Revisiting 2011 draft-day trades

Philadelphia Eagles traded David Carter to the Arizona Cardinals for Reggie Wells. Our net gain is Reggie Brown for Reggie Wells ... or basically nil. In any case, since the Eagles make a ton of draft-day trades, it's interesting to revisit who the player-for-pick trades actually turned out to be.
