Justice fell because of off-the-field problems, but the Eagles were willing to take a chance on him in the second round. To get Justice, the Eagles gave up the 45th pick in the draft and the second of their two fourth-round picks (number 116). The fourth-round pick actually came to the Eagles from the Dallas Cowboys.
"At the top of his game, he's a definite NFL starter," said Tony Pauline of TFY Draft Preview. "There were some character issues, but Justice is a good pick for the Eagles at number 39."
