Philadelphia Eagles Final Draft Report Card

DeSean Jackson is a very talented little guy with position skills. My greatest concern is his ability to stay healthy. Demps like DJ a dangerous return man. LB May, DT Laws, DE Smith, OG's Gibson and McGlynn are prospects. Jack Ikegwuonu, and King Dunlap were in my opinion flat out bad selections

I thought the Eagles did a nice job in round one selecting a receiver who I believe will in the not too distant future develop into a "bell cow" number one receiver within the league. He's big, a confident catcher and is extremely dangerous runner in space. I don't think that the Missouri offense did a very good job of taking advantage of Maclin's very impressive attributes nor did they have the quarterback who could threaten the field vertically. He's going to need some route running polish, but this guy is the absolute real deal. I liked LeSean McCoy a great deal back in 2007 , but I just didn't see any qualities and or skills that separated him from the pack at the running back position this past season. In round number five the Eagles drafted a very talented football player in Cornelius Ingram. Ingram who had initially declared for the 08 player draft and rescinded, was injured during two a days and lost for the season. I number of clubs confided in me this spring that their medical staffs were not encouraged by his combine physical and subsequent spring re-check. Victor Harris has been a good solid performer for a number of years for the Hokies, but his speed for the cornerback position is suspect. He really impressed me in zone coverage. He showed good vision (pattern recognition) and anticipated well. I thought he tackled well, but wasn't explosive on contact. He is going to need to be schemed to cover up for his lack of speed, but in the right setting, this player could help somebody. Fenuki Tupou or Oregon and Paul Fanaika of Arizona State are two big tough individual, but neither are very athletic. I thought Gibson was a skilled receiver with size and good hands, but he lacks the speed to separate vertically.
