Eagles setting up for free agency at NFL Combine

Michigan State Football

Buffalo's draft positions setBuffalo's draft slots are now set in stone. So much so that when he speaks, the National Football League world listens closely and ultimately you see mock drafts and explanations change around his wording. "He could go as high as the second round, as low as the fourth round but he's got freaky gifts".

Is it really in the Eagles best interest to put all their eggs in one basket in free agency, essentially leaving them room for one significant move? He has, however, landed a few late-round pieces that have flashed potential, including fifth-round offensive tackle Brandon Shell and seventh-round defensive tackle Deon Simon. Baker, in fact, took to Twitter this week to protest that he is often listed as weighing 180, including on his official draft profile on NFL.com, saying he played this season at 192 (the weight UW listed him at this year).

The popularity of and attention on what used to be just a medical clearinghouse for prospects before the draft has reached the point that this year there is another first: the first time fans can secure tickets to watch the players' interviews with the media inside the Indiana Convention Center across the street from the stadium.

The combine is more than a chance to scout.

Coupled with the points at stake in each stage, drivers and crew chiefs will face challenging decisions on when to get new rubber. The only tracks where he's had more top-five finishes than Loudon (eight) are Bristol (nine), Daytona (12) and Pocono (13).

In a somewhat shocking take, Mayock also groups Garoppolo alongside the likes of Raiders QB Derek Carr, Seahawks QB Russell Wilson, Washington QB Kirk Cousins, and Bengals QB Andy Dalton as "quality starters outside of the first round".

Dunn and his team at Test Football Academy are sort of a "Quarterback University". "Inside or outside, I think he's a special player", Mayock said. In total, just 19 alums from the conference are set to showcase their skills for National Football League scouts at Lucas Oil Stadium this week (Feb. 28-March 6), and some of the more interesting prospects like ex-Oklahoma running back Joe Mixon will watching at home. Let's kill some time with our weekly Mock Draft Monday series from now until then.

- Asked about this year's top quarterbacks - which include Notre Dame's DeShone Kizer, North Carolina's Mitch Trubisky and Clemson's Deshaun Watson - Mayock said, "I'm not bullish on the quarterbacks this year because I don't think any of them are ready on Day 1".

"You've really got to do your homework on these tackles", Mayock said. Thanks to the trade of Sam Bradford, the Eagles will now have a draft pick - they'll select a player either 14th or 15th, depending on the results of Friday's coin flip. Imagine what they'd do for a quarterback. Left tackle King Dunlap, a 31-year-old who has lost 13 games to injury since 2015, could be a salary cap casualty - particularly after his February arrest for violating a protective order. It's more likely, however, that they will go for a much better value. "But he's a big guy, he's got a live arm". Southern California cornerback Adoree' Jackson (Belleville native) is among the invitees, as are Florida State offensive tackle Roderick Johnson (Hazelwood Central High), Michigan wide receiver Jehu Chesson (Ladue High) and Wyoming running back Brian Hill (Belleville West High). Kupp's defense can be found in his stats in four games against UW, WSU, Oregon and Oregon State while at Eastern when he caught a combined 40 passes for 716 yards and 11 touchdowns.
