2011 NFL Draft: Philadelphia Eagles Top Value Picks

We're going to accentuate the positive here on BGN today by taking a look at what some national media types are saying the Eagles best value picks were.

Pete Prisco of CBS Sports said their best pick was Danny Watkins, "I like the pick of Danny Watkins in the first round. He is a nasty player who will fit in on their offensive line, which needs help."

He also named Casey Matthews a 3rd day gem saying, "Fourth-round pick Casey Matthews, Clay's little brother, will help at a position of need. Should be a good special-teams player, as well."

ESPN's Todd McShay called Jaiquawn Jarrett the Eagles best pick - "I believe Jarrett will be a good starter in the NFL, and with Quintin Mikell a free agent, Jarrett will ideally step in right away. He's not big, but he's tough, and Jarrett is one of the more underrated defensive backs in the 2011 class."

National Football Post draft writer Wes Bunting praised the pick of Brian Rolle in the 6th - "If Brian Rolle was three inches taller and ten pounds heavier, he likely would have gone within the top 50 picks. He’s tough, instinctive, finds the football and plays the game with a mean streak. However, Rolle lacks ideal size and will likely be more of a nickel backer in the Eagles 43 front, but he holds up very well in space vs. the pass game and should mature into a quality special teams guy as well."
