The Eags had a good draft and solid off-season but losing :
OT Ian Allen; DE Derrick Burgess; C Alonzo Ephraim; RG Jermane Mayberry; WR Freddie Mitchell; LB Ike Reese; LB Nate Wayne.
is a fair amount.
Burgess was thei rbest playoff DE. Mayberry finnaly was performing well the past 2 years. Mitchell is a dufus but by far their 3rd best WR. Reese and Wayne were solid LBs with ST contributions.
But I still don't know what any team saw Thursday night that would have made them comfortable with waiting a round or two for the offensive lineman they wanted. ---Todd McShay
We just converted half our LB to DL. We have a 30m starting DL, it better be pretty friggin good.
