Philadelphia Eagles: C-minus

The Eagles needed to help a defense ranked 29th overall, including 32nd against the pass. They did use five of seven picks on defenders, including the top choice. Though Smith had 14.5 sacks last season, the Eagles might have been one of the few teams that thought that highly of him. But second- and third-round picks were spent on receivers.<br>
