk for Packers in Round 5 with an established starter.

  470. 470 Tdoteaglefan said at 2:23 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Yup, great pick. He could develop well behind the best QB in the league, won’t have to start as soon as he probably would if he came here, wish him the best of luck

  471. 471 mksp said at 2:14 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    We’re gonna regret not taking him when we had a chance.

  472. 472 Jernst said at 2:15 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    I guess they’ll sit Hundley for 6 years to eventually take over for Rogers.

  473. 473 Alistair Middlemiss said at 2:17 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Develop him for 2-3 years and then flip him for a 2 in 2018, after a couple of mind blowing pre season games. Great for Packers and great for Brett to be honest.

  474. 474 mksp said at 2:17 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Yeah agreed.

  475. 475 mksp said at 2:14 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Packers trade up to take Hundley.

  476. 476 jpate said at 2:16 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Rodgers just demanded a trade

  477. 477 Alistair Middlemiss said at 2:17 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    off Bradford straight up? worse case we can add that 2016 3rd rounder.

  478. 478 Jernst said at 2:18 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    43 picks until we’re on the board again…ugh this is terrible. I’ve been on a constant downward swing since the 3rd round

    Well there is a good chance reaching for an OL in 2016 in the 3rd is a better player than a reach in the 4th in 2015….

  497. 497 Greg Richards said at 2:25 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Haven’t loved their draft. Jones was good but locker room chemsitry is key for a team and you bring in a felon like Hardy and a guy with mental issues(even if not his fault). Their 3rd and 4th round picks were both reaches IMO.

  498. 498 Mac said at 2:25 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

  499. 499 xmbk said at 2:28 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

  501. 501 xmbk said at 3:08 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Agreed, he fell for more than just pot reasons.

  502. 502 ACViking said at 3:18 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Has time to put on weight, get his life straightened out.

    Big risk/reward play by Cowboys.

    If this kid gets more stout, even as a 2-down pass rusher (like Vinny Curry), he could be a great choice.

    Come to think of it, Vinny Curry’s a 2-down player as a 2nd Rd pick.

  503. 503 xmbk said at 3:59 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Good analogy. Except I like VC.

  504. 504 GEAGLE said at 2:26 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Worst eagle draft ever… Not in terms of our picks, just in terms of a fan looking forward to watching the draft. It’s bad enough the broadcast of day 3 has comp,etely been butchered
    ..
    What’s funny is before today, a lot of the media were down on the draft for our draft “not be exciting enough after missimg out on MM”.. The first 3 picks didn’t “excite”…. Imagine what they are saying now lol..

    The media spent months reporting a bunch of nonsense, and now they are pissed that it is anti climatic compared to the bogus expectations they put in everyone’s head? Lol

    Love UDFAs heck I start looking for them in round 7… This message board is a poor representation of Eagles fans and media.. Tom is more responsible then 90% of local eagle media, and fans here are Prob in the upper 10percentile of educated eagle fans..

    So while substance draft and finding value late is exciting for us, the rest of eagle nation probably doesn’t view it the way we do,,

  508. 508 Greg Richards said at 2:33 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    We have more roster spots to sign UDFAs this year than in the past couple of years too. There were 68 players on the team pre-draft IIRC so if we stay with only 6 draft picks then there’d be space for 16 UDFAs.

  509. 509 GEAGLE said at 2:34 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Yup, and we will have some more money to throw around

  510. 510 James Skip Carl said at 2:37 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    I think we’re saving our money, so instead of paying a bunch of rookies were going to over pay for an UDFA named Collins

  511. 511 oreofestar said at 2:38 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Yeah if you want him gotta spend a pick on him

  512. 512 Greg Richards said at 2:39 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Each team has the same amount of money for bonuses to give to UDFAs no matter how many you sign. So that doesn’t really matter. Where teams can make it more attractive for UDFAs to sign is by guaranteeing a portion of their first year base salary. Most UDFAs don’t make the team anyway so this is almost like a signing bonus.

  513. 513 xmbk said at 2:29 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Exactly, September is when it starts to count. Until then…

  514. 514 oreofestar said at 2:29 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Love the draft, besides the Hicks pick I love the moves did a great job moving out of the 4th

  515. 515 GEAGLE said at 2:33 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    I even like the hicks pick and I don’t assume we are losing Mykal .. I like an extra 3rd next year…. I have no problem with what we are doing in terms of team building, im talkimg about it having to be the worst draft in terms of watching the draft

  516. 516 oreofestar said at 2:36 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    No doubt, draft has been boring and it’s a messz they are so many ociks behind if they even announce them and then people complain if you spoil a pick from 10 minutes earlier.

  517. 517 mksp said at 2:32 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    For those curious, we traded #145 to MIA as part of the Rowe deal, and the following players were taken afterwards (to date):

    Stefon Diggs
    Brett Hundley
    Davis Tull
    Jay Ayaji
    Cedric Thompson
    David Parry
    Jarvis Harrison

  518. 518 xmbk said at 2:38 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    No one on the board would make me regret that move. No guarantees in life, but they got who they wanted. Of course someone drafted after Rowe will end up with a better career, but that doesn’t change that it was a good move.

  519. 519 mksp said at 2:41 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    I agree. Just fodder for conversation while we wait for another 40 picks.

  520. 520 ACViking said at 2:42 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    MKSP:

    I wonder if the Eagles moved out of the 4th (after missing on someone selected earlier) and also traded both 5th Rd picks because their board was very, very lean in that area.

  521. 521 mksp said at 2:47 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    It’s a good question, and I don’t think anyone is arguing that we got bad value for any of the moves.

    Based on some of the visits, I would tend to agree with you, it seems we’re targeting a lot of guys in the lower rounds, and didn’t want to overdraft them.

    But this all assumes that Chip & Co. have an understanding of “value.”

    Did they think Terry Poole and Glowinksi were going to be there in the 6th? Because if they did, they were horribly wrong, and SEA just ate their lunch taking those two guys.

    It’s an interesting strategy if it works. Not very typical.

    I am glad we replaced the Nick Foles pick we lost next year.

  522. 522 ACViking said at 2:49 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    But this all assumes that Chip & Co. have an understanding of “value.”
    ___________

    Exactly.

    When does the answer start to become clear?

  523. 523 mksp said at 2:53 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    I think the value of their picks have been good. Haven’t reached this year. So that’s one part of the answer.

    Let’s see who we pick up in the 6th / 7th / UDFA Round. If those guys end up playing meaningful roles for PHI down the line, then it could be that Chip just happens to be good at this GM thing.

  524. 524 ACViking said at 2:54 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    good theory

  525. 525 Joe Minx said at 2:33 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Fack! I wanted Emanuel

  526. 526 Greg Richards said at 2:34 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Damn, Chargers just took OLB Kyle Emanuel. Hoped he’d slip to 6th rd but had him as 5th in all my mocks.

  527. 527 Joe Minx said at 2:39 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Yeah I love small school pass rushers.

  528. 528 ACViking said at 2:34 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    1. β€œHe was our highest rated player by far,” said Chip Kelly. β€œWe had him rated in the second round.

    2. Chip Kelly said . . . the Eagles rated [him] in the top 50
    ____________

    1. Player in question: Jordan Hicks

    2. Player in question: Matt Barkley

  529. 529 Greg Richards said at 2:36 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    The difference is in who is doing the ratings or at least who’s in charge of the team doing the ratings

  530. 530 ACViking said at 2:37 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Kelly wants you to believe that, no question.

    No way he chats up Barkley the way he did unless he liked him a lot.

  531. 531 GEAGLE said at 2:36 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    People are down on hicks because he wasn’t a popular name, if we would have drafted Paul Dawson instead of him fans would be thrilled, when in reality Hicks runs circles around fat ass Dawson with His name brand and no substance

  532. 532 ACViking said at 2:38 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Not down on him.

    Just Kelly’s quote reminded me of what he said about Barkley.

    Bottom line — Kelly’s right that the draft is close to a crapshoot.

  533. 533 GEAGLE said at 2:39 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Eagles and his coach strong had him going in round 2… I’ll trust that over the mock community consensus Til proven otherwise…

  534. 534 Mac said at 2:41 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    In reality, the ping pong ball idea would probably produce similar results to the actual draft.

  535. 535 mksp said at 2:42 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Nobody is down on him.

    GEAGLE just insists on constructing strawmen so he can rant about them.

  536. 536 ACViking said at 2:42 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    just asked you a question — hope you see it

  537. 537 Bob Brewer said at 2:54 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    If a QB can’t throw the 15 yard out, they can’t play in the league. Barkley can’t do that and how the Eagles graded him in the top 50 is beyond me.

  538. 538 ACViking said at 3:15 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Belichick (when doubling as D3FB) has argued that Barkley’s shoulder never returned to 100%.

    (I believe he’s written that)

  539. 539 Bob Brewer said at 2:37 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Exactly why I don’t mind them trading up. They can’t evaluate good players in lower rounds, so use those picks to get a better pick in the higher rounds.

  540. 540 GEAGLE said at 2:38 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Beau allen and UDFA Trey Burton strongly disagree

  541. 541 ACViking said at 2:39 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    I’d forgotten that Beau Allen was in for a NC visit last year.

    Anyone left in the draft who came to NC?

  542. 542 Joe Minx said at 2:40 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Yup. A good amount I think. Most of their visits were late-round projections.

  543. 543 xmbk said at 2:40 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    And Barkley was a good pickup. QB is the biggest crapshoot of them all, still have to take your shots.

  544. 544 Henly125 said at 2:39 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    I really wonder what the plan is at LB.

  545. 545 GEAGLE said at 2:42 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Let competition sort it out….. Remember chip values ST even more then most. He targeted special team aces in free agency last year, I wouldn’t put it past him to spend a 3rd on a LB he views as a ST stud for like the first 3 years of his career,,..

    Love what we are doing.. Stack the talent at positions and let competition sort it out….

  546. 546 xmbk said at 2:43 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Depth and competition. Helps ST play there as well. Pretty sure minimizing the effect of injuries is a goal across the board.

  547. 547 Jernst said at 2:56 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    I think the coaches are smart enough to know that you can’t 100% count on a 31 year old Ryans to return to form less than a year removed from his second achilles repair (even if it’s on the other leg…hell maybe it’s worse that his one good leg is now f’d up too).

    I don’t think DeMeco is pencilled in as a starter. Bringing him back at a reduced price is a classy move by Chip for our defensive leader. But, at the end of the day he’s not here expected to start and be at full strength from day one. The best you can reasonably expect is that he offers leadership, depth and a stabilizing force for the new LBs we’re bringing in and expecting to learn a new system. Worst case scenario he just doesn’t recover enough to be functional anymore and he gets cut either this summer or next off season. At best, he’s a low risk insurance policy with high leadership intangibles for a team that lost a lot of stars and leaders this offseason.

    Kiko is also recovering. He tore his ACL in preseason so he should be good to go by the time the season rolls around. But, again there’s no guarantee he returns to form or doesn’t have a set back at some point. Right now he’s pencilled in as one of the starters and expected to be a difference maker like he was as a rookie. Knowing that it’s not a foregone conclusion though, we have Meco around as insurance, hoping that between these two rehabbers, one will be able to start.

    I think Kendricks stays this year and is certain to start if he does. This will be one last year to see how he progresses as a LB in this system. If he continues to be inconsistent, unable to make calls on the field and/or gets hurt again he walks next year. If he turns that corner and becomes a stud, he might be a top priority free agent for us to resign or depending on how the other players recover/develop is allowed to leave. Otherwise, he’s too valuable to next years defense that has two other injured players recovering to give up for anything less than a 2nd round pick.

    Hicks is here because DeMeco will most certainly be gone in 2 years, might be gone a lot sooner and Kendricks is 50/50 to be here next year.

    Reasonable expectations of the coaching staff is that DeMeco plays leadership roll and can play in obvious running situations and add needed depth, but probably ends up being phased out and gone by next year, Kiko returns to form and is a starter for years to come, the starter next to him in the future is either Kendricks if he becomes an all pro with Hicks behind him as the top LB backup. Or if Hicks comes on strong and Kendricks is up and down, the future is Hicks and Kiko with DeMeco being phased out.

    That’s my best guess

  548. 548 mksp said at 3:01 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Kendricks / Alonso / Ryans will likely be in a rotation.

    Kendricks will walk for big money after the season, and maybe we’re more quiet in FA, so we get meaningful comp picks for him, Curry and Boykin. Take a page from Ozzie’s book.

  549. 549 Jernst said at 3:07 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    I’m a lot more confident after this past week that Curry might be in the long term plans. A guy that can generate that type of pressure and deliver 8-10 sacks as a rotation guy is extremely valuable. And, despite the awkward scheme fit, I think the coaching staff realizes how much value he adds to the defense.

    I think we’ll make a strong push to resign him and, ultimately, it will come down to whether or not Curry wants to go play for a 4-3 team or if he’s happy getting a decent sized contract to play for his favorite team as a key rotational pass rusher that plays 40% of the snaps.

    His situation might turn out like Grahams where everyone was convinced he was gone and the market wasn’t significantly better for him to move to another team.

  550. 550 ACViking said at 3:18 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Kendricks will walk for big money after the season

    ____________

    Yes. Take that to the bank!

    And the Ozzie theory

  551. 551 Andy Six Score and Four said at 3:27 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    I at least want to see Kiko and Kendricks side-by-side for 1 season.

  552. 552 ACViking said at 3:19 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Belichick’s had no problem letting most of his guys walk in the 00’s for comp picks.

    select players got extended.

  553. 553 Alistair Middlemiss said at 2:40 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Picks i could see in the 6th round.

    Dres Anderson – You can almost lock this in – Chip was all over him at his Pro Day and is perfect Redshirt guy with big upside.
    Kenny Bell – Great Value at this point.
    Tre McBride – Surely wont be there at 191? Crazy he has dropped this far

    Max Valles – Developmental pass rusher i like

    Ben Koyack – good blocking TE who has enough athleticism to be a pass catcher.

    Derron Smith – Don’t love him but has to be value at some point.

    Andy Gallik and BJ Finney – both are centre’s who can play guard, would be good swing guys for depth.

  554. 554 Greg Richards said at 2:41 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    All those guys would be good values.

  555. 555 mksp said at 2:43 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Zach Hodges still available as well?

  556. 556 Jernst said at 2:43 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    I hadn’t realized that Dres Anderson’s dad is Flipper Anderson until I just re-looked him up when you mentioned him.

  557. 557 ACViking said at 2:44 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Flipper still holds the record for most yards receiving in a single game — on (the original) MNF against the G-men.

    He kept going long and QB Jim Everett kept hitting him in stride

  558. 558 Jernst said at 3:07 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Did not know that. You are a true encyclopedia of football knowledge.

  559. 559 Mitchell said at 2:54 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Alani Fua, Greg Mancz as well

  560. 560 Jernst said at 2:41 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    I don’t think enough people realized just how weak this draft class actually was overall. Besides the lack of any really intriguing players at the top of the draft, outside of the top 2 QBs who were, in all actuality, pretty mediocre prospects compared to other draft class’ top QBs, the first round only had about 15-17 true first round picks, everything else after that was a wash until about pick 45. After that it’s just been a bunch of bleh. Not a lot of intriguing players in the middle rounds that would get me excited and the few that were supposed to be good values in those late 2nd, 3rd and 4th rounds have almost all taken nose dives down the board and lasted until the 5th round. Really boring uninspiring draft overall.

  561. 561 Alistair Middlemiss said at 2:44 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    I don’t totally disagree – i like a lot of the 2nd round guys and i think that group of players will match up with other draft classes. Think 3-4th rounds had a bigger drop off than normal but there is a lot of value late round. This is not the 2013 draft.

  562. 562 Greg Richards said at 2:42 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Bills take a RB. Wouldn’t surprise me if they cut Bryce Brown after the draft. You could tell by Ryan’s comments that he wasn’t high on him.

    Dolphins take CB/WR Tony Lippett.

  563. 563 xmbk said at 2:45 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Brown was basically the player we gave up to move up for Rowe. 4th became a 5th in Bradford trade.

  564. 564 Joe Minx said at 2:44 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Would love Darryl Roberts with one of our 6ths if he’s still there

  565. 565 mksp said at 2:59 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    This is a good call, we know they like him…

  566. 566 GEAGLE said at 2:46 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    You know how we know we are improving as a franchise? Conpetition at training camp should be drastically tougher at most spots then it has been any year since chip arrived… It should be tougher to make this eagle team then any of chips past teams and that’s a great sign of growth towards building this program… Fair open competition pushes the cream to the top and increases Player growth. Should be a very competitive training camp

  567. 567 Jernst said at 3:14 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    This is very true. Except at Offensive Line. Everything after the top 4 is wide open. WR won’t have Maehl’s, Will Murphy’s or Brad Smith’s making this team next year. No way we’re arguing about Kenjon Barner and Matthew Tucker at RB. Lots of competition at CB now and a good amount more at Safety with Watkins, Wolff and maybe Rowe. Things are looking good.

    I just hope we find a diamond in the rough along the Oline. Lucking into another Mathis is literally our best hope at this point.

  568. 568 Joe Minx said at 2:47 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Agh. Cards took Riddick. We had interest.

  569. 569 Joe Minx said at 2:51 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Cards love them some fast WRs. Nelson had the fastest combine time.

  570. 570 Greg Richards said at 2:56 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    5-10, 156? DeSean Jackson could break him in two.

  578. 578 Tdoteaglefan said at 3:00 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    cowgirls get Ryan Russel

  579. 579 Greg Richards said at 3:00 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    That’s not a bad pick but they still need a RB.

  580. 580 Joe Minx said at 3:01 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Didn’t a lot of you here like Kenny Bell, or was that people on the EMB?

  581. 581 mksp said at 3:01 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    We liked him, was a D3FB favorite.

  582. 582 Mitchell said at 3:12 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

  587. 587 Joe Minx said at 3:06 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

  590. 590 ACViking said at 3:06 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Here are the last 8 undrafted players who visited Nova Care:

    Obum Gwacham, Oregon State – OLB

    Alani Fua, BYU – ILB

    Darryl Roberts, Marshall – CB

    Randall Evans, KU – CB

    Travis Raciti, SDS – OL/DE

    Adrian Coxson, Stony Brook – WR

    Randall Telfer, USC – TE

    Jimmie Hunt, Mizzou – WR

  591. 591 mksp said at 3:06 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Good work.

    Joe Cardona gone. Patriots.

  592. 592 ACViking said at 3:07 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    just saw.

    Belichick and Kelly thinking the same way . . .

    But valuation was different, perhaps.

  593. 593 Joe Minx said at 3:08 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    I’ve never heard of a LS being drafted in the 5th round.

    That guy is out on a ledge.

  596. 596 mksp said at 3:08 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Belichick can afford to be a bit more aggressive in allocating resources to save a tenth of a second on a long snap in two years.

  597. 597 ACViking said at 3:09 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    aside:

    Cardona’s selection should help the Service Academies recruit LSers

  598. 598 ACViking said at 3:07 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Make that 8 . . .

    Cardona — remarkably — taken in Rd 5 by the PATs

  599. 599 Joe Minx said at 3:11 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Saints just traded up with Skins

    Cardona may be the best LS to come out in the draft ever. His snap speed is almost a tenth of a second faster than average. That said, he’s from Navy and has to serve his commitment. Shouldn’t be eligible to play for at least 2 years.
    Eagles actually used on of their 30 allotted pre-draft visits on him so that shows he’s not your typical LS. Still, a weird pick.

  605. 605 McNabbulousness said at 3:10 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    wow you’d have to have some transcendent david robinson-eque skill at the LS position to be drafted from navy and have to wait 2 years to play

  606. 606 ACViking said at 3:11 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Secretary of Defense has the authority (it’s been reported) to alter Cardona’s service commitment and let him go directly into the Reserves.

  607. 607 Greg Richards said at 3:11 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    So, 3 out of last 4 picks have been P, LS, FB. Good for us.

    Woke up from my nap…. what craaaaaaazy moves did we make while I was out.

  609. 609 Greg Richards said at 3:17 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    How long have you been sleeping for?

  610. 610 SteveH said at 3:23 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    90 minutes ~~

  611. 611 Joe Minx said at 3:17 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Nothing. But the Pats took a long snapper in the 5th. Imagine if we’d done that.

  612. 612 Alistair Middlemiss said at 3:18 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Pats selected a LS who will serve 2 years in the Navy in the 5th round…

    Chip Kelly did an interview on NFL Network. Don’t have much else.

  614. 614 SteveH said at 3:39 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Did he say coachy organizational stuff like we stuck to our board and we think we got great value or was it more interesting.

  615. 615 FairOaks said at 4:00 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    It was a bit funnier, but basically. They think Hicks is a 3-down linebacker. And it’s been safe to buy Bradford jerseys since we traded for him.

  616. 616 scratcherk said at 3:19 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    I think we basically HAVE to take Lael Collins at this point right?

  617. 617 ACViking said at 3:22 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    maybe a team with a 7th rd comp pick.

    whatever info’s coming out of the Baton Rouge P.D. is not good.

    Not saying it’s bad. Just not good.

  618. 618 Joe Minx said at 3:19 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Andy Reid picking now 2 in a row

  619. 619 Greg Richards said at 3:23 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    They took 2 guys I’ve never heard of

  620. 620 Joe Minx said at 3:24 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    I know O’Shaugnessy the TE. The other guy NFL.com doesn’t even have height & weight for lol.

  621. 621 Joe Minx said at 3:26 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    The 6th round is in sight gentlemen.

  622. 622 ACViking said at 3:28 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Maybe Kelly can trade one of the 6th’s for a 5th in 2016.

    Then next year, trade that 5th for a 4th in 2017.

    So by 2020, he’ll have an extra 1st

  623. 623 unhinged said at 4:28 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    This is your brain after an NFL draft. I love the long view.

  624. 624 Joe Minx said at 3:29 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Yes more Alex Flanagan plz

  625. 625 ACViking said at 3:29 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    not happy with Stark?

  626. 626 Joe Minx said at 3:29 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    I like her too. Was time though. πŸ˜›

  627. 627 Greg Richards said at 3:29 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    In the 6th round, finally.

  628. 628 Alistair Middlemiss said at 3:29 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Yeah and no one traded.

  629. 629 GEAGLE said at 3:30 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Feel like I been watching round 5 for 7 hours

  630. 630 GEAGLE said at 3:29 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    to me jordan Hicks is No Reach if you are comfortable with his medical. The only players that went after him in round 3 who graded higher for me were Daniele Hunter and Carl Davis…

  631. 631 Patrick said at 3:30 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Did Derron Smith kill somebody too? Seems like a player who just keeps falling and we know nothing. Probably has either an injury or a character concern.

  632. 632 KAJomo said at 3:30 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Tre McBride too.

  633. 633 ACViking said at 3:30 PM on May 2nd, 2015:

    Where did Louisville collect all these long OLBs?
