Brandon, John, and Turron all attended Eagles OTA practice on Tuesday. We give you our observations and first impressions. (Check out BLG's practice notes here.)

Who were the most impressive players at the Eagles' first OTA practice? Spoiler: Alshon Jeffery, Derek Barnett, Mack Hollins, Tim Jernigan, LeGarrette Blount

It's early but Carson Wentz's mechanics look improved

More info on how Wentz looked in practice

Blount is really big, but he's also really fast. Also he's a badass dude.

Dorial Green-Beckham looks really bad (click here or watch below)

Nelson Agholor looks really good?! Maybe there's reason for optimism?

Shelton Gibson has been dropping passes. He might not see a lot of playing time as a rookie.

New Eagles wide receiver coach Mike Groh seems to really command the respect of his players

Nick Foles sure won't be challenging for the starting job any time soon

BLG thinks the Eagles' pass rush could be really good

Derek Barnett is already showing some promise

We answer your Eagles questions!

Does Mike Kaye or Marcus Smith have a better chance to make the Eagles roster?

Who was the best James Bond?

The Cardinals took David Johnson two picks after the Eagles drafted Jordan Hicks. Who would you rather have today?

Is Mack Hollins a future Hall of Famer?

Who has stood out the most in OTAs so far?

Who will the Eagles' starting cornerbacks be by the end of the 2017 season?

Final thoughts and more!
