10 Names Every Philadelphia Eagles Fan Should Know Ahead of 2014 NFL Draft

The NFL draft is nearing, which means the Philadelphia Eagles have less than one month to decide which direction the team will go with its initial picks. Predicting what general manager Howie Roseman will do with the team's first-round selection is nearly impossible, considering the Philadelphia Eagles could target a handful of different positions at the 22nd pick.

The recent release of three-time Pro Bowler DeSean Jackson suggests a need at receiver, although a deep class at the position may have Roseman and Chip Kelly waiting until the middle rounds before selecting a replacement.

Aside from the receiver position, the offense appears to be all but set, meaning the team's first-round pick will likely be a defensive player. The secondary could certainly use an upgrade, although if there's a versatile lineman for a three-man front or a pass-rushing outside linebacker, he may take priority.

Because of scheme fit, likely availability and team need, the following 10 players are names worth knowing heading up to draft weekend.

Names like Jadeveon Clowney and Teddy Bridgewater won't be on here; neither will likely be available when the Eagles select, and the latter certainly wouldn't fill a position of need. Rather, these are players who could be reasonable targets in the first round or players who may be added as depth picks in the later rounds.
