What’s the next step now for the Eagles?¬† They have the defensive end they wanted, but they still must secure a safety and a corner.¬† A center or guard would also be a good acquisition, but that will likely be done tomorrow.
The second and third rounds take place today and the Eagles have the fifth pick in the second round, #37, as well as the 23rd pick today, which is #55.
In a lot of ways, today is just as important as yesterday.¬† They need to fill some holes with some good football players.¬† I think a safety will be the pick at number #37.
USC safety Taylor Mays is still on the board if they want him.¬† I would rather see them grab USF’s Nate Allen, who looks like a better cover guy.¬† I would have no problem with them picking Mays but they must have a plan for how they’re going to utilize his skills and give him the best chance to succeed.
Concerning the cornerback position, there are a number who I think could come in here and help such as: Virginia’s Chris Cook, South Florida’s Jerome Murphy, Oklahoma State’s Perrish Cox, and Akwasi Owusu-Ansah from Indiana University of PA’s.
There are four linebackers I could see them being interested in: Texas’ Sergio Kindle, TCU’s Daryl Washington and Penn State’s Sean Lee and Navorro Bowman who are all highly thought of.
I know they will wake up today wondering if they should have held onto those two third round picks.
What do you want to see them do today?
