Realistic for the Eagles or not?

Barring no CBA is reached before the draft could the eagles fill their needs solely through the draft? Well we certainly hope so. If this can be done then great but there are a few options out there to explore in free agency when it remains and attack the rest through the draft. It's going to need some definite planning by the front office to see which options are viable. There is a couple of intriguing options in the free agency market that could fill a big void on our team. I believe the two biggest needs in order are LCB and RT. Not much of a surprise i know. Let me know what you think about what scenario is better and if they are realistic. In total I do have six needs for the eagles to plug their holes. LCB, RT, RG, the three others would be depending if they re-sign Mikell @ SS and Bradley @ SAM (Chaney playing MIKE) and if Jamaal Jackson can come back healthy at C. 

Step 1 Re-sign our own Mikell and Bradley. 

Step 2 Sign Gradkowski as backup to Vick, Sign Legedu Naanee WR (red zone target) , Sign Ricky or Cadillac Williams to back up McCoy. Gradkoski signing would allow the Eagles to not worry about letting Kolb go and having to plug in Kafka in case of injury to Vick. 

Scenario 1 Tyson Clabo signing

Ok so this is where the major scenarios come into play one involves signing Tyson Clabo from the Falcons as a free agent to take care of Vick's blind side. With that being done we now can take care of other needs through draft. i'm not going to guess at any trades being done cause it's way too hard to predict. 

1st round Jimmy Smith CB

2nd round Marcus Cannon RG or Rodney Hudson RG

3rd round Bruce Carter LB

4th round (1st pick) Brandon Fusco C

4th round (2nd pick) Casey Matthews LB

5th round (1st pick) Joe Lefeged SS

5th round (2nd pick) Demarcus Love G

7th round (1st pick) Alex Green RB

7th round (2nd pick) Pat Devlin QB

7th round (3rd pick) Terrance Tolliver WR

THIS would definetly fill some voids in the lineup and add some depth at other positions. 

 

Scenario 2 Signing Nnamdi Asomugha (My personal favourite scenario)

This would have to give us hands down the best cornerback tandem in the league, so with that being said we no longer would NEED to draft Jimmy Smith. 

1st Round Gabe Carimi RT ( I would absolutely love to get this guy, I think he is going to be a machine) 

then repeat the next 9 draft picks as in previous scenario. 

 

Scenario 3 NO big signings of Asomugha or Clabo

1st round Gabe Carimi RT

2nd round Ras-I Dowling CB (Probably going to have to move up to get him in the first third of second round so a trade of our second and a 4th would probably be needed to get it done)

3rd round Greg Little WR

4th round Brandon Fusco C

5th round (1st pick) Joe Lefeged SS

5th round (2nd pick) Demarcus Love RG

7th round (1st pick) Alex Green RB

7th round (2nd pick) Pat Devlin QB

7th round (3rd pick) Brandon Bair DE

 

Alright well hopefully that wasn't too much to read. Let's go Eagles!!! Please feel free to comment and let me know your thoughts on whether it is something that could be done.
