Chip Kelly has remained discreet about his requirements for certain positions, but not cornerback. Since arriving in Philadelphia, Kelly's search for tall, long, physical cornerbacks has not been a secret. "Obviously we'd like all our corners to be 6-2-plus and long and that's the ideal world," Kelly said in November. "There's not a ton of them out there. " The NFL draft starts Thursday, and it's an opportune time to find a cornerback who fits the Eagles' prototype. Although talent is ultimately what will sway the Eagles to pick a player, look for the Eagles to target cornerbacks who are at least 6 feet tall with long arms.

EVERY YEAR when the NFL draft rolls around, we end up talking about "character" at some point. This year, the subject seems especially relevant, given the dominant story of the Eagles' offseason - the stunning release of 27-year-old Pro Bowl wideout DeSean Jackson. Of course, Eagles coach Chip Kelly said last week that jettisoning Jackson was purely a football decision, and team chairman Jeffrey Lurie talked about Kelly reconfiguring what the Eagles want from the wideout position.

Howie Roseman dropped an anvil on anyone who thought the Eagles would draft a safety in this week's draft. "In terms of the safety class," the general manager said, "I don't think it's a good group overall. I think you're talking about a drop-off, certainly when you get into Saturday. " It's possible Roseman was throwing some good-natured misdirection at reporters and the rest of the NFL when he spoke on Thursday. If one of the Eagles' top-rated safeties drops into their laps, they would be hard-pressed to pass.

When the Eagles are on the clock near 11 p.m. Thursday during the first round of the NFL draft, the team's brain trust will look at a board that categorizes prospects by position and how they are projected to develop. Under wide receiver , they'll likely see an abundance of talent available for the No. 22 overall pick. And when the Eagles are on the clock for the No. 54 overall pick, on Friday, they will experience a case of deja vu. At No. 86 a few hours later, the Eagles could be in the same situation.

If the Eagles are looking for DeSean Jackson's "replacement," they need to look no further than to their own roster and tight end Zach Ertz. The Eagles, of course, have added two pieces - Jeremy Maclin and Darren Sproles - to supplement the 2013 production that left with Jackson. But of their current players, Ertz has perhaps the best chance to dramatically increase his numbers now that Jackson is in Washington, especially if the second-year tight end delivers upon Eagles expectations.

Well, it was just another week with those chatterbox Eagles. All three major players in the team's hierarchy - Jeffrey Lurie, Chip Kelly, and Howie Roseman - were available to share their thoughts with the public. Blah, blah, blah. You just can't shut up these guys. Kelly emerged to say that releasing DeSean Jackson five weeks ago was a "purely football decision"; Lurie said, "What he said"; and Roseman held a wide-ranging predraft confab with the beat writers in which he confirmed everything except the stuff you couldn't probably figure out on your own. Perhaps all this exposure, which arrived after a month of stonewalling and hiding, was a coincidence, or perhaps an acknowledgment that the organization believes it is time to make nice with the paying public again or toss a bone in its direction.

Howie Roseman has had more time to prepare for the draft, scheduled for next week, than ever before. It has allowed for free April weekends for the Eagles' personnel staff, which previously spent the time between the league meetings and the draft in exhaustive preparation. The draft, moved this year from late April to early May, begins Thursday, and it's different from most others in the general manager's tenure. Roseman is armed with only six picks - he averaged 10.25 during his four previous drafts - and the No. 22 selection in the first round is the latest he has picked since 2011.

WHEN THE safety position came up, reporters covering Howie Roseman's annual predraft media briefing yesterday heard a lot about Malcolm Jenkins, Nate Allen, Earl Wolff and even Chris Maragos, but not so much about available prospects. The upshot seemed to be, don't have your heart set on a first-round safety. Or maybe on any kind of safety, though the May 8-10 draft is supposed to be one of the deepest ever. "In terms of the safety class, I don't think it's a good group overall," the Eagles' general manager said.

NEARLY A MONTH after their controversial decision to release DeSean Jackson, the Eagles finally got around to addressing why they got rid of the three-time Pro Bowl wide receiver. Head coach Chip Kelly, general manager Howie Roseman and owner Jeff Lurie all took turns kind of, sort of, answering the why'd-you-dump-DeSean question yesterday at the team's 18th annual playground build at Prince Hall Elementary School in North Philadelphia. In a major upset, Lurie, who is a very nice man but usually is about as quotable as my sneakers, actually shed the most light on the reason for Jackson's departure.

Even before they released DeSean Jackson, it was clear the Eagles were likely to select a wide receiver in the draft in May. Now it is a necessity, although the Eagles won't have to stray from their promise to select the best available player. That's because - as general manager Howie Roseman said in February at the NFL combine - every round will have a receiver the team covets. The Jackson jettison just made it more probable the Eagles will expend an early-round selection on the position.
