Early grades for rest of NFC East

Paul Domowitch offers up his early grades for the Eagles' competition in the NFC East.

Early grades for rest of NFC East

My early grades for the other three NFC East teams:

    Cowboys (B-plus) --After failing to trade up and get Darren McFadden, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones settled for the other Arkansas RB, Felix Jones, who will be a terrific compliment to bruising Marion Barber. They also added one of the draft's top corners, Mike Jenkins, in case the lure of Dallas's strip clubs is too much for Pacman Jones.

 

   Giants (B) --GM Jerry Reese attacked his team's defensive secondary needs by using the final pick in the first round to grab the draft's top safety, Kenny Phillips. Came back in round 2 and grabbed USC corner Terrell Thomas. Mario Manningham was great value in the third round. He slid because of a slow forty time and his score of 6 in the Wonderlic.

 

   Redskins (B-minus) -- Had 3 second-round picks and used them all on pass-catchers -- WRs Devin Thomas and Malcolm Kelly and TE Fred Davis, which is OK, except haven't they noticed they've got problems on the defensive line and in the secondary that need to be addressed?
