Penn State has landed its 11th recruit for the class of 2012, offensive lineman Joey O'Connor from Windsor, Colo. O'Connor is a 6-4, 285-pounder who was drawing interest from nearly every Pac-10 program, plus South Carolina and Tennessee. "Just wanted to tell you that I've committed to Penn State," he told Lions247.com yesterday. "I made the call last night. I got together with my parents and talked about it for a bit and they said, 'We could see it in your eyes, that's where you want to go.' I'm really excited, real pumped to get out there and I can't wait.

MONTOUR HIGH offensive lineman Matt Barone decommitted from Connecticut on Monday night and is now on board with Temple. The 6-3, 285-pound Barone became the fourth player in the class of 2013 to orally commit to the Owls. The rising senior follows in the footsteps of Montour teammate Tyler Haddock. Haddock, a defensive tackle at the Western Pennsylvania school, gave an oral commitment to Temple last week after decommitting from Kent State. Haddock couldn't contain his excitement Tuesday morning.

The Eagles signed offensive lineman Nathan Menkin after he was released by the Texans on Friday, the team announced Saturday. Menkin (6-foot-4, 296 pounds) is listed as a tackle and a guard. Houston signed Menkin as an undrafted rookie free agent after he played college football at Mary Hardin-Baylor in Texas. He was an AFCA all-American tackle as a senior. To make room for Menkin on the 53-man roster, the Eagles released Trevard Lindley. The cornerback surprised many by making the squad, but it did not last for very long.

The Eagles will work out offensive lineman Jared Wheeler on Monday, according to a league source. He will sign if he passes his physical, according to agent Brett Tessler. Wheeler, 24, is 6-foot-5 and 319 pounds and played at the University of Miami. He was waived by the Seattle Seahawks after the draft in May. Wheeler spent last summer with the Carolina Panthers and Buffalo Bills. He was with the Bills during the preseason, but did not make the final roster cut. Wheeler started six games at Miami in 2013 - one at left guard, two at center, and three at right guard.

The Eagles drafted their first offensive lineman since 2013 on Friday when they selected Oregon State's Isaac Seumalo with the No. 79 overall pick. It came in the third round with the team's second pick of the draft, and it was used on a 6-foot-4, 303-pound lineman that coach Doug Pederson believes can vie for a starting job and is versatile enough to play every spot on the offensive line. "I think this kid can come in and compete and give us great depth at the spot," Pederson said.

THE LEAST popular thing the Eagles could do in the first round of the draft Thursday night would be to select an offensive lineman. But it also might be the smartest thing they could do. By the end of last season, the Eagles' offensive line was one of the top performing units on the team. Jason Peters was the best left tackle in the league. Todd Herremans had made a silky-smooth switch from left guard to right tackle. Rookie center Jason Kelce was playing like a seasoned veteran and drawing comparisons to five-time Pro Bowler Jeff Saturday.

IF THE EAGLES lost Michael Vick to injury in the offseason, the alarm would be deafening. The fringy residents of Eagle Nation would hyperventilate if LeSean McCoy tore a chest muscle lifting weights. If DeSean Jackson's right knee buckled at the beach, or if Trent Cole dislocated his shoulder falling out of a tree stand, or if those Pamplonan bulls outrun Jason Babin, the Bleeding Green might slit their wrists. There should be at least as much anxiety surrounding the absence of Jason Peters.

The Soul signed wide receiver J.J. Outlaw and offensive lineman Van Nelson and waived offensive lineman Harrison Nicolao on Friday. Outlaw was a standout at Villanova, playing wide receiver for the Wildcats from 2002 to 2005. He ended his career with 4,431 all-purpose yards. The Columbia, Md., native scored 18 touchdowns (14 receiving), including eight in his senior season. His father, John, played cornerback for the Eagles in the 1970s, and he tried out for the team in 2006 and 2007.

The sign was probably unnecessary at West Chester University's commencement yesterday, but photographers Chris Mitchell (left) and Dave O'Donnell were taking no chances. Among those who received degrees was Ralph Tamm, an offensive lineman with the NFL's Kansas City Chiefs.

SOMEDAY, we will be privy to the pictures Howie Roseman has of Miami Dolphins executive vice president of football operations Mike Tannenbaum that helped him facilitate one of the great NFL trade robberies of the salary-cap era. For now, it's enough to know that cornerback Byron Maxwell and his XXXL contract are somebody else's problem and the Eagles are picking five spots higher in the first round of next month's draft than they were three days...

INDIANAPOLIS - The Eagles scouted the offensive linemen at the combine the last two years. But when those drafts arrived, they avoided that pool of players. The Eagles were the only team to eschew the position in both the 2014 and 2015 drafts, and Lane Johnson was the lone offensive lineman selected in Chip Kelly's three years with the team. Expect that to change this spring, when the Eagles will add to their line with some of their nine draft choices. "We were leading the league in offensive linemen drafted from, I think, 2000 to 2013," executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman said last week.

Jason Peters watched the NFC divisional playoff game with his family in Texas. He was not happy to be watching it because he felt the Eagles were good enough to be playing in the game at Green Bay. The veteran offensive tackle was still not over the fact that his team had let a 9-3 start dissolve into a disastrous ending that included three straight losses to Seattle, Dallas, and Washington. "I felt like if we had made the playoffs we could have contended for the ring," Peters said last week after a long and hot Eagles workout.

After four months of speculation filling airwaves and dominating page views, the first round of the NFL draft has finally arrived. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers go on the clock Thursday at 8 p.m. They will have 10 minutes to make the top selection, which is expected to be Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston. Then the fun begins. The Tennessee Titans have the No. 2 pick, which is attractive to teams that want Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota. If you haven't heard, the Eagles are one of them.

The first draft pick Chip Kelly made as the Eagles head coach was an offensive lineman, Lane Johnson. He has not picked an offensive lineman since. The Eagles have three projected starters who will be 31 or older next season. The draft this week could be a good time for the Eagles to add at least one young lineman they could pencil in as a future starter. If the Eagles stay at No. 20 in the first round Thursday, they will be in the range for some of the draft's top offensive tackles.

LANE JOHNSON was the fourth overall selection in the 2013 draft, from Oklahoma. Todd Herremans' draft status was not quite that lofty - he was taken in the fourth round, in 2005, out of much less prominent Saginaw Valley State. But Johnson quickly attached himself to Herremans, his mentor in the ways of the NFL. Herremans, 32, is "someone I love like a brother - really helped me mature as a player on the field and as a man off the field," Johnson said in a text, after Herremans yesterday confirmed an ESPN report that he will soon be released, after 10 seasons with the Birds.

IT'S FOURTH-AND-1 from the goal line and Imhotep trails by five points with just seconds remaining in the fourth quarter. The PIAA Class AA championship is on the line. Aaron Ruff, a 6-5, 280-pounder, sticks his hand in the turf and steadies his nerves. He explodes off the snap, takes a handoff 5 yards deep and barrels into the end zone for the game-winner as the crowd goes wild. Offensive linemen can dream, too, right? "I'm always thinking about that," said the Panthers' right guard after practice Tuesday night.

Maryland offensive lineman Pete White, who was once considered one of the nation's top high-school recruits, has transferred to Temple for his final season of eligibility. The Maryland graduate is immediately eligible to play because he is enrolled in graduate courses not available at Maryland. White spent three seasons at Maryland and was a key cog for the Terrapins in his freshman and sophomore seasons. He was hampered by injury last season and left the team in February for "personal reasons.
