    First the good news from today’s state unemployment report: More Pennsylvanians are working than a year ago —61,000 more, in fact. That’s helped lower the unemployment rate to 6 percent. The bad news? Pennsylvanians are still dropping out of the labor force: 46,000 state residents who have given up looking for work. Not as quickly as their bretheren are being hired, but still enough that it signal some softness in the state economy: The U.S. economy actully added workers during the same time period.

    DeMeco Ryans is the catalyst of the Eagles defense. He played the most snaps on defense last year -- in the NFL -- so you can easily argue that Ryans is the defenses most important player. If the Eagles are looking in the first round of Mays draft to find Ryans successor, they could feasibly pounce at the opportunity to take C.J. Mosley, an inside linebacker who played at Alabama, the same school that produced Ryans. Daniel Jeremiah, a former Eagles scout who now serves as an analyst for the NFL Network, expects Mosley to be off the board when the Eagles pick at 22.
