EAGLES DRAFTING REMOTELY: ‘IT’S LIKE BEING AT NASA,’ HOWIE SAYS!

By Peter Gleason

The Eagles have eight picks in this draft, starting with No. 21 in the first round.

The Eagles have only three running backs on the current roster and big needs at linebacker, having signed Jatavis Brown in free agency, losing Kamu Grugier-Hill in free agency and releasing Nigel Bradham before free agency started.

The lost Halapoulivaati Vaitai, a valuable swing tackle who could also play inside, in free agency and left tackle Jason Peters remains an unrestricted free agent. Those are some of the positions to watch on Thursday night.

Like every other team, the Eagles are working from remote locations. The work to reach this point has been ongoing since early March, before the Eagles vacated the NovaCare Complex on March 13.

Big boss Howie Roseman has expressed full confidence in the ability to replicate what the Eagles have at the NovaCare Complex – “It’s like being at NASA for the Draft,” Roseman told the team’s web site. Everything is in place. “We’re going to try to keep it as normal as possible on the communication level as good as we can,” he added. “There are no excuses for us not to have a really good draft and draft process.”
