Eagles Draft Nuggets

Here are some facts and figures from the Eagles' 2010 NFL Draft ...

• The 13 players drafted by the Eagles were the most ever by the team in the seven-round draft format (since 1994), and the most of any team in the 2010 Draft (New England was the closest with 12).

• In all, the Eagles selected nine players on the defensive side of the ball, including their first five draft choices.

• The only player selected with a pick that originally belonged to the Eagles was LB Keenan Clayton (round 4 - 121st overall). Altogether, the Eagles executed six draft-day trades this weekend, matching their total from 2008.

• Philadelphia has engineered 29 draft-day trades over the last eight years, including 16 in the last three.

• Since 1999, Andy Reid's first year as head coach, the Eagles have drafted 20 offensive linemen, 19 defensive linemen, 17 defensive backs, 14 wide receivers, 13 linebackers, 11 running backs, 6 tight ends and 5 quarterbacks.

• The only position group not drafted this weekend was the offensive line. It was the 3rd such occurence in the Andy Reid era that the Eagles did not draft any O-lineman. (2007 and 2001 were the others).
