But when asked which addition was most surprising, considering the Eagles did not think they would have a chance to add said player, Reid have a surprising answer.
"Probably the first one," said Reid of Mississippi State defensive tackle
As for his thoughts on some of the newest Eagles, here are Reid's thoughts on the five players added on Saturday.
On fourth-round pick, Georgia CB Brandon Boykin: "Brandon is really a dual-role position player in that he can play corner and he can play also the inside/nickel position. He's done those both at a high level of competition at the college level. Add to that he was a returner. He was one of the best dual returners in college football this year, so we welcome that skill onto our football team. I think sometimes that is a skill that gets neglected in this is the return part of it.
"He's going to get a chance to (be our kick returner). We're going to give him a chance to do that. (Special teams coordinator) Bobby (April) had him as his top combo guy, and he's seen a couple, right? He's seen a lot of guys come through."
On fifth-round pick, Purdue OT
On sixth-round pick, Iowa WR Marvin McNutt: "We have a little bit of an inside source at Iowa with (defensive coordinator) Juan Castillo's son playing one of the corners there. What you'll see with Marvin is he is a big, physical receiver with great hands, a good character kid, and is very strong with the ball. When you watch him, he is a very smooth athlete who is big. I think when he timed, it was like, ‘Whoa, he looked even faster there than he did in the game.' You talk about making some unbelievable catches, you see that with this kid. He's good with the yards after the catch and he's very productive there. He's a good person.
On sixth-round pick, Miami (FL) OG Brandon Washington: "Brandon probably fell a little bit further than we anticipated. Brandon had been a standout offensive guard the season before this one, and then they moved him out to left tackle. His production was okay at left tackle. As a guard, he really did a fine job. One thing is that the transition from guard to tackle is pretty tough. It wasn't because of being passive, it was because of being too aggressive at the tackle position where he overset the rush defensive ends and had a tendency to get beat inside a little bit there. At guard, he was really an unbelievable player and he played extremely well there. We're obviously going to keep him at guard, that makes sense. We'll start him back at the guard position and in an emergency we can move him back outside. He's a very, very good athlete and you'll see he's chipper on his feet, has very good length to his arms, and he's a good bender and has good hips.
"He was by far the top guy on the board. I mean, we had just picked an offensive lineman, it's not like the cupboards are bare there. But he was too good to pass up at that particular spot ... He's very athletic. You'll see, he gets out and runs."
On seventh-round pick, Kansas St. RB
On the state of the running back position: "We'll see how it goes. We're good with young guys and we'll see how that works out. With Dion (Lewis), I would have liked to have gotten him a little more time last year as we went on. I didn't end up doing that and I probably overplayed (LeSean) McCoy a little bit, even though he doesn't want to hear that. As he continues to get older and have the number of reps under his belt that he does, you'll want to back off the number of reps that he does."
