Another Defensive End For The Eagles, Marshall’s Vinny CurryBREAKING NEWS, Eagles Draft, News, NFLDraft Friday, April 27th, 2012
The Philadelphia Eagles said they were going to select the best player on their board. With the 59th pick in the NFL draft, the Birds have picked another defensive end and this time it’s Marshall’s Vinny Curry.
I told you the Birds were going to copy what the New York Giants have been doing for the last five or six years. They’re getting the best player on the board regardless of the position and they stockpiling pass rushers.
Curry is 6’3″ 266 pounds and he rushes the passer with the passion. He had 12 sacks in 2010 and 18 tackles for a loss. In 2011, Curry had 11 sacks, 22 tackles for a loss and forced 7 fumbles.
He loves to use the bull rush to overpower offensive tackles. Curry gets up under them and pushes them back. He must learn additional moves at the next level.
To say the least, the Eagles are deep at the defensive end position. “I’m from Neptune, New Jersey, and I’ve always been an Eagles fan ever since I started watching football, Curry said in an interview.”
This makes you wonder how the Birds feel about Brandon Graham. If you draft a guy in the second round, you expect him to be productive. The Eagles didn’t pick Curry because they expect to sit the bench.
“Coach Washburn had faith in me and I can promise you that I won’t let him down”, Curry said in a phone interview just minutes ago.
