Mock draft round-up: 10 mocks, 10 different players for the Eagles - Jimmy Kempski, Philly.com
The NFL Draft is still 7 weeks away, and opinions of what players the Eagles might pick are all over the map. Here are 10 mocks drafts, with 10 different picks for the Eagles, none of which are on the offensive side of the ball. A minimum of 9 of the below predictions will be incorrect.
Updated Thoughts on OLB - Tommy Lawlor, Iggles Blitz
The goal is to get better at ROLB. Cole is still an effective starter. He had 8 sacks last year. Cole remains a great effort rusher. He will do everything in his power to get to the QB. Cole just doesn’t have the explosion off the ball to make offenses fear him. He will beat the LT from time to time, but not consistently. The Eagles need someone who can get the best of LTs on a regular basis.
Vick's departure very different from arrival - Les Bowen, Daily News

Lurie was much less circumspect last night, after Vick’s Eagles tenure officially ended, when the free agent quarterback signed with the New York Jets.

Per one source, three teams have been mentioned as possible landing spots: New England, San Francisco and Seattle. It is unclear whether there is legitimate interest from any of these three teams, only that they are the names that are being mentioned within Jackson’s inner-circle.
Watch Comcast’s original report on the Vet demolition 10 years ago today - The700Level
I can’t remember where I was the day the Vet came down. All I can recall is that I was out of town and therefore unable to make it down to South Philly to watch the 700 level meet its end. Maybe I was a little disappointed for missing out on the destruction of Veterans Stadium in person, though to be honest, probably not.
Lane Johnson: Road To The Top - Dave Spadaro, PE.com
Nobody talked much about Lane Johnson during his rookie season, always a good thing for a right offensive tackle who digs in the trenches and lets the glory go to others ...

And some front office men believe GJ Kinne, with a strong off-season, could force his way into Eagles back-up discussion as well— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) March 21, 2014
