Cheat Sheet: Eagles Day 3 Draft Targets

NCAA Football: Tennessee Tech at Oregon

Note: We are trying to keep this updated as guys go off the board.

Welcome to Day 3.


As things stand, the Eagles have four remaining picks: 141 (5th), 162 (5th), 237 (7th).

With their first three picks, the Eagles have taken Louisville outside linebacker Marcus Smith, Vanderbilt WR Jordan Matthews and Oregon WR Josh Huff. They still have several areas to address: defensive line depth, linebacker depth, offensive line depth and the secondary.

Here are some players to know:

Lache Seastrunk, RB, Baylor (5-9, 201) - He began his college career at Oregon before transferring to Baylor. Seastrunk ran for 1,177 yards last year, averaging 7.5 yards per carry and scoring 11 touchdowns. He ran a 4.51 at the combine.

Storm Johnson, RB, UCF (6-0, 209) - Ran a 4.60 at the combine. Johnson began his career at Miami before transferring to Central Florida. He had 1,139 rushing yards and 14 touchdowns last season.

Antonio Andrews, RB, Western Kentucky (5-10, 225) - Productive college player who led the nation in all-purpose yards for two years in a row. But he ran just a 4.82 at the combine.

Jordan Tripp, LB, Montana (6-3, 234) - He called himself the most versatile linebacker in this year's class. The Eagles had Tripp in for an official visit. Considered a fantastic athlete who holds up well in coverage, he could contribute in their sub packages right away.

Christian Jones, LB, Florida State (6-3, 240) - A versatile player to keep an eye on. Jones played inside linebacker, outside linebacker and defensive end while with the Seminoles. Jones reportedly failed a drug test at the combine.

Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, OL, McGill (6-5, 321) - Played his college ball in Canada. Duvernay-Tardif is believed to have guard/tackle versatility. The Eagles did their homework on him during the pre-draft process.

Antone Exum, Safety, Virginia Tech (6-0, 213) - He battled injuries last year, but has experience playing both safety and corner. Mayock said recently that teams are looking at him for both spots. Exum ran a 4.59 at the combine.

Matt Patchan, OL, Boston College (6-6, 302) - Athletic offensive lineman who could be of interest in the later rounds.

Jordan Zumwalt, LB, UCLA (6-4, 235) - He played in a 3-4 with the Bruins, starting 17 games inside and five outside. Tommy Lawlor over at Iggles Blitz compared Zumwalt to a Kelly favorite: Kiko Alonso.

Ronald Powell, OLB, Florida (6-3, 237) - He was the top-rated recruit in the country coming out of high school, but battled injuries during his college career. According to Jimmy Kempski of Philly.com, the Eagles have shown interest in Powell during the pre-draft process. At 237, he likely projects as a sub package player as a rookie.

Shamar Stephen, DL, Connecticut (6-5, 309) - He's not expected to go as early as Urban or Hart, but Stephen is another guy who has the measurables the Eagles want on the defensive line.

Devon Kennard, OLB, USC (6-3, 249) - The "versatility" label fits with Kennard. He played defensive end, middle linebacker and outside linebacker in college. A Pac-12 player to keep an eye on in the later rounds.

Josh Mauro, DL, Stanford (6-6, 280) - Mauro played in the Pac-12, and his measurables fit what the Eagles want on the defensive line.

Vinnie Sunseri, Safety, Alabama (5-11, 210) - Another guy who dealt with an injury last year. Sunseri suffered a season-ending torn ACL in 2013, but reportedly turned in 40 times of 4.48 and 4.52 at his Pro Day. Sunseri excelled on special teams and could be worth a late-round flier.

Ed Reynolds, Safety, Stanford (6-1, 207) - As a junior, he had six interceptions and scored three touchdowns. Reynolds has good size and ran a 4.57 at the combine. He's another Pac-12 player with whom Kelly should be familiar.

Trey Hopkins, OL, Texas (6-3, 307) - He might end up being an undrafted free agent, but the Eagles need to add offensive line depth. Hopkins has 34 7/8-inch arms and could be an option at guard.

Colt Lyerla, TE, Oregon (6-4, 242) - Would Kelly take a flier on his former player? Lyerla is a special athlete, but has had a variety of issues and had to leave the team last year. He could be a name to watch as an undrafted free agent.

  • Jeff Asay

    Like to find a potential starter here at Safety, CB, OLB.

    • Jeff Asay

      Aren’t there still some big WR’s out there? Just sayin’

      • Dominik

        Bryant is still out there. Think Sheil forgot about him (or has info that he isn’t on our board, which I don’t think is likely).

        He wrote about him on previous days. If Norwood is an option, Bryant should be, too. I wouldn’t rule out a third WR.

  • Javi Echie

    Give me Christian Jones, Pierre Desir, Aaron Colvin, and Brent Urban

  • Will

    ILB, CB or DT hoping they go Defense…

  • DetmerWonAHeisman

    I’d love DAT late for ST. Vareen at safety, or D. Johnson. Desir at corner. Tripp LB

  • Breakerdog

    Keith McGill is a long CB that I think will be high on their board

    • Richard Colton

      and old

      • oreofestar

        guy will be 29-30 when is rookie deal is up so when that is up you sign him to a 3-4 year deal and he retires plus he is just not polished enough and too old to waste time sitting for a year just…no

  • David Welch

    Do you guys think Christian Jones will fall to us?

    • Will

      we pick first at 101 so we have our pick of the bunch…McGill, Christain Jones, a lot of good player’s left in round 4 today…

    • Adam

      Wondering how much his failed drug test will scare off the Eagles.

      • cliff henny

        my guess is alot. mean if you cant stay clean before million dollar job interview, what’s it going to be like after. doesnt bother me if kid got popped 2 yrs ago, but man, how f-n stupid do you haveto be to piss hot right before combine. and i lovechristian jones, but man, is that dumb

        • WeReagles

          A failed drug test doesn’t mean it was marihuana. It could have been a banned substance that seams to be getting more and more people.

          • cliff henny

            still. you know it’s coming. rather it be for weed than PEDs, cant do either but least with weed will be same player after. it’s more the dumbness than whatever they were on, unless it’s something crazy like a pound of blow in guy’s system.
            .
            do teams know what they tested positive for?

          • NickS1

            How jealous would you be? haha. I kid.

          • cliff henny

            depends, cjones down there in miami, very, he’s playing with powder that was stepped on once by babies. guy up in northest, not even slightly, that crap has been split and chopped 99 different ways from sunday. lyerla would hate philly.

          • NickS1

            Yeah, I’ve never heard anything good about it in Philly. NYC, hit or miss. Miami, can’t miss.

          • cliff henny

            crap sparkles like a cheap diamind ring. shoot, LA miami, they dont even know what powder is, get it from slicing off brick and chop it up yourself at home, or, more likely ina bar bathroom.

          • Adam

            Some of them are diluted samples (not sure which ones), which might be just too much hydration before hand. Diluted samples count as failed tests.

      • Reasonableeaglefan

        A failed drug test at the combine is really a failed IQ test.

  • Hanibal Luis

    That first pick is super key. If they trade back again, would love a pick this year and one next year.

  • NickS1

    I want too many players on this board. If we can trade back 10 spots and pick up a 6th that’d be great. I’d like a lot of these players, though, and there aren’t enough picks to get them.

    • cliff henny

      graham and brown for 6ths, would work. that 1st pick might be worth something too. howie’s been doing really good job of getting trade value.

      • NickS1

        Yeah, I think another trade back happens. Hopefully Graham and Brown get traded, too. Graham I want gone, Brown sadly just has more value to us as a 3rd day pick. Wish I could watch today.

  • NickS1

    Love how Webster gets OLB and TE. Chip’s gotta love that. Go Bloom!

  • DeafDoc

    Now Dix is off, any good big nose tackles left?

    • Will

      Kerr of U of D..a lot of great DT’s still on the board…expect them to start coming off this round…

      • DeafDoc

        Someone mention Caution Reid. I dont know who he is.. what your take?

        • DeafDoc

          Caurion Reid…
          Damn autocorrects

        • Will

          DT…Caraun Reid -Princeton…

  • cliff henny

    hope chip goes Hart, DAT, Pattersen (safety) and Lyerla, all Oregon chalk. finally give something for people to truly complain about.

    • Andy124

      I’d laugh cry maniacly.

  • oreofestar

    I will say Desir,Urban(optimistic as hell),Johnson,Lyerla

    • cliff henny

      mckinnon, and brown gets traded. doubt lyerla, eagles seem obsessed w/ character.

  • Richard Colton

    Wish list day three:
    Yankey (no idea how he lasted this long)
    Desir
    Jones

    • Will

      Yankey is a surprise he’s fallen this far…

  • Hanibal Luis

    Bold-ish prediction: they will not draft any player who had a major injury.

    • oreofestar

      That really is not bold

      • Hanibal Luis

        That’s why its “bold-ish” ;)

    • Adam

      Many evaluators had Colvin as 1st rder. Could be good value, even if he has to sit yr. Chip said team is considering injured prospects now.— Jeff McLane (@Jeff_McLane) May 10, 2014

      • Hanibal Luis

        Darn it.

      • Will

        no………….noooooooooooooo…knuclehead…

      • oreofestar

        I love him not sure if they like hs size he is 5’11 but would like him

      • Token

        id much rather just start Boykin.

  • Will

    The Eagles go DT my bold prediction….

  • NickS1

    Wish I could watch today.

    • Will

      keep you posted on here if your on…

      • NickS1

        Won’t be. Relying solely on team stream.

  • RIP illa

    I would love to trade back with our 1st 4th and pick up an extra 4th…I know very wishful thinking…but if we could do that and walk away with a combo of C. Jones/Tripp and Watkins/Johnson, That would make my day. I don’t know if the failed drug test has put Jones completely off of our board, but if so, I think that would be a mistake. Or maybe he keeps free falling and we can get him in the 5th or 7th,

    And in the spirit of all the moves/trades that have been made, thus far…why not trade back up into the 4th, with one of our 5ths and pick up one of the guys that I consider on the next tier of my 4th round wish list…D. Jones, Urban, Hart, or Webster.
    I think we can still pick up a quality backup/developmental OL in the 5th.

    • oreofestar

      I think if Seastrunk or Thomas falls enough we try and get a 5th for Brown

      • RIP illa

        I love me some Brown. Not a fan of any trade scenario that involves him, but I am still waiting for us to move Graham!!!

        • oreofestar

          Oh I would love Graham gone personally would not mind getting a guy like Powell with our second 5th then getting a 6th for GRAHAM and taking Deandre Coleman

    • Hanibal Luis

      I’m down, but depends how far down. You have the “#1 pick” and with players with 3rd round grades falling, might be a hot commodity.

    • Will

      I like Jones but Eagles are so big on character think they pass on him…

    • Andy124

      We’re assuming the failed drug test was weed. What if it was coke or roids? Change anything?

  • Will

    For all intents and purposes today is the 3rd round grade wise on player’s still on the boards…

  • therealpistolp

    No more trade backs!!!! It’s only so far you can go before nobody’s left..

    • Will

      Don’t hold your breath last trade back opportunity will be with 101 st pick…I’m for it if they drop back a few spots and pick up another two 4th’s….

      • therealpistolp

        Couple spots is cool but no further than that

    • cliff henny

      just that 1st pick, might get good package like eagles did last yr. 5 spots for a 6th, why not. after that, yeah, board are cleared enough, should have definite bpa’s at this point.

      • therealpistolp

        Just don’t see the point in trying to gain an extra late round pick that probably won’t make the team.. Then again this draft is super deep

        • Will

          The draft is a crap shoot you really never know who is a diamond in the ruff you can’t measure heart and determination. The 3rd-4th rounds are project guys some may never play some may grow into Super Stars so having a few more picks increases your odds of finding that player…

        • anon

          If you’re throwing darts at a board, better to have more darts.

  • Rahkem

    I think its gonna be a year or 2 before matthews breaks out similar to demaryius thomas which is who he reminds me of. Demaryius used to be a pure burner but hes now bulked up about 20 pounds sinnce college and sacrificed some of that speed for physicality. The balance and strength are why i believe hes very similar to thomas along with having long speed though matthews is slightly slower.

  • therealpistolp

    Have to say that the WR position looks a lot better than it did yesterday… Maclin, Cooper, Matthews, and Huff vs Maclin, Cooper, ACL Benn, and Damaris deer in the headlights Johnson… Get some depth on D and we ready to line em up

    • Will

      lmao…

  • Eagles1018

    I hope we select either Tripp or Zumwalt. Still need ILB depth and to spell Ryans. And I’m not letting it go they BETTER look at a kicker if not the last pick then UDFA. What time does it start today?

    • Andy124

      Yeah, if jones is off the board, I like zumwalt. Also want a size speed safety project.

      • Eagles1018

        Dontae Johnson would be nice. But as it’s been mentioned before I think the of and Chip believe they’re set at Safety. We can still dream…I would have loved monster Cody on this team…..imagine if they coulda somehow pulled that off along with Matthews? Man…….

    • Dante Inked UP Lovings

      12:00 pm

  • therealpistolp

    DL, DB, and ILB depth is necessary!! Who would u guys grab??? I like Hart, Desir, D. Jones.. Got nothing on LB

    • Will

      DT-DaQuan Jones-Penn State, DT- Daniel McCullers-Tennesse….

    • Hanibal Luis

      I try not to grab anyone anymore, not after the packed subway incident.

      I like Tripp, but a young DB or OG would be cool. Yankey looks like a monster.

      • therealpistolp

        Crowded subways are usually the best place to grab people.. Just blame it on the guy next to you!!

        • Hanibal Luis

          Not when you’re the only round eye in an Asian country subway and everyone points at you while my hands are in my pockets.

          I wonder if BG(yes, last year deal but still…) and BB have any value today.

    • Adam

      Najee Goode isn’t terrible, but we do need another guy for depth there.

    • Will

      Lamin Barrow and Yarwin Smallwood Are still avaiable I believe and Christian Jones…

  • oreofestar

    If anyone cares Huff is wearing 11 :P

    • anon

      what does that mean? who was 11 before?

      • oreofestar

        Desean is wearing 11 is WAS that’s all not that it matters I just threw it out in case anyone was interested

      • Hanibal Luis

        Jeremy Bloom. I still get dizzy spells.

    • Hanibal Luis

      Confirmed!?!?! I’m a soothsayer :D

  • Nick Tacconi

    Definitely try to go after Yankey Desir or Dontae Johnson

  • Will

    Yankey would be a nice pick up can play multiple positions…Herremans is in the twilight of his career…

  • Hanibal Luis

    Oh, forgot about Dion Bailey.

  • Dante Inked UP Lovings

    I still want De’anthony, but kinda shocked he’s a 4.5 guy. He looks faster on tap maybe he just have good game speed, but I do like the josh huff pick and other picks the Eagles selected I think Eagles are having a good draft so far.

    Draft DAT and he can sit and learn from Darren sproles. 2 years later he takes over.

    • anon

      Kelly said they drafted Sproles in the 5th, hard for me to see them taking Sproles again in the 5th. Interesting to see where DAT goes given that 40 time. I would have thought DAT would go before HUFF.

  • Will

    20 minutes tick..tock…lol..49er’s and Jets have lots of picks hope Howie can work a trade back …

  • Eagles1018

    I stand corrected. Please don’t trade out of that 1st pick, select Jordan Tripp. I re watched his Coastal Carolina film. He’s the dude to get DeMeco off the field when we face passing downs. His size and instincts next to Kendricks speed (and I’ll confidently say improved tackling) and we should be set at the inside for a while.

    • Eagles1018

      Btw I’m happy with Fletcher Cox but I was hoping we’d go with Luke Keuchly in that draft. And now look he’s a friggin monster.

      • anon

        He went way to early for us. I think Cox would be a monster in a 4-3, it’ll be interesting what he does in FA.

  • DAS

    Any thoughts on Shayne Skov? Would love to see the guy in midnight green! Not to mention he is a Pac-12 guy

  • Hanibal Luis

    Here, we go!Throw out some names. Yankey!

    • oreofestar

      Desir, Urban

  • oreofestar

    No trade

  • DAS

    Jaylen Watkins, there you go!

  • oreofestar

    Watkins I can live with

  • anon

    Wouldn’t be surprised if Jets take McCarron, could be day 1 starter.

  • Michael

    Eagles trade Bryce Brown to the Bills.
