Okay, the Eagles have rolled out a new coach, Doug Pederson, and a new defensive coordinator, Jim Schwartz — and Howie Boy Roseman has found his voice which has been mute for a year!
So, what about the future?
ESPN’s Mel Kiper, love him or hate him, has taken a second look at the 2015 draft, and here is what he thinks of the Birds draft class:
Post-draft grade: B+
Here’s a draft class that could look a whole lot better in a couple years than it does right now. Start with Nelson Agholor (above) , a talented kid who was just way too inconsistent in 2015 and is going to get better; or Eric Rowe, who had a tough transition, but could get much better. Then there’s Jordan Hicks, who was outstanding until he got hurt. There’s also JaCorey Shepherd, who I thought could have played immediately in nickel looks but got hurt. Based on where things are now, the class doesn’t look so great, but there’s a lot of potential.
New grade: C+
