Eagles signed seventh-round DL Brian Mihalik to a four-year contract.

Mihalik, the No. 237 overall pick, posted the second best SPARQ score among defensive linemen. At 6'9/302, he's a developmental project for DC Bill Davis. Mihalik will likely start out as a five-technique.

Eagles signed No. 196 overall pick CB Randall Evans to a four-year contract.

A sixth-round pick, Evans fits the Eagles' scheme as a rangy corner with plus speed. He stands a decent chance of making the 53-man roster.

Eagles signed No. 47 overall pick CB Eric Rowe to a four-year contract

Rowe is viewed highly by Chip Kelly, who traded up to get him in the second round. The Eagles plan to keep him at corner, where he'll compete with Walter Thurmond and Nolan Carroll opposite Byron Maxwell. An efficient tackler with press-man traits, Rowe projects as a Week 1 starter.

Eagles ILB Mychal Kendricks reported to Phase II of voluntary workouts Monday.

Kendricks was a no-show for Phase I as he was out of the country. Fittingly, his name was also hot in trade rumors ahead of the draft. After all was said and done, the Eagles drafted just one linebacker over the weekend -- ILB Jordan Hicks at No. 94. Over the weekend, coach Chip Kelly also said he expects Kendricks to remain part of the team this season. One of Kendricks, DeMeco Ryans, and Kiko Alonso isn't going to be a starter, if true. Kendricks is in the final year of his deal.

The Philadelphia Inquirer does not expect Evan Mathis to be traded or released now.

With the draft behind us, Mathis' window for a trade is closed. Since he has no leverage, he's going to have to (unhappily) play out his contract, which is set to pay him $5.5 million. It's great news for the Eagles, as Mathis is one of the best guards in the game. Their offensive line is aging but will be strong again with LT Jason Peters, LG Mathis, C Jason Kelce, RG Allen Barbre and RT Lane Johnson.

Chip Kelly insists Tim Tebow isn't just a camp arm.

"I think everybody here that we bring to our organization is here to compete for a job," Kelly said. "That's what Timmy is going to do. He's an unbelievable competitor." Kelly's comments come after Mark Sanchez suggested Tebow is just there to conduct drills in the offseason. We'll take Sanchez's side on this one.

Eagles signed San Jose State DT Travis Raciti.

Raciti (6'4/288) made 45 career starts at San Jose State, compiling 27 tackles for loss and 14.5 sacks. He was a second-team All-Mountain West pick as a senior. At the SJSU Pro Day, Raciti ran 5.12 with a 31 1/2-inch vertical and pumped 27 reps on the bench. A high-motor tweener, Raciti has experience at end in both 4-3 and 3-4 fronts. Due to a lack of desired bulk, Raciti best transitions as a rotational piece.

Eagles signed Delaware Valley WR Rasheed Bailey.

Bailey (6'1/205) tore up Division 3, earning several Offensive Player of the Year awards as a senior by posting an 80-1,707-19 receiving line in just 11 games. He is a favorite of Rotoviz metrics guru Jon Moore. Bailey's athletic profile is limited, however, after running 4.61 with a 9-foot-10 broad jump and 32-inch vertical at the Villanova Pro Day. Despite his small-college dominance, Bailey is an NFL long shot.
May 2 - 9:05 PM

Eagles signed UNLV WR Devante Davis.

Davis (6'3/220) was physically dominant in the Mountain West, parlaying 186 career catches into 2,785 yards (15.0 YPR) and 22 TDs. Davis would've reset the UNLV record books had he not missed five games with a wrist injury as a senior. Davis profiles similarly to Dwayne Bowe in his prime with 4.57 speed, a 35 1/2-inch vertical, and a 10-foot-1 broad jump. A top-notch ball tracker with sure hands, Davis has all the traits of a contributing NFL receiver with deceptive vertical ability. He is DFS aficionado Davis Mattek's favorite wideout in the 2015 class.
May 2 - 8:29 PM

Eagles signed UNLV G/T Brett Boyko.

Boyko (6'6/301) was a 41-game starter as the Rebels' blind-side protector, earning second-team All-Mountain West as a junior and senior. Short armed (32") with relatively small hands (9") considering his frame, Boyko is also a pedestrian mover, clocking a 5.60 forty in Indianapolis with an 8-foot-7 broad jump and painful 7.91 short shuttle time. Boyko is short on length, athleticism, and strength. He's going to have a tough time in the pros.

Eagles selected Boston College DL Brian Mihalik with the No. 237 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Mihalik (6'9/302) is one of the best athletes in this class, posting the second best SPARQ score among defensive linemen. The Eagles along with the Seahawks prioritize athleticism on the third day in the trenches. Mihalik played end and tackle at BC, but we wonder if he gets moved to offensive line.
May 2 - 5:54 PM

Eagles coach Chip Kelly confirmed LG Evan Mathis has been on the trade block for two seasons.

"Evan Mathis has been available for trade for two years," Kelly said, "and there have been no offers." Unhappy with his contract situation, Mathis is available for trade by his own request. The Eagles have given him the freedom to pursue a trade and new contract, but as of now Mathis has not found any takers. With the draft all but over, Mathis will likely remain with the Eagles in 2015. He is scheduled to make $5.5 million this season.
May 2 - 4:52 PM

Eagles selected Kansas State CB Randall Evans with the No. 196 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

The Eagles keep addressing their leaky secondary. Evans (6'0/195) fits Chip Kelly's mold as a rangy corner with plus speed (4.44). He started 31 career games and was a first-team All Big-12 selection in 2014. There's plenty of room on the depth chart for Evans to make the squad.
May 2 - 4:14 PM

Eagles selected Kansas CB JaCorey Shepherd with the No. 191 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Shepherd (5'11/199) converted from wideout to corner as a junior and emerged as an elite college cover man as a senior, earning first-team All-Big 12, ranking third nationally in pass breakups (19), and intercepting three passes. He had the lowest "burn rate" (32.9 percent) among draft-eligible cornerbacks in 2014. Although Shepherd was a legitimate shutdown corner in the Big 12, his ability to transition to the NFL is a major question mark. He is undersized, speed deficient (4.65/4.68), and a matador as a tackler, hindering Shepherd's projection to slot corner. Current Eagles slot corner Brandon Boykin is rumored to be on the trade block.
May 2 - 4:05 PM

Eagles coach Chip Kelly confirmed Sam Bradford will be with the team when the season begins.

NFL Network's Rich Eisen asked Kelly if it was safe to start selling Bradford jerseys. Kelly bristled somewhat at the question, saying, "It was safe the day after we traded for him." Bradford will need to stay healthy, but he has back-end QB1 upside in Kelly's offense.
