A lot of posts about offseason wish-lists and the like. I'm going to try to take a slightly different spin and see if I can divine what moves I think will happen this offseason and why.
Just sticking to some of the more meaningful ones.
Free Agent Acquisitions - Needs (OG, CB, OLB, SS, NT, OT, ILB, FB, WR)
NFL Draft - Needs (OG, NT, ILB, FB, WR)
1. Jonathan Hankins - NT - Ohio State. There are three NTs worthy of being drafted in the first, which is extremely rare. Phili always went for the OL and DL early and often, so a guard is also very possible here. But I think the value at NT is better and there will be a push to address defense after doing nothing last year.
3. Alvin Bailey - OG - Arkansas. Big bodied guard and sticks with the theme of building from the trenches.
4. Marcus Davis - WR - VaTech. Notice a theme here? We need to get bigger. WR is not the most glaring weakness, but I think everyone is aware of Wayne's age. If Hilton does play a role in Pep's offense they will need a bigger target opposite him to move the chains. At 6' 4" 232 Davis can go over the middle and set blocks on the outside.
6. Lonnie Pryor - FB - Florida St. I think we may see a FB come from FA, but if not we will address it somewhere. Hamilton's offense utilizes a FB frequently to plow running lanes. Pryor is s strong blocker and can carry the ball in a pinch.
