We're four weeks away from the 10 year anniversary of Andy Reid's very first draft pick.  The selection of quarterback Donovan McNabb with the No. 2 overall pick is one that set a foundation for the franchise that still exists to this day.

Regardless of the jeers the Eagles received for overlooking gunja connoisseur Ricky Williams, picking McNabb was by far the right choice.

Whether you like it or not, McNabb continues to be the face of the Philadelphia's beloved football team.  While he has yet to achieve the ultimate goal, he's still the most successful signal caller this team has had since Norm Van Brocklin.

As a gift for the 10 year anniversary, the Eagles have received an abundance of draft picks to continue their quest for the Vince Lombardi trophy. 

Currently they have 12 draft picks, but to predict how the Eagles will pick players with those picks is just scratching the surface.  Mock drafts never take into consideration trade possibilities.

Don't be surprised if you hear as many announcements about the Eagles making trades as you hear who they've selected.  There's still a chance that more veterans will be shipped to another team. 

Be prepared for at least one guy you think is a great fit will be overlooked.  Four weeks from now, the Eagles front office will be highly active. Stay tuned...
