“Let me rephrase that — I know they want to come up. The Eagles are in a very small club, teams that want to jump up from low in the first round to the upper half. I believe Philly wants one of the two safeties in the draft — Eric Berry of Tennessee or Earl Thomas of Texas. With the 24th, 35th, 55th and 70th picks, the Eagles absolutely have the ammo to move up.”
King also said the Eagles draft partners might be the Jaguars or the Miami Dolphins.¬† He says the Jacksonville GM loves additional picks and the Dolphins have only one pick, number 12 in the first round,¬† in the top 70.
To me this is a confirmation but it’s not news because it’s very obvious.
As I said in the previous posting, the Eagles will try to take care of their safety needs in the first round and their cornerback needs in the second round.
I think Derrick Morgan is in the mix, as well as center Maurkice Pouncey.
