Day 3 NFL Combine preview: Edge rushers to watch who could interest the Eagles - PhillyVoice
Bud Dupree, Edge rusher, Kentucky (6'4, 269): Dupree is considered a high character guy with excellent athleticism and hustle. He also has experience as a stand up edge rusher, which makes his projection to a 3-4 scheme much easier. Obvious potential Eagles target.

At combine, Marcus Peters owns up to maturity questions - CSN Philly
"I live and I learn from it, you know?" he said. "There are going to be things that aren’t going to go right, but I went through one of the worst things that could happen to me in life. "I got kicked off my team, I wasn’t able to finish out my college career with my teammates and I own up to that and I man up to that and I just move forward." Peters wouldn’t expound on exactly what happened between him and Petersen, who left Boise for Washington following the 2013 season after Steve Sarkisian left Washington for USC. "Just miscommunication," he said. "Mostly on my behalf. I didn’t take the coaching transition too well."

Campbell blazes path from Germantown to the Combine - Daily News
Ibraheim Campbell was the youngest of eight brothers growing up in Germantown, an experience he acknowledges helped him along his path from Chestnut Hill Academy to Northwestern to the NFL Scouting Combine, where Campbell is viewed as a midround pick. Three of his older brothers played college football.

Free Agents That Could Interest the Eagles - EaglesAddict
CB Davon House, 6′ 195 lbs, 25 years old, Green Bay
One INT, one FF and 10 passes defensed in 2014.  Has been primarily a backup in Green Bay with only 14 starts in four seasons.  Has size, speed and loves to be physical with receivers in man coverage.  Could be seen as an up-and-comer who needs a chance to start. Could also be a cheaper option since he hasn’t been a starter.  Also plays on special teams, which you know Kelly will love.  I’d really watch for this guy if he hits the open market.

QB Spotlight Soon To Have Answers - PE.com
It is the position everyone wants to discuss: Quarterback is in the spotlight for the Eagles, understandably so, and will remain so until the team clears up some questions the fans and media are asking.

Sabin: With 20 free agents, is roster stability a possibility for Cowboys? - Dallas Morning News
Less than six weeks after the Cowboys’ first playoff run since 2009 ended, they are staring at a roster that has 20 free agents and will be remade in some form or fashion before the first game is played. How dramatically different it ends up being is the question.

Vic Beasley demands your attention - SB Nation
It doesn't matter how many times you told your friends and followers that 40 times are just a media conspiracy and that the Combine just "doesn't matter." While you were grinding tape Sunday morning, defensive linemen were putting on a pretty impressive display of athleticism -- especially Vic Beasley. The Clemson defensive end got started Saturday bench pressing 225 pounds 35 times and nobody else in his position group had more. Beasley produced a 4.66 on his first 40 attempt. On his second, he ran a 4.53 -- FOUR FIVE THREE.
