The Philadelphia Eagles signed two quarterbacks this off-season and they still do not have their franchise guy.

That may sound like a knock on former number one overall pick Sam Bradford and former Missouri Tiger star Chase Daniel, but it is the truth. Both of these two quarterbacks have shown nothing in the NFL to prove they will be the franchise quarterback for the Eagles going forward, so it is a position of need even after the Eagles decided to give them both contracts.

Bradford is the projected starter in 2016 for Philly even though Daniel has the connection with new Eagles head coach Doug Pederson, since they both came to Philly from the Kansas City Chiefs. Bradford once again struggled to stay healthy in 2015 and showed he will never be the elite player many thought he would be coming out of Oklahoma.

That is why the Eagles need to make sure they find their franchise guy in the 2016 NFL Draft, which is easier said than done.

Quarterback isn’t the only need for Philly, they have a huge question mark at cornerback and need another guard to match with newly acquired guard Brandon Brooks.

The Eagles also have more questions than answers at the running back position, but they seem content with Ryan Mathews as their starter in 2016.
