Agholor is not going anywhere unless somebody overpays.

JAWs (Arecgia - Whiteside) is more of a Alshon Jeffrey type than an Agholor. Jeffrey starts to get real expensive this year. He is also one of the only ones they have not redone his contract.

I can see in two years both Agholor and Jeffrey are gone.

As a Penn State fan I really love the Sanders pick, as an Eagles fan I love the Sanders pick. He has really good vision, good speed, can slash when need to. I personally think he was a top 3 running back in this draft and it could be debatable that his the best RB in the draft. I am not as big a fan of Jacobs as some. Either way the Eagles finally got a good RB. He and Howard are going to really upgrade the running game which is going to help Wentz. Honestly this offense is pretty stacked right now

If we take Mack Wilson does that mean we have to cut Mack Hollins? Shouldn’t there me a rule about having 2 Macks

I donít want to take anything from Howie, but he is working with one of the best talent evaluators in the game . The fact they work so well together is awesome. I just hope they both are content to stay together for a long time

Word is Douglas is going to Jets as there new GM after the draft. Guys like Douglas only stay for so long as they get job with other teams in higher positions.

I read that yesterday too but it doesn't make any sense (on paper anyway). The Jets had their GM hire the coach, sign free agents and direct the draft. I think that he stays the season and they see how he does. Let's face it though, Douglas is gone at the end of the season one way or another. Gowton also mentioned that they have a guy in place (forgot his name) that they hired two years ago to groom for when Douglas moves on. He was the director of scouting for the Browns who who put that 1-31 bunch together. Isn't that comforting?
