Don't Waste the 4th


The Eagles unfortunate 4-12 season left them with the consolation of the fourth overall pick. This pick, if used wisely can prove to be very valuable. In order to make this pick valuable the Eagles should do one of two things: draft a player with Wow Factor or trade down. The fourth pick is a pick that should be used on somebody with "Wow Factor." After watching film on all the supposed candidates for the Eagles' pick, I've surmised that there is only one true candidate with "Wow Factor" and that is Eric Fisher. Fisher is a absolute beast. He is 6 foot 7, 305 lbs, and great intangibles. When matched up with the best of the best at the Senior Bowl, he proved that although he played at Central Michigan, he could still play with the best. Fisher also played against Michigan State, and handled them with ease. After watching the new 30 for 30 documentary, "From Elway to Marino", I learned a very valuable lesson about drafting for need instead of drafting the BPA. The Pittsburgh Steelers drafted Gabe Rivera instead of Marino because they had a QB for the short term, but Rivera got into a car accident, and never played again, and Bradshaw only had three more years after the draft. I think if Fisher isn't there, which he probably won't be, they should trade away their pick to someone that wants to gamble on Lane Johnson, who I don't see being a superstar, like I see Fisher being. There is little difference between Loutelelei and Jonathan Hankins, little difference between Dion Jordan and Barkevious Mingo, so if we trade down, and get some more picks for it, we'll be in better shape, than if we waste our precious pick on someone undeserving of going in the top 5.
