The Draft so far is highly influenced by the Eagles (and the Rest of the NFCE)

I cant help but feel that way. The way the NFCE and especially the Eagles have dominant front lines on D and great running Game and running QBs in Jalen Hurts and Daniel Jones and are overall physical teams we just drafted counter parts.

Mazi Smith is the best run stopping DT in the Draft. A fridge. Hes a more athletic BJ Raji that was vital in the McCarty Packers Years. Run Defense and running QBs were killing this team in important games the last years. Basically every short run over the middle or QB sneak was a given 1st.

Schoonmaker looks a bit like Jason Witten 2.0 with a nastiness of Dan Campbell as a blocker. Huge catch radius. This will allow Jake Ferguson to be TE1/receiving TE and this pick allows us to run 12 personnel more effectively and PHYSICALLY as Schoonmaker can deal with the physicality in the trenches that Philly, the Giants and in someway the Commanders will possess. Yes he is likely a reach at that point given that hes also 25 when the season starts but hes also very mature and game ready.

Overshown is a multi tool weapon that flies around the field with a nasty mind. Hes a bit like Jayron Kearse without a true position but can tackle like hell, plays the ball and has high football IQ.
