Summary: With a fairly weak crop of seniors in the 2011 NBA Draft class, David Lighty will almost certainly find himself being drafted in the second round. He does not have the upside that is often coveted in the NBA Draft since he is a fifth-year senior, but Lighty does have experience and a proven record of being a winner and hard-nosed player.
Player Comparison: Keith Bogans. Bogans has made a living in the NBA because of his intangibles and ability to defend. Lighty is a capable offensive player but will find a spot in the NBA because of his defensive prowess and value as a role player.
@Bolash747 I agree with a lot of your assessments. But even with the money you freed up. The Eagles are not gonna be able to afford Bennie Logan on the open market, unless he takes a discount. In which is possible, but I doubt it. The Desean Jackson signing believe it or not I love. But he's the 2nd best receiver in the market. Your not getting him at a 1 year prove it deal. He will cost a lot and prob be in the 3 year range. Your better off signing WR Kenny Stills and WR Robert Woods.
