Adding more weapons to the Philadelphia Eagles offense could be the right move

Western Michigan wideout D’Wayne Eskridge won’t excite anyone with his size. He’s five-foot-nine and tips the scales at 190 pounds. He should still have fans cheering with his playing style. A big play waiting to happen, the rising star has all of the tools that are necessary to take over a game. He is a threat to score anytime he touches the ball and can be used all over the offense.

The Philadelphia Eagles could use a talent like Eskridge to help boost their passing game.

Duke cornerback Mark Gilbert could boost the Philadelphia Eagles asap

This year’s draft could be historic talent-wise. Anytime you have a player with Mark Gilbert’s skillset sitting here in the sixth round, you have to be impressed. Blessed with good size (he’s six-foot-one and 175 pounds), sneaky athletic range, and the football IQ to be a star, Gilbert has flown under the radar up until now, but don’t let that fool you, he is a stud.

If the Eagles can land Gilbert this late in the draft, they should consider it a huge get.

Chase Behrndt has the versatility to be a star for the Philadelphia Eagles.

At six-foot-four and 315-pounds West Virginia offensive lineman Chase Behrndt has good size to go along with the football IQ of a standout prospect. He can play both the guard and center positions. He could also fill in at tackle if needed.

That isn’t all either. He can also contribute on special teams which adds even more value to having him on the roster.
