Eagles sign rookie Marcus Smith
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Eagles signed rookie defensive end Marcus Smith on Monday to a four-year deal, the team announced. Smith was selected in the first round of the NFL Draft at No. 26 overall from Louisville.

"It means everything," Smith said. "I've been waiting on it for a long time, been wanting to sign my contract just to get everything over with. It just feels great to be an Eagle and have no worries and go on the field and do what I do best. When I put the pen to paper? The first person I think of is my mom. She did so many things for me and I just feel like I could go out and do something special for her."

Smith is expected to be a rotational pass rusher for the Eagles this season. He had 14.5 sacks in 2013.

Fantasy owners must practice patience with Marcus Smith
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

The selection of Marcus Smith left a lot of people scratching their heads, but the reality is that the Eagles were bowled over with his film and wanted to add another pass rusher to the mix. The plan in Philadelphia is to make him their outside linebacker and have him attack the quarterback, a position Smith himself used to play. Eagles coach Chip Kelly sees "huge upside" in Smith.

Odds are Smith will spend much of this season working in a rotation with Connor Barwin and Trent Cole . But the time will come soon enough where he'll bump one of them off the roster -- potentially Cole since he's older and makes a bunch of money.

Fantasy owners will have to be patient in waiting for Smith to see every-down work, and it won't be until then when he'll have some numbers -- not great numbers -- because outside linebackers typically need a ton of sacks and other stats to supplement their weak (by comparison) tackle totals. Smith should be a good mid-round pick in rookie-only drafts and a late-round choice in dynasty/keeper leagues but he's not worth taking in a standard seasonal format.

Eagles land pass rusher Marcus Smith
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

With the 26th pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Eagles selected Louisville outside linebacker Marcus Smith .

Considered a bit undersized at 6-foot-3 and 251 pounds, Smith is known for his very good speed, quickness off the snap and athleticism. He's also smart and is a former quarterback. He had 14.5 sacks last season with the Louisville Cardinals while playing defensive end and 24 total in three seasons with 83 total tackles. He should end up playing a prominent role on passing downs right away.

The Eagles traded down from pick 22 in the first round in a deal with the Browns, picking up a third-round pick in the process.
