The Philadelphia Eagles 2010 Draft Class: Are They the Next So-and-So?

While the off-season is busy for those adjusting to life in the NFL, it’s a bit slow for those of us who cover it. That means that sometimes, a little research is necessary to come up with good ideas…and I think this is one of them.

You know how every draft pick gets labeled as “the next Player X,” or gets unfairly compared to guys who were drafted in years past?

Well, I’m going to fall into that latter category with this year’s Eagles draft picks.

I’ve looked back over the last 10 years at every player picked in the 13 spots where Philadelphia drafted last month. There’s a few greats, a ton of washouts, and even a couple of current or former Birds in the list.

So if guys like Keenan Clayton, Mike Kafka, and Charles Scott turn out to be the next anybody or the best selection at their spot, these are some of the potential comparisons.

After all, you never know where you’ll find a value or a diamond in the rough—like, say, Tom Brady, who was picked at No. 199 in 2000, smack in between current National Football Post writer Matt Bowen and eventual CFL washout Sherrod Gideon.
