Seems weird that the first 3 selections by Eagles were considered lesser prospects than there teammates.
Patterson--Cody
Brown--Gibson
McCoy--Morrison

wow, did we really draft the second best linebacker at san diego state?

i started out liking this draft, I just keep losing faith in it

i mean i guess reid was drafting to replace people, but I think we were complete enough to be able to just take the best player available (i know not a football example but iggy and the sixers)

well hopefully this benefits us in the long run, which i guess is what they were shooting for

considering all 3 of the "better" players were available when we selected their "lesser" counterparts, and considering Andy Reids record of talent evaluation, Id trust him on this one and assume he knows what he's doing because time and time again he has proved that he knows what he is doing.

you can't compare morrison with mccoy. mccoy plays olb, morrison plays ilb.
mccoy was the higher rated in most draft boards.

ronnie brwon was a backup too and went at #2 to miami

Patterson is better than Cody

Brown is better than Gibson


We didn't need a MLB.



I don't see the problem with how we drafted.

================

One common factor between the above comparison is:

1. Speed ..................... Patterson, Brown, McCoy are quicker & faster
