But considering the Eagles released their 2011 second-round pick, Jaiquawn Jarrett, yesterday, now seems like a good time to at least assess how each of the team’s 11 picks is doing.
Here’s what I saw from the running backs, wide receivers and tight ends after having re-watched Sunday’s game against the Browns.
Teams have until Friday night at 9 p.m. to trim their rosters down to 53.
For now, coaches and general managers are focused on making sure they keep the right guys. They’re exploring potential trades (as Andy Reid explained yesterday) and probably making practice-squad projections.
But they’re also looking at what’s going on around the league. With 31 other teams forced to let go of 22 guys each, Reid and Howie Roseman will need to have opinions formed on a new pool of about 682 players.
But let me introduce you to Chris Polk.
During this afternoon’s session, the undrafted free agent out of Washington sent cornerback Brandon Hughes flying on a blitz pickup that drew perhaps the loudest ovation of the day.
In the next, he seemed to think that the idea of not having one on the roster at all was at least possible.
“There aren’t all that many true fullbacks left in this league,” Mornhinweg said. “We’ve typically had one because they’re very valuable with some of the things that we do. Special teams count for that particular type of player, normally.”
