Pro Football Weekly's Sixth-Round Value Chart

Right now, the Eagles do not own a sixth-round pick. Why? The Eagles traded their own to Detroit in the 2010 NFL Draft to get an additional seventh-round draft choice that resulted in the selection of linebacker Jamar Chaney. Not a bad payoff by any means. The Eagles did acquire an extra sixth-round pick in a trade with Tampa Bay for wide receiver Reggie Brown, but that pick was sent to Arizona for guard Reggie Wells at the start of last season.

Still, with 10 draft picks and general manager Howie Roseman's aggressive nature it will not be a surprise to see the Eagles trade and eventually end up with at least one pick in the sixth round.

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.

Here is a look at the players they gave a sixth-round grade to.
