    The amazing thing is that with all those picks a strong case can be made that the Eagles were simply taking the BPA. Jordan Davis was projected as a top 12 pick that was available in the 20s. Jalen Carter was rated as the best player in the draft that was available at #9. Dean was a Butkus award winner available in the 3rd round. Smith was a workout warrior available at the bottom of the 1st. And Ringo was a 1st round talent that slipped to the 4th "for reasons." In each and every case a person can say "who else should they have taken and why?"

    Eagles' Roseman capped it right with his Dawg fest...."I want to win." Dawgs win.

    Imagine if the Falcons had the gumption to do such a thing?

    Eating my second helping of crow. I predicted that SB IV would go in the 5th or 6th. The Rams just took him in the 4th. And yes, that is a huge difference. 4th rounders and above basically have guaranteed roster spots the first 2 years so long as they don't do anything to alienate the coaching staff and front office (or unless they absolutely positively cannot play). Guys taken after the 4th have to compete for roster spots against undrafted free agents, minimum salary veterans etc.

    You seem to put a negative spin on anything UGA.. They didn't do this, they failed at that, now taking shots at the selection of where the players were drafted. Bottom line..they were ALL drafted, regardless of what round. Sure, 1st rounders are guaranteed a healthy sum, it falls off as the player is drafted in later rounds, that's common sense. But, just because you're a high draft pick means nothing until you prove you're worthy of that contract. There have been many #1 HS recruits and 1st round nfl draft picks that have failed miserably. While a 5th or 6th round pick shines and has a very productive career. So, where you're drafted only matters monetary wise. If you only play 2 years as a 1st round pick, or 12 as a 5th rounder, who makes the most in the long run? The 1 who is willing to sacrafice, work hard, and dedicate themself to being the best, is the 1 who walks away the big winner.
