Looking Ahead to Philadelphia Eagles' Biggest Needs in 2014 NFL Draft
Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Three weeks ago, it looked like the Philadelphia Eagles may be in position for a top pick in the 2014 NFL draft. The team was 3-5, mired in an awful offensive slump and unable to win a home game.

Since then, the Eagles have reeled off three consecutive victories, ended their embarrassing home losing streak and put themselves above .500 for the first time since Week 1. A division title seems imminent if Nick Foles continues his fine play and the defense does the same.

The big question this offseason will be whether Foles has played well enough to prove he can run Chip Kelly’s offense in 2014 and beyond. Considering Foles has totaled 18 touchdowns without a turnover this season, he’s making a strong case. The most surprising aspect has been Foles’ impressive ability to even run with the football, and he’s 5-1 this year in games in which he’s seen significant action.

For now, it seems likely Foles will return as the starter in ’14. That means QB is not one of the Eagles’ biggest needs, but there are a handful of other positions that will make the list.
