Top 10 Eagles NFL Draft Busts - #3 Bryan Smith

New, comments

The player at #3 on our top ten busts of the Andy Reid era is another example of the really bad job the Eagles have done taking linebackers in the first couple of rounds over the past decade.

Bryan Smith - 2008 - 3rd round 80th overall pick

Whether or not the Eagles meant to have the guys from McNeese State play defensive end or linebacker or both is hard to say since he never played a real game here... but coming out school he was the poster boy for the "undersized tweener" label. He lasted only one season with the Eagles and did not play in a single game.

The next year he was picked up by the Jaguars, played in a couple of games and recorded three tackles. He spent last season on injured reserve.
