Philadelphia Eagles select Derek Barnett

11 May 2017

If you're not sure how you feel about the Eagles' draft, ask yourself how things went for the franchise when they kept signing veteran free agent cornerbacks.

Once the chants of E-A-G-L-E-S ended, the Draft got underway and the Eagles went to work.

"I was rooting for the best player available", Pederson said, "the most talented guys to make our roster better".

A Douglas pick sends you scurrying through the scouting guides. In so doing, they made the defensive end out of Brentwood Academy the first University of Tennessee player taken in the first round since Eric Berry in 2010.

This pick seems like a flashback to when the Philadelphia Eagles selected Brandon Graham with Earl Thomas still on the board. But he won't get traded until another team misses out on a linebacker they wanted in an earlier round and decides to trade for Kendricks.

Jones won't be ready in September, so the Eagles took another cornerback in the third round because they need to replace departed starters Leodis McKelvin and Nolan Carroll.

Real Madrid in Champions League final
Juve have conceded only three goals in the entire tournament, whereas Real Madrid kept just one clean sheet, conceding 17. It's a long road, and to do it two years in a row, you have to congratulate this squad.

The closest was in 2004, when Sheppard and Dexter Wynn were 23 and Matt Ware was 22. "Then I got here [to WVU], and my junior college All-American stats didn't matter".

"He doesn't want to back off anyone". He played at LSU, in the SEC, against top-level competition. It is likely Jones could sit the entire 2017 season out, so the Eagles made this pick for the future.

The Eagles believe Jones will be an National Football League star. And the prospect of having foreign at staying in state is great but I I'd suggest can not pull the trigger on offense a player for this team.

Douglas, Jones and Hollins are part of an Eagles' draft class that, at least on paper, appears to be an impressive haul.

"We did expect that at the 14th pick there would be some good players there", Roseman said "The names may have been different than we anticipated".

"We're looking at numbers; we're not anxious about what's going to happen in August". Ryan Mathews may have staved off the reaper, as the team did not draft a prototypical three-down running back to take his place.

Last season with the Tennessee Volunteers, Barnett showcased why the Eagles are so high on him.

He'll still only be 21 years old. And why was it, anyway, that they weren't more prepared to make a move up before all the top playmakers were gone? "And there are some other teams (in the second round) looking for a guard". The club has a history of whiffing on pass rushers, having come up empty so far with 2014 first-rounder Marcus Smith, and having paid a ton of money without much production from Vinny Curry.

Philadelphia has done a fantastic job hosting the NFL Draft, and the Eagles have almost matched that effort through their first three draft picks.

Numbers wise, Douglas had some of the best of any corner in the draft. Jones, when healthy, will cover the faster deep threats and Douglas will generally be assigned to the bigger wideouts. You shouldn't even be drafting other positions outside of that unless you have all four of them locked up.
