Draft Craziness Starts Early

Posted: April 14th, 2016 | Author: | Filed under: Philadelphia Eagles | 352 Comments »

The draft isn’t for another 2 weeks, but we already have a huge trade. The Rams moved all the way up from pick 15 to the top overall pick.

This affects the Eagles in a big way.

St. Louis didn’t make that jump for the heck of it. That’s a deal you make to go get a QB. Okay, so which one? Initial reports had them going for Carson Wentz. Then Adam Schefter reported the Rams were focused on Jared Goff. So we really don’t know right now.

I look at Jeff Fisher and can see him going for Wentz.

Think about Fisher’s past. He had his most success with a big, strong-armed, athletic QB from a small school. Steve McNair helped Fisher get to the Super Bowl. Wentz isn’t exactly like McNair, but there are more than a few similarities. Wentz also makes sense when you think about the Rams offense being based around RB Todd Gurley. Wentz has the arm strength to throw deep and stretch the field, which makes it tough to load the box. Wentz also runs very well, making him dangerous on bootlegs and plays like that.

There is also a case to be made for Goff. I just happen to think Wentz makes more sense for Fisher and the Rams. I’m not alone.

With Cleveland and possibly SF looking for QBs, it will be tough for one to slide down to the Eagles at 8. Suddenly trading up to pick 2 makes a lot of sense. The Eagles could also talk to the Ravens about a deal for the number 6 pick. If Cleveland doesn’t go QB, just getting ahead of SF may be enough. It is possible that neither the Browns or Niners will go for a QB. Both organizations have depleted rosters and need more than one guy.

Goff is still my preference for the Eagles. We’ve heard they prefer him. We’ve heard Wentz is their guy. We’ve also heard a lot about them having interest in Kevin Hogan, a mid-round target. The Eagles are doing a great job of keeping everyone confused.

We don’t know anything for sure, but that’s a group of different reporters all claiming the Eagles were in serious pursuit of the top pick. You would have to think they would keep talking to teams about moving up, especially if the cost is less.

The key will be if there is a player they still covet. Not like, but covet.

Do the Eagles have Wentz and Goff rated similarly? Do they really want both players? If not, they’ll only move up if the guy they like isn’t picked.

You also have to wonder if this means Paxton Lynch becomes a serious target at number 8. I know the Eagles have checked him out thoroughly, but have no clue if they like him. I can’t stress this enough. You don’t take a QB for the heck of it. You have to truly believe in the player.

If the Eagles were truly trying to get to #1, there had to be a player they really wanted. It will be interesting to see if today’s deal takes that player off the board or if it just complicates the pursuit of him.

I’m not a big schedule guy.

Starting with Cleveland. Cool.

Finishing with Dallas. Cool.

SEA-GB-CIN. Not so cool.

BGN did a terrific job of putting together some cool observations on the schedule.

The Men in the Middle

Posted: April 14th, 2016 | Author: | Filed under: Philadelphia Eagles | 365 Comments »

2011 was such a strange season. Juan Castillo was the defensive coordinator. The Eagles tried to build a scheme around the Wide 9 front. There was a lockout, meaning virtually no offseason for players and coaches to work together. And the Eagles chose to make rookie Casey Matthews the MLB.

Matthews was a good college player, but nothing special. Having him start at MLB in that scheme in an abbreviated offseason was asking for trouble. Putting Moises Fokou on one side and Jamar Chaney on the other certainly didn’t help matters.

The Eagles should be worlds better than that at LB this year.

The media got to talk to Jordan Matthews, Eric Rowe and Jordan Hicks yesterday. The focus seemed to be Hicks, who will now take over as the MLB. So Hicks has a new position and is in a new scheme. Les Bowen has more on that.

Hicks said he isn’t put off moving from Bill Davis’ 3-4 to Jim Schwartz’s 4-3, from inside linebacker to MIKE.

“It’s something I’ve done quite a bit of. I played it in college,” he said.

But of course, he didn’t play it for Schwartz, behind defensive ends who will frequently pin their ears back in a Wide 9.

“A lot of it, schemewise, is just ‘Attack. Attack. Attack. D-line, just go.’ That’s his mentality, is go, and the linebackers clean it up,” Hicks said. “I think it makes you rely more on your instincts.”

Is Hicks the key to making the setup work?

“I think there’s different focuses for different positions,” he said. “Obviously, the corners are one-on-one a lot. They’ve gotta be able to hold up, and the d-line’s gotta go, and we gotta clean up, so we’ve all got our different things we’ve got to be able to do to make the puzzle fit.”

Hicks said he’s lucky that the new terminology is familiar to him…from back in his college days. It isn’t exactly the same, but is similar enough that it will help him pick it up quickly.

The Eagles know Hicks is smart. He was new to the 3-4 last year and learned that quickly, which is all the more impressive because he was a rookie and having to figure out everything. This year he can focus on the scheme, which is simpler than last year’s. The mental side of things should not be an issue.

The biggest concern with Hicks right now is durability. Injuries hurt his career at Texas and he missed several games last year after getting hurt in the win over Dallas. You might remember that game.

It seemed so cruel to lose him after such an epic moment.

Hicks knows he needs to stay healthy and to stay on the field.

Hicks showed the same traits in college he showed with the Eagles last season. He lasted until the third round of the draft because of concerns about his durability. Hicks suffered significant hip (2012) and Achilles’ (2013) injuries at Texas.

Hicks said he can’t worry about what he can’t control, but if there is anything he can do to prevent ligament and tendon tears, he wants to do it. He said he was “getting blood work done” in an effort to find out more about his body.

“That’s something I’m trying to tackle, and I really do think it’s behind me. Does it give me something to prove? Absolutely . . . I’m doing everything I possibly can to learn about myself, to understand my body, to tackle that side of it, so when I am on the field, I won’t have anything to worry about,” he said.

Injuries are partly bad luck. But Hicks is smart to do research and to try to figure out if there is anything he can do to help prevent them.

*****

I think having good players around him will help Hicks. Nigel Bradham has played in this scheme and done well so he can be a voice of experience. Mychal Kendricks. has started 53 games for the Eagles in the past 4 years. He logged some time in the Wide 9 as a rookie so this scheme won’t be completely new to him.

Kendricks is probably best suited to playing WIL in the 4-3 so this should be an ideal situation for him. Some fans tell me how awful Kendricks was last year.

“He was terrible.”

“He sucked.”

Ugh. No, Kendricks was far from terrible. He was second on the team in tackles. He had 3 sacks and 6 TFLs. He broke up 3 passes and had a FF.

Kendricks did have some bad plays to be sure. He struggled in coverage at times, getting badly burned on a few memorable plays. But anyone who thought he was terrible should go back and watch LB play from 2009-2011. Go watch Jamar Chaney, Akeem Jordan, Moises Fokou, Casey Matthews, Joe Mays and Ernie Sims and then talk to me about terrible LB play.

Kendricks is frustrating because he is so talented and doesn’t always play to that level, but he is a solid starter that will make some big plays (and some big mistakes). We’ve seen guys that shouldn’t be starting who kept jobs for multiple years.

Bradham, Hicks and Kendricks should be a much better set of LBs than Fokou, Matthews and Chaney. Ugh. Just typing that brings back some less than awesome memories.

The schedule comes out tonight.

NO THANKSGIVING GAMES…OR ELSE!!!!!

That is all.

More on Zeke

Posted: April 12th, 2016 | Author: | Filed under: Philadelphia Eagles | 277 Comments »

I would be fine with the Eagles spending pick 8 on RB Ezekiel Elliott. Generally speaking, spending high picks on RBs is dumb. RBs can be found all over the place. The difference is that I think Elliott is a special back. To get one of those, you generally have to draft them early.

Benjamin Allbright, a football analyst, went on WIP and said something interesting.

Apparently he went a step further and said the Eagles might even trade up for Zeke.

I would be shocked if that happened. Beyond shocked, whatever that is. I like Elliott quite a bit, but you just don’t sink a bunch of resources into a RB. And I think Howie Roseman knows better than to do that. This rumor feels like something the Eagles are pushing to try and get teams distracted from all the QB talk.

I still have my money on the Eagles taking a QB with pick 8.

*****

There are a lot of games being played by teams with Top 10 picks. The Titans want to move down. The Browns want to move down. The Eagles want to move up. Dallas wants a QB. Or a RB. Or a defender. The Eagles are set on a QB. Unless they go RB. The Titans can’t decide between Laremy Tunsil and Ronnie Stanley. And so on.

None of us knows what the heck is really going on.

Don’t get too fired up, good or bad, by the rumors. You’ll hear one guy say the Eagles have a deal in place to move up to number 2 and then a couple of days later you’ll hear the Eagles are definitely moving back.

You want to know the truth?

Just hurry up and wait.

*****

Someone asked about Connor Cook, the QB from Michigan State. I have him rated as a 3rd round guy. He has the potential to become an NFL starter. I just don’t think he makes enough smart decisions for a guy with his amount of experience.

I do not like the fact he skipped the Senior Bowl. It would have been good to see him play in that environment so we could compare QBs to QBs in a like setting.

Cook has NFL potential. I just think there are some holes in his game that shouldn’t be there for a guy who played in the system he did for as long as he did.

My Top 5 QBs

1 – Jared Goff
2 – Carson Wentz
3 – Paxton Lynch
4 – Kevin Hogan
5 – Connor Cook

Cook is easily a more talented passer than Hogan. I just happen to think Hogan sees the field better, reads defenses better and is a better decision-maker. Those are huge factors at QB.

*****

Do not get too fired up about the rumors that Fletcher Cox turned down a mega-deal from the Eagles.

We have no idea if this is true or not. We do know the Eagles want him. We do know that Cox wants to stay with the Eagles. I tend to think something will get worked out eventually.

How is that for a trip down memory lane?

Old time friends and readers might recall Jamar Enzor’s name. I obsessed on that kid, just sure that he was going to be the next Seth Joyner. I liked his teammate Trent Cole quite a bit, but I loved Enzor. The only thing standing between him and a Pro Bowl filled career was…reality. Ugh. Can’t stand reality. If it is true that there are infinite universes, I want to go live in the one where Megan Fox and I can attend Enzor’s enshrinement at Canton.

Okay, enough reminiscing.

The point of tracking player interest is to know the specific players the Eagles are interested in, but also the positions, the types of players and the value of the positions.

Let’s talk about what some of this means.

Clearly the Eagles are looking for a QB. They are checking out the big dogs and doing so thoroughly. You might wonder why the team would go work out Wentz and Goff and then have them come to Philly. Having the players at the NovaCare gets them out of their comfort zone and can help the team to judge them. They can also do any medical checks they want. There are no workouts when players come to Philly, only interviews and film reviews/whiteboard sessions.

The Eagles are going to draft a QB. That’s why they are looking at a lot of them. If they miss on the top group, they have mid and late round targets of interest.

The Eagles need RB help, but they are being choosier at that position. They don’t need a body. They need someone with starter potential. That should rule out a lot of role player types. One thing all the runners have in common is physicality. Even the Richmond kid. I’ve watched him run over defenders.

WR is pretty obvious. The Eagles want speed. They do seem to be focusing on mid to late round targets.

It is interesting to see the team looking at TEs. I don’t know how much interest they have in adding one, but it maybe a case where if a player has a high enough grade and is on the board, he’s too good to pass up.

No O-linemen have come to Philly. I’m not sure what to make of that. I guess the research done in scouting visits, all star games, the Combine and private workouts has told the team all they need to know.

On to defense. The Eagles are interested in mid to late round DEs. The team has young guys in Vinny Curry and Brandon Graham. It doesn’t make sense that they would feel the need to add another young DE with a high pick. If someone falls and they like him, maybe. Right now they seem more interested in guys in rounds 5 through 7.

DT is a bit of a different story. The Eagles are looking at guys who could be 3rd round targets, as well as other prospects who might go later. All of them have the ability to penetrate and make plays.

At LB, the team is looking for someone to backup Jordan Hicks in the middle. They are checking out some physical players. The one exception is Jones, the speedy kid from LSU. I’m sure Jim Schwartz is fascinated by his potential.

My guess is that the Eagles are looking at a lot more Safeties and we’re just not hearing about it. They need depth and a player to develop for the future.

The Eagles have lots of bodies at CB so they seem to be checking out guys with something unique about them. Robinson is a long, athletic corner who will slide a bit, but could be a steal if he can put it all together. Jones has great ball skills. Worley is just a local kid so I think that’s the only reason he’s coming in.

One thing to keep in mind. Howie Roseman worked under Tom Heckert, who admitted that the Eagles would bring in a couple of players they had no interest in. They wanted to keep other teams confused. I would bet that there are a couple of players the Eagles don’t like at all who will be coming to Philly. And the Eagles will make sure to leak their names to the press. Gotta have that info out there for it to work.

Understanding the Odds

Posted: April 10th, 2016 | Author: | Filed under: Philadelphia Eagles | 257 Comments »

Will the Eagles get a QB with pick 8? Will they trade up to get one, even to the top pick? Will they wait and target a QB in the middle rounds? Is there some late round prospect they like a lot?

There is a lot of confusion when we talk about QBs.

For some reason, many people seem to think there isn’t that much difference in the guys in the Top 10 picks and those that will go later in the draft. I understand that we all love sleepers and underdogs, but QB is a spot where you go big.

You may think a 5-star restaurant is overrated and prefer the mom ‘n’ pop diner down the way. Chances are, I’d agree with you. When it comes to your lawyer or your doctor, you want the guy from Harvard. You want the guy with the fancy office and the huge reputation. You don’t shop around for a sleeper or underdog.

QB is the same way. The odds favor you if you go get the prospect with the great resume and the high draft ranking. I wrote about this for PE.com.

Someone commented under the piece that Jacoby Brissett reminded them of Donovan McNabb. Both are 230 pounds. Both are athletic. Both have strong arms. That’s where things stop for me. Brissett went to Florida. Things didn’t pan out so he transferred to NC State. He started there for 2 years and did a nice job for the Wolfpack.

McNabb started for 4 years for Syracuse and set school and conference records. He led SU to major bowls and had an amazing career. McNabb then went to the Senior Bowl and looked great playing for Jon Gruden. He showed the ability to handle the West Coast Offense and handle pro coaching.

QB is a position where accomplishment matters. Potential isn’t meaningless, but it isn’t the same as with other positions. Jimmy Graham played football for one season at Miami and then became one of the most dynamic TEs in the NFL almost instantly. Richard Sherman went from WR at Stanford to project at CB. He got to the NFL and is the best corner in the league. JJ Watt was a TE at Central Michigan. They wanted to move him to OT. He decided to transfer to Wisconsin, where shifted to DE. He is now the most dominant defender on the planet.

QB isn’t like that. You need years and years of training to succeed at that position.

I’m not saying that late round picks and sleepers never pan out, but the odds are stacked against them. Kurt Warner is the ultimate lottery ticket. It could be years, even decades, before something like that ever happens again.

We tend to focus on Tom Brady, the former 6th round pick who is arguably the greatest QB of all time. But go back and look at his college career. He was fantastic at Michigan. It is a bizarre miracle that he slid as far as he did. I point out all of his accomplishments in the piece. He left UM as one of the best QBs in school history. I can’t tell you how different his story is from Cardale Jones, Christian Hackenberg, Vernon Adams, Dak Prescott and some of the other guys people seem to love this year.

There is nothing wrong with choosing a favorite mid or late round QB. I’ve done it. But you can sure as heck bet that I prefer the guys at the top of the draft. At the bottom of the draft, you are a lot more likely to find Andy Hall than Tom Brady.

*****

Tired of hearing about QBs? Okay.

Watch this Carson Wentz video…but focus on Montant DE Tyrone Holmes (#91).

Holmes plays RDE and LDE.

You will see a bit of Trent Cole in his game. Holmes uses a good burst off the ball, but I also love how physical he is. There were some plays where he just dominated the OTs.

Holmes would be a good late round target for the Eagles. He’s only 6-2, 253. That’s not the size Jim Schwartz usually prefers, but something tells me he would love Holmes game tape.
