Don’t really like some of the deals they made they pick up two 2012 3rd round picks which is nice but not really the Eagles way. They got Jimmy Smith who is decent value and goes to a team where get can flourish, but I don’t like him and I don’t think he is a do-it-all corner, doesn’t play very physical. Clint Boiling is a tweener for me. Now the next few picks I do not like. First off, KJ Wright OLB from Miss St which was over drafted good fit in the system but not sure how he will fit in the pass rush, DeAndre McDaniels massively over valued wont be a starter on the next level maybe a rotational guy. Derrick Locke over drafted maybe a round or two too high. I do like the Willie Smith pick in the 6th round could be a developmental left tackle. Not too flashy of a draft for me.

    Great job getting robbed by Carolina

    In exchange for moving back 11 spots, the Eagles got what is likely to be an early 3rd round pick in 2012 (the Panthers are not very good) for a late 4th rounder this year. Sounds to me like a win for Philly.

    There may not be a draft in 2012. And most likely these future draft picks that get traded won’t be remembered next year. It just seems pointless.

    2012 will have a draft. Let’s not be ridiculous.

    And, assuming there is one, you feel they should just totally forget about it and run this draft pretending there will never be another draft? I’m sure some teams did that, but it’s flawed and completely ruins the validity of the draft. That’s a silly comment.
