BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Remember when Eagles coach Andy Reid compared Jaiquawn Jarrett to Brian Dawkins? It's true; he did, just after the Eagles selected the Temple safety in the draft last year. Well, Jarrett still may be a long way from the former Eagles great; heck, he may be a long way from starting in the NFL. But the second-year safety brought a little of the nastiness that Reid said he would bring during Sunday's physical and physically demanding afternoon practice. "Coach [Todd]

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - It's a long fall from second-round draft pick to roster cut, but Jaiquawn Jarrett appears set to make that descent in record time. Selected 54th overall in the 2011 NFL draft, the safety is battling to secure a spot on the Eagles' 53-man roster. How is that so? When you are splitting second- and third-team repetitions with a journeyman who has three career starts, your job is on the line. Jarrett's demotion came this week after he turned in a mistake-filled performance against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the preseason opener.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - There are plenty of uncomfortable situations that come with sharing dorm suites at training camp, but splitting one with the primary player you're competing against can be first-date awkward. Kurt Coleman and Jaiquawn Jarrett share a four-man suite, along with cornerbacks Jorrick Cavlin and Trevard Lindley, but the Eagles vying for the starting free-safety position have rooms directly across from one another. In some circumstances, doors might be closed most of the time.

Kevin Kroboth's biggest task in replacing Jaiquawn Jarrett isn't finding a way to terrorize ballcarriers. Or try to develop into an NFL draft pick. Or even become an all-Mid-American Conference selection. It's continuing to do what he does best and not try too hard to impersonate Temple's former four-year starting free safety. "They are definitely huge shoes to fill because Jaiquawn was a great player," Kroboth said of replacing the Eagles' second-round pick in April's NFL draft.

Penn State's game at Michigan on Oct. 24 will begin at 3:30 and be telecast by ABC or ESPN. Penn State (5-1, 1-1 Big Ten) plays Minnesota on Saturday. The Nittany Lions defeated Michigan, 46-17, last season in Beaver Stadium. The Wolverines (4-2, 1-2) host Delaware State on Saturday. Temple junior defensive back Jaiquawn Jarrett was named Mid-American Conference defensive player of the week for the East Division. Jarrett had nine tackles, two interceptions and a fumble recovery in the Owls' 24-19 win over Ball State.

JAIQUAWN JARRETT   Second round, 54th overall Position: Safety College: Temple Size: 6-foot-0, 196 pounds Hometown: Brooklyn, N.Y. The skinny: A starter for nearly all four years of his college career, including every game in each of the last three seasons, Jarrett was considered one of the top safeties in a weak overall class. Instinctive and hard-hitting, Jarrett is not very big or fast for a safety and was not expected to be drafted until the middle rounds.

THE PICK After watching some of yesterday's NFL action, I'm starting to think that maybe Cam Newton throws five touchdown passes to Jason Avant tonight, runs for another 200 yards and the Panthers roll to victory. But I guess ridiculous results elsewhere (Really, Steelers? You were my best bet this week. Thanks a bunch.) won't really have anything to do with what happens on the field tonight, and I just don't see the Panthers winning without a ton of Mark Sanchez turnovers. Carolina came into the weekend with the league's 26th-ranked run defense.

For four games, Temple's defense was a positive for the Owls. Not Saturday. Toledo compiled 305 yards of offense while doing whatever it wanted in a 36-13 Mid-American Conference victory at Lincoln Financial Field. "I'm not pointing fingers at the offense or special teams," Temple defensive end Adrian Robinson said. "I'm pointing it at the defense. "We didn't do what we needed to do. We needed to stop them. We didn't stop them. That's just plain and simple. " The Owls (3-2, 1-1 MAC)

"Dominate the state" became Penn State football's new catchphrase in January almost immediately after coach James Franklin ended his first news conference. The three words were printed on T-shirts and hats. Franklin said his plan was to command Pennsylvania's recruiting scene. And it proved to be more than coach-speak - the Nittany Lions' 2015 recruiting class is ranked fourth in the nation by Rivals.com. Temple's second-year coach, Matt Rhule, said the phrase belittles Pennsylvania's other colleges.

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.

INDIANAPOLIS - Figuring out whom the Eagles may target in free agency, especially at safety, requires ingenuity, projection, and mostly guesswork, since every team at the NFL combine has made a concerted effort to keep its plans under wraps. But with as many as four of their safeties unlikely to return for 2014, the Eagles are expected to address a position that has plagued them - and so many other teams around the NFL. And knowing where they went wrong over the last five years could help narrow the field.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - In 11 days, the game will count. In the meantime, the Eagles needed to play the final preseason game - one reserved for the reserves, and one in which the only benefit is more tickets sold and more information about backup players. One backup is Nick Foles, the second-year player who entered the summer in a quarterback competition and could not beat out Michael Vick. Foles struggled in the Eagles' 27-20 loss to the New York Jets to drop the Eagles to 2-2 in the preseason, although his offensive linemen and pass catchers did little to help.

The Eagles added four defensive backs in free agency, but none that can be considered slam dunk starters. So there was a feeling entering the draft that Chip Kelly and Howie Roseman were going to address the secondary fairly early in the process. In the end, though, the Eagles waited until the third day before they added North Carolina State safety Earl Wolff in the fifth round and Oregon State cornerback Jordan Poyer in the seventh. While Kelly said they selected prospects with grades higher than where they were drafted, not many fifth- or seventh-round players project as starters.

In 2004, the Eagles started Brian Dawkins and Michael Lewis at safety. Both reached the Pro Bowl. Both were also second-round picks - Dawkins in 1996, Lewis in 2002. Those picks were the highest the Eagles allocated on a safety since Jesse Campbell in 1991, and the Eagles' evaluations proved to be correct. Replacing them has been an ongoing issue. Other than Quintin Mikell, who was a four-year starter and one-time Pro Bowler, the position has been a revolving door in Philadelphia.

The stars have aligned. The Eagles need starting safeties - again. More than a handful of proven starters are waiting to be snatched up in free agency. And the Eagles have more than enough salary-cap space to sign one of the top talents. Does that mean the Eagles will chase Dashon Goldson, William Moore, or Glover Quin? Not necessarily. They do have a number of holes to fill. General manager Howie Roseman and coach Chip Kelly recently reiterated their belief that splurging in free agency is not the way to build a championship-caliber squad.

INDIANAPOLIS - No part of the Eagles roster is expected to undergo as much of an overhaul this offseason as the secondary, with uncertainty reigning at the cornerback and safety positions. There will be opportunity for the Eagles to address those needs in the draft, particularly in the middle rounds. This is an abnormally strong class of safeties - one that Chicago Bears general manager Phil Emery said includes five or six potential starters, and one that has more quality than NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock can ever remember.

INDIANAPOLIS - Statistics don't always tell the whole story, but they tell more than enough of it as far as the play of the 2012 Eagles' secondary is concerned. The Birds gave up 33 touchdown passes, which not only was the most in the league, but also the most in franchise history. Their eight interceptions were the third fewest in the league. Their 99.6 opponent passer rating was the second-worst in the NFL and their 104.7 third-down opponent passer rating was the bottom of the barrel.
