A panacea for Eagles fans
Is it too early to look ahead to the 2014 NFL Draft? NEVER! You could also consider this something of "prospect to remember" primer for the college football season. First up: Cody Hoffman, WR, BYU.
Chip Kelly is always in attack mode, loathe to pass up an opportunity to go for the opponent's jugular. He will NEVER waste a possession. The perfect example of this mindset came right before halftime of the Fiesta Bowl.
For the first time since 1993, an Eagles' draft was conducted without the oversight of either of Joe Banner or Andy Reid (or both). We truly are living in a brave new world, one operated by Howie Roseman and Chip Kelly.
Two of your fearless underling leaders writers here at Bleeding Green Nation are fearlessly predicting 16 things each that will happen during what promises to be a totally crazy three-day NFL draft.
Ah, the draft is now less than 90 hours away, so it's time to put out one final 7-round mock. Anders, Mike and myself were joined by newcomer, Philadelphia native and Raiders fan (yes, he's a weirdo -- and a masochist) Brian Hughes.
He's got a body like Randy Moss, roams the deep half like Ed Reed. He's Dexter McCoil, standing 6'4", 224 lbs, having recorded 18 INT over his four-year college career at Tulsa (17 INT in last 3 seasons). Written in honor of GGeagle/John G, sort of.
One of the hottest names over the last three months and now as we enter into the final week before the draft is do-it-all LB Sio Moore of Connecticut. Here's my scouting report of him... written in late December.
The Eagles will almost surely be looking to draft a big target at TE to complement Brent Celek and James Casey. A prospect in the mid-rounds who fits the profile is San Jose State's Ryan Otten, aka David Fales' security blanket.
The draft is about two weeks away, and Mike and I are ready to set our big boards after months of watching prospects. We'll follow the boiler plate top-5 per position and finish with our respective top-50 overall lists.
Mark this down as an installment in the "Search for SAM" series. Tristan Okpalaugo doesn't have the high profile and hype of Dion Jordan, but he's a Day 3 pick (or UDFA) who could potentially fill the same 4-3 Under SAM role for the Eagles.
