Eagles News: Philadelphia is an ‘ideal fit’ for Drake London

Let’s come to Philadelphia Eagles connections …

2022 NFL Draft: Best scheme suits Drake London, Jameson Williams and other Day 1 WRs – Reuters Sports News
London plays tenaciously throughout their game. There are even times when USC would use him as a de facto blocker on race concepts. That kind of versatility only adds to London’s value at the next level, where blocking from the wide receiver position unlocks the running game and entire offenses. This tenacity also shows when he has the ball in his hands. London have no qualms about lowering their shoulders and trying to crush defenders. Ideal fits: Jets at No. 10, Eagles at No. 15 or No. 18. Any team needing a ball winner with inside and outside versatility but not desperate for speed at receiver.

Bleeding Green Nation improves Eagles DL with Jordan Davis at No. 15 – BGN
Why wouldn’t you want to take a chance on a 6’6”, 341-pound defenseman with those kind of athletic tools? Especially when you consider that Davis only started playing football in his sophomore year of high school and just turned 22 in January. There are reasons to believe that it has not yet reached its ceiling. Davis is obviously more than just a training warrior. He was a dominant inside presence for the national champions. That might not be reflected in the stat sheet with just two sacks in 14 games. And just seven sacks in 41 total games at Georgia. But its impact obviously goes beyond the box score given the extra attention it commands; it cannot be regularly blocked in singles. Also consider that Kirby Smart’s program hasn’t exactly produced prospects with significant sack numbers (see: Devonte Wyatt with five in four years, Travon Walker with 9.5 in three years).

A first look at the quarterback class in the 2023 NFL Draft – Reuters
When the Philadelphia Eagles traded one of their three first-round picks for future draft ammunition, including an additional first-round pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, they likely revealed they weren’t thinking much. to the 2022 quarterback class. If Jalen Hurts doesn’t make a substantial jump in 2022, the Eagles will most likely be a player in the 2023 quarterback draft class, which should be deeper and more talented. “If you don’t have a conviction on one of these quarterbacks [in the 2022 draft], I think you’re putting the banner up for sale and trying to do what it looked like Howie Roseman did, where he traded and picked up an additional 2023 first-round pick,” the former GM said. of the NFL, Mark Dominik, during a conference. call Sirius XM radio. “He did it last year in case Jalen Hurts wasn’t what he wanted, and he did it again, so now if he needs a quarterback, he has ammo to get one.”

How the Eagles would make history with another 1st-round wide receiver – NBCSP
Everything points to the Eagles throwing it and doing it again. How can they not? If they take a receiver in the first round, they’ll become just the second team in NFL history to draft one three years in a row, and if they take one in the first or second round, they’ll only be the fourth team to take a receiver in the first or second round for four consecutive years. […] If you need a wide receiver, you can’t get around a potentially elite receiver who’s only available because of previous failures. The Eagles have to keep trying. And they have to stop missing.

Man vs. machine: Predicting the Eagles’ first-round NFL draft picks at 15 and 18 – ESPN
McManus: Jordan Davis, DT, Georgia. Davis is most likely to go 14th overall at the Baltimore Ravens, depending on the predictor. If he’s available at 15, he makes a lot of sense for the Eagles. We know they build their teams from within. They like players who can collapse the pocket and generate pressure on the quarterback in the gut. And the man who’s done that for them for the past decade, Fletcher Cox, could very well be on his way out after this season. The 6-foot-6, 341-pound Davis anchored an elite Georgia defense and posted stunning numbers at the combine that included a 4.78-second dash for 40 yards. He not only has a chance to be one of the best players in this draft, but he would fulfill a specific role in this hybrid scheme. Gannon wants a demolishing nose tackle that eats blocks and will make life easier for the rest of the unit. Davis is quite capable of that and has the physical tools to blossom into a threatening passing thrower.

Which veteran free agents might be on COs’ post-draft radar? – Haven of Pigs
Tyrann Mathieu, Security. Mathieu wanted to return to the Chiefs but he was not offered a contract. Based on comments he’s made recently, I think he might be open to signing a 3-year contract worth around $30 million, which wouldn’t leave much room for structuring from the ceiling. Since joining Kansas City in 2019, he’s played more than 600 snaps in deep, box and lunge lineups, and he rarely steps off the field, averaging more than 1,000 snaps per regular season since 2017.

Stephen Jones Said Dorance Armstrong Was “Right There” Production-wise With Randy Gregory – Blogging The Boys
This is, to be frank, absurd. Gregory and Armstrong are by no means “right there” with each other, with all due respect to the latter. How can we confidently claim this to be true? I don’t know, maybe because the Cowboys themselves were on the eleventh hour of giving Gregory a contract worth $14 million a year? If Dorance Armstrong really was that player who was so close to Gregory in terms of production, then why did the Cowboys even go the route of bringing Gregory back at all? They contradict each other in the name of concealing their offseason moves.

Kadarius Toney, James Bradberry absent from voluntary Giants practices – report – Big Blue View
Bradberry’s absence should not be taken as surprising or unexpected. The veteran cornerback has been the subject of trade rumors and due to the team’s salary cap situation, Bradberry remains unlikely to make the Giants’ roster in the 2022 season. It would be surprising for Bradberry to do anything with the Giants that isn’t considered mandatory. Toney is another matter. After a less than inspiring 2021 rookie season that saw him play in just 10 games and miss a ton of practice time due to COVID-19 and various injuries, as well as skipping some of the volunteer work at the Last year, the 2022 season is important. for the 20th overall pick last year.

2022 NFL Draft: Which prospect might not be a first-round pick, but SHOULD be? –
Marc Ross: I’ve been saying Skyy Moore is my favorite player in this year’s draft for months. With other wide schools set to go in the first round — guys like Jameson Williams, Drake London, Garrett Wilson and Chris Olave — Moore was an under-the-radar prospect early in the pre-draft process. He can match any of those aforementioned guys in terms of sheer production, playfulness, intelligence and footballing skills. The versatile receiver has the talent and confidence to be a winning starter no matter where he is drafted.

Will Desmond Ridder participate in the first round? – Football strangers
Jameson Williams: The conversation around Jameson Williams’ draft stock would be much simpler if he hadn’t torn his ACL playing in the College Football Playoff National Championship game against Georgia. He would likely be WR1 instead of WR3 (who suffered a less horrific injury earlier in the college season) if that injury had never happened. I believe that this rise in the Grinding The Mocks rankings is partly due to the “Christian Kirk” effect – essentially, the inflated values ​​of wide receivers, both in the bizarre contract that Kirk signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars and also in the high commercial value that elite position players such as Tyreek Hill and Davante Adams have commanded this offseason. Combine that with the impact of rising stars such as Justin Jefferson and Ja’Marr Chase and it makes sense that NFL teams are reassessing the value of drafting higher wide receivers, especially those with Williams’ skills. . To think, to have playing time, Williams had to leave ohio state, where he was behind current WR1 Garrett Wilson, WR4 Chris Olave and likely future WR1 Jaxon Smith-Njigba. It doesn’t hurt that Williams himself has said he’s ahead of his rehabilitation schedule following ACL surgery.

[BLG Note: The Eagles did not put a claim in on Boykin. If they did, he would have went to them right ahead of Pittsburgh’s spot.]
