I don't think theMcCoy deal was an error, at least at the time - Kiko disappointed, but if he could have played up to his rookie year (unknowable at the time) that is a valuable guy.

I don't understand why people don't think this trade was a steal. Foles was a throwaway, as he demonstrated this year and most of last year. A 2nd round pick for a potential franchise QB is a move...

I'm ok with Shurmur - he's been a head coach before and though not successful, I don't think you can peg him as the problem - he had Colt McCoy as his QB. At least he's hopefully made the real...

I can see dealing the pick but only to someone like the Jets or Raiders in exchange for two 4th rounders - Jets have 4 and 14 in the round and the Raiders have similar but a few picks later. Maybe...

WTF with this pick? Why not trade down?

McShay:

80. Marcus Smith, DE, Louisville (Grade: 71): He is a savvy pass-rusher who makes the most of his above-average quickness, and does a solid...

Awesome. Be happy to have him in the 2nd or 3rd round if he lasts, could be a star. Will root for him wherever he goes (other than Dallas or NYG!)

I like the way you think, AW, but a few minor points:

- Barkley is less than worthless - he won't be in a trade. I could see dealing graham and next years #1 for Jordan but if they do that Chip...

this is my thought - I think it will be Cleveland. They will select one of Watkins/Clowney or Mack at #3 - they will still need a QB and the run (if I had to guess) will start right around where we...

You've obviously not seen Lattimer play. First round talent. 6'3" with good speed (sub 4.5), willing to block and can outmuscle for the ball. I'd be thrilled to get him after 21 along with another...

Terelle Prior is a moron who hasn't shown any ability to read defenses. Sanchez any day of the week and twice on Sunday.

I think that the pick will be Cody Lattimer from IU, and that it will happen 10-15 picks after currently scheduled and that the Eagles will pull In a pick or two extra in a trade down.

I like Lattimer, he's got good size and decent speed at 4.5.

With DeSean being cut, WR is certainly in play for BPA in the first round.

Perhaps we see Marquis Lee with the first pick - he might be good enough to replace DeSean immediately for less money...

Plausible 4 round Eagles draft?

1st - Calvin Pryor (Lville) S - paired with Jenkins, a good one/two punch (hopefully) at safety

2nd Kyle Van Noy (BYU) DE/OLB - backup Cole for a year, hopefully can replace in '15

3rd - Dri...

I'm biased as a UM guy but he's an athletic freak who's plenty strong and was rarely beaten - handled Clowney well in the 2013 bowl game. If there is any criticism I've heard is that he's quirky and...

I'd be pretty happy with Lewan at #21 - 4.79 40 at 300+ - trade peters for a high pick before he declines and move Johnson to LT and Lewan at RT. Wouldn't have to address the tackle position for...

I think OLB is a bigger need than ILB with Cole's age, Graham's poor fit in a 3-4 (he's a real threat as a 4-3 pass rushing DE) and Barwin's solid but not game changing play (and he's not young...
