How good is he?

Seems like a really good deal giving up only 25 spots in the third round if he's half a starter. And only 24? Wow.

from what I read, he's an upgrade to Logan with a few more sacks.

I also read where he didn't play as much as Logan. Maybe Baltimore's DL is stacked and he couldn't get any playing time.

Sounds like a good move.

It is well established that I don't think Howie is any good but this was a steal.....he is pretty good

He did have about 160 more snaps than Logan but he played in a 3-4

Good low risk, win now move that gives them a chance to look at a guy who is well regarded. Funny thing, the Ravens media did a round table discussion in early Feb. and one of their beat guys actually said that Jerrnigan would flourish in a 4-3, so much so that losing Brandon Williams would not hurt.

This kind of came out of left field although there was some talk after they paid Williams. Rumor was that he was not happy sharing too much time with the rookies.

Certainly looks to be a good addition at a low cost (dropping back from #74 to #99).

And he's still on his rookie contract, so that both helps the 2017 cap and provides him with an incentive to play well for his next deal.

I'm betting Joe Douglass may have had a hand in setting up this deal, it always seems when an FO guy comes from another team trades between the two are more likely.

The Ravens clearly just wanted to get rid of him. Right time, right place, a steal for us.

That #14 pick better be a CB!

In 2014, Jernigan was a second-round pick out of Florida State by the Ravens.

Jernigan, 24, is entering his fourth year in the NFL and the final year of his rookie contract. He is set to have a base salary of just over $1 million in 2017, with a cap number of $1.395 million.

In Baltimore, Jernigan played in a 3-4 scheme as a defensive end, but in Philly he'll get a chance to be back in a 4-3 as a defensive tackle, a spot that might fit him better.

Again, another move consistent with the thought that the Eagles are in win-now mode, but also a move that could work out long-term.

According to one nFL trade value chart, the value of the difference btw the two pics is a low 3rd rounder. So the Eagles gave up a low 3rd rounder for a one year rental of a former mid 2nd round pick.

Mid 2nd round is pretty high for a DT. He certainly was projected to be a very solid starting DT.

There is discussion that he was not getting along well, maybe with coaches, in Balt.

STRENGTHS Strong for his size and clogs the middle. Has disruptive ability. Bends his knees and plays with leverage. Able to stack, locate and shed. Wraps and rips down ball carriers. Coordinated hands and feet. Is difficult to engage -- has quick, active paws. Can slap, rip and swim to beat blockers and turns up the heat on passing downs. Good foot athlete for his size -- changes direction well, gives effort in pursuit and ranges outside the box. Will be a 21-year-old rookie.
WEAKNESSES Has a fleshy midsection. Lacks ideal height and overall body length. Average get-off. Can be overpowered at the point or neutralized when bigger, longer blockers get into his frame. Limited two-gap ability. Average playing range. Stiff-legged and does not change direction easily, as confirmed by 4.84-second 20-yard shuttle time at the combine (tied for slowest among DTs). Could stand to improve his stamina. Was a rotational player prior to junior season.
DRAFT PROJECTION Rounds 1-2 (top 50)
BOTTOM LINE Slightly undersized, stoutly built, country-strong run stopper with the ability to drop anchor inside an odd front and develop into a solid, 3-4 movement nose tackle. Strength is his calling card despite his relatively modest size.
Here ...
Zero
Bennie Logan: 27 years old, 5.5 sacks in 59 games (51 starts)
Timmy Jernigan: 24 years old, 13 sacks in 43 games (26 starts) ...

Edit:
The Eagles have acquired fourth-year DL Timmy Jernigan from the Ravens.

Jernigan had the best run-stop percentage among 3-4 DEs in 2016.

I like it and like Joe said, the value was a low 3rd (point valuewise it equates to the 96th pick).

I like the win now mode.

It gives us more BPA opportunities in the draft.
