the Philadelphia Eagles have a need for speed.
They need burners.
They need more burners than pride. Colangelo.
So let's get into it.
Let's talk about that this offseason because we're in offseason territory now.
Super Bowl has passed.
We have no more.
Football sucks, really sucks.
But now we're into the, uh, the off season, and we're gonna talk about some things that the Eagles need.
Obviously, big thing here is I alluded to speed on offense.
They need a lot of it.
So free agency NFL draft.
There's two ways to attack this.
And luckily for Philly, this NFL draft is loaded lots and lots of depth at the wide receiver position.
So first thing I want to look at our Cem free agent potential guys that could fit within the roster.
And, you know, I'm kind of scanning down the list and there's there's a name that immediately pops into my mind for a potential fit.
Now it's gonna cost you some money you might be costing you about, you know, say four years, 40 to $50 million.
That's Robbie Anderson.
Robbie Anderson of the Jets, undrafted at a temple.
He's got a lot of speed and again.
This is something that the Eagles desperately need at the moment.
Because if you remember last year, you know, heading into the year they talked about it D n a no de Sean Jackson Nelson AG, Laurel Shaun Geoffrey.
And it just didn't work out whether it was injuries, whatever didn't work out for the birds they were supposed to have, you know, the top five wide receiving corps, and it just didn't happen.
The Sean Jackson got hurt in the opening game, and then the offense lacked explosion the rest of the way.
Utilization of the 12 personnel package and you would see the Eagles going these long, methodical drives.
That's not how you win the NFL right now.
You need chunk place in a big chunk place.
You need speed in order to get chunk place.
So long, slow, methodical drives.
That's great and all.
But that's not the quarterback that Carson Wentz is gonna wanna be.
He's gonna want to stretch the field.
He's gonna want it, hit the intermediate stuff off, play action.
He doesn't want a dink and dunk his way down the field.
No, you know, utilize a town like that to dink and dunk.
He's not Chad Pennington, all right, so Robbie Anderson.
I talked about him.
Now the free agent that you would want is the guy who's like 25 26 years old, and by the time the contract ends, he still basically 30 years old.
You have him for the duration of his prime years, and that's the thought process with Robbie Anderson, who was 26 years old.
Now he's really the only big name that intrigues.
I will kind of run down here.
Some of the other names that are on the free agent list Amari Cooper is the big one, but I think we can all agree that he's probably gonna go back to Dallas.
So I'm not gonna be unrealistic here.
I'm not going to say that the Eagle should go after Mari Cooper because there's no chance it out.
That is probably gonna happen.
A. J. Green is 31 years old.
Do you want to go with a veteran who's coming off an injury? His projected salary, according to Spot Rak two years for $18 million.
You also got Emmanuel Sanders.
He's at 33 years old, two for 20 months, according to Spot Rack.
Danny Amendola, another one who's older.
I just wouldn't really be interested in older at this point, especially when you already have some veterans at the position.
So Robbie Anderson would be the one.
Do you take a chance on potentially for shot Pyramid, who's already played for three different teams? But in 2019 this past season with Tampa Bay, Bruce Arians likes to air it out.
Set career highs in receptions, yards and touchdowns.
I wouldn't be interested in that.
I'm not interested in signing somebody coming off his best year when he was originally potentially a bust, so I would not be interested in signing him.
That the guy that you want to go after in terms of value, in terms of you know who you can get for potentially cheaper and have some production with.
I was scouring the list, all right, scouring the list.
All of these names.
Not a lot of good names, but I did find somebody by the name of ***in Cole.
He's a restricted free agent.
He had a big rookie season with Jacksonville.
He actually led the NFL in yards per kept yet 18 yards for catch.
So a guy you get vertically down the field a little bit, he's probably not gonna cost a lot.
And he's somebody who's had inconsistent quarterback plays in Jacksonville.
Just had Nick Foles and Gardner michu two years prior that he had Blake Bortles.
So, you know, maybe there's some untapped potential there, and if he's cheap, he'd be somebody that I'd be willing to take a flier on some other free agent names.
We got Randall Cobb, but he's a slot guy, not somebody I'd be interested in.
Ah, Devon Funches had some success with Cam Newton, 25 years old.
Not the kind of guy I'm looking at.
He's kind of a back shoulder guy and Carson Wentz not really a packed shoulder quarterback.
Part of the reason why he and also on Jeffrey.
It's been difficult for them over the last couple of years to get that kind of cohesion going.
Nelson, angular, 26.
Would he be interested in a one year deal to stay in Philly because he could cash out if he has a good year? If he has a bounce back here, would he be interested in that? I'm going to say? Probably not.
I'm gonna say at this point, he Philadelphia they're probably just gonna part ways.
He's probably looking for a fresh start.
That's my guest.
I don't know, though.
We'll see what happens with that.
Another kind of flyer that I saw.
This isn't somebody who's gonna bring you deep, but somebody who's gonna be a possession guy and that is Taj a sharp 25 years old.
Uh, he's kind of like you and cold in the sense that he had a good rookie season.
And then after that, you really didn't do so hot.
All right, Now let's take a look at the draft and let me tell you something that this NFL draft is loaded, loaded with speed.
Bryan Colangelo would be proud.
So the big one, the guy that probably fits the Eagles to the most is Henry Rugs of Alabama, the fastest guy on tape.
He's a good route runner, and he went to a school that has an NFL route tree in Alabama.
Henry rugs is basically Brandin cooks in a way, and I think he would be a great fit for the Eagles offense.
Now, I don't know if you would be there by the time the Eagles do select in the first round, you might.
He might be somebody that you have to trade up for, but ah, 25.
If he's there, you take him.
Here's my thought process, though.
If he's not there, you may want to go and take best player available in the first round.
Just kind of go wide receiver, maybe in the second in the third round, because that's where the depth ISS, that's where the guys are.
And that's where you can potentially get guys now of these maiko late one, these two particular I'm gonna start out with Brandon.
I used Jalen Raydor, uh, in terms of, ah, regular kid from TCU.
He's probably the fastest, not named Henry rugs explosive with the ball in his hands.
He could score from anywhere on the field.
He could be somebody that fits in Philly, not a diverse route tree at TCU, but he's a fed Brandon.
Ah yuk Arizona State.
He's got change of direction.
So if rugs is off the board at 25 maybe these are two guys that you go with in terms of guys who might be available after round run round one.
I'm looking at K J Hill of Ohio State.
You got Denzel Memes of Baylor, gave Davis of Central Florida, Devon Duvernay of Texas and then even maybe KJ Handler.
He's more of the slot guy.
So if if Nelson angle or does go and he's not back, maybe you go get KJ Handler to fill in for him in the slot.
Now he's not somebody I'm not crazy about.
Uh, he's more quicker than fast.
And I just did a film room, actually on him with Brendan Albert for the better birds and not as crazy on him as I thought I was gonna be.
I thought I was gonna like him.
Change of direction.
He's got a lot of moves in the open field, but he catches the ball with his chest.
He doesn't get consistent separation, uh, in terms of even not only the deep ball, but even some of the underneath stuff, which surprised me.
I thought he'd be a guy that would get more separation.
Um, but you could be a guy that fits in the slot, so that's that's the gist of it here for the Eagles and kind of their options.
A lot of college guys, a couple free agent names, that the college route is the better out in terms of the names.
The only guy that might get big money on the free agent market in terms of wide receivers that could be linked to the Eagles is Robbie Anderson.
I just don't see the Eagles really going after potentially anybody else.
Ah, maybe they would.
But in terms of a big name, I think he would be the guy whether he would come to Philly. We'll see.
But he's got the temple connections.
I explained, Ah, the playing style with Carson Wentz, and you know, he kind of likes to throw the deep outs that deepens and balls more vertically down the field.
And he's been kind of limited in that area because of cir***stance for the Eagles last couple years.
But if they get some more speed, look out.
I mean, speed kills right now.
We just saw the Chiefs win the Super Bowl. That's what they got.
The Legion a zoom Sammy Watkins, Tyree kill Andy Reid was speed at his disposal when he never had speed before.
Look at what he's doing with it.
Speed is killing right now in the league.
And that's where the Eagles need to go this offseason and what they need to address because they have a lot of guys again.
Possession guys all Sean Jeffrey is a back shore back shoulder possession receiver, the guy that they drafted last year.
J J R Figure Whiteside, possession receiver, back shoulder receiver.
The only guy that has speed on the roster right now is to Sean Jackson.
But unfortunately for him, these government often injury and you know, durability is unfortunately gonna be questioned because of that particular injury.
And can he stay healthy for the whole season? So they really don't have any speed at the position right now on offense at wide receiver, they got nothing.
And, you know, we kind of soul how limited they were this season.
But this is something that they could definitely take advantage of this offseason.
So that's what this video is about.
They have a need for speed.
They need burners, they need more burners.
And Bryan Colangelo, I major in fact, you I'm out of here.
