This has Joe Douglas fingerprints all over it. I thought Ngata was more of a 3-4 guy, but I guess he can contribute to the rotation.

Default Remember our Boobie prize that draft?

we all knew Ozzy would go Defense,,so after Baltimore took NGata we settle on Jerome McDougle......now thats a Boobie Prize,,,,,so 10 years later we get the guy for 1st downs?

That year was Brodrick Bunkley, I think.

Correct. McDougle was 03. He went one pick before Polamalu.

Eagles had Dawk and a 23 year old Michael Lewis so Polamalu wasn't on their radar, but, OF COURSE he went one pick after McDougle.

Douglas needs a promotion (or fake title bump) coupled with a huge pay raise. Lurie MUST keep him happy and here long term. I hope he doesn't grow tired of Roseman getting credit for everything and leave for a true GM gig after his contract expires.

One could see somebody getting rubbed the wrong way if their work is being largely credited to somebody else. Especially a guy with Howie's personality and love for the cameras.

funny thing was everyone was nutting over that draft. we all wanted a DT, and with ngata off the board, everyone was celebrating that bunkley fell to us (he was a better fit than ngata anyway). winston justice was supposed to go in the first round, gocong seemed like a great pass rusher, and jean-gilles was a road grader. and then you had jeremy bloom...man, jeremy bloom.

thank god for the 2012 draft.

In fairness, 6/8 ended up as starters at one point or another. None were stars or even above average players though.

Many were prototypical Reid "I know better than everybody else" picks. Like when the pick is announced, and you're all excited for who you expect to be called...and then you go, "Huh? Who?" before looking the dude up to see if he's any good.

Is this definite? I heard one report just now that said Eagles were front runners but not a done deal.

Technically it can't be a done deal until tomorrow at 4 PM. But preliminary agreements can be made.

I'm wondering how much the guy has left to give. Hell, he's 34 in a position that takes quite a beating. Sure he'll be in a rotation, but damn.

I can't imagine he'd be coming in as anything more than a rotation guy/role player.

The thing I like is that it appears the Eagles are now seen as a prime landing spot for players. As Hipster Akers mentioned, guys who are chasing a ring, or have won and are looking for one more, know we have the team, coach and QB(s) to get them there. It's pretty cool.

Default if true, that is great news....

He was great in B-More, I'm guessing Detroit didn't know what to do with him .....doesn't hurt he played next to Jernigan with the Ravens so they will be reunited ....prolly sharing the same role.

i don't know about that. everyone loved our 06 draft. i'd say we got exactly who eagles fans wanted in the first two rounds. even after that, picks like jean-gilles, omar gaither, and (sigh) jeremy bloom were popular.
