Eagles make out well with compensatory draft picks

Looks like the Birds did ok with compensatory picks this year.  This gives them a plethora of picks to work with and perhaps make some deals/moves.

Link: Philadelphia Eagles.

The rich get richer in terms of draft picks in the April 23-24 NFL draft. Word came down late Monday night (Philadelphia time) that the Eagles have been awarded four compensatory draft picks by the NFL for losing unrestricted free agents Marco Coleman, Bobbie Williams, Troy Vincent, Bobby Taylor, Duce Staley and Carlos Emmons last year. Added to the total of nine picks the Eagles carried prior to the compensatory selections, the team now has 13 picks overall.
