[News] Who Makes Jump From 2016 Draft Class?

419 posts in this topic

Smalls staying healthy would be nice. Still, take a look at the RB corp, then at Doug's penchant for running between the tackles. Just not doable and we need a starter. Howie either needs to clear some cap and grab Blount (30) as a band-aid or draft a starter or get a post draft castoff or get a bunch of udfa's and hope for the best.

Read that re: Barnett. One of the reasons he may not be there at 14, although that means 3 DE's taken before 14 which is also tough to fathom.

Cam Robinson was not the only OT in the SEC that stated that Barnett had more moves that Garrett. There was a Tackle that I said I liked a good while back from Arkansas Dan Skipper (probable 4th or 5th round pick this year) who said the same thing. He would rather go up against Garrett than Barnett because Barnett had more moves to get around him.

So what did Wentz say since this site here discriminates against the deaf by not captioning Livestream

Was watching Wentz on press pass. Guy has the patter down but did have a few things. He did work out w/ specialist mainly on footwork, supposedly not on throwing motion. Drives me nuts when he holds the ball down around his waist, augh! Also said he just met Torrey for the 1st time today but had dinner w/ Alshon. He did throw around a little w/ guys from the same agent, but took the time off from throwing. Says he feels great - onward!

Not much GB. I could ask better questions than some of those reporters.

Usually I am the fan who is not as optimistic as others on this board when it comes to the first round of the draft but not this year. I actually believe this year the Eagles are going to have a hard time deciding which player to take in round one because I think three or four players worthy of the pick will be there when it is time to choose. The way I am looking at the first round this year is we have the 12th pick in the draft and possibly the 11th if three QB's are taken high instead of two. It is unimaginable to me that they won't have the opportunity to take a top ten player if they choose to. I won't even try to guess who that player might be anymore because of that. It should be a good one though.

A little celebration is ok, these choreographed things are an abomination to me - act with some maturity and like you've done your job.

I think that Wentz' & J.Matt's celebration is TOTAL CLASS! Jenkin's & McCleod even did it after an INT.

That's half the deal this yr, getting the grinder. Doug runs up the middle. Our OL is better, but no OL can give completely clean alleys these days. Need the guy who doesn't depend on a clear path and can break a few tackles yet still get yds once free. That guy's not currently on the roster. except maybe Watson just returning from surgery. Still need another. Passing can get us so far, ground and pound closes the deal.

Also a RB that doesn't 'tip the hat' to the D as to if the O will run or pass.
