Full Version: Day 3 Best Available
Eagles Forum > Philadelphia Eagles Message Board > Philadelphia Eagles or Football Related Discussion
Realistically, all of these will be gone before our 6th round picks, but here is a list of best available per a compilation of sources:

25. L. Collins OT - said he would forego draft if not picked in top 3 rounds so he's probably not a possibility
32 TJ Clemmings OT- dropping because of a foot injury issue. Injury is to Chip as Yes is to Draft pick or free agent!!
51 M. Bennett DT43 - not a scheme fit for our 34 defense
57 G. Jarrett DT43 - ditto
58 J. Ajayi RB - would be a nice pick if not for the surplus. Can't see us picking a 4th string guy here.
69 T. Jackson OG - pos of need and good character but bigger and slower than Chip's past OG's
73 R. Greene WR - excellent character, we interviewed him, good skill set, good blocker, not ideal size. Do we get another?
80 T. Flowers OLB34 - good character guy, a little bigger and slower than our tastes, Hicks prob eliminates him
84 B. Hundley QB -Could we? Pac 12. We met w/ him Was recruited by Chip before. Goes after folks who turned him down.
85 K. Alexander OLB43 - not a system fit only 220 lbs.
89 Ekpre-Olomu CB - does his 5'9 frame supersede his Oregon alumni status?
90 M Hardison DE34 - eh
91 B. Petty QB - most have Hundley as a better choice and unlike Hundley, Chip never dated him
92 D. Smith FS - good character but only 5'10, but good cover skills and limited speed
93 D. Grant CB - ditto. Only 5'10
95 G. Wright DT43 - not a system fit
97 T. McBride WR - has the size if we wanted to add another.

Other position match guys rated a little lower:

102 D. Williams OT decent size, good character
102 J. Shaw CB - character problem
104 A. Amos FS - we interviewed him, also right skills match

Slim pickings if you consider positions of need. My draft board is three deep here: Clemmings, Williams, Amos. For entertainment purposes only, I could accept Hundley, to make it interesting.

Given that they're talking about Rowe as a CB, I'd look to move Boykin for an early fourth and take Clemmings, then package our fourth and a sixth to get Amos.

That would only leave a question mark at OLB, since Hicks is an ILB. We really need Smith to have a great offseason.
Two years ago, the Philadelphia Eagles made former quarterback/tight end/defensive end Lane Johnson the No. 4 overall selection because of the incredible improvement he demonstrated in just two collegiate seasons on the offensive line. Clemmings, a defensive end until two years ago, himself, could be this year's rapid riser among blockers.
Interesting comparison.

Interesting comparison.

Good point.
Then this:
Pitt T T.J. Clemmings "has power in his hands and a frame that most offensive tackles would kill for," writes NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein.
Zierlein documented how he was sky high on Clemmings until seeing him at the Senior Bowl. "Clemmings was beaten time and time again in pass protection, and his technique flaws and waning confidence during the week grabbed everyone's attention," the analyst wrote. "On the high side, Clemmings could be a Pro Bowl tackle and the next Duane Brown. Like Brown out of Virginia Tech, Clemmings is still a work in progress after playing just two years of playing offensive tackle. His physical tools might be the best in this draft. On the bust side, Clemmings could be like former first-round bust Jason Smith, who disappointed badly during his time with the St. Louis Rams." Clemmings has a stress fracture in his foot, but we still think he's headed for Round 1

Based on that he sounds worth the risk in round four, but I'd have been worried if we'd taken him at #20.
