Kelly: We Never Offered Players To Titans

Eagles Draft 2015

NCAA Football: Fiesta Bowl-Oregon vs Kansas State

The godfather offer for Marcus Mariota?

It never happened, according to Chip Kelly.

“We didn’t offer any players to anybody,” he said Thursday night. “We didn’t get into any discussions. It was just a really steep price.” Read more »

Between now and the draft, we’ll zero in on one prospect a day with an Eagles slant. If you have a player you want covered, let us know on the Birds 24/7 Facebook page.

THE BACK STORY

Chip Kelly continued his draft prep today, reportedly working out USC wide receiver Nelson Agholor in Tampa.

Kelly has not hidden the fact that he believes this is once again a deep and talented group of wide receivers. And Agholor has a lot of the attributes that Kelly finds attractive. In 2012, Kelly’s final season at Oregon, Agholor lit up the Ducks for six catches, 162 yards and a touchdown as a freshman. Read more »

Eagles Seven-Round Mock Draft

Eagles Draft 2015

NCAA Football: Georgia at Arkansas

Here’s my seven-round mock draft for the Eagles:

Round 1, Pick 20 (20) – Trade for Marcus Mariota.

Originally, I wasn’t going to include trades, but it only makes sense at this point. I think the Mariota deal happens. Let’s take a stab at compensation.

I think the Eagles flip Sam Bradford (and likely a later round pick) to the Browns for No. 19. They then send the No. 19 pick, the No. 20 pick and their 2016 first rounder, along with two players (Fletcher Cox, Mychal KendricksBrandon BoykinVinny Curry) to the Titans for No. 2. Read more »

Every year, we try to get you ready for the first round with a cheat sheet.

This time around, we’re using Daniel Jeremiah’s top 50 list on NFL.com.

The idea here is simple. We divided his list into five different categories:

* The targets at No. 20 – Players in the mix if the Eagles stay put.
* Trade-up candidates – Guys they might be willing to move up for.
* Trade-down candidates – Guys who could be in play if they trade down.
* Wild cards – Prospects who are tough to categorize.
* Don’t count on it – Guys I don’t see them ending up with.

If you haven’t been keeping up with all the draft noise or need a primer for Thursday night, hopefully this piece serves that purpose. Read more »

We went over the wide receivers on Friday. Now it’s onto the defensive backs.

Since there are several guys with positional versatility, lumping them all together seemed to make the most sense.

Eagles vice president of player personnel Ed Marynowitz spent 36 minutes with the media Thursday morning. Here are three takeaways that we haven’t gotten to yet.

1. Marynowitz spoke at length about the Birds’ three-pronged approach to player evaluation. Keeping that in mind, I think there are several players who have little or no chance to be taken by the Eagles in the first round: Alabama safety Landon Collins; Washington CB Marcus Peters; Missouri WR Dorial Green-Beckham; Nebraska’s Randy Gregory; and Florida State’s P.J. Williams. Read more »
