DANIEL Te'o-Nesheim might have been doomed here from the moment the Eagles selected him in the third round of the 2010 draft. The team hasn't really taken a third-rounder it ended up liking since Brian Westbrook in 2002. The litany of disappointment since then includes Billy McMullen (2003), Matt Ware (2004), Ryan Moats (2005), Tony Hunt (2007) and Bryan Smith (2008). Stewart Bradley (2007) was a decent player who quickly fell out of favor following a knee injury. Te'o-Nesheim was signed off the Eagles' practice squad yesterday by the Tampa Bay Bucs.

Who: Eagles vs. New York Jets. What: Fourth exhibition game When: Tonight, 7:30 Where: MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, N.J. TV: 6ABC Radio: WYSP (94.1-FM), WIP (610-AM), ESPN (97.3-FM) Five things to watch in tonight's game: 1. Vince Young/Mike Kafka: Not really a roster battle; both will make the team. A battle to see who is No. 2. Unless Young, tonight's starter, really looks lost, it's almost certainly his job. His NFL experience, stronger arm and superior athleticism trump Kafka's hard work during the lockout.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Another day passed Thursday, and the baptism of rookie right guard Danny Watkins continued. Three backup defensive linemen - Juqua Parker, Phillip Hunt, and Daniel Te'o-Nesheim - schooled the Eagles' right side of Watkins and tackle Austin Howard during one drill. In defensive line coach Jim Washburn's scheme, when the defensive end lines up wide it creates room for the end to use his speed to get around the tackle. It also creates a slingshot that's tough for the guard (read: Watkins)

Even though draft prognostication and second-guessing are great fun for the fans, I think we all, deep down, would concede that we don't have the information and experience that general managers and coaches have. Before drafting a player, Andy Reid has probably watched film of nearly every play he played in his college career. Andy is now the longest-tenured coach in the NFL, and many fans think that he has not had a good record of success with his picks. I believe the record shows he has. Of the Eagles' 12 drafts under Reid, I would rate one as great, four as very good, three as good, one as fair, two as poor and one as horrible.

Last offseason, the Eagles went after Julius Peppers but came up short. Could Ray Edwards be the Eagles' big free-agent defensive end acquisition this year? The Eagles have shown interest in the Minnesota end, a league source said. They can officially contact Edwards on Tuesday at 10 a.m., when teams can start negotiating with free agents. The flirtation with Edwards began before the lockout, so it remains to be seen if the Eagles still have the 26-year-old atop their wish list.

If the question was why would Andy Reid uncharacteristically proclaim that an injured Brandon Graham would not return by the season opener, then the answer is microfracture knee surgery. The Eagles defensive end underwent the procedure on his right knee nine days after he tore his anterior cruciate ligament against the Cowboys on Dec. 12, although the operation was not known about at the time. Graham and multiple sources confirmed the report, first made by AnnArbor.com, on Wednesday.

Here are a few takeaways from the Eagles' preseason victory over the Browns on Thursday: The best news about quarterback Michael Vick was that he emerged without injuries after starting behind a porous offensive line. He had 10 completions, but seven went on short passes to running back LeSean McCoy. Vick's receivers were not getting open, and he often had little time to work. He wisely went to the wide-open McCoy, who was able to make people miss. Vick had no touchdown throws but also no interceptions - though he got bailed out of one by a phantom roughing-the-passer call.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Here is a rough first draft of what the Eagles' depth chart may look like. It is more of how the offense and defense would look if everyone was healthy and/or here. This is also not a projection of how the starting team will look by the Sept. 11 opener. Injured or missing players are in parentheses: OFFENSE   WR: (Jeremy Maclin); Riley Cooper; Chad Hall LT: Jason Peters; King Dunlap; Austin Howard LG: Todd Herremans; Evan Mathis; Julian Vandervelde C: Jamaal Jackson; Jason Kelce; Mike McGlynn RG: Danny Watkins; Mike McGlynn; A.Q. Shipley RT: (Winston Justice)

The news of Mike Kafka's signing a futures contract with the New England Patriots on Thursday makes this a good time to revisit the Eagles' 2010 draft class - and specifically the fourth round. That's when Kafka went. He was one of four fourth-round picks for the Eagles. A fourth-round pick in the NFL has value - but not significant value. There's rougly a 10 percent chance of finding a starter in that round. Of course, based on those odds, the Eagles had a realistic statistical chance of finding a starter in that round.

The Eagles added some offensive line depth Sunday, and perhaps a competitor to first-round pick Danny Watkins, signing guard Kyle DeVan, formerly of the Indianapolis Colts. DeVan, 6-foot-2, 306 pounds, started nine games in 2009 under current Eagles offensive line coach Howard Mudd. He started 12 in 2010 but was released in the Colts' final cut down last weekend. DeVan, 26, could challenge Watkins for the right guard job. Watkins has struggled in the preseason while DeVan is already familiar with Mudd's ways.

Recent history: The Eagles defeated Tampa Bay, 33-14, on Oct. 11, 2009 at the Linc, and lead the series, 8-7. OFFENSE Eagles 362.6 yards per game (12th) Buccaneers 360.4 yards per game (14th) Quarterback Eagles Nick Foles played much better against Dallas than he did the week before against Carolina, completing 65 percent of his passes, including 8 of 12 passes under pressure. He hasn't thrown an interception in 11 quarters and 91 attempts. Bucs Josh Freeman has a strong arm and isn't afraid to use it. Almost 20 percent of his attempts have traveled 20-plus yards.

The Trevor Laws Eagles era ended last week without fanfare. At this point it has become commonplace: another high draft pick expended on a defensive lineman, another come and gone without making even a dent in the starting lineup. The Eagles' dubious history with drafting on defense has been well-documented, especially on the line, where Andy Reid has invested so many of his top selections over the last decade. Despite those missteps - or perhaps because of them - the Eagles are again poised to take a defensive lineman in the early stages of this year's draft.

When Jeffrey Lurie delivered his Eagles state-of-disarray address, most of the focus was on his decision to give coach Andy Reid another season despite his "unacceptable" 2011 campaign. And rightly so. With the team's decision-makers mostly gathered in Mobile, Ala., for Senior Bowl workouts, it seems like an appropriate time to reflect on another of Lurie's comments: his reply to a question about the team's recent drafts, especially on defense. "I think the analysis is complicated," Lurie said.

MOBILE, Ala. - Howie Roseman has a problem. His two drafts, while not complete busts and still not near final judgment time, have yet to deliver what would commonly be referred to as an impact player. Roseman, who has increasingly become a lightning rod for fan discontent, enters his third season as Eagles general manager with a resumé that highlights some of his successes in the latter rounds, but buries his less-than-impressive selections in the early rounds. Of the 12 players the Eagles have chosen in the first four rounds of the last two drafts, 10 have started a total of 76 games if you include Alex Henery's 16 starts at kicker.

Last Sunday, when the Eagles revealed their list of players who would not dress in the opener against the Rams, three of seven names stood out: guard Danny Watkins, safety Jaiquawn Jarrett, and cornerback Curtis Marsh. They are, in order, the Eagles' first-, second- and third-round draft picks of 2011. For various reasons they weren't ready to suit up for their first professional game. Of all 32 NFL teams, the Eagles and New York Giants were the only ones to not have a player selected in the first three rounds active in the opener.

The NFL regular season must be getting close, because there is suddenly extra space to maneuver in the Eagles locker room at the NovaCare Complex. The temporary lockers that are wheeled into the middle of the long room to accommodate the overflow of a training camp roster are being wheeled out gradually, and the cubbies that remain are increasingly vacant, like abandoned purple martin houses after the fall migration. The final cut-down weekend removed 18 players from the roster, including defensive tackle Cedric Thornton, who suffered the cruelest cut of all, making it safely through Saturday's deletions only to get the unwanted phone call Sunday.
