On April 25th when Philadelphia Eagles' team representatives enter Radio City Music Hall, there is one player I want them to draft: Luke Joeckel. That, of course, is unlikely. So now lets be realistic. With the 4th pick of the 2013 NFL Draft the Eagles will hopefully select Erik Fisher, Left Tackle, Central Michigan.
Some might say Geno Smith is a good option, some might also say Star Lotulelei would be a solid pick at #4. In my opinion, Geno is a reach and Lotulelei isn't needed as much as an offensive lineman. So, that leads me to Erik Fisher.
Last season the Eagles' went in without arguably their best player: Jason Peters, who ruptured his achillies, training in the offseason. Along the way, Jason Kelce, Todd Herremans, and Danny Watkins all were lost due to injury. So now coming into this season they should go back to their strong starting 5. Right? Wrong. They are all aging (Danny Watkins as an exception but he hasn't lived up to expectations) so with Erik Fisher still sitting there with the fourth pick, why not? Todd Herremans can go back to playing guard, and Fisher can immediately be plugged in at right tackle.
With a new system, the quarterback (whomever that may be) will need some serious protection. Erik Fisher is your guy.
