You know what will happen if the Eagles pass on Foster at 14 stine? One of the better playoff teams in the lower first round will take him and instantly be a better ball club that we have to beatin the playoffs. I am hoping that if the Eagles pass on him at 14 that an AFC team selects him but the Redskins are suppose to be interested in him an Cook if they fall to them. Which player would you rather play against two times a year for the next 8 to 10 years. The other concern I have on passing up O.J. Howard at 14 is the fact that the Giants want him if he falls to them. That would make them a very tough opponent on offense to face twice a year with their existing receivers.

IMO Gnats go RB,they haven't had a decent one in quite awhile

BTW Gnats are in a great spot to take Caff(UGH)

Stine - rescinded doesn't mean it didn't happen. After that video I'm inclined to believe he could have done it before. Never met the guy ( a man would never do such a thing ), but I'm also inclined to believe if in those circumstances, he's capable of doing it again. He'd be off my board, not worth the risk.

I understand that, but you cannot assume it happened either. Look, I am not giving Mixon any slack. I read somewhere if a man hit a woman there is a 95% chance he does so again. Not sure if that is true, but that, in itself, would make me stay away for at least 2 rounds, maybe 3....

I hope Mixon get a chance with us... It is never acceptable for a man to strike a woman especially for Old guys like me and the generation I come from... There are two sides to a story. Miss Molitor history is one of a drug dealing criminal with a history of public intoxication followed by altercations.  Fortunately as a Privileged woman, Miss Molitor has never been held accountable for her actions. This woman was drunk and high and the video shows aggressively attacked Joe Mixon, spit in his face...used the N word. Struck Mixon repeatedly before he responded... all anyone sees, is the punch. Mixon was 18 years old when this happened... ooohhh and of course it was a Black Man striking a white woman. To take Mixons future away like some teams have already publicly stated for one incident by a 18 yr old. Funny any where else in America, if someone spits in your face, spew Racial epithets, and then repeatedly strike you... that is assault, Sooo how come Mixon was the only one charged, And  those charges ONLY happened weeks after the incident... they must have found out Mixon could be a potential 1 rd pick in the NFL,  either way I would bet that if Mixon makes a NFL team won't be the last he's heard from Miss Molitor.  I am sure they want to get paid to. My point is I hope my Birds do their normal due diligence. Whoever gets Mixon, will get a player with a Huge chip on his shoulder and something to prove.

If Foster is around at 14... hell yea ... get Foster in the first, every Draft... Aaron Rodgers, Larry Tunsel, Randy Moss... Reports come out about some problem with a top flight prospect that cause them to fall imagine.... Foster with Sean Lee playing in the Cowboys D. Nooooo I don't want to imagine that.

What are the gnats going to do for LT?

It appears that they will take Ramczyk if the two players they favor are gone. It also appears they will take the BPA if their player drops to them. Tackle or no tackle.

You could be correct since Coughlin is no longer there.

Looks like a fun schedule this year....Honestly right now game i am most excited for is Philly vs Oakland on Christmas......On paper could be one of the best games of the year

They just did this one so the announcers could go on and on about throwing snowballs at Santa.

We know they won't pass up the opportunity to mention it repeatedly.

OJ Howard does not make it past 10. I would be shocked if both were there at 14. Eagles will pick Foster if both were available I think...

Agreed,OJ is too big a playmaker to ignore to fall that far

I have read that 3 safeties could go in the first 13 picks. The same with DE's. Then you factor in Fournette in the top ten plus two QB's and one of the two WR's and its easy to see how O.J. Howard could fall to the Eagles along with Foster and Cook. Still say that the Eagles will have at least 4 guys fall to them that are worthy of the 14th pick.

Funny for most of the offseason many considered Fournette the top guy, now some experts see McCaffery being the first off the board. There will only be 13 players gone before we pick. Howie and Joe did Not take moving up or down off the table as an option. Fournette has been my #1 guy. However , if  Jonathan Allen, Davis, Howard, Foster, Barnett, Latimore are there...aaarrrrgh what do we do? Sooo many choices, This Draft is truly unique with the quality prospects that could be there for us.

Yep, I am not normally a betting man but I think it is a lock that the Eagles will have at least 4 players to choose from worthy of the 14th pick.

We will see. I still cannot imagine more than 1 QB gets drafted before us. Yes, Most Mocks have 2-3 S, 3 DE's, 1 RB, 1 WR and 1QB along with 1-2LB's and 1 TE.....

Well,I dunno,if two attack you with a butcher knives and your life is in danger what do you do? Don't condone hitting,but if my life is on the line,I do what I have to to survive

I forget where I read this but one of the NFL draft prognosticators has the Eagles trading down in the draft with the Texans. We get the 25th pick in the first round and the Texans second round pick 57th for the 14th pick.

I have heard some projections that Davis could fall out of the 1st, don't think he has yet to run his 40. Sounds like hogwash to me, I watched some tape on this guy, definitely a 1st round talent. Seems like the closer we get to the Draft the misinformation, misdirection machine is in full force.

Awful schedule.  No Thursday night or 4:25 games at home.  3/4 games on the road in Sept.  Brutal trip to West Coast.  Two away Sunday night games.  Seriously, NFL?  And who is the genius who said this looks like a fun schedule as a fan?  It's the opposite.  Limited tailgating at the Linc because most games are at 1:00.  Most of us HATE 1:00 games.  Even if you get there at 8:00 am you've got maybe 4 hours.  Oh well.  Gonna get plastered on 10/23 and hit the stadium as soon as it opens, I guess.  Go Birds.

Good possibility that Buffalo takes Davis. I think Williams could be on the board at 14.
