NFL Draft: Andy Reid's Draft History


Updated Feb. 15, 2010.


Back in 2009, it seemed as though every Eagles fan wanted Andy Reid to take Knowshon Moreno or Chris Wells with one of his two first-round picks.

However, I never mocked either running back to Philadelphia at Nos. 21 or 28. I had Eagle fans ask me about it, and to that I always said that Reid just doesn't value the running back position.

So, what does Reid value? Well, he's gone defensive line three out of the last four years. And contrary to popular belief, he tends pursue wide receivers, though his track record is pretty abysmal (excluding DeSean Jackson: Na Brown, Todd Pinkston, Gari Scott, Freddie Mitchell, Freddie Milons, Billy McMullen, Reggie Brown, Jason Avant, Jeremy Bloom.)

Most of all, Reid takes pleasure in pissing off the fanbase.

Here is the positional breakdown of all the selections Reid has made in the first three rounds since taking over in Philly in 1999.

Reid has never drafted a running back higher than the middle of the second round. He let Duce Staley go when he was 28. He refused to pay Brian Westbrook what he was worth until he realized that he didn't really have a choice. Reid is unpredictable, so you never know, but I would have been shocked if he pulled the trigger on either Wells or Moreno in the first round.
