Report: Eagles Interested In Moving Up To Fourth Spot In The Draft

According to the Cleveland Plains Dealer, the Philadelphia Eagles are one of the teams that has called the Browns, who will draft fourth in this year’s process and looked into what it would take to move up to the four spot in the draft to possibly draft Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill.

The Eagles have two picks in the second round.  They robbed the Arizona Cardinals who eager to secure the services of Kevin Kolb, now they’re not sure that he’s better than mediocre backup John Skelton.  The Birds are definitely smiling about that deal.

The word on the street is that the Birds maybe interested in moving up in this year’s draft and selecting Tannehill, so that they have a young developing quarterback on the roster.  As you’ve seen with Kolb, Donovan McNabb and A.J. Feeley, the Eagles have been able to use their quarterbacks to make very beneficial trades for themselves.

I think this would be a good move for their future, but it’s not going to make them a better football team this year.  I’ll bet you Michael Vick would like to see them use that first pick to make the 2012 team a better squad.  If the Birds use two of their first three picks on a player who won’t help them this year, it says that “they’re not really all in this year”.

I never thought I would say this, but I hope they can’t make the deal with the browns. If they are moving up for that reason then I hope it falls thru. Good article G.

I’ve been waiting for this type of story to break. On the mock draft article and the Coples/Poe article I mentioned that the Eagles would be trading up to get Tannehill. You know Andy always likes to have his QB situation settled and we all know Lurie is lying when he says this is Reid’s “make or break” year. Reid was clearly in love with RG3 and I am sure he made an offer to STL but nobody could’ve beat the offer from Washington. Start reading up on Tannehill guys, he will be playing a minimum of 4 games this year as we all know Vick can’t play a full 16…

Ya I hope this is really one of those “Smoke & Mirrors” moves! All I keep hearing about Tannehill is that he is not ready yet… Only other player I could see the Eagles even thinking about at 4 would be CB Morris Claiborne and Id rather see the Eagles stay put and take Dre KirkPatrick or Stephon Gilmor if CB is the position they are looking at. I wouldn’t mind them moving up to 12 or so to snatch up Flecther Cox if he is still there but moving up to 4 to select a back up QB for this year just doesn’t make a hole lot of sense.

If they move up to the #4 spot it looks like Tannehill. Didn’t they bring him in for a visit? Not sure if Morris Claibourne was brought in yet…I just don’t get the Eagles logic. Still looks as if Reid is still in control. You know Howie wants a defensive player. Needs to make up for the REACH of a pick when they moved up to snag Brandon Graham. Let the fireworks begin!

Look at these damn losers!!!!!!

Why would you want to get in the top 10 to draft a player that will not start this year?

You think getting a damn Safety would help this team?

How about a starting SAM?

This is why this team will never go anywhere.

they’ll stockpile rotational players along the line….overstock or corners….but ignore top talent for Safeties.

really – the Cleveland Plain Dealer – wow – what a bunch of idiots – the National Inquirer reported Brittney Spears had a sex change, Obama is a radical muslim and was born in another country, a Barbara Bush is really Jennifer Aniston in a fat suit…. of course the Eagles asked about moving up to number 4 – they better have asked about moving up to number 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,and 14 and they better have found out what every team would be willing to give up to move up to 15 – called doing your homework – being thorough, attention to detail….

damn – bad enough when you dipweeds jump all over the team when they don’t say anything – now we are going to jump all over them becuase of what a rag out of Cleveland says?

First 3 picks will be DT/DE and LB –

This would be a bad move to give away all your picks for a overrated QB when you got other needs on this team I don’t understand the logic stay at 15 and draft the best player available. I don’t mind moving up a few spots but to 4 nah not buying it.

we deal with Cleveland becuase the GM was involved in bringing some of the folks to the Birds and is now taking them there – that’s it…

Guys breath – the Eagles ALWAYS try to get the best deal possible – Reid LOVES draft picks – he is not going to give away his draft picks, he is not going to move up to #4 – if anything – he will trade BACK and get more picks..

in other news the national enquirer is reporting the Bee Gees Robin Gibb is in a coma – Brad and Angelina are engaged and a bunch of other hogwash on par with the article from Cleveland – and speaking of Cleveland for all you Philly whiners –

The city’s failure to win a trophy in any major professional sport since 1964 has earned it a reputation of being a cursed sports city, which ESPN validated by proclaiming Cleveland as its “most tortured sports city”

interest in any QB within reach, because people assume Michael Vick is on his way out, with Reid. They’re just taking advantage of that, and using their aggressive assumptions to their advantage.

Listen to Charlie Casserley talk about how he would pump up a player he didn’t plan on drafting, but had knowledge of another team being interested in that player, and he would talk him p so that team would sell high to get who he really wanted. It’s caled posturing gentleman, dont sweat it.

Who do we have evaluating defensive players for he early rounds?

That’s the question we need answered ….

If I’m Lurie I’m paying Modrak as an consultant to choose the best defensive prospects in position and have his alignment stand. period.

This team have sucked ass on defense in the early rounds every since Modrak and Marc Ross left.

Marc Ross went the the Giants and have totally proved the Eagles brass have no damn idea what they wee doing letting him walk.

Now look. We suck choosing defensive players.

Their not interested or are they gong to draft a WR, or a QB in the first round. Bank on it, unless Reid sincerely, doesn’t want his job. They need impact in this draft immediately. There is no immediate impact at those positions in this draft, outside Luck, and Griffin.

You guys are hilarious. This is a SB year for the Eagles and if they are moving up to #4 then IMO it is to get an impact defensive player they think won’t be there at 15. This FO has made some pretty decent moves in the past 2 seasons so I’m willing to sit back and see what they do before I get up in arms because of rumors from the Cleveland Plain Dealer. I don’t think Tannehill will be sporting Eagles green unless he falls to the 3rd or 4th round. The fact that the Eagles went to his pro day instead of inviting him to the Novacare Complex tells me all I need to know about the potential for this deal.

Ozz, do you have any comment about the specific content in my posts or just how I post?

I think (and I’ve posted all this before by the way) they should draft any of the following players (in no particular order):

Keuchly, Cox, Worthy, Brockers, Wolfe, Hill, Wagner, Couples, Claiborne, Fitzpatrick, Gilmore, Boykin…..Fleener, Kendricks, maybe Poe, maybe Ewing….

I think they should sign Bell, but if they don’t, I get that too – I don’t think that our safties will be that bad if they sure up the LBs. I think our DL was already very good. And I think the CBs will improve if they move Samuel. So I think with much improved play in front and next the Safeties, it will be ok.

All but 2 are well beyond Vick in terms of Qb ability. Deny it all you want. Its true,

And yes, there were Johnson (who I’d still take over Vick) and Dilfer (the outlier) but he led a team with perhaps the greatest D of all time….Eagles don’t have that.

Without a SB QB, there will be no SB, Done and done. Deny it all you want. But it is what it is.

@Giants Fan…

Crawl back in your hole… no one was talking to you besides I don’t have the time to slap you around like usual. You consistently troll around Eagles websites trying to undermine this team but it’s ok… you will fail in your efforts.

“To win the SB you need a SB capapable QB, That we do not have.” – Says who… You??? Last I checked you don’t know what the hell you’re talking about. Last I checked you don’t know squat about football. But hey… Keep saying we won’t make it to the SB with Vick. Every time you make one of those hate filled predictions it works out great for the team.

You say DJax is a punk and thug and is gone…
Front office says DJax has a bright future and is signed to a long term deal.

You say Cullen Jenkins is old and Gone
Front office say Cullen Jenkins is a valuable part of the defense and is signed to finish his career in Philly.

Please keep saying this team will not win with Vick. I am begging you please!!! You have the midas touch… every thing you hate turns to gold.

Hey I got a list for you…

QB’s that have had better help (players and coaches) around them for most of their career than Michael Vick:

I want you to understand something Giants fan, you don’t know football. Not even a little bit. By the way where are your stats? Normally you’d post a half-assed arguments with a bunch of stats without any context and give a highly jaded incomplete analysis of anyone you don’t like. I love it when you post stats because they show how truly ignorant you are to the game and it’s components. Hey and when you post them please site your source because no one is taking your analysis of anything football related seriously.

If i were the Eagles i would do whatever i can to get DE Michael Brockers from LSU. This guy is 6’5 and weighs 300 + pounds. He’s the next Julius Peppers. Look at what the Giants did in the 2010 draft by selecting DE Jason Pierre-Paul. Some felf it was a reach to draft JPP so early, and that he only started 1 yr as a starter in college.Some NFL experts even called him a bust. Looks like he has proved everyone wrong so far? Anyways, i just hope the birds go defense. But i’m sure the FO will find away to f**k it up

I think I posted this on another thread that there is no defensive player in the entire Draft worth mocing up to the #4 Spot, there just isn’t… QB’s Luck/RGIII are about the only 2 players that would be worth giving up a bunch up picks to move up and they will b eloaded in at #1 & #2
Much of the next 20 Selections will all be players with rewards but risks, there are only a few players who will probably be consistent and contributors from Day 1 and become steady NFL players and that’s RB Richardson & LB Kuechley.. Many of the DL, Secondary & WR Players have lots of upside but also some risk to them too ..
I stay away from the following players all together in the 1st Round
DT’s Poe, Brockers,Still, LB Upshaw, OT J Martin, WR K Wright an potential later 1st Rounders like TE O Charles, DE N Perry, CB A Denard

Brockers is DT and not DE so any comparison with to DE Peppers or JPP is not valid and makes no sense.
Brockers is a 6-6 330 lbs run stuffing, space eating DT who is probably better suited for a NT position in the 3-4 Scheme..
I expect Brockers to go anywhere from #9 (Panthers) to #14 (Cowboys)

Another player to say away from at all costs in the 1st Round is CB J Jenkins who has too many off-the field issues (usually involving marijuana) and just cannot be trusted that he will be able to stay clean in the NFL and not get suspended
I think Eagles and Browns may be talking about Browns getting Eagles #15 for their #22 and early 2nd Rounder more than the Eagles moving up to #4
Let’s face it, Browns President Holmgrem needs to make a splash this Draft, they need playmakers at RB,WR, & DE and maybe another QB to make any moves just to be competitice in the very difficult AFC North Division where you are playing the Steelers,Ravens and the improved Bengals twice a year and you have to beat them just to have a shgot at ever making the playoffs..

You get soooo pissy there Lionsden. And I still love the way you try to set yourself up as the great arbitrator and evaluator of all things stats related.

“Bring your stats to the alter of the Great Lionsden, where he, and he alone will rule and decide whether they are worthy of discussion. But of course if they suggest the idea that Vick is not a great QB, then they will immediately be dismissed, as having no validity, for here in the all-knowing mind of the one Great Wizard Lionsden, the quarterbacking supremacy of the amazing VIck cannot be questioned!

Buddy, I’ve played more, coached more, and watched more football than you could dream of. I’ve forgotten more about the game than you have seen.

As for your inaccuracies (of which there are many)

1 – I said Desean was a punk. (I may have said “wannabe thug) He is. A whiny punk. Who quit last year. But go ahead, keep defending a guy who quit. I disagree with the FOs decision to keep him, but at least they got him relatively cheaply.

2 – I like Cullen Jenkins. A lot. However I did point our he is over 31 and has had an injury plagued career. (is this incorrect oh great wise one?) I said this because I think the Eagles will select a DT early this upcoming draft – and thet would be a good idea. Sorry for “undermining the team” by saying this.

Listen buddy, stop getting your panties in a knot every time I….. Check that….its too much fun reading your your predictable “(as you un screaming from your Vick postered room) “Mommy, Mommy the bad man is making fun of Mike Vick again – he’s Undermining the Team!!” posts.

Oh….bty….You know how you’re always saying we’ve got to listen to the FO, coaches, players and take them at their word? (so Naive) ANd you’re always harping on how I ignore what coaches and expert say and blah de blah blah…

VInce Young last week:

“I asked Andy, ‘could I be part of the team again?’ He was like ‘I would love for you to stay here but you’re not a backup quarterback’ so when I heard the big guy, big red, say that it showed me more confidence and more respect that he had for me when he said he wanted to see me somewhere playing,”

“I can truly understand that and they wanted to give Mike Kafka a little more of a chance to go out and compete and backup up Mike Vick but basically he didn’t see me backing up again. He felt like I should be starting somewhere and playing so that’s just the respect he had for me and saw the hard work that I put in to get better as quarterback last year with those guys.”

Andy Reid saying that Young is a NFL starting QB….highest of high comedy…..so keep on keeping on lionsden…keep putting your faith in what players and coaches say publicly.

Are you talking about Morris Claiborne who scored a 4 on his Wonderlic, still has that wrist injury and is a non-tackler too.Is he bright enough to pick-up NFL Defensive Schemes .. He’s a strong cover guy no doubt about it but I think you could draft a CB S Gilmore at #15 who will be a better all around and much more physcial CB as a Pro than Morris Claiborne which is what the Eagles need in their Secondary..I think Claiborne is a lot like DCR, tall, rangy, makes plays on the ball but not very bright and shys away from being Physcial..

Paulman, I’m hoping J. Jenkins drops enough to us for our 1st pick in the 2nd round. Don’t get me wrong the guy has some issues in his personal life but the dude can ball. I watched his video against A.j Green and Julio Jones when he was at Florida and he shut both of them down. If I’m Reid and the FO and this dude is sitting there for the taking with that 1st pick in the 2nd round Im taking Jenkins and crossing my fingers. I think with Asmo and Ryans there is some leadership here that could put him in place.

The Blackmon report is intriguing but it would probably piss me off just as much if they traded for Tannehill. There are still MAJOR holes on this defense that need to be improved big time. The 1st 3 picks in this draft should be defense period. You can find another WR in the later rounds. (Jeffrey,TY Hilton, Adams, Quick)…

I also think we get better play from both MAclin (will come in much healthier hopefully) and Djax (who can maybe just play with a free will again now that he has some financial security).
