Mychal Kendricks


Recommended Posts

The Philadelphia Inquirer suggests the Eagles could land a second- or third-round pick for ILB Mychal Kendricks.

The writing is on the wall for Kendricks, as he's entering the final year of his contract while the Eagles traded for ILB Kiko Alonso and extended ILB DeMeco Ryans this offseason. He's expected to be another talented victim of Chip Kelly's purge of the previous regime. A Day 2 pick is steep for a player that will likely be available in free agency next March, but perhaps Kendricks could be used to sweeten a trade-up for Kelly Thursday night.

I would love a trade for Kendricks, he's one of the most underrated linebackers in football. He remarkably managed 4 sacks, 8 hits, 15 hurries in 122 pass rushes in 2015, and he recorded a +9.5 PFF coverage grade. Still, tough trade to work out, with the whole contract thing.

As I have posted several times, I would take advantage of Chip's man crush on Mariota.

We give Philly our #8. Philly gives us their #20, Mychal Kendricks and Vinny Curry.

Philly trades their newly acquired #8, Sam Bradford, their second round pick this year and their first rounder next year for the #2 pick in this draft.

Tennessee gets:

1. A veteran QB to step into the starting role for two seasons, while Metsenberger develops.

2. A top-ten draft pick to draft Scherff. They build an excellent OL for the developing QB.

3. A second round pick to draft a DL/pass rusher.

4. A 2016 first round pick.

Philly gets:

Marcus Mariota and they still keep plenty of picks this year to provide young depth to the roster. They acquire their franchise QB without gutting their roster (they have already accounted for Curry's and Kendrick's departures) or heavily mortgaging their future.

Atlanta gets:

1. A proven edge rusher that is only 26 years old.

2. A MLB that has excellent coverage skills....also only 26 years old.

3. A #20 pick to draft an OT/OG. This allows ATL to get ahead of the expected run on OL's in the early part of round two.

This trade would allow us to value shop the entire draft. Heck, if they wanted to, they could trade down in the second round to pick up and extra pick in 2016.

This one move could put Dimitroff into Belechick Mode..... setting up future drafts.

We still have a fair amount of cap space. Signing Curry and Kendricks to extensions should not be a problem. Julio's contract can be structured to shift most of the cap hit to year #2.

Could probably get him for a 3rd and swap of 4th or 5th round picks. I'd be fine with giving a 2nd for him talent wise. He'd probably be the best LB in this draft. Only reason i would be hesitant is because of the fact that he could be a free agent next year so there is leverage there for any team wanting to get him.

We can easily afford him with our cap space and our LB's aren't taking up much cap anyways.

There are three more days before the draft.

Yea, but this source specifically mentioned Thursday night. Could something be worked out preemptively? Obviously. But we don't know that so I'm not going to operate on that idea for the time being. For what it's worth, I would love to see this guy play for the Falcons, so I support your trade proposal

Yeah he's been kinda mediocre for the Eagles. And he definitely wouldn't play MLB.

I wouldn't say that Kendricks is mediocre

In 2014:

83 tackles 4 sacks and 3 forced fumbles

In 2013:

106 tackles, 4 sacks, 3 ints, and 2 forced fumbles.

Kendricks is actually pretty good and is only 24 years old.

Kendricks can play both the WLB and MLB spots.

Kendricks is highly overrated here.

I am not sure about over rated. The way I look at personnel decisions is this: Look for improvement, not home runs. What that means is that personnel moves should be aimed at improving every single position. Sometimes you add a star, but more often, all you need is a better player.

In my opinion, Mychal Kendricks is better than Worrilow. And, MK has a better injury history that Durant. That makes MK a desirable acquisition.

In my proposed trade, we would give up a shot at Ray, Beasley and Dupree, but add Vinny Curry. Is Curry going to be a much better player than the three prospects? I don't know, but I prefer to go with a proven commodity than a gamble on greatness.

Kelly is all smoke screen. I can't imagine he makes a move for Mariota with the QB cluster he has.

Part of a deal with Tennessee would have to include Sam Bradford.

It is interesting that the Eagles signed Tim Tebow. TT is a very mobile QB. He may not be starting material, but he might be a good back up for a QB like Mariota.

Kendricks is almost purely a WLB in the NFL imo
