The Philadelphia Eagles have had a storied history and many NFL Draft-day steals have been a part of many accomplishments in Eagles' history.
Thomas played nine seasons with Philadelphia (1991-1999) collecting 33 sacks and 18 interceptions. Thomas was an intricate part of the Philly defense in the 90s.
The 2011 sixth round choice made an immediate impact as a starter his rookie season. Kelce was said to not have "True NFL Size" which he has proved that notion wrong starting 16 games two of last three years.
Celek proved to be a viable pass catching option during his time in Philadelphia, posting 312 catches for 3,975 yards and 26 touchdowns. Celek is a no-nonsense type of TE who will take the big hit and keep on going. He has been a security blanket for Eagles quarterbacks during his career.
Many fans remember Montgomery for his NFC Championship TD run vs. Dallas, but he was a quality back for the Eagles. He played eight years for Philly from 1977-1984 rushing for 6,538 yards and 45 touchdowns -- a two-time All-Pro and Pro Bowl selection who holds several team records.
A 10th round choice who was a two-time Pro Bowler and his No. 40 is retired by the Eagles. Brookshier played seven seasons with Philadelphia before a compound leg fracture ended his career in 1961. He finished his career with 20 interceptions.
An overlooked prospect coming out of Cincinnati in 2005, Cole proved people wrong by becoming a productive pass rusher for the Eagles. He has 79 sacks which puts him second on the Eagles' all-time list.
Drafted 208th overall in 1986, Joyner was cut in training camp but later re-signed by Philadelphia. Joyner spent eight years wearing kelly green, while recording 37 sacks and 17 interceptions. He was named to three All-Pro teams and two Pro Bowl selections.
A small-school versatile back from Villanova, Westbrook caused havoc for defenses with his rushing and receiving abilities. The two-time All-Pro finished his eight seasons with Philadelphia, posting 10,770 all-purpose yards (5,995 rushing and 3,790 receiving) with 426 catches and 68 total touchdowns.
Simmons a ninth-round selection became one of the greats for the Eagles. He played from 1986-1993 collecting 75 sacks (thid in team history). Simmons earned All-Pro and Pro Bowl selections during the 91-92 seasons. He is regarded as one of the best defensive lineman in Eagles' history.
Carmichael a massive WR (6-foot-8) from Southern was picked by the Eagles in the seventh round of the 1971 draft. In his 13 years in Philadelphia, Carmichael was selected to four Pro Bowls and one All-Pro team. He ended his career with 589 receptions for 8,978 yards and 79 career touchdowns (all are Eagles records).
