INDIANAPOLIS -- There are questions about what to label new coordinator Bill Davis' defense, but coaches have said that versatility will be important. As the coaches construct the scheme, the current personnel is important to keep in mind.
"I really think it's going to be an evolving thing," head coach Chip Kelly said. "It's personnel driven. You can say, 'Hey, we want to be a team that blitzes all of the time and plays man all of the time,' but can your secondary hold up all of the time to do that?"
General manager Howie Roseman said that in the past few drafts the Eagles have stressed versatility. That is why no matter what the Eagles run schematically they already have some key pieces in place. Here is a look at some of the Eagles players who were highlighted on Thursday at the NFL Scouting Combine.
"He's got an incredible skill set and he does all of those things well. I think you're looking for a big jump from him from year one to year two, a young guy, a 21-year-old."
Roseman on the safety position: "It's hard to find safeties in this league. It's hard to find them in college football. It's hard to find them in the NFL. Even the good ones, you can find weaknesses in them."
