The second major of the 2022 golf season is officially underway with the beauty of May surrounding Southern Hills in Tulsa, Oklahoma, as the PGA Championship returns to town for the first time since 2007. This year’s affair unfolds with a busy field, and the standings already look solid.

It’s so stacked that even a few unfortunate absences weren’t felt. Defending champion Phil Mickelson, who is watching the rest of the golf world move on without him from afar, is not among those present. Tiger Woods will set it up, although after his weekend performance at the Masters last month, any expectation of a 16th major championship in Tulsa is slim at best.

Instead, it was 2022 Masters champion Scottie Scheffler who opened as the favorite with Jordan Spieth entering as one of the best-case scenarios given he will be entering his sixth career Grand Slam attempt. Also of note is Rory McIlroy, who has recently upped his game as he seeks his first major championship of any kind since 2014.

So much so, in fact, that McIlroy shot a 5-under 65 to open play and hold a rare lead at the club after 18 holes in a major championship. Given that he normally starts slow and picks up the pace over the weekend, expectations are now high for McIlroy to pull off something he hasn’t done in the past seven seasons.

While attending the PGA Championship can be a lot of fun, just being able to watch golf on the game’s biggest stages is an incredible pleasure every year. We at CBS Sports are excited to bring you comprehensive coverage of the PGA Championship all week long with live action streaming all weekend.

CBS Sports golf anchor Jim Nantz will call for action for the 32nd consecutive year while hosting coverage of Round 18 alongside senior analyst Sir Nick Faldo. Ian Baker-Finch, Frank Nobilo, Trevor Immelman, Dottie Pepper, Mark Immelman, Colt Knost and Amanda Renner are also in Southern Hills for CBS Sports.

The 104th PGA Championship is the 32nd consecutive (and 39th overall) broadcast by CBS Sports, which this year will deploy approximately 140 cameras and nearly 150 microphones throughout the course to capture all the sights and sounds. Live drone coverage and robotic cargo cameras are among a dozen tech upgrades that will be used throughout the coverage.

Enough talk. Here’s how you can watch as many PGA Championships as possible throughout the week. Be sure to stick with CBS Sports for live coverage throughout, check out Round 2 tee times, and download the CBS Sports app to watch the PGA Championship live on your mobile device this weekend.

Johnny Depp has already testified, and Amber Heard returns to the witness stand Tuesday, May 17 in the former Pirates of the Caribbean the actor’s highly publicized $50 million libel lawsuit against his ex-wife. The proceedings are taking place at the Fairfax County Courthouse in Virginia.

Today’s proceedings are expected to begin with the resumption of Heard’s testimony. The trial now takes place Monday through Friday, starting at 9 a.m. ET. At the close of trial on May 5, Judge Penney S. Azcarate told Hollywood actors and their respective legal teams that she wanted closing arguments to take place on May 27.

Both sides present their cases to a seven-person jury, the judge, and a growing online audience. Heard had been on the stand for two days when the court interrupted a break from May 9-12. Cross-examination of Depp by Heard’s attorneys concluded on April 21.

Prior to Heard, the first defense witness was forensic psychologist Dr. Dawn Hughes. Hughes testified about allegations that Heard was the victim of domestic and sexual abuse at the hands of Depp. In contrast, Depp’s lawyers have tried to undermine his knowledge of the couple’s relationship.

Below is a link to the May 5 testimony from the Fairfax County Courthouse provided by Law & Crime Network for those who want to catch up.

In his first testimony, Depp said he was fighting back against Heard’s accusations, in part for the sake of his children. At the start of the defense argument, Heard’s team asked that the case be dismissed, as required by Virginia law. It was quickly denied, as expected.

Philadelphia City Council pushes for more cameras on the city’s 57 worst blocks for gunshots https://cummingthefragrance.com/philadelphia-city-council-pushes-for-more-cameras-on-the-citys-57-worst-blocks-for-gunshots/ Fri, 13 May 2022 19:41:15 +0000 https://cummingthefragrance.com/philadelphia-city-council-pushes-for-more-cameras-on-the-citys-57-worst-blocks-for-gunshots/ At a Friday hearing on the city’s gun violence, council members and police officials called for the addition of street cameras and a corps of civilian monitors to help traumatized residents living in the 57 blocks the city’s deadliest.

At a Friday hearing on the city’s gun violence, council members and police officials called for the addition of street cameras and a corps of civilian monitors to help traumatized residents living in the 57 blocks the city’s deadliest.

Councilman Curtis Jones Jr. said closed-circuit cameras are in high demand in his district. “I can’t put them in place fast enough in some areas,” Jones said. “Everyone wants one in their neighborhood.”

He and other officials said they relied on unpublished analysis by The Inquirer as part of its “Under Fire” series which identified 57 blocks where 10 or more people have been shot since 2015. Three-quarters City blocks haven’t had a shooting since 2015.

People living around these blocks are forced to make choices about their safety every day, Jones said. “It’s the area you probably won’t use to shop or stand at a bus stop because you knew it was a hot zone,” he said.

In 2020, as homicides rose dramatically, The Inquirer published the first article in the series, which revealed low conviction rates for shootings, and subsequent articles on the record number of arrests for possession of weapons. fire and the emotional and physical toll of victims and communities.

READ MORE: Philadelphia blocks beleaguered by shootings have long endured poverty, scourge and systemic racism

The survey that identified the 57 blocks focused on residents, who live in relentless fear for themselves and their families. (The Inquirer shared the data behind its analysis at the end of the story.)

Police giving evidence at the hearing said their investigations needed to rely on technology more than ever. A problem was recently solved by giving detectives of the newly formed Non-Lethal Shooting Unit as well as the Homicide Unit city-issued cell phones.

Police officials also said they want to add civilian workers to monitor Philadelphia’s extensive network of security cameras to spot and respond to violence more quickly and relay better information to officers near shootings. . This approach is inspired by Baltimore’s “virtual patrol” program.

Chief Inspector Frank Vanore said it’s vital to track violent incidents as they occur, as well as monitor social media for signals that an online feud could escalate. deadly.

In an interview on Friday, Jones said these technologies, while essential, must balance privacy with public safety.

District Attorney Larry Krasner has also taken the 57-block approach as a way to focus limited resources. “It will be an effort to heal, to process the trauma, to stop the hurt as best we can for the whole block, the whole region,” Krasner said in January, outlining a community-driven approach.

While cameras help police and prosecutors with real-time information and evidence, the shooting crisis is complex and solutions must also be broad, city officials say.

“You can’t just say crime happens because of one thing,” Jones said, “It happens because of many factors. We can tow cars. We can clean up and seal vacant buildings.

Of the 57 blocks, the poverty rate in the areas around them is nearly double the city average, and life expectancy is three years lower than the state average. Most blocks are blighted – vacant homes are three times the city’s average – partly due to long-term divestment.

Almost all 57 blocks share an injustice, which dates back 80 years. They are in areas with black populations that have been “marked,” deemed undesirable on racist property assessment maps that have been federally overseen and shared with lenders. Redlining has made it harder for many black and Latino residents to access loans and mortgages and build wealth.

The largest concentration of the 57 blocks is in a network of streets branching off from Kensington and Allegheny avenues, the notorious hub of Philadelphia’s drug trafficking market. Since 2015, nearly 300 people have been shot within a five-minute walk of this intersection, according to the news agency’s analysis.

The urgency for the city to stem the bloodshed remains high. Since The Inquirer’s story about the blocks published last September, a further 1,443 people have been victims of city shootings, including 318 homicides.

Philadelphia police set a record 562 homicides last year. The vast majority of these murders were committed by gunfire. The 171 homicides so far this year exceed all years except 2021, based on data dating back at least to 2007.

There’s nothing quite like the love that little creatures bring into our lives, but it’s not always easy to ensure that their environment is fully optimized for their needs. That’s where manufacturer Jamie Munro’s reptile camera project comes in. With the help of a Raspberry piehe is able to monitor his pet lizards in real time and track important factors that can impact their well-being.

This isn’t Munro’s first foray into the world of microelectronics. In fact, he has a website which doubles as a portfolio showcasing an extensive history of microelectronics and programming projects that back up the level of quality seen in this reptile camera project.

Valley News – Jim Kenyon: Grafton County sheriff’s deputies may flag new type of cop https://cummingthefragrance.com/valley-news-jim-kenyon-grafton-county-sheriffs-deputies-may-flag-new-type-of-cop/ Sun, 08 May 2022 12:37:35 +0000 https://cummingthefragrance.com/valley-news-jim-kenyon-grafton-county-sheriffs-deputies-may-flag-new-type-of-cop/ As the new deputy in the Grafton County Sheriff’s Department, Jill Myers was given a stun gun, pepper spray and a 9mm Glock.

As the new deputy in the Grafton County Sheriff’s Department, Jill Myers was given a stun gun, pepper spray and a 9mm Glock.

But when Myers makes an arrest — usually for failing to appear in court — or assists local police on a domestic disturbance call, she’s found something else in her arsenal that’s far more effective at defusing tense encounters.

“Your voice is your best tool,” Myers told me. “It’s all in your tone and choice of words.”

It’s music to my ears.

Law enforcement has enough wannabe cowboys and macho ex-military men with an us versus the world mentality.

I would like to think that Myers and Elizabeth Marshall, another recent recruit of Grafton County Sheriff Jeff Stiegler, represent a new generation of law enforcement officers.

To begin with, they obtained four-year university degrees. (A 2017 national study showed that only 30% of officers had four-year degrees.)

Why is this important?

A 2014 study from Michigan State University indicated that a “college degree significantly reduces the likelihood that officers will use force as a first option to achieve compliance.”

Myers, 27, and Marshall, 31, also belong to a segment of the law enforcement community that is embracing the use of body cameras to increase police accountability. And if the people encountered by the police know that their actions are being recorded, their behavior may also change for the better.

“Cameras can definitely defuse a situation,” Marshall said.

When Stiegler got his start in law enforcement in the 1980s, cruiser dash cameras — the ancestor of body cameras — were a novelty.

In some police departments, “they were almost taboo,” Stiegler said, recalling a police chief who told him cameras were a “double-edged sword” that could work for and against officers accused of misconduct.

In addition to having dash cams in their cruisers, Myers and Marshall wear body cameras. The department currently has only four, but all deputies will receive them later this year, Stiegler said.

In a department with nine full-time deputies, Myers and Marshall are the only two women, which is not unusual in American law enforcement. Women make up less than 13% of full-time police officers in the United States, according to a 2021 report by Stateline, an online publication of The Pew Charitable Trusts.

Myers has been a cop for six years in New Hampshire, where she grew up. She came to the Littleton Sheriff’s Department, where she started out as a patrol officer before being promoted to detective.

Married with three children, the youngest aged 3 months, Myers wanted to move to the sheriff’s department, where it’s “a little slower pace”. Full-time assistants tend to work Monday through Friday, with part-timers taking weekend shifts.

But no matter where you work, the police don’t change. she said. An officer’s conduct – in uniform and out of uniform – is always open to public scrutiny. “It’s life in a fishbowl,” said Myers, whose starting annual salary is around $62,000.

Stiegler, who was elected in 2018 after serving as police chief in Bradford, Vermont, called Myers a “seasoned cop” who is a “great mentor” to Marshall.

Having joined the department in December, Marshall is still a rookie. But she enters the profession with “eyes wide open”. His father, now retired, was a longtime soldier and New Hampshire State Police detective.

By the time she had completed 16 weeks of training at the New Hampshire Police Academy in Concord, Marshall was ranked in the academic top 10 of 67 graduates. (I didn’t hear that from her; Stiegler posted it on her Facebook page.)

Marshall opted for a career in law enforcement and a job with an annual starting salary of around $54,000, after working in the Superior Court Clerk’s office, one floor above the sheriff’s quarters. , in North Haverhill.

“People don’t really know what the sheriff’s department does,” Marshall said.

I would go even further. Because sheriff’s deputies don’t conduct drug investigations or oversee homicide investigations, I think a good portion of the public doesn’t see them as real cops.

But their role should not be underestimated. Deputies spend a lot of time tracking down people who are on the run for outstanding warrants. In civil cases, they get stuck with a lot of dirty work. Once a landlord has taken the legal steps to get an eviction, deputies have the unpleasant task of making sure the tenant moves out, whether they’re ready or not.

“Usually when people see us, they’re having a bad day,” Marshall said.

Much of a deputy’s job involves driving arrested people from a local police station to the county jail or their initial court appearance. Deputies also transport offenders incarcerated outside of Grafton County to and from the courthouse.

“You have to remember that everyone in the back seat is still a human being,” Marshall said. “It’s important to treat them with respect.”

Last year, when Stiegler had two assistant positions to fill, he started with a pool of 12 candidates. Six did not show up for the first day of fitness testing, which includes a 1.5-mile run, and two did not meet the state’s minimum fitness standards.

“Recruiting has become very difficult,” Stiegler said.

Hiring law enforcement officials also need to develop new strategies. “Gone are the days of bringing a State Police helicopter or an armored vehicle to job fairs,” Stiegler said. “The younger ones aren’t impressed.”

It’s encouraging. For police reform in this country to have a chance, a new generation of officers will need to holster their guns and raise their voices.

An alert from a passing driver helped prevent a fire that destroyed his motel from spreading to his other businesses, the grateful owner said Thursday.

Hong Cam, owner of LT’s Food and Fuel at the intersection of Highway 2 North and Highway 264, better known as the exit to Waskesiu in Prince Albert National Park, told CBC News that He was working at the gas station around 1 p.m. Wednesday when a driver came from the freeway and said the motel next door — which Cam also owns — was on fire.

“I was just surprised and said, ‘Oh, really?’ So I walked out with the customer and saw smoke coming up from the back,” Cam said.

Photos and video of the fire, uploaded by a passerby, show large plumes of black smoke and flickering flames near LT’s main building.

“If the customer on the freeway didn’t notice it, we don’t even know. The main section may have burned as well,” Cam said.

The main building, which is physically separate from the 12-room motel, includes the gas station, restaurant, and living quarters where Cam’s wife slept at the time.

They all phoned and called if we needed food…and expressed concern. So we really appreciate and are very grateful to all the people here.– Hong Cam, owner of LT’s Food and Fuel

Cam said she got out safely, along with her brother who was in the main kitchen. The motel, which was empty at the time, had served overnight travelers and short-term workers in the area.

In a statement Wednesday, the Lakeland Fire Department called the motel a “total loss,” adding that the tireless work of firefighters kept the flames from spreading.

Cam says he has no idea how the fire started. Authorities are investigating his cause. Claims adjusters were due to visit the site on Thursday.

Cam said he was grateful no one was hurt and much of his business survived. He was also moved by the outpouring of support from nearby residents.

“They all phone and call if we need food…and they’ve expressed concern. So we really appreciate and are very grateful to everyone here,” he said.

Cleanup is now underway at the site, which Cam hopes to have completed by the start of the summer season for Waskesiu.

LT is an important stop: Mayor of La Ronge

Aside from tourists, LT’s food and fuel is a major lifeline for people driving along the corridor to northern Saskatchewan.

There is currently only one other gas station, in the hamlet of Weyakwin, along approximately 200 kilometers of Highway 2 between the hamlet of Northside and the La Ronge area.

La Ronge Mayor Colin Ratushniak told CBC News on Thursday that he drove past LT just hours before the fire.

“LT is one of the staples along this highway…it would be pretty sad to see it go,” Ratushniak said.

The mayor noted that small gas stations in northern Saskatchewan often have limited hours, so LTs are an important place for people to access needed services.

Ratushniak also praised the work of the fire departments involved in controlling the blaze, adding that crews do not have direct access to fire hydrants in this area.

Alongside Lakeland, the Waskesiu Fire Department, Buckland Fire Rescue, Montreal Lake Fire Department, OSS Water Hauling and SPSA Weyakwin Fire Base were also involved in the response.

The company expects embedded vision to completely change the landscape of how cameras and sensors are used in devices. “Given the current visibility of orders from our customers, we expect to reach the $50 million revenue mark over the next two years,” he added.

e-Con was co-founded in 2003 by Ashok Babu, Harishankar and Maharajan Veerabahu, who returned to India after working on embedded platforms for a leading Japanese technology company and managing numerous projects to start their own business. In 2004, Maheshwari Dhayanandan joined them as director.

The company built over 250 models, which were converted into products for mass production. It has shipped over 2 million cameras to over 90 countries worldwide.

e-Con has focused on providing design services for a decade. In 2014, they decided to move into products and as a result, the revenue mix changed – products that were 10% of its revenue in 2013-14 moved to 90% in 2021-22.

Support business expansion

The company mainly provided vision and camera solutions to three sectors: retail, medical and industrial. “There are only a few companies in the field of embedded vision and we are now the leader. If you took any in-vehicle platform, we would have provided our cameras,” Babu said.

He said e-Con is an R&D and value proposition driven company. About 20 people work on finished products, 60-70 people focus on camera-related R&D, while we also have a 70-80 people engineering team focusing on customization.

PE money will be used to support business expansion in key markets such as the United States, European Union, Japan and Korea. About 95-98% of its revenue comes from exports. “We will set up a business development team of application engineers and marketing personnel in these markets,” Babu said.

Overall, the company will increase its workforce from 430 to 1,000 over the next two to three years. He plans to hire more engineers to support the expansion.

e-Con also sells products online. Through its online store, the company sells 20 to 30 cameras a day. These are delivered to people in multiple markets. It has also built warehouses in key markets. “We receive more than 2,000 foreign visitors to our online store every day. This is a growing segment and we will increase our focus on selling our products online,” he added.

How to use your digital camera as a webcam

Many people now work at least part of their schedule from home and have several online meetings each week. Webcams are great for virtual meetings, but many don’t offer the same video quality as a digital camera. Fortunately, using your digital camera as a webcam is surprisingly easy.

If you want to use your digital camera as a webcam, there are a few things you need to know before setting it up.

What to know before using your digital camera as a webcam

Why you would use a digital camera as a webcam

Digital cameras have top notch video quality; many are capable of recording in 1080p or 4K. And most have plenty of accessories that further increase their video capabilities. They are ideal for people who spend most of their day in virtual meetings and those who stream as a hobby or professionally. And they’re versatile: you can also take them on vacation and capture photos and videos.

Software can enable webcam functions on your digital camera

Not all digital cameras have webcam capabilities. Still, many brands have licensed software that allows your camera to be used as a webcam.

  • Most Canon EOS cameras are compatible with Canon’s webcam software, downloaded from the Canon website.
  • panasonic has connection software available on its site that enables digital camera capabilities for its DC-GH5, DC-G9, DC-GH5S, DC-S1, DC-S1R and DC-S1H digital cameras.
  • sony has the Imaging Edge Webcam software available on its website; this software is compatible with nearly 40 Sony digital cameras.
  • Fujifilm, Nikon and Olympus also have software downloads that enable webcam functions for some digital cameras.

Licensed software often has specific system requirements, so it’s essential to check the brand’s website to make sure it will work with your device.

If your camera does not have licensed software that enables webcam functions, there are many third-party applications that can help you. Nevertheless, it is essential to research the software before downloading it, as many third-party applications are loaded with bloatware, using excessive disk space and memory.

Hardware can enable webcam functions on your digital camera

If your camera has an HDMI-out port or a mini-HDMI-out port, you should be able to enable webcam functions using a device that converts the HDMI output to a USB output. Many cameras have clean HDMI features that keep your screen free of camera settings and overlays. If you’re not sure if your camera has its own HDMI overlay settings, read its manual or find it on the manufacturer’s website.

The Elgato Cam Link 4K is one of the most popular capture cards and is affordable compared to other capture cards. It works with most, but not all, digital cameras, so check its website to make sure it’s compatible with your camera before purchasing.

There are also plenty of other capture cards, some of them cheaper than the Elgato 4K. Read their reviews, however, to make sure others have had success with them before buying one.

Consider an external microphone

Although digital cameras offer superior video quality, their audio quality may not be ideal. Although they can be expensive, an XLR or USB microphone is a great way to improve your sound quality. In some cases, you can plug it directly into your camera, although it usually needs to be plugged into your computer. After connecting a mic to your computer, check your audio settings to make sure it recognizes the correct mic input.

If you don’t want to invest in an external mic, a quality pair of headphones with a microphone is a more affordable way to boost your sound quality. Plus, headphones with mics save space on your desk.

Load, weight and space

Make sure your digital camera is fully charged before using it as a webcam. Some can plug directly into your computer and charge while in use.

Digital cameras are heavier than webcams, so you’ll need a desktop camera stand that can support the weight of your camera. They also take up more space than a webcam, so you need to make sure you’ve cleared enough desk space for your camera.

Using your digital camera as a webcam FAQ

Can webcams be used as digital cameras?

A. Many webcams have photo capabilities, but the quality isn’t as good as a digital camera. Webcams also lack the portability offered by digital cameras.

Can you use lenses while using your digital camera as a webcam?

A. Yes, if you want to further improve the quality of your video, you can use compatible lenses that improve the quality of close-up video.

Which type of camera is better to use as a webcam, DSLR or mirrorless?

A. Mirrorless cameras are generally more compact and lighter than DSLR cameras, making them ideal for those with limited desktop space. On the other hand, DSLR cameras have a greater choice of lenses and accessories, making them ideal for those who want the highest quality video.

Eagles pick LB Kyron Johnson and TE Grant Calcaterra in Round 6 https://cummingthefragrance.com/eagles-pick-lb-kyron-johnson-and-te-grant-calcaterra-in-round-6/ Sat, 30 Apr 2022 21:22:30 +0000 https://cummingthefragrance.com/eagles-pick-lb-kyron-johnson-and-te-grant-calcaterra-in-round-6/ Eagles draft pick Jordan Davis over Jalen Hurts Eagles draft pick Jordan Davis plays on the Georgia defensive line and talks to QB Jalen Hurts.

PHILADELPHIA — If you thought the Eagles were going to change course all of a sudden for a cornerback or safety need, you weren’t paying attention.

After jumping position in the first three rounds, the Eagles maintained that position, taking Kansas linebacker Kyron Johnson with their first pick on Saturday, in the sixth round at No. 181 overall.

With their second pick in the sixth round, at No. 198, they took SMU tight end Grant Calcaterra.

The Eagles made two trades to get that pick at No. 181, trading Jacksonville out of the fifth round, at No. 154, for picks No. 188 and No. 198. Then they wrapped pick No. 188 with their seventh-round pick at No. 237 to move to No. 181.

The Eagles therefore finished the draft with five players after having had 10 to start. They took two linebackers, a defensive tackle, a tight end and a center.

Johnson joins Georgia’s Nakobe Dean, who went to the third round on Friday night. Johnson, who is 6-foot, 235 pounds, played defensive end at Kansas but looks undersized for that role in the NFL, despite running around 4.4 in the 40. Johnson shot 6.5 sacks and 4 forced fumbles last season.

“I’m ready to play wherever the coaches are ready to put me,” Johnson said on Saturday, adding that he compares himself to Eagles pass thrower Haason Reddick. “I’ve seen his style of play and how he goes from sideline to sideline, and other coaches have compared me to him as well. I can play anywhere, SAM, at the inside, outside, linebacker MIKE. I’ve played him all before.”

Calcaterra, meanwhile, was a promising tight end in Oklahoma before suffering a concussion in 2019 and retiring from football. That season, Jalen Hurts, now the Eagles quarterback, was the Sooners’ QB.

However, they only played three games together before Calcaterra was lost for the season due to his head injury.

“I’m so excited to start playing with Jalen again,” Calcaterra said. “He’s a great teammate, a good friend, and I have a lot of respect for him.”

In fact, Calcaterra said Hurts called him after he was picked.

Calcaterra had a long journey before they could team up with Hurts again. After retiring from football, Calcaterra started working as a paramedic, training to be a firefighter, while working in construction.

Throughout this time, Calcaterra said: “I kept one foot in the door” regarding football as he trained on the side to stay in shape.

Calcaterra said watching the 2020 NFL Draft convinced him to try again. He said he felt like he was as good as, if not better than, some of the tight ends that were drafted.

“I didn’t want to be 30, try one last shot,” Calcaterra said.

In his only season at SMU in 2021, Calcaterra had 38 catches for 465 yards. The Eagles are slim behind Dallas Goedert. They have Jack Stoll and Tyree Jackson, but Jackson is recovering from a torn ACL. The Eagles recently moved wide receiver JJ Arcega-Whiteside to the short end.

The Eagles missed the run on cornerbacks in the fourth round. But they couldn’t take that round again even if they wanted to. That’s because they traded six of their 10 first-round picks on Thursday night to get Georgia defensive tackle Jordan Davis and Tennessee Titans wide receiver AJ Brown.

They then took on Nebraska center Cam Jurgens in the second round and Dean in the third round.

So they waited until eight cornerbacks, including Cincinnati’s Coby Bryant, went to the fourth round.

The Eagles waited while they made their two trades.

Eagles general manager Howie Roseman said Friday night that he wasn’t worried about not addressing the defensive back.

“I think every team is going to have a hole in one place after this draft,” he said. “We have between now and September and hopefully we can add some guys…Unfortunately for us, we pick where we pick, and we’ve made a few trades, and we understand we’ll have some work to do after this draft.”

But the Eagles took risks with Jurgens and Dean.

Jurgens, despite getting Jason Kelce’s stamp of approval, is unlikely to play this season unless Kelce is injured. He’s played exclusively at center during his Nebraska career, so he doesn’t seem capable of replacing guard.

And Dean, who many expected to be drafted in the first round, apparently fell in the third round due to chest strain. The NFL Network reported that Dean had refused surgery, but Dean said Friday night that doctors weren’t recommending it.

Both Dean and Roseman said that Dean will be able to attend rookie minicamp next weekend. If he can play, then the Eagles have a first-round linebacker. If he ends up needing surgery, it could end his season before it even begins.

“I think I called our doctors three, four times,” Roseman said, asking, “Did I miss something? We had him come. Did I missed something?” Because obviously this guy is much higher on our board.”

As for Jurgens, it’s unclear how much longer Kelce will want to play. He considered retiring in each of the past four offseasons before returning. He has a one-year contract worth $14 million.

But Kelce, who is 34, is still at the top of his game. He has been selected to the Pro Bowl five times, including each of the past three seasons. If Kelce wants to come back in 2023, the Eagles are definitely not going to stop him.

Until then, Jurgens has the opportunity to learn with one of the best centers in the NFL. And Kelce is in love with Jurgens. He watched a video of Jurgens and told Bleacher Report that Jurgens was his favorite player in the draft.

Jurgens’ reaction?

“That’s great,” he said. “I’ve watched a lot of his tapes, and seeing a guy who can move like he (does) and play as hard and as intensely as he does, that’s how I want to play.

“Just because you’re an O lineman doesn’t mean you can’t run down the field and take out a safety. I want to do things like him and be able to fit into their system as well as possible.”

The Eagles also need other players to fit into their system.
