2012 NFL Draft: How Each of the Philadelphia Eagles' Picks Fit in Their Plans

The Philadelphia Eagles had arguably the best draft of the weekend. They got immediate impact players, and they got players with high ceilings whom they can develop into future starters. T

hey addressed every need by Round 4 and were able to take some risks on a couple players who could develop into Pro Bowl players down the road.

This might have been the best draft weekend for Andy Reid, now entering his 14th season as both Eagles head coach and as head of football operations. The Eagles got their inside pass-rusher, they got their slot corner, they got their return specialist and they added depth on the offensive line.

Vinny Curry, Fletcher Cox and Brandon Boykin are all outstanding fits in the Eagles' scheme. Mychal Kendricks will also have a good shot at seeing significant playing time from Day 1. Not every Eagles draft pick will fit in quite as well, but Reid will have a plan for exactly how each draft pick will fit into the team this season.
