Eagles: All Smiles Heading to Day 2

After getting offensive weapons Jeremy Maclin and LeSean McCoy in the first and second rounds on Saturday, the Eagles get to sleep on what they would like to target for their remaining seven picks.

They hold: one third-round pick (85), four fifth-round picks (141), (153), (157), (159), one sixth-round pick (194), and one seventh-round pick (230).

It is unlikely they will use them all. More likely at least one or two will be either packaged this year, or swapped for picks in upcoming drafts.

There are some interesting players still on the board, including several tight ends who might rate the third-round pick. All are better receivers than stud blockers -- thinking of Jared Cook from South Carolina, Shawn Nelson from Southern Mississippi and Cornelius Ingram from Florida -- but the Eagles could use some depth there.

Couple of defensive ends are hanging around as well, Michael Johnson of Georgia Tech and Lawrence Sidbury of Richmond, but no one who is a sure thing. That's why they're hanging around.
