Will Cyprien Be Available at 44?

Any chance Cyprien falls 10+ picks into the second and we have the opportunity to select him?

Would you give up a third next year and the 44 to get in position to take him if moving up looks necessary?

Star + Cyprien + CJ + Hardy + Luke + Beason + Davis = Winning.

I'd give up next years third. Eagles need a safety. They might take him.

as Gettleman said only 5 picks this year and only 6 picks next year.

so sit tight, we only have to sweat 11 picks. theres the QBs still sitting there, no RBs have been taken, very few LBers off the board in the 1st, some highly regarded DTs still there... so plenty of players that we don't even need will come off the board.

we may or may not land Cyprien but you're looking at hunter, allen, cyprien, warford, ertz... there will be some very good high value players left at positions we need, no reason to throw away a 3rd here

Eagles in free agency signed Kenny Phillips, a starting safety from the Giants, and Patrick Chung, a starting safety from the Patriots. They could look for a guy for the long term, or just as a pure value pick, but they definitely have more pressing needs.

Thanks for talking some sense into me. I've just wanted Cyprien ever since it was determined that Star was a pipe dream and the both of them would be my dream draft assuming we get the best WR or offensive linemen available in the 4th.

I think it might be possible but not holding my breath. I would be very happy with Hunter, Warford, Ertz, or Cyprien. All of them would make huge impacts week 1.

I get a feeling that Barkley, Nassib, and Geno will go flying off the board pretty early in round 2. This would bode well for our chances.

I think the biggest threat to take Cyprien right now would be the Cardinals after losing Adrian WIlson.

Id cried if Cyprien is there at 44, but I cant see him getting pass Detroit or especially Cincy.

I see Detroit going with a corner and Cincy with Lacy.

Lets hope thats the case.
I would go crazy nuts happy if we landed Cyprien.
Would be one of the best draft in years if we landed Star and Cyprien, two immediate impact players and future pro bowlers. I wouldnt care less to what we do after the 2nd.

I would truly be in awe if we landed Cyprien.

It would really make me never follow the draft as intently ever again until the day of, because if anyone said we would get Star and Cyprien over these last few weeks, they would be mocked.

The draft is a crazy process, and this year has been one for the books. We haven't started the second round either.

I think with Cyprien we make a big push to win the division this year by holding the Falcons and Saints to reasonable point totals in our match-ups with them.

Our offense should be able to abuse those defenses they have in ATL and NO if we can get back to a pro-style offense under Shula.

I honestly wouldn't even be disappointed if we snagged Cyprien then traded up to take the best WR or TE available...like Escobar, Dobson, Allen, etc.
