Eagles camp notes - Brandon Gibson, Jack Ikegwuonu impress

News and notes from Eagles camp pulled from around the web.

- Merrill Reese was a guest on WIP this afternoon and said that Harold Carmichael was very impressed with rookie WR Brandon Gibson. Carmichael said that Gibson reminded him of former Eagle Chris Carter. It should be interesting to follow Gibson this offseason, a number of draftniks said he was on of the steals of the late rounds. Many people liked his ability, but truly terrible QB play limited him production in college last year. The Eagles practice blog also highlighted a number of nice plays from Gibson.

Oh and I think we have our first contender for the Na Brown award!

- Jack Ikegwuonu was also singled out for exceptional play in the morning session.

On defense, the player who shined was Jack Ikegwuonu. On the first play of the drill, he closed beautifully to knock down a McNabb pass in the corner of the end zone, showing a burst of speed that means he's close to fully recovered from last year's knee injury. He also showed impressive jamming technique at the line, effectively delaying a receiver's release twice.

- Also worth mentioning is rookie TE Cornelius Ingram. Watching practice footage today, I saw McNabb hook up with Ingram for multiple touchdowns in red zone drills.
