Pro Football Weekly's Second-Round Value Chart

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.

And if you compare the list of second-round prospects below to the list of seventh-round prospects, you can see how there are fewer and fewer names as each round progresses. Even though these players may not hear their names called tonight, it doesn't mean that will be second-tier players once they are in the NFL. Just look at the Eagles' second-round picks in recent years. Wide receiver DeSean Jackson and running back LeSean McCoy were players whom the Eagles had first-round grades on who happened to fall in the second round. Well, they are now two of the top-tier players at their respective positions.

The Eagles have one second-round pick on Friday, the No. 54 selection overall. Let's take a look at the players who could be selected early on Friday. With the amount of skill position players that appear to be rated here, could the Eagles add another offensive weapon?
