Maybe the Eagles shouldn't have drafted all of those Georgia Bulldogs.

Okay, don't act like you haven't already thought about this. We know Jalen Carter is going to be a stud. He's the real deal. We were worried about Kelee Ringo until he was forced into action, but we don't know how the Jordan Davis, Nakobe Dean, and Nolan Smith selections will turn out.

Cross your fingers. Hope for the best we guess. Okay, we're kidding about that last part. Here's where we are in all seriousness. This group is going to be fine.

We're worried about Smith's shoulder, but there were mock drafts that had the Birds taking him as a top-ten choice. There were a lot of draft pundits and scouts that would have been satisfied with that selection.

Now, that was primarily because he is so freakish athletically, but remember, he was also compared to Haason Reddick. That's very high priase. Expect big things is year two.

Jordan Davis improved from year one to year two. Nakobe Dean, despite being indestructible in Athens, dealt with injury in his sophomore Eagles season. The organization still believes in him, and so do we. He's gotten off to a slow start, but with proper coaching, he will be fine.
