Coach Doug Pederson said Sam Bradford would be in danger of losing the starting job if he continues to stay away from the team into the summer.

Obviously. Bradford remains M.I.A. from the team since demanding a trade when it was revealed the Eagles would take a quarterback at No. 2 overall, and he's still not answering calls from Pederson as he continues to pout at home. "Anybody that’s not in any of the 32 offseason programs is losing valuable time at that club," Pederson said. "So anybody that’s not in the offseason program, yes, would lose the time." Bradford may end up costing himself the starting job and be stuck in Philly where he doesn't want to be.

Eagles signed Texas WR Marcus Johnson.

Johnson (6'1/204) made 18 starts in four years at Texas, wrapping his career with a 61-793-4 (13.0 YPR) receiving line. Although he wasn't an impact college player, Johnson tested out like an NFL athlete with 4.37 speed, an 11-foot-4 broad jump, and 22 bench-press reps at the Longhorns' Pro Day. Johnson has an extensive special teams background, which will be his ticket to an NFL roster spot.

Eagles signed Arizona WR Cayleb Jones.

Jones (6'3/209) spent two seasons at U of A after transferring from Texas, wrapping his college career with a 130-1,958-14 (15.06 YPR) receiving line. Jones' stock took a hit at the Combine, where he ran 4.65 with a 33 1/2-inch vertical and 9-foot-4 broad jump, also managing only nine reps on the bench. Jones' lack of separation skills shows up on tape, and he has a checkered off-field history, getting arrested for felony aggravated assault as a Texas freshman. Despite being a productive college player, Jones faces major obstacles to last as an NFL wideout.

Eagles coach Doug Pederson says he's yet to have contact with Sam Bradford since the quarterbacks' trade request.

Pouting Sam remains inconsolable, even after the Broncos' selection of Payton Lynch took them off the board of potential suitors. The reality is, Bradford has nowhere to go, and will be in Philadelphia competing with Carson Wentz and Chase Daniel this season. The sooner he realizes that, the better. The Eagles could have handled the situation better, but Bradford is well compensated. This is life in the NFL for mediocre quarterbacks.
Apr 30 - 8:19 PM

Eagles signed Oregon RB Byron Marshall.

Marshall (5'9/201) converted from tailback to receiver before missing all but four games as a senior with a fractured ankle, finishing his career with a 307-1,877-19 (6.1 YPC) rushing line and 97-1,293-8 (13.3 YPR) receiving. Healthy in time for the Ducks' Pro Day, Marshall clocked a 4.56 forty-yard dash. Marshall isn't a between-the-tackles threat and is a developmental-at-best slot receiver, but he has some potential as a satellite back who could excel on 5-9 manufactured touches per game. Still coming back from last September's injury, Marshall is sort of a deep sleeper.
Apr 30 - 7:40 PM

Eagles signed Stanford DL Aziz Shittu.

Shittu (6'2/288) earned first-team All-Pac 12 in his lone season as a starter, ranking second on the Cardinal in tackles (57), leading the team in tackles for loss (14), and registering four sacks. He exposed himself as a poor athlete at Stanford's Pro Day, running 5.41 with a 29 1/2-inch vertical. Shittu (pronounced SHIT-too) was an overachieving college defensive tackle who lacks NFL-level penetration ability and will have to make his living as an undersized run defender. It could be a tough ride.
Apr 30 - 7:15 PM

Eagles signed Boston College LB Connor Wujciak.

Wujciak (6'3/291) started 3 1/2 seasons at B.C., tallying 21.5 career tackles for loss, 7.5 sacks, and three forced fumbles. Selected first-team All-ACC as a senior, Wujciak showed NFL-level athleticism by posting the top SPARQ score among defensive linemen at the Combine. Despite his athletic profile, Wujciak is an average run stopper and lacks the burst and get-off of a three-technique pass rusher. There was some pre-draft buzz that Wujciak could play interior offensive line in the pros.
Apr 30 - 7:05 PM

Eagles signed Utah State WR Hunter Sharp

Sharp (6'0/198) was a two-year starter for the Aggies after transferring from JUCO, posting a combined 137-1,774-16 (12.9 YPR) receiving line and returning a kickoff for a touchdown as a senior. He showed sub-par athleticism at the Combine, running 4.58 with a 32 1/2-inch vertical and 9-foot-8 broad jump. Quick and instinctive, Sharp's best chance at an NFL future would be to play slot receiver and special teams. He isn't going to win on the perimeter.
Apr 30 - 7:03 PM

Eagles selected Oregon LB Joe Walker with the No. 251 overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft.

Walker (6'2/236) boosted his stock by having a strong Pro Day, running 4.60 with a 37.5-inch vertical and 10-foot-4 broad jump. He "wowed" scouts that day, putting himself on the map. Walker will have to keep it up and shine in camp and preseason to try and notch a special teams role in Philly.
Apr 30 - 6:36 PM

Eagles selected Florida DE Alex McCalister with the No. 240 overall pick of the 2016 NFL draft.

McCalister (6'6/239) turned pro after his redshirt junior campaign, only starting six college games but piling up 18.5 career tackles for loss, 15.5 sacks, six interceptions and seven forced fumbles. McCalister has incredibly long arms (36") and good athleticism, running 4.80 with a 10-foot-8 broad jump and terrific agility scores in Indy. Unfortunately, McCalister was kicked off the UF team last December and is a major project. McCalister's calling card is his elite get-off after the snap. He has a low floor, but upside as a potential rush end-'backer in sub-packages.
Apr 30 - 6:13 PM

Eagles selected LSU DB Jalen Mills with the No. 233 overall pick of the 2016 NFL draft.

Mills (6'0/191) played safety and nickel back at LSU, tallying eight career tackles for loss and six interceptions across 44 starts. Although Mills ran 4.61 in Indy, he excelled in the vertical (37") and broad (10'3") jumps as well as agility tests. Mills isn't a physical box safety, but he's a fluid athlete who can hold his own in center field and drop down to cover the slot. Albeit perhaps not a true difference maker, Mills' versatility should keep him in the league as a sub-package defensive back at worst. Mills played corner at the Senior Bowl and was running routes for opposing receivers.
Apr 30 - 5:58 PM

Eagles selected Auburn CB Blake Countess with the No. 196 overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft.

Countess (5'10/184) transferred to Auburn after a stint at Michigan and profiles as a slot corner with a willingness to come up and hit versus the run. He'll have to earn his keep on special teams out of the gate.
Apr 30 - 4:33 PM

Eagles selected TCU G/T Halapoulivaati Vaitai with the No. 164 overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft.

Vaitai (6'6/320) made 30 starts for the Horned Frogs, moving from right tackle to the left side as a senior and earning second-team All-Big 12. With long arms (34 1/4") and big hands (10 5'8"), Vaitai has the dimensions of an NFL blind-side tackle. Vaitai's game tape reveals a slow-footed mover who lacks the requisite power to play on the right side. Vaitai's Combine measurables were good enough that he's worth a look, but he's unlikely to develop into a meaningful NFL contributor.
Apr 30 - 3:14 PM

Eagles selected West Virginia RB Wendell Smallwood with the No. 153 overall pick of the 2016 NFL draft.

Smallwood (5'11/208) left school following his junior year after posting a career rushing line of 425-2,462-12 (5.79 YPC) with 68 receptions. He led the Big 12 in rushing in 2015. Smallwood showed breakaway speed in Indy, blazing 4.47 with a 10-foot broad jump and strong agility scores. Smallwood was known more for grinding between the tackles at West Virginia, in addition to plus passing-game skills. His pre-draft workout metrics hint at the potential for more. An underrated prospect, Smallwood is a sleeper to monitor for fantasy purposes. From a fake football standpoint, Smallwood's landing spot was strong behind only aging Darren Sproles and brittle starter Ryan Mathews.
Apr 30 - 2:40 PM

Eagles selected Oregon State G/C Isaac Seumalo with the No. 79 overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft.

Seumalo (6'4/303) made 37 starts for the Beavers, seeing action at center, right guard, and both tackle spots. Seumalo's arm length (33") is good enough for anywhere on the interior. A light-footed athlete who ran 5.19 and shined in Combine agility drills, Seumalo was a terrific pass protector as a senior, permitting just five QB pressures despite shuttling around the line. Seumalo has a future as a starting center in the league, and can also play guard.
