Linebackers was never one of Andy Reid’s specialties, so to Eagles fans, it must be refreshing to see the front office make linebacker a position of focus.
Chip Kelly is going to be running a two back system in Philadelphia with LeSean McCoy and Bryce Brown, and with only one other running back on the roster, Chris Polk, it is easy to see that the Eagles will be drafting one during this years NFL Draft.
