Jimmy is down in Mobile with me. Here is his take on what he saw Monday.
He got a bit of a scoop. Check this out.
According to a source, Miami OT Seantrel Henderson was removed from the Eagles’ board completely. In 2010, Henderson was the #2 high school prospect in the country, according to Rivals.com. The Eagles have a recent history of drafting, signing, and trading for players who were formerly elite high school prospects. However, his career at Miami has been marred by suspensions and other character concerns. Chip Kelly seems to place a high value on player interviews.
A snippet from one of Kelly’s post-draft press conferences last year:
“There were a couple kids at the combine that just were kind of off the charts when we interviewed them. Two of them we had the opportunity to take. Bennie Logan was one of them and Matt Barkley.”
Obviously, the Eagles drafted both Logan and Barkley. The Senior Bowl is often the first opportunity that teams get to interview some players. The Eagles may not have liked what they heard from Henderson.
Jimmy also has a picture of Trent Murphy’s giant hand. His fingers are like 6-inches long. Crazy.
