Eagles Select Bryan Smith With The 80th Pick


Bryan Smith is an undersized defensive end from McNeese State who many feel will have to move to OLB in the NFL. The Eagles do love undersized defensive ends, and it will be interesting to see where they wind up playing him. To me he seems like another small speed defensive end, who can stand up and play the “joker” position if asked to.

I did not get a chance to watch any McNeese State games, so I can’t really form much of an opinion on Bryan Smith. I do know that at the combine scouts were very impressed with his speed. this seems like a future project type of player who probably will not see playing time in 2008.
