If you follow me on twitter you’ve seen me bombard your timelines with Deone Bucannon love and I’ve even wondered how high the Eagles would be willing to pick the All American safety. Instead of continuously inundating your timelines I figured I should put pen to paper (or is it fingers to blog?) and write something a little more comprehensive.
The Eagles have shown interest in Deone Bucannon at every turn of the draft process so far. The Eagles met with him at the senior bowl both privately and after practices [link]. The Eagles had a presence at his pro day, as you can see in this news package. The man you see working Deone Bucannon in the drills in that video is Eagles defensive backs coach John Lovett. And now, according to The Star Ledger the Eagles have a private workout scheduled with Bucannon [link]. When asked about his Senior Bowl meetings with the Eagles Bucannon had this to say of the Eagles interest, “[they told] me that I was doing a good job at the Senior Bowl and they had their eyes on me” [link].
