With all the hype from Donovan McNabb finally brushing over, we can now turn our attention to this year's NFL Draft.

The Philadelphia Eagles hold five out of the first 87 picks in this year's draft. My question is, will Andy Reid and his associates lean towards an upgrade at this year's draft?

Philadelphia has been known to unleash phenomenal, out of the park trades during draft day.

I'm speculating that they may trade their first round picks of 2010 and 2011 for a top-seven pick overall this year. I know that this may seem totally bewildered but considering what has happened this offseason, anything is possible.

The Eagles scouts have been paying close attention to Tennessee safety Eric Berry. With Eric Berry projected to be a top 10 pick, the Eagles have been monitoring his progress throughout this Spring.

Now the second question is, who will give up their top first round pick?

The team that comes to mind is the Seattle Seahawks.

The Seahawks are looking towards the future, and by doing so, I believe their first area of concern would be quarterback. The Eagles hold the 24th overall pick in this year's draft.

If Seattle made this trade, they would be able to land Clausen or Tebow and have another first round pick in 2011.

Regardless, this is just an idea but not that farfetched. Don't be surprised if you see Philadelphia make a package deal containing high draft picks to land Eric Berry!
