NFL  > Philadelphia Eagles  > Peters is here, OT's cemented in, now what?
April 18, 2009, 07:41 PM
The big mystery of what to do with 2 1st rd. picks has been made somewhat clearer.
Many circles believed the Eagles would take a lineman with one of those picks.
I was not impressed with what might be left on the board(OT) at 21, or 28. Neither were the Eagles. I did not think the trade with Peters was going to happen, but it did. I guess the Eagles felt giving up #28 for a proven commodity was a safer bet than taking a rookie who most likely would not start.
I got a chance to watch some film on Jason Peters on Philadelphiaeagels.com, and he is a very big, and very athletic man (6'4/340). He made the pro bowl in 07, and again in 08 with a sub-par performance. Let's hope he is what he is said to be..."one of the best LT's in the game, and just hitting his prime at 27". Now that he got the money he wanted, he better be opening up holes for Westbrook that you could drive a bus through. The line on paper appears to be very big, very athletic, and most important young. I still would love to get TE Pettigrew, or RB Moreno, Brown, Wells at #21. They just solidified the OT position, and paid both men a lot of cash. It seems more unlikely the Boldin trade will come to fruition (they still have to square away D-Mac's extension). What other position would make more sense than RB at #21 if TE Pettigrew is gone?
