2011 NFL Draft: Top 5 Positions Eagles Should Address in First Round

The first-round pick.  It's something we project months before the draft takes place and change it over and over.  However, with the 2011 NFL draft just a week away, we've honed in on our needs and we know what players we're interested in.

For the Eagles, there are two positions that jump out at me as positions that could really use a player who's ready to start on day one.  In the months leading up to the draft, I've gone back and forth as to which I think the Eagles should address earliest.

However, a few things need to be considered.  First of all, the Eagles may not even draft at the 23rd overall position in the first round.  Truthfully, I don't believe they will.  They've been movers and shakers in the first round in past years and I don't expect much change this year.

Also, with that being said, there's not even a guarantee they even make a pick in the first round.  If no one is on the board that they like, they can trade further back in the first round, or ultimately out of it.

Today, I'm going to assume that they will make a selection in the first round.  It might not necessarily be at No. 23, but somewhere in the first round.

With that in mind, here are the five positions I think the Eagles need to address during the first round.
