- Right Tackle: The Eagles had major issues on their offensive line. The return of Jason Peters would fix things on one side, provided he's close to 100 percent coming off an Achilles tear. Repairing the right side of the line could be solved by drafting Luke Joeckel No. 4 overall, which would allow Todd Herrmans to move to a more natural guard position.
- Cornerback: Remember how great Philadelphia's cornerbacks were considered after the team signed Nnamdi Asomugha and traded for Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie? Well, Asomugha is bound to get released because he was so brutal in 2012, while DRC, an impending free agent, lived up to his nickname, "Doesn't Really Care." The front office will have to obtain a new No. 1 cornerback to pair with Brandon Boykin, who had an impressive rookie campaign.
- Safety: Two safeties might be needed, but Colt Anderson was serviceable down the stretch, so Philadelphia might be able to get away with him as one of the starters. Nate Allen, however, was horrific this past year.
- Outside Linebacker: The Eagles struggled to find a worthy complement for DeMeco Ryans and Mychal Kendricks. Both Akeem Jordan and Jamar Chaney failed in that role.
- Defensive Tackle: Fletcher Cox had a terrific rookie campaign, but Cullen Jenkins won't be around much longer. Philadelphia could spend an early draft pick on a complement for Cox, though Antonio Dixon, who was brought back to the team late in the season, should get a chance.
- Center: The Eagles had no answer at center when Jason Kelce was lost for the season with multiple torn knee ligaments. There's no guarantee that Kelce will be at full strength next year, so adding a veteran backup would be a good idea.
- Tight End: Brent Celek had trouble with drops and separation this past season. He has regressed.
- Wide Receiver: Both DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin always seem to be injured. Some depth could be added.
- Punter: Mat McBriar ranked dead last among starters in net punting.
