So says NFL.com:
Ah, who needs to lift a finger in the draft when you’re sippin’ wine and enjoying some brie? Or a greasy, dripping cheesesteak. Anyone seen the end of “Trading Places”? Well, not only should the Eagles be enjoying their status as the reigning champs, but they didn’t need to panic this past weekend. Thought it smart to trade out of the first round and pick up extra picks, because they didn’t have a second-rounder (well worth the loss, considering it was partially responsible for bringing Carson Wentz to Philadelphia) heading into the draft. General manager Howie Roseman used the second-rounder acquired in the Day 1 trade (No. 52 overall) to maneuver into the 49th overall spot (via a swap with the Colts), where he nabbed TE Dallas Goedert — whom Philly can team with Zach Ertz — one slot before that TE-needy team in Dallas could land him. Also value the pick of CB Avonte Maddox (Round 4, No. 125), who should help when it comes to replacing free-agent departure Patrick Robinson. Can’t wait until Philadelphia plays No. 2 below in Week 15.
Too high? No way. The Rams did nothing but make their football team better this offseason. They fortified the defense, a group that steadily improved last season, with the additions of veterans Aqib Talib, Marcus Peters and — since we last completed this exercise — Ndamukong Suh. Suh might not have dominated in Miami, but he was far from a bust. Putting him next to Aaron Donald was like parking a 1978 Trans Am with gold trim next to the blue-and-white ’69 GTO you’ve had sitting in your driveway earning Defensive Player of the Year honors. Trade acquisition Brandin Cooks doesn’t exactly “replace” Sammy Watkins at receiver. Different players. Doesn’t matter. This offense is gonna rake.
