Chip Kelly could go a handful of different ways with his first draft pick as the Philadelphia Eagles’ head coach. The offensive line needs an upgrade, which means Luke Joeckel or Eric Fisher is an intriguing possibility.
The defense was one of the NFL’s worst units in 2012, notably the pass rush. That means Dion Jordan, Sharrif Floyd or Star Lotulelei would each be a viable option. All three would be Day 1 starters for the defense. And cornerback Dee Milliner is another player that would vastly improve a position of need.
There’s also the chance the Eagles may trade down. The talent pool at pick 10 isn’t significantly different than that at pick four. Acquiring an extra draft pick in a trade down would allow Kelly an opportunity to improve his roster with even more draft selections.
The following breaks down the likelihood of Kelly drafting each of the top players entering the draft by percentages.
