PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Everybody has a guy.
Every year, as the NFL Draft nears, fans and analysts latch onto “their guy” for their team. Well, we’re exactly two weeks away from the NFL Draft in Philly and 94WIP’s Ike Reese already has his guy.
The former Eagles linebacker is hitching his wagon to Stanford running back Christian McCaffrey, who is flying up draft boards.
“I’ve got a feeling they’re going offense and if they’re going offense, running back is where they’re going,” Reese said on Wednesday’s 94WIP Carlin & Reese Show.
Listen: Ike Reese and Chris Carlin on Christian McCaffrey
Reese’s co-host Chris Carlin asked the ex-Eagles linebackers if he believes Christian McCaffrey is a special player.
“There’s no doubt in my mind,” Reese said on Tuesday. “There’s no doubt in my mind.”
What if McCaffrey is gone when the Eagles pick at 14 overall? Well, Reese would just take a different explosive running back, in Dalvin Cook.
The Eagles have eight overall picks in the NFL Draft, which begins on Thursday, April 27th.
