Very few teams in the NFL in the last few years have been better at identifying underrated prospects and turning them into NFL starters very quickly. Last season, the Eagles had four starters on offense and defense that were drafted in the latter portion of the draft in the last two years.
Andy Reid has made a name for himself as somewhat of a draft guru. Reid and company have had solid drafts and utilized every single round of the draft. Lately, the Eagles have had more success in the last couple rounds of the draft than they have in the first two rounds.
This year, the Eagles have three picks in the first two rounds to try and capitalize some of the premiere talent in this year's draft class.
The Eagles aren't high on needs this year outside of middle linebacker, but they could use some more young talent to keep the Eagles the inconsistent playoff team they have been over the last decade under Reid.
