Open Thread: NFL Draft, Day One

NCAA Football: Washington at Oregon State

Tim and Sheil will drop in throughout the night with updates from the NovaCare Complex. As always, feel free to share your thoughts in the comments. Note that the most recent updates will be at the top of this post.

***


11:15 - The Eagles select Louisville OLB Marcus Smith. He had 14.5 sacks last year and is a versatile athlete. Here is my full video breakdown of Smith.

10:48: Eagles trade the 22nd pick to Cleveland, which took none other than Johnny Manziel. Receive the 26th overall pick and a third-rounder (83 overall) in return.

10:34 - The Packers take safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix. The Eagles are on the board. The guess here? USC WR Marqise Lee.

10:23 - The Saints trade up and take Oregon State WR Brandin Cooks. He was a real option for the Eagles. It's the Packers, then the Eagles. The most likely pick is Marqise Lee. Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and Bradley Roby are also options.

10:11: Getting closer. Calvin Pryor to the Jets at 18. Darqueze Dennard, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, Brandin Cooks, Marqise Lee, Bradley Roby and Johnny Manziel among best available as Eagles' turn nears.

9:41 - A potential Eagles target off the board: The Bears take CB Kyle Fuller. Of all the defensive backs, he was the best scheme fit. But the Birds won't get a shot at him. The Rams took DT Aaron Donald at No. 13. Safeties Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and Calvin Pryor are still on the board.

9:27 - Another wide receiver off the board. The Giants go with LSU's Odell Beckham Jr. At No. 11, the Titans took Michigan offensive tackle Taylor Lewan. The next two best wide receivers on the board for the Eagles are USC's Marqise Lee and Oregon State's Brandin Cooks. Oh, and Johnny Manziel has not been taken yet.

9:13 - This draft is off the rails. Cleveland goes Justin Gilbert at 8.  Anthony Barr -- a potential target for the Eagles -- went to Minnesota at 9. The Lions went with North Carolina tight end Eric Ebron.

9:00 - Shady checking in:

8:55 - Our second receiver is off the board. There will be no trade-up for Mike Evans. The Texas A&M WR is going to the Bucs to team up with Vincent Jackson. The best wide receivers on the board are LSU's Odell Beckham Jr., USC's Marqise Lee and Oregon State's Brandin Cooks.

8:49 - Well, we know which quarterback the Eagles are probably facing in Week 1 now. Surprised the Gus Bus didn't go with the pass rusher. Rolls with Bortles instead, and Khalil Mack drops to Oakland at 5.

8:35 - And now our first trade! The Bills move up to No. 4 to take Clemson WR Sammy Watkins. I love Watkins, but Buffalo included its 2015 first-round pick in the deal. That's a steep price. The Browns, meanwhile, move down five spots and will have two first-rounders again next year.

8:30 - We have our first surprise! The Jaguars take Central Florida QB Blake Bortles. And we have our first quarterback off the board. The more quarterbacks that go in the top 21, the better for the Eagles. That will leave more wide receivers and defensive players on the board.

The Rams took Auburn OT Greg Robinson with the second pick.

8:15 - And we're off. The Texans take Jadeveon Clowney. In Week 9, the Eagles will travel to Houston. J.J. Watt and Clowney? Some nice pieces to work with on that defense.

7:32 - Talked to league source who predicted Anthony Barr will go somewhere between the 8-20 range, and said there is a chance the Eagles will move up to get him.  Everything with a grain of salt, but if he gets beyond 15 or so, worth watching. -- TM

5 p.m. - The draft begins at 8 p.m., and the Eagles have the 22nd pick. Here's a full rundown of their selections over the next three days:

1st round (22)
2nd round (54)
3rd round (86)
4th round (122)
5th round (162)
7th round (237)

Rounds 2 and 3 are Friday (starting at 7 p.m.). Rounds 4 through 7 are Saturday (noon). -SK

  • NCBiRDMann22

    Man I can’t wait to see what happens. Chip is such a wildcard!

    • eaglefansocal

      Totally agree, very exciting with Chip involved and Howie and company doing a much better job the last couple of years.

      • NCBiRDMann22

        You just know he is different from how Andy used to operate. He’s bold and isn’t afraid to make waves. I love it!

      • Brazilnut

        I’d just like to throw it out there that the only 2 years Roseman actually had control he absolutely killed it.

  • Marvin Nichols

    I want a Week 1 starter….. period. No projects, no replacements for later years…. We have a Super Bowl offense with a Toilet Bowl defense. Let’s get a game changer….

    • anon

      I do think that we, unlike most teams can beat you in the air and on the ground depending on what the defense gives us. But we aren’t Broncos level – but we could be…

  • eaglefansocal

    Barr, Mosely, or Dix are the only defensive game changers that the Eagles might be able to get. If not just take the best receiver available or trade back and take a 2nd tier pass rusher.

  • Eaglehaslanded

    Philadelphia Eagles…Anthony Barr…..some how, some way!

  • Andy124

    Sheil, Tim. The intern screwed up again. That’s not a picture of Barr.

    • peteike

      ha, whoever posted that article about Cooks it was a good read. Im just finishing it now.

    • mtn_green

      Agreed.

    • http://www.corcommunity.com/ theycallmerob

      shhh, the intern is right with this one!

      • Andy124

        The only thing that can make me want Cooks is for the Eagles to draft him.

  • oreofestar

    Lets be honest we have no clue what they will do they can trade up or down or stay put get a corner a safety wr or OLB nothing would surprise me except stupid Maniel stuff so I am jjust in wait and see mode hoping I like the results

  • peteike

    So where does Lattimer go, top of 2nd? Also whats anyones guess on number of O players vs D players assuming we have just 6 picks. Im guessing 4 O, 2 D, the new CK way

    • mtn_green

      With BPA and this draft that’s a hard question. Everything after round 4 is garbage. I’ll say 2/2 in first four rounds.

    • Neanderthal

      If we get.wr in 1st and Larimer is still there at 54 , do you take him?

      • peteike

        hmm, prob not. I dont think they take 2 WRs in a row with the depth there. Theyd be giving up depth in other spots to make that move. Possible though.

  • Neanderthal

    Would love it if Marcus Smith is available in 2nd rd. Like him better than Barr, but it might be because I have been burnt by Ucla players in past.

    • mtn_green

      I don’t think the eagles are certain on their pick, they’ve got their board and will pick the top player when it gets to them.

    • peteike

      funny the more I read about Smith the more I like him. On the flip side I went from liking lee to reading so many negatives that now Im not sure and may be disappointed if they take him. Ha, who knows

      • Neanderthal

        The beauty of try to predict the future. Lol. I usualy go with my first impression. I love Lee.

  • Mikeq

    I like to think of Chip as one of those old school James Bond movie villains- the guys who always had some crazy-ass plan for world domination. I’ll feel good about tonight if they switch to the Eagle war room camera and Kelly is sitting there gently petting a cat on his lap while laughing maniacally.

  • oreofestar

    It seems the Lions like Barr (they run a 4-3 I believe tsk tsk tsk) too early to trade up for him I am not going that high would not go higher than 15 so if it true no Eagles-Barr union

  • Hanibal Luis

    At this point, I’m resigned to the fact that Barr won’t be available barring a decent trade up. It’s fine, go get the best playmaker you can or surprise the heck out us.

    • George

      haha BARRing lol pun intended??

      • Hanibal Luis

        Yes and no :P
        Damn Vikes!

  • oreofestar

    Been hearing that very good chance 5 wrs go before 22 which is excellent I think Haha could fall I would like him, could see us picking up Gilbert or Fuller I can see Gil sliding, there is still the Barr wildcard C.J and the ever so popular trade back scenario

  • Maggie

    So far I haven’t had a real favorite as I don’t want to spend the weekend sobbing. However, since the mood needs lightening, here goes. Note: this pic was posted once before a few weeks ago, but I don’t care. My first round draft pick:
    When he was rescued he was underweight and weak from living in a cage for 2 years. Was afraid to go outside. Since then he has put on almost 2 pounds of solid muscle, thanks to proper nutrition, fresh water, optimal sleeping conditions and countless cardio workouts. He has a 24″ vertical leap, thanks to 40 jumps per day on and off the couch, and he can run a couple of 40′s without hardly panting at all. His ball return skills need some coaching up however.
    Finally, he was abandoned, put into a shelter, taken to the vet for teeth cleaning and “snipping”. (Sorry guys.) The next day, he was carried to my relative’s house first, where 2 other dogs were in residence. They were not present at the time. My weak little pup, surrounded by strangers, wobbled around for a few minutes, sniffing, then, with both ends sore, tottered over to the corner and peed on the male dog’s bed.

    • peteike

      ha, very cute, looking healthy and ready for the wkend. Good on you for giving him a better life and of course he peed. No matter how weak, that dominance game is always there. That or just not house trained

  • Sam

    Chip Kelly reminds us to avoid using the phrase “war room” to describe the process of selecting grown men to throw and catch a football for a living: “First off, I don’t think using war room is real appropriate. We had Sergeant Jones here today and it brings things back to reality. We’re picking players in the NFL Draft.”

  • Andy124

    Longest 70 minutes of the day starting now.

  • G_WallyHunter

    so if there’s a trade up for Manziel by the Eagles, what will everyone be breaking in their immediate arm’s reach?

    • Andy124

      tray table and house phone, because 1 just isn’t enough

      • G_WallyHunter

        That’s a good point, it’s more of a progressive thing, each thing you break it gets a little more violent. I’m probably looking at the beer glass in front of me, the TV remote, and possible the coffee table as well

    • Rambler

      If that scenario goes down, I definitely will be pretty bothered. Thankfully I will be outside grilling here in AZ, so I probably won’t be able to harm too much in the backyard. Just maybe myself next to the hot grill.

      • G_WallyHunter

        ya maybe push the grill over like a domino with the meat on it, should suffice to suppress the anger

        • Rambler

          I refuse to harm any innocent and delicious meat. Will find something else to toss.

          • G_WallyHunter

            any other should do as long as it’s not your own

    • Warhound

      My no domestic violence pledge?

      • Andy124

        You win. Or is it lose?

  • Amar

    Upvote if you are praying for Anthony Barr to Eagles…(I know its a long shot)

    • G_WallyHunter

      at 22? damn, that’d be fantastic

      • Amar

        I’m hoping for a QB frenzy the way it happened a couple of years ago. Bortles, Manziel, Bridgewather gone in the top 12 and the teams start to get restless….

  • anon

    Why do they have cooks standing next to clowney? Boy meets man.

    • oreofestar

      alphebetical haha he looks so small

      • anon

        Probably reminding chip why Cook’s not getting picked by us. I think we play texas this year…

  • mksp

    I wonder what an Andy Reid Eagles draft would look like.

    Probably:

    1) Jason Verrett
    2) Carl Bradford
    3) Dakota Dozier
    4) Kevin Norwood
    5) Lamin Barrow
    7) James White

    • Rambler

      I am too lazy to look… did any of them go to BYU?

      • mksp

        No, just all physically lacking in some way.

    • http://www.corcommunity.com/ theycallmerob

      KVN in the 1st

  • Andy124

    Is it just me, or does Manziel look like a human version of the robot devil?

    http://grantmullen.com.au/wp-content/uploads/Fan_Art__Robot_Devil_by_dover19.jpg

    • wohg

      Awesome.

  • scrapplejoe

    May the hugging by the Commish commece!

  • scrapplejoe

    Happy Steve Young is not around for this draft…

  • anon

    10 minutes per pick? How long does it take to say Clowney!!

    • oreofestar

      oh you know they trying to get out of that pick hard

      • anon

        yeah it’s pretty clear now — they were asking way too much.

        • oreofestar

          If a team will give I think they will settle for a 2nd this year and next year’s 2015

          • anon

            Two ones and a 2? Doesn’t seem likely. Clowney must be getting nervous.

          • oreofestar

            We’ll see

          • anon

            They couldn’t trade that pick — 10 minutes and they couldn’t trade that pick.

    • Andy124

      Ok, time’s up. Next team. You only get 1 minute when you pick first. new rule.

    • Andy124

      ding ding ding. they should have hired you and saved some time.

  • scrapplejoe

    Hoping for Pryor or Ha Ha

  • oreofestar

    No trade…let’s see

  • oreofestar

    Yep….Jadaveon… okay Rams maximize the RG3 heist and go down

  • George

    clowney

  • Andy124

    i think he’ll be great in the 3-4

    • George

      he’d be great in ANY defense

    • Andy124

      best pass rusher in the nil in 2015/16

  • anon

    I hope going first ruins him and we get to grab him in a couple of years.

  • Eagles1018

    Wow I can’t belive the Texans took Clowney

  • willissez

    Good for him, always a cool moment with the first pick. Now let’s get down to business.

  • George

    I hate this Johnny football, Johnny football,Johnny football. smh

    • willissez

      I might be in the minority but I don’t want him in Dallas, why take the risk that he turns into something special?

  • oreofestar

    Interesting Rams did not trade out

  • Hurricane

    My gawd…I’m going to have that stinking I’m the Man song in my head….oh well…guess it’s better than that damn happy song…

    • Andy124

      that’s one of the walk out songs too. i forget for who

      • http://www.twitter.com/ElJefedor Jeffrey Thomas III

        Mack and Robinson.

        • Andy124

          obliged

  • Glenn

    I wouldn’t trade up for anyone. I like our position at 22. And I am not willing to give up any of our other draft picks, other than our 7th rounder. We will get either Barr, Clinton-Dix, Lee, Cooks, or Fuller. Cant beat that!

  • Jerry Pomroy

    So far as predicted…

    • oreofestar

      Here comes DA SHOW lets see what ya do JAX

  • oreofestar

    Okay Jags select Manziel so we do not have to hear his name anymore…

    • Will

      You don’t like the drama?

      • oreofestar

        not really I do not know why I am nervous for other teams picks that is why I am watching on NFL network lot less Manziel talk there

        • George

          dont have nfln smh

          • Will

            its on ESPN

          • George

            ik but espn coverage isnt as good…

  • willissez

    Jax gotta go with Watkins right?

    • oreofestar

      Manziel, Watkins, Mack, Trade all in play

  • PaoliBulldog

    Draft begins at 8. At 8:30, two picks in. Yawn….

    • Eagles1018

      Really…it’s annoying

      • oreofestar

        Eagle won’t be picking for another 2 hours so get a chair out

        • oreofestar

          unless we trade

        • PaoliBulldog

          Armchair, crawfish & Famous Grouse. I’ll be OK.

    • Jerry Pomroy

      Wonder if Goodell needed a potty break already.

  • Andy124

    Time to abandon twitter. Schefter spoiling sht.

    • PaoliBulldog

      Yeah, I get no big kick out of knowing the pick 45 seconds early.

  • Tautalatasi Jr.

    Wow Blake Bortles

  • oreofestar

    Blake Bortles…..

    • RIP illa

      I don’t understand the love for this guy. Oh well…Good luck to him

      • Andy124

        size, toughness, intangibles, good enough arm, good accuracy

        • RIP illa

          See I’m not as sure about the arm and accuracy as much as the other attributes. He’s way green tho. Maybe that means just easier to mold.

      • anon

        Saw the look on his face and on Johny football’s face.

        • Jerry Pomroy

          All about size

          • Andy124

            twss

          • Jerry Pomroy

            Lol!

  • Andy124

    Makes me feel better about PSU losing to him this year. :)

  • Jerry Pomroy

    Blake for JAX and the 1st QB

  • Will

    Now let the QB rush began! Hopefully some WR, LB and S will fall down to 22…

  • Glenn

    Mayock called it right before the pick. LOL.

    • oreofestar

      tipped possibly remember

      • Glenn

        tipped likely…it is the nil network…

  • Eagles1018

    Smart move for Jax. Johnny wasn’t going up here. Sorry it’s a lot of hype. He doesn’t suck but you have more potential I think with Bortles

  • Will

    Watch the Bills get Watkins

    • oreofestar

      yep…I think

  • Jerry Pomroy

    And Browns trade pick so QBs will be falling

  • oreofestar

    Bills here….

  • Tautalatasi Jr.

    Cleveland traded to the Bills? wow that Kevin Costner is sure a savy GM

  • willissez

    holy crap on the haul cleveland got

  • oreofestar

    Dang Bills gave up quite a bit for Sammy…

  • Eagles1018

    Dammit I was kinda leaning towards Sammy….

  • oreofestar

    Hell the Browns might have 2 top 10 picks next year

  • Jerry Pomroy

    So Browns will be looking to take QB with 26 or possibly moving up depending on how board falls. I think they may have wanted Bortles & since he went ahead of them, they traded the pick.

  • oreofestar

    Bills really wanted Sammy and I bet them pesky Lions were trying to do stuff

  • Andy124

    did they say what buffalo paid?

    • oreofestar

      next year’s 1 and 4

      • Andy124

        thank you.

        • oreofestar

          yeah real expensive to move up 5 spots

          • willissez

            crazy cost, but watkins would not have been there at 9 so i guess they loved him

      • Jerry Pomroy

        So they basically gave up next year’s first for two this year, with the 4th being the kicker.

  • oreofestar

    I believe this is where Mike Evans dreams are crushed

    • oreofestar

      Damn now I still have to hold on to my dumb dreams

  • Eagles1018

    Manziel to Oakland. Watch….

    • anon

      Nope

      • Eagles1018

        Damn. Okay so Minnesota and the Cowboys for Johnny F.

        • oreofestar

          I wanna say Minny but I have a feeling they pass…

    • Will

      Nope hahha still on the board

  • anon

    As Khalil Mack falls are we making calls?

    • willissez

      nope :)

  • RIP illa

    Poor Mack…Sorry kid.

  • Scott J

    We need a run on QBs!

  • imnotsorryisaidthat

    stay at 22 and be patient

  • oreofestar

    All about Manziel if he falls…we are not going to stop hearing about it…

    • G_WallyHunter

      No way he does it at 22 jesus if he fell there and it happened that’d be a little ridiculous

      • oreofestar

        I wanna believe there is a trade

  • oreofestar

    Johnny is getting real nervous you can see it

  • Scott J

    It’s become the Johnny Football watch.

    • oreofestar

      yep if he gets past 9 look out below!!!

  • Andy124

    Wow. This is a-m-a-z-i-n-g RT @wingoz Pick after the Raiders has been money in the first round the last 10 years. pic.twitter.com/1pYu7MSxuX— Rachel Nichols (@Rachel__Nichols) May 9, 2014

    • Scott J

      I have good new and bad news. The good news is, you got drafted 5th. The bad news is, you’re going to the Raiders.

  • JAMIN67

    So far, so good…unless you’re a Jaguars fan. Bwahahahahaha

    • oreofestar

      nah I think it was a decent pick they obviously liked him

      • JAMIN67

        I guess anything is an upgrade over Gabbert.

  • Jerry Pomroy

    So is this Mathews to ATL??

    • oreofestar

      I mean it has to be what if they took Evans lol

    • Amar

      Yes Jake Matthews

  • Will

    We need a run on QBs and OL

  • oreofestar

    Outside of Bortles this draft has been pretty predictable so…hmmmm

    • PaoliBulldog

      And even that wasn’t a huge shock. A lot of mocks had him first QB drafted.

      • oreofestar

        Oh I was not like SHOCKED but it was a bit surprising

  • Jerry Pomroy

    So we’ve got MIN & CLE up next… Johnny Football? Maybe two QBs in a row?

    • anon

      If not minny, i don’t think CLE, maybe Buccs but i doubt it.

      • oreofestar

        yeah I have a feeling he is falling hard

        • PaoliBulldog

          As long as he falls to Jerrah.

          • JAMIN67

            God, I would love that.

    • oreofestar

      yeah if Browns love Bridgewater they pull a power move by going down and then getting their guy and some juicy picks

      • JAMIN67

        Tampa is gonna go Mike Evans I think

  • Scott J

    This will be Evans or QB

  • Javi Echie

    Ok so Atlanta didn’t take Barr..PLEASE let him slide far enough for us to trade up

  • oreofestar

    Doubt it will happen but what if Manziel goes here….wow

    • Will

      I was a fan of that before Nick Foles did what he did last year, but not anymore

  • Amar

    Mike Evans to Tampa

    • oreofestar

      yeah that would make the most sense

      • Amar

        Inside news.

    • PaoliBulldog

      That’s who I’d pick.

  • oreofestar

    OKay guys the Mike Evans dream dies here

    • Jerry Pomroy

      Well you could jump onto the pirate ship bandwagon… lol.

      • oreofestar

        Already ordered my Evans jersey lol :P well the wait is gonna be long at least I do not have to worry about him

  • Scott J

    Damn it!

  • Jerry Pomroy

    Damn…Mathews & Evans go before Johnny. That’s humbling.

  • anon

    Mike Evans is gone — I’m turning in for the night (not really but, seriously).

  • oreofestar

    Maybe we get 3 straight Aggies cuz Browns are picking 8

  • Andy124

    For those following on twitter and seeing who gets picked before the pick is in, some of us logged off twitter because it’s more fun to see them on tv. please don’t post the picks here before they’re in. muchos gracias.

    • Amar

      Do list all other social media, websites you want not revealing the picks.

      • willissez

        just wait until it’s announced on tv please

      • Andy124

        I’m not on other places. I’m here and watching tv and asking politely.

        • Amar

          I’m not watching it on TV

    • oreofestar

      I am only looking at Ian cuz he is posting real time everyone else I am not following then I got me Geagle feed :)

  • PaoliBulldog

    I hope nobody is surprised that Evans was drafted this high.

    • oreofestar

      nah it was expected

  • Jerry Pomroy

    Hmm, Minny trades their pick…??

  • JAMIN67

    Not a shocker. Lotta good WR’s left. I just don’t want to get a run on them. Let’s hope Minny goes QB.

    • Will

      I think San Fran might make a move for ODB

      • PaoliBulldog

        They’ve got the ammunition to do that.

  • PaoliBulldog

    I’d be inclined to post bogus Twitter announcements. Just for lulz.

  • oreofestar

    It is Bridgewater or Manziel lets see

    • Will

      Hmmm Manziel

  • anon

    Someone tell the Browns this isn’t first pick

    • Andy124

      lol

    • RIP illa

      Someone tell them that this isn’t draft day and Kevin Costner doesn’t work for them

    • JAMIN67

      What…the….f…..

  • JAMIN67

    C’mon Teddyyyyyy, please…..

  • oreofestar

    I heard a J and then BOOM

  • willissez

    whhhooooaaaaa….

  • Will

    Wow, I don’t think they needed to trade

    • oreofestar

      maybe the Rams or Titans or somebody was trying to make move up and they had to block them

      • Will

        Good Point. I think everyone was thinking QB

      • knighn

        Or the Vikings acted like that what was happening. Only really gave up their 5th. No biggy.

      • Jerry Pomroy

        Yeah but only a 5th. Maybe MIN fleeced Ray Farmer into believing someone else offered a 6th.

  • Scott J

    gotta be a QB now!

  • Jerry Pomroy

    Hmm, did the Browns really need to trade to get Gilbert? They only gave up a 5th, so it’s not like MIN wanted him.

  • RIP illa

    Hayden and Gilbert, not too bad. Especially if Joe assumes the role of the mentor. I woulda thought that they could have sat pat, or even traded back one or two spots for him. But maybe oreo is right.

  • JAMIN67

    So Cleveland trades back up to nab the 3rd best corner in the draft. Factory of Sadness. LOL

    • oreofestar

      3rd best is only your opinion most would disagree

      • JAMIN67

        Absolutely true. Only time will tell.

    • anon

      Wait until next year they have 2 firsts…

      • oreofestar

        exactly I think they played it well

  • willissez

    mosely to minn?

    • willissez

      should qualify that i’m guessing, not on twitter or anything

  • Eagles1018

    Pls no Barr minnesota

    • Jerry Pomroy

      They run 4-3 so it seems odd to take Barr. Would be another square peg and round hole deal like Dion Jordan.

    • RIP illa

      Dammit…you jinxed us!!! LOL

      • Andy124

        Need someone to blame. New-ish guy makes a good target. Let’s ostracize him. :)

  • Jerry Pomroy

    Let’s get a run on CBs, QBs & WRs…I want Barr!

    • Will

      I can get with that

  • oreofestar

    Okay not that we trade up but we are getting into that range where trading up will not cost us a lot lets hope Barr lasts another 7 or so spots

  • Token

    Johnny slipping is scaring the hell out of me. Don’t be stupid chip.

    • Javi Echie

      Token I been saying the same thing but I really hope he slips to 16 and the cowgirls take him

  • oreofestar

    Barr…crap

  • Tautalatasi Jr.

    that sucks

  • JAMIN67

    Gotta be a Defensive pick here, I would think. Another CB maybe? Or Donald?

  • Andy124

    sad face

  • Aussie Eagle

    VIKES??? Where does he fit in there?

    • oreofestar

      no where really they are going Dion here

    • Dave Alcock

      Dude where in oz are you?

      • Aussie Eagle

        I’m in Sydney

        • Dave Alcock

          Cool, in melbourne. Good to see other Aussies that are passionate about the birds

    • Javi Echie

      Makes no sense I thought Aaron Donald or Dennard or one of the other top CBs would of been the choice

      • Javi Echie

        Now I hope we trade back and land Latimer at this point

        • oreofestar

          his draft as lacked surprises man….who the hell is gonna fall also 11 picks and only 2 trades and one of them was a spot

          • Aussie Eagle

            CJ, Fuller, Lee or trade back…. if we can find a trade partner (I’m assuming ODB will be gone – Jets most likely)

          • oreofestar

            Don’t even want Lee at least not at 22

          • Andy124

            We’ve been making Maclin comparisons for him here. But I saw some Reggie Wayne comparisons today. Hope springs.

          • Javi Echie

            Yea man I really see the players falling into the places they were supposed to…maybe Mosely or Fuller drop to us

          • Aussie Eagle

            Haha is still there…

          • Javi Echie

            I don’t think he’ll get passed the packers

          • oreofestar

            same while I would not trade up for him but if the Eagles love him and want to jump 2 spots I am down…Personally I am in trade back mode good names went off the board quick

          • Javi Echie

            I’m an in complete trade back mode as well bro

  • Jerry Pomroy

    I’m pissed! Marcus Smith needs to be an Eagle!

  • Token

    Ugh that blows. Well looks like they will sit and take Lee. Just please no Johnny.

  • Andy124

    well, as i hoped, at least he didn’t even get close.

  • oreofestar

    Thank you Detroit making it quick

  • oreofestar

    Ebron…snap very interesting

    • RIP illa

      Great pick for them. They’ve been needing a TE for the longest and now they got a playmaker at the position.

      • oreofestar

        Yeah and Gil was gone

    • PaoliBulldog

      Would have loved him to Philadelphia but it was clear he was a top ten talent.

  • anon

    Ebron gone, da** — really wanted him.

  • JAMIN67

    Good pick by Detroit.

  • oreofestar

    Draft is not going great we are not getting the run on Qbs, Barr is gone….damn

    • Amar

      My thoughts..

    • NCBiRDMann22

      Barr has so much to learn

      • oreofestar

        He is a bit soft I think he is gonna get pounded at DE by NFL tackles

        • Token

          Soft? No way. Just needs to get stronger

  • Jerry Pomroy

    Twin towers in Detroit with Megatron & Ebron. Stafford doesn’t evolve now, he’s not the real deal.

  • anon

    I’m seeing OL in the first round

  • andy

    slide haha, slide

    • oreofestar

      true dat

    • willissez

      yea starting to feel like that’s a possibility

      • Warhound

        As long as it’s not Manziel.

    • Token

      Y so we can pick him? Nightmare

      • andy

        Nightmare? We have a glaring hole at safety and there is no depth at the position. How many times could we not get off the field in 3rd and long situations? Malcolm Jenkins is not the answer by himself

        • anon

          I think our depth isn’t that bad, we don’t have a star, but i can live with our starters.

          • andy

            Who is the other starter? Wolff? Allen?

  • JAMIN67

    Next 2 picks will be interesting. Could Tennessee go QB with Locker there?

    • oreofestar

      would be interesting

      • JAMIN67

        They didn’t pick up his option…so….maybe…

        • anon

          Probably thinking they can get a QB in rd two way things are shaping up.

  • Amar

    No Johnny Football in top 10 !

  • Jerry Pomroy

    Well I’m getting close to trade back mode.

    • oreofestar

      yeah they taking everybody….hope a team jumps Dallas for Manziel I just do not want him to slide and I think Jones has got a little sense not to draft him and I do not want him in PHI

    • Average__Joseph

      I went there when Evans and Barr were chosen.

    • knighn

      You are all slow. I was there a long time before the draft.

  • anon

    Schefty said browns were trying to trade up right now — no dice.

    • oreofestar

      interesting

      • oreofestar

        they might take that Bills 1 right now and turn it into Manziel

  • oreofestar

    Dang we have gotten to the where will Manziel land point

  • Jerry Pomroy

    Gotta think that if Lewan isn’t the pick here to TEN than that’s where NYG may go.

    • oreofestar

      I am thinking Martin, maybe Donals I think they will trade down actually

      • Jerry Pomroy

        I dunno man. They need to keep Eli upright and healthy. Mosely has an outside shot here too as a 4-3 Mike LB.

    • Jerry Pomroy

      Well there goes that. Is Martin the NYG pick then? Seems like a Coughlin type.

  • Tautalatasi Jr.

    Yup I’m 11 for 11 so far, my mock is going exactly as planned :p

  • Token

    Chip is gonna trade up for Johnny. This team lives for headlines. Ugh.

    • oreofestar

      stop Jeez…it hurts because I am worried he does it

    • Will

      nah, we are gonna trade up for ODB or HAHA

      • Token

        Odb is gone and haha isn’t very good. Why do ppl think they value safety?

  • Scott J

    Giants could take a WR.

    • knighn

      They need a S.

      • oreofestar

        not really ODB is a wildcard but I would expect Martin maybe Donals

        • anon

          They could take ODB, Lee, etc. I don’t think they need secondary, I think it’s likely they take OL.

      • willissez

        they need a everything

    • Neanderthal

      Martin

  • knighn

    Whoah. Half Way There…

    • Neanderthal

      Love this new ten minute picks

    • knighn

      Whoooah, livin on a prayer

  • Amar

    NY nooooooo……

    • anon

      ODB? Don’t tease.

      • oreofestar

        he will never make it to 22 anyway

  • Scott J

    I wonder if SF will make a move soon?

  • oreofestar

    ODB…

  • Aussie Eagle

    Noooooooo

  • anon

    ODB is gone, damn, damn damn!!

    • knighn

      Damn. ODB better know how to jump; Eli misses high.

  • Will

    Sigh!

  • andy

    ODB is good, but overrated. Stop overly focusing on combine numbers. Lee much better

    • Neanderthal

      Agree. Give me Lee

    • Aussie Eagle

      I like Lee but I like ODB’s tape more

    • anon

      Jarvis Landry

  • anon

    Manziel should sue ESPN for intentional infliction of emotional harm.

  • JAMIN67

    Ugh. Good pick by Big Blue. I just want Manziel to come of the damn board.

    • oreofestar

      me too because I do not trust Chip if he is there at 22 cuz if we pick him I am gonna….

      • JAMIN67

        Me too. I hope Jerrah is jumping up and down right now saying “C’mon Johnnnnny”

  • oreofestar

    CJ,Fuller,Haha somebody has got to fall

    • Aussie Eagle

      we need a run on QB’s, although that would need some teams to trade up ahead of us

      • anon

        not gonna happen.

  • willissez

    booooooooooooooooooooo

  • Amar

    The only way ODB is catching balls from Eli if he play DB for the rest of the NFC east.

    • JAMIN67

      LOL

  • oreofestar

    So much for an unpredictable draft I say this draft has been pretty predictable so far

    • PaoliBulldog

      The Raiders screwed things up by not making an obviously stupid pick.

  • Jerry Pomroy

    I think you’ll start to see a little run on WRs coming soon. PIT, BAL, NYJ, GB…

    • anon

      agree

      • oreofestar

        good Haha, Fuller, CJ can fall

    • Amar

      Why not the Jets ? Who do they have ?

      • Jerry Pomroy

        I listed the Jets (NYJ)…?

      • Aussie Eagle

        I think Jets will take a good long look at Cooks/Lee

  • oreofestar

    Just saw Boys on the phone…trade up? Donald?

  • RIP illa

    :-( Really hope this doesn’t mean we’re gonna draft Lee. Trade down please!!!

    • anon

      he might be gone — think we might take OL, or safety.

      • RIP illa

        Hate picking OLs in the 1st unless it’s a top tier Tackle. Was not totally thrilled with the Lane Johnson pick cuz he’s “developmental”, but I could understand it based on the upside and his freakish athleticism. As far as safety, As long as it’s not Pryor. Think he’s been over hyped from the start. But who really knows!

  • NCBiRDMann22

    Y’all need to calm down on ODB…he is way over ratted

  • http://www.corcommunity.com/ theycallmerob

    RIP, ODB

  • Scott J

    Clinton-Dix, Shazier, Lee, Cooks, Mosley, Dennard, Fuller still on the board.

    • Amar

      I feel much better now

    • anon

      think Mosley could happen

    • oreofestar

      Cooks can not get past Jets IMO, Shazier, Lee, not at 22 would ot mind any of those DBs though

  • eaglefansocal

    Don’t worry, to early for ODB. Not much different from Lee.

  • Eagles1018

    Pls no Manziel…I’m shaking right now

    • Hurricane

      Jerry will calm those shakes

      • Aussie Eagle

        I don’t see how they could go Johnny with so much guaranteed money invested in Romo

        • tabu34

          That’s what makes it so exciting that it might happen

        • anon

          Jerseys will pay for it

        • oreofestar

          yeah I want to believe even he is not that stupid but ya never know…

  • knighn

    Johnny is going in round 2.

    • oreofestar

      nah somebody has to save him at the top of the 2nd and trade up

      • knighn

        Fine if they trade up with us. And give up a lot in the process.

  • Amar

    Giants have gaping holes on their OL, DL and LB core. And they pick a WR in the deepest WR draft. Gotta hand it to them

    • PaoliBulldog

      True – and yet a minute before the announcement I told my son the Vajayjays were taking ODB.

      • Amar

        huh ?

  • Burberry Manning

    Damn odb to da gmen : (

  • Amar

    Lucky Rams

  • oreofestar

    Stack dat D Line St.Louis

  • Neanderthal

    Dang nfc west got some nasty d

    • Aussie Eagle

      and we play them all this year…..

  • Amar

    Hopefully Chi is predictable and takes Pryor

  • PaoliBulldog

    Aaron Donald looks like an oversized Michael Smith (of ESPN).

  • Andy124

    Glad he won’t be in dallas.

  • oreofestar

    Oh and any Haha people I think he goes here unless Bears love Pryor or a corner

  • Scott J

    safety or corner will be picked here.

  • Scott J

    There are some nice players left on the board.

    • oreofestar

      yeah and some nice teams who will steal ‘em

      • knighn

        Man up. There’s no crying in football!

        • oreofestar

          I ain’t crying we will see

  • oreofestar

    That Rams D Line is nearly the equivalent of the DLINE LOB

  • Bob

    Fuller the pick

  • Jerry Pomroy

    I think Bears might be going with Ealy or Pryor here.

    • anon

      Forgot about Ealy, he’s one of my first round picks

    • oreofestar

      Ealy would be a pretty bad pick IMO

      • Jerry Pomroy

        Why, they need to replace Peppers don’t they? I haven’t kept a close eye on them, but know their D sucked.

        • oreofestar

          They got Allen and Houston

  • oreofestar

    I am a bit scared bout Manziel but I want to believe that Chip is not that crazy…

    • Warhound

      Plz No!

    • Andy124

      Flip side: Maziel drops to 22, Eagles don’t take him, the few remaining voices of unreason and irrational fear mongers get a little quieter.

    • Aussie Eagle

      Look at all the QB moves we’ve made… Barkley, Butt Fumble and letting Vick walk… We don’t need a QB in the Johnny mold! Right?!

  • Amar

    Damn…Time to trade down.

  • oreofestar

    Yep Fuller

  • anon

    Fuller to Bears — who cares?

    • oreofestar

      I don’t I thought he would go the next pick but look it mean Haha can fall more

  • Amar

    No RBs in the top 15, when was the last time that happened.

    • Aussie Eagle

      no RBs in first round last year

    • Warhound

      I think few (or no) RBs in 1st round is becoming the norm.

  • Bob

    Ryan Shazier to Pitt

    • oreofestar

      would like that

    • anon

      Where are you getting your info sir?

    • knighn

      How’d you do that?!

  • Jay

    Ha-Ha and Mosley falling I like it

    • Token

      Can’t understand what people see in HaHa.

  • knighn

    We’re trading back. Watch.

    • Eagles1018

      Yup

  • Hanibal Luis

    Good, I didn’t want Fuller as a 1st pick.

  • oreofestar

    Dennard, Haha, Mosley on the board still some nice players

    • Don Mexico

      If the Cowboys would take johnny football and the other teams let Ha-Ha Clinton’s-Dick fall, that would really make my night.

  • JAMIN67

    I’m thinking Pryor here

  • NCBiRDMann22

    Jf here for sure

  • Javi Echie

    There’s goes Fuller. It’s looking like either Cooks or a trade down for us unless we shocked the world and take Latimer early

  • Jay

    Ha-Ha or Mosley here

    • anon

      Wouldn’t be surprised if it was a DB, just lost clark.

    • Jay

      I meant Pryor sorry

  • Amar

    I’m hoping Cowgals draft OL here

  • Hanibal Luis

    Cooks. Jets, don’t break my heart.

  • Stuart Philp

    I hope cowboys take manziel

  • Will

    Cowboys gonna take johnyy

  • JAMIN67

    Shazier

  • Jerry Pomroy

    Hmm, I have to think DAL goes Ealy here.

  • Aussie Eagle

    Cowboys need safety too don’t they?

  • Amar

    So far the STL Rams have Greg Robinson and Aaron Donald. The FO can set it on Autopick and go home now.

  • Token

    Please Dallas, take him off the board

  • Hanibal Luis

    I say DL to DAL.

    • Andy124

      Could be a good spot for Ealy

      • G_WallyHunter

        Mosley and dix make it to 22 who do u take

        • oreofestar

          me…dang I like Haha would trust Eagles cuz I am fine with either but I’d take Haha

        • Andy124

          dix

          • G_WallyHunter

            Ya jw damn this is gettin exciting

        • Andy124

          prefer trade back though

          • G_WallyHunter

            Ya would be great to trade back when a diff team wants to hop in and get one of the sliders

  • anon

    DAL trying to trade back

    • oreofestar

      yep

  • JAMIN67

    Please God…if Dallas takes Manziel…I promise not to cuss for like 2 days

  • PaoliBulldog

    Come on Jerrah….

  • oreofestar

    They won’t they have more control than that

  • George

    apparently its johnny or pryor

  • Token

    Not comparing their skill sets, but comparing their talent level….. HaHa is like a Brandon Merriweather coming out IMO. Why the hell is everyone so excited about him? Just because its a safety?

  • Aussie Eagle

    can’t be Johnny, he wasn’t on the phone just then

  • Eagles1018

    Oh no….

  • Stuart Philp

    Noooooooooooooo!

  • oreofestar

    Zack Martin solid pick safeties and Mosley keep sliding

  • Jay

    WOW didn’t even go defense

    • Andy124

      I’d typically say they needed to D, but I can’t fault trying to protect the QB, especially with his back issues. an unfortunately reasonable pick for them imo.

      • JAMIN67

        I know. Who is making the picks for Dallas this year, cause this is not like Jerry

  • Token

    Well, unless someone trades up, Johnny is gonna be a damn Eagle. If hes sitting there I see no way Chip can help himself.

    • Uncle Wonder

      Bite your tongue

  • Scott J

    6 picks left until 22. Thes eplayers are still on the board:

    Ha Ha Clinto Dix

    Pryor

    Lee

    Mosley

    Cooks

    Roby

    • Amar

      Dennard

      • Token

        Press man or nothing. Limited corner IMO.

    • anon

      Ealy, Jarvis Landry!!!

  • knighn

    Got to protect the Broke Back Cowboy.

  • NCBiRDMann22

    Birds may get johnny…?

  • oreofestar

    I almost feel bad for Johnny

  • anon

    Ok might as well stop talking about Johny man, think QBs are going second round or later.

  • Will

    haha and Pryor still on the board

    • Token

      Because they are 2nd round talents.

    • oreofestar

      hoping Pryor goes first

  • Scott J

    The browns will trade up and draft manziel.

  • Amar

    A sensible pick from Jerriah…not bad.

    • PaoliBulldog

      Unexpected!

  • Amar

    Eagles Trade up watch begins…

    • anon

      for whom?

    • knighn

      They’re trading back.

      • Token

        hard to trade back when nobody wants to trade up.

        • knighn

          Got to think teams are going to start wanting QBs.

    • JAMIN67

      Nah, I think they stand pat or trade back

    • Token

      Dont see a need. Lee will be there and they will likely take him. Pac-12 connection. Unless JF is still there, then ugh….

      • anon

        Could go to baltimore, or jets, — it’ll be interesting to see what MIAMI does.

  • Drew

    I actually cracked up at that pick

  • G_WallyHunter

    Jesus please if they take johnny, better not, pick D

  • Jerry Pomroy

    BAL looking at Mosely or Pryor? Maybe a WR?

    • Stuart Philp

      Im thinking Pryor

    • JAMIN67

      I’d say Pryor here

  • imnotsorryisaidthat

    this draft is comimg to the birds

  • Andy124

    Anybody else hoping we don’t take a 5’10″ WR?

    • Will

      Id rather have Dri Archer in a later round

    • oreofestar

      yep I do not want any other WR first round

    • Token

      Cooks and Jackson are different. However, its kinda dumb to dump a Jackson just to spend a 1st round pick on a Cooks isnt it? Ill take the bigger frame guy. Guy who can consistently move the chains.

      • Adam G

        Cooks is 11 pounds heavier than Desean was at the combine. Just saying his frame is a little bigger than Deseans.

    • Jerry Pomroy

      I don’t want Cooks.

      • Andy124

        What if he spelled his name Coocs?

        • Jerry Pomroy

          I don’t care what color he wears, I don’t want a little guy.

    • Jerry Pomroy

      I don’t give an ish about DJax. I don’t want a runt burner.

  • Drew

    If Chip picks Johnny, I wouldn’t be that upset. Chip Kelly knows what he’s doing and if he sees something in Manziel, he has to have him!

  • Aussie Eagle

    Come on Pryor

  • Bob

    CJ Mosley is the pick

    • JAMIN67

      Crap

    • oreofestar

      wait….you’re tipping picks bro

      • oreofestar

        please stop I wondered how you got the Shazier pick and I should have known please stop I want to watch on TV

    • Warhound

      Hey – let the commissioner on the tube tell us. Please.

  • Jay

    Mosley Here for BLT

    • Andy124

      Yeah, that’s nice. Let the rest of us find out when it’s announced on tv.

        i didn’t check.. just predicting

          And I’m a polka dot elephant with a trunk made out of silk.

          • Jay

            Pics or didn’t happen

        • Andy124

          Your name was showing up as Bob when I replied to you, who is clearly sharing sources other than his intuition. Sorry if it was a false accusation on my part. Blame disqus :)

  • Drew

    Haha > Pryor

  • Jay

    Damn it

  • JAMIN67

    Jets gotta go WR…I’m guessing Lee.

  • http://www.corcommunity.com/ theycallmerob

    c’mon cooks!

  • oreofestar

    Ok I think Cooks goes here maybe a QB trade up then Niners might get Dennard I can see Haha getting here but then GB

  • Jeff Asay

    Someone please pick Manziel! One, so they’ll stop talking about him. Two, so I don’t have to sweat Chipper getting his white whale and blowing up the offense.

  • oreofestar

    Cooks, Dennard, Pryor, Haha would not love any of them cept Haha but unless they go 1,2,3,4 one will be there for us

  • Jay

    Hoping Cooks here hope not Lee

    • oreofestar

      I don’t want Lee unless we trade down but I’d live I guess

      • Jay

        yeah I’d rather take a safety but nice to have options for us

    • JAMIN67

      I’m not a fan of Lee. Would rather trade down.

    • anon

      I hope both go

  • oreofestar

    hoping our Manziel some worked or people are scared of Cardinals because we get to trade down or at least a QB goes before 22

  • Jeff Asay

    Positive side, both safeties on the board. Wait, did I just jinx it?

    • Will

      GB might grab one

  • Aussie Eagle

    Trade with MIA or ARI for Haha

  • Aussie Eagle

    you would think Packers would be the only team that would look at Haha

    • oreofestar

      yeah if the Eagle want him they need to do some thing with ARZ give them your 4th and take their 5th

  • Uncle Wonder

    If JF slides to 22 hopefully sometimes trades up with us…I think thats the only way I will get my wish

  • Bob

    Would be hilarious if the Jets took Manziel… Would be a jet thing to do

  • Eagles1018

    Shut up mayock

  • oreofestar

    Mayock started the Eagles Johnny stuff Jeez….please I don’t wanna hear it

  • G_WallyHunter

    Well Mayock went and mentioned it as you all heard, damn

    • Andy124

      Didn’t hear it cause I’m on espn because i’m old and resist change and i’ve watched on espn since i was a pup.

      • G_WallyHunter

        Mayock said can you imagine the discussion chip kelly and the eagles are having about manziel

  • knighn

    Glad I’m not watching NFLN right now!!

  • oreofestar

    Kinda light on trades this year only 2

  • Will

    Come on Texans… trade us. You know you want manziel!

  • Tautalatasi Jr.

    wow calvin pryor

  • Aussie Eagle

    Pryor gone means we really need to get in front of GB now

    • Andy124

      pretty high on ha ha huh?

      • Aussie Eagle

        you noticed?

        • Andy124

          Noticed, with bonus points for alliteration.

          Sell me on him please. I’m neither for nor against. I just like to hear other people’s sell jobs.

          • Aussie Eagle

            He can play both spots, very rangy, can play single safety which opens up some creative blitzes ala Seahawks. Can cover slot/TE as well

          • Andy124

            I’ve seen him lay a little lumber too.

    • oreofestar

      or trade back

  • Eagles1018

    Pryor. Ok

  • anon

    That’s not surprising Rex taking pryor

  • oreofestar

    Jets took Pryor…interesting

  • Jerry Pomroy

    Didn’t see that coming. $hit that leaves Cooks on the board. Hopefully MIA or GB take him.

  • Will

    There goes Pryor, watch HAHA go to GB

    • oreofestar

      yep if they want him they need to call ARZ but I doubt they will I am for trading back anyway

      • Will

        Maybe AZ wants Johnny, but yeah Im good for trading back now that ODB and the LBs are gone

  • JAMIN67

    Damn, didn’t expect that

    • anon

      He’ll do well on Jets with his style of play. They need DBs

      • oreofestar

        I thought they needed a CB and WR more surprised they passed up on Dennard and Haha

      • JAMIN67

        I agree, it’s a great pick…just figured they’d go WR early

        • anon

          Me too, but it’s RR and it’s a WR deep draft. I thought they’d take cooks too but whatever.

  • Jay

    trade with miami…brandaon graham and 22nd for their first rounder and 6th..I can hope

  • Scott J

    Either Lee Cooks Latimer will be at 22. Maybe all 3.

    • Andy124

      Hoping Latimer is more of a trade back target

    • oreofestar

      Personally don’t want any at 22

  • oreofestar

    Bright side Cooks fans, Haha fans, and Dennard fans chances are 1-2 of them will be at 22 my thought is a nice slide back with Cleveland

    • EaglesFanInPhx

      really don’t want dennard

      • oreofestar

        Thinking the Niners have to start getting jumpy for hiim

    • Andy124

      I’m guessing dennard isn’t on our board.

      • oreofestar

        yeah probably have them on their second round board

        • Warhound

          ..

    • anon

      trade back

      • oreofestar

        yeah..probably but we will see

  • Javi Echie

    Really looking like if we stand pat.it’s gonna be Clinton-Dix or Brandin Cooks…please trade back and grab Latimer

    • Jeff Asay

      Just confusing as all get out if they go DJax 2.0 in Cooks.

      • knighn

        I think it might clear things up. More about personality than size.

      • Javi Echie

        Two completely different players cooks is bigger and is more like a Steve Smith type player instead of djax

  • Scott J

    Niners and Browns could move up soon.

  • Jay

    once again jets will have a top 10 defense and nothing on offense.

    • anon

      plenty of WRs left in this draft.

    • Jeff Asay

      They have a reputation to live down to

    • oreofestar

      in fairness look it is a deep class and only 3 wrs are gone so they can get a Matthews or Latimer guy in the 2nd would rather have Pryor/Latimer than lets say Cooks/Ward

  • Scott J

    I’m almost feel sorry for Johnny Futeball. Oh wait, no I don’t.

    • oreofestar

      I actually do…

      • Andy124

        I don’t.

        Tangent: If he was 4 inches taller he’d be long gone by now.

    • JAMIN67

      He;s kind of an ass, but still…this is like the biggest night of these kids lives…and to be sitting there on national TV…I feel for him

    • knighn

      Reminds me of a joke.
      A Water Truck crashes into a Truck full of vinegar.
      What sound does the collision make?

      Dooosh!

  • Jeff Asay

    Best OLB still on board? Worth it at 22?

    • oreofestar

      nope

    • Token

      Id be fine with Dee Ford.

      • Jerry Pomroy

        Not a LB, sorry brother.

        • Token

          Says who? Hes a 3-4 OLB prospect.

          • Jerry Pomroy

            Believe what you will.

          • Token

            You are denying hes a OLB? Have you been drinking?

          • Jerry Pomroy

            No dude. We’ve had this discussion a hundred times already and I’m tired of debating Dee Ford. He is not a LB in my eyes. DE yes, but not OLB in 3-4.

  • anon

    Could we be trying to do a Dion Jordan trade?

  • oreofestar

    I think Xavier

  • oreofestar

    James?!?!?!

  • anon

    #Reach again

  • Jay

    Is this a reach?

    • oreofestar

      they obviously like him more than Fi-Lo, Kouandijo and Moses so as far as they are concerned

  • Jeff Asay

    Holy cow! Another lineman…lotsa players to choose from not on the line.

  • JAMIN67

    James?? Huh?

  • Tautalatasi Jr.

    Miami just went BBA best bully available

  • oreofestar

    Saints gotta be Cooks or Dennard

    • anon

      Cooks, they just lost Sproles.

      • Andy124

        Makes a lot of sense to me

      • JAMIN67

        Cooks would make sense…but there was a rumor that Manziel was high on their list. Maybe? Or am I just doing that whole wishful thinkin’ thing :)

      • Token

        Trade a old nearly done Sproles who they were gonna cut anyway and then get younger speedster playmaker to replace his production. yea, sounds about right.

        • RIP illa

          Excellent evaluation

  • Uncle Wonder

    Run on OL this year

  • tabu34

    Who could NO want here?

    • Jeff Asay

      Cooks seems likely…unless they want the heir to Brees. A&M not too far a drive to NOLA

      • oreofestar

        That would sure be intersting and it would piss a lot of teams in the top of the 2nd off

  • Uncle Wonder

    Who does NO want?

    • oreofestar

      Dennard or Cooks don’t know

  • Eagles1018

    Saints trade up. CB or WR

  • RIP illa

    AZ trade??? Saints just stole Manziel from Chippa! LOL

    • Jeff Asay

      Manziel wouldn’t be a bad value there. Brees is like 37.?

      • Andy124

        35

      • anon

        still paying him way too much

  • oreofestar

    Looks like Haha is gonna be a Packer hope not, maybe teams are scared we take Johnny trade up

    • anon

      I think Lee is going to fall to us, i think we’re going to take him and beef him up. I’m going to be dissapointed but it is what it is.

  • Jay

    we know it’s not a safety here

  • Jeff Asay

    Saints aren’t picking a safety after getting Byrd

  • Jay

    Guessing Cooks..they lost lance moore and colston getting older

  • Mr. Wu

    Well NO will grab cooks…that means haha will ebd up in gb too prob….hello M Lee

  • Eagles1018

    It’s not a safety. They have Byrd and Viccaro. It’s a CB or a WR. It’s cooks, Dennard or Roby

  • Aussie Eagle

    Eagles obviously weren’t looking to trade up, would have been better for ARI to trade with us?

    • oreofestar

      I am thinking trade down unless they love Haha

  • Bob

    Think some people will be very happy with the saints pick

    • anon

      Just name names

      • Bob

        Say the pick?

        • anon

          yup. is it a DB?

          • Bobd

            Nah Andy 124 is right

          • Andy124

            I love it when that happens. Wish it was more common lol.

        • Andy124

          don;t listen to him

      • oreofestar

        watch it be Manziel lol

      • Andy124

        obviously cooks since so many of us were hoping it the eagles wouldn’t get him.

      • Warhound

        Shut up!

  • oreofestar

    more interesting Cards got a 3rd which means we may get similar

    • Jay

      if we can get a 3rd to move down i’d be happy

    • anon

      No one trying to trade with us, what’s the point if you want a QB they’rll still be there in RD 2.

  • Uncle Wonder

    Carolina needs to trade up with us for a receiver

    • oreofestar

      hope they just jump us push Haha down so if we can not get a trade down we have options

    • RIP illa

      They have been talking pretty seriously about how they don’t think WR is a 1st round priority. Who knows. They still need to protect Cam, get CBs and S, and still get Cam someone to throw to.

  • oreofestar

    HAHA or trade down…

  • Eagles1018

    Cooks gone. This is not turning out well

    • EaglesFanInPhx

      haha is the only player i want left….

      • oreofestar

        yeah if GB picks him I want out of this pick BAD!!!

      • PaoliBulldog

        GB looks like his spot. To me…

  • anon

    OK cooks gone, no sweat.

    • RIP illa

      I’m sweating cuz I don’t want Lee!!!

      • Token

        lol well prepare yourself.

        • RIP illa

          I have been. Part of the reason why I haven’t been posting as much lately.

  • Token

    Saints upgrade while stealing out 5th rounder in the process. lol. I just hope Sproles has a good year left.

    • Andy124

      and they spent a 1st and 3rd to get him.

      • RIP illa

        Resources well spent, while they still have Brees.

      • Token

        I wonder if the Saints will win another one before the Eagles win one?

        But to your point, Brees doesnt have 10 years left. Who cares about giving that up to get him a playmaker?

        • Andy124

          Wasn’t saying they made a mistake. Not at all. I said above I think he fits great there. I’m just saying it’s not like they ripped us off in any way shape or form. Would you rather have Cooks and a 5th in exchange for our 1st, 3rd and Sproles? I sure wouldn’t.

    • IAteLunchToday

      Didn’t they extend him? So at least a couple years, right?

  • Septhinox

    OMG Eagles will have either Dix or Dennard if not both to choose.

    • Uncle Wonder

      and they could possibly choose neither lol

    • oreofestar

      Doubt we take Dennard in the first although I would not be bothered

  • oreofestar

    maybe GB likes Lee or Jenkins

  • Scott J

    I bet Howie is working the phones! Trade down?

    • oreofestar

      Yeah only scenarios I see are Haha or trade down…well that is all I want but that Manziel kid is still there unfortuanetly

      • Septhinox

        I’d be pissed if the Eagles took Manziel.

        • oreofestar

          pissed would not begin to describe my feelings

  • Bob

    Man really hope Haha falls past GB

  • RIP illa

    I Like the combo of Stills and Cooks for NO. They still got Colston, but if they get a younger big body to replace him, for the future, they are pretty F’n dangerous going forward, into the future.

  • Andy124

    Gotta say, I think Cooks fits in NO better than he’d fit here.

    • oreofestar

      I agree

    • Stuart Philp

      Cooks would fit on any team, but yeah I can see what you’re saying

    • anon

      Think Carolina takes Lee to replace Roberts?

      • Andy124

        I can’t begin to guess what Carolina will do. If I were them I’d hope the best player on my board was a WR. Wouldn’t be surprised to see them take Latimer over Lee.

  • Eagles1018

    I’m so upset right now. I just feel it coming…….

    • JAMIN67

      Just do like I’m doing…keep repeating “this is not happening, this is not happening”

    • TNA

      I wonder what kind of offers Eagles are getting from Browns and Texans for #22.

      • oreofestar

        hmmmm maybe a 3rd/4th

  • Septhinox

    I know you guys don’t, but I really really want Dennard.

    • Token

      Id be surprised if hes on their board

      • Septhinox

        Why? Something I missed?

        • Token

          Not as big as they would like in addition to being a limited corner. Hes a press man guy. You wonder how he will do in the NFL. If he cant win at the line consistently it could get ugly. Just my opinion.

        • Andy124

          height and arm length

  • Token

    Im wondering how many people have seen HaHa play a snap…….

  • Will

    Kony or HaHa…

  • Bob

    Man if Haha goes here than Sheil might be right on with his pick

  • tabu34

    Someone is trying to make a move with GB I suppose. Who wants to jump us?

  • RIP illa

    Since I do believe that all the top tier, 1st rd, special WRs are all gone. I do not like the idea of drafting a WR in rd one (unless we can trade down and pick up a little more) after cutting “he who shall remain nameless” when we prolly coulda suffered through/with him for one more year.

    Early 3rd round pick too!

    • Adam G

      No its not, its 83

  • PhillySean

    “I love the kid!” :)

  • PaoliBulldog

    Love the move. Add a third rounder, step back six spots. And I get to stay up later, finish the crawfish and have a wee dram o’ Scotch.

    • Aussie Eagle

      Only 4 spots

      • BrettConnolly

        And technically, it’s more like three spots as far as their board goes, since they obviously were OK with passing on Johnny Manziel right there.

  • Uncle Wonder

    We should trade down again…Idk who wants to trade though…mayb San Fran

    • oreofestar

      suprised they have not jumped yet maybe they want to actually use their picks

      • Uncle Wonder

        No roster can take tht many picks…might as well use em

        • Warhound

          Maybe they trade for picks next year. ?

          • Uncle Wonder

            Maybe…whatever they can do…i remember during the AR days we wld always be flushed w compensatory picks…just ended up as trade fodder or got wasted on camp cuts

  • Will

    Deone Buccanon…. Dennard will be gone…

    • Jerry Pomroy

      Bucannon is considered a late 2nd and you wanna take him a full round early?

  • Pennguino

    WOW a 3rd? Fn NICE

  • Javi Echie

    Bullet dodged!!! …C’mon Cody Latimer!!

  • Token

    Is the 3rd for this year?

    • Adam

      yep

      • oreofestar

        perfection got 83

      • Token

        Geez Cleveland got desperate or something. Fleeced. Lee will prolly still be there at 26 for Eagles.

  • Uncle Wonder

    Lol, my mind is starting to work like first-pick.com…the trades on tht thing are so unrealistic tho

  • TNA

    I think Reid is thinking Lee here.

  • Pennguino

    MOve down and let Oakland get Bridgewater

    • knighn

      Do it!!

  • Adam

    Browns only gave up a 5th to move up early in the first but Howie gets a third to move back late in the 1st. Love it.

    • knighn

      That’s Howie Do!

  • CTAZPA

    Jacksonville needs a QB, a position that’s going fast.

    • George

      they got bortles 3rd…

  • oreofestar

    not bad Cleveland they got Glibert and Manziel an extra 1 and 4 next year too

  • Adam

    4 picks in the top 86? Hells yeah!!!

  • tabu34

    Chiefs trying to get out of their spot, or someone else desperate to move up?

  • JAMIN67

    Arizona could use a QB, and they pick 27…what are the odds we could pick up another 3rd?

    • Andy124

      For 1 spot? 0 lol

      • oreofestar

        no he is saying thatlike Houston or someone jumps ARZ

        • Andy124

          that would make sense.

        • JAMIN67

          Correct, if someone wants Bridgewater, we are in the perfect spot.

      • George

        if we start a bidding war… its possible

      • JAMIN67

        Hell, a 4th would work in this draft.

        • Warhound

          even a 5th

    • oreofestar

      That would be great…

    • andy

      0%

  • TNA

    Browns had two 3rd rounders. Eagles got their later 3rd rounder.

    • oreofestar

      stilll a 3rd rounder hell we can take Kirksey right there

  • RIP illa

    We need to get on the phones again and pit the Texans and Raiders against each other for the services of Bridgewater and/or Carr.

  • Token

    So Browns say Eagles wanted to trade back from the start. Hmmm, prolly not done then. May not make a 1st round pick. They may feel the 2nd round WRs are just as good as those left at 22-26

    • Septhinox

      Maybe trade back to early second and get more and take Cody Lattimer depending on how the board falls.

      • Token

        If they could trade back a little more and still get Robinson im good. But you really gotta nail these 2nd and 3rd round picks.

        • anon

          yeah i’d go all the way back to mid second round, who cares at this point.

  • Adam

    I’m the major minority but I still love Dee Ford in the 1st.. not gonna happen but still.

    • George

      meh

    • Token

      Dont get all the Ford hate at all. Certainly a better rusher then some of these bigger guys everyone drools over in the 2nd and 3rd rounds.

      • Adam

        Yep. I think Ford in the first and a WR in 2nd is better value than a WR in first and one of the other pass rushers later on.

    • PhillySean

      you were proven correct pretty quickly there!

      • Adam

        Welp

  • Drew

    So

  • Drew

    So, the big question, who’s it gonna be at 26?

    • oreofestar

      who cares we got a 3rd and Dennard will be gone…

    • Kev_H

      I think it’s Lee, the guy from Vanderbilt, or Latimore. One will be there.

    • JAMIN67

      I’m hoping someone jumps ahead of Arizona for Bridgewater or Carr and we trade back again

  • Aussie Eagle

    Haha classic

  • willissez

    hahaha high motor

  • anon

    wonder if someone will jump us for a WR? Dee ford gone.

  • Andy124

    typical reid

  • Jerry Pomroy

    Hahaha! I knew it. Andy got his speedballer. How predictable!

    • Jeff Asay

      Good as busted right now. Poor kid. He’s destined to blow out a knee or get stabbed (or shot) like Graham and McDougle.

    • knighn

      I hope he uses his “fastball” and “high motor” when he talks about him.

  • Stolo

    A defensive Lineman? That’s so unlike Andy Reid!!!

    • Don Mexico

      I’m surprised he didn’t find a way to trade up and do it.

    • Jeff Asay

      Lmao! Classic. Scarred Eagles fans know his number

  • Aussie Eagle

    Bengals will take Roby or Dennard most likely

  • Will

    26th trade back again to 30th with 49ers….

    • George

      for a 3rd, or a 4th??

      • oreofestar

        I’d do either in a heartbeat

        • George

          same

          • Warhound

            Probably a 4th.

    • Will

      That would be awesome

      • Jerry Pomroy

        So Will, you like Will’s idea? Sorry 3hrs of hysteria… lol.

    • Jerry Pomroy

      I’m there with you. But who would they want to trade up for?

  • oreofestar

    What an Andy pick

    • George

      What a motor lol

  • Stuart Philp

    High motor guy

  • eaglefansocal

    19 and 22 in third rd, great area for 2 pick or even another trade down to get another fourth round

  • Septhinox

    Lol ESPN ranks another Andy pick as Overvalued. Surprise, surprise…

  • Andy124

    they’ve got hali and [the other guy]. This is like Asante, DRC and Nnamdi.

    • George

      then theyll trade the best one for a 6th lol

  • Pennguino

    Manzel MILF alert. Jugs

  • oreofestar

    What I am thinking right now is maybe one more trade down or even if not getting Latimer or Robinson I think they fit well

  • RIP illa

    Did Smith’s contract get worked out? Was hoping another QB would go by way of KC, so we could be in a better position to trade back again.

    • anon

      nope

  • Eagles1018

    Johnny football holding it down in Cleveland for his boy Bron Bron lol

  • jpate

    Andy still looking for the next dwight freeney

  • tabu34

    Bengals were in a hurry. Wish more teams were.

    • oreofestar

      They are probably thrilled Dennard is still there

  • Andy124

    fastball for kc.

  • Septhinox

    So how about #26 and the new 3rd for Dion?

    • George

      seems a little rich

    • oreofestar

      no

    • Token

      bluh

    • anon

      3rd plus bamiro for dion

      • OldDocRoss

        Pfft, you, giving up on Bamiro so soon.

    • Pennguino

      I am in. Make it a 5th and Graham

  • Pennguino

    Make it a 5th and Graham

  • Will

    We might still get Lee at 26

    • Foles2Sproles

      I’m fine with that

  • Aussie Eagle

    SF will trade up with SD for Lee…..

    • anon

      think he’ll make it past cinci?

      • Aussie Eagle

        Cincy needed CB too bad

      • tabu34

        Yes. :P

  • oreofestar

    People saying Lee at 26 I want other people but I could live with Lee and that juicy 83rd pick

  • NCBiRDMann22

    I want Deone Buccannon

    • Stuart Philp

      At 54? All day

  • Eagles1018

    Dennard. Ok

  • PaoliBulldog

    My bad, thought Browns had #28. Eagles only gave up four spots and got a high third rounder. Even better.

    • Adam

      its a later 3rd round I believe

      • oreofestar

        it is 3 picks before our own 3rd rounder

  • CTAZPA

    SD – No trade… No Lee
    PHL – Trade again!

    • anon

      what’s the pick??

      • oreofestar

        gotta be Roby or Verrett

      • CTAZPA

        just hopin’

  • Bob

    Back on the clock

  • knighn

    ESPN just showed an ad for Maleficent. A little weird.

    • Uncle Wonder

      Disney flick…same umbrella

      • knighn

        Still. Weird.

  • Scott J

    We can get Lee or latimer if we want.

  • eagle fan dwn south

    They need to trade back again then trade that first to Mia for Dion Jordan

    • jpate

      Who would miami want with the 1st now?

  • Neanderthal

    Lee

  • oreofestar

    Yeah I think it Lee

  • oreofestar

    If Cleveland wants to get back in the 1st they can hit us up with 35 and 71

  • oreofestar

    yep Verrett

  • JAMIN67

    Verrett it is to SD. Can we swing another deal?

    • CTAZPA

      Yes! Trade again!

  • TNA

    Marquis Lee. Do it CK/Howie

  • Adam

    Lee and a third? Would be VERY happy with this first round

  • Amar

    Nix

    • Adam

      no ty

  • Jeff Asay

    C’mon Niners! Trade up and give a 4

  • Peteike

    They take lee cause maclin teaches him for yr then walks for new contract n lee steps in

  • Septhinox

    Another trade?

  • knighn

    Ah, no more trade backs. Looks like they’re going to have to pick here!

  • Eagles1018

    They’re not trading out. It’s Lee

  • Pennguino

    C’mon Texans. Trade up ahead of AZ for Teddy

  • Uncle Wonder

    Pick is in…oh well, excitement ends for the night

  • jpate

    here we go

  • Jeff Asay

    WR or OLB

  • Chip Kelly

    The last 2 drafts including this one have obviously been not controlled. Whoever we pick, I love our decision to trade back!

  • Amar

    Wow…really ?

  • Aussie Eagle

    ???

  • Jeff Asay

    Bit of a reach, yes?

  • Andy124

    In the first round. wow. ok. if they think he can be the edge rusher we need, i love it.

  • anon

    We had a first round grade on this guy??

  • Andy124

    can still get allen robinson in the 2nd hopefully

  • Uncle Wonder

    Well…there is the pass rusher

  • Eagles1018

    Marcus Smith? He had a 2nd rd grade…..

  • jpate

    ???

  • JAMIN67

    WOW

  • Uncle Wonder

    wow…reach?

  • Aussie Eagle

    Didn’t see that coming…

  • TNA

    ?????????

  • Septhinox

    What?

  • RIP illa

    LOL.

  • NCBiRDMann22

    Holly hell what a reach

  • jpate

    WTH?

  • Stuart Philp

    Reach :(

  • Aussie Eagle

    plenty of WR’s remaining

  • Andy124

    geagle gets his maaaarcus daaaarling lol

    • http://www.corcommunity.com/ theycallmerob

      awesome. Smith and a 3rd? he was pry next OLB off the board. I like it. Maybe Arob or Latimer in 2nd, or later WR.

      Glad we got the OLB. I like him

      • Jerry Pomroy

        You and me see eye to eye! I love this! I said if the Eagles got Smith and ARob I’d do the jig!

    • EagleDuck

      He was right more often than he deserved to be wasn’t he? RIP Geegs…

    • Jerry Pomroy

      He wasn’t the only one. Just the one with the catchy tag name. I love this pick. If we didn’t take him there he would’ve been gone very early in 2nd. Hoping that these pass rushers are gonna be there late 2nd is a childish dream. They’re a premium.

  • G_WallyHunter

    I guess I don’t hate the pick, take over for Trent, hey at least it was D

  • jpate

    How is this best player? This looks like a need pick

  • Matt

    Well that didn’t seem like a BPA approach

  • BleedGreenJames

    he cant possibly be the best guy on their board…

  • Septhinox

    Wow Tommy Lawlor had the Eagles moving back and taking Smith.

    http://igglesblitz.com/2014/04/case-marcus-smith/

  • CTAZPA

    So anticlimactic! We obviously couldn’t trade again…

  • Uncle Wonder

    They clda traded down, smh

    • G_WallyHunter

      Who says they had offers maybe they didn’t, the clock did go down to 40 seconds

      • Uncle Wonder

        True…I guess trading bk wasnt as big a deal w manziel gone…the run on OL pushed a few players down

  • PaoliBulldog

    Can’t help but think they could have traded back and still gotten Smith.

  • Tautalatasi Jr.

    andy making our picks??????

    • Andy124

      Shhh, I’m trying to stay incognito

      • OldDocRoss

        Nobody wants to be Incognito….

  • Eagles1018

    I had Smith on my board but was hoping he’d be a later like late 2nd rounder.

    Marcus Smith – OLB

    http://www.nfl.com/draft/2014/profiles/marcus-smith?id=2543725

    • PhillySean

      Thanks! reminded me of the kind of havoc Seth Joyner used to inflict on opposing QBs.

  • Neanderthal

    Really like Smith, but not BPA. NEED PICK

  • Kev_H

    Watching the draft would be more fun if John Travolta introduced the pix.

  • oreofestar

    *Sigh at least we got an extra 3rd

  • TNA

    Is being a former QB a prerequisite to being a Eagles 1st rd pick?

    • PhillySean

      a lot of pros were the best athlete on their teams and played QB at some level.

  • brent

    horrible!!

  • LittleJoe

    Huh?

  • http://www.twitter.com/ElJefedor Jeffrey Thomas III

    When I heard Marcus I just figured Goodell had mispronounced Marquise…

    • Uncle Wonder

      same

      • Warhound

        This

    • EagleDuck

      Same

  • JAMIN67

    Well, I did say earlier that I felt like we’d do something shocking. I think this qualifies. Hoped we would get this kid in the 2nd, but guess we figured he wouldn’t last.

  • NCBiRDMann22

  • Will

  • TNA

    http://www.phillymag.com/birds247/2014/04/15/draft-daily-louisvilles-marcus-smith-fit/
    “According to NFL.com, Smith is expected to be a third- or fourth-round
    pick. Given what we know about the Eagles’ defense and Smith’s skill
    set, he’s absolutely someone the team could target on Day 2 or 3 of the
    draft.”

  • NCBiRDMann22

    Seventh ranked pass rusher left…and 4-3 haha what a joke

  • Uncle Wonder

    Wow…reach

  • Jerry Pomroy

    I love this pick! I know many of you will be pissed. But I love it! Safest but most versatile OLB in the draft! I had him rated high second rd, so taking him at 26 isn’t a reach. This also tells me the Eagles like the bigger receivers that’ll be available in rd2. Gimme ARob, Mathews or Latimer & Van Noy tomorrow night & I won’t even need to watch Saturday (even though I will of course).

    • http://www.corcommunity.com/ theycallmerob

      yessir indeed

      only question was who they liked more, smith or at-at. answer is smith

      • Sum

        I liked Smith, but this is a certain overdraft

        • http://www.corcommunity.com/ theycallmerob

          by what standards? mock community? rankings are a joke.
          he was next best pass rusher available. might not have been around much longer. Would you be happy if they waited until the 5th to get one?

          • Sum

            Hey.. I said I liked Smith he is a high character guy, smart, versatile, good athlete with a lot of upside and he was a productive football player on top of that but I think they could’ve gotten him in the second.

          • anon

            you basically just said we reached for a pass rusher. it’s fine there’s no one there that wouldn’t have been a reach, i think they tried to trade but couldn’t, it’s not first pick.

    • All Things Bad@ss

      Totally agree. And if this dude buries QBs for years to come, who gives a damn where he was taken. We got our guy, now let’s hope he actually buries those QBs.

    • Average__Joseph

      Totally agree with you!

    • Andy124

      I’m pumped. I wanted an edge rusher, and I trust the Eagles to have selected the best one available. And he’s (so I’m told) a well rounded guy who can play day 1. I love trent, but I hope he’s a back up half way through training camp this year.

  • oreofestar

    I mean I would have loved him if we got him 15 picks later so I will not get upset but now I am in total round2 mode where good stuff has to happen

  • phillyphanlvnv

    Seems like the birds got exactly who they wanted. Big kid who looks like he should be a beast. Chip knows what he is doing. The players they wanted otherwise got selected already.

  • PaoliBulldog

    Bucannon shot into first round.

  • anon

    Buchannan gone…

    • oreofestar

      well I think he will end up being the bet safety in the class

  • knighn

    Like it better than Marquise Lee.

    Also looks like Tommy Lawlor saw this one coming… again:

    igglesblitz.com/2014/04/case-marcus-smith/

  • NCBiRDMann22

    For all you that said deone with our pick was bad…well Arizona just got an awesome safety that rose man will never know how to draft

  • Rj

    Tbh i wish we picked Manziel now. Smh

    • Andy124

      because you hate the eagles now? cause that’s the only reason to wish that

    • oreofestar

      easily would rather have Smith and a 3rd

      • EagleDuck

        And cancer.

  • oreofestar

    I think Eagles must have really loved this kid and knew they could get him later would hve loved to trade down again but if you could not I will live

  • Uncle Wonder

    Jimmie Ward still on the board too

  • Uncle Wonder

    KB made it to the 1st…above Lee

  • knighn

    OLB was most pressing need.
    I think, with this draft, the line between late 1st rounders and the entire 2nd round gets really blurry.

  • anon

    Kelvin gone — good.

  • knighn

    Yep. Guys expected to go earlier will drop and guys expected to go later will rise.

  • Will

    Deone or Benjamin …but no we get a 4-3 DE????

  • Token

    its a reach. 2nd round player.

    Just cant get very excited for the guy. But they badly needed a body at rusher so they backed themselves into a corner. They must see upside. Hope it works out.

    The plus side is they got a extra 3rd.

    Now what must they be thinking at WR? Trade up into early 2nd for Robinson? Do they like Jordan Matthews at their 2nd pick?

    • anon

      That’s the reality of it. It’ll be interesting what they do in the mid rounds.

    • Adam

      Need to see the 2nd round pick before I make a final judgement, but I agree. I’m gonna judge it by the combined value of the first two picks.

      • Token

        Think thats how im looking at it. At this point Lee could be a 2nd rounder. If they can snag Lee or Robinson in the 2nd somehow, then Ill take that package.

  • willissez

    talking myself into this pretty quickly. best OLB available, and a gift-wrapped 3rd from cleveland. get a physical wr in 2nd or 3rd and we’ll be dancing all weekend.

    • Eagles1018

      Latimer, A-Rob, Landry. Thank you.

  • Adam

    Don’t love it, don’t hate, but I’m glad we got that 3rd. Softens the blow.

  • Chip Kelly

    My kinda football player- versatile, team-oriented, and extremely hard worker. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vXiSWNTs9Pk

  • NCBiRDMann22

    Would have rather traded for Dion than waste the pick on a back up

    • eagle fan dwn south

      Me too

  • knighn

    Like it. Makes a lot more sense than a WR in a DEEP WR draft.

  • eagle fan dwn south

    I still want Dion Jordan

    • anon

      maybe next year

  • Aussie Eagle

    Chip talking to media now, Smith was highest on their board and they didn’t want to move back more and risk losing him

  • knighn

    Here’s the bold prediction now: Marcus Smith will end up a better pro than Dion Jordan (unless the Eagles can still somehow get a hold of him).

    • Adam

      Won’t take much.

  • Eagledelphia

    Wow I just can’t believe they took this guy in the first round I’m seeing another first round bust hopefully not though

    • Shane Brown

      Just watch the tape. If you watch the tape you will change your mind. He, more than any other pass rusher in this draft, is ready to step into a 3-4 olb role and become an impact player

  • Matt

    The more I think about it, what else besides trading down would have worked out? I think the drop off between Lee and Robinson or Matthew is smaller than the drop off from Marcus Smith to the next group of pass rushers. I definitely wanted to come out of the draft with Smith, it happened earlier than expected, but three picks tomorrow could turn this into a great draft.

    • knighn

      Exactamundo

  • Aussie Eagle

    Let’s see what Chip and Jerry can do with him, giving them the benefit of the doubt for now

  • Shane Brown

    Personally i think smith was the most underrated prospect in this draft. So im not upset about picking him here. Edge rushers are such a commodity that he likely would have gone somewhere in the next 5-10 picks anyways. Like ive said before, he is the most polished 3-4 olb in the draft. He has the ability to step in right away and challenge cole for a starting spot

    • JAMIN67

      I agree. Took him a little earlier than expected, that’s all.

  • JAMIN67

    The reality is we were going to go after this kid in the 2nd round anyway. If Chip saw something in him, hey…so be it. We got the extra 3rd, and if we pick up a quality WR in Round 2, I’m happy.

  • borntosuffer

    Chip and Howie must see the upside in this guy. The only thing that explains it, right?

    • BrettConnolly

      I totally agree. My girlfriend was asking me about draft picks and who I wanted. I told her I wasn’t excited for the Eagles to pick who I wanted. I was excited for them to pick who THEY wanted. She said she didn’t understand. I said, well, it’s kind of like at Christmas time. Sometimes when you are given a present, it actually feels awkward. Like you want to be excited for it, but you’re not because something tells you, they don’t really know you and you get the feeling like the present won’t fit you. I told her, Chip and Howie are kind of like the cool uncles who know you best and whose gift will absolutely be meant for you. I’m looking forward to Marcus Smith as a Philadelphia Eagle.

      • willissez

        Dude that’s deep. I love your analogy.

        • BrettConnolly

          Thank you. Chip has mentioned he thinks a player hits his prime at 27. They’re not just drafting a player for plug-and-play purposes. They’re also drafting who they’ll become. I will always think back to a quote Chip gave to a snarky reporter who asked whether his players would really “buy in” to a college coach. And Chip, so matter of fact, which we’ve all come to love, gave the simplest answer of all. “I think players want to win. If you can show them something to give them an edge, they’re going to adopt that.” Marcus Smith certainly looks like a freak. In his stance, his hands hang down by his knees, and he doesn’t tense up. He looks almost relaxed out there. There’s no stiffness, which says to me that he’s going to be rangy, physical and fearless.

    • southy

      There were probably only a handful of LBs on their board… They wanted a guy that can do everything. Smith is one of the few who is impressive doing things besides rushing the passer. Still wanted Dion but I’ll give the kid a chance.

  • RIP illa

    Remember how we all laughed at Dallas last year for their 1st rd pick, despite him being a good player??? It was on the basis that he could have been had later, albeit a consensus 3rd by most pundits. Well…we’re Dallas this year. Glad we got another pick at least.

    • oreofestar

      difference here is simple they legitmately could have had him at their 2nd pick there was little to no chancefor Smith to get to 54

      • JAMIN67

        This.

      • Adam

        Position value comes into play as well. OLB much more of premium position compared to center.

      • RIP illa

        Already touched on that when I acknowledged that Fredricks was a consensus 3rd, by most pundits. However, you don’t know that for sure about Smith. Kid has been mocked all over the place and there are still some comparable, if not better, edge rushers left. Would have loved to see another trade down, even if it was for a 4th, but obviously no takers.

        Edit: mocked and graded all over the place.

      • Aussie Eagle

        Are you 100% certain that we were the only team in the league that had him with a 1st round grade? Could Howie be 100% sure? I’m not going to judge it on where we could have got him because it’s all hearsay – let’s judge it in 2 seasons

        • oreofestar

          oh I saw mocks with him in the first plus Dan tweeted that a couple GMs would be shocked if Smith got to 35 so I bet a couple other GMS had first round grades

    • knighn

      Forget You! (Radio Edit)
      We never give anything close to a compliment to Monkey Funky (TV Edit) Dallas!

      • RIP illa

        You prolly should stop drinking right about now!

        • knighn

          Is the draft over yet? I don’t give up until it’s all over!!

    • southy

      Well, that. AND they passed on a top 5 pick that fell in Floyd.

  • Jerry Pomroy

    Per Tommy Lawlor – “LB Marcus Smith – Louisville…Maybe the most complete 3-4 OLB prospect in the draft. He can set the edge, rush the passer and cover. Looks natural at all 3.”

    Smith will be playing quickly and will most likely push Cole to backup before seasons end. Mark my words. He’s much better than many of you are giving him credit for.

  • oreofestar

    People saying this is a reach it is a reach by like 10 picks if even… I am sure they wanted to trade down again but if this was THEIR GUYand a team is calling for a trade at 35 or later than you may turn it down

  • Andy124

    Who would we have had on our board that was rated significantly higher than Marcus? None of the WR would have been significantly higher.

    • oreofestar

      I wanted Robinson or Latimer here but I am not upset AT ALL that we got Marcus AND A 3RD now if we picked him at 22 that would be different

      • Andy124

        I think there;s good odds that robinson is available at 54.

        • oreofestar

          yeah Lee, Latimer, Robinson, Matthews, Moncrief all here

  • oreofestar

    Ward now looks like the bottoms of the 1st and top of 2nd are very blurred

    • knighn

      Way to copy me from like 15 minutes earlier!

      • oreofestar

        sorry? Either didn’t see or didn’t remember whatever

        • knighn

          No worries. Was half joking and half self-promoting!

  • Matt

    I’m interested to see if they use that extra 3rd to trade up in the 2nd round. Possibly get Latimer if he drops to mid 2nd? Or just hold out for Matthews or A-Rob.

    • oreofestar

      personally I would like to stay at 54 and keep that 3rd but if we leave first 2 rounds with Smith and AROB I will be prety glad

      • Matt

        I think I agree with that. That extra 3rd will be valuable, and I like any of the 2nd tier receivers that would fall to us.

    • anon

      If we traded up in the second i’d be dissapointed, would have just tried a another trade back for a 5th or something like that .

      • Matt

        I think Latimer is very high on their board, so I could see it happening. But after a couple months of only having 6 picks, it feels great to be back at 7.

      • knighn

        You’re assuming they didn’t try?! Why do you think they took the entire clock?!

        • anon

          Probably crying about the poor options that were left at their pick

          • Andy124

            channeling your inner token lol

          • knighn

            Does Chip Big Balls Kelly strike you as someone who cries over something like that?! Blasphemer!!
            EDIT:
            Chip Kelly,
            “It’s like I tell our guys, I don’t care who we don’t get. But I care very, very much about who we do get.”

  • NCBiRDMann22

    Go snag Christan Jones and AROB and I’ll be happy

  • Aussie Eagle

    Tomorrow there will be an early run on WRs

  • borntosuffer

    I almost get the feeling that Chip thinks he doesn’t needs an elite receiver. It will be interesting to see which, if any, receiver he selects.

    • Adam

      And which one of the WR’s left on the board do you consider elite?

      • borntosuffer

        Maybe none. But, he got rid of Djax and added Maclin and Sproles. If I “read” the reasoning correctly, they thought that Jackson was paid more than he was worth. Maybe Chip feels the resources are better spread around more and another highly drafted receiver doesn’t fit that philosophy. Just a thought.

        • knighn

          I think money was only part of it. I think the “Football Reasons” line was legitimate.

        • Adam

          Well, the way I look at it, with Maclin, Cooper, Ertz, and Sproles, the cupboard isn’t exactly bare. Especially with Chip Kelly at the helm. If you compare it to our pass rush situation, We essentially had nothing before tonight. Now we have something. And with the deep class of WR we still have a chance to add someone that isn’t going to be that big of a drop off compared to what we could have got at 26.

          After Watkins, Evans, and possibly Cooks, none of these guys are “elite”, IMO .it’s really up to coaching. And I trust the guy that’s going to mold em.

          • borntosuffer

            Agreed. I was commenting more on the general consensus that Chip was definitely going to take a receiver early. Maybe it won’t be until after the 3rd round. I wouldn’t be all that surprised at this point.

  • oreofestar

    Also Smith was likely target whole time cu Vikings wanted the pick and probably offered more but Eagle might have wanted to be sure they got Smith

    • anon

      vikings trade with seattle? oh well — guess bridgewater coming of the board

      • oreofestar

        if they pick Carr I am gonna laugh

  • Token

    Lee and Robinson will be there tomorrow early. What would it cost to get up there? I dont want to trade either 3rd if they can help it.

    • oreofestar

      just wait it out man…someone will be there at 54

      • Token

        Yea Jordan Matthews maybe,. Neither of those 2 guys.

    • Aussie Eagle

      Vikings just gave up a 4th for an 8 spot move up

      • oreofestar

        yeah probably would have offered a 3rd to move up to 22

  • oreofestar

    I Tthink this is Bridgewater

  • Uncle Wonder

    Wow…vikes made a first-pick.com desperation type trade

  • Uncle Wonder

    If we took Smith in the 1st, i wonder if there will be a run on pass rushers tmrw…floodgates might open cuz there arent tht many available

  • oreofestar

    Real happy for Bridgewater good kid

    • Jerry Pomroy

      I’ll second that.

  • Andy124

    great pick for the vikings i think.

    • oreofestar

      yeah 3 months ago he might have not been there for their 8th pick Vikings taking barr is weird cu of scheme but Barr, BridgeWater and a 5th for a 4th not bad

  • oreofestar

    Also if Teddy becomes a franchise QB they will get a cheap 5th year option on him

  • Aussie Eagle

    uh oh…… Smith’s Twitter handle… @MoneyMarcc91

    • oreofestar

      LMAO!!!

    • knighn

      His Twitter page also says at the top:
      #GodFirst
      Kid isn’t DeSean.

      • oreofestar

        yeah yeah but still funny

        • knighn

          Truth.

    • knighn

      Just to be safe: who’s his agent?!

    • PaoliBulldog

      Football reasons, football reasons….

  • Andy124

    watching that cut-up, smith looks like he plays fast. looks natural at everything. Considering Chip’s love of versatility, he may have been rated much higher on our board than many would have thought. can’t wait to see how he pans out.

    • knighn

      Exactly. I don’t care about anyone else’s board. I care about Chip’s board. (Especially since we didn’t take Johnny Friggin’ Football).

      • borntosuffer

        How would everyone have felt at the beginning of the draft if they would have been told Johnny Football would be selected with the 22nd pick of the draft?

        • oreofestar

          I know you may say BS but if I was told that I would have said Eagels traded out and have been 63% sure only cuz Chip scares me a little

        • knighn

          Half panicked and half absolutely certain that the trade back took place.

  • oreofestar

    That extra 3rd gives me joy

  • Jerry Pomroy

    I’ve said this for months, but those of you that want to get a good look at Marcus Smith, check out this past Sugar Bowl against Miami.

  • oreofestar

    WHat was worst pick of the first my pick goes to Miami
