10 Players Philadelphia Eagles Should Target on Day 2

The Philadelphia Eagles grabbed offensive tackle Lane Johnson with the fourth overall selection in the NFL draft, making the Oklahoma lineman the first player Chip Kelly has drafted.

Johnson has the supreme athleticism required to succeed in Kelly’s offense. He’s a former collegiate quarterback, tight end and defensive end who played left tackle his final two years as a Sooner. Johnson posted a ridiculous 4.72 40-yard dash, which makes him a player made in the mold of Jason Peters.

His addition allows the Eagles to move Todd Herremans inside to his natural guard position while former first-round bust Danny Watkins can move to the bench. Johnson solidifies an offensive line that was a weak spot in 2012, but Kelly still has eight picks with which he can further improve the roster.

The Eagles were 4-12 last year, losing 11 of their final 12 games. The defense was the downfall of the campaign, as Philadelphia surrendered at least 20 points in its final eight contests. Kelly has the 35th pick, the 67th pick, a fourth- and fifth-round pick, and then four late seventh-round picks. The following 10 players would all be of substantial help, but they would need to be obtained during rounds two or three.
