Details of the pick after the jump...

Eagles are used to RBs with Injuries...

From GM bcfunk:  Hot dog! After waiting a bit for the Arizona Cardinals (#31) to offer up a blockbuster trade (Anquan Boldin anyone?), the Eagles happily select Chris "Beanie" Wells with the 28th pick. Wells provides the Eagles with a true power running back (with speed) who immediately becomes their goal line stud and heir to Brian Westbrook (entering 8th season). This selection, along with Hakeem Nicks at #21, gives the Eagles two dynamic weapons for help McNabb to deploy. It also extends the shelf life of Mr. Questionable (Westbrook) who currently has Lorenzo Booker backing him up now that Correll Buckhalter signed with the Broncos. The Eagles briefly mull over drafting OT, William Beatty, but ultimately decided to address their offensive tackle need later in the draft. Wells is simply too good to pass on. 

Commish's Thoughts:  First off, forgive the caption, it wasn't fair.  Wells got the knock for injuries, but what I saw when I watched was a very tough player who didn't let his team down and played hurt.  As a player, he reminds me a bit of LJ, slightly upright runner, takes a lot hits in the upper body and gets cut down pretty easily, but he has a take no prisoners running style that will complement Westbrook nicely, and hopefully buy Westbrook a little more quality time in the backfield.  This is a nice spot for Wells to go, and a nice situation to end up in.  I dig it.

ON THE CLOCK

New York Giants are up next.  Wow, we are down to the nitty gritty now.  We will easily make it through the first round, and could even make it to Denver's pick in the 2nd.  We'll see what Russ comes up with when he isn't busy figuring out what makes the Rockies tick over at Purple Row.

The deadline for this pick is Midnight MST, April 10th..  As long as I receive the pick by that time it will be valid.  To send me the pick, just email me at the address shown in my profile.
