Sure the draft was some time ago, yet reviews of drafts are always nice. Here we go—a review of the Philly Eagle's Draft!

Pick No. 19:  Jeremy Maclin, WR, Missouri:

The Eagles finally have a large possession receiver! Along with DeSean Jackson, they have young, talented WRs. McNabb is very satisfied already! But that's not all...

Need Grade: A
Talent Grade: A
Overall Grade: A


Pick No. 53: LeSean McCoy, RB, Pittsburgh:


A first-round Pick until the combine (he caught the flu). To get him with this pick is amazing. Look for him to give Westbrook breaks and to take over soon when age cacthes up.


Need Grade: A-

Talent Grade:A

Overall Grade: A


Pick No. 153: Cornelius Ingram, TE, Florida:


A first-round talent that suffered a major injury as a college player. A major hit-or-miss player, but it is the fifth round, after all. Replacement for the departed L.J. Smith.


Need Grade:A

Talent Grade:A, INJURY RISK

Overall Grade: B+


Pick No. 157:  Victor Harris, CB/S, Virginia Tech:


Grand Larceny! Macho Harris was a 2nd Round Talent, however the Eagles got Hobbs from the Patroits. Could be future safety.


Need Grade:B

Talent Grade: A+

Overall Grade:A


Pick No. 159: Fenuki Tupou, OT, Oregon:


It's Andy Reid. He loves linemen almost as much as he likes food! Still, it's a fifth-rounder.


Need Grade: B-

Talent Grade:B-

Overall Grade: B-


Pick No. 194: Brandon Gibson, WR, Washington State:


A very good wideout. The problem is he plays for Washington State. Still you would think someone would have snacthed him...


Need Grade: A

Talent Grade: A

Overall Grade: A


Pick No. 213: Paul Fanaika, G, Arizona State:


Another lineman. Paul isn't that bad but it's another lineman.


Need Grade: C+

Talent Grade: B+

Overall Grade: B-


Pick No. 230: Moise Fokou, OLB, Maryland:


Linebacker compotition, seventh round. Enough said.


Need Grade: B-

Talent Grade: B-

Overall Grade: B-




The Eagles had a really good draft this year, with lots of steals, talented players, and such. Strange, however, that Reid didn't draft a DL this year.

Overall Grade:A
