My draft grades



#4 Lane Johnson-A+

The point of a top pick is to acquire franchise or all-pro talent. Dude has that, the ability to get up to the second level blocking with his athleticism. In one on one matchups, dude literally seals off whatever side he's on. He has that Jason Peters level potential, upside.

#35 Zach Ertz-B+

This grade would've been slightly lower if not for his first round grade and Kelly's explaination. We're gonna smash people baby. Dude's an excellent blocking TE, can catch the ball and play with that high edge.

#72 Bennie Logan-B

The only thing "bad" I can say about this pick, and a similar complaint about the next pick is going to be that there were better players on the board. Doesn't mean he's not good though, has to improve at rushing the QB but he's good at tackling and great against the run.

#98 Matt Barkley-B+

This originally would've been a C grade at best. But a combination of Barkley's upside, and the rest of the Eagles(relatively) excellent day 3 made this pick acceptable. I like him as a pocket passer, a competitor, a winner everywhere he's gone. Some have compared to Matt Schaub, others have compared(possibly) to Drew Brees. If he meets that upside, that'll be great.

#136 Earl Wolff-A

A position of need, feisty, makes plays out of the backfield. The reason I complained about Barkley was that we only had so few value picks remaining and because of that we wouldn't become as good of a football team as we could be.

That was still the case, as we didn't acquire a pick(heck, we lost one in the Barkley deal). But we hit on the picks that we did have.

#212 Joe Kruger-A

Another depth type of move, but a very talented kid who can do what we need and is a fourth or fifth

round grade.

#218 Jordan Poyer-A+

2nd round talent, 7th round pick. Not only a great position of need but just because of who he is. Athletic, like Wolff he can make plays all over the football field. He adds that same kind of feisty play as Cary Williams. Oh and Kurt Coleman will strictly be a bench player

#239 David King-C+

I didn't like the pick earlier, until I read up on him a bit. He's an Eagles fan, he has an athletic build,

he's young. He's a project.

Overall:B+ An excellent draft class, hitting the second half of the draft with steals was something we needed.
