The draft is almost here, and even if the lockout has made you depressed, you have to be excited.
We’ve speculated for months about what the Eagles will do in the draft, and we will soon find out. They have plenty of needs that they have to fill and haven’t been able to with the lockout preventing free agency.
The draft will serve as their first opportunity to start filling these needs.
The Eagles currently have 10 selections: one in the first round, one in the second, one in the third, two in the fourth, two in the fifth, and three in the seventh.
They may end up taking 10 players, but they could easily end up taking more or less.
During the draft, the Eagles will definitely make a number of trades. However, these trades are impossible to predict.
So, for the time being, I’m going to look at the players I believe the Eagles would select if they ended up using all the picks they’re scheduled to right now.
