The so called dream team became a nightmare in Philadelphia very quickly. Key pieces have been let go in Jason Babin, Nnamdi Asomugha and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. The Andy Reid era has ended and the Chip Kelly era has begun. He has changed the defense from the 4-3 that they have been running there for years to a 3-4 hybrid defense. They kept Michael Vick, though it’s just for one more year. They also have Nick Foles, but no one seems sold on him. The big changes on the team came on defense as most of the offense is still there. They also should be getting Jason Peters back from injury, which they hope will help sure up a porous line.

Luke Joeckel – The Eagles offensive line was really bad last year. Vick was running for his life and not just because he can run, but because he had to. If they can’t keep Vick from getting hit and inevitably getting hurt then they are going no where fast. Joeckel, depending on the team you are talking too, is the best or 2nd best tackle prospect in the draft this year. He could anchor down the left side of that line for years or if Peters comes back as his old self this year, Joeckel could play the right side until Peters time in Philly is done.
