    I’m sure Howie wants that 2nd 4th rd comp pick in his pocket.  If no other transactions bring it back, he could look to fill that 3rd S spot with a younger S that has starting experience but not part of his current team’s future plans that may be available for a lower pick (like a 2020 6th) and then cut Sendejo.  Basically trading Sendejo and a 6th for a different S and a 4th.  

    I pretty much expect Sendejo will get cut... he was not a strong signing... Just some security... Easily replaced

    I probably would have preferred to trade one of those 2nd rd picks for any early 3rd and early 4th and draft Henderson in the 3rd instead of Sanders then have that extra early 4th to grab another player ... a S or LB.  

    I think Eagles were very high on both Sanders and JJ... And just did not want to risk losing out... 

    If you have not yet watched JJ post draft interviews,  check them out... Gonna take me a while to get the spelling of his last name correct... But he is one heck of a great story... Highest of great character!

    If they are claiming they stuck to their board, I might have to question their process of talent evaluation that led to a board where Sanders was ranked ahead of CJG, Adderley, and Thornhill.  :ph34r:

    Heard slash read Sanders had great Pro day,  really impressed folks... I think they made a good call drafting Sanders... Not sure what rest of NFL was thinking when it came to RBs in this draft... We're they really that bad a class?

    They seem to field 3 LBs less than any other team.  Maybe that’s by default due to resource allocation.  Maybe that’s because of scheme.  Safety seems to be more important in Schwartz’s system.  Which makes not addressing S even more surprising than LB.  There were some talented safeties that fell much further than expected just sitting there for the taking - I thought for sure we’d pounce on one.

    Yeah,  that too... 

    I was very surprised they drafted both a RB and WR in the 2nd round... Not disappointed mind you,  just surprised... 

    Think they got themselves two special players in that 2nd round... 

    Gotta figure something is in the works at safety and LB... Just as they had that delay in the Howard trade

    Regarding thought #10, I do think Howie will find a way to recoup that 4th rd comp pick lost with the Sendejo signing.  If none of our own FAs sign elsewhere before May 7th (which I think is the likely situation), then I’m guessing he’ll be looking to add another S ... perhaps someone younger that may be available for a lower pick (e.g. 2020 5th or 6th) that has some starting experience and may have potential for a longer term role here.  

    Gotta think something is in the works at LB... If there was no such thing as injuries,  OK... But they have experienced so much injury with LBs... They can't possibly be overlooking that position so grossly... 

    I like the recent trades and draft... But geez... LB remains a concern in this RB dominant NFC East

    I don't think WR in the 1st - if I were a betting man it would be on DL or OL.  But I do think, depending on how the board shakes out, that both RB and WR could be in play with 53 and 57.  I certainly wouldn't rule out both.  Find out in 7 days.  :-)

    Don't know why but I spend a lot of time reading draft articles...

    Lotsa bs out there...but I believe a lot of the DL conversation...

    I can see the Eagles trading up as high as 9, with DL on their minds...

    Hard to figure who they have their hearts set on...

    Montez Sweat and Christian Wilkins are the two guys that jump off the page...with Ed Oliver not far behind, depending on if you believe stories he had bad interview with Eagles...

    Read over and over this is bad RB class...if they do not draft Josh Jacobs...I think they trade for Browns Duke Johnson...

    I don't know about WR in the 1st but I do think it is prudent to add one considering this is likely Agholor's last year and the expectation that it will take a WR a year or 2 to get up to speed to make an impact. And I would prefer to avoid any of the "what can he do vs what was he asked to do" type of prospects. Let's grab someone with proven ability.

    I think they want to draft an offensive weapon in 2nd round...and are looking hard at both RB and WR...with the thought of selecting one of the two high, but not both...

    Two possibilities come to mind:

    1.  A post draft FA signing that doesn't count against the cap (Ndamukong Suh?) or

    2.  Wentz contract (less likely given the injuries)

    Agree with you,  I think they are positioning for a post draft fa signing

    AAF players left stranded with nowhere to live

    Many of the players who signed on with the Alliance of American Football were in temporary housing arranged by the league, and when the league pulled the plug they had nowhere to go.

    Understandably, players who were signing on for a 10-week season at relatively modest salaries didn’t buy houses or sign year-long leases in the cities where they were playing, and some of those players say the hotels and apartments the AAF arranged for them kicked them out just as soon as the AAF canceled its season.

    Rich Ohrnberger, a former NFL player who was working as a radio analyst in the AAF, wrote on Twitter that "Players in Memphis came back to their hotels after news came down, and had their personal items waiting in the lobby. Kicked out of their lodgings.”

    Memphis fullback Anthony Manzo-Lewis wrote on Twitter that he had already been kicked out of his hotel room and had no idea where to go. Teammate Brandon Silvers replied that he had a few more days at his Airbnb and would let Manzo-Lewis crash with him.

    Ohrnberger also wrote that the players who suffered injuries are now on the hook for their own medical expenses going forward. Gionni Paul of the Salt Lake Stallions wrote on Twitter that he’s concerned after breaking his arm in the AAF. Some players indicated that they’re looking into filing workers’ comp claims.

    That the AAF is folding so abruptly, with so little consideration for the players, does not speak well for chairman Tom Dundon or founders Charlie Ebersol and Bill Polian. The league needed a better plan in place for how to survive — and how to handle it if the league couldn’t survive.

    Wow,  that is some harsh stuff!

    Other than 40 time everything else about him has really stood out. And didn't he redo his 40 at the second Bama pro day and went sub 4.6! And I'm not even a huge Jacobs guy.

    He might Not be the guy I would pick,  given the option... But think this is what Eagles do in round 1 this year... 

    So much so,  I think they want a stud RB so bad... They would be willing to trade up to secure him... If they feel the need

    If they miss out on him... I think they trade back... And go WR,  with their 1st pick
