    NFL Draft

    Don't forget it's on tonight, 6 Mountain time, so I reckon it'll be on at 8 for the Eastern folks.

    Safety if he's available. If need be, I don't know how far up they'd go. What about you guys? I haven't been keeping track, but the Eagles seem pretty well stocked on both sides.

    I can honestly say that I don't see any "must have" players in this draft for the Eagles. They have a ton of picks, and I think there will be good value in the later rounds. The kid that I'm most interested in, but not for the Birds, is the QB predicted to be the #2 pick. I think he could be something special. The first pick, the Luck kid, has a great pedigreed. His dad was an NFL QB, and he's the AD at WVU (where he was a star QB). Standford means he should be able to handle the playbook fairly quick.

    I'm guessing the Eagles will select a Defensive tackle with their first pick, and I don't expect them to trade up unless they are really high on a particular kid.

    Long way to say I have NO idea where they are headed. When all is said and done, I know they will have some D linemen, a running back or two and possible somebody with size to catch the ball (WR or TE). But I never rule out a surprise with these guys.

    First and foremost the Steelers are looking to shore up the deeefense. First choice is expected to be a linebacker from Alabama, Hightower. They are assuming Big Ben will stay healthy I guess. He got bloodied and broken up badly last season but he seems to be able to hang in there like Terry Bradshaw in seasons past.

    I expect (which one should never do with Reid) the first 2-3 picks to be on defense.) If Cox or Kuechly aren't available at or near 15, look for the Birds to drop back for more picks and hopefully select a combo of Bobby Wagner (SAM) Derek Wolfe (DT) and B. Boykin (slot CB)

    Evidently the rumors that the Eagles were locked on Fletcher Cox were true. It's a good fit.
