Philadelphia Eagles: Post Free Agency Complete Seven-Round Mock Draft

March 20, 2013   ·     ·   Jump to comments

The Philadelphia Eagles are in a unique position heading up to the 2013 NFL draft. It’s the highest the team has selected since Andy Reid made Donovan McNabb his first-ever selection.
Chip Kelly’s team needs a quarterback to succeed, and 33-year-old Michael Vick isn’t the answer. It’s equally doubtful that Nick Foles or former Oregon quarterback Dennis Dixon is the long-term solution. Then again, Kelly could afford to upgrade the offensive line. The defense will need playmakers to fit in a 3-4, and the secondary needs a handful of players.

Regardless of what Kelly says, his first draft will be important. It’s no easy task to turn around a 4-12 team. Kelly has his work cut out for him, and drafting well is a must.
