A week or so ago ESPN Analyst Mel Kyper, Jr.’s first mock draft had the Eagles selecting a wide receiver in round one of the 2014 draft. It was the first time I had noticed an offensive pick for the Eagles in this year’s draft. I don’t think I was the only one that was surprised and I thought it was a fluke or that maybe just maybe Kyper hadn’t done a lot of homework on the Eagles yet.

Then the Bleacher Report had the Eagles choosing a wide receiver after the Senior Bowl. That’s when my confusion turned to of course more speculation. A lot of thought of the Eagles picking a wide receiver in the first round comes from uncertainty in two of their current wide receivers entering unrestricted Free Agency. Both Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper could possibly test the open market in a few weeks. If the Eagles cannot land either one of them either by choice or price it is likely they would need another wide receiver to compliment Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson.

Given what we know, or don’t know at this point, what do you think the Eagles will do?

Here is today’s poll question.
