My N7 slowed to a crawl around the time the 4.4 update dropped.
At the time I chalked it up to update issues or something with 4.4. After talking with many N7 owners, they are not seeing the severe lag I am.
I have tried reflashing the boot and system partitions with the factory images to eliminate any possible OS issues.
Tonight I hard reset and started from scratch per the recommendations I've read elsewhere.
Upon booting up after the wipe I can immediately tell the N7 is lagging. I installed AndroBench right off the bat:
Sequential Read: 2.85 MB/s
Sequential Write: 0.29 MB/s
Random Read: 0.23 MB/s, 61.12 IOPS
Random Write: 0.0 MB/s, 2.12 IOPS

Holy crap. Wow.... I've tried to run a trim via LagFix, but nothing has improved it.
At this point I believe my internal storage is dying a slow laggy ****ty death.
There is nothing I can do here, right? I'm pretty much dicked?
Such a shame. This thing used to be amazing, and now it is unusable. Do I just trash it (and never buy another Asus product again) or what?

Interesting. those numbers are unusually low but that's not the typical way nands die. (The slowly lose capacity as the cells worn out.)
Is there any free space on your N7's /data partition?
