Oka, here it goes if McNabb doesnt get any offensive help he should opt out of his contract. The Eagles have at least 25 million to sign free agents and rookies. I think they should heavly pursue A. Boldin IF he becomes available. The Eagles should offer this trade: Reggie Brown and a 2nd draft pick for A. Boldin. Reggie Brown and Boldin contracts are almost the same so why not open up your wallet and get err done.... Sorry, but I don't think highly of Reggie Brown! Has he had a 1000 yd season yet? U just dont give that kinda money to players that arent proven.

Oka secondly, I would normally say they need an OT(Micheal Oher) with Runyan being older and depth chart concerns. If the Eagles were able to acquire Boldin picking up Micheal Oher wouldnt be a bad 21st pick. The Eagles O-Line would be strong and have depth especially with picking up Stacey Andrews. Andrews is young and has alot of upside. With the 28th pick they should pursue a RB to spell Westbrook (especially since he's constantly hurt). Possibly Knowshon Moreno or Chris Wells.

Ive heard talk about the Eagles are in desperate need of a TE. I think Brent Celek was coming along just fine he blocks and he can catch. He's not the fastest however he gets the job done. So thats not a necessity.

If the Eagles arent able to obtain A. Boldin they should pick up a big physical reciever. Possibly Hakeem Hicks or Heyward-Bay. With that being said for my secret weapon they should immediately give Torry Holt a call after the draft. He's a great route runner, and he would be a great mentor for your talented group of young recievers. The Eagles should pick up Torry Holt reguardless if they acquire A.Boldin or not. However, I wouldnt pick up Holt without a big strong physical reciever. EAGLES have to have a physical reciever! This would be an offensive nightmare McNabb, Westbrook, Boldin, Holt, Curtis/Jackson. Or McNabb, Westbrook, R.Brown/Holt/ Heyward-Bay, D.Jackson/Curtis Choose your posion..OMG can u smell Conference Champs
