Jonathan Martin - OT
Scouting Report
Stanford University
Tackle was a need for the Eagles before Jason Peters tore his Achilles this week; now it's a necessity. Todd Herremans is solid at right tackle protecting Michael Vick's blindside, but with Peters likely out for the 2012 season the Eagles need to find a replacement at left tackle. Martin fits the bill as a similar athlete to Peters and was able to protect Andrew Luck at Stanford so there's no reason to think he wouldn't be able to do the same for Vick in Philadelphia. The Eagles signed DeMeco Ryans but still need more depth in their front seven so they could take a look at a defensive tackle or linebacker with this selection as well.

What do you guys think of the picks we gave your team?

A few surprise picks, I know. But the NFL Draft is always a surprise. Overall thoughts?
The eagles pick makes sense, especially in light of Peter's injury.

As far as Dallas goes, I'm not sure that the situation you described wouldn't have Jerry trading down. He loves to trade around in the draft, but hasn't done it in a few years. He's about due.

We have other needs than a one year fill in until Peters is healthy.

Peters will be 31 years old and coming off an injury some players never fully recover from, while on the tail end of a sixty million dollar contract. First round rookies are a lot cheaper than they used to be, and will be in place for the next four years.

Peters is a damn good tackle, but the number crunchers in your front office have to be considering this.
