Is Eagles CB Rasul Douglas A Starter? – Podcast

It was obvious to everyone that the Eagles entered this year’s draft with severe needs at the cornerback position.  That’s why no one was surprised when the Birds drafted a second cornerback, West Virginia playmaker, Rasul Douglas, in the third round.

Douglas has great size at 6’2″ 209 pounds, but he didn’t run an elite 40 time at 4.58.  The East Orange, New Jersey-native has the long arms to get good jams at the line of scrimmage, but he’s going to need to prove that he can run fast enough to cover NFL receivers.   The strength of Douglas’ game is the way he plays the football in the air.  He led college football in interceptions a year ago with eight of them.  If the football is in the air, Douglas believes it belongs to him.

My son Garry II and I take a close look at Douglas in the following podcast.

  1. Hearing rumors that the Eagles might be willing to trade Kelce for Mark Ingram and a draft pick. I would do this trade. Makes sense for both teams. Saints drafted Kamara, and signed AP in free agency. Ingram would definitely be an upgrade at RB. Maybe a change of scenery would do him justice

    • Former All-Pro Center Nick Mangold is still looking for a Team after being Released by the Jets earlier this Off-Season.. He wouldn’t Cost the Saints anything but his minimal 1 Year Salary.. Do note that the Saints Center Max Under is Under Contract thru the 2019 Season so why would they want to Trade for Kelce whose Contract runs thru 2020 if they just need him for 5-6-7 Weeks ?
      What do they do when Unger Returns ? Keep 2 Highly Paid Centers on Your Roster ?

  2. Eagles have reportedly signed UDFA Oklahoma DT Charles Walker. If Walker is healthy, has his depression under control and ready to commit to football as he has reportedly stated he is, it’s a great pick up for the DT rotation. When Walker wants to play he’s a flat out stud.

    • DT Walker can be a real Find and Player in this Schwartz Scheme, He’s Big (6-2 305lbs) Quick Feet and Nice use of his Hands and is explosive and a real penetrator.
      If DL Coach Chris Wilson can get through to Walker and have him respond,
      this can be a very nice Pick-up and Player.. DL Coach Wilson has 20 + Years Experience at the College Level and can really relate to Young Players very well as he did at USC, Miss State,Colorado and his Alma Mater Oklahoma

      An Eagles Rotation at DT of Cox, Jernigan,Walker, and Curry on Passing Situations could be very effective to generate a real consistent push up the middle of the Passing Pocket
