Projecting the 2021 NFL draft’s top wide receivers: Why DeVonta Smith stands alone - ESPN+
Smith has a monster projection that leaves everyone else in this draft class in the dust. Smith’s projection is all the more impressive considering that he gets a significant penalty for entering the draft as a senior. Smith is by far Playmaker’s highest projected...

Study claims Eagles fans get drunk and high less than you might expect

Photo by Mitchell Leff/Getty Images

A big surprise.

Philadelphia sports fans, Eagles fans in particular, get a bad rap. They’re characterized as drunken, angry, aggressive freaks. Some truth is in that certainly. While it’s annoying for every national TV broadcast to bring up Santa Claus and snowballs, there is a sense of pride in being the most wild people in the world.

Given that, imagine the confusion I felt when seeing a study from Lines about what fans consume the most booze and...

The Team

The Dallas Cowboys had a (dare I say) elite offensive line from about 2014-2016 (or 2017, depending on who you read),...

More buzz about Philly acquiring Houston’s star quarterback.

The Philadelphia Eagles continue to be linked to a potential Deshaun Watson trade.

This much despite the fact the Houston Texans quarterback is facing 22 lawsuits alleging sexual assault and/or inappropriate conduct.

The latest tidbit comes from Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio, who wrote the following in an articled titled “Could the Eagles be lurking for Deshaun Watson?” on Friday....

Ranking the top 20 wide receivers in the 2021 NFL Draft

Jesse Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

With the 2021 NFL Draft only a few weeks away, teams are finalizing their evaluations and building their draft boards. So are the folks in draft media. This wide receiver class follows the trend of deep, talented groups of pass catchers to come out in the last year. Here is how this group stacks up. (Note: Kyle Pitts is ranked as a tight end.)

1. Ja’Marr Chase, LSU

Ja’Marr Chase didn’t play this year and still sits atop this class given his rare blend of...

Outside the top three picks of the 2021 NFL Draft, no pick is more of a sure thing than the Lions taking a WR. While debatable whose is worse, the Lions are unquestionably bottom two with the Eagles in terms of worst WR corps in the NFL. The best of the bunch, Tyrell Williams, made a name for...

What does Eric Wilson’s arrival mean for the other Eagles linebackers?

The Eagles have a very young and inexperienced linebacker corps but arguably one that is loaded with unharnessed potential. From undrafted heroes like Alex Singleton and T.J Edwards, to last year’s draft selections in Davion Taylor and Shaun Bradley, there’s certainly a lot of upside for new defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon to play with.

In addition to signing Eric Wilson, the Philadelphia Eagles officially announced they’re re-re-signing Jordan Howard.

I like the Wilson signing! This one? Not as much.

Here’s what we previously wrote about Howard in February:

STATS: 18 snaps, 7 carries, 27 yards, 3.9 average, 0 TD ... 0 targets ... 0 fumbles

REVIEW: The Eagles added Howard to their practice squad when they were 3-6-1. They wasted touches on him instead of seeing what they...
