Now that the Eagles season is all but assured of falling short of the playoffs, the loyal Philly fanbase can start focusing on their Super Bowl, the 2012 NFL Draft. Last year's draft yielded the Eagles a solid but not great starting guard, a promising strong safety who couldn't beat out Jarrad Page or Kurt Coleman in his rookie campaign and a running back turned cornerback who can't crack a spot on the defense.
Any Reid and company elected to select players with more potential down the road rather then take guys that can make an instant impact. The Eagles loaded up with talented impact players in free agency but only a couple of those players ended up being a positive impact on the team.
Now the Eagles are loaded with athletes and playmakers but not many players who can catch the football or make a tackle. The talent is there but the football IQ is not. Next April's draft will be more about getting high quality football players that are fundamentally sound. Lucky for the Eagles the draft is loaded with sure-tackling linebackers and receivers with great hands.
