,190commentsPhilly’s pick at No. 25?EDTShareTweetShareShareNFL Draft Rumors: Eagles among teams “very intrigued” by Josh JacobsMark Rebilas-USA TODAY SportsThe Philadelphia Eagles are reportedly among teams “very interested” in Alabama running back Josh Jacobs.This isn’t the first time we’ve heard the Eagles linked to Jacobs leading up to the 2019 NFL Draft.Philadelphia used one of their 60 official meetings with him at the NFL Combine in February. Last week, Geoff Mosher said: “I’ve been hearing that ... don’t be shocked if the Eagles take a running back in the first round. They really like Josh Jacobs.”Doug Pederson praised Jacobs when asked about him at the NFL owners meetings. It should also be noted that Eagles director of team development Joe Pannunzio was Jacobs’ running backs coach at Alabama last year.It’s easy to believe the Eagles could have interest in drafting Jacobs considering they currently have one of the worst backfield in the league. But would they really take him at No. 25 overall, assuming he even makes it there?Given that Philadelphia hasn’t drafted a running back in the first round since 1986, it’s kind of hard to believe. There’s not much evidence to support this current regime wants to invest premium resources in the running back position.But we do know the Eagles really value the passing game. And that’s an area where Jacobs can help. He flashed pass-catching ability in college with 48 receptions for 571 yards (11.9 average) and five touchdowns. He also earned a reputation for holding up in pass protection. If the Eagles were ever going to take a first-round running back Womens Nigel Bradham Jersey
, Jacobs might be the guy. He’s versatile (third down back skills), young (just turned 21 years old), relatively fresh (didn’t have a huge workload at Alabama), and just overall talented.That’s not to suggest Jacobs is a perfect prospect. His athletic testing numbers weren’t super impressive Brandon Brooks Jersey
, Alabama using him in a limited role could be spun as a negative, and he’s had some injury issues in the past. There’s some thought Jacobs could fall out of the first round. Maybe the Eagles could trade up for him in the second round at that point.The Eagles are bound to draft at least running back this year. It’s possible Jacobs is that guy.Scouting report via NFL.com’s Lance Zierlein:That comparison is interesting because the Eagles were rumored to be very interested in Michel last year. And the Eagles traded out of No. 32 right after the Patriots selected Michel at No. 31.Doug Pederson’s reaction to being interviewed by NBC Dallas is all of us Following the Philadelphia Eagles first win of the season, and heading into a long weekend, head coach Doug Pederson did what he often does: Golf. He’s been known to make a few friendly bets over 18 holes http://www.eagleslockerroom.com/authentic-malik-jackson-jersey
, but it was his reaction to an interview request by NBC in Dallas that was the real noteworthy moment on Sunday.Pederson had to make sure he heard the producer right that NBC Dallas was the one asking for an interview, and after one of the best facial expressions I’ve ever seen, and a few seconds of biting his lip, quipped Womens Timmy Jernigan Jersey
, “Alrighty”.Same, Coach. Same.Making this reaction ever better, later that day the Cowboys would look impressively bad in their season opener against the Panthers. Ezekiel Elliott only made it into the end zone once, while also recording his second-fewest carries (15) Stefen Wisniewski Jersey
, and Dak Prescott threw so erratically the offensive scheme changed quickly to a series of hand offs vs. down-field passes.Pederson’s reaction to the interview request by the NFC East rival market, was pretty close to my reaction to the entire Cowboys team following their loss to Carolina.
