By all accounts it appears that the Eagles have settled-in on offensive tackle Eric Fisher from Central Michigan as their selection with the fourth overall pick in this year's NFL draft.
While I understand that the offensive line remains a major area of need for the Birds, I was still hoping they would take Oregon linebacker/defensive end Dion Jordan to add a major spark to a rather listless defense. This still may happen if Jacksonville and Oakland decide to pass on the 6-foot-6, 248 lb stud, but I am not going get my hopes up too high.
This Thursday night will be exciting enough given how wide-open the first round of the draft should be this year, but if you are looking to add a little action to the proceedings, the following is a link to my handicapping guide for a few of the more popular prop bets available from Bovada Sportsbook as originally posted on Bang the Book.
