Grading the NFL Draft
Gets an A: B: C: D or F: Incomplete: Everybody else.
Heck, you can't even grade last year's Eagles draft yet. Could be an A. Defensive tackle Mike Patterson and receiver Reggie Brown started and looked good. Defensive end Trent Cole, offensive lineman Todd Herremans, and running back Ryan Moats showed flashes of promise. Safety Sean Considine might be a future starting safety. Or could still be a C or lower, if injury, competition or complacency relegates most of these guys to the sidelines.
Eagles are still hoping for production from once-promising '03 picks Jerome McDougal and Billy McMullen.
