Day 3 – The Scout’s Day

Posted: May 10th, 2014 | Author: | Filed under: Philadelphia Eagles | 77 Comments »

It isn’t all that hard to identify who the top players in a draft class. Those guys stood out during the season, at the Senior Bowl, at the Combine and/or at their Pro Day. They are really good players. Day 3 of the draft is a different story. You now have players who were one-year wonders or who are injured or who underachieved or lack ideal size or who didn’t work out well. And so on. The water is no longer clear. It is now murky and the teams who did the best job of scouting are the ones who will manage to find good players.

Let’s look at who the best available players are. Here are the guys from my Top 100 that are left.
58. Bashaud Breeland – CB – Clemson
62. Martavis Bryant – WR – Clemson
65. Daquan Jones – DL – Penn State
68. Robert Herron – WR – Wyoming
70. Zach Mettenberger – QB – LSU
71. Telvin Smith – Florida State
73. Keith McGill – CB – Utah
74. Arthur Lynch – TE – Georgia
75. Dakota Dozier – OL – Furman
76. Dion Bailey – SS – USC
77. Pierre Desir – CB – Lindenwood
80. Jordan Tripp – LB – Montana
81. Tom Savage – QB – Pitt
84. Chris Smith – DE/LB – Arkansas
85. Caraun Reid – DT – Princeton
86. Christian Jones – LB – Florida State
90. Jaylen Watkins – CB – Florida
93. Bruce Ellington – WR – South Carolina
94. Brock Vereen – FS – Minnesota
96. James Gayle – DE – Virginia Tech
99. Jackson Jeffcoat – DE – Texas
100. Laurent Duvernay-Tardif – OL – McGill

For comparison’s sake, here is Josh Norris’s Top 32 players left

1.  Telvin Smith – LB – Florida State
2. Bashaud Breeland – CB – Clemson
3. Kevin Pierre-Louis – LB – Boston College
4. Devonta Freeman – RB – Florida State
5. Bruce Ellington – WR – South Carolina
6. Caraun Reid – DT – Princeton
7. Terrance Mitchell – CB – Oregon
8. Aaron Lynch – DE/LB – USF
9. TE Colt Lyerla, Oregon
10. RB Isaiah Crowell, Alabama State
11. WR Martavis Bryant, Clemson
12. QB David Fales, San Jose State
13. QB Zach Mettenberger, LSU
14. CB Pierre Desir, Lindenwood
15. DT Justin Ellis, Louisiana Tech
16. G Dakota Dozier, Furman
17. T Charles Leno Jr., Boise State
18. DT Daquan Jones, Penn State
19. DT Zach Kerr, Delaware
20. G Jon Halapio, Florida
21. Edge player Carl Bradford, Arizona State
22. CB EJ Gaines, Missouri
23. CB Keith McGill, Utah
24. WR Jeremy Gallon, Michigan
25. WR Kevin Norwood, Alabama
26. QB Logan Thomas, Virginia Tech
27. QB Brett Smith, Wyoming
28. QB Aaron Murray, Georgia
29. TE Arthur Lynch, Georgia
30. TE Joe Don Duncan, Dixie State
31. DL Taylor Hart, Oregon
32. G David Yankey, Stanford

Those are generic lists for all 32 teams. There are 32 different lists. There is probably some consensus about the top player, but there could still be 10 to 15 different guys listed atop the various boards.

The Eagles hold the top pick. Howie Roseman said on WIP this morning that the Eagles have a player targeted, but that the ideal situation would be to move back, add more picks and still get that player. The Eagles have to figure out just how badly they want this player. They also have to guess a bit about whether the other teams would take him. Is the risk of moving back worth the reward of extra picks?

I can’t answer that without knowing their board. The NFL trade chart will tell you this pick isn’t all that valuable, but reality can differ. If there is a player that a team really wants, they will pay the price to get him. Teams have had all night to decide who they want and how badly they want that player.

Someone could covet QB Tom Savage or Zach Mettenberger. Or maybe Aaron Murray, Brett Smith or David Fales. There are some really good CBs still there that a team could covet. You get the point. All it takes is one of those teams to make a strong offer. For the Eagles to drop back 15 spots, a team overpaying would give up 5th and 6th round picks. If the Eagles just move back a couple of spots, they might have to settle for just a 6th round pick. It all depends on how many calls they are getting.

Let’s take a look at some things.


WR – Riley Cooper… JORDAN MATTHEWS … Brad Smith … Jeff Maehl
WR – Jeremy Maclin … JOSH HUFF …. Arrelious Benn … Damaris Johnson
TE – Brent Celek … Zack Ertz
H-back – James Casey …. Emil Igwenagu
RB – LeSean McCoy …. Chris Polk … Darren Sproles
QB – Nick Foles ………. Mark Sanchez … Matt Barkley
LT – Jason Peters ……. Allen Barbre … Andrew Gardner
LG – Evan Mathis…… Matt Tobin
OC – Jason Kelce……. Julian Vandervelde … David Molk
RG – Todd Herremans ……
RT – Lane Johnson.…. Dennis Kelly … Michael Bamiro

DE – Fletcher Cox ….. Vinny Curry
NT – Bennie Logan …. Damion Square
DE – Cedric Thornton  … Joe Kruger
ROLB – Trent Cole … MARCUS SMITH … Brandon Graham
WB – Mychal Kendricks ….. Najee Goode … Emmanuel Acho
MB – DeMeco Ryans …. Jason Phillips ….. Jake Knott
LOLB –  Connor Barwin …… Travis Long … Casey Matthews
SS – Nate Allen … Earl Wolff … Chris Maragos
FS – Malcolm Jenkins … Keelan Johnson
CB – Cary Williams  ……. Nolan Carroll … Curtis Marsh
CB – Bradley Fletcher ….. JAYLEN WATKINS … Roc Carmichael …
NB – Brandon Boykin

P – Donnie Jones
K – Alex Henery
LS – Jon Dorenbos

Clearly, there is still work to be done.

The Eagles could use help at DL, ILB, CB, OG, S and PK. They might want a RB or TE.

CB Justin Gilbert – Oklahoma State … Hate his feet. Don’t want him in the 1st round.

* * * * *

Who are some prospects for the Eagles?

QB:  Aaron Murray, David Fales, Brett Smith, Gale Gilbert, Keith Wenning, Bryn Renner

RB: Devonta Freeman, Andre Williams, Lache Seastrunk, Marion Grice, Storm Johnson, De’Anthony Thomas, James White, Tyler Gaffney, Rajon Neal

TE: Arthur Lynch, Blake Annen, Colt Lyerla, Marcel Jensen, Jake Murphy, Alex Bayer, Xavier Grimble, Joe Don Duncan

WR: Martavis Bryant, Robert Herron, Bruce Ellington, Kevin Norwood, Kain Colter, Jared Abrederis, Devon Street, Shaq Evans, Jeff Janis, Brandon Coleman, Michael Campanaro, Jalen Saunders

OL: Dakota Dozier, Charles Leno, Laurent Duvernay-Tardiff, Matt Patchan, Zach Fulton, Trey Hopkins, Kevin Pamphile, James Hurst, Donald Hawkins, Garrett Scott, James Stone

DL: Daquan Jones, Brent Urban, Taylor Hart, Shamar Stephen, Justin Ellis, Daniel McCullers, Deandre Coleman, George Uko, Zack Kerr, Eathyn Manumaleuna

OLB: James Gayle, Chris Smith, Trevor Reilly, Devon Kennard, Ronald Powell, Adrian Hubbard, Aaron Lynch, Michael Sam, Howard Jones, Larry Webster

ILB: Christian Jones, Telvin Smith, Jordan Tripp, Jordan Zumwalt, Brock Coyle, Shayne Skov, Lamin Barrow, Avery Williamson

S: Dion Bailey, Brock Vereen, Craig Loston, Ed Reynolds, Isaiah Lewis, Ahmad Dixon, Isaiah Newsome, Daniel Sorensen, Avery Patterson, Vinnie Sunseri

CB: Bashaud Breeland, Keith McGill, Terrance Mitchell, Aaron Colvin, Pierre Desir, Jaylen Watkins, Dontae Johnson, Victor Hampton, Marcus Roberson, Antone Exum, Walt Aiken, EJ Gaines, Nevin Lawson

The thinnest position is ILB. I hope that is the spot the Eagles target first, but they can’t do that if they don’t have high grades on the remaining players. Christian Jones testing positive at the Combine could have affected his grade. Jordan Zumwalt might not be as fast as they prefer. I have no idea what they will think of Tripp. I love his speed and energy, but we don’t know if he is the kind of player Bill Davis is looking for.

There are good choices at CB so I’ll be disappointed if the Eagles don’t land one of them.

My bet is that the Eagles do trade back. I just hope they don’t go too far.

I could live with a scenario like this (staying put):

4th – CB Bashaud Breeland – Clemson

5th – DL Shamar Stephen – UConn
5th – OL Matt Patchan – Boston College

7th – DB Antone Exum – Virginia Tech (could play CB or S)

I’m really hoping we make a trade. I want another 5th round pick.

    Were drafting Dontae today.

  2. 2 GEAGLE said at 12:06 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    Or Exum…expecting one of the two

  3. 3 Joe Minx said at 11:31 AM on May 10th, 2014:

    I’m upset they haven’t traded Graham. Guess nobody wants him.

  4. 4 Iskar36 said at 11:47 AM on May 10th, 2014:

    The thought is that he wouldn’t return more than a 5th, so I’m not entirely surprised we haven’t traded him yet. I would expect that trade to happen in the 5th.

  5. 5 Miami_Adam said at 11:32 AM on May 10th, 2014:

    Tommy, you just can’t figure out where to put Sproles?

  6. 6 Poppi said at 11:32 AM on May 10th, 2014:

    awesome breakdown Tommy – sending another donation today

  7. 7 JettMartinez said at 11:35 AM on May 10th, 2014:

    1. I’ve never heard of Bashaud Breeland before 30 seconds ago. Now I’m going to yell at my TV trying to convince the Eagles to take him.
    2. I’d completely forgotten about the existence of Emil Igwenagu until reading the depth chart.
    3. If nothing else bringing Aaron Murray to Philadelphia as a late round developmental project would make Kacie McDonnell happy, and I’m pretty sure that can’t be a bad thing.

  8. 8 Daniel Spector said at 11:45 AM on May 10th, 2014:

    LOL at number 1!

  9. 9 OregonDucker said at 11:44 AM on May 10th, 2014:

    CBs – Breeland or Desir please!

  10. 10 barneygoogle said at 11:45 AM on May 10th, 2014:

    Would they dare take TE Colt Lyerla in round 7? Talk about risk/reward!
    CB Aaron Colvin with the knee injury, is also a 1st round talent, could go soon.

  11. 11 Miami_Adam said at 11:46 AM on May 10th, 2014:

    I hope they do. And you know Chip would love a 3 TE set with Celek, Ertz, and Lyerla

  12. 12 Arby1 said at 11:45 AM on May 10th, 2014:

    So disappointed to see Jordan Matthews flashing gang signs on the way from the green room to the podium last night!

  13. 13 Alex Karklins said at 11:46 AM on May 10th, 2014:

    Crazy thought: by drafting 2 WR, will the Eagles entertain trade offers for Jeremy Maclin? I can imagine Cleveland and Carolina having interest. Cleveland especially, due to Josh Gordon’s possible suspension.

  14. 14 theycallmerob said at 11:48 AM on May 10th, 2014:

    Crazy thought indeed

  15. 15 Cafone said at 12:32 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    Trade a guy on a one year deal who was just a free agent a few weeks ago? How exactly would that work?

  16. 16 Alex Karklins said at 12:37 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    Is it technically impossible for that to happen? Serious question.

  17. 17 Arby1 said at 11:46 AM on May 10th, 2014:

    Apparently he’s been known to hang out with a notorious Southern gang known as the Hushpuppies. I thought we were past all that!

  18. 18 OregonDucker said at 11:55 AM on May 10th, 2014:

    Tommy – I didn’t see Sproles on the Depth Chart.

  19. 19 mksp said at 11:59 AM on May 10th, 2014:

    Desir or Breeland and I’d feel a lot better about the Huff pick, which I’m coming around on anyway.

    Love that every pick under Kelly seems to be really good kids that are easy to root for. I know it doesn’t matter to some of you guys, but I appreciate it.

    My dream scenario:

    4th: Desir
    5th: Colvin
    5th: Ronald Powell
    7th: Dion Bailey

    More picks would be nice

  20. 20 GEAGLE said at 12:07 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    Doubt Dion last til 7

  21. 21 Ark87 said at 12:01 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    On the clock I guess

  22. 22 GEAGLE said at 12:05 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    Think we are trading back

  23. 23 GEAGLE said at 12:06 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    Picks in

  24. 24 Ark87 said at 12:07 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    Probably going to lean on your opinions as these rounds go on, haven’t researched much now that we are getting this deep haha

  25. 25 GEAGLE said at 12:08 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    So much depth, that my opinions probabky don’t mean much. There is an absurd amount of talent left
    Did the late round check list below

  26. 26 GEAGLE said at 12:04 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    I’m assuming we add someone from each list:

    1) ILB who can cover in subpackages: Jones,Telvin! the kid from BC Minter knows. Lokombo

    2) Brent Urban, Josh Mauro! Taylor hart as thorntons backup

    3) Shemar or Deandre Coleman, possibly Baeu Allen late or Undrafted as Logan’s backup

    Don’t sleep on Eagles and RB devonte Freeman, or weapons like Lyerla,Jeff Janis, Shaq Evans..

    Dontae Johnson or Antone Exum, Jalen Watkins, Desir,AiKENS,Terrence Mitchell

  27. 27 GEAGLE said at 12:09 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    Well Watkins out of the last group…so far so good with the late round check list lol

  28. 28 Baloophi said at 12:05 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    Would we have heard of a trade by now?

  29. 29 GEAGLE said at 12:05 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    Not neccessarily

  30. 30 Baloophi said at 12:05 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    I’m rusty with the later rounds and shorter clock and draft management

  31. 31 GEAGLE said at 12:06 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    Picks in..nevermind

  32. 32 GEAGLE said at 12:07 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    Pray the curse of the other brother doesn’t bite us in the ass again

  33. 33 Insomniac said at 12:08 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    Jaylen Watkins.

  34. 34 Arby1 said at 12:08 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    good pick

  35. 35 FrenchEagles said at 12:08 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    Watkins, CB, it is

  36. 36 Mitchell said at 12:08 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    Ok. Looks good to me.

  37. 37 Ark87 said at 12:08 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    Wonder how we use him.

  38. 38 Insomniac said at 12:08 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    Everything is about versatility so far.

  39. 39 mksp said at 12:09 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    Cool, down with Watkins.

  40. 40 Baloophi said at 12:09 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    Ye olde cornerback run…

  41. 41 OregonDucker said at 12:10 PM on May 10th, 2014:


  42. 42 HipDaDip said at 12:10 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    will he play S for us? can he hit?

  43. 43 Insomniac said at 12:12 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    Next Dawkins? Nope. He’s more like Nate Allen.

  44. 44 HipDaDip said at 12:13 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    depends how you feel about nate allen i guess. do you think he could be a functional safety?

  45. 45 Insomniac said at 12:14 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    Yes. He’s more of a cover guy than a slugger. He’s going to probably play CB/S for us though.

  46. 46 HipDaDip said at 12:14 PM on May 10th, 2014:


  47. 47 anon said at 12:19 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    Draft for Eagles will be predictible in year 3, at least they are pretty consistent in what they want.

  48. 48 Ark87 said at 12:14 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    Seems more like Malcolm Jenkins to me. Jenkins being a Safety who can cover the slot, Watkins being a CB who can play center field.

  49. 49 FrenchEagles said at 12:16 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    Exactly. We now have two hybrids that seem to be able to play everywhere in the secondary.

  50. 50 mksp said at 12:10 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    There goes Breeland. NYJ probably takes Desir.

  51. 51 Insomniac said at 12:11 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    Falcons might take him

  52. 52 GEAGLE said at 12:14 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    Watkins was a quality selection….tho I would have prefered trading back, and the fact that Sammy Watkins is his brother scares me 🙂 but definitely a nice addition to our secondary

  53. 53 Baloophi said at 12:15 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    Half brother… so it should half scare you.

  54. 54 ICDogg said at 12:20 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    If it was Danny Watkins’ half brother, it would make me shit.

  55. 55 OregonDucker said at 12:15 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    GEagle, now we need a good ILB or DT don’t you think?

  56. 56 mksp said at 12:24 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    There’s depth at both positions still, probably some UDFAs as well.

  57. 57 GEAGLE said at 12:24 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    Be shocked if we don’t add either Taylor hart! Josh Mauro or Brent urban at DE…and I’d be pretty surprised if we didn’t find a backup for Bennie Logan in rounds 6 or 7(Deandre Coleman, Shemar Stephens) ….and we absolutely need a subpackage alternative to Demeco Ryan: Christian Jones,Telvin Smith, the kid from BC, Lokombo…

  58. 58 Ark87 said at 12:16 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    Can you imagine the conversations at that dinner table???

  59. 59 GEAGLE said at 12:15 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    Thought Chip would have really liked RB Devonta Freeman…

    Wonder if Chip drafts RB Storm Johnson late,.,I’m happy all of chips potential early RB targets are off the board. Was worries we would spend a pick on RB

  60. 60 OregonDucker said at 12:16 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    He needs OL backups with potential on offense. But I’d like to see more D adds.

  61. 61 GEAGLE said at 12:22 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    Not neccessarily,,..we assume we need OL, but we really have no clue. For all we know. Tobin,Bamiro and Kelly could have developed into players that look like starters. We as fans don’t know what we have on Our bench so we can’t know what we need… But, like you, I would think we need to add ATleast 1 OL…hoping for Kevin Pamphile, converted basketball player. Round 5-6

  62. 62 Ark87 said at 12:25 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    I liked what I saw from Dennis Kelly in his rookie year. Lot of promise, but I don’t know how Stoutland likes him.

  63. 63 mksp said at 12:16 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    Jesus, can we trade Bryce Brown and Brandon Graham already? I want more picks!

  64. 64 Bob Brewer said at 12:50 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    One is now gone.

  65. 65 Poppi said at 12:17 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    Billy Davis pick – according to Tommy, he went to the Florida pro day plus a Philly visit. They must like his size.

  66. 66 Dominik said at 12:20 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    What is to like about 5-11? No critique, just don’t think his size is a pro. His speed seems nice.

  67. 67 Poppi said at 12:31 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    thought he is 6’0- better than 5-9 or 5-10

  68. 68 Baloophi said at 12:18 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    I always thought Jalen Saunders was being mocked much later than he should…

  69. 69 Mitchell said at 12:19 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    The only gripe I have with this pick is he wasn’t much of a playmaker in college. We are going to need a guy with some playmaking ability in the secondary sometime right? Well, besides Boy King.

  70. 70 anon said at 12:20 PM on May 10th, 2014:

    He can make plays through disguise. Is he the safety, is he the CB, is he blitzing? If they can get him up to 200lbs, i’m ok.

    Chip saying he’s excited to get him in here, and really begin to evaluate how we want to use him on this defense. Not decided what position we want to use him at.

    Figured we would add a DB like him, Antone Exum, Dontae Johnson versatile enough to wear multiple hats in our secondaryl and figure out where to play them later…Good pick!! And our Secondary is starting to have more depth than some people realize

    49ers getting Bruce Ellington isn’t even fair.

    They are blowing the 49ers draft hard.

    Bryce Brown traded to bills for 2 future picks!! Well I’m guessing we add a rb at some point
