AFTER SPENDING the last 4 years in the Army, including three deployments in Afghanistan totaling 20 months, Alejandro Villanueva acknowledged he still is getting adjusted to civilian life. "I've been wearing a uniform and a flag for about 8 years now; it's all I know," the 2010 West Point graduate said. "I can't remember anything that happened before going to West Point. "It's kind of different not saluting the flag in the morning and saying the [Army] Ranger's Creed. Not hanging up your military helmet at the end of the day as opposed to a football helmet.

Even though they allowed more yards in the air than any other defense in 2013, the Eagles did very little to change the core of their secondary this offseason. Free-agent safety Malcolm Jenkins was signed, in essence, to replace Patrick Chung, but the other starters or those near the top of the depth chart entering spring practices will return. A few second-tier free agents were added for competition and special teams, and the Eagles waited until the fourth and fifth rounds before selecting cornerback-safety Jaylen Watkins and safety Ed Reynolds.

As far as alarms go, the Eagles' failure to address their depth at offensive line and inside linebacker in last week's NFL draft hardly rang a bell. They return all five players from one the league's best lines and both starting inside linebackers. And although they had opportunities to upgrade at each position this offseason, the Eagles were confident about their returners. They saw the need to inject some young talent into the pipeline, but they didn't. "Dagger," general manager Howie Roseman said about not drafting any offensive linemen. "Dagger in the heart.

THE WAY the relationship has been presented to us is that Eagles coach Chip Kelly tells Howie Roseman what he needs, and the general manager goes out and gets it for him. We have seen this spring that it isn't quite that cut-and-dried. Kelly, Roseman joked recently, set an NFL record in March and April for attending college pro days. The coach explained that he gleans important stuff from watching the workouts, and that he likes to talk to position coaches, friends, and so forth about the prospects.

SO, CHIP. How 'bout that draft? "Honestly, I have no idea," the Eagles coach said Saturday when asked if he was stoked about his seven new draft picks. Kelly was just being honest. Which is actually kind of a refreshing thing from a football coach. The fact is, despite the hundreds of thousands of dollars the Eagles have spent on college scouting over the last 12 months, despite the obscene number of Marriott points general manager Howie Roseman and his personnel staff have racked up during the long evaluation process, it's still anybody's guess whether Marcus Smith, Jordan Matthews, Josh Huff, Jaylen Watkins, Taylor Hart, Ed Reynolds and Beau Allen are going to be any good in their new profession.

MAYBE MARCUS Smith will be everything the Eagles hope he will be. Maybe he will become the difference-making pass-rusher of their dreams and put the fear of God into opposing offensive tackles and be a perennial double-digit sack guy. Maybe. Right now, though, he's just a late-first-round project who put up great college sack numbers last season (14 1/2) in an inferior conference (American Athletic Conference) and went a lot higher in the draft than a good many personnel people around the NFL thought he would.

Howie Roseman had already traded down once in the first round, and he needed to determine if he would do it again. The Eagles sat at No. 26, and the Kansas City Chiefs took a pass rusher at No 23. Roseman, the Eagles' general manager, wanted a pass rusher and sensed that there would be a run on them early in the second round. The Eagles wanted Louisville's Marcus Smith, who was the highest pass rusher remaining on their board. Smith was not one of the six players the Eagles originally targeted for the No. 22 overall pick, but the Eagles believed he was the best player left at that point and they thought they could take him at No. 26. Roseman did not think Smith would last much longer, so the team felt comfortable submitting Smith as the pick.

When the top pick in the 2014 NFL draft still remains a mystery despite a player of Jadeveon Clowney's caliber being there for the Houston Texans' taking, you can be certain no one - let alone Chip Kelly and Howie Roseman - knows whom the Eagles will select with the 22d overall pick in the first round Thursday night. Far too many variables are at play, including the possibility of trading up or down, for anyone to get a grasp on the Eagles' plans. But that hasn't stopped the team's followers from guessing whom Kelly will take in his second NFL draft.

Fourth of a series of looks at positions the Eagles might target in this week's NFL draft. What they have: Eagles beat writers talked to general manager Howie Roseman for nearly an hour last week, and the thing that came through most clearly was that Roseman feels the Malcolm Jenkins signing was the Eagles; big safety move of the offseason. Roseman also touted 2013 rookie Earl Wolff and even Nate Allen, the disappointing 2010 second-rounder who was brought back on a 1-year deal.

THE 2012 NFL draft represented "the worst 3 days of my life," Eagles running back Chris Polk recalled yesterday. But Polk's crushing disappointment - waiting around, ending up undrafted after being projected to go in the first three rounds - presented a big opportunity for the Eagles, who aggressively courted Polk to sign with them as a free agent. Two years later, four players the Eagles drafted in 2012 and 2013 are gone, but their sturdy 5-11, 222-pound former Washington star is still here, looking to continue to move up the depth chart.
