Resetting the Philadelphia Eagles' Draft Board
The Philadelphia Eagles have been—and might very well continue to be—very busy in free agency. As a result, their draft board is constantly evolving. We're likely to make some dramatic changes between now and April 25, but with just one under month remaining until Round 1 of the 2013 NFL Draft, we're beginning to at least get a clearer picture of what might go down when the Eagles pick fourth overall.
