2014 NFL Draft: Eagles Pick At 26, Select Marcus Smith
I am not really sure what the Eagles are thinking here by drafting Smith in the first round. They could have had him in the second or third round. He isn't the most productive LB, and if he isn't making plays behind the line, he isn't making them. Almost half of his tackles last season were for loss, and his career high in tackles was 42 (2013). This pick was a head scratcher, because the Eagles needed help at ILB, not OLB, and Smith doesn't fit there. This is a confusing pick overall.
