Wide Receiver The Philadelphia Eagles already boast one of the most diverse wide receiver corps in the NFL, but were still able to add another dynamic to their already dangerous offense when they selected Marvin McNutt in the sixth round of the NFL Draft. At 6’4”, 216 pounds, McNutt will come in and compete with Riley Cooper to become the team’s big-bodied red-zone threat.  He finished his senior year at Iowa with 82 receptions, 1,315 yards and 12 touchdowns while proving himself as ...

Vick Still a Top Five QB

Michael Vick burned all his owners last season, including me. But it’s a new year and Mike has another opportunity to prove his critics wrong. The studs are set.
