The Monday night matchup between the Philadelphia Eagles and New Orleans Saints looked like one of the best of the season when the NFL schedule was announced, but both teams have had a bumpy ride so far. Each team now stands at 3-5, and each could end up picking in the top half of the first round when the April draft rolls around.

There likely will be plenty of turnover on both rosters and perhaps both coaching staffs before draft weekend, which will no doubt affect their draft boards. However, each team's current needs are apparent, and it's a fun exercise to assess how they might improve via the 2013 draft.
