The Eagles did not聽picks a running Authentic Terry O’Reilly Jersey back with any of their five selections in the NFL Draft.
They didn’t wait long immediately afterwards to add one.
Saturday, the Eagles signed Notre Dame running back Josh Adams as an undrafted free agent, a person familiar with the situation confirmed to NJ Advance Media.

3. He’s their聽tallest聽running back. Allen’s stature is intriguing. He’s not the heaviest running back on the Eagles roster at 213 pounds, but he’s easily聽their tallest at 6-foot-2. He聽was a decent receiver in college (41 career catches for 336 yards) but with that size, he could develop into an intriguing pass-catching option.
4.聽Possible Blount replacement? The Eagles lost veteran LeGarrette Blount in free agency. Blount was a big, bruising running back, and Adams carries a similar style. He doesn’t have much speed, but NFL.com described him as built like a monster and comfortable as a downhill battering ram.
The Dallas Cowboys used the No. 1 overall pick on Troy Aikman and the No. 1 pick in the supplemental draft on Steve Walsh in 1989, but no team has ever committed two first-round picks in one draft to that position. Two quarterbacks have been selected by one team in the same draft only three times this decade, and on all three of those occasions, the second signal-caller was drafted on Day 3.
Nigel Harris Authentic Jersey So yes, taking two quarterbacks early in the draft would be unorthodox and even unprecedented. But the reality is doing so would be logical in this case. In fact, though it would inevitably cause many of us to spontaneously mock the same old Browns, an argument can be made that Cleveland would be smart to use its Nos. 1 and 4 overall selections on quarterbacks.
You’ll notice that every scenario above works out the same in terms of the end result regarding whether or not a franchise quarterback is born in Cleveland.
The draft is a crapshoot, and if the Browns select a quarterback first overall and then another player fourth overall, there’s still a decent chance that other player will become a bust. So why not double the odds of finding that franchise quarterback by taking two of the Big Four quarterbacks in this draft?
Sure, if they both bust, they’ll have more egg on their face than if just one quarterback had busted. But egg is egg, and it would reside on their face regardless.
