We've finally reached our top three best draft picks of the Andy Reid era and judging by the comments, it seems that this is the one people have had some trouble guessing.  

Trent Cole - 2005 - 5th round

In some ways, it's easy to forget that Trent Cole was a 5th round pick because he played so quickly and started to contribute right away. Now after six years with the Eagles, he's amassed 57 sacks.

He was the 9th defensive end taken in the 2005 draft while guys like Erasmus James, Matt Roth & Dan Cody were first and second round picks. Two of those guys are out of football.
