With their second selection in the NFL draft, the Eagles assessed their need at the running back position by selecting LeSean McCoy out of Pittsburgh. McCoy was the best available running back on the board so it is definitely a nice addition after missing out on the “big three” running backs that were taken in the first round. McCoy doesn’t have the exact size and power the Birds wanted but he is an explosive player with good hands.
I think it is a nice addition to the offense. He is a play maker that should definitely be able to make some plays at the professional level. It seems like the Eagles are really trying to provide Donovan the play makers he’s been asking for.
