The following 11 slides will offer an analysis of the 2008 draft for the Philadelphia Eagles, as well as an overall draft grade on the final slide.
For players who have spent time with the Eagles and another NFL team, I've included two grades—one grading them on their performance with the Eagles and the second grading their overall NFL performance.
In four seasons, Kolb has made just seven starts. He's earned NFC Player of the Week twice and became the first NFL quarterback to top 300 yards passing in his first two starts. But he played poorly in the season opener against Green Bay and ultimately lost his starting job for the whole 2010 season.
He's shown enough potential in limited playing time to be as coveted as top draft prospects, like Blaine Gabbert or Cam Newton. But everything depends on how much the Eagles receive for him when they trade him this offseason (if they can trade him).
Abiamiri has done virtually nothing in his four seasons with the Eagles. He has 20 tackles and four sacks in his career.
Abiamiri was named the starting left defensive end before 2009 but lost his starting job and spent a portion of the season injured. He missed all of 2010 with an injury.
It's time for the Victor Abiamiri era to end in Philadelphia.
Bradley has had a lot of ups and downs in his professional career. He was named to Sports Illustrated's All-Pro team following his 2008 season.
But he missed all of 2009 with an ACL tear and was subpar in 2010. There is talk of him losing his starting job to Jamar Chaney or being switched to outside linebacker for the 2011 season.
In two seasons, Hunt carried 14 times for 25 yards and two touchdowns, and caught six passes for 42 yards.
He failed to live up to expectations that he would be the short-yardage runner the Eagles always needed. He is currently with the Raiffeisen Vikings of the Arena Football League.
Gaddis was released before the start of the 2007 season.
He spent two seasons with the Atlanta Falcons but never made it above the practice squad.
Eagles Grade/NFL Grade: F
Celek won the starting job from LJ Smith by the end of the 2008 season. He caught two touchdowns in the NFC championship game loss against the Arizona Cardinals.
His best season was 2009, when he caught 76 passes for 971 yards and eight touchdowns. He drops way too many passes to be considered an elite tight end, however.
Ilaoa was cut by the Eagles before the 2007 season. He spent two seasons in the AFL with the Columbus Destroyers.
The drafting of Kevin Kolb didn't work out the way the Eagles planned, but they will probably receive a favorable draft pick when they trade for him.
Celek and Bradley have become solid starters over the last few seasons, although each suffered through a down year in 2010.
Abiamiri and Hunt were busts. Gaddis, Barksdale, and Ilaoa never played.
But any draft that gets two above average starters and a potential first round pick in an upcoming pick is a good draft.
