Judge: Cornerback And O-Line Needs For Eagles

"A starting cornerback (opposite Asante Samuel) is a priority," Judge wrote.

While acknowledging that Trevard Lindley could end up being part of the solution, Judge believes the Eagles will place a priority on finding a player to fill the void at right cornerback.

Meanwhile, things along the offensive line are beginning to seem a little repetitive, according to Judge.

"Every season, it seems, the offensive ilne is a subject of debate, so why make this exception?" he wrote. Michael "Vick's ability to scramble masked one of the Eagles' biggest needs - an offensive line that can pass block, because last year's group could not."

Though Judge believes the Eagles should look to upgrade at both right tackle and right guard, he also said the Eagles have already made their most significant acquisition in the hiring of Howard Mudd to coach the line.

As for who the Eagles might target in the draft to fill some of the aforementioned voids, Judge lists five players as potential first-round targets: offensive tackle Gabe Carimi (Wisconsin), offensive tackle Derek Sherrod (Mississippi State), offensive lineman Mike Pouncey (Florida), cornerback Brandon Harris (Miami) and Muhammad Wilkerson (Temple).
