With the 22nd Pick, The Philadelphia Eagles Select …

I have no idea.  I’m stumped actually, although, I am almost certain it’ll be an offensive player. Philadelphia Eagles Head Coach Chip Kelly seems to covet offensive players. Last season, his dangerous offensive system exploded on the NFL scene, leaving doubters to eat their heated words with a cold spoon. Obviously, the surprise release of wide receiver DeSean Jackson apparently hinders the likelihood for the Philadelphia Eagles to repeat as a top two offensive juggernaut. Perhaps Jackson’s release was expedited because there is a specific player Chip is certain he can grab in the draft that will replace the former’s talent. Who really knows but the Eagles front office? Meanwhile, speculation is rampant. Safety, pass rusher, wide receiver, corner. Believe it or not, I even seen quarterback being mentioned!

Draft day is a few weeks away, and I feel the Eagles are in a great position to add some core talent. My opinion is of the few that believe the Eagles do not have any glaring needs – a position that absolutely must be upgraded by next season in order to contend. I feel that from this point on, whatever the Eagles add through the draft is extra. This team can win now. The greatest strength may not reside in the talent of the team, more so in the talented scheme of the head coach. Whomever Chip grab is going to see big numbers his first year, giving this player plays on the offensive side. If the Eagles does in fact go defensive early in the draft, and really snag a productive talent to help anchor the defense, that will only make winning the division again even more a probability. Hopefully whatever player is selected help propel the Eagles into the playoffs. Here’s hoping. I’m not going to pretend I know who we’ll grab, but like everyone else, I am anxiously awaiting that first pick to reveal himself.
