If you're an Eagles fan looking toward the 2012 draft, here are a couple of players to watch on Saturday:
Georgia vs. LSU (4 p.m., CBS)
Cordy Glenn, OTOG, Georgia, No. 71
I know if Andy Reid (assuming he's still with us next season) drafts another guard the city will collectively scream, but Glenn is a special talent. A starter since his freshman year, Glenn (6-6336) has played both inside and out for the Bulldogs. He's a polished run blocker who locks on to defenders and buries them. While he has good enough feet to compete at tackle in the NFL, his ideal position probably will be inside, where that agility would be put to good use in Howard Mudd's blocking scheme. Look for Glenn at left tackle today. With the Eagles currently possessing a Top 10 pick in the 2012 draft, I wouldn't expect them to reach for a guy like Glenn that early. But, if Glenn slides into the top of the second round, all bets are off.
Wisconsin vs. Michigan State (8 p.m., FOX)
Aaron Henry, S, Wisconsin, No. 7
Maybe I'm being premature here, but the Eagles have appear to have swung and missed on Nate Allen. No one was a bigger fan of his before the 2010 draft than I was, but the knee injury, questionable reads and a lack of physical play have soured me on him. Henry is a team captain and the heart of the Badgers defense. Not an overly big guy (6-0208) or particularly physical presence, Henry seems to be wherever the ball is. The red-shirt senior is mature and plays hard. Henry isn't an elite talent, and probably isn't as gifted coming out of school as Allen was, but he just a pure baller and the Eagles need more of those. He could go anywhere from the late third round on.
Oklahoma vs. Oklahoma State (8 p.m., ABC)
Ronnell Lewis, DEOLB, Oklahoma, No. 56
The linebacker play Thursday night was a nightmare (again) and there has been little hint that it will improve in 2012 with this same cast of characters. Unfortunately for Eagles fans we might not get to see Ronnell Lewis play today because of a sprained knee he incurred in the Sooners' loss to Baylor two weeks ago. Lewis (6-2244), a junior and in his first season as a full-time starter, is a powerful player who plays a hybrid DEOLB. He is strong, agile and, most importantly, he tackles. Lewis hits hard and knows how to wrap up something sorely needed in this town. Check out this link to see what Oklahoma may be missing in today's Bedlam Game. If he decides to come out I fully expect Lewis to be a mid to late first-round pick.
