LB depends on whether we keep Bradham or trade Kendricks. If both go, it's the priority.

I'd actually lean towards WR at the moment since Smith is a likely cap casualty. Roseman's comments about WRs not being ready to play means that the pick would get a year to adjust to the NFL and we can evaluate Agholor, Hollins and possibly Gibson.

I don't think we need to address OT unless we cut/trade Peters. Maybe next year however when we have picks on day 2.

IMO the only way that you truly get better is BPA regardless of position (except QB). Free Agency is for filling holes. When you start drafting for need you start getting in trouble and start reaching for players. Remember all those junk safeties that we drafted that all shit the bed after Dawk left?

I hear you but the Safety that looked the worst has been starting for NE.

N Allen was serviceable even though not what one would expect for a 2nd rounder.

It is always a balance between need and BPA. For example, They are not going to draft a DT in round 1 considering the contracts that are already there. They are likely loosing a former 7th rounder in B Allen. They can use one of their 4th or 5th round picks for a run stuffing backup DT.

I bet they hold onto Kendricks until they know that Bradham is signed. I'm confident he's coming back. Both sides very likely want to get a deal. It is just a matter of finding a number that is fair. The Eagles will have the cap $ from cutting Kendricks after the Bradham deal is done.

Biggest issue is settling the Bradham issue.

I assume they'll draft at least one LB. I would not be surprised if it is in round 2 or 3 (picks from Nick Foles trade or trading down in round 1. They'll need depth in the event of another Hicks injury.

Then deciding on Big V's role. If he is the future starting L OT then they just need to use a mid round pick on someone to be backup OT. If Big V is only a backup, then I assume they'll use their first pick on an OT.

I assume they'll need two TEs. One might be the converted WR, Billy Brown on the practice squad. I could see them drafting a blocking TE in the middle rounds. If they go with two young guys, they will miss the veterans at that position.

I assume they are confident enough in the combo of Hollins, Agholor and Gibson at #2 WR but would not be surprised to see them draft another WR at some point. My impression is that T Smith's physical size as a blocker in the running game won't be easy to replace by the trio of young WRs.

I assume Nick Foles is good as gone.

I guess that we'll just have to agree to disagree on this one Joe. The Eagles are so high on Sudfeld that Nick could easily be gone so we're on the same page there anyway. It's BPA all the way for me. I'm sure there is a little wiggle room there but I think that you have to stay true to your board. Who was that safety that Andy reached for in the second round and everybody else had him way back and he really sucked? I couldn't find him at all when I looked at past rosters. He had a weird first name like Jaquan I think.

BPA is absolutely the way to stay out of draft trouble. They could very well draft a DT at 32, or a RB, or any position.
