Andy Reid sat down with the media yesterday to discuss the Eagles first full team OTAs this week. He talked about a few specific players, so let's just go through one by one.

On the rookies Fletcher Cox, Vinny Curry & Mychal Kendricks.

"They are. You've seen them - maybe not so much with the defensive line because they can't [make contact], but with a linebacker, you're able to see [Mychal] Kendricks make plays and cover people, which is good. This is really more of a passing camp than it is a running camp, so we're not in any team periods running the football."

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie

"Really just kind of picking up from where he left off last year, which he's doing. He's getting a good feel for it, and it's a little different because we're not asking him to play the inside slot position right now. He's playing strictly corner right now, so he's honing in on that and perfecting it."

Nick Foles

"Lots of little things. He's completing balls and his completion percentage is way up there. He's doing a good job with that and knowing the limited amount that he knows right now. He's a smart kid and we're throwing a ton at him right now. We really like his attitude."

Brandon Graham

"I think he's done well. It looks like he's in really good shape and there is zero effects of the knee right now. He's moving fast. I don't know if you'd call it a chip on your shoulder, but he wants to do well. He wants to prove that he's a quality NFL player and I think he's on a mission to do that."

As Reid noted, this is a non contact passing camp. So obviously its important for QBs, WRs, DB and even LBs as far as coverage goes. But for lineman and blitzers there's not a whole lot to see. Offensive lineman really can't block effectively without being able to hit someone.
