With the 2013 NFL Draft less than a week away, we still don’t have a great idea as to what Chip Kelly and the Philadelphia Eagles will do.
Unless they trade back to the 12th spot or later, the Eagles’ first-round targets will most likely be one of these guys: Eric Fisher, Luke Joeckel, Lane Johnson, Dion Jordan or Star Lotulelei. If they trade back to No. 12 or later, that list will be completely different.
Most of the focus surrounding this draft has been at OT, OLB and DT, even into the second and third rounds. However, there is a very real possibility that the Eagles take a pass-catcher on Day 2 of the draft.
Whether it’s a WR or a TE, Chip Kelly could be looking for another offensive weapon.
Conventional thinking is that with DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin, and Brent Celek entrenched as the starters along with the additions of James Casey and Arrelious Benn, there is no need to take a player at one of these positions so high.
And to be honest, I agree with that notion.
