The Eagles seemed to get exactly who they wanted with their first two picks. Bulking up both lines with impact caliber players. Many local draft experts had the Eagles taking Winston Justice with the 14th pick so getting him at 39 makes the Eagles front office look brilliant. Other experts had Bunkley going as early as 8th overall so it seems that they got good value at 14. I was a little surprised they went DE with their third round selection, but knowing Andy I shouldn’t be. I’m not one to make too big a deal out of the draft until you see the players in action.
I was, like everyone, shocked that the Texans passed on Reggie Bush. I’m also not that disappointed with any of the Eagles picks as many of the fans feel the Eagles needed a WR. There wasn’t one receiver who jumped out at me.
1 14(14) Brodrick Bunkley DT FLORIDA STATE Bunkley
has good size and the powerful upper-body strength needed to hold his
own against the run. More importantly, he has the quickness and motor
to excel in Philadelphia’s scheme, making him a candidate to push for
playing time as a rookie.
2 7(39) Winston Justice OT USC This
is one of the better picks thus far. After getting an impact player in
DT Brodrick Bunkley in the first round, the Eagles addressed one of
their greatest needs by selecting Justice, a first-round talent who
slid to the second round because of character issues.
3 7(71) Chris Gocong DE CAL POLY
Fox Sports thought the Eagles had one of the best second rounds of any team.
