Selections: Greg Lloyd, LB, Connecticut; Stanley Havili, FB, USC

The Eagles ended their draft by adding two more players in the seventh round.

With their first pick in the seventh round, the Eagles selected Greg Lloyd, whose father was a dominant player for the Pittsburgh Steelers.  Lloyd has good size and is known to be a guy who will blow up running backs who come through the middle.  The Eagles really lack a scary big hitter, so you have to like the presence that Lloyd brings in.

However, Lloyd was definitely a risky pick for the Birds.  He tore both his ACL and MCL towards the end of his 2009 season, and it caused him to miss significant time in 2010.  In recent years, the Eagles have shown a willingness to take risks on players with knee injuries out of college.  They haven't exactly panned out, so they will hope that Lloyd's injury days are behind him.

With their Mr. Irrelevant pick of the 2011 draft, the Eagles took fullback Stanley Havili.  Although he's listed as a fullback, Havili may be better labeled as an over-sized running back.

Havili isn't your traditional blocking fullback.  Instead, he's more of a situational runner and a guy with a nice set of hands who can catch passes out of the backfield.  I'm sure the Eagles love his pass catching ability, but in a crowded backfield, it's hard to see where Havili fits in.

Grade: C

Taking a look back at the 2011 Eagles draft class

The 2011 season was the worst season that Andy Reid and the Philadelphia Eagles had experienced in the last four years. Their 8 – 8 record was compounded by a poor draft class.

Reid was fired after the 2012 season. A large part of Reid’s undoing was how little production the Eagles got out of the 2011 draft class.

Recapping the Philadelphia Eagles 2013 NFL Draft Class

Here is a look at the players that were selected in 2011:

Round 1 (23rd overall) Danny Watkins OG

Watkins was the oldest first-round selection since 1980. He was active and inactive for the first four games of the season. Watkins was ineffective and criticized for being more fascinated with the local fire department than football. The Eagles released him in 2013.

Round 2 (54th overall) Jaquan Jarrett FS 

Jarrett struggled to produce as a rookie. He played in 12 games and only had 15 tackles as a rookie. The Eagles released Jarrett one year after using a second round pick on him.

Round 3 (90th overall) Curtis Marsh DB

Marsh had a similar struggle. He lasted two seasons with the Eagles and did not make a single start. Marsh had 14 tackles and two pass breakups in two seasons with the Eagles.

The Eagles released Marsh and he signed with the Cincinnati Bengals in 2013. The Eagles signed him in November of that year only to release him in August. He last played for the Denver Broncos in 2014.

Round 4 (116th overall) Casey Matthews LB

Matthews opened the season as the Eagles starting middle linebacker. He switched to weak-side linebacker and after just one game he was benched.

Matthews spent three more seasons with the Eagles, primarily as in a reserve role. The Minnesota Vikings signed Matthews in 2015, but he was placed on injured reserve.

Round 4 (120th overall) Alex Henery K

Henery was brought on to replace David Akers after he signed a free agent contract with the San Francisco 49ers. He set an NFL record for field goal accuracy by a rookie kicker.

Henery set a franchise record in 2012 by making 18 consecutive field goals. Henery lost his job to Cody Parkey in 2014. Parkey was released by the Detroit Lions after missing three field goals in a loss to the Buffalo Bills in 2014.

Round 5 (149th overall) Dion Lewis RB

Lewis had two unproductive seasons with the Eagles in 2011 and 2012. The Eagles sent Lewis to the Cleveland Browns in exchange for linebacker Emmanuel Acho. He was released by the Browns and signed with the New England Patriots in 2014.

Round 5 (161st overall) Julian Vandervelde OG

Vandervelde spent time off and on the Eagles active roster for five years. He played the most in 2013, appearing in 14 games. Vandervelde spent some time playing center in 2013 as well.

Round 6 (191st overall) Jason Kelce Center

Kelce is the best selection of the 2011 draft for the Eagles. He is still a starter and is one of the best centers in the NFL. Kelce was named to the Pro Bowl in 2014.

Round 6 (193rd overall) Brian Rolle LB

Rolle became the Eagles starting weak-side linebacker early in the season and started all of Philadelphia’s remaining games. He was released in 2013 after being criticized for poor special teams play. Rolle is currently on the Toronto Argonauts.

Round 7 (237th overall) Greg Lloyd LB

Lloyd’s father was a Pro Bowl linebacker for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Lloyd was released and signed to the practice squad in 2011. The Eagles traded Lloyd to the Indianapolis Colts in 2012. He was released soon after and signed with the Buffalo Bills only to be released again.

Round 7 (240th overall) Stanley Havili

Havali was released by the Eagles in the final round of roster cuts before the start of the regular season. He was resigned to the practice sqaud and made it onto the active roster. Havali made two starts for the Eagles in 2012. The Eagles traded Havali to the Indianapolis Colts in exchange for Clifton Geathers.

The 2011 NFL Draft is over and the Eagles selected a whopping eleven players. With so much uncertainty surrounding next year and free agency not happening, this probably isn't a bad year to have brought in a lot of bodies. We can call this "The Bloodlines Draft." The Eagles drafted three players with relatives that were pro bowlers in the NFL.

So without further ado, here is the full draft class in all its glory with links to all of our stories and analysis of each pick.

Philadelphia Eagles Draft TE Dallas Goedert - 2018 NFL Draft

2011 Eagles draft class considered one of worst this century

The 2011 Philadelphia Eagles draft class is one of the worst in franchise history, but isn't the worst among the league this century. Yahoo! Sports ranked the worst draft classes in the 21st century, but the 2011 Eagles class wasn't one of the top ten...but they were considered.

The Eagles 2011 draft class was the worst under Howie Roseman and defined his legacy for a long time in Philadelphia. If it wasn't for Jason Kelce, this class would probably have made the top ten on Yahoo's list.

Let's take a look back at the 2011 Eagles draft class and how bad it was:

Danny Watkins (First Round)

Watkins was more interested in being a fireman than actually playing football, not good for a player that was a first-round pick in 2011.

Here was the Sports Illustrated story on the first-round bust. All you need to know:

"(Eagles offensive line coach) Howard Mudd remembers word spreading through the Eagles’ facility sometime during the second half of that nightmare 2012 season. This was Mudd’s 45th year in professional football, as a player and a coach. “Never have I heard something so ridiculous," he says. "Not in my entire NFL career.

"Danny Watkins was spotted on the 11 o’clock news, in full gear. Not pine green with a white 63 on his chest. Philadelphia Fire Department. Watkins insists it was a misunderstanding, that he was only wearing the gear as part of charity work with his firefighter-related foundation.

"As far as the Eagles organization was concerned, they finally had an explanation. This was why their first-round pick was giving them the kind of measly performance they could get from a street free agent. He wasn’t putting in the time, not pulling his weight during the week. Watkins denies it, but those within the organization were certain what they had found: Danny Watkins was moonlighting as a firefighter."

Watkins played just two seasons before being released by the Eagles. Fact of the matter was, he wasn't good nor did he care about playing in the NFL.

He did make $7.1 million for his troubles.

Jaiquawn Jarrett (Second Round)

Jarrett played just five NFL seasons, but just two in Philadelphia. He had just 16 tackles in his Eagles career and was a healthy scratch throughout the 2012 season, only playing one game. Jarrett played three more years with the New York Jets, having just 1.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and two interceptions.

Curtis Marsh (Third Round)

Marsh was out of the NFL after four season, only having 14 tackles and two passes defensed with the Eagles. He also had two fumbles. Marsh played just 26 NFL games with three different teams.

Casey Matthews (Fourth Round)

Matthews played four seasons with the Eagles and was actually one of the more successful picks of this class. Matthews finished with 112 tackles, 2.5 sacks and a forced fumble in 64 games in an Eagles uniform (16 starts). The only reason Matthews was around the Eagles that long was because Chip Kelly had an affinity for Oregon players.

Alex Henery (Fourth Round)

Yes the Eagles used a fourth-round pick on a kicker, but Henery wasn't bad early on. Henery made 88.9 percent of his field goals in his rookie year, but was just 3-for-8 in his career outside of 50 yards...which is why the Eagles moved on from him.

The Eagles released Henery in favor of Cody Parkey. Henery had a brief stint with the Detroit Lions before he was out of the league.

Dion Lewis (Fifth Round)

Lewis is still in the NFL as a valuable pass-catching back, but the Eagles moved on from him after two years. Lewis had 36 carries for 171 yards and three catches for 21 yards as the No. 3 running back behind LeSean McCoy and Bryce Brown.

In 2017, Lewis was one of the more electrifying backs in the NFL rushing for 896 yards and six touchdowns. while catching 32 passes for 214 yards and three touchdowns with the New England Patriots. Lewis has 3,218 all-purpose yards in eight NFL seasons.

Julian Vandervelde (Fifth Round)

Vandervelde was on and off the Eagles roster for five seasons, playing 17 games with no starts.

Jason Kelce (Sixth Round)

The draft pick that saved this class from futility. Kelce has made two Pro Bowls and three All-Pro teams and is the best center in the NFL.

Kelce is coming off one of his best seasons in the NFL, earning a second consecutive All-Pro selection. Graded as the No. 1 center in football, Kelce earned his second consecutive All-Pro selection. Kelce finishedNo. 2 amongst centers in pass protection and the top ranked run blocker in the league. Kelce graded as the No. 1 center in football by PFF and has allowed just 10 pressures on the season.

In 1,037 snaps, Kelce finished with a grade of 87.7, allowing just two hits and eight hurries. He had just six penalties on the season.

Kelce had his best season in pass protection in his eight-year career. The 10 pressures he allowed were the lowest in a 16-game season, 12 fewer than the 22 he allowed in 2017 when he was PFF's highest-graded center ever (PFF started calculating grades in 2006).

Brian Rolle (Sixth Round)

Rolle started 13 games on the 2011 Eagles defense, having 54 tackles, four quarterback hits, a sack and a forced fumble. He played just four games in 2012 and wa sout of the league after the year.

Greg Lloyd (Seventh Round)

Lloyd never played a game with the Eagles, but two games with the Buffalo Bills in 2012.

Stanley Havili (Seventh Round)

The fullback for the Eagles in 2012, Havili had six carries for 22 yards and seven catches for 43 yards in his one year with the Eagles. He played 2013 with the Indiapolis Colts before being out of the league by 2014.

5 Worst Philadelphia Eagles draft picks during Howie Roseman’s era

Philadelphia Eagles

Many Philadelphia Eagles fans forget just how bad 2011 ‘s draft was.

1. Danny Watkins, Guard

With their first pick in the 2011 NFL draft, the Philadelphia Eagles selected Danny Watkins out of Baylor to play right guard. Some of you may have forgotten about the former fireman. He was the oldest player taken in the draft by far at 26 years of age after being taken a year earlier in the CFL Draft.

If you have forgotten about Watkins, no one would blame you. He was only in Philly for two years and only in the NFL for three years. He was eligible for 48 games during his career but only appeared in 18. He was released in 2013, with Roseman stating that the toughness he displayed at Baylor didn’t ever transfer to the next level. He’s again a firefighter and living in Texas.

2. Jaiquawn Jarrett, Safety

With their second pick in the 2011 NFL draft, the Eagles picked Jaiquawn Jarrett out of Temple University. He lasted one full season with the Eagles before being cut in September of 2012. For his career, he appeared in 47 games with nine starts. He retired after a fifth NFL season, one he played as a member of the New York Jets.

If you think these past two drafts have been bad, they don’t even compare to what was seen in 2011, except for a sixth-rounder by the name of Jason Kelce of course. There was also Dion Lewis, who was a fifth-rounder and is still an NFL journeyman who’s currently with the New York Giants, but that’s it. No one else from that Eagles draft class is still in the league.

2011 Philadelphia Eagles season

79th season in franchise history; derisively called "Dream Team"

The 2011Philadelphia Eaglesseason was the franchise's 79th season in the National Football League, and the thirteenth under head coachAndy Reid. The Eagles had high hopes of competing for a Super Bowl with several notable offseason acquisitions – new backup quarterback Vince Young commented that the roster was a "dream team" – but ultimately failed to improve on their 10–6 record from 2010 and missed the playoffs for the first time since 2007. However, they did win their last four games, in an attempt to pull out a miracle playoff berth, finishing 8–8, only one game behind the divisional winners and eventual Super Bowl champions, the New York Giants. They also swept the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins for the first time since 2006 and 2009, respectively. The Eagles played all their home games at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.


Personnel changes[edit]

On January 15, defensive coordinatorSean McDermott was fired.[2]Defensive line coach Rory Segrest was fired on January 16.[3] Former Tennessee Titans' defensive line coach Jim Washburn was hired to the same position by the Eagles' on January 19.[4] Special teams quality control coach Jeff Nixon was hired by the Miami Dolphins as their running backs coach on January 20.[5] Defensive backs coach and senior assistant Dick Jauron was hired by the Cleveland Browns as their new defensive coordinator on January 21.[6] On January 25, linebackers coach Bill Shuey, who served on the Eagles' coaching staff for the past ten seasons, was let go after his contract was not renewed.[7] On February 2, Juan Castillo, who served as the team's offensive line coach since 1998, was named the new defensive coordinator. That same day, Howard Mudd was hired as the new offensive line coach.[8] Quarterback Coach James Urban left to take a job as the Wide Receiver Coach for the Cincinnati Bengals.

Roster changes[edit]

The Eagles made several high-profile additions in the offseason, including Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Nnamdi Asomugha, Vince Young, Ronnie Brown, Evan Mathis, Steve Smith from the rival New York Giants, and Jason Babin. With the numerous signings in addition to the previous years' players, Young later enthusiastically commented during a training camp interview, calling the 2011 Eagles a "dream team".

Now discussing:

Eagles draft history: Their best and worst values of this century

By Nick Fierro

The Morning Call|

Apr 19, 2020 at 2:56 PM

History has taught us that great players can be found all over the NFL Draft, not just in the early rounds. Some of the best aren’t even drafted.

The Philadelphia Eagles’ draft history underscores the kind of crapshoot this annual exercise proves to be, year after year.

The more of a science the league tries to turn the draft into, the more of an art it remains.

With that thought in mind, and with this year’s draft (Thursday through Saturday) fast approaching, here’s a look at this team’s best and worst draft values of this century.

1. DE Trent Cole, 5th round, 2005

Among the Eagles drafted ahead of Cole in the same draft were Reggie Brown, Matt McCoy, Ryan Moats and Sean Considine. So if you’re wondering what took so long for the Eagles to get back to the Super Bowl after being in the game less than four months earlier, it was this kind of thing.

Anyway, Cole went on to get 85.5 sacks over the next 10 seasons. That was good to rank him second on the team all-time, behind only Reggie White (124). Cole also is the first of three players on this top five list from the University of Cincinnati.

2. RB Brian Westbrook, 3rd round, 2002

This Villanova player, taken 91st overall, already had an injury history. But he turned out to be the prototype back for coach Andy Reid’s version of the West Coast offense.

Then again, he would have been the prototype for any offense because he did everything so well.

Brian Westbrook (left) proved to be perhaps the finest all-around back the Eagles ever had.

He ranks third on the Eagles’ all-time rushing list, with 5,995 yards, and fourth in receptions, with 426. His 90 receptions in 2007 rank second on the team’s all-time list, behind Zach Ertz’s 116 in 2018.

3. C Jason Kelce, 6th round, 2011

We already talked about the 2005 draft, but this one would have gone down as the worst of all time for any team if it wasn’t for the likely accidental hit on Kelce at 191 overall.

Kelce is a three-time All-Pro and three-time Pro Bowl selection and arguably the second greatest Eagles center of all-time, behind Hall-of-Famer Chuck Bednarik.

The Eagles had 10 other picks in this draft. They took Danny Watkins, Jaiquawn Jarrett, Curtis Marsh, Casey Matthews, Alex Henery, Dion Lewis and Julian Vandervelde ahead of Kelce and Brian Rolle, Greg Lloyd and Stanley Havili after.

Only Jarrett and Lewis went on to have any kind of careers, but not until leaving the Eagles.

No wonder Andy Reid was fired after the 2012 season.

4. OL Todd Herremans, 4th round, 2005

Taken with the 126th selection out of Saginaw Valley State, Herremans went on to play guard and tackle and started 124 games over 10 seasons. Herremans was drafted 20 spots ahead of Cole, but became an anchor on the offensive line, so no complaints.

5. TE Brent Celek, 5th round, 2007

Celek was taken with the 162nd pick out of Cincinnati and went on to reach as high as fourth place on the team’s all-time receptions list. He’s since fallen to fifth after being passed by Ertz.

Celek was a favorite of all three head coaches — Andy Reid, Chip Kelly and Doug Pederson — under whom he played, and was a leader by example in the locker room, setting the standard on how to fine-tune body and mind.

1. DE Jerome McDougle, 1st round, 2003

Not only did the Eagles draft him with the 15th overall selection, but they moved up to get him.

McDougle’s career was a spectacular disappointment that might have had a chance to get off the ground if he wasn’t shot in a robbery attempt just before training camp opened in 2005, forcing him to miss the entire season. He had been moved to the top of the depth chart for the first time by Reid leading up to camp.

HIs absence cleared the way for Cole, who was a rookie in 2005, to shine and eventually become a starter opposite Jevon Kearse.

McDougle, who also missed the entire 2007 season, was out of football by 2009, having recorded just 3.0 sacks and 38 tackles in 37 career games, none of them starts.

One Eagles writer said of him at the time that “he’s the only guy from Miami who can’t play.”

Which would have been right except the Eagles also took McDougle’s Miami teammate Jamaal Green, another defensive end, in the same draft. He couldn’t play either.

2. G Danny Watkins, 1st round, 2011

The Eagles had a great offensive line coach, Howard Mudd, who pounded the table for this guy. It wasn’t Mudd’s finest hour, to say the least.

But it wasn’t that Watkins, taken out of Baylor with the 23rd pick, didn’t have the talent. He did. He just didn’t have the desire.

Danny Watkins (63) never embraced the life of a pro football player.

Watkins really wanted to be a fireman, which he was (part-time) in his native Canada before heading to Baylor. And that’s what he became after just 24 games over the next three seasons in the league.

3. DT Trevor Laws, 2nd round, 2008

Laws was taken out of Notre Dame with the 47th pick, two spots ahead of DeSean Jackson.

How bad would it have been if Jackson had been taken at 48?

Anyway, it was bad enough as it was. Laws played 56 games over four seasons, starting two and compiling a thoroughly unimpressive 57 tackles and 5.0 sacks.

4. LB Marcus Smith, 1st round, 2014

The Eagles traded down to No. 26 and were trying to trade down again but couldn’t when the clock ran out and they had to turn in a pick.

Smith would go on to play just three seasons with the Eagles, appearing in 29 games as an outside linebacker in a 3-4 or defensive end in a 4-3. He compiled just 23 tackles and 4.0 sacks over that span.

He was out of football after two more unspectacular seasons — with Seattle in 2017 and Washington in 2018.

5. CB Sidney Jones, 2nd round, 2017

Much like Watkins, his talent is undeniable but his desire remains in question.

The Eagles are still hoping Jones, taken out of Washington with the 43rd pick, sheds his “soft” label, which has been earned over time and is never easily undone.

In three seasons, Jones has played in just 22 games, with eight starts and two interceptions. Yet he remains in play for a starting job in 2020.

At least until his next injury.
