QB: This position of course is the million dollar question for the Eagles this offseason. Michael Vick is likely to be cut, although there remains a possibility that he could take a pay cut to stay with the team. Personally, I had seen about enough of Michael Vick sometime around the middle of October, and don’t think he’s any kind of answer going forward. That leaves 2nd year QB Nick Foles and veteran Trent Edwards, who is signed through this upcoming season. Foles showed glimpses of being a legitimate starter in the NFL last season, but not so much that if a good QB was available, you’d feel comfortable passing him up.
In a similar way that the Redskins were able to simultaneously groom star rookie QB Robert Griffin III and backup rookie QB Kirk Cousins, the Eagles and their new coaching regime are in the position to groom Foles and a rookie QB draft pick. The Eagles currently have 8 draft picks, and are likely to get a 9th when the compensatory picks are announced at the end of March. In my opinion, it’s a near certainty that one of those 9 picks will be a QB.
RB/FB: Good to go.
WR: Hang in there with me on this one. I have a lot to say on the WR position.
