Fournette is a dozer runs guys over,Cook can do everything,although he fumbles too often.Either of those and we'd be set at RB for awhile without having to cough up dough in the next few years

Who would you compare Fournette too? Someone like an Earl Campbell? The Cook comparisons that I have read are sort of Marshall Faulk in nature but I actually believe Cook is faster than Faulk was. The skill set is the same though.

So IMO pick 14 will be a tough call.Knowing the birds they will draft an unknown(sheesh)

If it wasn't a tough call then we wouldn't be having this much fun debating it. Added into the equation is Joe Douglas's first time in the draft barrel. LOL We can't even rely on previous drafts as a template. Go get um Joe!

GBFL Okay, Lets make pick 14 a little easier to predict. All we need to do is come up with 14 guys that the Eagles feel are worthy of the pick minus any QB's or Safeties. I will start it off with the guys that I believe are worthy of the 14th pick in no specific order. 1.CB Lattimore, 2. TE O.J. Howard 3. DE Derek Barnett 4. WR Corey Davis 5. WR Williams 6. RB Cook 7. RB Fournette 8. LB Rueben Foster 9. DE Myles Garrett 10. OT Ramczyk

If teams take two QB's and two Safeties before the 14th pick like they are predicting then these 10 picks are all that is necessary. Give me one of these guys at pick 14. LOL

Why 14 guys? We can kinda figure the top 5-6 will be gone,then it gets interesting

See you guys are still stuck on waiting for this player later round or can get this guy if we trade back. If there is a guy we want take him move up if you have to.

Eagles got too cute thinking Wilson would be there 3rd round just like a lot of posters are thinking x player WILL be there. When Eagles were sitting at 20 watched the 6 guys they had rated go before their eyes. Hes even stated Eagles are in a good spot at 14.

Philadelphia Eagles
CB Ron Brooks - Brooks will return as the team's nickel cornerback in 2017 after missing the final 10 games of last season with a torn right quad tendon. The Eagles missed Brooks in the slot, allowing 260.6 pass yards per game when he was out compared to 204.3 when he was in the lineup

So how long does it take for a quad tendon to heal before it is back to normal?

Depends how badly it was hurt.Sometimes weeks,sometimes months.What they worry about is scar tissue

Didn't say that. But right now they don't have a starting QB I expect them to take the best QB available at 25 not a late round guy to groom.

So they wouldnt trade up to 14 to get a better QB?

It's an unrealistic trade partner that's like saying let trade with the Patriots and get their 2nd and their next 2 1st it's not gonna happen so look at realistic trade situations instead.
