I'm still working on the long Draft Review. For now you'll have to settle for my newest PE.com piece of work.
Man on the Corner
The Eagles added another UDFA, Arizona CB Devin Ross. I thought he looked good when I watched tape of him over the summer. I wasn't as impressed during the '09 season. He was incredibly productive. 25 pass break-ups over the last 2 years. 61 solo tackles in '09. That's a crazy amount.
Someone asked about my comment that I wanted a player to compete with King Dunlap for the backup LT spot. I haven't heard any inside scoops on King. I only know what Andy says or Dave writes. And King is rarely a subject that gets brought up. I don't know that the Eagles had any OTs specially targeted in the draft. We know they spent time with Jared Veldheer. He doesn't have long arms, which is usually a key thing that Reid and Castillo prefer. There were a lot of comments about the quality of the OT class this year. It was a good group, but was real top heavy. Once you got past Saffold and Veldheer things started to get mediocre. It sure didn't seem like the Eagles found anyone that really interested them.
I'll be writing notes on Austin Howard in a day or two. He is likely here as the #3 LT. I want to watch more tape to offer the best opinion possible.
