Philadelphia Eagles: C+

As expected, the Eagles took Wentz with the second overall pick. If he pays off, the Eagles have a franchise quarterback. If he doesn't, it's the type of pick that guts the roster because of what Philadelphia gave up to get him. Isaac Suemalo isn't a sexy choice in the third round, but don't be surprised if he becomes a dependable starter for years, whether it's at guard or center. Wendell Smallwood is an elusive back who will make defenders miss. He'll be a solid third-down player for the Eagles and may work on special teams. In the sixth round, the Eagles added an experienced dime corner in Blake Countess. The Eagles followed that up with a nice pick in Jalen Mills, an experience defensive back who can play safety and cornerback.

Carson Wentz

QB, North Dakota State

Despite being picked behind Cal's Jared Goff, some draft experts consider the 23-year-old Wentz to be the best quarterback prospect from this draft class. Wentz has great size at 6-5, 237 pounds. He's also very athletic. Mike Mayock has compared Wentz to former No. 1 overall pick Andrew Luck. Mayock has also explained why Eagles fans will love Wentz. Greg Cosell of NFL Films has said that Wentz is more talented than the top two quarterbacks selected in the 2015 NFL Draft: Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota.


Isaac Seumalo

C, Oregon State

Seumalo is now the first offensive lineman the Eagles have drafted since selecting Lane Johnson with the No. 4 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. The Eagles have neglected the offensive line in recent years under Chip Kelly so infusing the trenches with young talent was a necessity. It seems likely Seumalo will be given a shot to compete for the starting job at left guard. He will be battling against the likes of incumbent veteran Allen Barbre, Stefen Wisniewski, Malcolm Bunche, and Andrew Gardner. Seumalo can also serve as a backup at a number of other positions on the offensive line, including center, where Jason Kelce struggled last season.


Wendell Smallwood

RB, West Virginia

Smallwood measures in at 5-10, 208 pounds. He's a native of Wilmington, Delaware so it's no surprise he grew up as an Eagles fan. In three years at West Virginia, Smallwood rushed for 12 touchdowns and 2,462 yards on 425 carries (5.8 yards/attempt). Smallwood contributed as a pass catcher with 68 receptions for 618 yards (9.1 yards/reception). He also returned 30 punts for 541 yards in 2013.


Halapoulivaati Vaitai


Vaitai measures in at 6-6, 320 pounds. He started 30 games over the past three years for TCU. He played 13 games at right tackle in 2014 before moving over to left tackle in 2015. Mike Mayock identified Vaitai as an offensive lineman the Eagles should be interested in this year.


Blake Countess

CB, Auburn

The versatility Countess has displayed could allow him to compete at multiple positions in Philadelphia's secondary: safety, cornerback, and nickel. The Eagles were specifically looking to add a No. 3 safety in this draft so maybe safety is the most likely option for Countess. Not to mention that the Eagles already have nine cornerbacks.


Jalen Mills


Some are surprised Mills fell to the seventh round. He has talent but he also has some character concerns. Mills was arrested for second-degree battery of a woman in 2014. The chargers were reduced to a misdemeanor. Mills also has an injury history. He fractured his leg and tore ligaments in his ankle in mid-August 2015. The Eagles made it known they were looking for safety depth in this draft class and Mills fits the bill. He'll compete for a depth job behind sure-fire starters Malcolm Jenkins and Rodney McLeod.


Alex McCalister

DE, Florida

The Eagles already three players at defensive end who are being paid like starters: Brandon Graham, Vinny Curry, and Connor Barwin. McCalister will have to compete for a depth job. Perhaps he can contribute as a situational pass rusher in Jim Schwartz's wide-nine defense.


Joe Walker

LB, Oregon

A Ducks player, huh? Are we sure Howie Roseman isn't just trying to mess with Chip Kelly here? In any case, Walker measures in at 6-2, 236 pounds. He played 40 games for Oregon over three seasons. He racked up 205 total tackles (16 for loss), five sacks, one interception, and one pass defensed. Walker will compete for a depth job at linebacker. He'll likely need to stick out on special teams in order to make the final roster.
