RD: I don't think they'll sign Asomugha. Too expensive. They'll sign a CB, but a cheaper option. I'm guessing either Taylor or Joseph.
SD: Kevin Kolb seems to be on his way out of town. Where do you see him landing?
RD: I think Kolb will wind up in Arizona.
SD: There have been arguments that the Eagles biggest area of need is in the secondary while others say it is on the defensive line. Where do you think the Eagles have the biggest hole?
RD: I think CB is the #1 need with a DE or DT close behind.
SD: What do you think we can expect from the Juan Castillo defense?
RD: Castillo is an unknown. I think it was an unnecessary gamble on Reid's part but let's see how it works out.
SD: Do you think they are legitimate Super Bowl contenders this year?
RD: I think they can be a playoff team this year, but I do not put them in the first tier of Super Bowl contenders. Too many questions on defense.
RD: The McCoy-Osi thing is much ado about nothing. A lot of noise, that's all.
SD: Danny Watkins has been hyped as a guy who can step in and play right away, where do you see him fitting in on the Eagles O-line? Also, would have gone a different direction with the pick?
RD: I like Watkins. I'd start him at LG and move Herremans to RT replacing Justice, but it doesn't look like the Eagles will do that. They'll put Watkins at RG next to Justice. He is a good player and should do fine allowing for the usual rookie learning curve.
SD: What are your expectations/predictions for the Eagles this year?
RD: It would be silly to try to predict a record or finish now. We don't know what they'll do in free agency, etc. Let's see how they look around Labor Day.
Well, with the new collective bargaining agreement looming, some of these predicted moves are not far away. It is almost time for training camp. This is an exciting time of the year. A special thanks again to Ray Didinger for taking the time to talk with us.
