Sport Eagles caught in awkward war room moment following selection of Milton Williams in 2021 NFL Draft
Eagles' Nick Sirianni played rock-paper-scissors, trash-talked draft prospects to gauge competitiveness
That's one way to gauge players' competitive attitude.The Eagles coach revealed in a Wednesday Zoom meeting that he measures potential draft prospects' competitiveness by playing rock-paper-scissors. Oh, and trash-talking them while playing, too.
Smile — you're on candid camera.
Eagles general manager Howie Roseman was shown fist-bumping everyone like a 12-year-old hopped up on FunDip and Monster Energy drinks following the selection of defensive tackle Milton Williams in Round 3 of the 2021 NFL Draft on Friday.
Owner Jeffrey Lurie and head coach Nick Sirianni seemed pleased enough, but when Roseman got to senior Eagles scout Tom Donahoe, Donahoe didn't exactly reciprocate the good vibes on the dap.
Somebody (last guy) in thedraft room doesn’t seem to agree with Howie Roseman’s pick of Milton Williams at all. ????
Patriots NFL Draft rumors: New England 'doing a lot of homework' on Florida QB Kyle Trask
New England does not have a clear long-term option at quarterback as the 2021 NFL Draft approaches.NFL Network analyst Daniel Jeremiah said on the "Move the Sticks" podcast that there's "a little buzz" around the league that New England is "doing a lot of homework" on Florida quarterback Kyle Trask.— Eagles Nation (@PHLEaglesNation)
Eagles senior scout Tom Donahoe had an interesting interaction with Howie Roseman after drafting Milton Williams.— Sporting News (@sportingnews)
Donahoe seemed to let Roseman in on some unfortunate news, or a difference of opinion, causing Roseman to look incredulous.
The Eagles were on the move multiple times in Round 3, trading down twice and ultimately selecting Williams with the No. 73 overall pick.
Disagreements tend to happen on draft night, but Eagles brass has been the subject of several reports in recent months that painted a picture of dysfunction within the front office.
So, basically, this can be something, or it can be everything.
The Eagles followed up their Round 1 selection of game-breaking wideout DeVonta Smith with Day 2 picks of center Landon Dickerson in the second round and Williams in the third.
Ah, the NFL Draft.
