QB Nick Foles
The Cardinals *might* feel hesitant about another
Eagles QB, but let's put it this way: Smith's not
falling, and neither Barkley nor Manuel nor
any other QB in this draft class is anywhere
even close to where Foles is as a prospect.
A second/fourth for Foles is fair value IMO.
I'm not a Geno fan, but what if Kelly is?
#4th Overall-Geno Smith, QB West Virginia
Again, I repeat, I'm not happy if we go this
route. Often passed alot in tight games,
lost in those tight games against better
compeition and played in a weak school.
Coming from an NBA Fan, we often downgraded
a prospect who played at a lesser school. I'm
going to do that here, what makes Geno
better than Barkley?
I know, the athleticism, the read option, etc.
He also has good YPC numbers(nearly 8).
And yes, it's still a team game but it doesn't
reflect well on a prospect if you can't win
Guess I'll trust the Brass on Smith.
#35th Overall: Jonathan Cyprien SS, FIU.
Addressing Strong Safety, Cyprien hits hard
and aggressive, a tall Safety at 6'1.
He can also play an extra LB type of role or
in two deep safety coverage.
#38th Overall(Via Cardinals):
Barrett Jones, OG, Alabama.
This might be too high to take Jones, but
I think he's the type that'll pan out. Being
a part of a championship team will instill that
kind of blue collar work ethic to allow a guy to
Also, his excellent decision making skills and
the ability to pick up blitzes is very nice.
That he can also play center is very encouraging.
Da'Rick Rogers, WR, Golden Eagles.
Boom or bust, the first risk the regime will
take in the draft is Da'Rick Rogers. Explosive
athlete, great blocker and good hands.
Issues surrounding his character, and the overall
average round makeup will drop him to the third
round. He could be a Freddie Mitchell type.
And any time you can get a mid-first WR in the
third round. You do it.
#98th Overall: Travis Kelce, TE, Bearcats
Standing at 6-5,255. A combination of long
arms, blocking ability and explosive open
field play, Travis lives up to the Kelce name
and we shall yet become the Philadelphia Bearcats.
#100th Overall(Via Cardinals):Chris Faulk, OT,LSU.
The second 'risk'of the day. Chris Faulk is a
talented LT with a medical history of his own:
Recovering from a Torn ACL. However, with
a bench press of 25, a combination of
size, athleticism and long hands makes
Faulk a second round talent that fell to the
#131 Overall: TJ McDonald, FS, USC.
A free safety with NFL ties, he ran a 4.5 40 and
a 4.2 shuttle. Very quick, athletic and aggressive
shedding blockers and making tackles. He'll add
more physicality to a renewed secondary.
#199th Overall: Patrick Longergan, C, LSU
Dude's bench pressed 25 and he once played an
entire game with an arm injury. Sold on his
mental toughness, which is half of the battle
in the National Football league. Standing at
6-3, 300 pounds with a combination of long
arms and strong hands. He's a nice solid body.
#201 Overall: Quinn Sharp P/K, OK ST.
Wouldn't it be nice to have a reserve, just
in case god forbid Henery were to go down? And
wouldn't it be a great investment to have the
punting version of Henery?
Why not have both? That's what Sharp would give to
the Eagles. Versatillity, even on special teams
is a plus.
#215th Overall: Jeff Baca OG, UCLA.
Another talented kid, great on his feet, verstile
and can play guard or tackle. Lack of speed though
but the word 'motor' appears again, he works hard
and he'd be a great addition.
Michael Buchanan, DE, Illinois.
6-5, 247 pound defensive end. He's a DE that
could be a DT(and as such, a hybrid player). That
versatility will allow him to be a part of
something here in Philadelphia.
