Tackle a Big Position for the Eagles in the Draft

From The Sporting News:

Coach Andy Reid seldom drafts for immediate needs, so don’t expect a wide receiver or safety to be taken early.  Reid most likely is looking to draft an offensive tackle in preparation for when John Runyan, 34, and William Thomas, 33, wear down, especially becuase Winston Justice, 23, has failed to establish himself as a reliable option.

    this is my favorite team and i want the best for them. well i think that the teams gm’s should draft a wide reciever in the 1 or 2 round the go after a safty an a corner like asanta samuels or a rookie corner or a safty just some thing like that

    I think that the eagles will certainly draft an OT somewhere in the first three rounds. I agree that it is unlikely the eagles will take a receiver with a high pick. With the safety position, now that Samuel has been signed, Brown could be moved to SS and Lito to RCB, but it is also possible that the eagles would take a safety with a 3-4 round pick due to an aging Dawk.
