From today’s Philadelphia Inquirer…
“In other news, a source close to the situation said that the Eagles would be bringing in Notre Dame wide receiver Maurice Stovall to meet with their personnel staff. The graduate of Archbishop Carroll High School is projected to be drafted in the second or third round.”
The Patriots are also said to have a lot of interest in Stovall. With the Eagles wide receiver situation, I have to think that there is no way Stovall makes it past the Eagles if he is still on the board when they pick int he 2nd round.
The Birds lost Owens (who I now hate more than any other athlete in all of sports) and have just Greg Lewis, Todd Pinkston, Jabar Gaffney, and Reggie Brown. None are big, physical receivers which would make Stovall a perfect fit. The Eagles also run a fairly complicated offense which Stovall should be able to pick up easily after playing under Weis.
Also in the news recently… the Seahawks are showing some interest in Corey Mays. From a Seahawk’s insider report…
“I started off as a highly touted linebacker coming out of Chicago out of the Morgan Park High School, to give it a little notoriety. It’s been a long road. I’m just trying to find a place and just go out there ” Click here for the rest of the article
It would be nice to see Mays get drafted and not have to go the undrafted free agent route. He could be a pretty good special teams player in the NFL.
