Philadelphia Eagles original pick (233) – DE Casey Toohill (Stanford)

Toohill actually played a decent amount in Week 2 against the Rams, but the Eagles had enough of the Stanford product and waived him a few weeks after. He was picked up by the rival Washington Football Team just one day after he was waived.

At the time, it was tough to complain about the pick. It never hurts to add more depth to the defensive line and Toohill was an experienced rookie at 24 years old. Unfortunately for Toohill, he’s been buried in the depth chart behind talented defensive ends on both of his teams.

Philadelphia Eagles redraft pick (233) – RB James Robinson (Illinois State)

Hindsight is always twenty-twenty, right? Nobody expected James Robinson to play as well as he has, but he has been the best rookie running back in the NFL by far. His 762 rushing yards rank him third in the NFL in that category and he’s added 249 receiving yards and seven total touchdowns on the year. In a dismal year for the Jaguars, Robinson has been a beacon of hope for the future.

The Eagles don’t need running back, but it never hurts to add more talent. And with all of the injuries to Miles Sanders this year, Robinson could have contributed to the rushing attack.

It’s interesting how James Robinson is one of the best rookies in the league but wasn’t even drafted. It just goes to show just how much hidden talent there is in the NFL.
