The Philadelphia Eagles wrapped up their rookie minicamp on Monday and there clearly seem to be some players winning early favor from the Eagles organization and head coach Andy Reid. One of those players is 2nd-round draft pick LB Mychal Kendricks. Reid praised what he saw from Kendricks, saying he “looked good out here.” The 5’11, 239 linebacker out of California and the other camp participants on defense worked a lot on blitzing, something Kendricks did well in college.  The coach liked what he saw there from the young linebacker there as well, saying “[General Manager] Howie [Roseman] and I told you when we took Mychal that it’s one of his strengths. He was really good at that in college. You can get a guy coming off the tight end side or the strong side and you feel comfortable with speed, agility, and the ability to adjust to make the tackle when he’s moving fast and furious to go forward.” Another impressive move from Kendricks at the rookie camp?

  • The Birds under Hindenberg Reid take the LB position for granted, the arrogance to think anyone can play the position has cost us the NFC Championship Game against Tampa Bay which was the last football @ the great Vet Staduim because the MLB who was a former Steeler ore 93 can't remember his name could catch a turtle, I guess going into year 14 they finally got it right. This kid is a beast nd a steal in round 2. He actually played the whole season with a broken hand or wrist and still on PAC 12 Defenive Player of the year. I believe they finally got it right
