Franchise left tackles don't just pop up in free agency often. They're either old or a huge injury risk going forward if they ever do hit the market.
You need to get better up front. It's not a sexy pick, but it's a winning one.
Eagles OL when healthy is solid. The DL and defense is the biggest issue. Given how weak this QB class is Foles could fetch a first rd pick. Especially with Matt Barkley shoulder woes.
