Roseman Wrestles with Draft Process
Roseman gave the distinct impression you shouldn't expect them to take anybody who might have star-level talent but doesn't always play hard. One of the things the Eagles have learned through trial and error is that you can't teach or instill effort.

Roseman, Birds shaking up draft philosphy
Roseman said the Eagles have examined everything about the way they’ve drafted in recent years, both the positives and the negatives, and looked at other teams to see what’s worked for them.

He said they’ll also place less emphasis on the Combine and personal workouts, focusing instead on game film.
