Stats Ht: 6-0   Wt: 172   40: -  
With the 49th overall pick in the draft, the Eagles selected wide receiver/ kick returner DeSean Jackson from Cal to address their need at those positions. Jackson is well known for his blazing speed and should have a chance to make an impact on the team right away, mainly as a returner. The Eagles managed to get Jackson at good value because many people expected him to be gone after the first round. - Andrew Pluta,
Philadelphia badly needed to get some speed at the receiver position and they were also looking for a return specialist. They may have filled both roles with the speedy Jackson.
