Eagles Trade Up, Take WR Matthews At 42

Jordan Matthews
The Eagles moved up 12 spots in the second round and selected Vanderbilt wide receiver Jordan Matthews.

[Full breakdown with video here.]

Matthews (6-3, 217), a cousin of Jerry Rice, ran a 4.46 at the combine. He played in the SEC and finished his college career as the conference’s all-time leader in receptions (262) and receiving yards (3,759).

“The one thing we talk about is man coverage, and one thing that he does is he can catch the ball in traffic,” said Chip Kelly. “He made an unbelievable amount of contested catches. He’s got such a wingspan and can go up and get it, can play both inside and outside. We’re probably going to start him inside. If we’ve got Jeremy Maclin on one side and Coop [Riley Cooper] on the other side and you throw him inside, and he has experience…There were only a couple guys in the draft that we felt that you could see on film could play both inside and outside.”

The Eagles were interested in two receivers heading into Day 2: Matthews and USC’s Marqise Lee. When Lee got plucked by Jacksonville 39th overall, they accelerated their efforts to move up and grab one of their desired targets. They shipped a fourth-round pick to the Titans to move from 54 to 42 to grab Matthews, who had 112 catches for 1,477 yards and seven touchdowns as a senior. In 2012, Matthews caught 94 balls for 1,323 yards and eight scores.

Here’s how the measurables compare to other receivers:

He will drop some passes. Per Rotoworld, Matthews dropped 7.69 percent of the catchable balls thrown his way, which is slightly above average.

“Everyone was worried about his speed, and some wonder whether he’s going to be just a possession receiver,” wrote NFL.com’s Gil Brandt. “What I know about Matthews is that he’s one of the hardest-working prospects out there. He’s the guy who, whenever he stops playing football, will be a hugely successful person, whether it’s as a politician or a banker or an entrepreneur. He’s a really special guy.”

Matthews graduated from Vanderbilt with an economics degree in three-and-a-half years. He was also a team captain as a senior.

He said he had a great feeling leaving Philadelphia following his visit. To ensure that the meeting went well, he did his homework.

“We actually had four films from the Eagles in our office so before I even got to go meet with them for the interview, I watched a couple of those films from last year to kind of get a taste for it,” said Matthews.

“I know just from some of the game film that I watched, you definitely have to be able to go across the middle and catch balls but you also have to be able to help with the bubble screens and also blocking on the screen game,” he said. “I just have to get in, learn it, apply it to myself and be the best I can be.”

  • Brandon Pinkney

    I like this pick! all big time receivers!

  • usmcnole

    More team captains…love it

  • Joe Thomas

    Great pick! Looking forward to seeing him prove that he is more than a possession receiver.

    • Cheesesteak

      true..how can you consider someone who runs a 4.4 a possession receiver? Not you you but they you.

      • Joe Thomas

        Yea he fast enough to make plays. They say his speed doesnt show up in game, i guess thats why. Chip will fix that.

  • Alvaron Bowe

    Great Pick by the Eagles – A big Bodied Athletic Receiver

    • usmcnole

      Thats desean could go

  • Token

    Well obviously I would have chose Robinson. But for whatever reason Chip must not prefer him. I can live with Matthews.

    Productive in a tough conference. Great kid by all accounts. Isnt scared of hard work. Size, hands. Speed, he doesnt have to be the fastest guy in the world to be successful. Ran a faster 40 then many thought he would. Good blocker. Comfortable with the bubble screen game.

    Chip just suggested Lee and Matthews were their targets. So they went up and got their guy after Lee got taken. Ahead of Seattle who may take one.

    “Jordan Matthews asked for game tape of the CBs he was going to face in practice at the Senior Bowl.” – I love that

    Im finding out through the course of writing this post that its not hard to really like this kid.

    • Adam

      The luke warmest take I’ve seen you make. This brings a tear to my eye.

  • Philly0312

    Not sure how a possession receiver averages 7.8 YAC in the SEC.

    • Kev_H

      Can you catch 100+ balls and not be a possession receiver? Possession plus everything else.

  • Eagles1018

    I’m not watching (my wife wanted dinner…….) is Latimer off the board already?

    • Javi Echie

      Nope Latimer and Robinson are still out there

      • Eagles1018

        And we traded our 54th pick to get Matthews? And gave up a 4th? Wtf???? Not about Latiner but there’s still WRs out there

        • Javi Echie

          Character really is big now with this team supposedly he has a great work ethic and really good guy…also can’t go wrong with a guy that asks to study the cbs before a game. I like it

  • b_stel

    Filling needs so far, but neither of these guys looks like a starter on Day One

  • Wilbert M.

    I would have waited and got Donte Moncrief with our pick and kept the 4th rounder. Of course, if Moncrief goes sooner, it kills that theory.

    • Javi Echie

      Mathews was the better receiver, Moncreif would be based off measurables

    • Token

      This kid is a better prospect.

  • Stuart Philp

    Love this pick

  • Kev_H

    Guy has a legendary work ethic and skills to match. He’s gonna be a star for awhile here and fun to root for.

  • All Things Bad@ss

    Really starting to see that Chip values, among other things, hard-working, high character players. Love the pick … love what he’s building. He’s building the perfect beast.

    • EaglesFanInPhx

      I really think intelligence is really his deciding factor. Any prospect who is “close” to others, he seems to always take the smartest of the bunch.

    • Cheesesteak

      Long arms too…

    • JAMIN67

      It makes perfect sense though. You don’t need a team of the best players at every position. You need players with a good skill set and the heart and desire to be better.

  • John J. King

    Smart guy, sounds great.

  • Hanibal Luis

    Ok, there we have it, the first Chip WR. Good pick, Can’t argue with the value.

  • John E. Zang

    Finally we can breathe on the receiver front. Wanted him, Latimer, or Robinson but this guy beats their production. Great kid and let’s get to round three now!

  • Hanibal Luis

    Wow, Richardson to Seattle.

    • Javi Echie

      Terrible pick imo

      • Hanibal Luis

        Super early, but hey, they’re the Champs.

        • Javi Echie

          Very true lol

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

    ….and with At-At at 50, that’s all the good pass rushers gone by 50.

    glad we got Marcus when we did. Great, great draft. True to everything Chip and Howie have been saying all spring.

    • Kevin

      Glad I read your post Rob, I was just typing the same thing. Like the two picks and it looks like the Eagles read the board right.

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

        yep…and still 2 more “quality” picks to go!

        Eagles started 24 hrs ago with:
        22, 54, 86, 122, 162, 237
        As of now–
        26 (Smith), 42 (Matthews), 83, 86, 162, 237

        Howie!!!

        • guest

          didnt they trade 162 to move up?

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

            no, traded 122 to move up.

    • JAMIN67

      Yup…so much for all the “fans” complaining yesterday. In Chip I trust.

  • SoCalEaglesFan

    Great! They just replaced Jason Avant.

    • oreofestar

      yeah cuz Avant was 6’3 with 4.45 speed and high upside

      • Javi Echie

        Yea really what a terrible comparison

        • Hanibal Luis

          Well, well now, yes, technically he does replace Avant’s roster spot. And sure he can be the new “Avant”, the upgraded turbo model with a spoiler and heated cup holder.

          • Javi Echie

            lol Touche sir

    • JAMIN67

      Yeah, cause Avant broke all kinds of SEC receiving records.

  • Kevin

    What this draft has taught me so far…. Don’t be a running back.

    • Javi Echie

      It’s crazy that the best rb Hyde may not go until the third lol

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

        maybe to us! great value there

  • Andy124

    Why settle for a small fast guy or a slow big guy when you can have a big fast guy? This kind of receiver is why I didn’t want Lee or Cooks. Can’t wait to see him play.

    • damrvrhunter

      My feelings exactly. I was glad they passed on Lee and did not move up for Cooks. Both may very well have better careers than Matthews statistically speaking but I believe that the “intangible” dirty-grunt work Matthews will provide will be key in some critical moments in the lead up to a championship.

  • Kev_H

    Matthews will catch more balls for more yards and more TDs than DeSean Jackson the next three seasons and it might not even be close.

    • A Roy

      Who’s the guy you’re comparing Matthews to?

      • oreofestar

        Do not know why I see Justin Blackmon it is a bad comp but I keep thinking it

        • A Roy

          Either you missed my subtle (hah) attempt at humor or I missed yours. I like the pick. I think we were conditioned to Cody Latimer and are a bit put off, but the video I’ve watched shows a good long stride and some toughness.

          • oreofestar

            I understand what you were doing :P it is just something that has been coming into my mind so I said it

          • A Roy

            Oh. I struggle to find a comparison.

  • Hanibal Luis

    Matthews Combine PC at PE.com right now. Sounds like a great, confident kid.

  • Andy124

    Sheil, Tim, can we make people pass a sarcasm detector test before granting posting privileges here? :)

  • Hanibal Luis

    There goes Latimer to the Broncos.

  • NickS1

    Wow, nice pick by Denver…. Listening to Kiper question this kid’s explosion is laughable.

  • addicted2mula

    He is cousins with Jerry Rice

  • NickS1

    Wonder what turned off Chip from Lattimer.

    • Javi Echie

      I’m assuming production might have been the deciding factor on that one

      • NickS1

        Don’t disagree with you. Just trying to piece it together. Give up the 4th rounder to move up for Matthews or sit pat at 54 and get Lattimer. Obviously, I have the benefit of hindsight, but I like the move even less than I did before.

        • Andy124

          Maybe Matthews interviewed better.

          • NickS1

            Must have been a hell of an interview.

      • Doctor Jay

        production and size… mathews arms and hands are an inch bigger

    • Hanibal Luis

      The WRs measurables are comparable. Could have been the interview, production or slight preference in talent.

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

      Didn’t he instagram himself at Geno’s on his trip here?
      #1struleofsportsscience

      • NickS1

        Never talk about sports science. I feel like we’ve already established this….

    • oreofestar

      Who sayed he turned him off he may like him and simply like Matthews more

  • hillbillybirdsfan

    Wanted a WR and pass rusher in the first 2 picks and I liked both of these players. I was actually hoping for ODB in the 1st and Marcus Smith in the 2nd. Close enough. I like Watkins in the 3rd but am afraid since Philly has such a strong ‘wrong brother’ tradition. He’s liable to tear an ACL hugging his mom when we draft him.

  • Hanibal Luis

    Now, if they get someone they really dig at the first 3rd rounder, they could move down with their second 3rd and try recoup a pick.

    • Javi Echie

      I’m hoping for one of these cbs Pierre Desir, Keith McGill, or Antone Exum

      • Hanibal Luis

        Baptiste just went to NO, so yeah, I want a CB but I’m a Gaines fan.

        • Javi Echie

          Baptiste was overrated but I.think Desir is the best cover corner of the bunch only knock is he’s from d2

          • Hanibal Luis

            Noooo, He’s the next Sherman, same size, former WR, same amount of dreadlocks, avid Twitterer :P

          • Javi Echie

            Oh I am in no way one of those I watch a lot of college and sjb is def overrated

          • Hanibal Luis

            No worries, I know man. You’re one of the guys here who’s post about CFB I dig.

          • Javi Echie

            I’m not an expert don’t get it twisted I’m not an expert but that’s my opinion and I been big on Exum for a while

          • Hanibal Luis

            I’m twisted all on my own.

          • Javi Echie

            Haha no idea why my phone just did that lol

  • Eagles1018

    I really wanted Latimer smh

  • Reasonableeaglefan

    Funny, it was okay to mock Latimer to the Eagles at 22 and he gets picked at number 56. But trading back and taking Smith at 26 when, no edge rushers were left by number 54 is ludicrous.

    • Eaglehaslanded

      Yes, kind of seems like the Eagles knew what they were doing after all! It’s a reason why they are in the business of professional football and we fans type away on the keyboard about football. Good draft thus far.

  • jmkrav

    Hey everyone… Click the measurements and comparisons tab on the spider chart…

    Same measurable as demaryius Thomas and josh Gordon. More college production than either of those guys. Played against top competition. Zero character concerns.

    Yessah

    • guest

      Thomas was a way better athlete and slightly bigger though. Dude was a beast.

  • Hanibal Luis

    What a haul for the Jags in the 2nd, Lee and now Robinson.

    • Javi Echie

      Add.Cecil Shorts and if they ever get back Blackmon they could be building something nice down there. No excuses for Bortles if he sucks

      • Eagles1018

        You realize were gonna be playing against the jags and all the WRs we liked, right?

        • Tikkit

          As rookies, with a rookie QB? Fine.
          Also, the Jags are garbage.

        • anon

          Gus Bradley going all offense.

  • Goombachiphi

    So best defensive player from here on and either draft a RB or a udfa RB. Still need a NT big time.

    • Javi Echie

      Bring on Christian Jones!!

      • Andy124

        Was just about to ask the room, how early is too early for jones.

        • Javi Echie

          Our first pick in the third sounds about right then best available cb or og with the second 3rd round pick

        • NickS1

          Gimme Moncreif/Bryant/Desir/Gaines with 83 and Jones with 86.

          • Andy124

            Thinking Janis in 5th so earlier picks can be spent elsewhere?

          • NickS1

            Won’t be mad. Just curious what happens if all four are still on the board by 83.

          • Andy124

            No clue. Draft is already a win for me. It’s all gravy now. :)

          • NickS1

            Yeah, I’m not there yet. I felt better after yesterday than I do right now. And the only reason is the value of the Matthews pick. I get the Eagles’ thinking, but I just struggle to see the trade up for him.

          • Andy124

            I hear you. Didn’t play out how I’d prefer, but in the end, I wanted an edge rusher and a size/speed wr and I got both. So big picture, I’m all smiles. Can’t claim the details look as pretty as perfect.

          • NickS1

            Very fair.

      • Goombachiphi

        yes please

  • Hanibal Luis

    Whoa! Garoppolo to NE?

    • Javi Echie

      I think that means Houston trades for Mallet

      • Hanibal Luis

        Looks like it. Mallet wants to play.

    • Foles2Sproles

      Brady for our fifth

      • Javi Echie

        Let him sit and carry Foles’ clipboard

        • Foles2Sproles

          That’s what i was thinking. he’d be an okay choice to backup foles. I guess…

  • NickS1

    CBS Draft Tracker from awesome to awful real quickly.

  • Glenn

    We could have picked Lee at 28. And today picked Marcus Smith at 42, with the trade up. It sounds like Lee was rated higher by most everyone.

    • Andy124

      Prefer smith and Matthews.

      • PJ

        Smith stinks

        • Andy124

          Not you. You smell like clover.

      • Glenn

        I prefer Lee over Matthews. I hope you end up being right. Maybe Lee’s injury plagued year is foreboding of his NFL career. And Matthews is a stud. I do like his size, wingspan, and ability to block.

    • NickS1

      Was a trade down to 28 a possibility?

      • Glenn

        I’m sorry. I meant they should have picked Lee last night at 26. Then today traded up for Marcus Smith. I much preferred Lee over Matthews.

  • Jerry Pomroy

    So far our picks are falling right in line with my overall wish list. Can I get a Christian Jones & Tre Mason in the 3rd???

    • Reasonableeaglefan

      I think you were on the Barr and ARob train with me, how does Smith and Matthews compare?

      • Jerry Pomroy

        Marcus was my consensus favorite in the entire draft. Just didn’t think we had a legit chance based on where we were picking.

        Marcus is a much safer pick than Barr. Lower ceiling but higher floor. He’ll adapt much more quickly and is a more rounded and complete player than Barr. I love the pick.

        Jordan Mathews was originally my favorite of the receivers. Compares very closely to TO without the attitude. While he does make some drops, he makes up for them with big plays and one handed circus catches. Loved ARob’s toughness and thought that he’d be more in love with what Chip wanted than Mathews. I love the pick.

        • Reasonableeaglefan

          Nice breakdown. I was just glad we addressed OLB and WR with the first 2 picks. It takes a lot of the pressure of these later picks. I feel like the break before the 4th lets us come out of the gate firing.

        • Eagles1018

          JP I got respect for u bro. But I don’t believe u like Marcus Smith more than Anthony Barr. Ur happy with him like I am but you’d do cartwheels if we got Barr like I woulda.

  • Jerry Pomroy

    Watching Troy makes me miss the days of he and Bobby T.

    • Reasonableeaglefan

      Well, I miss Troy anyway

  • Hanibal Luis

    bye bye Tre.

    • Jerry Pomroy

      Damn it!!!

      • Hanibal Luis

        Seems like not a great blocker so might not have been on the radar if that helps.

  • PJ

    I like this Commodore. Partial redemption for howie after last night’s abortion

  • Hanibal Luis

    Up soon boys!

  • Andy124

    McDougle is a fun, fun name to say.

    • NickS1

      Especially when it’s not for your team.

  • doug

    eagles trade #83 pick to texans

    • Hanibal Luis

      And get Clowney? :P

      They don’t give the details quick enough for me.

      • Andy124

        Sounds fair.

  • NickS1

    Had a feeling a trade down was going to happen. Early 4th round pick plus a 5th or 6th?

  • Neanderthal

    Hopefully Chippah has a one Matthew per team rule. (Bye bye Casey)

    • NickS1

      (trades Jordan)

      • Neanderthal

        Lol. For Jordan D.

        • NickS1

          I wouldn’t get mad about that trade at all.

  • Hanibal Luis

    Ok, now they’re up, I hope. Predictions?

    • Andy124

      Jones

      • Hanibal Luis

        Dig it, or a DB.

    • Foles2Sproles

      Desir

  • Glenn

    Okay. When you have a guy like Nix slide down to your third round pick, why do you trade down? Excellent NT in a 3-4.

    • Hanibal Luis

      But a guy who has been out of shape and allegedly takes plays off. Character seems to be a concern.

      • Glenn

        Maybe thats why he slid to the third round, when he is a first round talent. I would have taken him here, and Chip would have gotten him in shape. Certainly worth the chance here.

        • Hanibal Luis

          That’s the thing about character, he might all the talent in the world, but if they don’t think they can get him to do what he needs, then why waste the pick. Just speculating what they would be thinking.

          • Glenn

            I understand. That’s why he slid to mid third round. An incredible value for a guy of his ability. Think he was worth the shot there. I will be keeping an eye on Nix as a Texan. And Lee.

  • Jerry Pomroy

    What the heck did we get for 83? My newborn daughter was fussing in my arms because she was hungry and I missed the trade details.

    • Andy124

      101 and 140

    • dougfromchitown

      texans 4th and 5th (both are the 1st pick in the round i believe)

      • dougfromchitown

        yup 101 and 141 are the picks

      • Hanibal Luis

        Very nice! Two more picks. And great spots.

  • Hanibal Luis

    Clarke or Urban?

  • anon

    Josh Huff from Oregon RIP Jarvis Landry

    • eaglesfanqc

      Landry go to Dolphins earlier

      • anon

        ahhh, i was watching NBA playoffs — i’ll just tell myself that’s why we took this guy here.

  • Hanibal Luis

    Whoa!!!! Huff???? hahahaha Just got real!

  • NickS1

    A bit of a reach.

    • anon

      ya think?

      • NickS1

        I was trying to tone down my criticism, but it’s getting tough. Not sure what the thinking is.

        At least we can be reasonably confident that Damaris won’t be back.

    • Jerry Pomroy

      Just a little bit. I don’t mind Huff at all. I just think it’s about a full round too early for him.

      • anon

        Yeah silly considering we have two 4ths and 2 5ths now. Be interesting to see what their board looks like. They must not like anyone on defense at all.

        • NickS1

          Really hope C. Jones is on the board at 101.

          • Jerry Pomroy

            That’s who I thought they’d grab here.

          • NickS1

            Likewise. Would love the addition. Maybe his failed drug test pushes him down to 101, or even 140. Not likely, but never know.

          • Hanibal Luis

            But the failed test might push him off the Eagles Board too.

          • NickS1

            Yup, here’s to being hopeful that Chip is a little more liberal in his position on weed.

          • Hanibal Luis

            Not in Oregon anymore. When is the Penn legislature getting on this?

          • NickS1

            Not soon enough. If only for the money, the state needs to get onboard.

        • Jerry Pomroy

          Seriously. Like I said, I like Huff, just did not expect that. To be honest, while I like the Smith and Mathews picks, I didn’t expect those guys.

          Hopefully, we can utilize the 4ths on a DB & I’d like to see a N/S style RB, a la Tre Mason whom I wanted.

  • Hanibal Luis

    And there come the pretzels.

  • dougfromchitown

    josh huff is the pick (from oregon)

  • CJ

    Ok, I get Marcus, I was OK with Matthews, but didn’t like the moveup to take a WR with so many still there. But Huff over Moncrief? Really? Someone has to help me understand this one.

    • anon

      You knew there needed to be a pac-10 guy there. I think for chip it’s about measurables and intangibles, doesn’t matter if you can actually play or not.

      • CJ

        Look at Huff and Moncrief’s measurables and come back and see me.

        • anon

          who do you think has a better chance of being a player? Now for sure Cooks was on their board.

            IDK how this is even a serious question. Where does Huff beat Moncrief? In the locker room? He was productive in a pass happy team where DAT was drawing the attention. Chip himself talked about how it’s important for WRs to be great at one thing (preferably more). Where’s he great? He’s not tall, he’s not fast. He’s a quicker Avant. He’s Mr. Reliable.

            If you want him over Moncrief, fine, get me Nix, Desir, or another defender and draft him in the 4th. No one was taking him today, not will Ellington and Moncrief on the board.

      Seriously….

  • anon

    Wow – defense getting shizanked. Over under that we get a secondary? another DL, LB, something?

    • Andy124

      Is bet on a lb. zumwalt could be target at 101.

  • G_WallyHunter

    Can someone fill me in on what happened here? Eagles traded their 83?

    • anon

      yeah for TX 4 and 5. Texans take Nix. we take josh huff. Texas remakes their DL in the draft, we get 3 mediocre players, but we have a bunch of picks left.

      • G_WallyHunter

        Took huff at 86… Alright well 2 more picks they better make up for that.. 5 picks left. If these players pan out Howie and chip will look like geniuses turning the 6 picks into 8

      • Maggie

        Oh, stuff it!

  • Hanibal Luis

    I’ve been optimistic until now, but this one is a bit of a head and bottom scratcher.

  • Hanibal Luis

    There goes Clarke.

  • Will

    wow…

  • Hanibal Luis

    Moncrief to the Colts.

  • Joe L

    So Matthews will start on the inside…….and then you draft a slot guy.

    Almost certain Maclin is done after 2014.

    • anon

      Matthews, Huff and Sproles working the middle of the field?

      • Jerry Pomroy

        Think it’s safe to say that Damaris Johnson’s days are numbered as an Eagle.

        • Tikkit

          Thank goodness

        • anon

          Yeah but i don’t like taking 5th rounders in the 3rd round.

          • Tikkit

            As defined by whom? “experts”? The only experts we should be concerned with are NFL execs. IE Howie and Chip

          • anon

            So every pick is a good pick?

  • Joe Thomas

    Good luck mocking a Chip Kelly draft. He is getting guys he wants though. Tomorrow will probably be all defense and maybe a wr to cap it lol.
    I try to remember, Chip is still eyeing next offseason too. He has a long term plan for long term success.

    • Eagles1018

      I hope he goes after a kicker. UDFA or 6 – 7 round guy. Not even joking.

      If they go UDFA then Cody Parkey or Jeff Budzien.

      • Maggie

        Hey that’s what I said on Thursday!!

      • Joe Thomas

        Could use a good kicker

  • JosephR2225

    This draft is weird.

    • Tikkit

      This is a “our board” draft. F the “experts” your Eagles are picking what THEY want. I friggin love it.

      • JosephR2225

        I agree… but we’ll see.

        • Tikkit

          That’s exactly how we should feel. The draft is a crap shoot. Hopefully the majority of the picks work.

      • PJ

        Pass the koolaid

  • Jerry Pomroy

    Ok, so we’ve got all night and tomorrow morning to go over the board and available players in order to select first tomorrow.

    So who’s the pick? Because I got no effin clue…lol.

    • Tikkit

      Anyone who can kick the ball out of the back of the endzone. Anyone.

  • Will

    ILB OR CB maybe…do they grab an OG?

  • Jerry Pomroy

    There goes our OL prospect to replace the Toddfather.

    • Joe L

      Cyril Richardson is still there. And Brandon Thomas.

      • Jerry Pomroy

        I forgot about Thomas. But there he goes to SF.

    • Tikkit

      I’m thinking our boy Bamiro has a chance.

  • Goombachiphi

    get another WR Plz.

    • Tikkit

      Finish the draft with WR’s, it’s what GEAGLE would have wanted.

      • Goombachiphi

        we all know there are infinity first round WR’s in this draft. DUH

    • JosephR2225

      Howie did WAY too many mock drafts on first-pick.com.

      • Tikkit

        Actually, Will did 5 more than Howie.

  • Joe Thomas

    Well they made a nice little fourth round splash to start day 3 last year, hoprfully Kelly has a nice solid defensive pick in mind.

  • Tikkit

    Whaaaaaa Dri Archer a 3RD rounder? Wow.

    • Joe L

      Why are you surprised? He’s a dynamic player who had an injury riddled senior year. Awesome complement to Bell.

      • Tikkit

        I totally agree, I thought he’d be a fourth. But good for him.

    • Eagles1018

      Wait…is DAT still on the board???

  • Will

    Max Bulloug-ILB, Bashaud Breeland -CB or Kieth McGill, or they could go OG Anthony Steen, Russell Bodine or John Urschel…hard to say what direction the Eagles go…

  • anon

    The Pats took a QB in the second round — does that make anyone feel better?
