@Real Cowboys LMAO @ Contras and you may be right...but because the Eagles are so hated remember they do not have a 2nd this year and to take more of this years draft and next years 2 away might just bury them for a while....
yo.. you do not do your research.. the draft rumor page isnt @#$@... our gm has talked about how safety is the hardest thing to find.. so why would we pass on jalen when we are going to spend a bunch of money on our front seven (second highest cap space).
It's nice to have a draft order set and the Senior Bowl behind us (other all-star games, too, I suppose). The combine is the other big event of the offseason, so we really are halfway to the draft. Sort of.

Summary: Tristan Thompson is hoping to capitalize off some of the top prospects in college basketball returning to school. Because guys like Harrison Barnes, Jared Sullinger and Perry Jones did not declare for the 2011 NBA Draft, Thompson could end up being a late-lottery prospect even though he may not be ready to contribute major minutes right away.
Player Comparison: Taj Gibson. Similar in size, Gibson and Thompson bring some of the same intangibles to the floor. Both guys crash the boards, are effective shot blockers, and have nice back-to-the-basket games. Gibson has found a role on the Bulls being an energy guy off the bench, and Thompson will have to follow suit early in his NBA career. Thompson does have more potential than Gibson and will have to work on his jump shot if he wants to maximize his ability.
