Philadelphia Eagles Schedule: Projecting the 2012 Regular Season Record

With a strong showing in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Philadelphia Eagles additions of DT Fletcher Cox and LB Mychal Kendricks solidified their position as a legitimate playoff team in 2012.

But Andy Reid didn't stop there. After Kendricks joined the team, the Eagles added DE Vinny Curry and CB Brandon Boykin, who both show a tremendous amount of potential.

Boykin is particularly interesting. Standing only 5'9", he is one of the shorter cornerbacks in the league, but has experience as a slot receiver as well as a punt and kick returner. It has been several years since the Eagles have had a legitimate kick returner, and with experience at the position he will be matched up against, Boykin could prove to be a great prospect moving forward.

All in all, the draft went extremely well for the Eagles, who were able to add depth to both their offensive and defensive lines, while filling necessary holes in the defense.

In 2012, the Eagles have several tough match-ups with Baltimore, New Orleans, Pittsburgh, and Detroit.

Also in the mix are six games against a rejuvenated NFC East that saw additions like QB Robert Griffin III to Washington and CB Morris Claiborne to Dallas.

If one thing is clear, the Eagles have a treacherous road to the 2012 NFL Playoffs, but have enough talent across the board to make a serious run at Super Bowl XLVII.
