    From AthlonSports.com:

    Philadelphia Eagles

    Grade: B –

    Andy Reid has drafted well during his time in Philly and this year continued the trend. After trading out of the first round, the Eagles capitalized on two fringe first-rounders — defensive tackle Trevor Laws and California receiver-return man DeSean Jackson.

    Laws has a non-stop motor and could find the field sooner than expected. Meanwhile, Jackson was considered to be one of the favorites for Philadelphia’s first-round choice, so it was a relative no-brainer to pull the trigger at No. 49 overall. Best case scenario, Jackson provides the Eagles with an elite punt returner, an occasional deep threat and an emerging talent at slot receiver.

    Later on, Philly added a pair of underrated players — UTEP safety Quintin Demps and Wisconsin corner Jack Ikegwuonu — to its thin, aging and disgruntled secondary. Linebacker and offensive line also saw the attention those positions deserved. Overall, a deep and quality class for a retooling Eagles team.

    If you really want to get well informed, I suggest you try buying a season preview magazine. AthlonSports is generally quite in depth and accurate, and they also do different covers for each team;

    Lindy's and CBS Sports also do season preview magazines, which are not to be confused with fantasy preview magazines, such as Lindy's fantasy football magazine or ESPN's one.
