Former Eagles weigh in on draft class

5/21/2014

In the recent NFL draft, the Philadelphia Eagles came away with seven players.

How did they do? Depends on whom you ask.

Comcast SportsNet's Derrick Gunn polled three former Eagles: ESPN analyst and former quarterback Ron Jaworski, Eagles radio analyst and former receiver Mike Quick, and former defensive back Herman Edwards.

The trio was interviewed by CSN at the 29th annual Ron Jaworski Golf Challenge last weekend.

Jaworski: "I think overall it was a very good draft. I think [Vanderbilt wide receiver] Jordan Matthews is going to be a tremendous, tremendous NFL player. I think [Louisville linebacker] Marcus Smith is going to be an outstanding player as well."

Quick: "It's totally different when you've played on one level and then you get to this level. Some of the best guys in college ball just weren't able to make that transition but from what I've seen and what I've read about the guys that were selected I think they had a really good draft."

Edwards: "We all sit here and try to give grades to drafts and basically the true grade happens three years from now. To say you actually know what a guy can be and become his first year ... we're kidding ourselves."
