Eagles Pre-Draft 2012 – EaglesFanCast 128

The NFL Draft 2012 is a week away, and as in previous years we have it covered thanks to a great friend in Tommy Lawlor.  Tommy helps us weed through all of the speculations, rumors and anxious fan concerns leading up to this year’s Eagles Draft.  We discuss the year’s draft class, what the Eagles need, try to understand what Andy Reid might be thinking, and the overall approach the Eagles will take to address the needs of the team for the near future as well as the positions to be addressed a few seasons from now.  It is never easy to decipher the extremely complicated plans that all of the teams have, but there are only a few days for them to put them together and execute starting next Thursday evening.  The 2012 Eagles season may be influenced in a huge way by this Draft.

EaglesFanCast 106 – NFL Draft 2011

The NFL Draft starts primetime on Thursday, April 28 2011.  We have our old friend Tommy Lawlor back on, picking his mock-draft-making, player-analyzing, game-recording brain to find out about his feelings on this years Philadelphia Eagles prospects and picks.  As figuring it all out is futile for just about anyone, Tommy comes the closest with the deepest insight for Eagles fans on what our team will do starting Thursday.  It’s impossible to keep up with him, so we just press Record and listen in amazement and awe.

We touch on the news that U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson ordered an end to the NFL lockout, then move on to the Draft.  We talk players, potential moves, and how the lockout has affected things so far.  Tommy refers to this class as “below average” at one point, but we talk about the 2011 Class’s strength, Tommy’s favorite prospects for the entire draft, and more.

Tommy will be back again in two weeks (May 10th) for the annual post-Draft show where we will talk about what the Eagles accomplished this week.

EaglesFanCast 83 – NFL Eagles Draft 2010, Part 1

Part 1 of 2

Tommy Lawlor of Scouts Notebook, Eagles Blitz and PhiladelphiaEagles.com joins us for our annual Post-Draft show. With Tommy’s extensive insight, we break down how the Eagles Draft went down, how the new players fit in the system, the work the organization still has to do, and much more.

What we discussed:

  • The NFL 2010 Draft had great ratings and that probably means the new format will stay
  • DE Brandon Graham from Michigan was the Eagles first pick, and they aggressively went for him
  • S Nate Allen from USF was the second pick
  • LB Keenan Clayton from Oklahoma (4th round) might have real potential on this team
  • DE Ricky Sapp from Clemson was chosen in the 5th round and some are seeing him as a steal
  • Eagles picked a number of smart players in this Draft
  • RB Charles Scott from LSU is someone Tommy is happy about the Eagles picking
  • QB Mike Kafka from Northwestern was the Eagles 6th pick overall. He didn’t play a whole lot in college, but is talented.
  • S Kurt Coleman from Ohio State is a player that is starter material in a few short years
  • CB Trevard Lindley from Kentucky

EaglesFanCast 82 – NFL Eagles Pre-Draft 2010

The Philadelphia Eagles are just over a week away from the 2010 NFL Draft.  This week’s show is all about that, of course.  We welcome Tommy Lawlor back to EFC for the third year of this tradition.  Eagles fans know Tommy from Eagles Blitz, his Draft expertise for years on Scouts Notebook, and of course from his work on PhiladelphiaEagles.com.  Tommy always brings a huge amount of player and team insight to us this time of year, and he didn’t disappoint in the least.

We open the show with Tommy offering his opinions on the McNabb trade, then we hit the ground running. This year’s Draft is a very deep one, and we expect the Eagles to use their picks to move.  One concern, though, is that the Eagles have enough holes on their roster for them to legitimately use all of the picks they have.  What about moving around? It is always a possibility, but Tommy does not think that the Eagles try to deal Michael Vick, because he does not believe that any teams would be willing to give much for him in this Draft.

Without question, the Eagles needs this year are: cornerback, safety and linebacker.  We are pretty much all in agreement that they take a cornerback as their first pick.
