    Living in the Philly area, I've seen this guy play alot. He is a rotation guy with potential to take that 3rd spot.

    With that being said, he had a very serious injury last year. He had a seizure during training camp, which was caused by a tangling of blood vessels in the brain. Its a life-time thing, so there is that to worry about.
    The only good race is at suicide pace, and today looks like a good day to die

      Nnamdi was one of the worst CBs in the NFL last year.

The Eagles are known to have a quick athletic line that is great rushing the passer and so so when it comes to strength at the point of attack defending the run, especially when you run straight at them.
        It didn't help that they had to play in that asinine wide 9 defense.
        I'm generally optimistic about the interior of the defensive line now, I mean can they get any worse then last season?

          Also, Patterson was dealing with the brain vessel stuff last year, so he didn't even play very much.

            Great point, and no I don't see how it could get worse this year. I'm not 100% on this, but from what I remember I think Mike Patterson is a credible run stuffer.

            Because of all of the effort and examination being poured into these predictions, the draft is a robust market that, in the aggregate, does a good job of sorting prospects from top to bottom.1 Yet despite so many people trying to “beat the market,” no single actor can do it consistently. Abnormal returns are likely due to luck, not skill. But that hasn’t stopped NFL executives from behaving with the confidence of traders.

              It's okay. I will come back and say 'I told you so' next year.

                I'm sure Nnamdi will play better, but I don't think he's an elite corner anymore.

                Believe it or not, his stats were worse than Webster's last season.

                  I was actually hoping for mike patterson, former 1st round talent..was always noticeable inside, not great but active played well with Jenkins in Philly. That shows they must think Austin is a bust too. Wouldn't surprise me if they kept kuhn over the 2nd round Marvin.

                    If he doesn't get to the QB this year possibly. Even though many don't think they play rookies, if they draft a DE in the 1st he will play this year and he will not be replacing JPP.

                      i got the same feeling when he got hardly any reps last year.

                      if he doesnt show "a lot" camp it could seriously affect his employment!

                        Love it Patterson was a great run defender and def will help in that department. Man its shaping up to look like we are going defense in this years draft.

                          If Austin shows up out of shape again they may just cut him on the spot. This guy better be hitting the gym hard. He has A LOT to prove.

                            I hope his head stays together. If he can clog up that middle, all we need are some good LB's. Go Giants!

                              The DT's were very lackluster last year mainly because injuries took its toll. Competition is going to be great, can't wait to see who the final 4 will be.
