Offense or defense? Kelly and Eagles have to pick

Chip Kelly has to choose between another playmaker for his dynamic offense or a player to bolster a defense that needs the help.

The Philadelphia Eagles went from worst to first in the NFC East in Kelly's first season as coach thanks to an offense that set team records for points (442), total net yards (6,676), touchdowns (53), and gross yards passing (4,406).

The defense improved drastically after a poor first month, but struggled in a first-round playoff loss to New Orleans. So the Eagles should be leaning toward adding an impact defensive player with the 22nd overall pick in the NFL draft.
