A new twist on an old topic


So if you are new to the Eagles, you probably don't understand this topic. But we have one of those situations where we just might have too much of a good thing, again.

It comes down to this. Peters, Mathis, Kelce, Watkins, Herremans. One of these names are not like the others... give up?

What do we do with Herremans?

Todd has made the jump for us one more time to a new position, this time anchoring the blind side for southpaw slinging Michael Vick. Clearly Todd is a plug and play anywhere in that offensive line. But, do we look for a RT in this years draft?

What about Jamaal Jackson, who is rumored to be seeking his outright release? winston justice? This year the line has been playing better than I can remember for a very long time....

Do we screw with the chemistry? Did Mudd get everyone he wanted, or is this a line of patchwork pieces that sufficed until he can pave the road with a new set of faces and a full offseason to work with?

If Mudd can convert Kelce into a name who is mentioned in pro bowl discussions from a late round draft pick, do we just want to turn over the 5th-7th rounds to this guy and hope he finds a few more diamonds in the rough?

So let's face some cold hard facts:

Cap means cheaper is better for the overall team. Cheaper means you need to look into the later rounds in the draft and avoid marquis named free agents. Mudd has demonstrated the ability to get serious mileage out of late round draft choices (Kelce) and out of favor free agents (Mathis).

So, do we take the guys on our roster and trade them for late round picks? Do we go to a team like Dallas with our Jamaal Jackson, and work a 4th round pick out of them for the guy, knowing we face him twice a year? Do we pop a pick on a RT, knowing we need a RT to backup Herreman if we plug him anywhere into our line next year?

Interesting situation we face this draft. I am not ashamed to say that, as long as we have Mudd, I am excited for our late round draft picks as well.
