Geoff Mosher wrote an interesting piece on Eagles rookie Corner/Safety CJ Gaddis, specifically about the time he held the #2 pick in this year's draft, Calvin Johnson, to zero catches for the only time in his career. Somewhat surprisingly, shutting down one of the best WRs ever to play college football didn't help CJ's draft stock...
Didn't Gaddis figure to attract some extra attention after that game? Shouldn't the junior's draft stock have soared after shutting down a can't-miss prospect?
"Honestly, yes," he said. "But who am I? I'm not someone who makes those decisions. They put me in uniform and I play football. I'm surprised it didn't, but I'm still living and playing today."
Speaking of CJ Gaddis... G Cobb had some good things to say about how he's been picking up the defense.
He almost finished up yesterday's practice with an interception. I like the fact that he went for the pick rather than playing it safe. I think this kid is going to get on the field before the season is out.
If G knows anything, he knows LBs having been a pro bowl LB himself... So it's pretty encouraging to hear what he said about Omar Gaither.
Speaking of Gaither... Ashley Fox talked to him about how, as the team's starting WILL LB last year, he felt about the trade for Takeo Spikes. Hint, it's all good.
