Barnett Feels The Love As Eagles' 14th Pick

13 May 2017

The winningest head coach in Eagles history chose quarterback Patrick Mahomes II of Texas Tech, who wasn't invited to the draft.

Barnett also slipped because he was slow. You're telling other teams hey you want eleven.

A Douglas pick sends you scurrying through the scouting guides. "I couldn't have even guessed that I was going to come here and that Reggie White played here".

Barnett is the first Vol drafted since 2014.

This is a great fit for both Barnett and the Eagles. The combine stuff is window dressing.

That definitely smoothened her path to Rio Olympics victory where she stunned World champion and record holder Genzebe Dibaba. The 28-year-old Kenyan will be challenged by countryman Ferguson Cheruiyot Rotich, last year's Diamond League victor .

"What jumped out about Derek is his ability to finish at the top of his rush", said Joe Douglas, the Birds' personnel boss. "I think it couldn't have worked out any better for the Vikings with what happened in the first round if (running back) is going to be a focus moving forward".

"We're looking at numbers; we're not anxious about what's going to happen in August". He might be the best pass rusher in this class. One-hundred sacks later, Suggs still has a job.

Douglas and Jones provide much-needed competition at cornerback, though Jones will miss at least the first few games.

Jones, 6-0, 186 pounds, was one of the targets the Eagles had in the first round before he injured his Achilles during his personal pro day in advance of the draft.

"When you have to walk to McDonald's in the snow and you order five things and you eat two of them at 12 o'clock and you save the other two dollar-menu things for later on in the day, I think that was one of my craziest days", he said on Saturday, when he met reporters a day after being taken in the third round. Matthews is expected to be released once cleared from his injury, Sproles is in the past year of his contract at the age of 33, and Smallwood is coming off an average at best rookie season. Douglas' technique admittedly needs work. Boise State's Jeremy McNichols, South Florida's Marlon Mack, and San Diego State's Donnel Pumphrey are all on Eagles fans watch list. So understand that even though I've achieved some noteworthy things and won some individual awards, they are not what drives me. "You're talking about a guy who broke Marshall Faulk's records". He's a great ballplayer, and he has great hands. And he plays that way. "That's why I play football". I'm not the 6-5, 285 [pound] defensive end who runs a 4.5 [second 40-yard dash], so I feel like I have to get my edge mentally.

Full 'Flower Moon' to rise in sky tonight
The Ontario Native Literacy Coalition describes the Flower Moon season as a period to explore "spiritual essences". The moon will appear biggest as it is rising above the horizon, then appear smaller higher in the sky late night.

Too slow to play safety, Nate Gerry (Nebraska) will get a look at linebacker with the Eagles. "He can close", Douglas said.

Thank you, I really appreciate it. He was an athletic guy that could range all over the field. "So I think players ought to shut up and let the front office make those decisions". Gibson is a fifth-round pick.

The Eagles have already allocated a large amount of their salary to the defensive line between Brandon Graham and Fletcher Cox.

"When you see a guy that shows up in big moments... see a guy that plays in the best conference in all of college football show up week in week out and be as consistent as he is, it's a big factor".

The Eagles aren't the only NFC East team to like their draft.

Dorrian only said weapons that can penetrate armoured vehicles would be included among the deliveries. Ankara is also enraged by US plans to arm the Syrian Kurds, who they consider terrorists.

The Eagles signed Alshon Jeffery over the offseason to be the all-around dynamic threat to take Wentz's game to the next level, and he'll get every chance to do so in 2017 as they aim to decide whether he's worth a long-term investment next offseason.
