Aging Offensive Line Could See Some Justice

There are likely going to be four players from USC chosen in the first round of the NFL Draft later this month. Two of them won't fall anywhere near the Eagles, one seems to be sinking below the Eagles and the other could be a good fit on the offensive line.

Let's face it, the Eagles offensive line isn't getting any younger. The Eagles tried to make it younger by going after LeCharles Bentley and considering a play on Steve Hutchinson, but neither panned out. They even considered letting veteran Jon Runyan walk, even though he insisted he wanted to be an Eagle and at an affordable price. Instead, there's Hank Fraley, Tra Thomas and Runyan.

There is help coming from Jamaal Jackson at center and Todd Herremans may be moving from tackle to guard. Still, a little more youth wouldn't hurt.

Enter Winston Justice.

The 6' 6", 319 pounder is in Philadelphia for an official visit with the Eagles. Justice is entering the draft after his junior season and the Eagles may have an interest in drafting him when their pick rolls around at number 14. At USC, Justice was playing at right tackle, but could move to left tackle in the pros.

By draft time, the Eagles will have had five other offensive linemen in either for a workout or visit. Many of them aren't first-rounders, but could interest the Eagles in lower rounds and serve as somewhat of a project as a replacement down the road.
