NFL  > Philadelphia Eagles  > Big time draft!
March 13, 2009, 11:40 PM
This could be a huge draft for us, think of the options we have this year.
It is conceivable that we can get a starting caliber RB, TE, WR, with the first three picks. We have 12 which means we can move up in the second and grab any of the 3 positions mentioned. This could have a huge impact on the future of the offense.
Is it that far of a reach that Andy surprises us all and goes offensive skill positions with 1,2,3? He has tended the lines off/def the last few years...and we got a steal with D-Jack in the 2nd last year. I dont think we should trade for Boldin, we would have to give up picks, and he wants Fitz money. Nobody knows what he is going to be like without Fitz on the other side so why pay him a kings ransom? We could get some good young talent with the flexibility we have with all these picks, plus Lurie made the Forbes Mag. short list of American billionaires.(which should have all the picks signed and ready for camp)plus 40$ under the cap!
The defense is going to be great again, and we have depth there...We drafted linemen Gibson, McGlynn, and Dunlap last year and signed Andrews. There is depth at O-line despite reports from writers about glaring holes. Wells@21,Britt@28,Nelson or Cook(trading up in rd 2 of course). This draft has the potential to keep us making play-off runs the next 5 years if the skill positions are addressed early and aggressively.
