Pretty sure Catapano went off in the 5th or 6th

Bottom of the 4th actually. I've got a guy in mind that I'll take with our last pick. He's got a 4th-5th Round grade.

THE ELEMENT OF SURPRISE
by BabyatemyDidinger



Just hours before the draft Chip Kelly doubled over, the victim of a bad smoothie.
But this is the NFL and the draft waits for no man.
Welcome to the NFL, Mr. Kelly
In a surprise move Kelly deferred all of his decision making to his distant cousin, Pete Celly, and his team.

The group wasted no time in trading for 29-year-old, 326 lb defensive tackle/end, Red Bryant.
This move was about a surprising as the people Kelly chose to make his picks.
Bryant has long been an underachieving type and has missed nearly 40% of his teams games.
So, what did the Eagles give up to get him? Too much.
They swapped picks #35 and #210 for Bryant and pick #56.
That grades out Bryant as a high 3rd round pick and more than a round higher then where he was originally drafted.
Why? Why would the Eagles give up so much value for an almost-30, underachieving lineman with a history of injury issues?
They must have a plan I can't see. They better.
Grade: D

And the surprises kept on coming.
At this point I am not sure what was more surprising, that Luke Joeckel was still on the board with the Eagles pick at #4 or that they passed on him.
With the 4th pick the Eagles selected Oregon rush-LB, Dion Jordan.
It was a risky pick.
Certainly, Jordan was productive in college, but not what you'd call dominant.
It is not what one would expect from the 4th overall pick.
Grade: C-

In the second round the Eagles took another Oregon product, OT, Kyle Long.
At this point it started to appear that Kelly's crew thought they were going to import the entire Duck squad.
Long was taken about where most people expected he would.
But, the interesting thing about this pick is that it would have been made unnecessary had the Eagles taken Joeckel in the first.
Also, because they had traded down the Eagles missed out on the likes of Jonathan Hankins (NT), Justin Hunter (WR) and Jamie Collins (rush-LB).
Certainly one could argue that a combination of Hankins and Joeckel would do more for the Eagles in the long term.
Grade: B

Not surprisingly, the Eagles took CB, Blidi Wreh-Wilson, in the 3rd round.
With a patchwork secondary which is prone to injuries they needed a solid prospect who could be expected to contribute.
Wreh-Wilson appears to be that guy.
Also, he is from the University of Connecticut, not Oregon.
It looked like the initial shock of being in the NFL draft may have worn off at this point.
Grade: B+

And then came an end of an era.
Trent Cole was traded to the Detroit Lions along with pick #101 for pick #65.
That means essentially that the Eagles got decent value (mid-3rd round) value for Cole.
It was pretty clear that the Eagles wanted to make up the ground they lost earlier in the Bryant trade.
It was also clear that, as many had expected, Trent Cole no longer fits in this defense.
Let the rebuilding begin and thank you for your service Mr. Cole.

It was back to the familiar later in the 3rd round as the Eagles took Travis Kelce, a TE from Cincinnati and the brother of Eagles center, Jason Kelce.
Kelce was one of a number of tight ends in this class who could potentially help the Eagles.
He was the third TE taken and maybe the best of the bunch remaining.
Grade: B+

The Eagles either got a bit lucky or were very good in the 5th round.
They nabbed Nevada strong safety, Duke Williams.
He was clearly the best player available at that point and could fill an immediate need on this team.
In fact, he may very well be the starter by seasons end given the poor play and injury history at the position.
Grade: A

Having made the Williams selection enabled the Eagles to trade beleaguered safety, Kurt Coleman.
They managed to wrangle pick #215 for him.
All in all it was a decent swap for the birds as Coleman wore out his welcome last season after a promising rookie year.

With four picks in the 7th round the Eagles kicked it off with Notre Dame center, Braxton Cave.
While his name sounds like that of a superhero, he's not.
But, he is a quality center who performed well at the combine, most notably in the cone and shuttle drills.
He could challenge Jason Kelce for the starting spot at center, especially if Kelce is not fully recovered.
Not bad for a 7th round pick.
Grade: B

With the pick they received in exchange for Coleman the Eagles took DT, Chris Jones, from Bowling Green.
Jones is a small school stud who put up outstanding numbers.
A lot of guys with his type of resume don't pan out despite tremendous numbers because they played against inferior competition.
But, if there is hope it lies in the fact that Jones dominated that competition in college.
He still may not make an impact, but was certainly worth the pick.
Remember, the Eagles got him for Kurt Coleman.
Grade: B+

The trade of Dion Lewis to the Browns opened up a roster opportunity for a RB.
So, the Eagle took Knile Davis out of Arkansas.
It is going to be a chore for him to even make the roster at this point.
Maybe this Eagles staff was paying homage to last years staff with the selection.
But, how often do you get as lucky as the Eagles did last year with Bryce Brown's selection in the 7th.
Davis, similar in style to Brown, may not even beat out Chris Polk for a spot.
At this point in the draft you just don't know.
Grade: B-

Finally, after what seemed like 1 days the Eagles made their final pick.
Steve Williams, a CB from California, was the selection.
The diminutive corner (5'9") wasn't even the best CB on his team.
But, this is a deep draft at the corner spot and I expect a few of the lower picks there to make teams and contribute, even if only on special teams.
Also,you can never have enough CB's.
Grade: C+

In what may have been the biggest surprise of all, upon looking back the Eagles did not select a QB.
It was the move everyone expected for sure ... and it didn't happen.
With two QB's on the roster (Vick and Foles) who have very different styles, it was anticipated that the Eagles would have gone one way or the other.
Does this mean that the rebuilding process is going take another draft?
Or does Chip Kelly have yet another surprise in his bag?

Not gonna lie, but Dingo brought up a great point.

I'd rather have Lane Johnson/Fisher/Joeckel and Jamie Collins over Dion Jordan/Kyle Long 10/10 times of the day.

I think Collins is going to be a better pro than Dion, and same with any of the three top OTs with Long (though I'm not very big on Joeckel)

Pete originally drafted Joeckel at #4, which is highway robbery anywhere else on the planet but here.

So true. Surprised that everyone was so upset with it. Pete was forced by FFMD staff (Villain?) to switch the pick from Luke to Dion because everyone else in the war room was adamantly opposed to it.

He picked his staff.

But seriously, this is why I am inclined to go Joeckel/Fisher/Johnson in the 1st.
It fills a spot for a long time in all likelihood and then you just roll.
I'd be ion ecstasy if they got Joeckel at #4.
