NFC East Draft Grades

Dallas Cowboys

Picks:6

1st rd.(22) Felix Jones RB

1st rd.(25) Mike Jenkins CB

2ndrd.(61) Martellus Bennett TE

4thrd.(122) Tashard Choice RB

5thrd.(143) Orlando Scandrick CB

6th rd.(167) Erik Walden DE

Draft Grade: B+

Best Pick: Felix Jones

Sleeper: Orlando Scandrick

Comments: A good draft that filled needs at the running back and corner back positions. I would have liked to seen them draft a young WR at some point in this draft. Corner back Orlando Scandrick could surprise some people and contribute next year.

New York Giants

Picks:7

1st rd.(31) Kenny Phillips S

2nd rd.(63) Terrell Thomas CB

3rdrd.(95) Mario Manningham WR

4thrd.(123) Bryan Kehl OLB

5thrd.(165) Jonathan Goff ILB

6th rd.(198) Andre’ Woodson QB

6th rd.(199) Robert Henderson DE

Draft Grade: A-

Best Pick: Mario Mannigham

Sleeper: Jonathan Goff.

Comments: The Giants got the best value picks of any team in the draft. I am very impressed by the top three players they picked and with addition of Kenny Phillips and Terrell Thomas the Giants solidify their defensive back field. I also believe Mario Manningham well be an excellent fit in the Giants receiving corps.

Philadelphia Eagles

Picks:10

2ndrd.(47) Trevor Laws DT

2ndrd.(49) DeSean Jackson WR

3rd rd.(80) Bryan Smith DE

4thrd(109) Michael McGlynn OG

4thrd(117) Quintin Demps S

4thrd(131) Jack Ikegwuonu CB

6thrd.(184) Michael Gibson OG

6thrd.(200) Joe Mays ILB

6th rd.(203) Andrew Studebaker DE

7th rd.(230) King Dunlap OT

Draft Grade: B

Best Pick: DeSean Jackson

Sleeper Michael McGlynn

Comments: The Eagles filled a huge whole in their return game by drafting DeSean Jackson and his receiving skills will also be a plus. They also added a lot of depth on the defense side of the ball and the offensive line adding six defenders and three offensive lineman. On a light note the Eagles also drafter the player with the best name in the draft: King Dunlap.

Washington Redskins

Picks: 9

2ndrd.(34) Devin Thomas WR

2nd rd.(48) Fred Davis TE

2ndrd.(51) Malcolm Kelly WR

3rdrd.(96) Chad Rinehart OG

6th rd.(168) Durant Brooks PT

6th rd.(180) Kareem Moore S

7th rd.(242) Rob Jackson DE

7th rd.(249) Christopher Horton S

Draft Grade: A-

Best Pick: Devin Thomas

Sleeper: Justin Tryon

Comments: Jason Campbell and new coach Jim Zorn will be elated with the new weapons acquired in this draft. With two big physical receivers and a pass catching tight end added to Santana Moss, Clinton Portis and Chris Cooley the Washington Redskins a formidable offensive attack.
