Welcome to Day 2

Welcome to Day 2

Good morning, boys and girls, and welcome to Day 2 of the 2008 NFL draft.

While I know there probably was a lot of teeth-gnashing yesterday when the Eagles traded away their first-round pick, I'd have to give them a B+ for Day 1. Why?

Well, our biggest gripe about the Eagles' past drafts is they usually get little contribution from their rookie draft class. But just two rounds in, they've already got three players who figure to get a fair amount of playing time this season -- DeSean Jackson, who probably won't be much of a factor as a receiver as a rookie, but will be their primary punt returner; Trevor Laws, who will be part of their four-man DT rotation along with Brodrick Bunkley, Mike Patterson and Montae Reagor; and running back Lorenzo Booker, the poor man's Brian Westbrook they acquired for a fourth-round pick from Miami. I'm assuming the Eagles still have hopes for Tony Hunt as a short-yardage and goal line guy. So Booker's arrival could most impact Correll Buckhalter. If Booker can play, Buckhalter could be a summer roster casualty.

    Oh, before I forget, I'd like to give a shoutout to my good friends at nfceasthomers.blogspot.com, a great blog that I recommend you check out.
