Okay the Eagles have Lane Johnson in house and now it’s time to add more players, who can help rebuild this team. The second round is supposed to be the strength of his draft. It’s supposed to be very deep and not as
West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith is still on the board, but he won’t be sitting there in front of the nation this morning, waiting to get drafted. Smith could end up being the steal of the draft in the second round. The Birds could stay where they are and get a shot at him, but they may have to move up to get him.
The Eagles still may need help at the safety position and they could get it by selecting Jonathan Cyprien of Florida International. I saw him at the Senior Bowl and he stood out. Cyprien is a big hitter and playmaker, who has the speed and size to be a standout. He stands 6 foot even and he weighs 217 pounds.
SMU defensive end Margus Hunt has tremendous potential with with great measurables. He’s 6’8″ and weighs 280 pounds. His body build and arm length is much like J.J. Watt of the Texans. He can put more muscle on his frame to get up closer to 300 pounds. could play on the Birds defensive line.
I have a cousin, Jonathan Jenkins, who is a nose tackle out of Georgia and he could help the Birds on the defensive line. He’s a big fella at 6’5″ 350, who is a tremendous run stopper and he has the quickness and strength to develop into an effective pass rusher.
Jesse Williams is a talented Alabama nose tackle who could wind up being a target for the Birds.
California wide receiver Keenan Allen has the size and pass catching ability which could get the Eagles attention. Tennessee wide receiver Justin Hunter is another wideout that the Birds need to consider. USC wide receiver Robert Woods is an ideal slot receiver with great quickness and hands.
Stanford tight end Zach Ertz would upgrade the Eagles tight end situation with his speed, size and pass catching ability.
Jamar Taylor is a corner, who may be able to help the Birds immediately. Mississippi State cornerback Johnathan Banks is another cornerback, who would upgrade their talent at that position.
Who will every forget the show that Alabama running back Eddie Lacy put on in the National Championship game. He’s a one cut running back with a great size and speed combination.
Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o didn’t play very well in that game but he’s one of the better players still on the board. Te’o has a great instinct for the game, but his lack of great size and speed are the reasons, he’s still on the board. One of the best linebacker still on the board is Kansas State linebacker Arthur Brown, who is the brother of Eagles running back Bryce Brown.
Florida State DE Tank Carradine and Texas A&M defensive end Damontre Moore are two outstanding defensive end prospects.
We would love to get your suggestions of players they should target today.
