Infam Posted December 9, 2020 Share Posted December 9, 2020 Let's take a hopeful outlook, and get this thing fixed. I don't know how the QB situation will go on, so for now I chose to ignore it in my draft. TRADE: Zach Ertz + 2021 4th + 2022 3rd for a 2021 2nd. 1- Penei Sewell (LT): I know, common wisdom is that the Bengals go for him. I don't think it is as set in stone as people think. I even still think Dillard will play a role for us moving forward - but he may well be the heir at RT now. With Sewell at LT, Johnson at RT and Mailata + Dillard to back up, the line looks scary on the outside all of a sudden. Quote In the passing game, he has outstanding initial quickness in his set and defenders are not going to beat him off the ball. He displays excellent foot quickness to protect both edges and has the ability to recover with his feet and technique. Aggressive in his set and looks to initiate contact in pass pro. Will miss his punch at times, allowing defenders to win using counters or strong arm to get him off balance. Sewell has outstanding lateral movement skills and can mirror against speed rushers and can easily handle inside counters. Sewell can recover late versus most power, but will occasionally give ground to stronger power rushers. Overall, Sewell’s blend of rare athleticism, size, and length make him an easy projection at the next level and will be a franchise left tackle from day one.

He can sit and learn from one of the best, before taking over in 2022. He has some flexibility to play at guard, too. But he would certainly be the Center of the future, and be great at it. Quote Humphrey’s leadership and smarts are seen on multiple occasions as he’s the one responsible for pointing out MIKE (middle) LBs, which is usually the starting point in various protections. He’s frequently seen communicating up-and-down the line to others, pointing them in proper directions. A credit to his leadership, the Sooners lost four offensive lineman and there wasn’t a significant drop off despite their youth. More of a stick, move, and position type. While performing this type of blocking, Humphrey has the ability to latch and turn the body of blockers. Back blocks on nose tackles are secure and pressure-free. Humphrey’s prior time as a wrestler is used to his advantage as he has a very high amount of awareness of blocking angles and where exactly on each defenders body to attack in order to sustain.

Enter Freiermuth, a TE that can block and run routes, just how the Eagles like it. He should've been a first round pick, but with him having season ending injury and abysmal QB play not only has Pitts probably taken the TE1 from him, I can see him slide to an early second. Quote Freiermuth was able to showcase superior route-running and the ability to consistently get open. After the catch, he played with an attitude, running defenders over and moving the chains for the Penn State offense. His reliable hands were fully on display as well, as he flashed the ability to make tough contested catches throughout the game. The Penn State offense also exploded for 245 rushing yards, and Freiermuth’s exceptional blocking was key to their success on the ground.

Also Schwarz does love CBs that can play safety so he can move him around. Quote Mukuamu is position versatile. He’s played both safety and corner in his playing days. He plays with the physicality you want in an outside CB and has good instincts with the ability to click and close, which is useful if he plays safety. He’s big and long and uses his size very well. He gets a quick jab at the line of scrimmage, and it’s really powerful. He can disrupt the timing of routes right at the line and re-route a receiver with his strength and length. Allowing him to be instinctive is going to be when he’s at his best. He’s a reliable tackler with a tremendous tackle radius. It’s hard to get past his tackles with his length and size. He’s aggressive and physical. Source: Scouting Report: Israel Mukuamu - The Dynasty Draft Room So, we created a monster O-line and added a TE and CB that fit us perfectly. Despite Surtain being my favorite draft target, I feel like if the chips fall this way - we have to take the opportunities. It's not all about needs, either. I tried to pick the kind of players that have the traits the Eagles usually love and have looked for. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
