What Will The Philadelphia Eagles Draft Philosophy Be in 2014?





The Philadelphia Eagles go into the 2014 NFL Draft with a variety of needs. DeSean Jackson‘s departure opens up a gaping hole at the wide receiver position. There are also a plethora of holes on the defensive side of the ball and places at which the Eagles could use an injection of youth.

Eagles general manager Howie Roseman and head coach Chip Kelly have been consistent with one theme. They will select the very best player available regardless of need. The Eagles have gotten in trouble in the past trying to force picks at positions of need thinking they were one piece or one player away from getting over the top.

It very often ended in complete and utter failure. Danny Watkins and Brandon Graham are pretty glaring examples. Since 2012 they have changed their philosophy and it has worked wonders.

The Eagles simply hit a home run in 2012. Guys like Brandon Boykin, Mychal Kendricks, Fletcher Cox, and Nick Foles all look like emerging stars. The 2013 class also looks promising with guys like Zach Ertz and Lane Johnson having very productive rookie seasons.

The streamlined process seems to be a real success. The real question is: which way do the Eagles go in 2014? This is said to be the deepest wide receiver draft class in recent memory. The Eagles will certainly want to take advantage of that in some of the earlier rounds especially with the losses of Jackson and veteran Jason Avant.

There are also some intriguing secondary prospects, and a few freak athletes that would be perfect in the Eagles’ 3-4 defensive scheme. Expect the Eagles to stay true to their word. They will go with the best player available regardless of need or side of the ball.
