Eagles Team Report - Head Coach - Chip Kelly
1st Round Pick - 4th selection - 9 total picks

1. Offensive Line - The Eagles lost starting left tackle Jason Peters with an Achilles tendon injury that cost him the 2012 season. Their line struggled mightily all season and will be hard pressed to pass on one of the premier tackles in this rare class. They love LOT Eric Fisher and Lane Johnson and either could be their top pick. They could add an interior center/guard fairly early in the process with Barrett Jones highly coveted. They could draft into the center position with a prospect like Travis Frederick possibly available in the 2nd round. They also like OT Menelik Watson who could be available with their #2 pick.

2. Defensive Tackle - The Eagles have invested several high picks at this position with only Fletcher Cox and Mike Patterson playing up to their potential. Cox is a cornerstone defender here. Patterson signed with the Giants. They may address this position again in the early rounds and draft into the deepest position on defense. With their top selection, they have DT Sharrif Floyd high on their value board. They also like DT Sylvester Williams and Johnathan Hankins very much in the 2nd round.

3. Wide Receiver - The Eagles could address this area despite talent on this unit. They are disappointed in vet Jeremy Maclin. They may be tempted to select Robert Woods or Keenan Allen in the 2nd round. They also like Stedman Bailey and Aaron Dobson in the 3rd round. They could address this area later in the middle rounds and like Da’Rick Rogers and Chris Harper and they will get strong consideration. Expect a few high draft selections here with return skills considered with a prospect like Denard Robinson in the middle round area.

4. Linebacker - The Eagles signed veteran LB Connor Barwin to provide outside pass pressure. They like several of their young prospects especially #2 pick last April, Mychal Kendricks. He plays well in either pro scheme with versatility for a few positions. They have little depth behind starters and the addition of a quality early defender is critical. They may address this unit twice over the three-day draft.

5. Quarterback - The Eagles starting QB Michael Vick returns, but is on a year to year basis currently. Young Nick Foles is being hyped as the heir apparent, but is still a raw prospect. Eagles do a great job of promoting their backups with little production when given starting opportunities. They will probably invest in an early round addition like E.J. Manuel, Tyler Bray or Tyler Wilson good fits for the #3 jobs.

Insiders’ Insights
The Eagles win the Super Bowl every March and April. Unfortunately, it is played every February. They missed the playoffs the past two seasons despite being an aggressive club who moves up for certain players. This year, they have 9 picks to maneuver in the early rounds. They have clear needs along the defensive and offensive lines. They addressed their secondary in FA with a completely new veteran unit. They hope to parlay their top picks into early starters. They will focus on offensive and defensive linemen and like OT Eric Fisher, DT Sharrif Floyd and ‘Ziggy’ Ansah in the 1st round. They will probably be tempted with a top-flight receiver available with their #2 selection and like Robert Woods after he had an impressive pro day. They also like receivers Aaron Dobson and Da’Rick Rogers in the 3rd round. They may find a few highly regarded prospects like OT Menelik Watson, DE Datone Jones and DT Sylvester Williams on the board in the early 2nd round. They have done extensive work on OT Menelik Watson and will give him 2nd round consideration if they select DT Sharrif Floyd with their top pick.

1st Round Pick - OT Eric Fisher - Central Michigan - He could be the best of a great class of tackles.
Alternate Pick - DT Sharrif Floyd - Florida - Fine athlete has the skill set to be a top interior rusher.

NFL Draft 2013 Update - Wideout Robert Woods of Southern Cal - Draft Insiders' Yearbook Scouting Report -

NFL Draft 2013 - Wideout Robert Woods of USC -
Draft Insiders' Yearbook Scouting Report

Robert Woods of Southern Cal is one of the fast rising prospects in this NFL Draft class after an excellent workout at the Trojans pro day a few weeks ago. Woods has been a top 75 prospects since declaring for the NFL Draft 2013 in January, but his high level of development in the finer points of receiving has impressed clubs. His ability to play both outside and in the slot with the refined route running to be an immediate factor in three wideout sets. He has outstanding hands and the ability to adjust to the ball with keen instincts to read coverage and make adjustments in his routes and come back to the ball.

He has risen into the early second round off a fine workout and excellent career production with the possibility to being a surprise late first round selection. Several playoff teams, namely the Patriots, Packers, 49ers and Ravens have him high on their late first round/early 2nd round list. He could be the 3rd receiver off the board after Cordarrelle Patterson and Tavon Austin, both who are expected to be mid first round selections.

Robert Woods #2 - Southern Cal - 6’ 200 - Sp. 4.50
Hindu Theory: Steve Smith

Agile athletic junior wideout completed an outstanding career that ranks him with the top performers in school history. Robert is a quick savvy receiver with fine athletic ability and the development to become an NFL playmaker. He has good size, speed and agility that combined with his toughness and savvy with the ability to run the full route tree. He has good speed, hands and the pass catching abilities to start early in his pro career. He moves well with the quickness off the line to get into his routes in fine shape and the ability to cut at the break point and separate from coverage. He is an athlete who fights through the jam successfully and rarely gets pushed off his route. He has been a consistent performer who hopes to follow the long USC legacy of fine NFL receivers. His production fell with an injury to starting QB Matt Barkley late last season. He uses his angular frame well to shield off defenders and has shown the ability to go over the middle and make the tough catch. He works the sidelines well, showing the ability to extend and make the difficult catch and stay in bounds with fine footwork and hands. He has the separation speed to get deep, though rarely used in the vertical game over his late career with sophomore sensation Marquise Lee their prime deep threat. He has the ability to track the ball and make good adjustments, using his fine body control and leaping skills to catch the ball at the highest point. In this class, he is one of the more athletic and experienced wideouts who shows the skill set to be a good pro within a short time. He has quick feet and excellent jumping ability to make a play in a crowd and be a dangerous red zone player. In his route running, he gets to top speed in good shape and maintains it with the ability to change speeds and separate. He catches the ball well and is a good runner after the catch. He is an athlete who has the package that scouts seek in a starter with reliable hands, good running skills and the quick moves and acceleration to make plays. He has learned to set up corners better with experience, but needs to develop changes of speed to be up to NFL standards. He has good body control with the ability to easily adjust to the ball in flight and make the difficult catch. He has the deceptive speed to separate in the deep game with the concentration to track the ball well.
The Numbers: As a junior, he started all 13 games and caught 76 passes for 846 yards, an 11.1 average and 11 TDs in the erratic USC offense. As a sophomore, he caught 111 passes for 1292 yards, an 11.6 yard average and 15 TDs, earning 1st team Pac-12 honors. Over his career, he caught 252 passes for 2930 yards, an 11.5 yard average and 32 TDs. At the NFL Combine, he came in just over 6’ and 201 lbs. He ran 4.51 and 4.54 times with a 33.5” VL, a 9’9” BJ and did 14 reps. He had ordinary agility drills of 4.47 short shuttle and 7.15 three-cone times.
The Skinny: Athlete with the ability to become a solid possession receiver within a short time. He is a quality prospect with the skill set to become an early starter and all the physical tools necessary to become a good #2 type receiver. He has the burst of deceptive speed to get behind the secondary, though is more a tough go to intermediate receiver. Athletic receiver with the talent to be a playmaker with the skills to make a difference in the right setting. In the mold of former Trojan wideout Steve Smith in size, speed, AA and LOD. Incredibly, he has fallen off an average type 2012 production and will most likely be selected in the late 2nd day. Clubs like the Chargers, Dolphins, Jaguars and Seahawks interested.
