Philadelphia Eagles: Post Free Agency Complete Seven-Round Mock Draft

The Philadelphia Eagles are in a unique position heading up to the 2013 NFL draft. It’s the highest the team has selected since Andy Reid made Donovan McNabb his first-ever selection.

Chip Kelly’s team needs a quarterback to succeed, and 33-year-old Michael Vick isn’t the answer. It’s equally doubtful that Nick Foles or former Oregon quarterback Dennis Dixon is the long-term solution. Then again, Kelly could afford to upgrade the offensive line. The defense will need playmakers to fit in a 3-4, and the secondary needs a handful of players.

Trading down may be the smartest way for Kelly to approach the draft. The talent isn’t overwhelming at the top of the draft. Conceivably, the 15th pick could net a player equal or close in value to the fourth overall pick.

Regardless of what Kelly says, his first draft will be important. It’s no easy task to turn around a 4-12 team. Kelly has his work cut out for him, and drafting well is a must.
