NFL Lockout's Impact On The Philadelphia Eagles

The Eagles offense is set with several young elite players already in place: quarterback Michael Vick, running back LeSean McCoy and wide receivers DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin. The Eagles will need to add some offensive line help, but that's not pressing. The real test for the Eagles will be the transformation of their defense. Philadelphia hired their offensive line coach, Juan Castillo, to be their defensive coordinator. Castillo hasn't coached defense in 22 years and he could really benefit from off season workouts to put his fingerprints on the defense. I expect the Eagles to go heavy on defensive players in the draft and target a few free agents when the new CBA is agreed upon (maybe even free agent cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha).
