It's one of the reasons they are very particular with their own FA's. They are always reloading and Andy loves taking Offensive Lineman.
I'm also pretty surprised by this, at least in round 1. When you look at Philly's needs a big tackle who can stop the run seem like it would be number 1, and when you take into account their starters Patterson and Jenkins both are over 30, Philly's history with players over 30, and the fact that Brockers is still on the board it seems like a no brainer.
Still and Worthy arguably carry 1st round grades but would be a reach here. You could make an argument for Safety but with Barron off the board that's out and lastly you could argue weakside LB but again at 15 that would be a reach. I guess if any team has put themselves in position to go 100% BPA in round 1 it would be the Eagles but unless they really don't like Brockers I have troubles seeing it.
