WHERE ARE THEY NOW
Where Are They Now? K Paul McFadden
What are the odds? There were 336 players selected during the 1984 NFL Draft. Just five were kickers, and the Eagles chose two of them. Manny Matsakis out of Capital (Ohio) in the eighth round and Youngstown State’s Paul McFadden in the 12th.
Where Are They Now? DB Herman Edwards
Nine years as an NFL analyst on ESPN didn’t suppress former Philadelphia Eagles defensive back Herm Edwards’ desire to become a head coach again. He was named the head coach at Arizona State University last December.
Where Are They Now? DT Mike Patterson
Mike Patterson was on a roll. Despite not playing football – or even having a real interest in the game – until his freshman year in high school, he developed into one of the nation’s best defensive tackles and helped USC win back-to-back National Championships in 2003 and 2004.
Where Are They Now? CB Al Nelson
On November 28, 1964, the Philadelphia Eagles selected Al Nelson in the third round of the 1965 NFL Draft. Later that afternoon, he was chosen by the Buffalo Bills in the ninth round of the AFL Draft. Nelson had his mind made up where he would go by dinner.
Where Are They Now? DT Ken Clarke
Twenty-two of the 334 players selected in the 1978 NFL Draft were defensive tackles. Two – Dennis Harrison and Greg Marshall – were chosen by Philadelphia. One who wasn’t drafted, Ken Clarke, signed as a free agent with the Eagles and arguably turned out to have the most successful gridiron career
