PHILADELPHIA - Chip Kelly has to choose between another playmaker for his dynamic offence or a player to bolster a defence 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 offence that set team records for points (442), total net yards (6,676), touchdowns (53), and gross yards passing (4,406).

The defence 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.
