Sooner or later, the Eagles are going to see some changes to the offensive line since some of their key players such as Jason Kelce and Jason Peters are getting up there in age.

But knowing Philadelphia, fans should feel confident in the team preparing well in advance to make sure the unit remains in the best shape possible to protect Carson Wentz for years to come.

When it comes to offensive lineman who helped make a stronger case for themselves at the combine, Colton McKivitz deserves to be part of the conversation.

The size and length of McKivitz makes it seem like the West Virginia product could be the perfect young lineman for Philadelphia to develop into a larger role down the road when the time does come for certain individuals part of the offensive line to call it a career.

What makes a pick like this even more intriguing for the Eagles is the fact they could afford to be patient with McKivitz if needed since Philadelphia doesn’t need him to start right away.

A young player like McKivitz doesn’t like to hear these kinds of things, but at least when it comes to the long run, this would be worth it for both parties involved.
