I agree that TE and RB depth are issues, but I don't necessarily see a guy like Pettigrew as a player that the Eagles would take in the first round. If a guy isn't going to be on the field a lot, why take him? I COULD see them taking one of the RB's at #28, though.

My gut says that they go RB and OT in Round 1, with a S and TE in 2 and 3, then adding depth at OLine, WR, and DT along the way.
Yeah that what i think about Petti, he is a good all around TE, but I think thats worth a second round pick. I don't see a big drop off from him and the few guys behind him. Other than the blocking there are better receiving TE like the guy from South Carolina.

I think unless the Eagle change the philosophy about find late round rbs much is not going to change. Take a chance once in a while.

I think the Eagles could use a blocking style TE, but I also don't see a need to invest #28 overall in this draft in one. I'd much rather get a RB like Moreno than Pettigrew.

I could see them going just about every possible direction this year, but I basically agree with how you see them going, it depends on the situation though.

Realistically they could go OT/RB in round 1, and TE/S in two then three but with the Jones signing, I think S has become less of a need.
Another way I could see them go is OT/WR/RB (any order) in the first two rounds and then a TE in round three. S would be addressed in round 4, or close to it.

I really think the team drafts up a bit to get more 3rd and 4th round picks, maybe even packaging a few for a second rounder, they've got the ammo, and not many needs.

But those are the two most common scenarios I could see for the draft...

I think its most likely they draft a TE in round two or three. But one who will be a better compliment to Celek. One of the quicker, vertical threats at TE is a possibility. I really like Coffman, but him and Celek have similar styles, but I think if we could get Coffman in round three, we should do it, because he will be our starter there for a long time...

Is this still going on? I'd really like to see you guys' input on the Big Board for the Eagles at this stage in the process.

Its been dead for a while, but I've been thinking about doing my personal Big Board for a while. Once I do it, it'll probably be in the team thread, since this is dead.
