Heavy lifting may be over

With holes to fill defensively and tjust two scheduled picks - Nos. 54 and 85 - the Eagles will be rolling up their sleeves on the second day of the draft that begins at 6 p.m.

There is a chunk of talent remaining after the first round, a group that includes defensive end Da'Quan Bowers, linebacker Akeem Ayers, quarterbacks Andy Dalton and Ryan Mallet, cornerbacks Brandon Harris and Aaron Williams, and defensive end Ben Ijalana of Villanova.

The Eagles might have to wait to upgrade to make their splash in free agency. It's possible the lockout could be back Monday as reports are surfacing the NFL owners could receive an administrative stay while the Eighth Circuit court in Minnesota considers their appeal of the injunction temporarily ending the lockout.
