OFFENSIVE NEEDS

Posted March 23, 2013

THE Eagles only have 8 picks. That said, I’m aware that they can’t use a pick on every one of these positions.  This is just an overview of where those picks would best serve them. The needs are in bold.

 

QB: Of the Future, but this Draft lacks one, so I’d pass this year. (The Eagles will likely draft one.)

RB: Affichage embarrassant de richesses, is how the French would describe us here.

FB: This is a team that can create mismatches at the FB position. How cool is that!?

WR: Deceptively shallow. We have a contract problem coming up with one of the starters, and with Avant being no lock to return, we’d be left with Benn, Cooper, and McNutt. Any of these guys in the slot is a match-up nightmare, but if we needed one of them to be a starter, no one is going to be afraid of that. It would be wise to draft and squirrel a guy away for 2014.

TE: Sooo deep. So very deep.

OT: Lot of bodies but no depth that can step in and be a plausible starter unless Wang surprises us. We need a guy.

G: Mathis is our best and he’s solid, but solid isn’t dominant. We have no dominant or imposing players inside. That’s a problem. We need a guy.

C: Anybody besides me tired of seeing the C pushed back into the QB a few times per game? If so, we need a guy.

K: I’m admittedly still stinging over Akers being gone, and Henery DOES only seem to miss kicks when it’s important. Still he’s consistent enough. So why invent a problem?

LS: We have a very good guy at this position, but I really think we need to get a back-up who can do this as a second position. You have NO IDEA how much the game can be impacted by repeated bad snaps on kicks and punts. (I watched it last season and it was a horror show.) We don’t need to draft a guy, but we sure as hell need a back-up!
