The Philadelphia Eagles have had a completely disastrous season, losing 10 of their last 11 games following a 3-1 start. The losing season has all but sealed the fate of head coach Andy Reid, who was put on the hot seat by owner Jeffrey Lurie after a disappointing 8-8 season in 2011.
The team's new head coach will begin his tenure in Philadelphia with the pressure of making what will likely be the fourth overall draft pick. It was Reid who selected quarterback Donovan McNabb, an eventual six-time Pro Bowler, with the second overall pick in the 1999 draft.
But it'll take more than just a stud first-round draft pick to solve the problems for the Eagles. This is a team that has struggled to stay healthy on offense, with just left guard Evan Mathis making it through this season without missing any games due to injuries.
On defense, the Eagles have been soft and ineffective, particularly in the secondary, where the team just completed an eight-game stretch without intercepting a pass.
There are many holes on the team. The Eagles are going to need a solid draft to cure as many of this team's issues as possible.
