Given their lack of picks, I would say that this was a successful weekend for the Philadelphia Eagles.
Here's the full 2018 draft class and signed undrafted free agents...
Round 2 (49): Dallas Goedert, TE, South Dakota State
Round 4 (125): Avonte Maddox, CB, Pitt
Round 4 (130): Josh Sweat, D End, Florida State
Round 6 (206): Matt Pryor, G/T, TCU
Round 7 (233): Jordan Mailata, T?, Rugby
-Josh Adams, RB, Notre Dame
-Jeremy Reaves, S, South Alabama
-Chandon Sullivan, CB, Georgia State
-Joe Ostman, DE, Central Michigan
-Toby Weathersby, OT, LSU
-Stephen Roberts, S, Aubrun
-Bruce Hector, DT, South Florida
-Jordan Thomas, CB, Oklahoma
-Ryan Neal, S, Southern Illinois
-Jeremiah Briscoe, QB, Sam Houston State
-Brandon Silvers, QB, Troy
-Danny Ezechukew, LB, Purdue
-Ian Park, G, Slippery Rock
The 2018 draft will always be remembered for the selection of Dallas Goedert.
The Eagles were able to trade down and still land the best tight end in the draft. Goedert was a steal at 49! He could make an impact from day 1 and could eventually become Carson Wentz's favorite target.
Josh Sweat was also a steal at 130. With Brandon Graham, Michael Bennett, and Chris Long all in their 30’s, Sweat could be in line for significant playing time as early as 2019.
Overall, this is solid work for a team that only made 5 picks.
Josh Adams and Jeremy Reaves are the UDFA's to keep an eye on. I think both guys have a chance to make the 53 man roster.
This is a draft class that may pay off more in 2019 and beyond, but that's perfectly fine for the defending champs.
Don't forget the Eagles also received a 2019 second round pick from the Ravens, which will help make the 2019 draft much more eventful.
Final Grade: B
NFC East grades
New York Giants
I still think they will regret not taking a QB, but the Giants had a solid draft. Barkley, Will Hernandez and Lorenzo Carter should all make an impact in 2018. If healthy, they could be the Eagles biggest compettiton in the East.
Da'ron Payne should start from day 1 and fills a huge need. This class will depend on if Derrius Guice can turn into the guy at running back. Overall, they had a good (not great) weekend.
Leighton Vander Esch has injury concerns but I like him a lot.
Connor Williams was a nice pick in round 2, but did they really need another O-lineman?
Bo Scarbrough was a nice pick in round 7.
They also traded for Tavon Austin, but as a WVU grad, believe me, Tavon Austin isn't anything to be concerned about.
We'll see about wide receiver Michael Gallup, if he turns out to be a starter, then they could be in good shape.
Dallas was a brutal draft host, so that also effects their final grade.
Grade: C +
The rest of the league
Green Bay Packers
I love what they did. They drafted two first round corners Jaire Alexander and Josh Jackson, and still fleeced the Saints for a 2019 first round pick.
Their first two picks, Roquan Smith and James Daniels, will start from day 1. The Bears could be a sneaky playoff team for 2018.
Bradley Chubb at 5 and Courtland Sutton in round 2 was a tremendous start. LB, Josey Jewell and WR, DaeSean Hamilton were solid 4th round selections. They still need a QB, but Denver had a great weekend.
A franchise QB and a franchise tight end in round 1 set the tone. If Orlando Brown pans out at tackle, this class could be even better.
Their first two picks jump off the page. Buffalo is on the rise.
This was one of the worst draft's I have ever seen. Every pick was a reach. They have been drafting terribly for years!! This is exactly what I don't want the Eagles to turn into after a SB title.
New Orleans Saints
Marcus Davenport better turn out to be the next great pass rusher in the NFL and/or the missing link for a Super Bowl title. They don't have a 2019 first round pick.
I didn't like any player that they selected. #SKOL
Kansas City Chiefs
Two defensive tackles with their first two picks (didn't have a first round pick) is typical Andy Reid. I watched the entire draft and didn't even know that they made a pick.
Their draft could pan out, but it just wasn't for me.
Trade Carson Wentz, pass on Deshaun Watson and reach for Baker Mayfield?
I Liked Nick Chubb in round 2, but this could have been so much more.
If Mayfield and Ward turn out to he hall-of-famers, then I was wrong. Prove me wrong, Cleveland!
