Mock Draft Roundup: 11 first round options for the Eagles

Who will the Birds take?

The 2019 NFL Draft will be here before you know it. Mock draft season is in gear and there’s no shortage of opinion as to whom the Philadelphia Eagles might select with the No. 25 overall pick. Let’s take a look at which players the experts have the Eagles taking this week.

Doug Pederson is reportedly recovering from a lower body injury

Get well soon, coach.

Not even the head coach was spared from a 2018 Philadelphia Eagles season filled with injuries. NFL insider Ian Rapoport reports Doug Pederson recently underwent foot surgery:

As we head to Arizona for the NFL Annual Meetings, one note: #Eagles coach Doug Pederson underwent foot surgery on a nagging ailment & will be hobbled this week, source said. No timetable, but he should be ready for the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship in Tahoe ? ??

Eagles sign old players; will probably die during a spring heat wave

As has been covered over the last few days, the Eagles have signed some older players — Andrew Sendejo, Desean Jackson, Vinny Curry are all over 30 years old, just as re-signees Brandon Graham, Jason Peters, and Jason Kelce are.

While there’s a warranted concern about player age, I think it circles less around the idea of “The Eagles...

Report: Eagles will host Darnell Savage on pre-draft visit

S-s-s-s, a-a-a-a, f-f-f-f, e-e-e-e, t-t-t-t, y-y-y-y

Maryland safety Darnell Savage is set to meet with the Eagles on an official pre-draft visit in Philadelphia, according to Jeff Zriebec (hat tip to @IgglesNest). I’m guessing this local meeting doesn’t count against the 30 visit limit considering Savage is a Newark, Delaware native.

The 5-10, 198 pound Savage is on the smaller side but that didn’t prevent him from being a productive college player. In four years with the Terrapins,...

Report: Eagles will host athletic Boston College offensive lineman on pre-draft visit

Boston College offensive lineman Chris Lindstrom is one of the 30 prospects from the 2019 NFL Draft who will be hosted by the Eagles for a visit in Philadelphia, according to Darren Wolfson (hat tip to @eagles_empire).

Eagles offensive line coach/run game coordinator Jeff Stoutland got a close up look at Lindstrom during BC’s pro day earlier this week.

NFC East Positional Power Rankings - Center

Well this one shouldn’t be a surprise.

Today we’re going to be covering one of the most underrated positions in the sport. The center is one of just two players who touch the ball on every snap and usually acts as the captain of the offensive line. It’s because of this importance I saved this position for last among the offensive players.

The Eagles continue to foster a locker room culture that draws players to the team

It says a lot when guys would rather be in Philadelphia than anywhere else — especially when they had other offers.

The Eagles have been putting in work lately to secure some of the team veterans — Jason Peters, Brandon Graham — and have even brought back a few familiar faces including DeSean Jackson and, most recently, Vinny Curry. More than the team wanting to lock in these guys is the fact that they all (except Jackson who was traded) chose to come back to the Philadelphia locker...

Examining Carson Wentz’s past and future

The QB Scho Show #18!

Carson Wentz is coming off what many saw as a “down year” in 2018. Considering his MVP candidate-worthy 2017 campaign and his offseason recovery from major knee surgery, it shouldn’t have come as much of a surprise. What’s being lost in all of that is that Wentz still played at a high level for stretches of the season and projects favorably into next year.

On The QB Scho Show #18, me and Mark Schofield dug into Wentz’s 2017 and 2018 seasons to analyze where...

Eagles proposed to change an unfair advantage the Cowboys currently possess

But then withdrew it.

The Philadelphia Eagles versus Dallas Cowboys rivalry exists even during the NFL offseason.

The 2018 Super Bowl champions recently submitted a league resolution proposal that would attempt to rectify an unfair advantage that the Cowboys (and Detroit Lions) currently posses. Here’s the proposal (hat tip to Pro Football Talk):

RB Jay Ajayi reportedly in the mix to hook up with Colts

Although the Colts met with free-agent running back Jay Ajayi this week, there’s no deal imminent, per Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (Twitter link). However, Indianapolis does plan to continue talking with Ajayi, which suggests it could look to sign the ex-Eagle down the line, according to Rapoport.  Ajayi, 25, is arguably the best back still available on the open market after Le’Veon Bell, Tevin Coleman and Mark Ingram came off the board during the first week of free agency.

TCU edge rusher L.J. Collier is one of the 30 prospects from the 2019 NFL Draft who will be hosted by the Eagles for a visit in Philadelphia, according to Jared Tokarz from NFL Draft Insider.
