Thoughts On The Eagles’ First RoundBREAKING NEWS, Eagles, News Thursday, May 8th, 2014
A lot of people are holding out hope that the Eagles will use their high picks to address the defense, but I just don’t see it.
This coach thinks offense-first, and after making such a bold move to release a Pro Bowl receiver who had over 80 catches, 1,300 yards, and nine touchdowns, you can bet that Chip Kelly will want to make absolutely sure that he has as much top firepower as he can get his hands on.
A trade up doesn’t make a lot of sense for the Eagles. With only six picks available to them in this draft, they don’t really have the resources to justify sacrificing multiple picks in such a deep draft to move up for one guy.
I think the pick is going to be Marqise Lee. If Lee isn’t there, then the Eagles could still take either Kelvin Benjamin or Brandin Cooks, but trading down is also a very real possibility if the Eagles can pick up some extra picks and still get a wide receiver that they feel can make an impact.
