They traded up with the Dolphins and now have the eighth pick in the draft.  They Eagles could use and offensive linemen but with the top two tackles in the draft in Laremy Tunsil and Ronnie Stanley off the board the Eagles must address another need. They traded running back DeMarco Murray, who didn’t really fit with the team after signing last offseason as a free agent.  They still have Ryan Mathews but they could use a primary ball carrier and there should be one sitting on the board when the Eagles pick.  Ezekiel Elliot is the top running back in the draft.  He has a great combination of size, speed and play making Eagles moving away from Chip Kelly’s uptempo offense, they will rely more on their running game to control time of possession.  Elliot can help them with that.   .
