Eagles finally draft two in the Second Round

After sliding backwards out of the first round and then again moving back in the second, the Eagles finally selected two players in the second round with picks 47 and 49. The Eagles first drafted Trevor Laws, a DT from Notre Dame who figures be another player they can eventually slot into their defensive line rotation. Laws appeared to be a bit of a reach at this point in the draft, so the Eagles must see something in him that will fit perfectly into their system.

With the second pick, the Eagles took DeSean Jackson, pictured above, an electric wide receiver from Cal. Jackson is small but incredibly fast, so expect him to be a return specialist as well as an option for Donovan McNabb. If he makes the return game an actual threat, this pick could turn out to be a steal.

Here is some more info on these two picks:
