Christian Darrisaw, OT, Virginia Tech To be clear, I got this pick as the alternate. But any chance to reunite with my boy Carson Wentz is a dream come true. All of you should know by now how much I supported him while he was here, and was devastated to see him go. Well ... it’s time to give him one last hoorah before we start the 2021 season.

Jordan Howard has his third different jersey number with the Eagles

Jordan Howard has his third different jersey number with the Eagles

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ Will this time be the charm? No. 24 is the jersey number Jordan Howard wore the last time he scored a touchdown as a member of the Philadelphia Eagles. The day was November 11, 2019. Howard logged 19 attempts for 82 yards (4.3 average) and one score in a win over his former team, the Chicago Bears. At the time, Howard’s presence was one of the most encouraging things about the Eagles’ offense. Pounding the rock with him — just like it did in a big upset over the Green Bay Packers — contributed to two straight wins before Philly’s Week...

Philly’s sitting at No. 12 and did well enough in the trade with Miami that it could potentially make a short move back into the top 10 and still come out loaded with draft assets. What would it be for? I’d never totally rule out a...

Eagles Mock Draft Roundup: WR and CB make up 32 of 34 picks

Photo by Tom Pennington/ Mock draft madness. The 2021 NFL Draft is only 11 days away! Let’s pass the time until then by looking at who mock drafts have the Philadelphia Eagles taking with the No. 12 overall pick. DeVonta Smith, WR, Alabama — Loaded Box (Brandon Lee Gowton) There isn’t a world where the Eagles pass on the Heisman Trophy winner – at a huge position of need, no less – and that works out well for them. Howie Roseman overthought it when he took Jalen Reagor over Justin Jefferson last year. He should try not to do that this year and just take an...

Mailbag: Should Eli Manning and Julian Edelman Be Hall of Famers? - Sports IllustratedMy belief is that part of the equation for the Eagles in moving out of the sixth pick was a belief in Philly that Ja’Marr Chase would likely be gone somewhere in the top five (and probably at No. 5, to the Bengals). So take that, and maybe you’d come to the conclusion that Jaylen Waddle or DeVonta Smith would be in play at...

Jalen Hurts (+8000 MGM vs +7000 Fox Bet vs +6000 DraftKings): The NFC East is wide open, which is why all of their starting quarterbacks are mentioned in this column.

Report: Eagles “exploring a move into the top 10”

Report: Eagles “exploring a move into the top 10”

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ Trader Howie set to strike again? The Philadelphia Eagles are “exploring a move into the top 10” picks in the 2021 NFL Draft, according to The Athletic’s Ben Standig. This buzz comes on the heels of ESPN’s Tim McManus writing that “it feels like there’s another shoe yet to drop” while discussing the Eagles potentially moving up from No. 12. It feels kind of silly to hear about the Eagles moving back up after previously moving down from No. 6. But it’s hardly implausible. We all know Howie Roseman loves to trade and he has ample...

Photo by Alika Jenner/ Philadelphia Eagles news and links for 4/16/21. Let’s get to the Philadelphia Eagles links ... Going Inside - Iggles BlitzChristian Barmore will turn 22 this summer. He lacks ideal experience and is raw. He’s also got a tremendous combination of size, strength and speed. He could be come a disruptive force in the NFL. Barmore is ideal for a 1-gap scheme and could thrive in the Eagles new defense. Why take him at 12? NFL teams get rid of the ball very quickly these days. Getting pressure up the middle is more important than ever. Cox and Javon...

Kwity Paye, DE, Michigan TEAM OVERVIEW The Dolphins come into the 2021 draft with some forward momentum. They finished last season at 10-6, narrowly missing the playoffs behind four teams that finished just one win better.
