We’ve discussed the Eagles’ first-round options quite a bit in this space.
But there’s plenty of talent to be found on Friday and Saturday too. The Birds currently have a pair of Day 2 picks: Nos. 35 (second round) and 67 (third round). They could acquire more if they trade down in the first round.
So here’s a list of 15 names to know. These are potential Round 2 or Round 3 options. Obviously, there’s plenty of guess-work involved since we don’t know who’s going to go in the first round, so consider this a starting point. I’m sure you all have names that I left off, so feel free to chime in with those in the comments section (as if you need any encouragement!).
NFL Network’s Mike Mayock recently released his list of the top-100 prospects in the draft. Here are a few Eagles-related nuggets from his rankings.
From Greg Cosell to Mike Mayock and others, here’s a roundup of what people are saying about West Virginia QB Geno Smith.
The NFL Combine kicks off today at Lucas Oil Stadium. From E.J. Manuel to Dion Jordan to Dee Milliner here’s what I’ll be keeping an eye on in Indianapolis.
With the Combine kicking off later this week, Mike Mayock of NFL Network released his list of the top-five prospects at each position.
He also joined Rich Eisen for a podcast and revealed several draft nuggets that will be of interest to this audience.
“I think we’ve got more depth for the first three rounds than maybe any time you and I have done this draft,” Mayock said. “But I’m not seeing the difference-makers at the top end.
“I’m not seeing the explosive difference-makers at the top end of this draft. And I’m not sure that the fifth pick is that much better than the 20th pick or the 30th pick.”
The Eagles officially announced their coaching staff Friday afternoon. Here is how it looks:
The Eagles’ search for a head coach is not over just yet.
Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley was in town Tuesday to meet with Jeffrey Lurie, Howie Roseman and Don Smolenski. Bradley is the only candidate who’s interviewed a second time, but there’s a caveat. His first interview was brief because Bradley was in the middle of preparing for Seattle’s divisional round matchup against the Falcons.
And so yesterday, everyone got to know each other a little better. Can’t you just picture it? Howie pouring drinks. Jeffrey asking Gus for one more “Do your job!” reenactment. Don wondering if Bradley will show up to the Halloween party dressed as Walter White.
I’m sure a good time was had by all.
Bill Cowher perked up some ears when he told Newsday that he plans to coach again at some point. He hasn’t paced an NFL sideline since 2006 (at which point Nick Foles may or may not have had a driver’s license) but insists his time off is a “non-issue.”
“I did it for 27 years. You don’t just forget things overnight. One thing about this job is it’s been really good because it allows me to study the game and do features on the game. I want to know what I’m talking about so I’m watching tape. It’s not like I’m out of it. I know how the game is changing.”
The coaching “retreads” have been a bit of a hot topic in Philadelphia over the past few days in particular. Between Cowher’s comments, Jaw’s push for Jon Gruden and the announcement that the Eagles will interview Lovie Smith Thursday, the debate is on whether Jeffrey Lurie should go with the proven commodity over the up-and-comer.
