The Philadelphia Eagles have several months to prepare their roster for the 2013 season. Chip Kelly inherits a team that went just 4-12 last year, at one point losing 11 of 12 games.
The Eagles need a franchise quarterback to play in Kelly’s offense. Michael Vick was already re-signed to a one-year deal, but he’s not the long-term solution. The offensive line was one of the worst units in the league last season, as it was decimated by injuries. The defensive line failed to generate pressure on the opposing quarterback, and the secondary needs significant changes.
The NFL draft is in fewer than two months, and that’s a golden opportunity to upgrade the roster. The Eagles have the fourth pick in the draft, which gives Kelly an excellent chance to select one of the top collegiate players in the nation. The team also has the free agency period to accrue talent at multiple positions. The trick will be improving the franchise without going all-in like the "Dream Team" signings of the 2011 season.
The following looks at each positional group and whether the Eagles will likely sign any more players.
