2010 Philadelphia Eagles Draft Recap

#13 First Round-Brandon Graham DE Michigan

At 6'1" 263 lbs this guy was definitely not the biggest DE available, but he is probably the best pure pass rusher that was on the board.

#37 Second Round-Nate Allen S USF

After passing on Earl Thomas in the first round, the Eagles did get the third best safety in the draft in taking Allen.

#86 Third Round-Daniel Te'o-Nesheim DE Washington

This was a bit of a stretch with such a high pick, but Reid is obviously committed to improving the pass rush next season.

#105 Fourth Round-Trevard Lindley CB Kentucky

This guy was a playmaker at Kentucky as he set the record for the most interceptions in school history.

#121 Fourth Round-Keenan Clayton LB Oklahoma

He is not projected as a starter, but could end up being a situational player and a great special teamer.

#122 Fourth Round-Mike Kafka QB Northwestern

This guy will be the new #3 QB and will hopefully have Kevin Kolb looking over his shoulder in four or five years.

#125 Fourth Round-Clay Harbor TE Missouri State

This could be one of the Eagles best late round picks as Harbor is a tremendous athlete who can contribute in a number of ways.

#135 Fifth Round-Ricky Sapp DE Clemson

At 6'4" 252 lbs, look for Sapp to move to OLB as he is much better suited for that position.

#159 Fifth Round-Riley Cooper WR Florida

This guy has got the size to be a solid third down possession receiver.

#200 Sixth Round-Charles Scott RB LSU

Taken as a solid special teams player and a possible short yardage runner as he never fumbled the ball in his entire college career.

#220 Seventh Round-Jamar Chaney LB Mississippi State

He has excellent speed and coverage skills, but is undersized against the run. Another situational player who should excel on special teams.

#243 Seventh Round-Jeff Owens DT Georgia

At 6'1" 305 lbs, he can fill some holes on the line if one of the starters goes down.

#244 Seventh Round-Kurt Coleman S Ohio State

As the Eagles "Mr Irrelevant" Coleman is a special teams guy all the way.
