If you were unaware, the Philadelphia Eagles did something they haven’t done in the last 156 draft picks. They took an Alabama player. Drafting DeVonta Smith with the 10th pick after trading up with the Cowboys, giving up their later 3rd round pick. This allowed the Eagles to get in front of the New York Giants who had their sights set on Smith.
Look, this was pretty rare because Howie Roseman actually did well. Were not used to that in Philly. In an attempt to be positive, Ive found some instant twitter reaction from the pick.
The Cuz likes it! And a happy Cuz is the BEST Cuz

This was fun!
Great pick. Love Smith. Dallas? Was the gain of a third rounder worth having to deal with Smith for years? They could have taken Parsons at 10. Guess they feared Giants taking Smith more? What’s that say?— Mike Missanelli (@MikeMiss25) April 30, 2021
the Smith pick passes the Missanelli test
