No? Good, because this Philadelphia Eagles seven round mock is sure to test that. I used all the brain power at my disposal to ensure each pick is perfectly crafted and I only ask that you hold your applause until the end.It’s only right that I do this after taking the cowardly way out with my recent fan vote mock. The results did not go over well and hopefully this one is more of a crowd pleaser.Obviously the landscape is shifting on a near hourly basis, but consider this as an opportunity to learn more about the players the Eagles could select. Or, and this is key.. use it to hurl vicious insults at my evaluation prowess. Bonus points and an auto-rec to the first “glad ur not the gm” comment. How could I deny such powerful and creative insight?TO THE MOCK!FIRST ROUND – 25TH OVERALLNASIR ADDERLEY – Safety, Delaware (5’11 3/4”, 206)The Eagles’ have shown an early interest in bolstering their defensive backfield by bringing in Florida safety Chauncy Gardner-Johnson on an official visit. Gardner-Johnson has been my highest riser when I revisited his film, boosting his grade to a first round value. He was off the board, but I ended up grabbing my highest rated safety anyway.Adderley has some of the best film you’ll come across in this class. In coverage, he shows the requisite range to play single-high, the short area explosiveness to click and clack on intermediate routes, and the ability to mirror receivers when playing closer to the line. Pro Football Focus’ Draft Guide has Adderley’s 2018 coverage stats as the following:395 snaps, 23 targets, 7 receptions (30.4%), 74 yards, 0 TD, 4 INT, 1.3 passer rating (1st), 34.8% “forced incompletion percentage” (3rd).Against the run Adderley displays the physicality and tackling form needed to fill the alley. Adderley’s film study is readily apparent and it pairs nicely with his ability to react and redirect on the fly.Adderley is the perfect piece to plug into Jim Schwartz’s heavy MOFC coverage schemes.SECOND ROUND – 53rd OVERALLYODNY CAJUSTE – Offensive Tackle, West Virginia (6’4 7’8”, 312)The “Bodyguard” Jason Peters’ return made pulling the trigger on this selection easy. Cajuste has some technical refinement needed in his game, but the overall package is one you want to work with as an offensive line coach.Cajuste has the nimble feet, heavy anchor, powerful punch, and grip strength to win consistently on the blindside. Once he gets his hands on you and plants his roots, it’s over. His set points are still a work in progress due to the heavy quick sets utilized in West Virginia’s scheme, so there is some projection involved.What isn’t a projection is his ability to move bodies in the run game. He engulfs linemen and linebackers alike with a surprisingly high hit rate at the second level. That aspect bodes well to working within both gap and zone schemes.From The Draft Network’s Joe Marino:SECOND ROUND – 57TH OVERALLDRU SAMIA – Offensive Guard, Oklahoma (6’4 3/4”, 305)Here’s what we know about the Eagles’ situation at both guard spots headed in to the 2019 NFL season.Brandon Brooks is recovering from a late-season achilles tear.Isaac Seumalo was extended on a team-friendly deal that puts a heavy onus on him to perform if he’s to be retained.Stefen Wisniewski has been set free.That’s a shaky situation both short and long-term. How can the Eagles fix that? By bringing in a four-year starter with tackle experience from one of the best lines in the nation. Despite being undersized Black Malcolm Jenkins Jerseys , Samia has the functional strength, technical refinement, and play speed to excel in a zone heavy scheme. He’s a tone setter with a nasty disposition and projects as a quality starter that will be a key piece of an offensive line for years to come.Samia is one of my favorite linemen in the class and a great fit for the Eagles’ scheme.FOURTH ROUND – 127TH OVERALLKHALEN SAUNDERS – Defensive Tackle, Western Illinois (6’0 3/8”, 324)Remember the backflip guy at the Senior Bowl? That was Saunders, who possesses rare flexibility for a giant human being. His flips weren’t the only thing that caught my attention in Mobile, as he had a fantastic week that significantly boosted his stock.Saunders was able to bully lower levels of competition, which is a plus and a box checked if you’re concerned about that kind of thing. If you’re still concerned, the aforementioned dominance at the Senior Bowl should help. The downside is that he often relied on his strength and athleticism to win without significantly developing his technique. With the right defensive line coach, Saunders has the potential to develop into well-rounded and dangerous 1-tech in a 4-3 front.FOURTH ROUND – 138TH OVERALLDEVINE OZIGBO – Running Back, Nebraska (5’11”, 222)Without a significant addition in free agency to date, the Eagles should have a close eye on the running back class. Ozigbo’s experience in zone concepts at Nebraska, paired with his quick feet and finishing power bode well for his future success in Philadelphia.Ozigbo is built like a Chevy big-block engine that will thrive in short-yardage and red zone situations. Instant upgrade over the backs of his type on the Eagles’ roster.FIFTH ROUND – 163RD OVERALLBEN BURR-KIRVEN – Linebacker, Washington (6’0”, 230)The recent addition of former Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker LJ Fort provides depth to the group, but let’s give it a little more. Burr-Kirven is a lighter linebacker with the competitiveness, football intelligence, and coverage skills to eventually work his way into a specialty role. The early return will be his contributions on special teams.SIXTH ROUND – 197TH OVERALLBRETT RYPIEN – Quarterback, Boise State (6’1 5/8”, 210)I’m of the mindset that you should always be looking to add youth to your quarterback room. If you take a swing and miss, so be it. If you hit on a project that can act as a spot starter and eventually use as trade bait, even better. Rypien is a guy with the mechanical polish, poise, and accuracy that I’ll take that chance on.From The Draft Network’s Kyle Crabbs:The two undrafted free agents I’d call right away would be Northwestern State wide receiver Jazz Ferguson and Nevada EDGE Malik Reed. Ferguson measured in at 6’4 5/8”, 227 pounds and ran a 4.45 40-yard dash. Reed is said to have crazy high football character and his 6.89 3-cone matches the bend I saw on film.Here’s the final haul all together:www.draftnetwork.comThink you can do better? Post the screenshots of your haul by using The Draft Network’s Mock Draft Machine. And while you’re at it, go ahead and grade this bad boy. Let’s get to the Philadelphia Eagles links ...Predicting 2019 Vegas win totals, over/unders for all 32 NFL teams - ESPNProjected over/under: 9.5 wins. With the Carson Wentz tempest quickly struck down on Twitter by what seemed like most of the Eagles’ locker room Malcolm Jenkins Jerseys 2019 , Philadelphia should have no issues contending again in 2019. The concerns with Wentz are instead about health and what the Eagles do if their star quarterback can’t stay on the field in 2019. Nick Foles will likely leave for a starting job one way or another this offseason, and the Eagles might not be able to afford a significant replacement, given that Philly will have about $4 million in cap space after Foles comes off the books while Brandon Graham, Chris Long, Ronald Darby, Jordan Hicks and Darren Sproles all hit unrestricted free agency. The Eagles would benefit from a Cowboys decline, although by DVOA, the 2018 team was the worst edition of the Doug Pederson era and finished with the exact same DVOA -- 0.0 percent -- as the Giants.What the Eagles should do at defensive tackle - BGNThere’s a zero percent chance Jernigan returns to the Eagles in 2019 under his current projected cap figure of $13 million. The Eagles should have interest in retaining Jernigan at a much lower number, however, provided they believe he’s at full health. Perhaps the two sides can agree on a one-year, prove it deal. The Eagles would get at least one more year of Jernigan (potentially at a discount) and Jernigan would get to test the market in 2020. I mean, how could you not want to keep this guy around as a potential starter next to Cox?Eagles Stay or Go? - BGN RadioJohn Stolnis and Brandon Lee Gowton take a peek at the off-season as they try to figure out which Eagles will be staying or going when decisions are made.. PLUS, McLeod restructures, Long is mulling it over, and Super Bowl talk!Eagles stay or go: Jim Schwartz and Mike Groh - PhillyVoiceIt astounded me that in the aftermath of the Eagles’ playoff loss to the Saints, fans were calling for Schwartz’s head. That was an utterly insane reaction to the way that game played out. The Eagles were already missing five defensive starters heading into that matchup, and throughout the game they also lost Fletcher Cox, Brandon Graham, Michael Bennett, Chris Long, and Rasul Douglas at various points. And still, Schwartz’s defense held the best offense in the NFL to 20 points. Excluding a meaningless Week 17 game, the Saints previously scored 40, 21, 43, 45, 48, 31 Black Zach Ertz Jerseys , 31, and 23 points in their other home games this season. Schwartz is among the best defensive coordinators in the NFL. Here are his DVOA rankings when he has just focused on the defense, since 2007.Mac is Back - Iggles BlitzThe Eagles might not need to add any DBs in the offseason. That would allow them to focus draft resources on the DL, RB and WR, as well as possibly OL. The one bit of good news from having to play so many DBs in 2018 is that the Eagles might have found some young guys they like. LeBlanc looked like he could be the answer in the slot for years to come. He was a real natural in there. Tre Sullivan got better as the year went along. He proved to be a functional role player. I think he’s got upside beyond that, but he needs to keep improving. Maddox was terrific at multiple spots and the Eagles simply need to figure out where to play him. Douglas played the best football of his young career. Did he show enough to make the coaches see him as a future starter? The Eagles secondary is far from a sure thing, but there is a lot of potential in these players. It will be interesting to see how all of this plays out.Type-A Tom Brady, as he goes for his sixth Super Bowl win, is still the template for NFL quarterbacks (see: Carson Wentz) - InquirerQuarterbacks of all stripes have won Super Bowls. But they often have personalities that can be described as Type-A, and often Type-A-plus. Brady is the epitome of that personality type.Paul Worrilow: ‘I’m Excited To Re-Write This Story’ - PE.com“I love the Birds,” said Worrilow, a University of Delaware product and a Delaware native and resident, on Wednesday night after agreeing to terms on a one-year deal for 2019. “It’s where I want to be. The way they treat the players, they way they make the players feel part of the team even when they’re hurt, like I was, it’s special. I’ve been around teams where, if you’re hurt, you’re hurt. For me this season, the team did everything possible to make sure I felt like I was part of the team and helping out.”Offensive Tackle Class Shaping Up To Be Great - The Draft NetworkThis paradigm makes this year’s OT class all the more shocking. I just wrapped up work on Florida OT Jawaan Taylor, who has exploded onto the scene in recent weeks as more analysts got into his film. Wow. A Top-20 player for me, without hesitation. As it stands, I’ll likely have four Top-20 tackles this season, which is more OTs than I had in the Top-50 of the past two seasons. Alabama’s Jonah Williams (8 OVR) and Oklahoma’s Cody Ford (10 OVR) are vying for the top spot, Taylor and Wisconsin’s David Edwards will be comfortable Round 1 grades for me with great athletic profiles, and West Virginia’s Yodny Cajuste peers in from an Early Round 2 evaluation. Given how valuable the position is on the field, drafting Cajuste in Round 1 doesn’t hassle me at all. Five. That’s five tackles I would love to take in Round 1.Todd Gurley says Rams won’t be using the Philly Special - PFTOf course, maybe Gurley’s comments constitute part of the setup. With the Patriots already likely to assume that no one would try the gadget play that burned them in Super Bowl LII, selling them on the notion that Goff is more like Tom Brady (who dropped a pass in last year’s Super Bowl) than Nick Foles (who caught a touchdown pass after suggesting the play to coach Doug Pederson) would make Bill Belichick and company even less inclined to suspect shenanigans.Breaking?: Dolphins expected to move on from Ryan Tannehill - The PhinsiderEven Salguero writes Zach Ertz Jerseys 2019 , in the next paragraph, “That Tannehill part is not news. That was decided toward the end of last season...” But, tonight, it is “breaking” news, and apparently people now realize something we all have known for a while: The Miami Dolphins are moving on from Ryan Tannehill this offseason. [BLG Note: Nick Foles to Miami?]DeSean Jackson Has To Go - Bucs NationSecond, we all knew about this guy’s ego, but his absolute lack of self-awareness and accountability is second-to-none. All year long - outside of the first two games - he bitched about his role in the offense and how he didn’t click with Winston. He made the case for Ryan Fitzpatrick to continue to be the starter, just so his own stats could be bolstered. Hey, Desean, here’s a thought: How in the f%!$ to do you expect to develop chemistry with your quarterback if you don’t practice? You are one of the fastest players to ever play in the NFL, most quarterbacks will have to develop some type of rhythm with you in order to create chemistry. There is no doubt that the uber-talented players get away with more in the NFL, but to sit there and expect entitlement - especially when none of your teams have won a playoff game since 2008 - is absurd and ridiculous.NFL NETWORK TO TELEVISE 19 ALLIANCE OF AMERICAN FOOTBALL GAMES IN 2019 - NFL CommunicationsThe Alliance of American Football and NFL Network today announced a multi-year programming deal that will include live event coverage of The Alliance inaugural season. NFL Network will debut their Alliance coverage with The Salt Lake Stallions at The Arizona Hotshots on Sunday, February 10 at 8 PM ET/5 PM PT. Following The Alliance’s opening weekend, NFL Network will air two games per week in primetime on Saturday and Sunday night.Chip Kelly Says Kaepernick Should Be In NFL, ‘He’s Ready To Go’ - TMZ SportsIn fact ... Chip tells us he’s under the impression Kap could try out for a team TODAY -- and still impress. ”I think he’s ready to go.” Of course, the league’s commissioner says otherwise ... Roger Goodell just told reporters he believes it’s Kap’s skill set -- not his politics -- that is keeping him from playing. But Chip tells us, “anybody that wants a good quarterback” should sign him.Super Bowl Player Rankings - RotoworldJared Goff hasn’t been quite himself as a fantasy quarterback to close the season and that has rolled over into the postseason a bit as he’s notched 8.6 and 14.9 fantasy points against the Cowboys and Saints. His NFC Championship game did come with peripheral positives, however, throwing for 297 yards and 7.4 yards per pass attempt. Also, like Brady, Goff hasn’t faced much pressure. Goff was under pressure for just 32 percent of his dropbacks in the regular season (19th highest) while that number has been just 23.6 percent the playoffs against the Cowboys and Saints, trailing only Brady this postseason. Still, over his past seven games with the Rams playing better defense and becoming more run-oriented, Goff has managed just seven touchdown passes to eight interceptions while throwing for 232 passing yards per game. Goff has thrown more than one touchdown pass in just one of those seven games.The complete Super Bowl LIII scouting report - SB NationRetired NFL defensive end Stephen White pored over all the tape of the Rams and Patriots.
