A DT of Interest - Iggles Blitz
Bennie Logan is gone and the Eagles haven’t made a move to replace him. That tells you they are probably focusing on the draft to add a DT. The Eagles haven’t had a lot of visits or workouts with DTs so far, but they have one coming up. Ryan Glasgow makes a lot of sense for the Eagles. He has a good frame at 6-3, 302. He can bulk up if he wants or keep that lean build to help him stay quick off the ball. Glasgow is willing to do the dirty work. He is a good run defender. Glasgow uses his hands really well and knows how to shed blocks. He is a better athlete than you think. Glasgow isn’t going to wow you, but I thought he showed really good agility at the Combine. He hustles. You will see him chasing the ball out wide or downfield.
Eagles defense will have at least five new starters in 2017 - BGN
Who will step up?
Here are all of Nick Foles' pass attempts in 2016, with analysis - PhillyVoice
Foles’ numbers were good, but they should have been better because he missed two easy touchdown throws. He missed Charcandrick West on a swing pass that couldn’t have been more wide open. Pop Warner throw. He also missed a wide open Tyreek Hill in the end zone when he threw behind him. Big Red was visibly annoyed after that throw (not shown).

Dane Brugler from CBS Sports joins the Journey To The Draft Podcast to talk about how Christian McCaffrey makes sense for the Eagles with the 14th pick in the draft.
2017 NFL Draft: 10 thoughts on the Eagles - NJ.com
The Eagles have no excuse not to come out of the Draft with at least one stud running back. With options like Texas' D'Onta Foreman, Pittsburgh's James Connor and Tennessee's Alvin Kamara all likely to be available after the second round, the Eagles will have plenty of chances to hit on a running back that can come in and play right away next season. In fact, the Eagles might be wise to leave the Draft with two new running backs on their roster, considering how thin they are at the position right now, and how many great options there should be throughout. If the Eagles don't have a stud rookie running back on the roster next season, executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman hasn't done his job.
Eagles should stay away from running backs in first round - CSN Philly
Ezekiel Elliott was the fourth overall pick by the Cowboys in the 2016 NFL draft. He went on to have a historic rookie season, leading the NFL in rushing behind the best offensive line in football. But do you know who finished second in the league in rushing? That would be the Bears' Jordan Howard, another rookie, drafted in the fifth round. If you keep going down the list of the league's top rushers last season, nine out of the top 10 on the list were drafted after the first round. Only three backs in the top 10 were drafted in the first two rounds (Elliott, LeSean McCoy, Le'Veon Bell).
Le'Veon Bell, Derek Carr among top Round 2 picks since 2012 - NFL.com
Alshon Jeffery learned how to run routes and get off the press, solving the two issues I had with him heading into the draft. He's great at playing the ball in the air, makes catches in traffic and can run after the catch. Jeffry is kind of like Jerry Rice in that he doesn't have great speed but knows how to keep people from running him down from behind. When healthy, he's productive, as we saw with back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons with the Bears in 2013 and 2014. Chicago kept him around on the franchise tag in 2016 but allowed him to walk this offseason, and he was signed by Philadelphia to a one-year, $14 million pact. He has a history of injury troubles with his lower body, but I expect the Eagles will work on getting him stronger.
PFF scouting report: Michael Roberts, TE, Toledo - Pro Football Focus
Roberts may be limited athletically, but his big body and run-blocking ability have a place in the league. He knows how to use his body to create just enough of a window to move the chains and become a strong red-zone option while providing strong run-blocking at the point of attack.
