Levitan: NFL Draft Fantasy Winners – Set the Race
3. Jalen Hurts, QB, Eagles – Underdog ranked 101st overall. Since last season, the Eagles traded Carson Wentz, used zero draft picks on the QBs and traded for DeVonta Smith. On the offensive line, studs RT Lane Johnson and RG Brandon Brooks are expected to return from late-season injuries. The wheels are in place for Jalen Hurts, who averaged 29.5 DraftKings points per game in his three full games last season. The rush ability will keep the weekly low at a high level and the addition of Smith adds an advantage to Hurts’ passing stats.
5 winners and 5 losers in the 2021 Eagles draft – BGN
WINNERS: Jalen Hurts. The Eagles could have caught Justin Fields at No.12. They could have stayed put, keep their extra third round and take the former Ohio State star if they hadn’t felt that Hurts was going to progress to a solid. QB in 2021. Of course, they also spent a lot of time taking care of the capital project next year to attack a QB either in free agency or in next year’s draft, but for this year Roseman and the coaching staff almost assured him that he would be. their starter. Smith’s selection also brings some of the best receiving talent to Philadelphia since DeSean Jackson was drafted, and being former teammates with Smith in Alabama can only be a good thing for their report. In the second round, the Eagles selected another former Hurts teammate, oft-injured center / guard Landon Dickerson, a mountain of a man who, if he’s healthy (and he’s a big if) could take Jason Kelce’s relay from 2022, offering real protection for injuries. Finally, in the fifth inning, the backfield received a potential boost with Memphis running back Kenneth Gainwell, a sleeper pick that most draft pundits believed to be a good deal for the Birds at No. 150 in total. Overall, the draft really couldn’t have gone better for Jalen Hurts.

LOSERS: RB Miles Sanders, Philadelphia Eagles. With the 150th pick overall, the Eagles selected Memphis RB Kenny Gainwell. That in itself wouldn’t seem so damaging, especially given the fifth-round draft capital, but Gainwell is emerging in this class as arguably the second-best receiver behind Clemson’s Travis Etienne. It comes shortly after signing a one-year contract with RB Jordan Howard. Again, it’s not a huge blow to Sanders’ value on its own, but each of those full-backs further darkens the running back room there in Philly, and Gainwell in particular, could bring a blow to Sanders’ rise as a wide receiver that Fantastic Managers had hoped for after drafting him as a Top 12 Dynasty over the past year.

The Eagles’ remaining holes to fill, post-draft and who can fill them – PhillyVoice
Casey Hayward (32 in September): Hayward is a former Pro Bowl performer whose career is in decline. For the purposes of the Eagles, he would be a good candidate for Band-Aid, as he’s at least durable, as he’s only missed two games in the past seven seasons. He also has indoor-outdoor versatility, which would be of some value if the Eagles intend to let Darius Slay follow the No.1 receivers again like he did in 2020.
Alignement / Draft Talk – Iggles Blitz
I always leave Rodney McLeod out of my depth charts because he got injured so late and feels unlikely to play anytime soon. This group is by no means convincing, but Wallace, Maddox and McPhearson are talented young players. They could be key parts of secondary progression. Harris could be re-signed and play for a few more years. Epps could be a good actor. We’ll have to see what new coaches can take from him. There are free agents who could be targets. Stevie Nelson is the main guy there. Its cost must come down. There could be CBs available through the trade. We’ll have to wait and see what we hear over the next few months. Next March, the Eagles will have plenty of cap room. They can be aggressive in seeking secondary help. The project should be much deeper so that they can have better options as well. Howie and the front office know high school isn’t good enough. It is functional for now, but needs long-term help.
Eagles draft signals extra support for Jalen Hurts in 2021 – ESPN
Soon, calmer vibes will give way to the intensity of the NFL season, and reality will settle on what 2021 is: a tryout for Hurts. There have already been reports linking the Eagles to Russell Wilson of Seattle and Deshaun Watson of Houston. After going 1-3 as a starter and completing 52% of his passes in his rookie season, questions remain internally as to whether Hurts is the long-term answer to the quarterback. Philadelphia has up to three first-round picks next season – the quarterback Capital is expected to underperform Hurts in 2021.

Does Washington now have the most dangerous offense in NFC East? – Hogs Haven
The Eagles bring up the back of the NFC East. It’s not that they don’t have talent, but aside from the tight end and running back, that talent has yet to produce. The Eagles will head into 2021 with a new starter below the center, two tiny but quick wide receivers on the outside, and a fragile offensive line at best. It’ll likely be a whole different conversation in a few years, but right now the danger level isn’t too high.
Report: Dallas Cowboys won’t pick Leighton Vander Esch’s fifth-year option for 2022 – Blogging The Boys
You never want to find yourself in a situation where you don’t pick the fifth year option of a first player these days and that’s definitely uncharted territory for the Cowboys. The only players who haven’t had the switch reversed for them since the 2011 CBA were Morris Claiborne (who re-signed with the team for a one-year contract during the 2016 season which would have d ‘elsewhere been his option season) and Taco Charlton. (who was cut in his third season with the team). Vander Esch played incredibly well during his rookie season and looked like a lock on the path the Cowboys first-round players before him had taken until the option years had passed. Unfortunately, his biggest problem has been staying on the pitch as he has only played 35 of 48 possible games in his first three seasons.
4 winners and 2 losers in the 2021 NFL draft – SB Nation
LOSER: Conventional wisdom says that a writer should always give a Cowboys Draft a high mark because that’s how you get those pretty slices – but I really didn’t care what Dallas did throughout the draft. . The team didn’t do enough to help Dak Prescott on the offensive line, waiting for the fourth round to get one of two offensive linemen in that class. Yes, the Cowboys needed a lot of help on defense as well, but each of their picks after Parsons looked like a litter based on the board. The whole strategy seemed a bit static. As if the War Room had a handful of names they wanted to get, regardless of how the project unfolded around it. Also, allowing the Eagles to trade for extremely fair value so they could take DeVonta Smith was far too generous for a division rival.

U.S. Covid-19 final could be much closer than you think – Vox
As the rollout of the U.S. Covid-19 vaccine began last December, White House medical adviser Anthony Fauci said the herd immunity threshold for the coronavirus could be 80 to 90 percent. The implication was demoralizing: America would need to vaccinate up to 90% of its population to truly stop the virus from spreading freely. With around 20% of the population still resisting getting vaccinated, near universal vaccination seems highly unlikely – which led a recent New York Times article to suggest that herd immunity might be impossible. But recent data from Israel paints a more encouraging picture: With around 60% of its population vaccinated, Israel has managed to almost completely reopen its economy and reduce the number of coronavirus cases and deaths to almost zero. The country still has some requirements in place – particularly interior masking and passport requirements for vaccines – but it’s much closer to normal than it could afford, with a guarantee of safety, just a few months ago.
