Eagles News: Should Philadelphia draft Brett Hundley?

Philadelphia Eagles news and links for 2/12/2015.

Let's get to the links...

A look back at where the experts projected Geno Smith, Johnny Manziel and Teddy Bridgewater in February - PhillyVoice
Think Marcus Mariota and Jameis Winston are "no doubt about it" top 10 picks? They very well may be when the draft rolls around in late April, but they're certainly not top 10 picks because the draft experts say so.

Brett Hundley – Yes or No? - Iggles Blitz
Brett Hundley is an extremely gifted young QB, with some flaws. He has a ceiling to be a superior passer with very good mobility. He has mobility to put zone reads into play and has experience with packaged plays, both of which will allow the coaching staff to ease him into a full blown NFL offense. I’ve done all the film work on Hundley, and Kyle Crab’s write-up matches my thoughts on Hundley extremely closely, so instead of a write up on Hundley, I thought a flow chart, inspired by my days as an Econ major (roughly based on a prisoners dilemma) would be a better way to discuss the possibilities of drafting Hundley, and why I support it.

Eagles Wake-Up Call: What About Other QB Options? - Birds 24/7
The issue in D.C. is that whether or not to keep Griffin likely won't be Gruden's call. Washington brought in new GM Scot McCloughan, and we know owner Daniel Snyder is always involved. It's tough for me to see a scenario where Snyder green-lights a Griffin trade to another NFC East team when the alternatives are Kirk Cousins and Colt McCoy. Hypothetically speaking, Griffin's skill set would be intriguing in the Eagles' offense, but many who studied Griffin closely last year believed he was broken mechanically as a passer. We've now seen basically two coaching staffs turn their back on him. Getting out of Washington would benefit Griffin at this point, and I'd take a look if I were the Eagles, but there are definitely question marks.

Cut Candidates: NFC East - Rotoworld
Ryans is way overpaid, but he’s the leader of the defense, which is the one thing that may save him. The Eagles seem to love the soon-to-be 31-year-old. Ryans tore his Achilles’ in Week 9 and was already a pretty average player before the serious injury. Anytime you have a player on the wrong side of 30 and are able to wash your hands clean of him without a dead-money charge, he becomes a candidate for release. The Eagles may give 2014 first-rounder Marcus Smith a look next to ILB Mychal Kendricks if they let go of Ryans. But odds are probably better than even that Ryan keeps his job. Smith is already shaping up as a potential bust.

With The 20th Pick In 2015 NFL Draft ... -
Mock Drafts mean absolutely, positively and, ultimately, nothing. But we eat ‘em up. We love them. They help us fill the void during this quiet period in the NFL, and they create conversation and debate about "risers" and "fallers" leading into each spring’s NFL draft

Steelers on Jason Worilds: We will see where the market goes | ProFootballTalk
The Steelers used the transition tag on outside linebacker Jason Worilds last year and paid him $9.754 million to tie for the team lead with 7.5 sacks. According to General Manager Kevin Colbert, they haven’t ruled out using the same tag, which would cost them around $11 million, again next year. Colbert said that they haven’t ruled out anything else either as they decide how to approach retaining Worilds with the start of free agency a month away.
