08:03 AM ET 04.15 | With a recent history of capable running back tandems, Philly may be looking to fill the position in the draft -- even if it's late. If the Eagles do decide to take a flyer on a late-round tailback, Maryland's Da'Rel Scott could be their guy. Scott is a likely fifth-round running back with electrifying speed and very good college numbers. But he's two years removed from his tremendous 1,100-yard sophomore season and has some injury questions. Scott rushed for over 2,400 yards and 17 touchdowns in four years with the Terps but battled injuries as a junior and was stuck in a back-by-committee last year. Scott ran a 4.34 at the Combine, which may boost him out of the late rounds, but if he's still around when the Eagles' two fifth-round picks roll around, he'd be worth considering. Scott is an accomplished receiver, which is mandatory in this offense.

It is the fifth round, maybe maybe not. It is worth a try.

I bet Andy is breathing a sign of relief that they didn't use that banquet picture from last week.

That tux was rather slimming. I thought it worked for him.
