In rounds 2-4, the picks the Giants made were the exact picks I wanted the Eagles to make. In the second round, the Eagles selected Zach Ertz, a player I'm not disappointed with, but not who I wanted. The Giants' second round pick was Jonathan Hankins, a player I've valued tremendously throughout the draft process, and someone who I wanted the Eagles to pick. I feel that he could've seriously upgraded the Eagles' D-Line. He has nice size and skill, but he is a perfect example of why the combine is meaningless. He played great during the season, but his lackluster combine results downgraded his stock from a top 5 pick on a December Walter Football Mock Draft to a 2nd round pick. In the 3rd round the Eagles selected Bennie Logan, a pick that is a little disappointing, but he could potentially be an asset to the Eagles. The Giants selected Demontre Moore, a player that I thought the Eagles should've definitely picked in the third round. He was believed to be a top 3 pick before the combine, but a terrible combine drove scouts away from the quality of his play, and they slotted him as a third rounder, but in actuality he is a player with first round talent. The Eagles' fourth round pick was Matt Barkley, a player that worries me with his mediocre senior year and shoulder injury, but gives me hope when I look back to his junior year tape, so we'll just have to wait and see what he does. The Giants selected Ryan Nassib, a player that I wanted the Eagles to take. He is a very good passer, who also has the ability to run the read-option. The Eagles may have made the right choice in the fourth round by taking Barkley over Nassib, who may have been overhyped by the fact that his college coach left to go coach the Bills, who were in need of a quarterback, and when even they passed up on him and took EJ Manuel, teams may have realized that he might not be as good as they thought. So I'm not disappointed with the fourth rounder.
The other rounds where the Giants didn't read my mind:
In the first round I like the Lane Johnson pick (He's a little bit of a project, but can turn into something special). He is the most unbelievable athlete I've ever seen as a Tackle, and he's got tremendous size and he is only missing experience. in the fifth round, I like the Earl Wolff pick over the Giant's Cooper Taylor pick, and I am pleased with the Eagles' seventh round picks especially Jordan Poyer, who is a First Team All-American, something I don't think I've ever seen in the seventh round. So far, I am pleased with how the first draft of the Kelly Era went, because when all is said and done, we didn't draft any firefighters this year.
