Some info on Heckert

Recommended Posts

In seven seasons with the Eagles, Heckert has engineered very productive drafts, and has built an impressive track record as a talent evaluator. Philadelphia promoted him to general manager in 2006, when the Minnesota Vikings considered him for the same position. Before joining the Eagles in 2001, Heckert worked in the Miami Dolphins' personnel department for 10 years. His father was also a longtime Dolphins personnel official.

In the first draft under Heckert the Eagles selected four Pro Bowlers in Lito Sheppard, Sheldon Brown, Michael Lewis, and Brian Westbrook. Raheem Brock was also taken that draft in the 7th round, but was released due to lack of rookie cap space. Heckert has also gotten credit for the likes of Guard Shawn Andrews, DE Trent Cole, DT Mike Patterson, DT Brodrick Bunkley, LB Omar Gaither, TE L.J. Smith, and many others currently on the Eagles. Tom has a pretty nice career resume. Over his 16-year career in the NFL, Heckert s teams have experienced just one losing season, won their division eight times and made the playoffs 12 times, including five in Philadelphia.
