If you wanted a top tight end from the first round of the draft for the Eagles, or a running back, you were disappointed.
But if you were standing in the long time waiting for an elite receiver to pair with DeSean Jackson, the selection of Jeremy Maclin of Missouri with the 19th pick of the first round is a good one.
Combined with Jackson, Maclin will give the Eagles amazing versatility and another top return threat. Several draft boards and rankings listed Maclin as high as the 5th or 6th best prospect in the draft.
The Eagles obviously agreed with that assessment, tossing a sixth round pick to Cleveland in order to move up two spots and grab him.
