Derek Barnett: DE, Tennessee, 6-foot-3, 259 pounds
The Eagles passed on riskier options to take a safe, productive pass rusher who broke Reggie White's college sack record and is only 20 years old.
Sidney Jones: CB, Washington, 6-0, 186
The risk came in here, when the Eagles took Jones,
a potential No. 1 cornerback who would have been a first-round pick before tearing his Achilles tendon in March.
Rasul Douglas: CB, West Virginia, 6-2, 209
Douglas gives the Eagles a tall, long cornerback who led the nation last season with eight interceptions and will compete for early playing time.
Mack Hollins: WR, North Carolina, 6-4, 221
Hollins offers an intriguing size-speed combination to develop and will be an immediate contributor on special teams.
Donnel Pumphrey: RB, San Diego State, 5-8, 176
Pumphrey won't impress anyone with his size, but no running back rushed for more yards in Division I-A history and he can now learn under Darren Sproles.
Shelton Gibson: WR, West Virginia, 5-11, 191
The Eagles lacked a deep threat last season, and Gibson has the speed to stretch the field.
Nate Gerry: LB, Nebraska, 6-2, 218
A college safety whom the Eagles will convert to linebacker, Gerry offers coverage ability if he can make the transition and could contribute on special teams.
Elijah Qualls: DT, Washington, 6-1, 313
Qualls is stout and athletic and could earn a spot as a rotational defensive tackle.
