BOCA RATON, Fla. - Doug Pederson talked Monday about needing to do more to fix the Eagles' offensive line. Howie Roseman, perhaps more experienced in the keep-them-guessing ethos of the NFL draft, managed to turn a question about the running-back position into a hint that the Birds wouldn't necessarily spurn a chance to draft a runner - presumably, Ohio State's Ezekiel Elliott - with their first pick, eighth overall. We're still five weeks away from the start of the draft, but as Roseman noted when he took a break from the NFL meetings at the Boca Raton Resort to speak to reporters, the selection process is about to take center stage.

BOCA RATON, Fla. - Howie Roseman's visit to the NFL annual meetings signals a change on the team's offseason schedule. After a month focusing on free agency, the Eagles will shift attention to the draft. "Finishing off free agency, this is always the point where you transition toward the draft," Roseman said Monday between meetings. "It's kind of the natural breaking point, really kicking into high gear in terms of draft preparation. " Since March 1, the Eagles re-signed three players, traded four and signed six from other teams.

BOCA RATON, Fla. - Could the Eagles draft Ezekiel Elliott with the eighth pick overall in April's draft? Howie Roseman wants the rest of the NFL to think so, or so it would seem. The Eagles vice president of football operations never mentioned the Ohio State product by name on Monday, but it was clear he was referencing Elliott when asked about the value of selecting a running back early in the draft. "There's this narrative that you can get running backs in the fifth, sixth, seventh round and undrafted free agency," Roseman said at the league meetings.

BOCA RATON, Fla. - Jeffrey Lurie, Howie Roseman, and Doug Pederson rushed through the lobby of the Boca Raton Resort & Club minutes before 6 p.m. Sunday, when the NFL's annual league meetings began. For Pederson, the Eagles' rookie head coach, it's his first such trip to one of the major events on the league's offseason calendar. Lurie and Roseman are veterans here, although they attend this year's iteration under different circumstances than recent years. Team president Don Smolenski is also in attendance.

The Eagles were the only team in the NFL that didn't have an "outside" receiver with more than 50 targeted passes last season. Most teams had two. Some had three. The Eagles, for various reasons, didn't have a consistent threat outside the numbers or downfield. Only two of four regulars from last season remain on the roster. Riley Cooper was released last month and Miles Austin was mercifully cut with five games left in 2015. Nelson Agholor and Josh Huff return, as expected, but neither was drafted by new coach Doug Pederson or returning general manager Howie Roseman, per se, so their futures aren't as clear as if Chip Kelly had stayed.

YOU KNOW the old saying: You can never be too rich, or have too many capable quarterbacks. Howie Roseman opened the vault and gave rookie head coach Doug Pederson his two preferred passers. Sam Bradford agreed to a 2-year, $36 million contract. Chase Daniel, the backup in Kansas City when Pederson was the coordinator, signed for 3 years and $21 million. With that sort of investment in two healthy veterans, the Eagles should just sign, oh, Josh Freeman and be done with it. Right?

In Howie Roseman's telling, the biggest trade of the NFL offseason so far came about because of a couple of well-timed takeout orders in Indianapolis. At the NFL combine last month, the hotel suite for the Eagles' player-personnel staff and coaches was just two doors down from the Miami Dolphins'. Dinnertime rolled around. "There are a couple of places in Indy that are really good," Roseman, the Eagles' executive vice president of football operations, said Thursday. "So we were trying each other's food.

REPORTERS OFTEN ask athletes coming to Philadelphia what they know about the city. Cheesesteaks, Rocky Balboa, the tribulations visited upon Santa at a long-ago Eagles game - these tend to be among the responses. Brandon Brooks volunteered that this is the site of the nation's first bank. Indeed, it is, established by Alexander Hamilton in 1791, still standing right there on 3rd Street, a few blocks down from the Liberty Bell, if Brandon would like to visit, now that he's here for five years and $40 million, $21 million guaranteed, to start at right guard for the Eagles.

Rodney McLeod walked up to the podium wearing a crisp white shirt buttoned to the top, Steve Urkel-style, and a jacket with a polka dot handkerchief peaking out of the breast. His torso barely cleared the lectern, while coach Doug Pederson, who spoke just moments before, towered over the stand. The new Eagles safety isn't known for his size - he's listed as 5-foot-10, 195 pounds - but he looked even smaller in person. He answered questions eloquently, spoke in measured tones, and smiled a lot. McLeod didn't appear to be anywhere near the intimidator the Eagles have lacked in the secondary for nearly a decade.

Howie Roseman said the Eagles' decision to trade Byron Maxwell, Kiko Alonso, and DeMarco Murray was "about value," which came from improving draft position and opening cap space to allocate elsewhere. In the trade of Maxwell and Alonso to Miami, Roseman's objective was obtaining a top 10 pick. The Eagles moved from No. 13 to No. 8. "We felt there were 10 players that really stood out to us," Roseman said. "Picking 13th, we felt if we were in position to get one of those top 10 guys, there was tremendous value in that.
