How about some NFL Draft grades? Here’s what every Eagles rival in the NFC East did wrong (and what they did right).

You have heard or read this 200 times or more by now. The NFC East hasn’t had a repeat champion in almost 20 years. The last team to do it? Andy Reid’s Philadelphia Eagles won four straight division titles during a stretch that began in 2001 and lasted until 2004. If the Birds are to accomplish their goal this season, getting back to the Super Bowl and winning it this time, the odds aren’t promising. Fortunately, they do have a few other things that are working in their favor.

They have the division’s best front office. They’re home to the game’s top executive, Howie Roseman. They have the division’s best quarterback, Jalen Hurts, and its best roster… on paper.

The most recent NFL Draft added seven new Birds to the nest. A trade added D’Andre Swift to a roster that already housed a talented backfield that featured Kenneth Gainwell, Boston Scott, and Rashaad Penny.

Each team was given the opportunity to improve its team during the most recent selection meeting. Have Philly’s rivals closed the gap? Let’s take a look at what each one of them did during April’s final weekend. Here’s a look at each team’s draft class as well as the best and worst moves that they made.
