Offensive Line Even with Jason Peters, Jason Kelce, and Todd Herremans returning from injury, the Eagles still have problems on the offensive line, and could use some fresh blood to upgrade the talent and give themselves more flexibility for this year and beyond.

  • If Dion Jordan is gone sign Eric Winston (after the draft obviously) slide Herremans back inside where he is better suited and trade down. Fisher or Joeckel would be so tempting and even Lane Johnson are all better than Winston BUT they have so many needs on the defensive side: 1) another DE opposite Fletcher Cox 2) they desperately need safety help in the 2nd or 3rd rnd at the latest. AND CB depth (is Fletcher a starting CB in this league?) and dont forget that all important rush LB ala Jordan, essential in a 3-4, hybrid or not.

    Not to mention a QB!

    EJ Manuel is the best fit for this offense. Hes not a cant miss by any stretch but a year on the bench getting coached up he could be special in Chips offense in a year or two.

    Lets not forget Chips a fast paced offensive guy who helped develop the PATs offense so we cant rule out Tavon Austin and some Aaron Hernandez/Gronk types. Dont rule out trading trent Cole or Maclin either. Chip is unconventional so dont expect a typical draft. AND BY ALL MEANS dont expect an Andy REID draft for F's sake!!!!!

    I'm expecting an unconventional draft from an unconventional guy.

    Whatever happens its already a refreshing change from Big Red's we dont need receivers or safeties or middle LBs cuz I'm the smartest guy in the room screw the fans approach.
