    The eagles have gambled picks in the 4th or 5th round on guys like this in the past. There was a corner and a tight end. Both had high grades and were coming off injuries. Can't remember their names -- neither guy made any impact.
    Wisconsin CB Jack Ikegwuonu (4.131 in 200 and Florida TE Cornelius Ingram (5.153 in 2009).
    Good memory. Your encyclopedic knowledge never ceases to amaze.

    I thought I remembered the corner having a name similar to iguana and being from Wisconsin, but I wasn't entirely sure.

    I realize Ta'amu has been shut down by elite offensive lines this season. Why are the specific factors in your ratings of "stinks." I only watched 3 of his games this season. 2 he played very well in and commanded constant double teams. The other he disappeared in.

    Are you attending the Senior Bowl this year?

    He doesn't stink....I just wouldn't touch him until about round 5. He has no balance is completely on skates at times and plays like a man about 100 pounds lighter than he is. Way too inconsistent. I will not be at the game but I have been here the last 3 days.

    I'm not that smart...I'm no Ernie Adams. I remembered Ikegwuonu because I had him in my mock that year (6th or 7th round, though, not 4th)...thought his name was Jake rather than Jack, though. I had forgotten that Philly also drafted an injured TE a year later, but when you mentioned it, a Florida Gator came to mind, but I could not remember the name, so I looked it up on Google (then included where the Iggles drafted those guys, since I was already there).
