The Eagles picked up a third-rounder for moving down, and then they picked up the pass rush they needed.
After allowing Cleveland to trade up to No. 22 to take Johnny Manziel, the Eagles took Louisville defensive end Marcus Smith with the 26th overall pick.
Smith had 14.5 sacks and four forced fumbles for the Cardinals last year, and gives the Eagles the kind of edge-rusher they need to play outside linebacker.
Fixing the defense was a priority for the Eagles, and they still have plenty of work to do.
