The Eagles only had five draft picks this year, which made it easy for them to wrap up the contract signing Ryan Murray Jersey process quickly.
The team announced on Wednesday that they have signed all five of those picks. They are the first team in the league to have their entire draft class under contract.
The versatile Miller has drawn Kendall Wright and Sterling Shepard comparisons and is positioned for a massive rookie-season role behind Allen Robinson. Miller, who turns 24 this year, has a good shot at earning the No. 2 gig over Taylor Gabriel and Kevin White in what should be a pass-heavy offense under new HC Matt Nagy. Draft him late.
Guice was a popular choice for the Redskins at 13th overall in many mocks, but off-field concerns led to a free fall to late in the second round. Guice is a big, tough back at 5-foot-10, 224 pounds. The LSU product figures to do most of his damage between the tackles and after initial contact (only 13 percent of his rushes went for a loss last season). Guice may not add much as a receiver (18 catches last year), but his combination of size, toughness, speed (4.49 40-yard dash) and elusiveness supplies him with a massive ceiling as a rusher.
He’s the heavy favorite for lead-back duties in Washington this year, but will certainly defer change-of-pace and passing-down work to Chris Thompson. Guice is immediately in the RB2 mix and has added value in non-PPR leagues.
Authentic Youth Jared Veldheer Jersey
Authentic Youth Bradley Roby Jersey Petty was a fourth-round pick in 2015 and saw his first regular season action the next year when he took over as the starting quarterback at the end of a dismal season. He also started the final three games last season after McCown broke his hand.
Saban knows exactly the types of recruits he’s seeking from a physical standpoint. Alabama does not pursue players who fail to fit a specific size/speed metric even though they may prove quality players for other programs.
They have a template, and it matches what most NFL teams are looking for, Reese’s Senior Bowl executive director and Crimson Tide radio analyst Phil Savage told Sporting News. When they come out of the locker room on any given Saturday, you can see that all the DBs are of a certain height, all the defensive linemen are of a certain shape and the offensive linemen are big. It’s not like you have one DB who is 5-7 and another who is 6-2.
The philosophy doesn’t always work, but they believe bigger, stronger, faster players can be better developed toward where they want to be. They try to play the percentages by recruiting prototype prospects at all the positions.
