Maybe Jones or Moore if they're lucky.

It's tricky because as of right now, they're in position to pick in the top 10. Honestly with the talent the team has, they aren't as bad they're draft spot. If they score big here and pick up an elite player they most likely will make noise next season and will have a great young core. I see Philly absolutely going with LT and taking Joekel though. Same with the Rams and Lewan. Call me crazy, but maybe the Chargers make the jump ahead of Philly?
Lotuleilei is probably the best defensive player in the draft. Jarvis Jones has spinal steriosis IIRC, which is what ended McNeill's career.

Gosh I hope so. Barkley being picked pushes a player we could use down the board. Although Barkley might free fall on draft day in the end.

Was just going by what most drafts were going by. If Joekel doesn't go to Philly (remember an injury to the achilles is pretty tough, especially for linemen) the Rams most likely will. The guy is too good for any team to pass up with even a concern at LT.

Edit: also Philly is using a RG at RT. Tackle help is definitely a consideration for them.

They won't take a tackle high with Peters coming back, and the tackle is Todd Heremanns who is actually a decent player.

The mass majority of their fans and mocks are saying otherwise though. Everyone was blaming Vick at first, then they saw what Foles can do, and it was even worse.

There's a really strong chance they're going OT.

Most teams don't pick a RT high.....

If they had Jason Peters still, the line wouldn't be nearly as bad. Their starting C is also out.

Depending on where we/they are picking they might be a good team to swap picks with if Joekel or Lewan are still there where they are picking and they are targeting the Bama Guard

What about Aaron Murray?

Allegedly he's considering it and could go pretty high in this weak class

No, Murray is trash.

They will have a decent idea of how strong Peters is going to be once he's back. If they feel they can rely on him, then they ignore LT because he's the best in the business.

Todd Herremans is a converted guard, but he's a heck of a right tackle so who cares that he played guard first? If he's good, then he's good. Demetress Bell, King Dunlap, and whoever is playing center have been the main issues. Without picking anyone, Philly will have Jason Peters, Todd Herremans, and Jason Kelce replacing them in 2013.

Also consider that Dominique Rogers-Cromartie is a FA and Nnamdi will be cut (because he has stunk and is owed 15M next season). Corner is their biggest need.

Also, how Foles performed does not prove that the OL deserves all the blame in Philly. He's a rookie 3rd round pick... he'd struggle regardless.
