Eagles Sign Bryan Smith; Laws and Jackson Remain Unsigned

The Eagles signed their third-round draft pick Bryan Smith today. Smith, a 6-foot-2, 245-pound defensive end, starred at Division I-AA McNeese State, recording 31 sacks and 187 tackles in 31 games.

Smith is an undersized defensive end for the NFL. Smith's quickness and size will remind Eagles' fans of Trent Cole. We can only hope his progression is the same!

The drafting and signing of Smith should slam the door shut on Jerome McDougle's tenure with the Eagles. The Eagles now have great depth at the DE position as they look to improve on last years' 37 sacks.
