Pro Football Weekly's Fourth-Round Value Chart

Thanks to some crafty maneuvering on the Eagles part, the team came away with four fourth-round picks - cornerback Trevard Lindley, linebacker Keenan Clayton, tight end Clay Harbor and quarterback Mike Kafka - and all of them have bright futures in Philadelphia. In addition, the fourth round has produced some of the other integral players on the current squad including guard Todd Herremans and wide receiver Jason Avant. Even though he wasn't a fourth-round pick of the Eagles, Asante Samuel is one of the league's elite cornerbacks after being selected in that round.

The Eagles currently have two fourth-round picks on Saturday. They own Washington's fourth-round selection (No. 104 overall) from the Donovan McNabb trade last April. The Eagles also have their own fourth-round pick (No. 120 overall). Who are some possible players the Eagles could target in the fourth round this year?

Pro Football Weekly evaluated the prospects in this year's draft class and assigned each player a round where he should be picked as well as what part of the round. This is not a mock draft. Different teams are going to have different grades based on their evaluation of the player and where that player fits into its scheme. And there may not be enough prospects worth filling out an entire round of the draft. Just because there are 32 picks in the first round, it doesn't mean that teams will have 32 players with a first-round grade.

Let's take a look at the players who could come off the board Saturday afternoon.
