    2013 UDFA signed - so far.

    Eagles like many teams rushed to the phone after the draft and trying to swoop as many people as they can... heres the 9 they signed. Hopefully this is a continuation to a great draft!

    LIKELY TO MAKE THE TEAM
    HAS A SHOT TO MAKE THE TEAM
    WONT MAKE THE TEAM


    __________________________________________________ ________________________________________

    Matt Tobin, OL, Iowa
    6'6" - 303lbs Guard

    Nothing really out there on him expect the fact that he was an Honorable Mention All-Big Ten for 2012. He started the first 7 games at LG then played his final 4 games at LT. Not much on him.
    Anyone else know anything care to chime in? I know Iowa has produced some damn good linemen

    Jake Knott, LB, Iowa State
    6'2" - 243lbs ILB
    a projected 4th to 6th rounder coming off a shoulder injury
    Quote Originally Posted by Scouting report:
    STRENGTHS - Knott is an impressive player displaying very good overall athleticism, agility and running ability. He has good size and bulk for the position. He can cover a lot of ground and does a very good job in pursuit to the ball carrier in run defense. He is a willing run defender close to the line of scrimmage as he shows the desire to hit the hole hard and take on blockers so his teammates can make plays. He is at his strength when he can pursue the ball, and he has the range to do it sideline to sideline. He breaks down well and does a good job of tackling, but he isn't a hard hitter, more of a catch tackler than a hitter. The Cyclones rarely use Knott as a pass rusher, but he is good at diagnosing the run versus the pass and generally makes good decisions. He changes directions well and does a good job of staying with backs and tight ends in his area. He is good in both man to man and zone coverage, displaying a good feel for route concepts and getting good depth in his drop. He has quick feet and looks comfortable in space.

    WEAKNESSES - While Knott is a good athlete, he doesn't have outstanding strength and can be bullied by tight ends and tackles when he doesn't disengage from them. He will need to improve his core strength as he gets to the next level. He isn't a powerful tackler and tends to hang on and wrap up more than aggressively take down ball carriers. He is a willing player when defending the run close to the line of scrimmage, although this isn't the strength of his game. He is much more effective flowing to the ball and running plays down with his speed, quickness and lateral change of direction ability. There is very little pass rushing skills to see from Knott as Iowa State rarely uses him as a pass rusher. Knott missed the final five games of the 2012 season due to shoulder surgery and he will have to check out medically in teams are going to select him.

    SUMMARY - Jake Knott was an excellent outside linebacker in college, but a shoulder injury ended his career early at Iowa State and he will have to get cleared medically by interested teams. He is a good athlete, displaying good footwork, speed and quickness. He also flashes good lateral agility which allows him to change directions easily. He is good is pass defense, both in man and zone schemes. He is more a catch tackler than a hitter, but he breaks down well and does a good job of wrapping up. He chews up ground and can really flow to the ball, pursuing from the back side to run down running backs as they turn the corner and is an effective player from sideline to sideline. From a pass rush perspective, there is almost nothing to see from Knott. To be fair, Iowa State really never asks him to rush the passer and it's an area that teams will have to get comfortable with in the process leading up to the draft. Knott is a smart, instinctual player who led the Cyclones defense throughout his career. He warrants fourth-round consideration in the draft as he has value as a developing outside linebacker with special teams abilities.
    heres some more on this kid.

    Positive: Fierce, three-down defender who stands out in all areas of the game. Physical, instinctive, and flies around the action. Fast up the field, quickly changes direction, and shows speed in pursuit. Plays with quickness. Goes hard sideline to sideline and covers a lot of area. Effective in coverage, gets depth on pass drops, and works hard to defend the throw.

    Negative: Easily blocked from the action or disrupted from his angle of attack by the first hit. Coming off a serious shoulder injury.

    Analysis: Knott is an intense defender who plays smart, tough football. He is effective stopping the run, defending the pass, and offers potential on the outside of a 4-3 alignment. Knott will play at the next level if he recovers from last year's shoulder injury.

    Kyle Quinn, C, Arizona
    6'4" 297lbs Center
    This kid is very interesting because hes not too shabby. Was actually thought to be drafted in the 6-7 range because of his strong pro day. But at the end of the day I believe hes a "camp body"
    - Named 2012 All Pac 12 Honorable Mention.
    - Named the 3rd best prospect that is coming out of Arizona this year so that doesn't say much lol.

He'll need to show improved strength and mobility blocking on the move this season but is the unquestioned leader up front for the Wildcats
    Issac Remington, DL, Oregon
    6'6" 298lbs DT or DE
    Played a bit of both at Oregon and no one knows him better then our coach. Seems to of been a body that understand the system.
    - Although was suspended for a DUI that got "dropped".

    Positive: Long-limbed, instinctive defensive tackle who gets the most from his ability. Plays intelligent football, effectively diagnoses plays, and stays with the action. Keeps his feet moving on contact. Knocks blockers away with a violent hand punch and is tough to move off the point. Quickly finds the ball and works hard to make plays.

    Negative: Struggles shedding blocks once engaged at the point and too often controlled by a single opponent. Displays a marginal burst. Minimally productive on the college level.

    Analysis: Remington lacks great upside for the next level but is a serviceable defensive lineman who can be used as a gap occupier in either a 3-4 alignment or conventional defense.
    Russell Sheppard, WR, LSU
    6'1" 196lbs WR or FS or CB or KR (lol no joke)
    This kid seems to be a special teamer that you COULD maybe see in some interesting options IF he is to make the team.

Started four games as a junior in 2011 posting receiving totals of 14/190/4. Posted career-best numbers of 33/249/1 as a sophomore in 2010 when he started nine games.

    Positive: One-time, game-changing receiver who's watched his play regress the past two seasons. Fluid releasing off the line of scrimmage, quick to top speed, and works hard to make himself an available target. Nicely adjusts to errant passes, looks the ball into his hands, and keeps the play in bounds trying to pick up yardage after the catch. Gives effort blocking down the field.

    Negative: Doesn E(TM)t display great open field speed. Marginal skill running after the catch. Easily knocked off balance by the first jam at the line of scrimmage. Lets some catchable passes slip through his hands.

    Analysis: After a terrific sophomore campaign, Shepard looked as though he was poised to be the next big-time LSU receiver prospect. His play has since declined as he was a nonfactor last season for the Tigers. Shepard possesses the physical skills to line up as a fifth receiver in the NFL but must get his mojo back.

    Miguel Maysonet, RB, Stony Brook
    5'9" 209lbs RB
    He totaled 1,881 rushing yards and 2,233 all-purpose yards, and scored 23 touchdowns. All three totals are school and Big South Conference records.

Also averaged 25.8 yards on 12 kick returns with another score. Junior ground totals included 252/1633/15.

    Positive: Elusive and creative ballcarrier with a versatile game. Patient, waits for blocks to develop, and effectively picks his way through the traffic to find the running lanes. Loses little momentum when he must change direction. Finds the cutback lanes and quickly gets through them. Resilient back who finishes runs and displays focus and concentration. Sets his blocks up and uses them everywhere on the field. Possesses great vision, runs with balance, and falls forward when tackled. Sidesteps defenders and piles, does not go down without a fight, and is rarely brought down by the first defender. Flashes pass-catching skills out of the backfield. Effective return specialist.

    Negative: Lacks the speed to beat defenders around the corner or into the open field. Cannot run to daylight. Possesses average size. Not a ballcarrier who will move the pile or be effective in short-yardage situations.

    Analysis: Mayosonet is a skilled ballcarrier who combines instinct, toughness, and short-area quickness to consistently pick up positive yardage. He's a change-of-pace running back who could see action as a spot starter in the NFL and will be a late-round steal this April.
    Damion Square, DL, Alabama
    6'3" 286lbs DE or DT - DE in our system
    Projected in low 5 to 7 rounds.

    Positive: Hard-working defensive line prospect with marginal physical skills for the next level. Keeps his feet moving on contact and fights throughout the action. Wedges between blocks to get behind the line of scrimmage and quickly changes direction or immediately alters his angle of attack to pursue the play.

    Negative: Lacks great first-step quickness. Handled at the point by a single blocker. Displays little in the way of pursuit speed.

    Analysis: Square is a high-effort player who gets the most from his abilities but lacks thesize to play defensive tackle or speed to lineup as a two-gap end. His ability to play with leverage and quickly change direction could help him find a spot in the NFL as a backup 3-technique tackle.
    Brad Wing, P, LSU
    6'2" 205lbs Punter
    Hes a very good punter, but a real douchebag....if he can clear up his character issues with being immature to coaches, meetings and being a jerk to women maybe he wil get the chance.

    Positive: Big-legged punter with the ability to kick his team out of jams. Has a smooth stroke, gets great hang time on punts, and shows the ability to flip the field. Gives coverage units the ability to get downfield and make plays. Solid directional punter with the ability to place the ball inside the 10-yard line or outside the numbers.

    Negative: Slow getting the ball off his foot. Has off the field issues.

    Analysis: Wing offers next-level leg strength and the ability to develop into a starting punter for an NFL team. He needs to quicken the pace getting the ball off his foot and show maturity off the field but offers terrific potential.
    Matthew Tucker, RB, TCU
    6'1" 222lbs
    Big boy! Straight line runner.
    Quote Originally Posted by Scouting Report:

    Positive: Smooth, fluid ballcarrier with excellent size. Patient, waits for blocks to develop and quick on the inside with the ability to make defenders miss. Possesses terrific vision, shows a burst through the hole and slips defenders to keep runs alive. Keeps his feet moving on contact, shows outstanding field vision, and helps the quarterback sell ball fakes.

    Negative: Not a true cut-back runner. Does not break a lot of tackles or pick up much yardage off initial contact for a bigger back. Minimally productive as a receiver out of the backfield.

    Analysis: Tucker is a big back who plays light on his feet and displays the ability to consistently find the running lanes . He lacks the speed to turn the corner and doesn E(TM)t always play to his size but offers potential as a third running back if he turns up the intensity of his game.

    1 year ago today Most people on here were begging for Matt Barkley-Fact
    He was expected to either sneak up into 1st this year or slip in 2nd.
    We got him in the 4th. Great Value I believe. I didn't want us to take a QB at all, but wishing for Scott or other QB's who just became relevant are blind to the potential we got. Like all picks Barkley is a gamble,but playing the odds he has a better chance of working out then the other QB's selected later. He might not work out, but it was a good pick.

    I disagree with some of your choices for "wont make the team"

    Maysonet in my opinion is the most likely to make the team

    some people saw him as a 4th round option going into the draft and the only huge knock on him is coming from a small school, so the jury is out on him, but he has potential and the likelihood that Kelly carries 4 RBs is EXTREMELY high and considering Tucker is a poor mans Polk, Maysonet seems to be the guy

    I would also argue Square has an equal shot as Remington on making the team, he has the edge on production while remington has the edge on familiarity

    also Quinn has a spot because we dont have an established backup center and thats usually a position you can find value late

    Knott, Wing, Sheppard and Maysonet are the guys with a lot of upside that everyone should keep an eye out for

    Well Quinn I actualy thought about. I thought about how he once played with Foles and has that connection with him. But I also thought he would have to beat out Matt Tennant because we will not carry 3 centers, and that might be a daunting task, again lets remember hes a UDFA, not very often they make the squad. But I like your optmistic outlook and hope he does get that chance.

    Maysonet is really a very very interesting prospect, but for his size and shiftyness for that next level he needs not only to be quick but he needs to hit that hole fast and have a very quick 3 step burst or change of direction burst. Thats the only thing in his game his is missing. HE CAN make you miss though, but the NFL is more about creating holes or hitting the hole before it closes rather then being "patient" and waiting for a hole.

    The only reason why I am thinking both running backs dont make the team is 1 name that were all forgetting about here. Chris Polk.... he might not of seen the field a lot last year but Polk is still very much so on this team. And with a full year's rest from all his "injuries" he should come back this year on a tear and I feel he will be our #3 rb. If we carry 4 then yes I fully expect Maysonet to beat out Tucker for that spot, but for now we have a good proble, 3 above avg RBs on our squad.


    Damion Square I dont think he has a chance at all to make the team. I dont care what the scouting report says of him I had the chance to watch quite a bit of Bama games this year, he was marginal...never stood out never really said wow this kid is decent..maybe he does something magical at the next level, maybe our line coach finds a way to squeeze something out of him that I havent seen yet. But for me, meh hes a longshot.

    sheppard will make the team. because he's pretty dynamic but never truly realized his potential at LSU. wing will make it as well because he's incredibly talented and athletic.

    Sheppard is the type of guy who will be a better pro than college player. He could be special.

    He certainly seems to be an unusually versatile football player. I think I remember reading some teams might even consider him capable of playing corner.

    I just read my predictions for last years UDFA's that we signed...holy crap I was spot on...minus TE Chase Ford, whom I sill like a lot. Wow I was pretty much right on with everyone....even the even the yea before that I was spot on

    Even recently arrested bada$$ cliff Harris. Crazy! Lets hope I can't continue that trend this year

    Well if your predictions are that almost every one of these players will be camp fodder and practice squad fodder than you'll be likely sitting at 99% most of the time. I'd be happy if any of them are even backup types year in and year out.

    Hey I predicted how they would do and what they would become. Granted yes their UDFA's but still not too shabby
