EquinoxIn Jeremy Bloom, the Eagles have not only picked a speedy wide receiver, kick return man and former Olympic freestyler. They drafted some much blogged-about beefcake.

A search for Bloom's name on Technorati yields several shirtless, sweaty pics of the 5th-round pick - this one is from Equinox health clubs and bold-faced mentions on sites of all persuasions.

There's the story of how he cold-shouldered Paris Hilton at a party. Cosmo Girl's Star blog called him serious Olympic eye candy. There are more sober accounts from sports law blogs how he challenged NCAA rules to raise money for his Olympic ski training.

We should mention that in two years at the University of Colorado, Bloom grabbed 24 passes for an average of 19.1 yards per catch, returned 47 punts at 13.5 yards per return and 25 kickoffs at 25.1 yards per return. He had five touchdowns of 75 yards or more, according to the AP.

Sportsnetwork.com: Known for his blazing speed, Bloom is a tremendous athlete who is as explosive as he is elusive...Works extremely hard...Has been out of football the last two years and is a bit on the small side...Dedication to football is a question, but could be a special teams ace if given the chance.

Sports Illustrated's Don Banks writes that Bloom "stuck his landing" in Philly: He'll instantly upgrade Philadelphia's up-in-the-air return game, and there are few teams where Bloom would have a better shot at eventually seeing some playing time as a No. 3 receiver.

The Eagles site has a video interview with him posted. Mentions his MTV VJ contract.

Dude's got a slick Web site. Posters. Photos. Current news. Equipment. Connectivity.

T.O.'s got nothing on him.

Jeremy Bloom is the son of Larry Bloom a graduate of Lower Merion H.S. 1964. His dad was not only a super sports jock and a great guy, but has passed the fabulous BLOOM genes onto his son.

This young man deserves everything he has won because it has been based on merit and hard work....BEST OF LUCK......

PHILLY LUVS YOU JEREMY........

The NFL Draft was held over the weekend, and the Eagles actually bucked tradition and seemingly did a really good job drafting. They sat at No. 14 in the first round, and drafted a big defensive tackle (Brodrick Bunkley) --...
