Love both picks with Sanders teaming up with Howard, makes for a nice thunder & lightning combo. Drafting Arcade Whiteside spells ADIOS for Agholor. Could go for a 3rd or 4th pick this year.

That's only if somebody wants to pick up a $9.4million contract.

Something like next yearís 4th plus Aggie for this yearís third? But what do you take with the 3rd? All the safeties gone. Maybe Wilson the LB?

It's not going to happen today flyered. Player trades rarely happen in drafts. There's no way somebody is going to trade for that salary when they are paying the league minimum for these guys now. If he gets traded at all it will be this summer but nobody has that kind of cap room then either. He's an Eagle this year which is not a bad thing!

I don’t know why you guys want to trade him. He has turned into a solid receiver who should continue to get better. They may have over paid now but if he keeps improving he could be a steal in a couple of years. Personally, I don’t want to see him traded away right now.

Totally agree Juk! The only benefit of trading him is to possibly clear room for Wentz' contract. I'm not just handing Aggie's job over to a kid who's never gotten spanked by a Pro player. His head will still be spinning until about Columbus Day. It took Aggie 3 years to learn his craft and he's no dummy.

Sanders is not flashy , but end of the day you’ll look at the stats and he’ll have had a nice day. I like the pick.

Now we need to add a quality S and LB and this draft will have all the ingredients to become one of the best drafts we have had in many years. It looks like they really are taking BPA at positions where we will have a need in the near future even if its not a position of immediate need. That really is how BPA should work. Great job so far. Although I’m a little nervous about our D - especially the uncertainty in our depth in the secondary (I’m looking at you Sidney!) - I really love what the Eagles have done so far this draft. Howie is showing once more why he is one of the best GMs in the league! SIDE NOTE: Every time I praise Roseman as our GM I wonder if this is just a dream. I still can’t believe how much he learned and improved in his banishment year. Its like he went from high school goofball to Harvard valedictorian and somehow graduated in one year! I’m still amazed at what he has done.

In looking at what is still available, OG, LB, S look most likely

UDFAs will be interesting this year. Lots of players not even rated in most top 200 boards have been picked.
