PRE-DRAFT PARTY NEWS: We will be at Delilah's on Wednesday, April 26th for a BGN Radio PRE-DRAFT Party and broadcast. Stay tuned for more updates on the actual draft party on the night of the draft!

Special guest interview: Colorado CB Ahkello Witherspoon

Did Adam Schefter really help Alshon Jeffery sign with the Eagles?

Possible Eagles target Fabian Moreau tears his pectoral on the bench press at his pro day.

Gareon Conley is starting to get a lot more buzz and we’re not sure why.

Teez Tabor’s game seems like a better fit in this defensive versus Conley’s game but either one shouldn’t be taken at 14

We chat with Ahkello Witherspoon:

"I really like to focus on my footwork. I take great pride in being agile and mobile and not just rely on my God given athleticism. So when I am lining up across a wide receiver I really work my feet and let my hands and length take over …"

Turron explains why being ‘in phase’ is so important for corenrbacks and especially for a guy like Ahkello

Chidobe Awuzie, Ahkello’s teammate, has compared his game to ***Brian Dawkins***

Mike Mayock has started separating outside corners and nickel corners in his rankings… are we at the point where nickel corner is just as important as outside cornerback No. 1 or No. 2?

Jalen Mills as the starting nickel isn’t "disrespect" -- it’s probably where he should be playing.

Sidney Jones says he’ll be ready to go this season, does that really make a difference for his stock?

John: "I think the only way Jones ends up on the Eagles is if they take care of their first two picks and somehow jump back into the late second round."

Dalvin Cook or Christian McCaffrey ... Who ya got? How much different is the tape?

Dalvin Cook has fallen pretty hard in the public eye after the NFL Combine but Turron reminds us that his tape is real and you shouldn’t stray from that.

We take your questions!

- With the depth at running back I would pass on McCaffrey and take Alvin Kamara in the second. I think they're both third down backs. Thoughts?

- If someone the Eagles really like falls to say 10-12 do you think they trade up?

- The Eagles need a pass disruptor at defensive end badly. No one worthy at 14 (#OJHowardTrain)!!! Who must we draft to fill that void and with which pick?

- If Jamal Adams falls in the draft, do you take him over a top wide receiver on the board or a guy like Conley at 14?

- What round do you think Eagles should draft a running back?

O.J. Howard is in the company of Julio Jones, Odell Beckham Jr., A.J. Green…. and Darius Heyward-Bey

What should you be looking for when you are looking at a pass rusher?
