Sometimes, the best change of scenery can just be a few tweaks to your current surroundings. Nelson Agholor had a dismal rookie season. The first-round pick was the fourth wide receiver off the board in 2015. He finished his first season as a pro with 22 catches for 283 yards and one touchdown, the kind of output you expect from a borderline fourth or fifth wide receiver, not a man taken to be a starting wideout for the next eight years.
With the first NFL Draft of the Howie Roseman-Joe Douglas decision making officially complete just a handful of minutes earlier, Roseman stood at a podium in the Eagles’ NovaCare Complex and was asked to reflect on how the previous three days went. Were there things he would change, philosophically? Could this be the right setup for the Eagles’ front office, long term? “That’s pretty deep,” he said, glancing at Douglas to his right for a second.
Two days down, one to go. With the two most high-stakes days of the 2017 NFL Draft in the books, the Eagles have three new defensive players, each of whom had highly productive 2016 seasons. First-round pick Derek Barnett broke Reggie White’s sack record at Tennessee. Second-round pick Sidney Jones didn’t allow a touchdown in 2016. And third-round pick Rasul Douglas had eight interceptions last year.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
