  • Official Eagles Draft Day Thread

    I am creating this thread now. Any comments about the Eagles draft picks, trades, etc. should be posted here and here only. We are trying to keep the discussions in one place. Keep them here. We can have separate threads about signings and other things, but keep the draft day stuff in this thread. I will be locking or merging all other draft day threads into this discussion, so stick with this thread. Thanks!

      Good idea, I expected something like this. ^^^I would prefer Griffin over either of those two.

        If the Eagles draft Ted Ginn, Jr. at any spot besides #26 overall, I will be very upset.

          As a side note, we can discuss draft wants and needs in other threads. This thread is meant for Saturday and Sunday. I don't want to come back and see 18 draft day threads.

            I figured that is what you meant, but clearing it up was probably a good idea.

              Here's something encouraging:

              http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2...erbacks/070425

              Safety is the safest position in the first round historically, only 11% of safety picks have been busts.

                That is interesting, I wasn't aware of that. Are they pretty close to the top of the list in terms of the safest pick?

                    Good. But from now on I think we should try to wait to use this discussion until Saturday.

                      Draft Day

                      First of all, I'm not an avid writer on the Eagles message board, but I enjoy reading everyone's opinions. We're easily the most knowledgeable group of fans in the NFL. We're passionate about our team, and it reflected in our writings on this message board. I would often go on other team's message boards and see them come up with these unrealistic, unreasonable trade scenarios for there particular team to trade up or down. You don't see nonsense like that on here and for that I commend everyone.

                      Second of all, I would like to make a point that the Eagles know exactly what they're doing on draft day. I think a majority of us can agree on that. We've had our bumps and bruises with guys like Freddie Mitchell and Jerome McDougle, but I'd like to think we've made up for that with guys like Donovan McNabb, Shawn Andrews, Lito Sheppard, Sheldon Brown, Brian Westbrook, Todd Herremans, Trent Cole, and Reggie Brown to name a couple. Let's all remember the infamous McNabb Draft Day and how mad many of us were. Then let us smile at the fact that we got one of the best QBs in the league, and the guy we wanted is now attempting to be reinstated back into the league. This further proves my state that the Eagles know exactly what they're doing on draft day.

                      If it's a DE, don't fret. Darren Howard is aging, Kearse is continually hurtin, and McDougle may not be with this team much longer. Anthony Spencer had received many props from Big Ten lineman. Jarvis Moss, although not great against the run, is extremely fast and has much upside and has been compared to Jevon Kearse. John Fox said it best in regards to his selection of Julius Peppers over Joey Harrington: "You never pass up on an elite pass rusher." In regards to Moss and Spencer, I suppose you never know if that could be the case.

                      If it's a LB, no worries. Sure, we seem to have a nice starting 3 with Trotter, Spikes, and Gaither. Trotter is running on his last legs. Spikes is older, and was hurt recently. Gocong is waiting in the wings, and we'll see what his role will eventually be. The way I look at it with this position, it'll help build for our future as well as our present. Trotter and Spikes will be gone in soon time. Beason, Timmons, Posluszny can all play and help form a very nice trio with the likes of Gocong and Gaither.

                      If it's a CB, then it's all good. Joselio Hanson and Will James have 1 year contracts. Houston or Ross could provide nice special teams play, good play in particular packages, and can be groomed to be nice nickel backs and eventual starters. We drafted Lito and Sheldon when we had a good group of DBs, and that worked out well for us before. Why couldn't it again?

                      If it's a S, then we'd all be smiling. Dawkins will have to call it quits soon. Considine is still learning and getting bigger. Whether it's Michael Griffin or Brandon Meriweather, I think we'll all be happy regardless of who it is. Each of them have their knocks on them, but each of them have such a tremendous future that lies ahead of them. I will not be disappointed with either one. Heck, if we selected Eric Weddle I would be happy. Not many people would, but this is the guy who limited Calvin Johnson in the Emerald Bowl 2 years ago. He's a smart player. He lacks flash, and he isn't the "sexy" pick. But this guy intercepted many balls, and took them to the house for TDs. I don't care who you are, that's a tough thing to do. So if you hear his name, don't worry, be happy.

                      To reiterate my point, the Eagles know what they're doing. I have full confidence in them on draft day, and I hope many of you do as well. We're very lucky to be cheering for a team that doesn't have many gaping holes. We have options. We can build depth. We can build for the future. We can build an entire 2nd string defense for rotation purposes. We can do whatever we choose to do, and not many teams are that lucky to do so. We're in good hands Eagles fans. With that being said, Fly Eagles, Fly.

                        Great post. I merged this into the draft day discussion to limit the threads. Hope you stick around because your work is fantastic.

                            I think there's a 0% chance of us takin Ted Ginn Jr. or Dwayne Jarrett. I think the signing of Curtis made a statment that their receiving core is set to enter the season unless they take a later round pick which is likely.

                            What do u think the chances are of us going after Brian Leonard?

                              There is no need to get a RB in round 1, and I think he could be gone by the time the Eagles pick in round 2. Not likely to happen.
