Eagles 7-round mock draft

Round 1 (Pick 14)-Dalvin Cook, RB-Florida State

In a deep running back class, the argument will be made that the Eagles could wait on a three down running back, but Cook is exactly the type of explosive play-maker needed for this offense.  He has the vision and big play potential that would flourish as both a runner and receiver.  The Eagles proved by bolstering their offensive line and wide receivers during free agency that they want to improve around their franchise quarterback.  By adding a Cook, the Eagles will have a true three down back, something they have been missing since McCoy was traded to the Bills.  Mel Kiper does not believe Cook is worthy of the 14th overall pick and the Eagles have not drafted a running back in the first round since 1986, but Kiper is often wrong and 1986 was a long time ago.

Round 2 (Pick 42)-Gareon Conley, CB-Ohio State

Disciplined, intuitive and has good size for cornerback, traits that would translate well for a cornerback in the kind of scheme Jim Schwartz likes to play. Conley has plenty of experience playing on the big stage against some of the best competition on the collegiate level.  Conley had the luxury of playing with teammates slated to be first round selections in safety Malik Hooker and fellow cornerback Marshon Lattimore, but there is enough tape on him that says he can be a true number one cornerback at the NFL level.

Round 3 (Pick 75)-Carroll Phillips, DE-Illinois

Phillips is an interesting player, he has the talent and tape to be a mid-second round pick, but could fall to the fourth round due to some off the field questions.  Phillips reminds me of former Eagle Trent Cole, but has the athleticism to also play linebacker and assist in coverage.  Mentored by a former NFL coach in Lovie Smith, Phillips is NFL ready, and has the motor and work ethic that could have him starting week one of the 2017 season.

Round 4 (Pick 119)-KD Gannon, WR-Baylor

Gannon was one of the first receiver names on my draft board, his ability to stretch the field reminds me of the impact Mike Wallace had for the Steelers during his rookie season.  Gannon at the very worst is Kenny Stills, a player who the Eagles expressed interest in this off-season. Baylor has produced some notable wide receivers in recent memory in Kendall Wright, Terrance Williams, Josh Gordon and Corey Coleman.

Round 4 (Pick 139)-Damontae Kazee, CB-San Diego State

A ball hawking corner that has hands like a wide receiver, infused with a read and react like play-making style.  Kazee reminds me of Sam Shields, and would likely see time in dime packages and passing situations during his rookie season, but could certainly earn more playing time if able to replicate some of the interception totals from his college days.

Round 5 (Pick 154)- Ryan Glaskow,DT-Michigan

Think Kyle Williams of the Buffalo Bills, a defensive tackle that has athleticism that doesn’t necessarily math his appearance.  Glaskow has a terrific motor, is physical at the line of scrimmage and likes to get his hands on people. Glaskow won’t replace Bennie Logan, but he could command double teams and allow more space for Fletcher Cox to get after the quarterback.

Round 6 (Pick 197)–Shaquill Griffin, CB-Central Florida

A.J. Bouye 2.0, bold statement, but I firmly believe it’s more than the size and same school that Griffin shares with the now Jacksonville Jaguar.  Griffin is a smart player with terrific athleticism but needs to be coached up at the next level.  He is a perfect candidate for Cory Undlin to mentor, if Undlin finally lives up to the hype from when he arrived from the Denver Broncos.

Round 7 (Pick 232)-John Johnson, S-Boston College

Chris Maragos won’t be around forever, but he could certainly hand off his special team abilities to Johnson, a similar style of player who gets more out of his instincts then his overall athleticism.

106 thoughts on “Eagles 7-round mock draft

  1. Not a bad mock draft. Shaquill Griffin is definitely a sleeper prospect worth taking a shot on in the later rounds. KD Cannon has great speed, but, his hands are inconsistent as he’s known for dropping passes. I think DeDe Westbrook would be better value and a better receiver.

    1. Westbrook I like as well, but he would need to be a 3rd round guy. Phillips is a guy that I think has a tremendous ceiling, and I my confidence in Curry is low like for majority of Eagle fans.

  2. A Nice Mock with some Risk at Top with both Dalvin Cook and Carrol Phillips
    Carroll Phillips has only Started 1 Season in College

    I believe they need a more Experienced DE by the 2nd/3rd Round at the latest.. I Prefer these DE’s over Phillips

    1) Tarrell Basham – (Ohio 6-4 270lbs) – 4 Year Starter – Career Sack Leader at Ohio University playing in the MAC ,High Motor, Natural Pass Rushing Skills and Projects as a 2nd Rounder

    2) Jordan Willis – (Kansas State 6-4 255lbs) – 3 Year Starter – A Long-Armed , Rangy and Very Athletic with 4.53 Speed and a 39′ Vertical Jump to bat down Balls at the Line of Scrimmage and a 10’4″ Broad Jump to show Explosion.. Will need to get bigger and stronger which should not be a problem once in a NFL Strength Program, Projects as a 2nd Rounder

    3) Derek Rivers – (Youngstown State 6-4 250lbs) – 3 Year Starter, Holds School Record with Career Sacks at 41.. Coached by Bo Pelini.. Has a Quick Burst off the Edge with 4.61 Speed, 30 Reps at 225lbs with 35″ Vertical Jump and 10’3″ Broad Jump.. Needs to improve Technique,Strength and Gap/Edge Discipline as many Young Edge Rushers need to do..

    4) DeMarcus Walker – (Florida State 6-4 280lbs) Size, Strength with 25 Sacks over the last 2 Seasons at Fla State playing against Good Competition, Is Solid versus the Run, Is not real Explosive nor possess a real burst off the Edge would be his biggest weakness per Pro Scouts, but many Scouts feel he could develop on the Interior as a Pass Rusher from the DT Position.. Projects as a 3rd Rounder

    5) Daeshon Hall – (Texas A&M 6-5 266lbs) Converted from OLB to DE for his Senior Year and Played in the Wide 9 at Texas A&M opposite of Myles Garrett.. He has the Length, Leaping Ability nd Explosion by his Testing at the Combine as he Ran 4.76 40 Times, Leaped 36″ with 10’3″ Broad Jump.. Is rising up the Boards but needs to Improve DE Technique, Utilize his Hands more but Hall has many of the Skills that Jim Schwartz Likes in his DE’s
    Projects as a 3rd/4Rounder

  3. An Earlier Mock Draft (Version #10) that I listed on another Article but goes better here with this Current Article on the Draft

    Round 1 LB – Reuben Foster – (Alabama 6-1 235lbs) – Day 1 Starter and Enforcer in the Middle of the Defense which Allows Jordan Hicks to Play the WILL Position as the Eagles move on from Michael Kendricks and will give the Eagles their Best LB Corps in Years with Bradham,Foster and Jordan
    Most Have Foster rated as a Top 10, even a Top 5 NFL Prospect and a Projected 10 Year Starter with Pro-Bowl and Leadership Skills. The Eagles need to set an New Identity on Defense and Foster can help lead the way

    Rd 2 CB – Chadobe Awuzie – (Colorado 6-0 202 lbs) The Most Complete and Physical CB in this Draft… Fast, Strong and Physical, A Day 1 Starter and Future Pro-Bowler at the CB Position. (If Awuzie is gone, them I am going with Fabian Moreau from UCLA) I need to secure a Day 1 CB Starter with this 2nd Round Pick

    Rd 3 DE – Tarrell Bashell – (Ohio 6-4 269lbs) a Long, Lean, Pass-Rusher that suits Jim Schwartz Scheme well and adds instant Depth to a very thin DE Position for the Eagles. Schwartz entire Defense and Effectiveness is predicated on getting consistent Pressure from his Front 4

    Rd 4 CB – Jalen Myrick 0 (Minnesota 5-10 200lbs) The Fastest DB in the Draft timed with a 4.28 in the 40 Time, as would make a Promising Nickle/Slot CB to Cover those pesky Slot WR’s (Beasley,Crowder & Shepard in the NFC East) that every Team employs now in the NFL and as a Bonus has Kickoff/Punt Return Experience and could really be a Special Teams Demon and Replace Kenjon Barner with Kick-offs immediately and Darren Sproles with Punt Returns come 2018

    Rd 4 – WR Kenny Golladay (Northern Illinois 6-4 218lbs) A Developmental WR with very Good Hands, Feet, Route Running ability and obviously a Big Target who can really learn from Veteran WR’s Jeffrey & Smith and Replace DBG in 2018 and eventually become a Solid # 2 WR for down the Road

    Rd 5 – RB James Connor (Pitt 6-1 233lbs) A Bruiser who runs well between the Tackles and excels in Short-Yardage/Red-Zone Carriers where the Eagles have really struggled the last few Years.. He also has soft hands and feet for a Big Runner and could surprise coming out of the backfield for screens,etc

    Rd 6 – DT Charles Walker (Oklahoma – 6-2 310lbs) Provide DT Depth and Competition

    Rd 7 – CB/DB Nate Hairston (Temple 6-0 196lbs) Provide Secondary/Special Team Depth

  4. Using a simulator:








    No WR as trades are not available so I took BPA at 14 with all 3 WR gone by 10
    No way OJ Howard falls this far he may be the best offensive player in this draft.

    1. Nice Draft, I would have no problem the Eagles Drafting TE OJ Howard and Using a 4th Rounder on Sydney Jones who likely won’t Play until 2018 after suffering a Torn Achilles at his Workout Day last week
      Donta Foreman in the 3rd Round I am not as High on, with his recent Foot Issues
      QB Chad Kelly in the 6th is a nice surprise Pick and a good developmental Back Up QB to add to the Roster behind Wentz/Foles and has only dropped due to his off the field issues but has Talent

  5. Some good mock drafts..RB James Connor would be ideal in the 5th, but if the Eagles cannot draft him, then I would say go for RB Jalen Hurn in the 6th RB. Dude is 6’4 240 and runs very well for his size. Also catches the ball well out of the backfield too..

  6. We should to DLine first round. My mind has been made up.

    Howie has done an excellent job at adding talent to the Oline and depth.

    We need it on the Dline now. This is where games are won and loss at this level. At any level really. Let’s go Dline round 1 and our corner round 2 and 3. Take Mixon in the 4th or James Conner.

    But we really need to give Schwartz all the Dlinemen so he can let these boys loose.

    U can never have enough Dline talent. Ask the Giants who have two superbowls

    1. What DL do you like at #14 CT ? I really like Solomon Thomas from Stanford who can Play Inside and out on the Edge but is very likely a Top 10 Pick…
      There is a possibility that Jonathon Allen of Alabama may Drop to #14

      Derek Barnett is a very Good Player but posted average Physical Metrics during his Workouts and some Scouts question his Upside in the NFL

      Malik McDowell of Michigan State is very Talented but has some focus issues where he disappears in games too often for long stretches that concern Scouts/Coach’s/Teams

      Taco Charlton of Michigan has risen up the Charts and has the size and length that DC Jim Schwartz loves along the Outside.. At 6-6″ 277lbs and 34 1/4″ Reach, he has all the tools to compare to a Young Jadaveon Clowney,Julius Peppers, Chandler Jones, JPP type of Disruptive DE.. he needs to get stronger and improve on setting the edge to help in Stopping the Run Game

      Charles Harris from Missouri (6-3 258lbs) and is thought as a Mid/Late 1st Round Prospect and may be better suited as a 3-4 OLB as Connor Barwin is

      1. Damn Paul you like all these players and speak to their talents…. You must spend an awful lot of time watching college football to have formed such strong opinions…

    1. EHL- I couldn’t agree more!
      There are two reasons I don’t do much mock draft or pay attention.
      1. you have to take the BPA
      2. I don’t watch nearly enough college football to make even a wild guess who the BPA would be– its impossible to know w/o direct knowledge of their tape and team interview–
      Would be like hiring a college grad for your company without seeing his resume, transcripts or giving him an interview….

    2. There’s a couple of Edge Rushers who are Rotational Type of Players and will need a couple Years to Develop.. I don’t think the Eagles can spend a #14 Pick on a Developmental Player (Marcus Smith II as an example)
      They need to get 2 Starters/Major Contributors to their Defense within their first 3 Selections/Rounds from this Draft which is deeper on the Defensive Side of the Ball
      They need at least 1 Starting CB from Day 1 and a Starting LB and at least a Slot/Nickle CB out of this Draft’s early Rounds with DL Depth added from a real average DT Draft Class..

      1. What’s up Pman, I’ve been missing in action but I back. Question for you what happen to Gmcliff? I don’t see him posting anymore

        1. Hey Pdiddy, How’s it going…
          I have no idea what’s happened to GMCliff as he’s not posted anything on Gobb for a while, after being called out on many untruths and fabrications..

  7. But BPA means what exactly? A Term that get’s tossed around but means very little in reality… Does it mean the Best Overall Player that you have on Your Draft Board based on whatever Criteria you established? Is it the Most Athletic with the Best Metrics which could mean the Most Upside, Does it mean just a Better Fit with your Culture and Coaching Philosophies and Schemes? A High Football IQ,Coachable, from a Winning Background, An Over-Achiever ??? There are so many variables in what makes “BPA”…
    Who you end up Selecting, at least in the early Rounds become your “BPA” after all the Research/Analysis that you put into the Draft
    As I mentioned above, the Eagles need at least 2 Defensive Starters from this Draft and the Positions that need Talent and to be quite honest, Bodies, are the CB & LB Positions

    1. BEST PLAYER AVAILABLE– there is only one position that the eagles would not draft if available– QB– any of the other 21 the highest grade gets drafted– drafting for perceived need when you have 20 of them is stupid–

      1. Ask 20 People and Yes even Professional Scouts on who the BPA is at a specific Selection (#) , and You’ll get 15-20 Different Responses
        Certain Positions are simply harder to Fill than Others which is why QB’s, DB’s, DE’s/OLB,OT’s are all Viewed differently than RB’s, Interior OL,DT,ILB or Safety.. Roseman & Co will be looking for Defensive Players this Draft early on who can come in and Play/Contribute..
        All the PLayers are Talented so You pick the Best Players that You “feel” will Best fit your Schemes and Organization and fill a Need on your Roster
        If I have no CB’s on my Current Roster, then I have to Select CB’s to upgrade my Talent Level so I can field a Defensive Team to Compete.. Right Now the Eagles have a Huge Void at CB and it must be Field whether this was a strong Draft Class for the CB position or not.. Hopefully since its a good CB Close the Eagles can Draft really Good CB’s who can become fixtures on this Defense for years to come

        Lots of Possibilities for the Eagles and most other Teams this Year and since the Eagles are Host, I would expect them to make a Splash or Two during the Draft Weekend whether its a Trade Up/Trade Back/Selection of a Surprise Player or something that Roseman has up his sleeve.. I hope he can make a couple of Moves to get at least 1 More Pick or 2 would be fantastic to get within those first 4 Rounds (Top 150 Players or so)

        1. I really would hope that the eagles aren’t thinking of ‘making a splash’ because they are hosting…. if they make a splash i hope its for the right reasons. They made a franchise changing splash last year- thats good enough for me. draft the best player on their board at 14 or if going back a few spots for an extra pick or two– lots of needs, needs lots of players….

  8. Does it mean the Best Overall Player that you have on Your Draft Board based on whatever Criteria you established? Is it the Most Athletic with the Best Metrics which could mean the Most Upside, Does it mean just a Better Fit with your Culture and Coaching Philosophies and Schemes? A High Football IQ,Coachable, from a Winning Background, An Over-Achiever ??? There are so many variables in what makes “BPA”…
    Who you end up Selecting, at least in the early Rounds become your “BPA” after all the Research/Analysis that you put into the Draft

    paul all of these questions that you ask are exactly why mocks are stupid– you nor anyone has enough info–

    1. That’s why they are called “Mock Drafts” HAC !!!!
      For Discussion, To look at Players who maybe are great Fits, Or Overlooked and not well-known about, or Players to Avoid and to pass the time with slow news until the Draft actually arrives..

      RB Chris McCaffrey could be the Eagles Surprise Pick at #14 and would be a perfect Weapon to add to their Offense and basically would Replace Darren Sproles come 2018 and be that Big Play Back out of the Backfield and Special Teams for the next 5-6-7 Years

  9. And even after the self analysis that a Team does breaking down 100’s of Prospects, Hours of Film, Interviews and Workouts and Developing a Wish List based on improving the Talent Level of their Teams and addressing certain Positions, then it comes down to where you are Slotted and which are Teams are doing and what their needs and how the Draft breaks based on certain Positions being valued heavier than others based on the strength of the Draft… This Year QB/OT is not look at as a real strong Position of the Draft where in recent Drafts many QB’s and OT’s have flown off the Draft Board early and Often, This years it’s more DE,CB,OLB,RB, Safety,WR & TE
    One thing we do know is that the NFL is still a Passing League so Most Teams are always going to be looking for Pass Rushers and DB’s to cover these Big WR’s as well as Having Pass-Protectors (OT’s) for these $100 Million QB’s

    For the Eagles a Real Wildcard Pick at #14 could be OT Cam Robinson from Alabama who kind of disappointed last Season and had just an average Workouts/Combine that some Teams question his Desire and Motor, though he has freakish Athletic Potential… Size, Strength and Good Feet who may be better suited at the NFL Level as Punishing Guard instead of an OT..

  10. Paulman what do you think about Derek Barnett out of Tennessee had a chance to check him out and he’s a monster. Myles Garrett gets the most attention when it comes to defensive end but I think Derek Barnett is every bit as good if not better yet I don’t hear his name come up much if at all. Would you take Barnett at 14?

    1. I’m hoping Solomon Thomas out of Stanford pAulman.

      Bring in that Dline depth and add another pass rushing monster next to curry, cox, and Graham to really bring this team to the next level.

      With a deep corner draft another one can be taken later.

      I’m hoping corners WRs and qbs go early to make That happen and him falll to us.

      If he doesn’t fall then I guess it’s corner 110 percent without a doubt

    2. You can’t argue with Barnett’s Production and Reliability at the College Level and he leaves Tennessee as the All-Time Sack Leader (33 Sacks) and Tackles for Losses (56 Tackles for losses) in 3 Years of Playing College Ball and Played in 36 Games there breaking the Volunteer Sack/TFL Records held by Reggie White..
      . He’s 6-3 259lbs with a very Strong lower body, flexible and natural Pass-Rusher with good Technique and Great Hands.. He’s a real Bull Dog that keeps coming and coming and uses his Hands probably better than any DL in this Draft… The downside that some Scouts see in his game is that he lacks Explosion off the Snap and that his Arms/Reach are little shorter than most Teams like out on the Edge and has maybe peaked athletically and does not have the pure athleticism and length that other Pass/Edge Rushers have.. Some Scouts (CBS Sports & Walter Camp) have compared him to a Elvis Dumerville/Robert Ayres Type that could be effective in a 3-4 Scheme while others see him as a Trent Cole/Vinny Curry/Brandon Graham Type where his relentless Pursuit,Technique and Instincts maybe make up for a lack of Overall Athleticism.. His 40 Time was 4.88 with a 31″ Vertical Jump and a 9’8″ Broad Jump…

      I like Derek Barnett, but I would not take him at #14 Overall.. There are more Dynamic Players on Defense that I would take over him at this Spot.. The Eagles need to add some Play Makers to this Defense

      Derek Barnett’s Production at a Big Time Program from the SEC will create a lot of Interest and looks from Teams like the Panthers (#8), Bengals (#9), Saints (#11), Eagles (#14), Colts (#15), Ravens (#16), Redskins (#17) & Lions (#21) are all said to have a Pass-Rushing needs and a Strong Interest in him

      1. I have no interest in Derrick Banett at # 14. Please stop wanting to overdraft players because of position. I don’t think his get off (first step is that good. He’s not explosive. Barnett’s sacks are based on timing the snap. Great anticipation, but, NFL Tackles have the athletic ability to recover.

      2. I do like Solomon Thomas the most from the DL Draft Class..
        I like his Upside more than Myles Jarrett, Jonathon Allen or any other DE from this Draft Class..

  11. According to a report on Bleeding Green Nation, the Eagles are bringing in Joe Mixon for a private workout. This is a good move. We already know the Eagles went to his pro day and had their head security man (Dom) talk with him. Dom must have green lighted Mixon. Further, Jeff Lurie must’ve green lighted him as well. If not, the eagles would not waste time bringing him in for a workout. Good move on the Eagles part. If available at pick 43 I believe the Eagles will draft Joe Mixon. He’s the perfect back for this team skill wise.
    #Draft Joe Mixon!

    1. I am so on the fence with this guy. What he did was despicable. Can’t defend it. That being said, if they are willing to give Vick a shot, I don’t see how they can take the moral high ground with this guy. Get ahead of the issue and have him out front talking about it and advocating against violence. If he is really changed, then he would embrace that new role. People are going to hate him no matter what, but it is how you stand after your mistake and your actions that follow that should be what people focus on. I think that the league should be in the business of supporting guys like this instead of turning their back on him.

      1. im fine with him. awful decision but a young man likely drunk and having some crazy mess with him is a recipe for disaster.

        its not like he was a grown man with kids who was beating his kids intentionally in the genitals or something… if that got swept under the rug and forgotten this will too

        1. I’ve joined the mixon train lately and he looks like leveon bell on the field, not as quick but he has more long speed, I’m definitely taking him in 2no

          1. hey if ezekiel out there sexually assaulting women and not getting suspended im sure the backlash on this would be minimal

          2. If available at 43 you have to take Joe Mixon. It’s talent acquisition malpractice if you don’t. I’ve been saying it for 3 weeks now. You have to draft this guy in the second.

              1. I don’t believe the Eagles will Select Him at #43
                Maybe Chris McCaffrey at #43
                I think Coach Pederson likes his Rushing attack handled by committee to give Defenses different looks based on RB Corp’s Skill Set
                A Big Back (Blunt ?) for Short Yardage/Red-Zone, Running the Clock Down/Out
                Scat Back (Sproles) who can Catch and work the edges and then a change of pace Back that can do a little of both (Smallwood)

              2. Mixon is an all around back. Power, speed, runs between tackles and off the edge, catches the ball as well as a receiver. Then you have Sproles and Smallwood to slash. McCaffrey will not be there at 43..book it. I have not seen enough interest in McCaffrey from the Eagles. Plenty of attention is being shown to Mixon and Cook by the Eagles..based on that it’s my opinion the Eagles are not drafting Christian McCaffrey.
                With the 43rd pick in the 2017 NFL draft. The Philadelphia Eagles pick..Joe Mixon..running back..Oklahoma.

  12. Good news embiid had surgery today to repair slight meniscus tear, it went great and the doctor said it will not be a degenerate issue, he will return for summer activities, that’s awesome, the process will be ready to explode next yr

  13. Good news embiid had surgery today to repair slight meniscus tear, it went great and the doctor said it will not be a degenerate issue, he will return for summer activities, that’s awesome, the process will be ready to explode next yr

    1. Dearon fox drops 39 on ball of ucla shows he’s a top 10 pick also, he shut down ball held him to 10 points as he scorched him on other end, I don’t want ball, fox is not the best shooter but man he is a carbon copy of John wall, he’s speed and athletic ability destroyed ball, I wouldn’t mind him at pick 5 or 6

      1. Love fox man guy does it and has it all. Soooo fast and athletic. Great d.

        I’d love him at 5 too. He’s actually #3 on my wish list after Fultz and Jackson. Real turned off on ball. Guys jumper is highly suspect and he makes some head scratching decisions – like pulling up 5 feet behind arc 5 seconds into the shot clock thinking he’s curry. Nah. My #4 is Dennis smith

        Sixers gonna end up 7th or 8th a worst team (man twolves need a new coach what a waste of talent )

        Hopefully sac keeps losing and finishes fourth worst… maybe they can win the lotto at the lakers expense. Either way unless we win the lotto we swapping pics with them. We are too well coached and Dario too good for us to finish ahead of Knicks and Orlando…

  14. What’s up with all of these players voicing their opinions regarding Kaperdick. Who cares if he hasn’t signed with a team yet. Is there a rule in the NFL that states a team has to sign a player because he is getting no love around the league? So ridiculous. He is the one who decided not to stand and make a point. Well, he definitely made it clear to everyone how he feels. So much so that he didn’t even register to vote…enough said. Now go get a real job like the rest of us in the world..

    1. I wish people leave the dude alone he is actually doing good in his community and wanted to bring awareness to a situation getting out of hand, he’s a bad qb so that’s why he ain’t signed hopefully, but he’s good enough to be a back up

    2. Last I checked Kaepernick has donated 1 million dollars to assist Somalians starving in their country due to political unrest and war. Further, in this country he has donated thousands to meals on wheels due to the budget cuts of the Trump administration. This money will go to feed some of the very same people who voted for Trump and is now getting shafted by him..the irony.
      I think Kaep is a true American and Patriot. Standing for a song and saluting the flag does not make you a patriot or a good human being. Those of you who knock him, what are you doing to make your community, city, country or the world a better place? People getting all worked up over a song and a flag…get a life and do something to make your country men’s lives better. Standing for the pledge does not feed people or make their lives better. Put your money where your mouths are is what I have to say to anyone who knocks Kaep.
      I don’t agree with him not voting as that is the mindset that has elected this current president…but that’s all I disagree with him on.

  15. Kaepernick will be out of a job until the Draft comes and goes and Teams re-evaluate their QB / Back-Up QB Status.. the Reality is that not many NFL GM’s view Kaepernick as a Quality NFL Starter in a Pro-Style Offense .. I could Teams like The Chiefs, Seahawks, Raiders, Packers giving him a look if they don’t address the position from the Draft

  16. I respect your opinion Eagleshavelanded, and this is what makes my/our country so amazing because we can voice our opinions. I’m not going to get into what I have done for my great county or my city here in California, but the point I’m trying to make is that no owners/management has to give anyone employment if they chose not to. There discretion

  17. Paulman, I like your thoughts on McCaffery. I think he would be a solid pick at #14. I do not want the Eagles to draft for need. Best player available in my book

    1. The more you watch and read up on McCaffrey, there’s a lot to like..
      He’s a little bit bigger (5-11″) and stronger (202lbs) than I originally thought,
      I don’t see him handling the ball 15-20 Times a Game but he is so versatile in the Passing Game, Return Game as well Running the Ball on Draws, Sweeps. etc that he could take over Sproles Role and Production by 2018 and for the next few Seasons and be that Playmaker from the Backfield Position that you have to have and keep Defenses honest .. Is 50-60 Receptions a Year with another 400-500 in Rushing Yards and Big Plays in the Return Game worth the #14 Overall Pick of the Draft? I would say it is.. look what kind of impact Tyreke Hill had on the Chiefs usually boring and predictable Offense last Season. McCaffrey has been relatively Injury free during his College Career and very Durable and Productive in Rushing, Receiving and Special Teams..
      now if your the Eagles and let’s say they Draft him , then do you turn around and Trade Darren Sproles to eliminate his $4 Million Salary and get at least a Mid-Round Pick in Return? McCaffrey would basically be in the same role as Sproles so if the Eagles keep Sproles, how often would McCaffrey play in 2017? You can’t select him early in Draft and not Play him so Sproles would have to go and is that’s something they want to do?

  18. Krappernick don’t have a job because he blows. The guy is and always was awful. He can’t play

    1. Kaep’s problem is that he has blown as a QB lately, in addition to his protest, it makes him not worth the trouble in some owners eyes. I don’t know what he’s asking for contract wise, that may have something to do with it too. The Bears’ QB situation is horrendous though as Mark Sanchez has just signed on as the back up and Mike Glennon is the starter. There are a lot of teams with garbage at the QB position, Kaep, Cutler, RG3 all are without jobs right now. So glad Howie mortgaged the future (wink wink lmao) and traded up to get Carson Wentz. The 2017 QB draft class stinks!

      1. One other thing about Krap is that he isn’t wanted as a backup because very few teams run a style of offense that suits his ‘strengths ‘ … hell LLCB ran a Krap style offense and he still didn’t play.

        As for mortgaging the future??? Hmmm Howie bought that house well under market value at zero percent interest

  19. That is a good point to bring up Paulman. It would be interesting to see what the Eagles could get for Sproles if the Eagles selected McCaffery at #14. It would be my guess that they would move Sproles if that were the case. Save 4 million and get a draft pick..makes sense

  20. I’ve always said the eagles should trade sproles due to this being his last season and us not being a Super Bowl contender, the perfect spots for him if your gonna trade him are the colts or the broncos….. 2 super bowl ready teams just missing pieces in the run game and a skat back… there is no reason to be on this team if your trying to go young and i would also entertain trade of peters to seattle for sherman…

    1. I’m not sure about the Colts Gloomy being a SB Contender . The have a new GM, Hired some new Coaches and who are busy in re-building their Roster to become a more Physical, Ball-Control Team..They will likely be picked 3rd in their own Division behind the Texans/Titans who are pointing upwards and even the Jags will be improved moving forward.. Andrew Luck needs to step up his Game and still throws too many Int’s and takes risky chances with the Ball
      I do agree that’s they would be interested in a Player like Sproles as many Teams would
      I think Sproles could return a 5th/6th Round Pick on his own or maybe trade with a Pick to be able to move up in a Round … (Eagles Send a 5th Rd Pick & Sproles to a Team for their 4th Rd Pick)

      Bottom line, if you Draft RB McCaffrey at #14, or even RB Dalvin Cook, then I think you have to move on from Sproles to allow for Playing time for your Top Pick who is pretty much going to be in the same role as Sproles..

  21. WOW

    Josh Gordon is jacked TF up! guy looks like hes been juicing I mean training with Brock Lesner.

    On a serious note I would take a flyer on this crackhead. Id effeminately draft Mixon too.

    I know its a pipe dream and kinda dumb from a locker room stand point with a young team. But adding crackhead gordon thats ripped and pairing him with a rejuiced lane johnson and a rejuiced alshon and mixon… that could be nasty pending they could all figure out how to juice and get away with it.

    1. I don’t know about Josh Gordon, but Joe Mixon needs to be drafted by the Eagles. Glad to see people are coming around to the idea of him playing in Philadelphia.

      Josh Gordon, man, can he leave the weed alone long enough to play a season?

    1. Man Google Gordon , haven’t seen a wr that jacked since TO. Can’t imagine anyone would give him more than 3.5-4mill per. Worth a flyer on a 1 yr deal

  22. I have a sneaky suspicion the Eagles will move Jordan Matthews on draft day. I think the Eagles will draft WR John Ross with the #14 pick, and move Matthews for a 3rd round pick. The Eagles will have a tough time signing both Matthews and Jeffery next season.

    1. Idk about that imo Ross will be a stellar #2 but injuries are a major concern. If u trade jmatt u really putting all ur eggs in 1 basket (Alshon). Not very wise imo considering he a juicer and hasn’t dominated for a few years and has soft tissue injury risk…. if Alshon busts ur stuck with shit again.

      To make that move I think u need to go Corey Davis not Ross.

      1. If Corey Davis is available at 14 he has to be the pick. I can get a small fast receiver later in the draft. DeDe Westbrook or Shelton Gibson will give me a similar skill set as John Ross. Field stretcher that can make plays after the catch.

  23. Absolutely not. You have to keep Jordan Matthews for this upcoming season. He needs to be in the slot with Matthews and Torrey on the outside and Zach Ertz and Burton underneath.

    Why draft John Ross when Torrey Smith is meant to be your speedster at only age 28?

    People forget how good Torrey Smith really is because it feels like forever ago the Ravens were in the SB. He was Second behind Desean is touchdowns for 40+ yards and was a top 15 player in targets.

    When he went to San fran he went to a 160th target player with multiple qbs, coaches and systems in 2 years.

    Draft your WR next year to replace Jordan Matthews.
    Draft another in the later rounds this year.

    We do not have a corner on the roster. We have to go with Jamal Adams, Jabrill Peppers, or Tredevious White with the 14th pick.

    Defense, Defense,Defense. Lets win championships. Not build a superstar offense.

  24. ……………………..BREAKING NEWS………………..

    According to 97.5 the Fan, the Eagles are about to sign DE Chris Long. According to Ian Rappaport deal is 1year..2 million.

    Further, Zach Berman was on the Fan this morning. He all but stated that the Eagles were looking to draft a RB in the second round. The RB they are looking at ..Joe Mixon as they have been doing their due diligence as it relates to Mixon.

  25. Great signing and another 1 year deal..

    Rememebr Chris Long wanted to leave the Patriots so he could “become the players he used to be.” He just got his ring, so I expect the 32 year old Pass rusher to be a beast.

    He was in a system in NE where they rotate constantly, and he didnt start alot of games last year (7 out of 16) and got 4 sacks.

    The years before that he had 3 sacks and 1 but I believe it was partly due to injuries and playing in LA.

    He will be a nice rotational player with Curry and Graham

      1. No Gloom and Doom Cap Worries for ME, Its not my $$$$
        The Reality is the Eagles are Currently Approx $10 Million Over on their Cap
        (This does account for the $6.8 Million Allocated for their 8 Draft Selections)

        Now we all know that RB Ryan Matthews will be Released once his He is Medically Cleared which will knock off $4 Million from the 2017 Cap Amount
        So the next Steps are that more Current Players will be Released or Traded come Draft Weekend or shortly thereafter by Summer Camp
        The Obvious PLayers to Move

        1) Jason Kelce – Saves $3.8 Million after Dead $$$
        2) Alan Barbre – Saves $1.75 Million after Dead $$$
        3) Michael Kendricks – Saves $6.2 Million if he can be Traded, Eagles Would eat $2.5 Million in Dead $$$ if Released in 2017, so maybe expect a June 1st Release Exemption where a Dead $$$ loss can be spread out over 2 Years
        4) MSII – Saves $1.5 Million after Dead $$$$

        Some less Obvious That could be moved
        1) Darren Sproles – If a RB is Drafted early (McCaffrey/Cook/Mixon) then Sproles could be Moved or end up a Cap Casualty and Save $4 Million
        2) Jordan Matthews – Saves $1 Million

        Also Note that $6.8 Million That is Allocated for the Draft is based on their Current 8 Draft Picks and their Selections, but maybe the Eagles happen to Trade 1 or some of the above Players listed and Toss in a Draft Pick or Two or trade multiple Picks to Move up which in turn, would lower their Draft Picks and therefore lessen their total Allocation, so there are many Variables as the Cap Amount is fluid and does not have to be figured out until August when the Final Rosters are Set, but currently the Eagles are about $10 Million Over the Cap so a few Players will have to be moved and or some Current Deals Re-Worked

    1. I’m thinking 1st rd we get davis or trade back and get taco Charlton, is there dead money if we trade curry, either way he better explode this yr or he is gone next yr

      1. Curry has a Dead Cap $$$ Hit of $15 Million for 2017 and a $9 Million Salary
        I don’t see a Team Trading for him to assume his Contract ..
        2018 Season – Curry is Due $11 Million in Salary with a $6 Million Cap-Hit

  26. With Chris Long Signing, I believe MS2 will be Released after the Draft saving $1.5 MiIllion if he can’t be traded on Draft Weekend… Steve Means outworked and outplayed MS2 as the 4th Rotational DE last Year.. Remember that the Eagles have Alex McAllister coming back from Injury to battle it out with Means for that 4th DE Rotational Spot and the Eagles will likely add a DE/DL in this Draft too..

    Vinny Curry will likely be used more as designated Pass-Rusher from the DT Spot in obvious Passing Downs

  27. really starting to stink like something will happen with peters or lane, either cut, trade or restructure.

    think sproles prob goes

    1. doesn’t hurt me! even a little! means zero– who have they not signed as a result? the 12.5 for turd got us a 1 and a 4– Osweiller PLUS a 2 costs the browns $16M– off the ledge young man– howie the accountant has got this.

      1. lmfao i dont care about the money but the FACT is howie does, and has to do something about it. lmfao. money matters, decisions have to be made that may be a little harder.

        it was a smart decision to dump daniels he is tragic but howie brought him in… essentially we paid 12.5 mill for wentz…

        its all part of the package here dude as much as u wanna say it dont matter it does

        1. how does it matter? what hasn’t gotten done? as you indicate its part of the package (your own words) — its just the cost of doing business– the money is so ridiculous it is had for us to fathom but howie seems to have strengthened, using money that most of you don’t think he has, our team– WR, OL, DE all were bought, a first round pick bought– dunno just part of the BIZ– also i don’t care if professionals at that level have to make hard decisions… they are big boys making big money– gotta cut nice guy barwin to save money– so what– same with kelce et al.

          1. H the A doesn’t have the flexabilty he likes to have i grant you that. HOWEVER, he absolutely sees his way out of it by 18-19 and its back to the same ol’ H the A. In the meantime we are building yet remaining somewhat in the hunt– with a sophomore QB and hopefully a playoff birth…

          2. what does it matter? HUH ? U stoned? what doesnt it matter? what hasnt gotten done? We have no corners except Mills.

            that money isnt hard to imagine for me at all, actually its fairly easy

            if money didnt matter we wouldve signed Bouye and Gilmore in addition to everyone else we signed. money matters dude stop. no 12.5 in dead $ we sign a corner

            1. and we don’t have the 14 pick — one of those two CBs will be a bust– we draft Troy and Bobby or Sheldon and Lito– its all good– build thru the draft– FA is not for the big money guys– at least not wasting money on completely over priced cap busters.
              As for a high priced corner– I can only assume you missed the Namdi and Maxwell era’s? its all good man– H the A has got it under control.

              1. lmfao

                im the biggest howie supporter there is but best believe if there was no salary cap business would be conducted in an entirely different way. b/c we busted on nnamdi and maxwell does not mean u never buy a corner (revis to pats worked out no?) maxwell was foolish from day 1, i know i hated it and there was zero rationale for giving him that deal

                nnamdi was poor talent evaluation i guess, well that and character evaluation.. but past bad decisions dont correlate to future similar decisions. ryan leaf busted does that mean the chargers should never draft a qb 1st or 2nd whatever pick he was?

              2. point is the cap is where it is for many reasons. 1. LLCB fucked up 2. he didn’t understand the importance of a QB and 3. given the state of the nfl they feel they can remain competitive with a couple of stop gap guys in there (which i agree with)
                of course howie would do it differently– the guy is a genius with that stuff.
                as for don’t be shy because of bad passed signings. i agree my bigger point is that high priced guys aren’t a slam dunk by any means–

              3. AJ. Bouye signed for $13 M a year– he started 19 games in 5 years and has 1 int…. henski why in the world are you whiny about not signing him?? i don’t get it.

  28. ewwwwwwwww

    Florida CB Teez Tabor’s fastest unofficial forty was clocked at 4.75s at the Gators’ pro day workout on Tuesday.
    This is a disheartening development for his evaluation. Tabor began moving out of the first-round conversation earlier this month when he clocked a 4.62s forty at the NFL Scouting Combine. He needed to improve upon that number at his pro day workout, but strangely regressed upon it instead. To put his time in perspective, it was slower than 6-foot-4, 280-pound FSU DE DeMarcus Walker’s 4.76 showing. “The magic number for corners is 4.60. Anything above that, and the alarm goes off,” Jeremiah said. “That could have a major impact. People can say the 40 is overrated, but the one position where it matters most is corner. Teams will take his best time, which was at the combine — his magnet on everybody’s board will say 4.62 — but this was a big opportunity to help himself, and he didn’t.” NFL Network’s Mike Mayock’s dropped Tabor out of his top-five rankings at the position.

    1. Not a teez tabor fan anyway. Glad that he will not be playing for the Eagles. That is a safety time, he may be able to play zone, but not a man corner at all.

    1. A Nice Pick-up, A Former 1st Round Draft PIck by the Saints in the 2010 Draft out of Florida State. Has Size/Length at 5-11′ & 192lbs and Good Ball Skills, with a Nice Reach and is still Fast as he Ran a 4.46 in his Indy Combine Time.
      Downside is that he’s not very Physical and Lacks in the Run Support area and has had a tough time staying Healthy but has shown to be a Decent/Good Cover CB and is probably better suited as a Zone Cover CB and maybe could Develop into a Nice Slot CB.. He had a Decent Season in 2015 with the Chargers where last Year was kind of a lost Season for him with the Colts

  29. Eagles will have Jalen Mills, Patrick Robinson & Draft Pick compete at Outside CB while Ron Brooks plays the Slot… CJ Smith and Dewayne Gratz are on the Roster to Compete for Nickle/Back-Up Roles
    I believe the Eagles Draft 2 CB’s and Invite a couple more to Camp

  30. Henski I know e point very well… The point is the cap is manageable,.. It is know big deal… You said if money doesn’t matter we would have sinpgning Bouye… Why would we want to do that? Howie will have this thing rig where he wants it when it’s time to make a serious run… Relax on he cap he got this.
