Post-Draft Outlook: A closer look at the Eagles' picks: Round 2/53 -- LeSean McCoy, RB, 5-11, 204, Pittsburgh...With Brian Westbrook turning 30 in September -- he was slowed by a knee injury last season -- the Eagles needed to get a back who could step in immediately and share the load with Westbrook. McCoy is a fast, explosive runner who can catch the ball out of the backfield. The biggest concern with him is his blocking; if he can't block well enough to protect the quarterback, he won't get on the field. - by The Sports Xchange

While McCoy has been cleared to play, coach Andy Reid said he likely will limit McCoy's touches. "I'm going to keep a close eye on him," he said. "It won't be a normal workload like you'd see during the season when he's fresh. He's coming off an injury. I understand that, so I'll keep a close eye on him. He'll work in as a starter and then Bryce (Brown) has some valuable experience that he's gained over the last few weeks so we'll get him in there. (Running back) Dion (Lewis), he'll be up too, so he'll have a chance if we need him there."
