Let's get to the Philadelphia Eagles links ...

Eagles were one of the healthiest NFL teams for the fourth year in a row - BGN
Sports science lives on.

NFC East first round 2017 NFL Draft grades - PhillyVoice
I like Engram quite a bit as a player, and it's going to be difficult for opposing defenses to cover Odell Beckham, Brandon Marshall, Sterling Shepard, and now Engram. However, pick 23 for him was a bit early, and while it will be difficult for opposing defenses to cover the Giants' skill players, the Giants will likely continue to struggle to protect against opposing pass rushes.

The New Corners - Iggles Blitz
3-year starter for the Huskies. Complete corner. Can cover, blitz, hit, tackle and make plays. Press corner who can be very physical with receivers. Smooth, fluid corner who can mirror receivers. Has good ball skills. Explosive when coming forward, whether to break on the ball or to tackle a runner/receiver. Good blitzer. Mostly played LCB. Jones is the latest in a line of good UW DBs. Marcus Peters and Desmond Trufant are outstanding NFL corners from Washington in recent years.

Eagles' Carson Wentz should get playmakers on Day 3 - ESPN
Executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman called the depth at running back in this draft class “historic” earlier this offseason. It’s safe to say, the Eagles feel like there is some value to be had in Rounds 4 through 7.

Draft Theme: Defense, Defense, Defense -
Free agency was a time to upgrade the offense. The draft, through three rounds, is all about the D.

Derek Barnett's college position coach: He can flip switch to 'monster' - CSN Philly
It's a small thing, thanking someone for cookies. But it's something that seems to exemplify the type of players the Eagles are focused on bringing into the organization, especially with new VP of player personnel Joe Douglas leading the draft charge. And it was the one of the stories that stuck out most to Steve Stripling on Friday morning, 12 hours after the pick was made. "He's got that in him," Stripling said to on Friday morning, just before boarding a flight from Philadelphia back to Tennessee, "and then on the football field, I've seen him just be a monster.

Eagles' Vinny Curry not threatened by Derek Barnett -
Things are going too well these days for Eagles' defensive end Vinny Curry to be bothered by the fact his team spent the 14th pick in the NFL Draft Thursday night to select a player at his position. "Not at all,'' Curry told N.J. Advance Media when asked if he was upset the team took defensive end Derek Barnett, of Tennessee, in the first round of the draft. "If he's a good player that will just make us all better. I think it was a good pick.''

Ron Jaworski can’t get the fans to stop booing Roger Goodell - PFT
When it comes to helping the Commissioner avoid the inevitable in-draft boo birds, the NFL tried a half-measure on Friday night. And it didn’t work. Roger Goodell brought former Eagles quarterback Ron Jaworski to the podium in Philadelphia to start round two. The crowd, which seems to be nearly as large as it was on Thursday night, didn’t pull back in the face of the bespectacled human shield. Instead, they continued to relentlessly boo Goodell.

NFL draft 2017: Best players available after Round 3 - SB Nation
SB Nation’s Dan Kadar ranked the top 100 players in the draft for us, and we’ll update this list throughout the remainder of the draft as players are taken off the board.
