Eagles Practice Observations: Ryans Makes His Mark

Philadelphia Eagles linebacker DeMeco Ryans.The drill matched up a seventh-year veteran with 86 career starts against a rookie seventh-round pick searching for a roster spot.

DeMeco Ryans vs. Bryce Brown. A one-on-one coverage drill pitting linebackers and defensive backs against running backs and wide receivers. The offensive players generally have the advantage with this setup, and there are many more completed passes than passes broken up.

Eagles Practice Observations

“I can see myself doing anything the coaches ask me to do,” he said. “It doesn’t matter what it is, I can see myself doing it.”

Bryce Brown, the next Albert Pujols?

Running backs coach Ted Williams had a connection to Bryce Brown — someone with an eye, apparently, for exceptional talent.

“I have a friend who lives in the town where he grew up and knew him as a child. I have a lot of faith in this person,” said Williams, his smile growing, “because he also lived in the same town where Albert Pujols grew up. He knew Pujols when he was a high school junior. When he said Bryce Brown can play and he’s the real deal, take that to the bank.”
