I’m trying to understand Howie’s plan, a crazy pricey brown state, a Dallas court prediction and the most anonymous eagle in history.
Just a taste of what’s in store for you at Roob’s Random Eagles Offseason Observations this weekend!
1. Part of me thinks that the plan should be to get out of the first round in two weeks with the receiver and cornerback. Because 1) Eagles have not yet spoken significantly in any position. Reddick, and 4) WR and CB are strong positions where the eagles pick up the middle of the first round. But Howie Roseman is not like going to the locked draft in drafting for the need, he was right about that. This is a dangerous path when you reach out. So did he support himself in a corner and force himself to draft WR / CB at 15 and 18? Here’s my conclusion: Roseman, who did not draft in the first round, is confident he can field a first – day opener in the second round, giving him the flexibility to go either direction with those first three picks instead. Locked in WR / CB with the first two. And – surprisingly – history says he may be right. In comparison, Roseman drafted much better in the second round than in the first round (I know, I know, low bar). Since he became GM in 2010, he has produced 12 players in the second round, most of whom are starters or key contributors: Nate Allen, Michael Kendricks, Zach Erds, Jordan Matthews, Dallas Goddard, Miles Sanders and London Dickerson – and Jalan in one way or another. Only Juan Jared, Vinnie Curry, JJAW and Sidney Jones have made any small or any impact as new players, and we know Jones will not be playing as a new player due to his Achilles injury. Five of his 12 second-round players started double-digit games as rookies. And five of his 10 1sSt.-Round rounds have started double digit games. He actually swings and misses the first round (Fireman Danny, Marcus Smith, Derek Bornett, Andre Tillard, Jolan Reeker) better than the second (Jared, JJAW). The Eagles will be No. 51 in the second round, and good 2ndRound value at corner, receiver and edge. As it turns out here, eagles may have a better chance of hitting 51 nails than 15 or 18.
2. John Hertz has had more seasons in his career than Troy Aikman with 26 integrated emergency and passing touchdowns.
3. No one in NFL history has achieved 150-yards of fast performance before the age of 22.nd Birthday than Price Brown.
4. In 2013, Nick Falls averaged 14.2 yards per close. This is the highest in the NFL in the last 15 years.
5. Devon Allen21St.After finishing fourth in the Olympics at the Diamond League Final in Zagreb, Croatia last September, the fastest 110-meter hurdles player in world history was 12.99. Allen slammed Olympic gold medalist Hansley Parchment of Jamaica and advanced to 12th place in U.S. history, overcoming a 42-inch hurdle. But if Alan Eagles made the list, he would not be the fastest hurdle in NFL history. Renault “Skates” Nehemiah, who went to Scotch Plains-Fonwood High School in Central Jersey, set the then world record of 12.93 at the Welglass in Zurich in 1981, and 40 years later it is the ninth in world history. Ranked 7th on the All Time US list. Although Skates did not play college football, he decided to try for the NFL in 1982, and the Eagles were among the teams that worked for him. He signed with the 49ers, catching 754 yards over the next three years and 43 passes for four DDs, all from Joe Montana. In 1984 he won a Super Bowl ring. Nehemiah returned to the track in 1985, but never approached his pre-football time.
6. I would be shocked if the Dallas court did not go over 1,000 yards this year. It didn’t even go out a limb. If you pick up his product in 11 games and trade over 17 games after Zach Ertz trade, you will get 72 catches for 1,091 yards and an average of 15.1. How many tight end catches 70 passes with an average of 15.0 in a season? Crank.
7. Jalen Recore had 43 attacking touches last year – 33 catches, 10 runs. He scored five or fewer yards in the 17 games he played (11 catches, six runs). He became only 5 peopleTh Must have scored 350 or fewer yards in at least 43 touches a season in NFL history. The second was only made in the first round.
8. Sam Bradford Single Anonymous Quarterback in Eagles History? One thing he did here I don’t really remember. That was seven years ago. This is fun. He came, played, and left. And he’s not scary. He went 7-7 in 2015, in fact in his career he started more than two games and never got a losing record. He went into Dallas and beat the Cowboys. He threw 320 yards for three consecutive weeks. He equaled a franchise record with five 300-yard games. It’s crazy, but I’ve seen this, Bradford actually finished with at least 50 yards for five different players that year (78 for Jordan Matthews, 62 for Riley Cooper, 60 for Zach Ertz, 60 for Brent Selek and 53 for Nelson Agolor). In 2006 Donovan McNab was 50-yards for seven men (87 yards for Hong Basket, 84 for Donte ‘Stallworth, 60 for LJ Smith, 60 for Matt Schobel and 50-yards for Correll Buckholder. To Westbrook and Reggie Brown for 50). And get this. Bradford is the only quarterback in Eagles history to start 10 games in a season and play only one year in the Phillies. And the only one to start 14 games and earn $ 24 million. But for me he will always be the guy between Mark Sanchez and Carson Vents. Human footnote.
9. Most of the time Donovan was here and there was no one to throw. Five 11 years in the Eagles uniform, leading WR goals dot Pinkston Reggie Brown James Thrash  And Greg Lewis . St. Yikesville. After the D-Jack  And The next few are Kevin Curtis Torrance Small Charles Johnson  And Freddie Mitchell . What a set. He kept Brian Westbrook for seven years, and he got a hell of a lot. But up to the recipients? The big red did him no favors. It’s truly incredible that in the first half of 2004 and 2005 TO, Dzine in 2008 and 2009, and McLean in 2009 and Donovan in 2009 were able to achieve only 3 of their 11 seasons with proper WRs.
10. I warn you: at the end of the draft, you will get very sick with the phrase “he likes the ball”.
