Default Lito Sheppard

A league source said that the Eagles have asked at least one team for a first-round draft choice in exchange for Sheppard. I personally think we need someone like Sheppard he is a pretty solid CB. Your views.

He, like just about everyone else on that team, is an injury waiting to happen. They have some real good players but can't stay healthy. Trading a first round pick away, especially this year when we need o-line help would be suicide. And besides, saying we could afford him, and Ben could survive the 50+ sacks, who is to say that Lito would stay healthy. Lito is great. Tons of ability, but he can't stay healthy to save his life. The last year he played a 16 game season was 2002, though i think in 04 it was just him being rested. In summary "no thank you."

I personally hope we keep an eye on Flowers. He has dropped on a lot of boards and I think could be a solid addition if he's available 2nd round or later.

No thank you. The Steelers haven't been built as a perenial contender by giving up first-round picks. We need depth at CB, no doubt, but I certain don't think that was a glaring hole requiring the loss of a first-rounder.

Here is where I am a hypocrite. I am not a fan of splitting hairs on 40 times, but Flowers is a solid 4.5 40 guy right?? I like how Flowers plays, but his speed makes him an ideal "cover 2" corner. Unless the Steelers transition to a cover 2 scheme I really dont like him as a pick.

Personally with Ronde Barber and Brian Kelly in Tampa getting older and moving on....I see Flowers getting the call there.

When healthy, he is good. Trouble is...he can't stay on the field. That is why the bEagles are shopping him.
