Paul Hudrick’s second seven-round ridicule breeze for the Eagles in 2016 is here. There are some-more options with a Eagles now holding a No. 8 collect in a initial round. The 2016 NFL breeze takes place in Chicago from Apr 28-30.
First spin (8th altogether (from Dolphins)): Ronnie Stanley (6-6/312), OL, Notre Dame
I summarized a realistic possibilities for a Eagles during No. 8 when a trade with a Dolphins became official. When we put out my first-round ridicule breeze 2.0, Stanley fell to a Eagles. It’s positively probable that a Ravens will obstacle Stanley during No. 6, though Ozzie Newsome has had so most success by drafting a best actor accessible (in this box Oregon’s DeForest Buckner), regardless of need. In a Eagles’ case, Stanley could be both. Really, this is roughly a can’t-miss conditions for a Eagles with a options they’ll have. Much some-more so than picking during 13. If Stanley is gone, Florida dilemma Vernon Hargearves would be a glorious pick. The Eagles could afterwards spend a after collect on an interior lineman. Don’t nap on Ohio State using behind Ezekiel Elliott here, either.
Third spin (77th overall): Bronson Kaufusi, (6-6/285), DE/OLB, BYU
Kaufusi is huge. He is also unusually athletic, spending some time during outward linebacker and dropping into coverage. It wasn’t always flattering for him in space, though he was prolific as a pass rusher, induction 10 sacks and 18½ tackles for a detriment during his comparison year. He’s a small bit of an comparison prospect, carrying spent dual years on a Mormon mission.
His athleticism was on arrangement during a mix where he ran a 4.87 40. Pretty considerable for such a vast human. He needs a small work in a technique department, though he has a ton of earthy ability. The some-more we watch of him a some-more we like him. He unequivocally usually creates one pierce and attacks, that would seem to fit Jim Schwartz’s intrigue well.
Kaufusi rotating with Vinny Curry, Connor Barwin and Brandon Graham? You might have something there.
Third spin (79th altogether (from Lions)): Xavien Howard (6-0/201), CB, Baylor
Howard is prolonged and physical, usually like final year’s second-round collect and reputed 2016 starter, Eric Rowe. He’s aggressive — maybe too assertive during times. He takes a ton of penalties from being a small too handsy down a field. He also lacks “elite” speed, using a 4.58 40 (he did run a 4.41 during his pro day).
He was prolific and showed off his spin skills during Baylor, induction 9 picks during his sophomore and girl seasons combined. It’s engaging in examination Howard how mostly Baylor left him on an island though most reserve assistance over a top. He let adult his satisfactory share of low balls since of it. He is glorious during removing his hands on receivers during a line and disrupting a timing of routes.
The biggest NFL comparison is Byron Maxwell. we know, we know. But suppose a younger chronicle of Maxwell, during a most reduce cost tag, grown in Schwartz’s system. The Eagles have also invested a ton of income in a reserve position. A dilemma like Howard that excels in press coverage should advantage from improved play behind him. With a abyss a group has during a dilemma position in 2016, Howard won’t have vigour to play right away.
Fourth spin (100th altogether (from Titans)): Paul Perkins (5-10/208), RB, UCLA
Perkins is intensely shifty. He’s not a biggest and might not be an every-down back, though he is a large play watchful to happen.
I can’t assistance though consider of what Jamaal Charles was means to do in Doug Pederson’s offense in Kansas City. Perkins might never spin into a Pro Bowl behind Charles has become, though he was prolific and durable notwithstanding his size. His numbers went down a small in 2015 (6.3 yards per rush in ’14, 5.7 in ’15) though he still ran for 1,343 yards this deteriorate and his touchdown sum went up. He also held 80 balls during his time with a Bruins.
Fifth spin (153rd overall): Jacoby Brissett (6-4/231), QB, NC State
Brissett would have a been a good fit for a prior regime, though we consider he can work as a developmental plan with a stream staff, too. He’s tall, jaunty and has a large arm. He’s accurate on brief passes though is a small unsuitable on a low ball. His biggest smirch is that he hangs on to a spin approach too long, approach too often, though his escapability can lead to Randall-esque plays.
His execution commission altogether wasn’t good (59.7 percent), though he did take caring of a football. The Florida send threw 43 touchdowns to usually 11 interceptions during his time during NC State.
Brissett has chosen earthy tools. He’d be surrounded by a slew of former quarterbacks on a coaching staff and would have a span of veterans with him on a abyss chart. As a fifth rounder, he’d be underneath no vigour to start right away. He’ll have copiousness of time to develop.
Fifth spin (164th altogether (from Steelers)): Joe Dahl, (6-4/304), OL, Washington State
Dahl is a sole survivor from my initial Eagles’ mock. There’s zero special about Dahl. His distance isn’t quite good and he’s expected improved matched for a inside. He’s a decent contestant though not a good one. He’s usually a good football player. He played really good as Washington State’s left tackle and rubbed himself flattering good opposite some of a chosen pass rushers in a Pac-12. He helps continue to chaperon in a girl transformation along a Eagles’ descent line.
Sixth spin (188th overall): Demarcus Robinson, (6-1/203), WR, Florida
Robinson has red flags galore. He was dangling 4 times during Florida and his prolongation was inconsistent. He’s not a good track runner, his 40 time wasn’t fantastic (4.59) and there’s word that he “bombed” a talk process.
If you’re still reading this, we guarantee we it gets better. Clearly there are some majority and concentration issues with Robinson. But his distance and explosiveness on a football margin are intriguing. He flashed large time in a Gators’ win over Ole Miss this deteriorate hauling in 8 passes for 98 yards, including a 37-yard touchdown.
This is a man Chip Kelly would have never touched, though in a sixth round, he could be a take if he gets his act together. Also, we can’t suppose Howie going this whole breeze though holding a Gator.
Seventh spin (233rd overall): Kyle Friend, (6-2/308), OL, Temple
A small adore for a internal kid. Like Dahl, Friend doesn’t have ideal size, though he was a really good football actor during Temple. He’s smart, tough and crazy strong. He also offers flexibility with a ability to play ensure or center. He was a group captain and was named first-team all-conference. we went behind and watched some-more fasten on Friend. His game opposite Penn State is impressive. The Nittany Lions were a disaster this year, though a one thing they did have is an considerable front four, including a intensity first-round collect in defensive tackle Austin Johnson. Friend did good to get his hands on his assignment early and showed his strength, generally in a run game.
Seventh spin (251st altogether (from Cardinals)): Quinton Jefferson, (6-4/291), DT, Maryland
Jefferson has an interesting story. He’s been prolific during his time during Maryland. During his comparison season, he earned honorable discuss All-Big Ten honors, recording 12½ tackles for loss, 6½ sacks, an interception, and a blocked kick. In a NFL, he’s expected usually a rotational actor in an attacking-style defense. He would seem to be a fit for Schwartz and a Eagles could use some abyss during tackle.
