Man, the Eagles are doing it right this year
sure are...just traded back up to get Avant.
They are making us look bad by comparison.
Wow, now they have a #2 WR and a bunch of #4 WRs!!!! How can we defend that?
Anyone who touts a 4th round receiver in one of the worst WR crops ever needs to have their head examined.
They're doing a great job drafting name players. The OG from Georgia has bust written all over him. He's a whale.
Yeah, as much as i hate to admit it the e-girls are hitting on everything.
What did they get for Thomas and Hicks? just curious.
no one is saying he is the second coming, but he is a solid pick.
I gotta give the Eagles credit for a great draft, I'am just happy they didn't get Javon Walker.
Justice and Guilles will both be solid starters in time. Do not be surprised to see them both start their rookie years. Why did Guilles slide to the 4th, was he considered too fat? Bunkley was a steal for them. That guy is an absolute monster.
Looks to me like they got another out of shape OL (Jean-Gilles) to line up with Andrews. Justice is pretty good, but not better than Runyan at RT, they will regress at that position. They should have got Demetrius Williams over Jason Avant. Instead, they draft another "blah" type receiver that will never amount to anything in Philthy.
Reid just can't draft receivers...period.
At least wait until the end of the season before you start saying they are making us look bad.
Andrews could start for us right now, imo.
Bunkley was a steal. Gilles was 340 and is apparently getting fatter.
Justice was a steal too.
Justice was good value.
Avant...LMAO...he sucks. He'll fit right in with the rest of their WR's.
Meh, I never had him pegged as a first round pick. I never understood the fascination by some. Solid pick at #39 for sure.
half their draft is so-so. why are they making us look bad?
I have to disagree.
So many times when NAME guys fall it is for very legit reasons.
Buckley was considered a DE by many scouts though he played DT at FSU.
Justice was inconsistent and had character concerns.
Gilles is up over 350 pounds!!
In the end I think it far more likely some no name guy from bfe state winds up a "steal" than these guys.
Ya know kinda how we 'stole' Derek Ross and Antonio Bryant
I think the Eags really screwed up by not landing Javon Walker.
Winston Justice is not going to start over Runyan and is a developmental RT. To me getting him in round 2 isn't a steal but about right.
Bunkley will play DT for the Eags but they gave away Hollis Thomas for next to nothing to create the opening. Bunkley may replace Corey Simon but what did Simon ever do to hurt the Boys? In their system they really needed a quicker pass rusher at the end and didn't land that. I think they would have been best served by trading down and selecting Manny Lawson than putting him at the speed end a la Derrick Burgess who they really miss.
I am sure my dislike of the Eagles factor sinto my thoughts and wouldn't prtend they don't but a lot of paper A drafts turn into Ds on the field.
Philthy has added WR Jeremy Bloom (5-9 173) to pair with Jason Avant.
Newman and Henry are in trouble now.
