I agree with some that QB should not be a Hot Button but if E.J.Manuel is around in the 2nd round he is an Eagle. This kid is a pocket QB that can run,can make all the throws and like Nick has great size and his speed.

The pick will be Milliner...possibly Star or Floyd depending on who gets taken 1-3.

@1wrangler: The Eagles suck in free agency.

If you don't know what you are doing, it doesn't matter at what number you choose.

Film doesnt lie. Yes they have health issues but Star's is my only concern. As long as he get a pass to allow him to play. The guy is a beast. MIlliner is my pick tho and to see him run a 4.31...Its a lock IMO.

Dion Jordan was a TE before Chip move him to the defensive side. Jordan played as a NT (0 technique), DT (3 technique) and DE/OLB (5 technique), also covers TEs in the quick play routes. Jordan mentions that there is a different mindset playing on the line and playing on the edge, especially with the added sense of coverage. He is mobile enough and uses his strength and quickness to attack up the line or as a disruptor on the edge. Kelly looks for players to contribute in a variety of roles that can give the best edge of advantage over other teams, as it may not work with some other teams. Versatility is the key and if Billy Davis don't catch onto it, Kelly might have to bring in Aliotti in next year to replace him.
I'm not putting Davis down but in the books, what has he seen in the defenses he had to work with. Let's see how he understands Azzinaro and the rest of the staffs, to learn and spot talents and place those talents where it can maximize the personnel strengths as the year progresses. I'm willing to give him that chance to develop ways of using personnel talents. Castillo was experimenting by putting pieces where they weren't maximizing, but he wasn't that far off, he was new to the defensive side. I'd say he did a pretty good job in learning to recognize talents by experimenting. Bill can't be experimenting with Kelly, he should be able to see talents as they develop. He's the mastermind behind his core group, like a game of chess, each pieces has it's own unique moves to use, as the strength of the fortification. Bill should understand each positions and be able to place talents where they should be. I have no idea why he lasted this long in the NFL, but I hope this is his turning point with Chip.

To get a good return for trading down a few picks there has to be a player that a team is dying to get. There isn't that kind of player at the front of the first round. There is no way a team moves up a few spots to 4 and gives us a second round pick for it. There isn't that kind of talent available.
In my opinion, this draft should play out well for what we should be targeting. That was before we released Patterson and Jenkins. With the holes we have, letting them go was bordering on insane.
In the first round, we should simply take the best offensive linemen available. Tackle or guard. To me the guy here is Chance Warmack without a doubt. Best football player in the draft.
Second round is where I really start to disagree with everyone. We need at least one starting safety. Matt Elam should be available here. If not, we take the best safety not named Reid (that guy is the most overrated player in the draft).
Round 3 should be about getting another safety or adding depth on the o line. Look for us to take S Tony Jefferson from Oklahoma in round 4 if he is there. Would be a steal if he is.
