The moment has finally arrived. Even though there are still no official football games for more than four months, the NFL draft is here and that counts for something.
For the Philadelphia Eagles, April's draft is extremely important. First of all, it's going to be the first time that new head coach Chip Kelly gets to work his magic in the draft. Second, the Eagles need to do everything they can to turn their franchise around from the disaster in 2012, where the team lost 11 of its final 12 games, effectively ending the Andy Reid era after 14 seasons.
The Eagles have nine picks in this draft: one in each of the first five rounds, plus four in the seventh round.
