"We're still going to have to shore up the end of the games on defense", Luby said, "but on offense you have to have playmakers nowadays".
With the No. 52 selection in hand, however, the Eagles can be players Friday - both in the draft and on the trade market.
"I think the tape is what we always go back to, especially with offensive linemen", assistant general manager Eric DeCosta said. That is draft management at its finest: moving back to get value and add picks, and still landing two players that were under consideration at the original spot. I wouldn't want to be the 31 other teams in the National Football League...
A long night for now-former Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson ended with a trade that may have placed him in a situation where he'll be able to flourish as a pro.
Plus, Ozzie is more tapped into Alabama than anyone, and likely had a reason for passing on Ridley - similar to passing on Crimson Tide stars in 2017 such as Reuben Foster for character issues (charged with three felonies this month), Jonathan Allen for durability concerns (placed on IR in Week 6), and O.J. Howard (can't explain that one). "It's just motivation. I'm not mad, it's just motivation to go into the season ready to play".
Carter was taken 66th overall, the second pick of the third round, by the New York Giants. Jackson had to wait through the names of Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield, the 2017 Heisman victor and No. 1 overall pick, as well as USC Sam Darnold with the No. 3 overall pick, Wyoming QB Josh Allen at No. 7 and UCLA's Josh Rosen at No. 10.
It's a coup for Cardinals GM Steve Keim, who couldn't have gone into Thursday imagining a player some expected to go in the first five picks would be without a dance partner at 10.
Indianapolis provided some protection for quarterback Andrew Luck by selecting Notre Dame guard Quenton Nelson, a Red Bank Catholic graduate, at No. 6.
"It made me speechless", Vander Esch said. "I loved watching (former quarterback) Donovan McNabb and I try to pattern my game now after (Eagles safety) Malcolm Jenkins".
"You know what, it doesn't really matter", Esmer said. That possibility dissolved when the San Francisco 49ers snagged McGlinchey at No. 9.
McGlinchey, a cousin of Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan, spends part of his summers at the family home in North Wildwood. In a nod to his own Hall of Fame playing career, he selected two pass-catching tight ends, including first-rounder Hayden Hurst, to fill the most pressing need on the roster.
Hurst walked on to the USC football team in 2015 and played receiver and tight end.
