Thoughts On The Eagles Draft Part 2: Projections

Top Prospects I Like
On Star Lotulelei
If the Eagles plan on playing a 3-4, they need a dominating force at nose tackle that can be disruptive and create opportunities for the linebackers to make plays.
There were some concerns about his health, but he’s recently been given a clean bill. With the lack of 3-4 defensive lineman […]

Mock NFL Draft For April 23, 2013

Nobody wants to trade up to the number one spot.  Jacksonville hasn’t extended the contract of offensive tackle Eugene Monroe, so that probably means they’re going to grab Luke Joeckel or Eric Fisher depending on which one of them the Chiefs grab.  Everyone has the Raiders taking Sharrif Floyd, so that would leave the Eagles […]

Eagles Sitting In Great Position At Number Four

We’re just a couple of days away from the 2013 NFL Draft and there’s still no surety regarding which player is going to be the first pick in the draft.
It’s a given that Andy Reid and the Kansas City Chiefs will select one of the offensive tackles Luke Joeckel or Eric Fisher with their first […]

I Could See The Eagles Trading Down

What are the Eagles going to do at number four?  Will they pick one of the offensive tackles, who are expected to be excellent NFL blockers?   Luke Joeckel and Eric Fisher are up near the top of everybody’s board and Lane Johnson has been moving up the draft boards steadily since the NFL Combine.

Thoughts On The Eagles Draft Part 1: Biggest Needs

Team Needs
1. Offensive Line
Even with Jason Peters, Jason Kelce, and Todd Herremans returning from injury, the Eagles still have problems on the offensive line, and could use some fresh blood to upgrade the talent and give themselves more flexibility for this year and beyond.

This is one of the reasons, the Eagles and other teams monitor […]

Eagles Are Open To Trading Down

Yesterday, Eagles General Manager Howie Roseman talked about trades and the probability of trades.  During his time as the Eagles GM he has shown us that he’s open to trades at any and all times during the draft.  He said as much yesterday during his hour with the local media.  Roseman’s comment regarding trades, “We’re […]

Roseman Concerning Number Four In First: “You need to be sure”

Eagles General Manager Howie Roseman says this is a “meat and potatoes draft” with a bevy of quality offensive and defensive linemen available early.  I agree with him.
When you have the likes of offensive tackles like Luke Joeckel, Eric Fisher, Lane Johnson, guards like Chance Warmack and Jonathan Cooper, defensive tackles like Sharrif Floyd and […]

Analyzing Draft Prospects: E.J. Manuel

Many names have been linked to the Eagles throughout the draft process. Most have been first rounders for the Eagles to take with their number four overall pick. However, a name that the Eagles could grab with their second round pick is Florida State Quarterback EJ Manuel.
Manuel, 6-5 237 pounds, has the rare combination of […]

The top two offensive tackles in this draft, Texas A&M’s Luke Joeckel and Central Michigan’s Eric Fisher, have seen their names high on the draft boards throughout the process.  It will not be a surprise to anyone if the Eagles come down with one of them.   There’s also a chance that the Jaguars find […]
