The excitement over the Eagles first day draft picks yesterday had me almost drooling in anticipation for what they had in store for day two. Then, the anticipation quickly turned into frustration.
The frustration was over the fact that they kept trading down and eventually traded out of the first round. On top of that, they made a deal with the rival New York Giants that allowed them to select 6'6" wideout Ramses Barden(on a side note, the Giants had a very productive draft.
I think this draft kind of separated the Eagles and Giants from the Redskins and Cowboys).
The Eagles already gave up their fourth round pick in the Jason Peters trade, so I figured there was no way the Eagles would give up their third rounder. But, they did(twice) and ultimately ended up six(yes, SIX!) 5th round draft picks at one point.
Then, in the middle of the fourth round, the Eagles added a player. Only, the player wasn't a draft pick.
Overall, the birds added seven more players on day two who all have potential to be contributors on the roster when the regular season starts.
Let's take a look at the Eagles nine new members and grade them.
