Pro Football Weekly's Third-Round Value Chart

With that in mind, there could be some maneuvering done by the teams to position themselves with added picks for the final day or to grab a player off the board before the day concludes.

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.

The Eagles have one third-round pick, their own, which is the 85th overall selection. The third round produced one of the Eagles' all-time greats in running back Brian Westbrook. And as you can tell by the chart below, there are a lot of skill position players who would be of good value in this round. Let's take a look at the players who could be selected on Friday night.
