Brandon Graham ..
wow this is not good .. it could be worse .. but heres why
The eagles were in great shape to sit at 24 and get a corner like wilson or mccourty .. and than still have two third rounders .. but they traded up for graham .. NOW IT COULD BE WORSE .. EARL THOMAS .. who the fuck wanted earl thomas .. he blows .. he cant tackle .. he jumps routes .. and get beat constantly .. hes basically asante samuel .. we already have one of those .. and he needs to go .. thank god it wasnt him .. but Graham is highly over rated .. i had him ranked as the 5th best DE .. he has a high motor .. which covers up the fact that he has little talent .. is undersized and has small arms .. i
Now i do not think he is a bust .. he will not be horrible .. but he will also NEVER be a probowl end either ...hes solid but not special .. he is not a double digit sack guy .. everyone is high on tapp .. tapp is a situational guy .. Graham is an upgrade from tapp .. but heres the problem with this pick...
DEREK MORGAN!!!! the best DE was still on the board .. he is a poor man peppers .. hes athletic and a 10 plus sack guy .. wow .. and we passed on him for basically another undersized high motor guy .. we already have trent cole .. we dont need another one!! and we got trent cole in round 5!! fuck fuck .. if we got graham at 24 than fine .. decent value .. trading up and losing two thirds in the deepest draft in years is complete bs .. theres a DE still on the board named everson griffen ..he will be a better pro than brandon graham and we could of got him at pick 37 ... i would of rather had pierre paul .. yes he has a high bust potenital .. but he also has a higher ceiling .. and he goes to the giants who turned OSI into a good end .. paul has the tools to be dominat .. graham doesnt .. so i would take the upside anyday .. graham is a safer pick .. he will not be a bust .. paul maybe .. but paul can be a stud .. graham has no potential ..
This pick was horrible .. they need to salvage this .. trade back from 37 and get a third .. that will make this blow a lot less .. and if we can still get mays or allen than it will be ok .. but right now i dont think the eagles are that smart
