Eagles send Brizer on secret scouting trip to Hawaii…


And you thought our GateKeeper went to Hawaii for mere pleasure?

Think again. GK Brizer was all about football business this past week as he scoured the Hawaiian islands for prospects. He gathered metrics on draft-eligible players who spent their college careers in our 50th state.

Most of Brizer’s reports for the Eagles are classified as top-secret. And most of the prospects he graded will probably not turn up in your traditional 7-Round Draft. But real gold can be found in the undrafted free agent signings from the football-hungry pearl of the Pacific.

One player that Brizer can divulge data about is Kamalani Alo of the U. of Hawaii Warriors. Alo played an outside linebacker position, but at 6-2, 215, and a 4.5 time in the ’40, he will surely be converted to safety at the next level. It’s no secret that Alo is on a lot of NFL draft boards, so Brizer is giving nothing away here.

You might want to add some Hawaiian flavor to the back end of your Eagles Mach 10 Plus contest entry. It’s instructive to know that Hawaiian players currently active in the NFL include Alex Green (RB, Jets), Mat McBriar (punter, Steelers), Kealoha Pilares (WR, Panthers), and Greg Salas (WR, Jets), to name a few…

Here are the prospects that Brizer studied last weekend at the Hawaii Warriors Pro Day:

That is all Brizer can tell you right now about these players. Spies everywhere. But you can bet two or three of these guys are on the Eagles’ radar.

You-Tube has video clips on most of the guys on Bri’s list if you’re inclined to research them individually… or you can take a condensed look at Hawaii’s team profile video highlights by searching “University of Hawaii Warriors”…

Brizer is bringing back souvenier lei’s for all of us. Hey everyone!…we’re all gonna get lei’d !!!
