With Andy Reid’s draft history, it’s hard to believe that he won’t draft an offensive lineman.

I’m not disputing whether or not he will, I’d be surprised if he didn’t, but I don’t think it’s necessary. Especially in the first round.

With the departure of Tra Thomas to Jacksonville and Jon Runyan still floating around in free agency, the Eagles would appear to have some huge holes.

However, after Eagles fans get over the emotional loss of two fan favorites, the line doesn’t look to be in bad shape.

The Eagles have essentially six starting-caliber linemen on their roster right now in Todd Herremans, Jamaal Jackson, Shawn and Stacy Andrews, Max Jean-Gilles, and Nick Cole, with four other young talented linemen in King Dunlap, Mike Gibson, and Mike McGlynn who are all busting at the seams with potential.

So Andy, if you’re reading, here’s my 2009 Philadelphia Eagles’ offensive line.
