Analysis: Patterson is often the forgotten member of the USC defensive line, but his superior play and ability were high on the Eagles' draft board. Patterson adds depth to an already strong group of defensive tackles in Philadelphia. Extremely active and productive, he gives the Eagles a starting quality tackle waiting in the wings.
Selecting Brown in the second round provides the Eagles with another significant weapon on the offensive side of the ball. While the Philadelphia wide receivers have been moderately productive overall, Brown will provide an explosive presence to team with standout Terrell Owens.
Outside linebacker Matt McCoy may end up being an All-Pro quality linebacker at the professional level. Sporting very good speed, quickness, and strength, he is a perfect match for the Philadelphia defense. A great locker room presence and team player, McCoy plays the game in the "old school" manner. He will drop in coverage and pop anything which moves in front of him. Despite being somewhat undersized, McCoy is growing physically and has all the tools.
Moats is in the mode of Brian Westbrook, and is a serious threat coming out of the backfield. The Eagles like this type of back, as they fit into the versatile passing scheme and can run the football effectively in space. Moats is a great depth acquisition and insurance policy in the event Westbrook were to suffer injury.
