O-Line prospect breakdown (by Fran Duffy)

19 April 2015 - 12:23 PM

Found this over on the Eagles web site.  Absolutely beautiful breakdown of some O-Line talent in this years Draft.  If you have the free time, its worth checking out.

Calculating Our Draft Needs

19 April 2015 - 11:35 AM

So I spent a couple minutes this morning calculating our current draft needs based off a grading system that combines PFT rankings and other player grading systems.

 

A few assumptions had to be met in order to do this: 

First I assumed that Cam would be extended and Luke would receive his 5th year option.

I also had to make the assumption that the players skill levels are not going to change over the course of time. 

Finally, it assumes that players are going to live out their current contracts.

I also only calculated potential position starts (top scores available

 

The numbers are skewed due to the fact that in 2016 we will not have a FB under contract and we will only have 2 CBs under contract. 

 

So, our current position needs are as follows:

 

Offensive Tackle (82.65)

Free Safety (72.9)

Corner Back (57.36)

Wide Receiver (51.18)

Running Back (49.51)

Strong Safety (46.23)

Full Back (42.6)

Guard (32.5)

Outside Linebacker (25.6)

Tight End (17)

Defensive End (15)

Defensive Tackle (15)

Center (12)

Quarterback (11)

Middle Linebacker (4)

 

It turned out, I think, like most of us would have predicted. If we cut Charles Johnson next year, which is likely given the cap savings, DE need jumps to 44.83. 


Who Is Likely Cut (offseason fun)

17 April 2015 - 12:18 PM

So I have put together the top 53 players currently under contract (this is very debatable, I know).  If we were to keep all 9 of our draft picks, and arguably add UDFAs to the PS.  We would be looking at replacing 9 people from this depth chart.  Who do you cut?  

 

Already cut: (Stephen Hill, Brenton Bersin, Edmund Kugbila, Fernando Velasco, David Foucault, Brandon Williams, Darrin Reaves, Kyle Love, etc.)

 

Choose 9 players who get replaced by our incoming rookies.

Predicting the Depth Chart (pre-draft nonsense)

04 April 2015 - 08:44 PM

I wanted to take a shot at predicting the final 53 assuming that we would be picking certain positions in the draft.  Here is my predicted 53:

 

Offense (24)

QB (3): (1) Cam Newton (2) Derek Anderson (3) Joe Webb

RB (4): (1) Jonathan Stewart (2) Fozzy Whittaker (3) Draft Pick (4) Jordan Todman

FB (1): (1) Mike Tolbert

WR (5): (1) Kelvin Benjamin (2) Draft Pick (3) Jerricho Cotchery (4) Corey Brown (5) Ted Ginn

TE (2): (1) Greg Olsen (2) Ed Dickson

LT (2): (1) Michael Oher (2) Draft Pick

LG (2): (1) Andrew Norwell (2) Amini Silatolu

C (1): (1) Ryan Kalil

RG (2): (1) Trai Turner  (2) Chris Scott

RT (2): (1) Mike Remmers (2) Jonathan Martin

 

Defense (26)

RDE (3): (1) Kony Ealy (2) Frank Alexander (3) Wes Horton

LDE (2): (1)Charles Johnson (2) Draft Pick

NT (3): (1) Star Lotulelei (2) Dwan Edwards (3)Draft Pick

DT (2): (1) Kawann Short (2) Colin Cole

SLB (2): (1) A.J. Klein (2) Adarius Glanton

MLB (2):  (1) Luke Kuechly (2) Jason Trusnik

WLB (2): (1) Thomas Davis (2) Draft Pick

RCB (2): (1) Josh Norman (2) Draft Pick

LCB (3): (1) Bene Benwikere (2) Melvin White (3) Teddy Williams

SS (2): (1) Robert Lester (2) Roman Harper

FS (3): (1)Tre Boston (2)Kurt Coleman (3)Colin Jones

 

ST (3)

P (1) Brad Nortman

K (1) Graham Gano

LS (1) JJ Jensan

 

This means we drafted the following positions, in no particular order: RB, WR, T, DE, DT, LB, and CB. (Two of our draft picks must have been used to better position ourselves in the draft.)

 

Some notable cuts: Jarret Boykin, Nate Chandler, Fernando Velasco, David Foucault, Richie Brockel, Darrin Reaves, Mario Addison, Brandon Williams, Ben Jacobs, DeAndre Presely, Carrington Byndom, Brian Folkerts

This was much harder than I thought it would be, which is a good thing.  Lot of young talent on this team.      

 

What is your completely BS prediction of the final 53?  

 

 

*Adjusted by request, cut Brandon Williams, Added Dwan Edwards 
*Adjusted by request, cut Brian Folkerts, Added JJ Jansen
 


My brother is sitting with Kawaan Short.

My little brother is sitting at a tattoo parlor with Kawaan Short.  He is getting a tattoo of his daughter on his forearm.  Says he is really gregarious.  Any questions?

 

 

Its the offseason.
