The penultimate BGN Radio podcast episode prior to the 2021 NFL Draft is here! Jimmy Kempski and I will be back early next week to break down our final Eagles seven-round mock drafts. In the meantime, we got together some listener mailbag questions. Show topics overview:


  • Biggest takeaway from Howie Roseman, Nick Sirianni, and Andy Weidl?
  • Is DeVonta Smith truly in play at No. 12?
  • Why wouldn’t the Eagles at least say Jalen Hurts’ name when asked about him?
  • “A united front”


  • You’re going for the RPS World Championship. Are you playing rock, paper, or scissors? (Jimmy and I have a thrilling battle LIVE on the pod)
  • Which is more likely? That Wentz was displaying disturbing traits behind the scenes so the Eagles drafted Hurts as an escape plan? Or that the Eagles drafted Hurts to be a cheap backup/Taysom Hill-type role player?
  • If the Eagles drafted Justin Jefferson last year at 21, are we even talking about taking a WR at 12 this year?
  • Who’s the guy on today’s roster who plays longest with the Eagles?
  • (All these and more)


  • Assessing the values of Zach Ertz, Andre Dillard, John Hightower, and others
