Mychal Kendricks LB PHI 3 Months

Eagles ILB Mychal Kendricks said he plans to make film study his priority this offseason.

Kendricks has freakish sideline-to-sideline physical tools, and he put them on display during a breakout sophomore campaign. He posted 106 tackles, four sacks, three interceptions, six tackles for a loss and two forced fumbles. Once Kendricks wraps his head around the position, he's going to be an annual All-Pro candidate. "You can only get so fast and so strong, but you cannot stop developing your mind," he said. "It's a more powerful weapon than anything else."

Eagles ILB Mychal Kendricks (knee) is practicing Tuesday.

Eagles ILB Mychal Kendricks (knee) did not practice Wednesday or Thursday.

Kendricks' injury is not considered serious, but he's in doubt for Sundays' game against the Redskins. It would leave the Eagles without their most athletic linebacker in a game oddsmakers project to be the highest scoring in Week 11. LT Jason Peters (quad) also hasn't practiced this week.

Eagles DC Billy Davis said ILB Mychal Kendricks' "knack" for blitzing is "very exciting."

Kendricks looked like the best defender on the field Monday night, flying around for 10 tackles (six solo, one for a loss) and two quarterback hits. Now a blitzer from weak-side inside 'backer, he's going to shatter last year's mark of one sack. Kendricks, also a strong coverage linebacker, is an IDP sleeper turned gold.

Eagles ILB Mychal Kendricks is expected to rush the quarterback more this season.

Kendricks sometimes gets a "cover linebacker" tag because he ran a 4.47 at the Combine. But he's also capable of a pass rush, something he wasn't able to show as an outside linebacker in last year's Wide Nine scheme. Now that new DC Billy Davis is installing some variation of a 3-4 base, Kendricks is licking his chops. He's one of our favorite IDP sleepers.
