The URL shows ourlads.com which has been doing their own versions of teams depth charts and updating them (as they see it shaking out) as moves are made this offseason.

Offensively we all know McCoy will be out RB, and Maclin/Jackson will be our WRs there wasn't any doubt of that. The FB position has been answered with the multi tool James Casey who will more then likely play more of an Hback rather then traditional FB. The biggest question mark going into this off season was the QB and the future of Vick. At first personally I wanted him gone ASAP. The frustration of two turnover plagued seasons had be begging for them to cut him even before they hired a head coach (I even thought it would make it more appealing to attract coaching candidates). However, the more it sinks in the more I like the move made to keep him. This draft clearly doesn't have a QB that anyone is pointing to and saying "THAT'S THE GUY!!!!", Vick allows us to not HAVE to reach for a player (cough cough Geno Smith).

Our offensive line is set to return! Peters, Kelce, Watkins, and Herremans are all back and Mathis is still around. It may not be you're wet dream of a starting offensive line but it's a starting line none the less. 

To the defense:

4-3? 3-4? 4-3 under? who knows maybe we'll just put five guys on the field and run the Syracuse mens basketball team's famous zone defense. Obviously that's a joke and the team is moving to the 3-4 at some point. With that it looks like the D-line will be Cox, Sopoaga, and then Cole/Graham/Curry/Thornton/etc...? take your pick. It doesn't really matter the point is somewhere in that mix we've got a guy who can start. The linebackers are Barwin, Ryans, Kendricks, and Cole/Graham/Curry/Hunt/etc...? Again dealer's choice here and while we may not have the IDEAL guy we do have A guy. 

Gone are Nnamdi Asomugha and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, enter Bradley Fletcher and Cary Williams. Maybe not the most exciting names but there they are. Kenny Phillips and Patrick Chung have been brought in to revamp the safety slots in an effort to get away from the Coleman/Allen/Anderson clusterF*** of last season. 

It may not be pretty and there still may be questions as to who starts where but there you have it your (current) starting 2013 Eagles. WE HAVE A FULL STARTING ROSTER!!! Is there room for improvement? Absolutely! Are there guys who I wish we didn't have to rely as on day one starters? You bet! 

But wait there is a silver lining! Sure you can point to the RG spot and say Watkins isn't the ideal guy or look at Bradley Fletcher and ask if he's really starting caliber. My point is we have guy who can start, maybe not be stars or elite or even good. They can just be, and that's fine for this season. 

Now we are set to actually draft the best available guy in this years draft! Whether it's an offensive linemen, or Dee Milliner or a guy for our defensive front 7 we can get whoever the Eagles see as the best! This is great for us moving forward with the rebuild because we don't have to reach and take unnecessary risks.

Lets say that we let Vick go, everyone would point to that and say "the Eagles NEEEEEEEEED a QB" and they'd be right. We'd automatically be penciled in by everyone as taking Geno Smith with very little debate between the "experts". Pressure from fans for an answer would probably force the Eagles hand and they'd HAVE to take Geno at 4. Well what then when/if Geno struggles or dare I say busts. We are left without and upgrade at another position AND and even bigger glaring hole at QB.

Don't fret my friends, the Eagles have covered their butts and set themselves up to take the guy they like rather then the guy they think they need. They remembered their 8 P's (prior, proper planning prevents piss poor performance and pregnancy) and set this team up to effectively rebuild the way they should!
