PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia Eagles got their future left tackle to protect Carson Wentz’s blindside.The Eagles traded up three spots to select Washington State left tackle Andre Dillard with the 22nd pick in the first round of the NFL draft Thursday night. Philadelphia sent Baltimore the 25th pick http://www.tampabaybuccaneersteamonline.com/matt-gay-jersey , a fourth-rounder (No. 127) and a sixth (No. 197) to move up.Dillard isn’t expected to be in the starting lineup this season unless the offensive line has injuries. He’ll learn from nine-time Pro Bowl left tackle Jason Peters, who enters his 15th season at 37 years old. Peters started every game last season after missing nine in 2017.“This wasn’t what we had anticipated. Our evaluation was this was the best tackle in the draft,” Eagles personnel boss Howie Roseman said. “Usually, those guys go in the top 10. That’s how we had it rated. When he started to fall, we saw an opportunity to get a top-10 player at an important position.”Dillard was the third offensive lineman selected after Boston College guard Chris Lindstrom went 14th to Atlanta and North Carolina State center Garrett Bradbury went 18th to Minnesota.The 6-foot-5, 315-pound Dillard started 39 games for the Cougars. He’s an athletic blocker who excelled at pass protection. Scouting reports say Dillard needs to work on his run blocking. He didn’t have to do much of it at Washington State, which predominantly threw the ball on offense.“He wants to be great and he takes to coaching well,” Roseman said.Eagles vice president of player personnel Joe Douglas said the team spent a lot of time with Dillard at the Senior Bowl and came away quite impressed.“His foot quickness, is lower body strength, his ability to redirect, those are very intriguing to us http://www.tennesseetitansteamonline.com/a.j.-brown-jersey ,” Douglas said.The Eagles were in position to select a player who doesn’t have to contribute right away after filling several needs in the offseason through free agency and trades.After winning the Super Bowl in 2017 with backup quarterback Nick Foles filling in for Wentz, the Eagles reached the second round last season. Foles again led the team down the stretch and into January after Wentz was injured.Dillard will join a unit that also features Pro Bowl right tackle Lane Johnson, Pro Bowl right guard Brandon Brooks and All-Pro center Jason Kelce.“He’s a special player,” Eagles coach Doug Pederson said of Dillard. “He has a great opportunity to come in and learn from one of the best left tackles in the game.”The Ravens took Oklahoma wide receiver Marquise Brown with Philadelphia’s pick. Brown was a player some thought the Eagles would select. Roseman, however, has always valued offensive and defensive lineman in the first round.The Eagles have two picks in the second round on Friday night, Nos. 53 and 57. They don’t have a third-round pick.Running back, linebacker and receiver are among the positions the Eagles could target but they also could go a defensive back. FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) — This is not the way Tevin Coleman hoped to pad his resume entering possible free agency.Coleman had an excellent opportunity to show he can be a lead running back when Atlanta Falcons starter Devonta Freeman was placed on injured reserve on Oct. 16. Coleman had been productive in a shared role with Freeman the last three years, but his chance to shine as the clear-cut starter hasn’t worked out as planned.The Falcons’ running game has flopped. Atlanta ranks last in the NFL in rushing entering Sunday’s game at the Green Bay Packers.The blame can’t rest only on Coleman and rookie backup Ito Smith. In recent weeks there has been no room to run behind a makeshift offensive line. It’s a big reason the Falcons (4-8) have lost four straight games .Instead of seizing the job and increasing his value on the free-agent market, Coleman has hit a wall. He has 14 carries for 14 yards in the last two games.Coleman said Wednesday he’s not concerned about the possible financial hit to his free-agent outlook.“I’m really not thinking about that right now http://www.tennesseetitansteamonline.com/amani-hooker-jersey ,” Coleman said. “I’m just thinking about playing my game.”Smith had more carries than Coleman in last week’s 26-16 loss to the Baltimore Ravens , though neither back was effective.Smith had seven carries for 22 yards. Coleman ran for only eight yards on a season-low six carries.“That wasn’t by design at all,” said coach Dan Quinn of Coleman’s reduced role.The Falcons ran only five plays in the third quarter against the Ravens’ top-ranked defense. Coleman had three carries on Atlanta’s opening possession and only three more the remainder of the game.Coleman lost yardage on three of his six carries.“It’s definitely been frustrating but we’ve just got to keep on working, keep coming out here and practicing hard and getting the right looks we need to get,” Coleman said.When the running game isn’t working, Matt Ryan’s play-action passing game also suffers. Ryan’s 131 yards passing against the Ravens set a career low for a full game.Clearly, it’s crucial for Coleman and the Falcons to revive their running attack.“It sets up everything,” guard Ben Garland said Wednesday. “We have to run the ball better so we’re allowed to run the ball more and have more play-pass. It sets up the rest of our offenseThe Falcons face difficult offseason decisions at running back.Freeman signed a five-year, $41.25 million extension before the 2017 season, making him one of the NFL’s highest paid running backs. He has played in only two games this season due to knee, foot and groin injuries. Freeman and Coleman each missed time with concussions in 2017.Coleman Taylor Rapp Jersey , in his fourth season, ran for 107 yards in a Week 2 win over Carolina . He has only one other game with at least 60 yards. Overall, he has 514 yards rushing with two touchdowns.Season-ending injuries to starting guards Andy Levitre and Brandon Fusco have hurt ground game, especially in the last few weeks.“Really over the last four games is where we felt like we hit a wall,” Quinn said.Quinn is trying every option on the patchwork line. Zane Beadles started over Garland at right guard against the Ravens. On Wednesday, Ty Sambrailo took snaps ahead of starting right tackle Ryan Schraeder. Quinn has not said if Beadles will make another start or he will make a change at right tackle.Breaking the season into four-game quarters, Quinn is looking at Sunday’s game as the start of the team’s fourth quarter and another chance to find the missing running game.“We’re going to keep digging hard,” he said. “You know how important it is to us and the team. We’re not backing off even though the results over the last third quarter have not been what we want. We’re starting fresh for us in this fourth quarter … going after it as hard as we can in every way.”
