  • Always intriguing to see who teams pick up “after the fact.” We know from experience a number of these free agents will make NFL rosters and help their clubs accordingly. Looking at this list alongside those picked during the Draft itself, it does appear the Eagles may have gotten some help for 2012…and beyond.

    • Absolutely. With all of the “expertise” surrounding prospects and the draft, fascinating how really, none of us know anythign until things play out on the field.
