Luke Joeckel is the top OL this year, but he doesn't look like a top-tier franchise tackle. Good, but I wouldn't use a top-5 pick on him regardless of how much the Eagles need OL help.
Manti Te'o is obviously the top LB in the draft. He's probably the best overall player in the draft. Wouldn't be a bad choice, but MLB is one of the few things the Eagles don't need.
Damontre Moore is the best 4-3 DE in the draft. You could always use more pass-rushers and Babin and Cole are probably both gone so it would make some sense.
Star Lotulelei is the top DT and Overall DL in the draft. He's huge (6'4", 325), strong, and very fast for his size. He'd probably be my target for the Eagles in the top-5. Him and Cox playing inside would be a force for years.
If Te'o is there when the Eagles draft, they have to take him. They can worry about what to do with Ryans later. I would think Te'o would play outside until they're done with Ryans, which isn't too far in the future either way.
