Philly set to welcome NFL draft in grand way

It is very likely that the Browns were tanking last season, and it will now be up to second-year head coach Hue Jackson to turn things around in Cleveland. It will be open from noon to 11 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, and 10 a.m.to 6 p.m. on Saturday. "It's about getting the right players for the Philadelphia Eagles".

Three straight road games (including Seattle), then Oakland and Dallas, to end the year smells like another bad end to an Eagles season. You have to go back to 2013 to find an Eagles win at FedEx Field.

Tight end Zach Ertz also had time with the media on Thursday and then afterward talked about what it will mean to have wide receivers Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith with the offense and the impact they will make.

It's teacher versus student, as Andy Reid squares off against protégé Doug Pederson.

It is unclear who will be opposite Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Shepard.

"He's incredible with the ball in his hands, you can split him out, he's got really good hands, he can pass protect, he can make people miss". At worst, they'll be talent-deficient.

Let's hope it isn't the Eagles and Philadelphia, and it would be nice if Lurie came out ahead of time and said it won't be.

Monday, Oct. 23, 8:30 p.m. Arizona Cardinals, 1 p.m. There's no question. What we see now (in the 2016 draft) is probably not what we see a year from now or two years from now. Jackson is a versatile playmaker that has drawn comparisons to former Eagles fan favorite Asante Samuel.

Three of those prime-time games are on the road: at the Carolina Panthers on Thursday, Oct. 12, at the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night, November 19, and Sunday night, December 3 at the Seattle Seahawks.

But the schedule is as the schedule does and so we have some definition to the 2017 regular season. It is just the 10th time in franchise history that the Birds will play back-to-back road games to start the season and the first time since 2011. For the most part, these workouts were organized by Wentz's agency, Rep1 Sports. Will it be any different in 2017?

What could have been. If one or both receivers fail to meet expectations in 2017, the Eagles will be right back at square one. This would have been his glorious return to Philly.

The Eagles haven't lost to the Broncos at home since 1986 and hold a 5-1 home record against Denver overall.

Late-round steals: Anthony Auclair, a product of Laval (Canada), was one of the most impressive players competing at this year's East-West Shrine Game and has the physical traits to be successful in the NFL.

Week 12: Sunday, Nov. 26 vs.

Wentz has fond memories from his first matchup with the Bears.

"My perspective is you drafted Carson Wentz, you better support him", NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock said.

Lattimore's sub-4.4 40 yard dash strengthened his case as the top corner, and his ability to cover has pushed him past Marlon Humphrey to be considered the best cornerback in this year's ridiculously talented class.
