NFL Draft 2011: 5 Signs from Eagles' Draft That Point to Signing Nnamdi Asomugha

When the Eagles entered the NFL draft, I viewed the corner position as the biggest need for the Eagles.  This is where I felt the Eagles should direct their first-round pick.  The offensive line clearly had some holes, but I felt that they should start to be addressed in the second round.

Despite my beliefs, the Eagles decided to go with an offensive lineman in the first round.  Don't get me wrong, I do like the Danny Watkins pick.  He should come in and start from Day 1 and I think he'll be very successful.

However, the draft has been completed and I still see the same need for a starting corner that I saw before the draft took place. 

Of course, this year is different than in years past because the draft has taken place before free agency.  Every team has filled some of their needs in the draft, but they all still have needs they'll be able to attack in free agency.

So, when free agency starts, the Eagles' No. 1 priority will be finding a starting corner.  Clearly they'll be looking to heavily pursue Nnamdi Asomugha. 

If you don't believe it, here are five signs from the draft that point right to it.
