Most believe that NFL general managers earn their paychecks by their level of success in the later rounds of the draft and uncovering those hidden gems that can push a team over the top. With the NFL’s scouting process now winding down, many names are being brought to the forefront that weren’t exactly on the tip of anyone’s tongues when the collegiate season started. This segment called Under the Radar will continue to explore just what scouts find attractive about certain prospects that may be available beyond the glamour rounds of the draft and why you’re team may be interested in landing one of these sleepers.

Last week, rumors surfaced that Donovan McNabb–longtime Eagles QB who has been surrounded by trade speculation and reports over the past week or so–was potentially going to be involved in a multi-player deal that would send him to the Raiders. Several days passed following the initial release of the supposed information without a serious follow-up, but it appears the McNabb-to-Oakland story is picking up again, and heavily. Various league sources have indicated that the Raiders and their owner Al Davis have not been scared off by McNabb’s high salary totals and reluctance to go to an organization without much recent success, and are truly emerging as the front runners in this offseason attempt by teams to acquire the veteran passer from Philadelphia (whose head coach Andy Reid openly admitted about a week ago that the front office is listening to trade offers).

A new series was formed nearly two months ago called The Future 40, and the next edition is here! The segment has and will continue to run every other day until late April as we provide you with in-depth scouting reports of some 2010 NFL Draft prospects, giving you information key to understanding some of the players’ strengths, weaknesses, projected round of selection, possibility of being picked by the Eagles, and much more! And because the Draft is an important event for the entire league, some of the top-ranked players not expected to go to Philadelphia will also be reported on. This time around, we took to a defensive perspective and looked at Brandon Spikes: More »

The rumors simply will not stop. Since head coach Andy Reid said early on Wednesday that the Eagles are now listening to trade offers from teams interested in their three quarterbacks, a seemingly endless flow of speculative reports and stories of gossip as to where the passers might end up if indeed dealt has spread across the NFL world. There have been interesting suggestions and rumored deals in the works, such as the Rams supposedly offering their 33rd overall pick in the Draft as well as FS O.J. Atogwe for Donovan McNabb, as well as the Bills placing an offer on the table that includes a bunch of high selections in the Draft for McNabb (pictured) or young backup Kevin Kolb. The St. Louis deal was denied by the Rams’ general manager himself, while the report involving the Bills, as well as others, remain open possibilities. In the latest release of information regarding what has suddenly become a hot topic around the league again, Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk has claimed–via a tip from a source–that a multi-player trade with the Raiders is potentially in the works.

From Wirebot:

Madden NFL ‘11 is doing something special with its newest cover athlete; they are letting the fans choose who it will be. Tennessee Titans’ running back Chris Johnson is running his mouth claiming, “No one else to be there [on the cover] but me.” Why is he so bitter you ask? It’s probably because Madden didn’t even include him in the running! More »

Over the past few days, the Eagles’ QB situation–specifically surrounding starter Donovan McNabb–exploded with rumors and reports in regards to where any of the three passers could be dealt within the near future. Head coach Andy Reid sparked the constant flow of speculation when he confirmed the team is now listening to trade offers, but it seems many think McNabb–and quite possible backups Kevin Kolb and Michael Vick–will be staying with the Eagles for the 2010 season. Below is a compilation of various sources’ input on the entire ordeal, most of which strongly believe the hype is not to be believed and that McNabb (pictured) should and will remain with Philadelphia: More »
