The Eagles are done rounds one through three in the NFL draft without choosing an offensive lineman.
Although former Eagles great offensive lineman Jon Runyan (photo above) did make an appearance Friday night to announce the Birds’ choice of Eric Rowe from Texas.
If only Runyan could still play!
And here are a couple of O-linemen and some other prospective choices for today’s rounds four through seven, as chosen by NJ.com’s Mark Eckel:
T.J. Clemmings, OL, Pitt: A foot injury that the player says doesn’t even hurt, has caused the Jersey native to fall from an expected spot in the second round to the third day. If he’s there when the Eagles are on the board he would be great value.
Daryl Williams, OL, Oklahoma: He’s a right tackle, who could project to right guard. He has good size at 6-5, 326, and is strong and tough. He’s also from Chip Kelly’s second favorite school.
Round Six (two picks):
Randall Telfer, TE, USC: According to scouts, he’s the best blocking tight end in the draft. Coming off a foot injury, which is why he may fall to the lower rounds. He also scored 12 touchdowns in his college career.
Blake Bell, TE, Oklahoma: Switched from quarterback to tight end last year, became a starter at the position and scored four touchdowns. Scouts seem to feel he has a lot upside. He has great size at 6-6, 252.
With the second sixth-round pick:
LaDarius Gunter, CB, Miami: Played well during Senior Bowl week, then completely bombed at the Combines, which is why he will last until the late rounds. He’s a tough corner from The U who would add depth to the secondary.
Kyle Emanuel, LB, North Dakota St. Dominated at the small-school level with 19 sacks last fall. That’s a lot of sacks at any level.
