Mayock: Eagles A ‘Buzz’ Around NFL – Dave Spadaro of PhiladelphiaEagles.com
"The topic here is the Eagles, of course, and the steps they are going to take in the April 30-May 2 draft. They’ve had significant roster turnover as head coach Chip Kelly’s vision gains more clarity, but the foundation work waits: The draft is where NFL teams build their base."
Outside Linebacker an Underrated Need for Philadelphia Eagles in 2015 Draft – Andrew Kulp of BleacherReport.com
"The Philadelphia Eagles solidified the outside linebacker position this offseason, or so we thought. The team reworked Connor Barwin’s contract, ensuring the newly minted Pro Bowler will be around for a while, and re-signed Brandon Graham to start at the opposite end."
2015 NFL Draft: Eagles options at safety, wide receiver, offensive line and more – Brandon Lee Gowton of BleedingGreenNation.com
"The Eagles shouldn’t necessarily be desperate to draft for need, but it’s certainly a factor. It feels like the Eagleshave to address safety at some point considering there is no clear starting option next to Malcolm Jenkins. Wide receiver and offensive line are also in need of attention."
Which Eagles Would Dominate In Rugby? – Tyler Skroski of PhiladelphiaEagles.com
"The spark plugs of the forward group, the flankers can change a game with their plays, just like how Barwin and Graham alter an offensive game plan by bringing mass amounts of pressure. These linebackers bring their tackling (126 combined in 2014) to the rugby pitch and also the energy that team feeds off of, just like their sack celebrations. Barwin is also known by using his long, 6-4 frame to break up passes from opposing quarterbacks, so there’s no reason why #Barwinning can’t be the team’s jumper during scrums, too."
Eagles only mock draft, version 4.0 – Jimmy Kempski of PhillyVoice.com
"While the Eagles have a very talented interior offensive line with Pro Bowl players like Evan Mathis and Jason Kelce still in the fold, both players have typically won with technique and athleticism. Allen Barbre, who is penciled in for now at RG, is in the same mold as Kelce and Mathis. What the Eagles lack is a player who can move defensive linemen off the line of scrimmage with sheer power. Players like La’El Collins and T.J. Clemmings of Pittsburgh can be those kinds of guys for the Eagles."
Last but not least, I’ll leave you off with this gem of a mural featuring Eagles head coach Chip Kelly immortalized in a mural at the Oregon football facility garage:
