The second day of the scouting combine holds less intrigue for the Eagles, even if it's a day for some of the biggest names of the draft.
Today quarterbacks, running backs and wide receivers meet with the media -- so that means guys like Cam Newton, A.J. Green and former Heisman winner Mark Ingram -- but it's unlikely the Eagles will be looking to any of these positions early in the draft.
Yesterday featured a parade of former Eagles coaches -- Ron Rivera, Steve Spagnuolo, John Harbaugh -- along with Howie Roseman and the draft's top offensive linemen, who are likely to be (or at least should be) of interest to the Birds.
Away from the actual business of the combine is a gathering of just about every agent in the league for an NFLPA-mandated meeting -- which puts a lot of power over player movement in one big room -- and the NFL's announcement of new sideline concussion-testing procedures. Dr. Margot Putukian, chair of the Return-to-Play subcommittee of the NFL's Head, Neck and Spine Committee, presented the testing tool, which won't be mandated but could provide a guideline to teams for how to check for concussions. She stressed that testing for the injury is very complicated and can be difficult to diagnose. While the Eagles' concussion testing came under the spotlight when Stewart Bradley and Kevin Kolb returned to play week 1, Putukian said her subcommittee began looking into the testing tool last May. She said the specific Eagles incident was not what brought about the new guidelines.
