With just one week until draft day, the Philadelphia Eagles have six picks with which to improve the team that went 10-6 and captured the NFC East title a year ago.
Chip Kelly seems to have his quarterback set for now, as second-year pro Nick Foles emerged from relative anonymity to post a ridiculous 27 touchdowns to just two interceptions. The running game is top-notch with All-Pro back LeSean McCoy, and the players on offensive line are all under contract through the 2016 season.
The defense overachieved week after week under coordinator Billy Davis, who implemented a new 3-4 scheme for the Eagles. Davis coaxed fine campaigns out of veterans such as Trent Cole, DeMeco Ryans, and Cary Williams, and he has a handful of up-and-coming players in Fletcher Cox, Cedric Thornton, Mychal Kendricks, and Brandon Boykin.
It’s likely general manager Howie Roseman targets the defensive side of the ball largely, with the exception of a much-needed pick at wide receiver. Look for the Eagles to trade away the 22nd pick, whether it is up a few spots or down to acquire more draft selections. Whether they do or don't, though, here are the 10 most likely candidates to be the Eagles' first pick in the draft.
