    To bad Bailey is not coming out early.

    Weatherspoon would be nice.

      Weatherspoon or a DE like Graham, Morgan, Hardy for me.

      I would add kicker to our list of needs as well as I love the guy, but Akers time is up. I hope we use our last pick on a guy like Tiffin. Our needs I would say OLB, RT, LE, CB, S, RB, WR, TE, K Like Sniper said most of it is just depth though. We have a **** load of picks this year which is great considering the depth of this draft especially with all the underclassmen that will be coming out. We have a 1st, two 2nds, two 3rds, a 4th, two 5ths and a 6th.

        I kind of hope we trade out of this draft and into next years, but you never want to be looking ahead.

        This year's draft is probably as bad as 05 I think.

          I am 100% sure the Eagles are going to go for a corner in the first round.

          Reason 1: The Eagles are actively looking for depth

          Actually, they have been looking at CBs for a while. RT @J_Robison: @caplannfl is Eagles interest in CB because of an injury?
          #Eagles tried to claim CB Jack Williams so it's obvious that they are looking for some depth there.
          #Eagles had former #Lions 7th rounder in 2007 CB Ramzee Robinson for a workout this week.
          And they've already worked out Marcus McCauly this season.

          2. The Eagles follow a pattern when drafting.
          -They've drafted a QB, DT, WR, CB, OG, DT, DT (that is McNabb through Bunkley) and just recently the process has started over, they drafted Kevin Kolb with their first pick, then they drafted Trevor Laws with their first pick and then they drafted Jeremy Maclin with their first round draft pick. So what's up next? CB.

          3. The need is there
          -Ellis Hobbs is as good as gone next season, Joselio Hanson and Sheldon Brown are aging and the Eagles are always troubled by bigger receivers.

          4. Andy Reid values CBs highly
          -The Eagles drafted Lito Sheppard and Sheldon Brown when both Troy Vincent and Bobby Taylor were still on the team, that was in 2002 and the Eagles let both Vincent and Taylor go after the 2003 season after Brown and Sheppard had been pros for two seasons, at the time of their release Vincent was 32 and Taylor was 30, guess what? Sheldon Brown is rapidly approaching the time of release, he is 30 and he turns 31 in March, he has a contract dispute and his contract expires in 2013 which means when his contract expires he'll be 33 and if the Eagles drafted a CB in the 2010 draft the CB would have 3 years of experience if he doesn't overtake him in 2012 when Brown is 32. The time for a youth movement at CB is rapidly approaching and Andy Reid loves to spend money on corners, just look at where he drafted Lito (1st round), Sheldon Brown (2nd round) and he spent 57 million on Asante Samuel.

          So... who figures to be around when the Eagles draft?
          Donovan Warren- Sniper probably knows more than me, but my impression of Warren is that he is a great man to man corner who can stick with his man but he gets exposed because Michigan can't get pressure. Warren has 4 interceptions on the season and seems to be a very athletic corner who is fluid and flexible and perhaps his best asset is his size at 6' 200 pounds with 4.4 speed. He has the physical abilities of a shut down corner with his long, lean frame, his speed and his long arms. But on those interceptions, Warren has shown a nice ability to jump routes, read the QB and has shown nice instincts. I really like Warren and I feel like he is the second best corner in this class but he falls behind others because of the defense he is on.


          Kyle Wilson- The guy just makes plays at the CB spot and the PR spot. Kyle tackles (35 tackles, 26 unassisted), break up passes, intercepts (15 defended passes, five interceptions, and 10 breakups), and is a superb special teams player—returning punts (33 punt returns, 470 yards, for an average of 14.2 yards per return) scoring touchdowns on 3 returns last season. So far in 2009 he hasn't really been tested but he still has 2 interceptions, one of which he returned for a touchdown and he is averaging 10 yards a punt return. Wes Bunting of the National Football Post said this of Wilson:
          Possesses the flexibility to sit into his back-pedal and is very smooth when asked to turn and get down the field. Lacks ideal footwork in his drop and will open his hips up a bit early. However, he showcases impressive balance and demonstrates the first step to quickly redirect and drive on the play. Exhibits good fluidity in the hips and has the ability to get out of his breaks and cleanly change directions on all areas of the field.
          I really think he would make a very good CB in the Eagles scheme, plus he has dreadlocks and that makes him even more awesome.

          And guys I like but I think are more second round prospects are:

          Javier Arenas- Arenas is a junkyard scrap dog. He flows to the ball and loves to hit. Plays way bigger then he is, and uses good strength on bump coverage. One of the best blitzing corners I’ve seen, Arenas has an amazing first step and seems to always find the QB when he’s blitzing. Arenas is very athletic which helps when he is covering men that have the height advantage on him. He will fight for the ball as well, watching the Ole Miss game I saw him wrestle the ball away from a receiver in the air. Arenas brings in versatility as a return specialist, and the type of player you want on your d. A scrappy player that just doesn’t like to lose, and does what it takes to win. I constantly try to watch Alabama games because I love their defense and the player that always sticks out in the secondary is Arenas, he does it all, he isn't afraid to hit anyone and like I said earlier he is just a scrappy guy who is a genuine tough guy. He really reminds me of Antoine Winefield and I see a little bit of Sheldon Brown in him. The only problem with Arenas is his size which is less than ideal at about 5'9" but he plays MUCH bigger than that.

          Syd'Quan Thompson- He is another smaller player who plays huge, he and Arenas are really similar in play styles. Thompson is a big time tackler at the CB spot as well and like Arenas he is not afraid to stick his nose in the pile and get dirty. Thompson is really physical in coverage and he will do whatever it takes to get someone off their routes, again like Arenas. One of the larger differences between the two is Thompson has better hands as he had a nice year last year intercepting passes. Also like Arenas, Thompson is an accomplished returner, racking up 344 punt return yards and a 70-yard TD last season. Thompson is another corner who is small but has a ton of fight in him and I really like that.

          I used to like Patrick Robinson but after seeing him get toasted every game I watch, I've decided he is a high upside athlete more than he is a first round corner prospect right now. Also I am really interested in learning more about USF corner Jerome Murphy but I can't find any game tape, games on TV nor can I even find any credible scout talking about him. Also the UCLA corner Alterraun Verner is going to IMO be the second coming of Asante Samuel, Verner is a ballhawk who breaks on passes really well and I think that if Bill Belichek gets his hands on him he can turn him into the second coming of Asante Samuel or the third coming of Ty Law.

            My dream draft pick is Rolando McClain when I watch Bama games (Ive seen 4) he is always making the tackle or getting pressure up the middle when blitzing. I remember his freshman season when Bama was playing Colorado in a bowl game on the first drive he got an interception broke his had came back with a cast on in the second half and finished with double digit tackles.

            Thanks Eaglez.Fan

              I wish McClain would be on the board but I highly doubt it, IMO he is top 10 material.

                Like I mentioned before, I would be thrilled if the eagles could swing a trade to land Eric Berry, he is my favorite prospect period in recent memory.

                      Is LE really the answer? I think we get a solid amount of pressure from there, but granted they are aging.

                      I think the problem comes from our DT's. They're monsters at stopping run and they occasionally push the pocket, but I want to see a more consistent pass rush from our DT's.

                      Supposedly this is a deep CB class, so I doubt we get one 1st round.

                      If Gocong doesnt resign, we may see Brandon Spikes as an Eagle.

                            And push Bradley back to the strong side?

                            If we're going to go LB, I want...

                            1. Sergio Kindle. Would allow Bradley to stay in the middle.
                            1a. Rolando McClain. If you want a MLB to push Bradley to SLB, he's the guy.

                              I was thinking more of Spikes playing SLB. He has the blitzing experience asked for in our LB's and can flat out play football. Granted he has some character concerns, but I could see him successful here.

                              I want Rolando McClain above all else too, but I simply dont see it happening. Sean Weatherspoon probably wont reach us either, and WLB is not our key concern with the addition of Will Witherspoon and Akeem Jordan's play.

                                Bradley at SAM and Spikes at MIKE makes more sense.
