Every year at the NFL draft, numerous franchises are searching for instant solutions to their problems.
Not the Philadelphia Eagles, though. At least not in 2014.
Philadelphia is currently projected to return 20 of 22 starters from last season on offense and defense. Granted, multiple positions could use an upgrade, but more or less this same crew returns from the team that won 10 games and an NFC East championship in 2013.
There simply aren’t many areas on the Eagles where a rookie is going to step onto the field and beat out a veteran, at least not while the franchise holds the No. 22 pick in the draft.
That being said, there are a select few spots where it would appear that a select few prospects might be able to win a starting job in training camp. The real question is whether the Birds will actually be able to get their talons on any of these guys.
