The Eagles are suddenly showing a lot of interest in Safeties. They don’t “need” one for 2017, but this is a very deep group and that’s a position where there aren’t always great options. You can definitely argue that the Eagles should take one. Last year the defense was hurt when Malcolm Jenkins moved from SS to the slot. The Eagles would like better depth at both spots this season.

Adams is seen as a Top 10 pick. The Eagles must feel there is a chance he could slide.

According to Eric Edholm, the Eagles are looking at Obi Melifonwu as a S and CB.


I was very happy to see the Eagles checking out Dan Feeney. He is my favorite OL prospect in this draft. Not the best, but my favorite. Could play G or C. Played some RT in college, but will be on the inside in the NFL. Outstanding prospect. If the Eagles move an OL in a deal, I’d love to see them target him in the 2nd round.


Lamp also got attention from Jeff Stoutland. That’s interesting because Lamp is projected to be a 1st round pick. I don’t think the Eagles would take him at 14. Maybe interested if they move back in a trade or if they move up in the 2nd round and he slides just a little.

Per Tony Pauline, OL coaches had him doing some snapping in the workout. He played LT in college, but most see him as an OG in the NFL. Apparently some teams are interested in him as a C. I don’t know where the Eagles like him.

Make sure you check out Tony’s site on a regular basis. Lots of good draft news and rumors. Plus he’s a huge Led Zeppelin fan. We spend half our time at the Senior Bowl talking prospects and the other half talking about Jimmy Page and Robert Plant.


There are some reports about the Eagles having a workout with Joe Mixon. We don’t have a confirmation of this year.


I think Tarell Basham would be a good fit for the Eagles D. He has good size at 6-4, 269. He has long arms. Basham generates good power off the edge. He doesn’t bend and turn as well as you’d like, but that is more critical for DEs who have tighter splits to the OTs. Lining up out wide gives DEs a natural angle and helps the guys who don’t bend as well. Could go as early as the 2nd round.


I’m surprised we haven’t heard more about the Eagles and DTs. Maybe they don’t think workouts/visits are as important for them because of the rugged, physical nature of the position. Or maybe we just haven’t heard about all the meetings. We’ll see.


Key reminder to all of this. A visit/meeting/workout can go poorly. The Eagles had interest that caused them to look into these players, but we don’t know how things actually went.

    Slid over from previous thread

    Your score is: 12991 (GRADE: A-)

    Your Picks:
    Round 1 Pick 14: Corey Davis, WR, Western Michigan (B+)
    Round 2 Pick 11: Takkarist McKinley, OLB/DE, UCLA (A)
    Round 3 Pick 10: Cordrea Tankersley, CB, Clemson (A+)
    Round 4 Pick 12: Samaje Perine, RB, Oklahoma (A)
    Round 4 Pick 32 (COMP): Julie’n Davenport, OT, Bucknell (A)
    Round 5 Pick 11: Corn Elder, CB, Miami (Fla.) (B+)
    Round 6 Pick 10: Matthew Dayes, RB, NC State (A-)
    Round 7 Pick 12: Stevie Tu’ikolovatu, DT, Southern California (A)

    What I like best about this draft is that, except for Perine, I don’t think a single guy I took will actually be available at that spot during the draft……..but I can’t really say no to a guy when he’s sitting there.

  2. 2 Sb2bowl said at 2:04 PM on April 2nd, 2017:

    Going to be fun (and infuriating) to watch how the draft plays out. I’m glad it’s April, almost there!

  3. 3 Media Mike said at 9:03 PM on April 1st, 2017:

    This is a great list of names. I’m curious how many visits are legit targets vs. hope to see falls. vs. smokescreens.

  4. 4 Will Ft. Daft Punk said at 9:07 PM on April 1st, 2017:

    I think they have a legit shot at most guys on the list. Adams is the player least likely to make to 14 IMHO.

    Im really liking TJ Watt and Jordan Willis as 2nd round picks

  5. 5 Media Mike said at 9:10 PM on April 1st, 2017:

    I’m scared that Watt and Willis are going to be gone before we pick becasue FA pass rush has gotten totally out of hand.

    The numbskull Giants are paying $32.5 million in combined AAV to Pierre Paul and Vernon for 15.5 sacks of “production.” That’s over $2 mil / sack.

  6. 6 Will Ft. Daft Punk said at 9:31 PM on April 1st, 2017:

    They are really in win now mode with Eli

  7. 7 Media Mike said at 9:33 PM on April 1st, 2017:

    They might want better players in order to be in that mode. They massively overachieved last year and will fall back big time next year.

  8. 8 Will Ft. Daft Punk said at 9:36 PM on April 1st, 2017:

    I think the defensive shows up this year and marshal is a big + over Cruz. I think they are a playoff team this year.

  9. 9 Media Mike said at 9:37 PM on April 1st, 2017:

    Negative. Their D overachieved last year, their o-line still sucks, and Marshall is shot.

  10. 10 Will Ft. Daft Punk said at 9:40 PM on April 1st, 2017:

    Are you saying they have no shot at winning the division or a wildcard spot?

    Their OL has been bad for years. And i disagree their D over achieved. I think the secondary is legit.

  11. 11 Media Mike said at 9:43 PM on April 1st, 2017:

    I’m saying they’re crap, thier fans are crap, and they needed pure luck to not be 7-9 because their wins over NO, Baltimore, Cincy, and us were crap. They’ll fall back this year to a non-playoff team.

  12. 12 Crus57 said at 8:32 AM on April 2nd, 2017:

    If there’s one thing we’ve learned, it’s that it doesn’t matter how crap the Giants play as long as they are juuust good enough to get into the playoffs, then all bets are off.

  13. 13 Gian GEAGLE said at 2:40 PM on April 2nd, 2017:

    Did they even add any OL yet besides Fluker, who I view as just a high upside “flier” type like our Chance Warmack signing? I know they extended their crappy RG.
    I feel like the Giants have invested a ton in almost everything except their OL which should be #1’on their list

  14. 14 Gian GEAGLE said at 2:36 PM on April 2nd, 2017:

    The curse of the “other brother” is always a concern. JJ watts brother just sounds like setting eagle fans up for serious dissapointment. Is he legit?

  15. 15 Robert D Martin said at 9:23 PM on April 1st, 2017:

    What do you think of Ethan Cooper. Outside of Ben McAdoo and Shady saying we’re a good party school, we haven’t had much love lately

  16. 16 Media Mike said at 9:27 PM on April 1st, 2017:

    Guard prospect, right?

  17. 17 Media Mike said at 9:30 PM on April 1st, 2017:


    Interesting that IUP listed him at 6-3, but he’s actually 6-2; which matches how IUP typically comes up a bit short in the PSAC standings.

  18. 18 Robert D Martin said at 9:47 PM on April 1st, 2017:

    Haha, how punny. I never went to the games, so first time I’m hearing about him. It seems he played LT, but is projected as a guard.

  19. 19 Media Mike said at 9:48 PM on April 1st, 2017:

    The write-up on him is promising, so I hope he gets a chance.

  20. 20 Robert D Martin said at 10:01 PM on April 1st, 2017:

    Samsies, that’d be pretty awesome

  21. 21 D3FB said at 9:59 AM on April 2nd, 2017:

    Moved well at the combine and has a good build. Nobody has public tape though.

  22. 22 Wrongthink said at 9:54 PM on April 1st, 2017:

    If they draft Mixon we’ll forever be a joke. Even a super bowl win would be tainted.

  23. 23 Will Ft. Daft Punk said at 10:28 PM on April 1st, 2017:

    I doubt it. I’m not saying we should or shouldn’t draft him but I think it blows over for whatever drafts him. Even if he messes up again. The media will run a bunch of I told you so stories for a few weeks but I dont think it will be anything lasting.

    And if he runs for 1100-1300 yards with 8-10 TDs people will forget/stop caring even faster.

  24. 24 Wrongthink said at 1:42 AM on April 2nd, 2017:

    Which is an absolute embaressment. This guy should be mopping floors not making millions.

  25. 25 Ryan Rambo said at 7:55 AM on April 2nd, 2017:

    SMH. Mopping floors because you say so huh? One thing to want him on the team you root for, but when did you get a say in his future to that extent? Just asking.

  26. 26 Will Ft. Daft Punk said at 10:00 AM on April 2nd, 2017:

    It doesn’t work like that.

    It usually takes a felony conviction to regulate somebody to lifetime janitor.

  27. 27 Stephen E. said at 3:08 PM on April 2nd, 2017:

    Can’t wait until someone hits Wrongthink and he dares to hit them back. It’s mopping floors for you!

  28. 28 Sb2bowl said at 8:59 PM on April 2nd, 2017:

    Felonies proclude most from being janitors because of the sensitivity and access to materials when others aren’t around.

    Sadly, if you say a person is a felon, they often get a second chance though that is exactly what our legal system is supposed to allow.

  29. 29 Howie Littlefinger said at 7:16 AM on April 2nd, 2017:

    So the Ravens (Rice) Superbowl is tainted? Or the Pats Superbowls?

    I will take any SB we can get even if the trot out all convicts. We need a GD ring

  30. 30 Dave said at 7:22 AM on April 2nd, 2017:

    The Pats Superbowls are tainted by getting caught cheating not once, but twice.

  31. 31 Howie Littlefinger said at 7:27 AM on April 2nd, 2017:

    Yea but what did that change? They have em and we don’t. I hate them more than the cowboys and still have to credit those cheaters

    A win is win in the history books. And when ur the best in the world at something u get cut a lot of slack.

    someone will give that scumbag a shot and if it gets us a SB I hope its us… Its def not worse than Killing an animal to me anyways

  32. 32 Wrongthink said at 12:26 PM on April 2nd, 2017:

    There are more important things than a super bowl. If you won’t be thinking of that girl getting her face smashed everytime you see the guy I pity you.

  33. 33 Gian GEAGLE said at 12:38 PM on April 2nd, 2017:

    Out of curiosity how would you feel if I show you some really savage and heinous videos of 250lb woman, giving a 100lb man the beating of his life, that would make the Mixon or Ray rice video look tame in comparison? Men who don’t believe in hitting woman, who sat there and took some of the most VISCIOUS beatings you will ever see in your life at the hands of a woman.
    Just curious
    Plenty of more important arenas to take up the fight for social justice, im not dumb enough to pretend that the NFL will ever be the beacon of social morality. Don’t commit crimes while you are an eagle. I’ll let other people worry about the rest

  34. 34 Wrongthink said at 2:42 PM on April 2nd, 2017:

    Look man, I think feminists are as shrill and annoying as any sane person would, but don’t let that turn you into the male version of one. Traditional values are not the worship of ashes, but the tending of the fire.

  35. 35 Gian GEAGLE said at 2:45 PM on April 2nd, 2017:

    Lol im worried about football, I can do without your preaching, but thanks anyway. More important arenas for tackling social Justice than an eagle blog. Not that interested in hearing you judge people you don’t even know lol

  36. 36 Wrongthink said at 4:53 PM on April 2nd, 2017:

    If you had a daughter would you let her date him?

  37. 37 lonfident said at 10:52 PM on April 2nd, 2017:

    Just block this ass, I did.

  38. 38 Insomniac said at 2:11 PM on April 2nd, 2017:

    There are more women getting hit in the face everyday. Are you looking at women’s faces and seeing women getting hit in the face?

  39. 39 Wrongthink said at 2:36 PM on April 2nd, 2017:

    That’s just ridiculous.

  40. 40 Howie Littlefinger said at 9:55 PM on April 2nd, 2017:

    I won’t and u can pity me. This guy will get a shot from someone and I have no say if its the Eagles or not..

    And I hope for her sake that she learned violence doesnt solve anything

  41. 41 lonfident said at 10:50 PM on April 2nd, 2017:

    This is an unpopular view, but I agree. People, both men and women, have to be prepared to accept the consequences if their actions. If you decide to attack someone much bigger and stronger than than you, and you get punched in the face, so be it. This woman bears as much or more responsibility than Mixon for what happened IMO

  42. 42 Ankerstjernen said at 4:19 AM on April 3rd, 2017:

    …can’t believe the amount of people on this otherwise pretty normal comment section ready to make the argument, that its perfectly fine and justified for a 230 pound male athlete to crush a girls face with his fists because ‘she annoyed him’. I encourage you guys to take a step back and think this position through. Its not about football and how much you want to win. We all want to win. That doesnt change rational thought.

  43. 43 lonfident said at 1:21 PM on April 3rd, 2017:

    No one said it’s fine, we said she has some responsibility for it. It wasn’t just an annoyance, she attacked him, is that fine with you? I guess so.

  44. 44 Wrongthink said at 11:43 PM on April 2nd, 2017:


  45. 45 Howie Littlefinger said at 1:51 AM on April 3rd, 2017:

    uh huh lol

  46. 46 Gian GEAGLE said at 12:32 PM on April 2nd, 2017:

    If Mixon goes on to stay out of trouble and be a good teammate that coaches and playërs can count on during his entire NFL career then I hope he ends up with the Eagles. if he is going to play in the NFL anyway then as long as he stays out of trouble while he is an Eagle thats fine with me. What he does after his NFL career or before his career DOESNT really concern me. Now if the Eagles were the deciding factor on whether he gets to play in the NFL or not, I’d probably feel different. Most of the franchises that have the most Superbowls had their shares of bad apples. Im done holding the Eagles to hiigher standards than the rest of the league, while one of the best players on the Patriots were literally committing murder while playing in the NFL.
    Mixon is going to get a second chance whether I like it or not, so his history should mean nothing more than a predictor of future behavior, and none of us on this board have any fucking idea how sorry he really is, or ISNT. That’s why NFL teams have to spend time with him and decide if Mixon the person is someone they are comfortable taking a chance on.
    Hopefully this will be one of the young men who actually learn from their mistake, never repeat it and go on to become better men as they mature.
    Let’s be honest, Other than temporary bad press, the only reason teams really care about whether the kids they draft will stay out of trouble is because it effects their availability on sunday.
    No matter how we feel, he is getting a second chance. Hopefully he does right by the team that gives him the opportunity. Personally I’d rather give a second chance to playërs like Mixon who made mistakes while they were kids or young men, instead of giving a second chance to 27 year old NFL Millionaire who commits crimes. Since he is getting a second chance, the past really doesn’t matter. What Comes Next is the question teams considering him have to ask. the talent is obvious, teams are going to have to decide if they are comfortable betting on the young man and you have to actually get to know the kid for that to happen

  47. 47 Howie Littlefinger said at 9:53 PM on April 2nd, 2017:

    Wow I pretty much agree whole heartedly

  48. 48 Bert's Bells said at 8:58 AM on April 2nd, 2017:

    Forever jokes!

  49. 49 Wrongthink said at 12:23 PM on April 2nd, 2017:

    Rice did what he did after they won a Super Bowl. Your lack of basic decency is disturbing.

  50. 50 Stephen E. said at 3:04 PM on April 2nd, 2017:

    Ray Lewis’ super bowl rings say otherwise.

  51. 51 Wrongthink said at 4:57 PM on April 2nd, 2017:

    No, it just says their a crappy organization not worth rooting for.

  52. 52 Wrongthink said at 9:58 PM on April 1st, 2017:

    Has there been even one philly journalist to say they shouldn’t take him? What a disgrace.

  53. 53 Ray888 said at 11:14 PM on April 1st, 2017:

    Based on what? Your personal view that no one ever deserves a second chance? No one ever mends their ways? One mistake & your out?

  54. 54 CrackSammich said at 11:41 PM on April 1st, 2017:

    Cheering on a player can and will be interpreted as tacit approval of that player. Every person has to come to their own decision whether or not they’re okay with that player as a person and whether they want to do the mental gymnastics to cheer on a known POS. I’d rather not have to make that choice if I don’t have to, personally.

  55. 55 Wrongthink said at 2:08 AM on April 2nd, 2017:

    Not to mention there’s been a very vocal and significant part of the fanbase that’s been against this from the start. They draft him and try to sell it as a “second chance” its a huge slap in the face to all of them. Not to mention any woman that’s a fan.

    How has there not been one philly scribe to take a stand against drafting this guy? What a bunch of sellouts.

  56. 56 Ray888 said at 12:59 PM on April 2nd, 2017:

    I would have found this view more convincing some 20 years ago. But then there were the later years of AR tenure here where he started to be more compassionate about giving players second chances (after his family circumstances). And then listening to Tony Dungy talk about second chances for young men who made bad decisions and weren’t exposed to good role models. There are other valid ways to view this.

  57. 57 Insomniac said at 2:01 PM on April 2nd, 2017:

    Exactly. I’ll trust the guys in our FO since they’ll get to the bottom of it. Whether they decide to draft him or not, I’ll still root for the Eagles. Heck some teams had MURDERERS on their team but do you see other fans bring that up as much as guys like Greg Hardy or Ray Rice?

  58. 58 Ankerstjernen said at 4:42 AM on April 3rd, 2017:

    Sorry, replied to the wrong post. Edited.

  59. 59 Wrongthink said at 2:39 PM on April 2nd, 2017:

    It’s not compassionate to give a guy that shatters a woman’s face millions of dollars, it’s a sign of a moral weakness.

  60. 60 Ray888 said at 4:15 PM on April 2nd, 2017:

    Short equation from above – redemption = moral weakness. And, by the way, redemption is’t given; it’s earned.

  61. 61 Ray888 said at 12:44 PM on April 2nd, 2017:

    You are correct, it is a personal decision. But your personal decision doesn’t have to be my personal decision. Nor should a personal decision be subject to others questioning its basis. I may cheer for a player, not based upon approving of that player, but rather seeing him only as the lesser of two evils. For example when that player is competing against the Cowboys. You might call him a POS, but he’s our POS.

  62. 62 Wrongthink said at 1:51 AM on April 2nd, 2017:

    He hasn’t even been properly punished for his crimes. People deserve second chances after they’ve paid their debt to society and seen the error of their ways. Not after they lawyer up and keep silent so they don’t screw up their chances at bling. I don’t know how anyone can look their wife, mother, sister, or daughter in the eye and root for a team that pays this guy. What has happened to the “men” of the West?

  63. 63 Ray888 said at 1:12 PM on April 2nd, 2017:

    Any team selecting such a player would have done their own thorough review before even considering this. I expect the Eagles would be doublely as diligent. Questions of punishment, remorse, & changed values would be answered affirmatively by a team or such a player is not selected. PSA’s would be mandatory in the future.

  64. 64 Gian GEAGLE said at 2:33 PM on April 2nd, 2017:

    Typically Jeffrey Lurie has been very selective about who he gave second chances to since he has been our owner, and it’s typically worked out well. I don’t know that I can think of any Charechter concern we took a chance on who made us regret over the course of the Lurie Regime? Am I Missimg someone who we gave a chance to that went on to get arrested and make us look bad? I can’t think of anyone, and LurIe has been on the right end of a true redemption story in the man MIKE Vick became during his “second chance”
    Unlike scumbag owners like Jerry who have been burnt multiple times because they add any scumbag as long as he can play, I think you have to give the Jeffrey Lurie Eagles the benefit of the doubt if they give a kid like Mixon a second chance, we know that they will have done all sorts of extensive homework on the kid, so if Lurie signs off on betting on this young man to not repeat his disgusting behavior, I’ll give the Eagles the benefit of the doubt, and judge the kid on what happens next

  65. 65 Ray888 said at 4:20 PM on April 2nd, 2017:

    “Amen” would seem to be the appropriate resondse in more ways than one.

  66. 66 Ankerstjernen said at 4:46 AM on April 3rd, 2017:

    I know I made this point in another thread but feel like repeating it here so bear with me: If the only people who knows wether Mixon is a reformed person or not are the scouts who do deep background checks, then he has, BY DEFINITION, not earned a second chance, let alone a first. Second chances should be given to people who has made a conscious effort to deserve them. Mixon clearly has not, or we would all know about it by now.

    What you and others are advocating is the risk/reward perspective, which is where you justify rewarding a bad person with a huge endorsement just because he is good at football. Then you simply hope that he turns out to be a better person than his past would indicate, or that he is so good at football that you are prepared to accept his immoral behaviour. This line of thinking in based on the understanding that the better you are at football, the more immoral you get to behave with our blessing. It makes moral boundaries relative to succes in stead of fixed. And I find this kind of thinking very disturbing, to be honest. It promotes a conception of morality that we need to reject, as a culture, fanbase, society, etc. And as an Eagles fan, I want the organisation to have higher standards than that.

    Let the Cowboys be the team of doucebags and sell outs.

  67. 67 Stephen E. said at 3:12 PM on April 2nd, 2017:

    I’m sorry that you think you’re the judge and get to decide what a suitable punishment is.

  68. 68 Wrongthink said at 4:59 PM on April 2nd, 2017:

    Oh are you gonna judge me for being judgemental now? What a dope. You think Lurie would draft this guy if the girl that got her face smashed was Jewish? Think again, goy.

  69. 69 Media Mike said at 4:17 AM on April 2nd, 2017:

    It is about 4 or 5 mistakes


  70. 70 Insomniac said at 1:55 PM on April 2nd, 2017:

    Please stop linking to bad journalism.


    “Molitor’s lawyers told the detective that Mixon has a history of violence and was ejected from a high school game for punching another player and was suspended the next game.”

    Well I could only find this after 15 minutes of googling.


    According to this article the punch is near the 1:20 mark. One of the defenders initiated the contact and things got heated. Seems like an isolated incident since he hasn’t done that in college (I think).


  71. 71 Media Mike said at 4:18 AM on April 2nd, 2017:

    At least theres one writer that still has some decency. Seems real likely the word has gone out to philly media to massage the fan base and keep quiet over this. Disgusting.

    Flyers still not mathematically eliminated. At this point, we can only make the playoffs if we win all of our remaining games, Boston loses all their remaining games, and Tampa, NYI, and Carolina don’t win enough to take us over.

    This is Philly, so all of those things will happen until the last day, when we get it taken away from us while they’re waiting to go on the ice.

    Makes you wonder why that level of effort wasn’t there more often this year vs. NJ.

    On the most recent ‘move the sticks” podcast Daniel Jeremiah and bucky brooks were saying that the DT position really isn’t very deep in this draft. I do trust those guys more than a lot of these other bozos. Maybe that has something to do with it.

    The interest in safeties is probably legit. Jenkins is a good safety but he’s also going to be old/expensive. I don’t know how I would feel with Adams at 14. He’s good but I don’t think he could be special like Malik Hooker. If we want someone to sit behind Jenkins then I think Desmond King or Justin Evans would be a better value standpoint.

    I wouldn’t mind grabbing Dan Feeney or Dion Dawkins on day 2. Those guys would solidify our OL assuming that Seumalo could take over for Kelce now.

    A friendly reminder, 25 more days until the draft.

  79. 79 kajomo said at 8:47 AM on April 2nd, 2017:

    I love this safety class.

    John Johnson is similar to Jenkins. Narrow framed, but excellent in coverage. Could play in the slot as well as deep S.

    Marcus Williams is a great athlete. He can hit, cover, and has good ball skills.

    Shalom Launi plays with his hair in fire. Is kind of like a more athletic Kurt Coleman.

    Marcus Maye is another guy who I think could do everything. More of a SS. Xavier Woods too.

    Just so many good S prospects

    A more athletic Kurt Coleman is like a pro bowl safety. Budda Baker is pretty good too.

    Love Baker, but I was focusing on mid/late round guys

    The TCH Draft Scenario 1.0 (5 Rounds)
    Its a slow Saturday in my world, and I thought it would be fun to put together a draft scenario… Feel free to leave your comments / feedback

    R1 – Joss Ross – Offense gets explosive playmaker, with the ability to be a star for years ahead. Ross can do it all, stretch the field, track the deep ball, take a slant to the house. Ross has the chance to better than Brandon Cooks, and equal to DeSean at his best

    R2 – Best corner avail – Teez Tabor, Quincy Wilson, Tre White, Kevin King. One of these guys will be there

    R3 – Sidney Jones (or Fabian Moreau if Jones is gone). Eagles get future starter, maybe can see action later in the season. Ahkello Witherspoon in another guy that I like here, if he lasts this long

    R3 – TRADE – Eagles trade 4th rounder and Kelce (or Kendricks) to get back into the 3rd round to draft Kareem Hunt (or James Conner or insert other RB here)

    R4 – Michael Roberts or George Kittle. This TE class is too good to not get one. This is the perfect spot to draft Celek’s 2018 replacement

    R5 – Small school DE, who in time will turn into the next Trent Cole (5th round DE steal)

    Pros of this scenario: Eagles get 3 young playmakers to grow with Carson, and 1 potential star in John Ross. Eagles solve corner issue with 2 potential young starters of the future.

    Cons: Eagles value the DL and need depth, not adequately addressed in the early rounds with top prospects. Eagles also need depth at LB and safety, which could be addressed in late rounds or UDFA.

    Let me know your thoughts. Happy Saturday!

  84. 84 Wrongthink said at 2:32 AM on April 2nd, 2017:

    I’d switch out best available player or DE in round 3 over Sidney Jones. I wouldn’t risk a 3rd rounder on a corner with an achilles.

  85. 85 EagleOne1983 said at 8:40 AM on April 2nd, 2017:

    I keep looking at the Cornerback tape online. I really like what I see in the pair of cornerbacks from Colorado, Awuzie and Witherspoon. The pair remind me of Taylor and Vincent. I would love to get both of them in the 2nd and 3rd rounds, but I think they are both going to be 2nd Round picks, Awuzie may go late 1st round.
    And I think that one of these deep positions is going to have a major slide in this draft, 1st/2nd round talent going in rounds 3 and 4. For the Eagles sake, I hope it is the Cornerback position.

  86. 86 Gian GEAGLE said at 12:12 PM on April 2nd, 2017:

    Hate the idea of trading Jason Peters. You shouldn’t be trying to skimp from the OL charged with protecting our golden boy. It’s a long season, the more OL Talent/depth the better. Im encouraged by Vaitai’s play and potential, but im certainly not ready to go into a season with him as the day 1 starter. An extra draft pick just ISNT worth weakening our QB protection. Cut down on some false starts and Peters is still performing at a solid level and at this poïnt as long as his level of play doesnt deteriorate too much, he has a chance of retiring as an Eagle in a year or two. I wouldn’t expect to be able to get more than a 5th round pick for JP anyway. Terrible idea, I hope the Eagles don’t go thru with it

  87. 87 Sb2bowl said at 2:13 PM on April 2nd, 2017:

    They could probably pull a third for him. That’s what it would take for me

  88. 88 Gian GEAGLE said at 2:21 PM on April 2nd, 2017:

    A 3rd round pick, for an expensive, older, one or two year band aid?
    How many times has a 32 year old NFL player fetched a 3rd round pick in a trade? Off the top of my head I would assume that hasn’t happened very often?
    Elway is a tough GM to negotiate with, THATS like the last GM I would expect to give up a 3rd round pick for a band aid

  89. 89 EagleOne1983 said at 2:47 PM on April 2nd, 2017:

    How about JP and our 3rd for Denver’s 2nd and 3rd?

  90. 90 Gian GEAGLE said at 2:48 PM on April 2nd, 2017:

    From John Elway? Do you see sucker tattooed on his foreheads? Lol sigń me up for that! I’d be shocked if we could get a conditional 4th for JP unless a legit Super Bowl contender loses its LT to injury during the summer.
    Elway not paying all that just to have one or maybe two years of JP protecting Simein
    If they are going to pay all that for an old tackle, might as well give up a little more and go get Joe Thomas out of cleveland

    Look at what Whitworth (sp?) got at 35 on the free agent market. With a cap hit of under $10m (and some desparation) it could happen. Unlikely, but that’s what it would take for me for it to make sense
