What terrible timing for our loyal readers and commenters— the EYE Comments section is still down, as is the case with the entire USA Today sports network. I don’t know what the cause of the problem can be, could it possibly be related to a COVID-19 lockdown or layoff at the “comments company”? Whatever, it’s a huge annoyance and it has hurt participation in the 14th annual MACH 10 Challenge.
But the show must go on.
SATURDAY MORNING UPDATE!!!
We stay put and draft a developmental QB in the 2nd Round!! WHAAT??
Jalen Hurts, QB, Alabama/Oklahoma at overall #53… then it got a tad more real when we drafted Davion Taylor, a linebacker/safety hybrid out of Colorado, at overall #103. We will have more on these picks later…
With 4 more rounds to go, we have 3 (three) MACHers tied for the lead with two (2) correct predictions each— GK BRIZER, AFRA and KENT PHIL.

Some guys also submitted an optional list of 3 UDFA’s for tiebreaker purposes. I won’t get into that unless absolutely necessary, since the downfall of the Comments section has obscured the archival data. For the main entries above, I’m working off separate paper records which I transcribed before the Comments crashed.
So, this is how it shapes up for Friday night: on Day 2 of the draft, the Eagles have one scheduled pick in each of the two rounds, sitting at No. 53 and No. 103.
- Round 1 — No. 21 — Jalen Reagor
- Round 2 — No. 53
- Round 3 — No. 103 (compensatory)
- Round 4 — No. 127
- Round 4 — No. 145 (compensatory)
- Round 4 — No. 146 (compensatory)
- Round 5 — No. 168
- Round 6 — No. 190
