Eagles Draft Needs
OT, OG, OLB, SS, CB
23. Philadelphia Eagles Select: Offensive Guard Danny Watkins
Give Michael Vick some help on the offensive line, nice move. Danny Watkins is ready to go right now as a fully developed man at age 26. The Eagles need to keep Vick up right and much like the Colts this is a top priority move for the Eagles.
Draft Grade: B
54. Safety Jaiquawn Jarrett
The Eagles go with a local boy in Jaiquawn Jarrett and he will help their secondary that was beatup down the stretch last season.
90. Cornerback Curtis Marsh
Another secondary addition for a team that struggled with health in this area last year. Marsh has decent speed and can hopefully contribute year one.
116. Linebackers Casey Matthews
Nice pick. I’m a Ducks fan so I got to watch this kid every weekend. The Matthews family knows how to play football.
120. Kicker Alex Henery
Could this mark the end for David Akers?
149. Running Back Dion Lewis
161. Offensive Lineman Julian Vandervelde
191. Offensive Lineman Jason Keice
193. Linebacker Brian Rolle
237. Linebacker Greg Lloyd
240. Running Back Stanley Havili
