IN THE entire Delaware Valley, Allen Barbre, Matt Tobin and Andrew Gardner might have been the three guys happiest with the Eagles' 2015 draft, when it wrapped up Saturday evening. Barbre is the journeyman guard who was penciled in as Todd Herremans' replacement when the team's longest-serving offensive lineman was sent packing in February. Barbre will turn 31 next month. Tobin and Gardner are the top backups who were pressed into service last season, when injuries decimated the o-line.

The myopia of the moment suggests that Chip Kelly has done irrevocable damage to the Eagles and their offense, for both the near and distant futures, by failing to select at least one offensive lineman in this year's NFL draft. Over two years now, the Eagles have sat through 14 rounds and drafted not a single tackle, guard, or center, and for a team with three projected starters who will be 30 or older this season, this strategy would at first glance seem a dereliction of Kelly's duties as coach and player-personnel czar.

When Todd Herremans was released by the Eagles in February, he went on local radio and said that Chip Kelly valued the quarterback position and the line the most on offense. "Other than that I think that he feels like . . . the system will take care of it," Herremans said. But since that statement Kelly has done virtually nothing to address an offensive line that is aging and lacking in depth. Despite the obvious need, the Eagles didn't select a single lineman in the NFL draft for the second year in a row. Two weeks ago, when he was asked to name the deepest positions in the draft, Eagles vice president of player personnel Ed Marynowitz said the offensive line first, followed by wide receiver and defensive back.

Sam Bradford is still the Eagles' presumptive starting quarterback. It is worth reminding everyone of that fact in the wake of what happened Thursday night - that whirlwind of speculation and source-speak before the NFL draft that indicated just how much Chip Kelly wanted Marcus Mariota and how far he was willing to go to get him. Two first-round picks, a third-round pick, Fletcher Cox, Brandon Boykin, Mychal Kendricks, and more? As reported by the NFL Network, that offer was perhaps the most generous that Kelly and the Eagles made to the Tennessee Titans, in the hope that the Titans would hand over the No. 2 pick and the opportunity to select Kelly's ideal quarterback.

The first draft pick Chip Kelly made as the Eagles head coach was an offensive lineman, Lane Johnson. He has not picked an offensive lineman since. The Eagles have three projected starters who will be 31 or older next season. The draft this week could be a good time for the Eagles to add at least one young lineman they could pencil in as a future starter. If the Eagles stay at No. 20 in the first round Thursday, they will be in the range for some of the draft's top offensive tackles.

THE EAGLES yesterday announced the retirement of 65-year-old Harold Carmichael, who lost his player development role early in the Chip Kelly regime and since has been working in fan relations. The team said Carmichael, an Eagles Hall of Fame receiver, will continue to work informally as an ambassador for the team. "I have so many memories. I grew up as a football player in this city and with this team and it was special," Carmichael, whose 579 catches for 8,978 yards remain franchise records, told the Eagles' website.

The Eagles will release veteran offensive lineman Todd Herremans, according to league sources. Herremans had been one of the team's two longest-tenured players after spending the first 10 years of his career in Philadelphia. The move gives the Eagles more salary-cap space, but it also leaves them with a vacancy at right guard. The team did not make any announcement Thursday. Herremans, 32, started 124 of his 127 games in an Eagles uniform. He missed 16 games due to injury during the last two seasons.

MOBILE, Ala. - Bill Davis, the defensive coordinator who kept trying to single-cover star receivers with Bradley Fletcher as the Eagles slipped from the playoff picture, remains secure in his post. But the late meltdown of the Birds' secondary has claimed some victims. Last week, former Pro Bowl corner Todd Lyght, who'd assisted Eagles defensive backs coach John Lovett the past two seasons, left to coach Vanderbilt's corners. Yesterday the Eagles announced that Lovett is now a pro scout.

EAGLES running back LeSean McCoy, who suffered an apparently minor knee injury in the season finale against the Giants, will not participate in the Jan. 25 Pro Bowl in Arizona, an NFL source confirmed. Also, wideout Jeremy Maclin and long snapper Jon Dorenbos were added. Maclin, a third alternate, replaces Denver's Demaryius Thomas. Dorenbos was added as a "need" player by coach Jason Garrett. Eagles named earlier were guard Evan Mathis, tackle Jason Peters, linebacker Connor Barwin, center Jason Kelce and returner Darren Sproles.

Eagles guard Evan Mathis, originally a second alternate, was named to the Pro Bowl yesterday when Philly's own Jahri Evans, of the Saints, turned down his invitation, citing injury. Mathis will play in the game for the second year in a row. He joins linebacker Connor Barwin, center Jason Kelce, returner Darren Sproles, running back LeSean McCoy and left tackle Jason Peters . . . NFL.com reported that Eagles assistant defensive backs coach Todd Lyght is leaving to become d-backs coach at Vanderbilt.
