Eagles reel in three draft picks

Adam Caplan of Scout.com reports that the Eagles have come to terms with seventh-round picks Jamar Chaney and Jeff Owens.

Chaney, a linebacker out of Mississippi State, was a three-year starter for the Bulldogs, leading the team with 90 tackles as a senior.  His draft stock was likely hurt by a junior season in which he missed all but one game after breaking his leg.  Chaney stands an impressive 6-foot-1, 241, and ran an even more impressive forty time of 4.54 at February’s Scouting Combine.
Caplan reports Chaney’s signing bonus slightly exceeds $60,000.
Owens, a defensive tackle from Georgia, was originally a monster recruit out of high school, but never made an All-SEC team in five years as a Bulldog.  He faces an uphill battle to make the Eagles’ roster behind Brodrick Bunkley, Mike Patterson, Antonio Dixon, Trevor Laws, and fellow rookie Daniel Te’o-Nesheim.  Te’o-Nesheim, a third-round pick and college defensive end, is ticketed for interior pass-rushing duties in Philadelphia.
Caplan reports Owens’ signing bonus is worth just over $44.000.
UPDATE: The Eagles also announced the signing of fourth-round pick Trevard Lindley, a cornerback out of Kentucky.  Versed in press coverage, Lindley is competing for snaps in the Birds’ nickel and dime packages.
The Eagles have signed four five of their 13 draft picks.

    I was surprised that Chaney slid that far…. he has the tools and size to be a very solid LB at the NFL level.
    The birds are usually one of the first teams to get picks signed and ready to go. It’s nice to see that continue even with the front office changes.

    More scrubs at the bottom of the heap. I’m an Eagles fan and I know these dudes will never contribute. The Eagles who once said they were the “Gold Standard” love nothing more than 6th and 7th round draft picks. If they could trade all of their picks and take the last ten picks of the 7th round, they would love nothing more.

    VALUE BETS //// its like every year they could complete their team by trading their late picks to move up and get 4-5 studs that can make moves to play right away.
    Instead they drop down to get 9-13 players from round 4 and lower that MIGHT make the team.
    and they need to wake the F up and realize the NFL is gettin bigger every year. this aint 05′ —- a D line with an average weight of 275 aint gonna cut it. especially playing a two gap system you asses.
    Look at harbough down in Baltimore. all he gets are HOGGGGGS to play D line. this lets players with talent make plays behind them.
    either get bigger guys or play the one gap system.
    and stop walkin your backers up and advertising your blitzes / makin a bum like romo look like a superstar makin changes at the line cause you show him what you are doing.
    OR have the skins and giants RUN ALL OVER YOU AGAIN.
    Trevor Laws,Bryan Smith,Jack Ikegwuonu,Andy Studebaker,Victor Abiamiri,Tony Hunt,C.J. Gaddis,Rashad Barksdale,Jeremy Bloom,Jerome McDougle,Thomas Tapeh,Andy Hall,Paul Fanaika,Matt McCoy,Ryan Moats, Sean Considine,Scott Young,Calvin Armstrong,J.R. Reed,Trey Darilek,Thomas Tapeh,Andy Hall

    reeled in those picks, eh?

    @jibfest
    Yes, it’s the Gold Standard that the 3 Stooges have created. Don’t forget these 3 bozo’s, in their own mind, invented football, now you know they need camp bodies, and a 60 g signing bonus to them is pure gold. If one of em latches on as a special teams or practice squad player, then hell, they can pass along the savings to the average fan….Afterall, they have enriched your life so much with this Gold Standard, you should be grateful….

    Owens??
    Hell–that guy should try to get number 81, and any Philly fans that HAVEN’T burnt their old jerseys will be set.

    Given that Teo’Neshiam was under 270lbs at the combine, he’ll be an interesting guy to see rush from the interior.

    @myeaglescantwin-
    Haha, its tough being an Eagles fan.

    jibfest…
    What round was Tom Brady taken in?
    How about Seth Joyner? Or Clyde the Glide?
    Birds have traded up as much as they have traded down. Given the outcome of the former (Mamula, McDougle) I’d rather see them trade down.
    You seem to be operating off pure emotion.

  14. jibfest says: Jun 4, 2010 5:21 PM

    Mooch, I can’t believe you chose Tom Brady as your example. First off, he doesn’t play for the Eagles, he never did. The next time there is a 3 time SuperBowl championship winning QB drafted in the 6th round, that will still not prove your point.
    Second of all, I’m talking about this current regime of ownership. Take a look at the bums drafted by Reid that “myeaglescantwin” posted. Here you go:
    Trevor Laws,Bryan Smith,Jack Ikegwuonu,Andy Studebaker,Victor Abiamiri,Tony Hunt,C.J. Gaddis,Rashad Barksdale,Jeremy Bloom,Jerome McDougle,Thomas Tapeh,Andy Hall,Paul Fanaika,Matt McCoy,Ryan Moats, Sean Considine,Scott Young,Calvin Armstrong,J.R. Reed,Trey Darilek,Thomas Tapeh,Andy Hall
    Sure, Trent Cole was like a 5th round pick. Of course if you are drafting mostly at the end of the draft, you are bound to strike gold eventually.
    You seem to be operating off pure stupidity.

    Well well, sarcasm this early in the year, Giants are bitter already. Hey you sound like you are the type of person who hides his ProBowl Shockey jersery in his closet and pulls it out only when you are alone.
