    Agreed, though Jackson is showing promise, there are no gaurantees at this point. What we need is a good TE and a good #1 WR for this offense to be deadly.
    Good thing the Eagles have alot of picks next year, there are some good fits in the draft.

    Michael Crabtree, WR, Texas Tech [6-3, 212]
    Brian Robiskie, WR, Ohio St. [6-3, 197]

    Jermaine Gresham, TE, Oklahoma [6-6, 250]
    Brandon Pettigrew, Oklahoma State [6-5, 260]
    Travis Beckum, Wisconsin [6-4, 224]
    Darius Hill, Ball State [6-6, 235]
    Cornelius Ingram, Florida [6-4, 228]
    Chase Coffman, Missouri [6-6, 245]

    WRs are more difficult to find because the Eagles need a reciever who is big, runs good routes, catches the ball well, and gets YAC. Those guys aren't the easiest to find.

    TE's for the Eagles offense is much easier to find, because the Eagles don't need an all around TE, you can just have a pass catching specialist and the Eagles would be fine. Like it said in the article, blocking is an added bonus. Practically any TE can fit the system.

      I don't think Eagles have the Slot WR, even though Desean Jackson might seem to be perfect fit, I have yet to seem him preform in a game or catch a ball at NFL level. He is training with Rice so maybe it can happen
      Slot: The newer versions of the West Coast offense often use a third receiver placed in the slot instead of a second tight end. Slot receivers are generally smaller, speedier players that have trouble beating press coverage
      .

      That basically is DeSean Jackson's scouting report. I completely forgot that he is training with the best WCO WR ever: Jerry Rice.

        Unfortunatley, there are some positions like S and OT that may be of bigger need next year, but thees a whole seaon to go, so we'll see.

            We don't really need a receiver in the 1st round next year, its almost a lock we go O-Line at one pick, and DE or S with the other. And you don't HAVE to be a big wideout to be effective in the WCO, look at Kevin Curtis. Its basically about running precise routes for the WR's however you are right that big WR's are preferred.

              True, though big WRs are better off, but that is true for almost any system.

                Kevin Curtis is the flanker receiver
                Flanker: This position gives the receiver more freedom, since he doesn't line up on the line of scrimmage and can go in motion to the weak side of the field. An illegal formation penalty will be called if there is not a wideout on the weak side of the play, whereas the tight end on the power side is on the line of scrimmage. The flanker is not technically reserved for a speedy receiver, but it does give smaller, speedier receivers more room to work.
                not split end.

                Split End: This position is generally reserved for a more possession-type receiver that has a good release off the line, because the split end must line up on the line of scrimmage on the weak side of the field.
                Also, the Eagles are stacked at DE, so why would we draft one.

                  Yeah, that had me wondering too, DE is one of our most solid positions.
