Are the Philadelphia Eagles Arrogant?

After all, this is the second year in a row that they've traded down and out of the first round.

Or, were they smart today? After all, they got Carolina's second and fourth round selections this year and Carolina's first round pick next year. On the face of it, this sounds like a good deal.

Then again, with their first second-round pick this year, they drafted an undersized DT from the most disappointing team in college football last year (Notre Dame). Is Andy Reid a good drafter, or has it been a while (6 years) since he's had a good draft?

Time will tell. But still, it's hard to say given their draft-day activities of recent years whether the Birds are fully committed to doing the smart thing and winning.

How can an 8-8 team trade out of the first round?

The astute Ray Didinger said he'd be OK with the move, provided that other deals were pending, which proved not to be the case.

As far as I can tell, the Eagles drafted only one player -- WR/KR/PR Jackson from Cal -- who will get on the field and have an impact this year.
