Yup, you read that right! Only three weeks until the NFL Draft. Or to put it better, three weeks until the NFL Draft in our effing city!

I mean, if that doesn’t get you jacked up, I don’t know what does. In three short weeks, we can end the suspense of who goes at 14, gain more clarity on the cornerback conundrum, and most importantly, find out which players we’ll be rooting for (potentially), for years to come. I can’t f*cking wait. The excitement is palpable. With that it mind, let’s bathe in the glow and dive headfirst into some Eagles chatter – with a heavy emphasis on the draft. So without further adieu…
With draft season comes, perhaps more important, the season of mock drafts. This year’s crop is especially poignant imo. And nobody does it better than Mel and Todd. Quick question, does ESPN lock those guys away in a cell for nine months and jusr roll them out from February through April? Or maybe they’re cryogenically frozen or something? I don’t know – all I do know is that I see them (and only them, seemingly) for three months a year and then, like Keyser Soze, they’re gone. It’s also
probable possible they’re robots. So…yeah…let’s move on.
Jeff McLane is taking a look back at Howie Roseman’s draft history. It’s a seemingly worthwhile endeavor. However, ultimately it’s a moot point since Joe Douglas is completely, 100% in charge of the draft now. You ever hear the phrase “speak it into existence?” That’s what I’m going for here. Hopefully it works. Joe Douglas is in charge…Joe Douglas is in charge…
The Eagles are apparently going to put versatile weapon Curtis Samuel through a pre-draft workout. Two words: Yes please. Draft playmakers – at any position – and I’m good.
Have you noticed how each “note” I’ve done has been shorter than the last? That’s because I’m running out of shit to say. Tbh, I actually just fell asleep for an hour and a half (unexpectedly) and woke up groggy as shit. Aka…let’s jump ahead to the end of this charade. Twittttttttter time:
CB Patrick Robinson’s 1-year deal with #Eagles is worth $775k (0 gtd $). He earned $5m during his 1 season with Colts.

$0 guaranteed? WTF? I know Robinson isn’t good, but still – Howie is mindf*cking people right and left. He may be a wizard.
DGB and Nelson Agholor have a lot to prove with #Eagles revamped receiver corps.

Yup. They have to prove they can find their way to the airport and then, subsequently, out of town. #GTFOH
Eagles will be screwed when 20 players go in the top 10 of the draft.

Especially because it’s going to be the exact 20 guys they wanted, which means they’ll have to trade back and take Marcus Smith again. It’s going to suck.

Marshawn Lynch is at Raiders’ facility today, as @PatMcAfeeShow reported. Source believes eventually “it will happen.”

F*ck. Yes. Give me beastmode back in my life and give him to me in the black and silver.

I’ve said it before – I’ll say it again: The Pats are going for 19-0 and they’re pulling out all the stops to do it. In related news: FML. And on that note…
