Philadelphia Eagles have traded picks 1.23, 4.07 and 3rd (’12) for the Jacksonville Jaguars 1.18
Clevland Browns have traded 4.05 & 4th (’12) to Philidelphia Eagles for 3.21
Jaguars have traded Philadelphia’s 2012 3rd (Acquired earlier in the draft) for San Diego Chargers 4.24 & 7th (’12)
The Eagles also moved up to get their man, trading away two picks to nab Boston College offensive tackle Anthony Castonzo. Castonzo isn’t the type of mauler Philly usually drafts, but he’s a more consistent player and a better pass protector than current right tackle Winston Justice. If the Eagles are concerned about keeping Michael Vick upright, Castonzo would be a wise choice.
In the second round, the Iggles addressed their pressing need at corner by picking Texas product Curtis Brown. Brown is a tall corner with tremendous athleticism, but his poor strength and physicality at the line could lead to some issues early on in his career.
Somewhat curiously, the Eagles used their fourth round picks on Fresno State offensive guard Andrew Jackson and Virginia Tech pass rusher Steven Friday. Both are good prospects and nice fits for the team: Friday in particularly seems like an Eagles guy. However, they probably could have been had two, even three rounds later. The team could have gotten better value with other guys.
In the fifth round, Philly brought in Delaware quarterback Pat Devlin and Georgia Tech back Anthony Allen. Both are solid but not special picks: they could be serviceable reserves in the Eagles’ system but don’t offer a whole lot of upside. In that sense, they fit in with the rest of the Eagles’ mildly disappointing draft.
