NFL Draft Quick Takes

Here are some quick thoughts so far on the NFL Draft. I’ll be producing a full Post-Draft Stock Watch on Monday, and that will cover all players who’ve seen their stock rise or fall from the draft. Then, late in the week, we’ll bust out our annual Post-Draft Rookie Report. In between, I have the first expert draft of the year on Wednesday, and I’ll be blogging while that’s going on.

Here are some random thoughts:

9:42 Update:

We all knew the Eagles were going to take a back, and they did well in LeSean McCoy. He’s probably best used in a complementary role, but that’s fine here for the short-term. He’s a good receiver, is laterally explosive, and has a nose for the goal. He’ll get a chance over the next 1-2 years to prove he can be a lead back.  And finally, it looks like Andy Reid will actually play a rookie runner.

  • Position Battle Playing Time for First Full Week of Preseason Action August 13, 2014
    We continue to update the position battles around the league, but in this blog, I thought looking at preseason playing time would be interesting. The depth chart doesn’t always tell the whole story and it’s certainly worth noting when players get in the game and who they get to play with, whether it’s with the first-team offense or the backups.
