The NFL Draft has come and gone, and now football fans are looking forward to the 2014 NFL season. In 2013 head coach Chip Kelly led the Philadelphia Eagles as the conquered the NFC East. It began week one when Chip Kelly’s new fast paced offense exploded onto the scene as the Eagles absolutely dominated the highly touted Washington Redskins and Redskins star quarterback Robert Griffin III. Now everyone knows who Chip Kelly is and what he does, but that doesn’t mean Kelly doesn’t still have a few tricks up his sleeve. The key to Kelly’s bag of tricks is that it relies on his offensive players, guys that fit and understand his system and know what to do and how to do it fast. After cutting former Eagles and current Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson, it seemed that Chip Kelly was taking away some of his own fire power. This power in the form of an explosive and incredibly fast wide receiver that cannot be caught from behind by just about any defensive player in the league. Since Jackson is now a Redskin not only do the Eagles not have him, but they have to play him twice. The Eagles tried to make up for this plus their other holes through the NFL draft, but so did the other teams in the NFC East. I am going to analyze the picks by all the teams in the NFC East and then decide if the Eagles did enough to stay on top.
