whether its randle el pitts wr via trade or some unknown college wr the game has moved from "you have to run the ball to be successful" to " spread the field wide and deep " think speed when we draft this year even at rb get a clone for westbrook and pay the little bucks to the between the tackle runner

greg lewis will be our speed guy in the slot next year with freddie most likely wanting a trade if he isnt starting and pinkston being the 4th stringer, if freddie leaves id like a possesion type receiver whos big and strong to be a good target in the endzone, lewis and TO can stretch the field and so can westbrook, we already have speed and randle el is only a slot guy and i think only does so well because he plays with plax and hines.

If Mitchell leaves then they have to get someone to compliment TO. Clayton if he's available in the draft, but the eagles should think bigger. Maybe get James Thrash back. If all else fails:
Roddy White, Chris Henry and Troy Williamson are your best bets.

Todd Pinkston complements TO pretty well. The Eagles have plenty of speed at WR, I see WR as a day 2 need at best. After Clayton, Edwards and Williams there is no one spectacular that could do anything at all this upcoming season.

owens is our possession and end zone wideout with only average to good speed.pinkston is strickly a sideline speed guy.mitchell is a bum.who lacks talent.lewis shows promise at both slot and wide.its time for a weapon like randle el ( yes he is better suited for the slot) or a speed guy either through trade or the draft

Or we could look at the fact that Donnie passed for almost 4000 yards this year and realise we donít need anymore help at wideout!! Itís not as major a concern as people are making it out to be. The development of L.J. Smith is far more important. We need him to be as reliable as Lewis was and hopefully be a bit better after he makes the catch. The only need real need we have is at DT if Simon goes, and even then itís just so we can stick to our rotation policy. Our linebackers(trotter will be resigned) are not world beaters but they are decent. If Crowder falls to us then Iíd take him but we can wait for a project type guy in later rounds. The draft should be all about taking the best available player. We have no holes to fill as such.
