Should the Eagles move up to draft a WR?

There’s no secret that the Eagles need a top-tier WR to pair with their franchise QB. This upcoming NFL draft should be the answer to their prayers. Alshon Jeffery will be entering his age 30 season and will be coming off Lisfranc surgery from December. DeSean Jackson is 33 years old and only played 5 quarters last year after having sports hernia surgery. Nelson Agholor is gone after a struggle filled tenure with the birds. Their second round pick from a year ago, JJ Arcega-Whiteside, couldn’t get on the field early in the season, and when he did he struggled to catch the ball. The lone bright spot came from Greg Ward. Ward, a former college QB from Houston, was an immediate spark to the Eagles offense. After being called up from the practice squad for good in November, Ward became a reliable option for Wentz and the offense.

Getting Jackson back healthy, along with the growth of Arcega-Whiteside and Ward, shouldn’t result in the Eagles passing on a WR early in the draft.  However, with a lot of WR talent, the Eagles need to be careful of not only who they select, but when they select them. They have 4 picks between rounds 2 and 4, which could enable them to move up in the first for one of the top three receivers.

With the weeks leading up to the draft, I’m going to assess some wide receivers the Eagles should look at. I will be breaking them down based on the round I see them being selected. 

Missing on first round picks can set your franchise back years. There are three wide receivers that are clear-cut 1st round talents have number 1 WR ability. 

Jerry Jeudy

Jerry Jeudy, whom many believe to be the top WR in the draft, is expected to be drafted early on. If that’s the case, then the Eagles would most likely need to move into the top 12 to land the Alabama star. Jeudy is a 6’1” WR that is ready to step in and be a number one receiver. He has the size and speed to step into the Eagles offense right away and command full attention. His explosive get off and route running ability allows him to gain separation which helps him make big plays down the field. Jeudy displays excellent hands and has sound footwork breaking in and out of cuts. He uses his quick feet to beat press man coverage and his elite quickness to find the open spots against zone.

Fit in the Eagles offense

Currently constructed, Jeudy would slide right in as the Eagles number one receiver on the outside. I could see the Eagles moving Jeudy all around the field. When Alshon comes back from his injury, Jeudy would be an ideal number two wide receiver in this offense. Fully healthy Jeffery and Jeudy outside, with Jackson, Ward, and Arcega-Whiteside getting time in the slots, would help the offense drastically. However without Jeffrey in the lineup, Jeudy would be the perfect option on the outside and could draw a high volume of targets. Jeudy is the best option for Wentz and the Eagles, but his projection is anywhere from picks 5 to 12 in the draft, meaning the Eagles need to move up at least 9 spots. 

Likelihood to be drafted by the Eagles: 20%

 

CeeDee Lamb

CeeDee Lamb is a 6′ 2.5″ wide receiver out of Oklahoma that, along with Jeudy, is week 1 ready for the NFL. His strong hands, reliability, and IQ when running routes separates himself from the rest of the field. During Lamb’s last three collegiate seasons he amassed 173 receptions for 3,292 yards and 32 touchdowns. His breakaway speed and elusiveness during his run after the catch makes him a threat to score every time he lines up. In Lincoln Riley’s offense at Oklahoma, Lamb was asked to do it all. He ran all the routes, both in the slot and on the outside, and he has shown to be willing to block in the run game. 

Fit in the Eagles Offense

The one receiver that is probably most NFL ready between Jeudy, Lamb, and Ruggs III, is Lamb. Coming from an air it out attack at Oklahoma, Lamb caught passes from Baker Mayfield, Kyler Murray, and Jalen Hurts. Stepping into Doug Pederson’s pass heavy offense with Carson Wentz at the helm should be a seamless transition for the wide receiver. Like Jeudy, he’d likely start as an outside receiver and become the number two when Alshon returns. Putting him in the same offense as Ertz and Goedert and Jackson, Lamb should have plenty of room to catch passes in space and rack up the yards after the catch. There is a chance he goes ahead of Jeudy, but he most likely will be taken after him in the 12 to 16 range. Yes the Eagles would have to move up, but it shouldn’t be too far. 

Likelihood to be drafted by the Eagles: 30%

Henry Ruggs III

Henry Ruggs III is the most intriguing of the top three projected receivers in this draft. Leading up to the combine, Ruggs was viewed as the third best in the group. After a stellar 40 yard dash time of 4.27, Ruggs became the star of the combine. Ruggs by far is the best athlete among the group. Ruggs does an excellent job at attacking the football and making plays against physical receivers. Saying Ruggs was overshadowed by Jeudy isn’t fair, but Ruggs didn’t garner enough recognition during his time at Alabama. At 5’11”, Ruggs may not have the size of an outside receiver, but he certainly has the potential. He has the perfect combination of speed, hands, catch radius, and RAC ability to become and elite NFL slot receiver, something that could immediately lift the Eagles offense. 

Fit in the Eagles offense

After DeSean Jackson got hurt early in the year, the Eagles desperately lacked speed. Drafting Ruggs would seemingly open up the offense and allow the other weapons to thrive as well. While there is a chance Ruggs is limited to a slot receiver role during his rookie season, he would have an excellent mentor in Jackson. Putting him in space in the middle of the field against a teams slot corner or safety, would give the Birds a significant advantage. Early in his career, we’ve seen that Carson Wentz loves throwing the deep ball and getting chunk plays. By pairing Ruggs with Jackson, the Eagles should get back to attacking the down the field vertically.

Likelihood to be drafted by the Eagles: 45%

While all three wide receivers are NFL ready, it’s still too soon to say who the clear-cut number one is in the draft. RIght now Jeudy is the most complete, and Lamb has the package to make the most immediate impact. Ruggs on the other hand may not be the best amongst the three now, but has all the skills and potential to be the best in the draft over time.

They only trade up to get someone they believe to be special at a premium position WR, DB, OL or DL….they trade back if they feel there is no one that deserves to be the 21 pick.

Absolutely Not
I think Cee Dee Lambe is the Best WR Prospect and will be the first WR Taken within the Top 10-12 Selections
For the Eagles to move up that far will cost their 2nd Round Pick and at least another Mid-Round Pick (4th Round) and maybe even a 2021 Draft Pick so it’s too much to give up when there is such a deep WR Class as this Years Draft Class which a few will be on TD Board when they Select at #21 if they choose
I believe the Top 2 CB’s (Okudah & Henderson)
will also be gone by the early teens
I hope they can Package a 4th Round Pick and let’s say a R Douglas or S Jones and move up to an early 3rd Round Pick (Top 75 or so) to give them more Selections in the Top 100
I do believe the Panthers at #7 are open for trading Down for additional Picks but I believe that’s too far to move up for a WR when there is such a Deep Class this Draft
If they want to move up 2-3-4 Spots to get their Player and it costs one of their 4th Round Selections, and a Player, then I’m ok with this ..

Too many moving parts p.man. They have turned over close to 10% of their roster already. It happens each year. Figure 5-6 of the drafted players make the 53 that’s another 10% …you get back a couple of injured players maybe a trade here or there for established player and you are looking at a bunch of new faces. Something that happens in 90% of the teams each year. You take the BPA at every point in draft. The needs will always be there no matter what… they filled needs at WR last year and by week 5 it was their biggest need even tho they had already filled it..draft best players at premium positions they will fill needs.

I also think Jeudy will fall in the Draft and am not sold on speedster Ruggs being an impact Player at the NFL Leve, despite his world class speed.. These Alabama WR’s and DB’s & Skills Players always scare me a little as NFL Prospects as they play on Great Teams with the Best OL/DL’s that they just overmatch most College opponents from a physical standpoint and opposing Defenses have to honor Bama’s strong running game so often that they just just whooped on the back end by these flying Bama Receiver’s off Play action

Closer it gets to the Draft the more I think they may go with a Versatile OL at earlier than expected who can play OT/Guard and even Center.. With Seumalo settling in nicely at LG , the Eagles need to prepare for life after Center Jason Kelce ..
Matt Pryor played very well at Guard late last season while filling in for Brooks, but was not so sharp or consistent when playing OT during the Summer Camps/Preseason Games, and Jordan Malatai has been in the system for 3 Years and will likely be out of Football this Fall so the Eagles need to sure up that Swing OT Position in case of Injury to LJ or to Dillard,
Both LJ and Brooks both have missed games the last 2 Seasons with injuries,illness and with all the Games they’ve played over the Years, it may be something the Eagles just have to deal with as they age..
So adding at least 1 highly rated OL in the first 3 Rounds is probably a smart way to go

A couple interesting OL Prospects

OT at #21 or later in the 1st Round if Eagles Trade Down –
OT Josh Jones – U of Houston ( 6-5 320lbs)
OT Ezra Cleveland – Boise State (6-6 311lbs)

2nd Round OL Prospects (Interior OL)

Prince Tega Wanogho – Auburn (6-5 310lbs)
Lloyd Crushenberry III – LSU (6-3 312lbs)
Cesar Ruiz – Michigan (6-3 307lbs)
Netane Muti – Fresno St (6-3 315lbs)
Tyler Biadasz – Wisconsin (6-4 315lbs)

3rd & 4th Round Round Prospects (Inside and Outside OL)
Matt Hennessey – Temple (6-4 307lbs)
Jonah Jackson – Ohio State (6-4 310lbs)
Matt Peart – U Conn (6-6 – 318lbs)
Jack Driscoll – Auburn (6-5 306lbs)
Solomon Kindley – Georgia (6-3 330lbs)
Ben Bartch – St John’s (6-6 310lbs)
Alex Taylor – SC State (6-8 310lbs)

Well as i’ve said all along and ( you’ve stupidly said draft need) they will draft the BPA at a valuable position of need- you’ve now identified at least 3 positions of need CB, WR and OL– so you are getting close to having a correct post on Gcobb. –I’ve seen players from these positions projected 18-27: OL, WR, DB, LB, DL– havent seen any TE’s or RBs I think in that spot but you can pretty much guarantee it will be one of the positions i mentioned BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO DRAFT THE BPA.

paul, i’ve been doing some reading on how a team creates their player board for draft- interesting stuff- google it but in short:
scouts report talent from their regions, its narrowed down, players who score high but are not a scheme fit are eliminated (like the eagles would eliminate a talented 34 OLB)- players are then given a value say 1-100- and arranged in top down order- if players tie at a numeric value they are then put in order from need– but if a player scores highest and is still on the board you pick him regardless of position- exception may be QB – so if the eagles have 3 players scored 75 for example they would put them in what they deem their biggest need ranked 1 etc- interesting stuff-
also due to being at home full time- if you look at football reference they rank players after the draft on their value and where they should have been drafted etc- interesting for you draft wonks-
cliff was so wrong on Kelce and lane johnson- you were wrong on trading Kelce- oh and cliff remains wrong on Graham

My take on Kelce is that he’s a great Center in a spread offense where he can get out on many screens, bubble routes and out to the 2nd level, Jet sweeps, and outside edge rushes which the Eagles ran quite a bit under Chip Kelly.. I really thought after Kelly was fired that the Eagles would hire a Head Coach and have an Offense which was more of a Power Rushing Offense which would demand a more physical Front Interior OL/Center.. Obviously Pedersen runs a similar System to Coach AR and ahis own variation of the West Coast Offense Schemes relying more on athletic OL than let’s say brute strength & size and Kelce has been perfect anchor and leader of the OL during his Eagle Career and of he continues to play at a high level for a few more seasons he could possibly be HOF material
The Ranking Sustem you described above I’m a little familiar with in reading about it as well
The Key is getting any young Player who is a scheme fit, hardworking and has high character and self-motivation and Coachable which the Eagles have done for the most part and especially across the OL/DL/RB/TE & QB
Over the Years… Now it’s time to add these type of Players to the Secondary/WR Groups to make a complete roster
The Eagles have typically put their CB’s on an island to compete on their own versus NFL Receivers and today’s NFL Receivers are so athletic that you to match that in terms of length,speed and natural Ball Skills to make Plays so hopefully this years DB’s will reflect more of these traits as a position group and adding Slay & Robey-Coleman will help

I like Rasoul Douglas but always thought he would be a better NFL Player at Safety rather than outside CB and really saw him as a MALCOLM Jenkins type of Safety playing down in the Box, Matching JP with TE’s and playing through run well..
Now Sidney Jones has just been a huge flat-out disappointment for everyone..
He has all the Physical Tools but plays too soft and without confidence which maybe can be attributed to his injuries or maybe his overall immaturity
I simply don’t think he’s mentally tough enough to play CB in Philly and probably needs a change of scenery if he ever wants a long term future in the NFL

ur opinion of kelce was that he was washed up and the eagles could get 5 or 6 for him=– it is the flaw of you draft junkies you don’t value players who contribute to wins- you value picks because it helps your off season be more interesting.
brandon graham is a winning player– he isn’t a HOF player- but he’s contributed to a shitload of wins as has Kelce– that is more valuable than a pick or a star player who is not on a winning team- you draft wonks say draft him for his talent- Beckam is as talented a player out there his teams are 37-59 and he keeps getting coaches fired because the GMs say i got you talent– I call bullshit- give me a team of players that contribute to wins!
yes players get eliminated from draft boards for character as well– which is why the cowboys and the browns have been so unsuccessful that doesn’t seem to be of value on their boards.

If the Eagles are not able to move up to attain either of the top 3 WR’s on this draft, I would like for them to draft Baylor WR Denzel Mims. Then with the second pick, if available draft Brandon Aiyuk , that sets the Eagles offense up nicely moving forward as it relates to the WR position. We clearly need upgrades at the wideout position, especially with an injured 30 yr old Alshon Jeffery and a speedy but 33 yr old Djax coming back from injury too.

Would love both those PIayers EHL and their Upside, I doubt very much though Brandon Aiyuk last’s to #53 though.. But Mims I do believe is the Pick at #21 and will be there as the Top 3 (Lamb,Juedy and Ruggs) will all likely be gone by the time the Eagles Select
We hear/read Pens State’s WR DJ Hamler as a possibility as that Future Speed Threat, but I’m not sure he last’s to the #53 spot either or Jalen Reagor … It may take the Eagles to Trade up in the 2nd Round to get in on that 2nd Tier of WR’s who will likely go Early-Mid 2nd Round (in that #35 to #45 Range of Selections)
Maybe Trade #53 and and late 4th Rd (#145th Pick) or 5th Round Pick and/or a Player like CB R Douglas/S Jones to move up 5-10 Spots in the 2nd Round
Maybe The Eagles can Trade up with the Panthers who have the #38 Selection and need some real help at CB and could be interested in a CB R Douglas or S Jones and an extra Mid-Round Pick as they go thru their Rebuilding Process where they need Quantity
The NY Jets who have the 48th Pick in the 2nd Round and really need CB Help too and Joe Douglas would be very familiar with both Douglas/Jones..

The NFL does not work this way anymore HAC
Teams Draft based on “Needs” and Positions that they Value the Most and not simply the “BPA” anymore and haven’t for a few years now.. Would the Eagles really Select a TE,RB,OT,DT,QB at #21 if that was the highest Player Rated on their Draft Board ? or even at #53 in the 2nd Round ?
Rookie Deals are 4 Years, and you want to fill as many needs with worthy Draft Picks who are younger and cheaper and get them on the field as quickly as possible..
Head Coaches/GM’s don’t have 5 Year Master Plans any longer on Building a Roster thru the Draft and all have the need to infuse young Talent quicker and quicker onto the Field.. Team Change-over their Rosters by 25%- 30% almost every Season so they need to fill holes with 4-5 Players they Drafted (and especially early Draft Picks) instead of letting them sit on the Bench and learn for a season or two like Years before, Teams use the Mid/Later Round Draft Picks to be their Special Teams Core Players or compete as back-ups or are used in situational basis or as replacements for injured players or make the Practice Squad but those Picks within the first 4 Rounds REALLY need to contribute sooner rather then later which is where the “Draft for Need” comes in
Eagles “Need at least 2 WR’s” from this Draft as both Jeffrey/Jackson will not be playing for the Eagles in 2021 or beyond and Jeffrey quite possibly may not even an Eagle on 2020, or ready until October so there is a Real Need to get 2 Quality WR’s from this Year’s Draft and get them on the Field and especially since the Eagles did not address this WR Position in Free-Agency and wisely so
A Receiving Corp featuring JJAW and Greg Ward is not going to win you many Games at the NFL Level
Eagles “Need” another “LB” who can contribute in 2020 in some form for the Eagles Defense
Eagles will “Need” more CB/Safety Talent for 2021 and Beyond as McLeod will be a Year Older and Mills is a Big ? converting to Safety and is only on a 1 Year Deal
Even CB Slay is 29 Years Old and SLot CB Robey-Coleman is on a 1 Year Cheapo Deal and will look to cash in on it next Free-agency similar to what Patrick Robinson did a couple years back
Both R Douglas,S Jones , C LeBlanc are all coming up in Contract Years after 2020 and at least 2 of these Players (Douglas/Jones) will likely be gone

Not true Paul. We’ve already pretty much agreed a that the eagles value: WR, DB, OL and DL. Assuming that they have their players scored on a 1-100 scale if when it is their turn to pick and the best players on their board have scores of 75,74,73,72…. they are taking the 75… given the strength of the draft and the nfl direction it’s a very good chance that will be a WR….

You throw out a thousand names of people you “evaluate”…. but they’ve got a system …. each position starts with an initial value based not on NEEDs it based on the importance it is in their system. Obviously QB starts out with the highest initial value, my guess is OL/DL start with the next highest value, with probably LB having the lowest starting value…. then they assign more points based on evaluation, interview, background check etc.
look at who in the last 5 years they’ve taken first round.. this draft it will be at one of those positions

Barnett, Avery, Sweat, R Miller & J Osterman and D Hall at the DE Position Poitions
and Hargrove, Rush & Ridgeway at the DT Position
I believe this 2020 Draft is purely about adding Speed,Talent and a Core of Players to the Skills Positions (WR & DB’s) so it’s going to be a little different than most Drafts we’ve seen by the Eagles in Recent Drafts

5 Most Important Players for the 2020 Eagles Team to be Successful and Playoff-Bound

1) QB Wentz – No Brainer- Need another Full and Solid Season from Wentz as every Good Team needs from its QB

2) LT Andre Dillard – Lots of Pressure taking over for HOF J Peters, but the Kids needs to Play and Play Well
and Improve thru Playing Experience

3) WR Corps – Whoever they Add plus the Returning Players (Ward,JJAW, D-Jax and Jeffrey ?) all need to Play Well and be Productive and raise their Games a couple of notches

4) DE – Genard Avery – Eagles gave up a 4th Round Pick to acquire Avery and he needs to get on the Field and Make Plays and could be a huge Boost to the DE Position if he can play an effective 25-30 Snaps a Game

5) Safety Jalen Mills – taking over for Defensive Leader Malcolm Jenkins is going to be hard to do for anyone,
Mills is also switching Positions at the NFL Level… This will be very interesting to see how he translates to the Safety Position

Honorable Mention

WR JJAW — Was the 46th Overall Pick in the 2019 Draft and he needs to take a Huge Step Forward as he has the Skills, Work Ethic and Intelligence to be a Solid #2/#3 WR in the NFL, He just needs to make plays and develop Confidence that he belongs at the NFL Level.. If Year #2 goes like his Rookie Year, then Eagles need to move on

CB – Sidney Jones – Was a 2nd Round Draft Pick (43rd Overall in the 2017 Draft) and is now entering his 4th Season as an Eagle and the Final Year of his Rookie Contract so there are no more Excuses or Injury/Maturity Issues that should hold him back from not only being a Starter but being a major player on this Defense.. He has all the Tools, Athleticism, Ball Skills,Coverage Technique to be a Solid CB in the NFL,
but does he have the Heart and Work Ethic to become a Starter and excel in the NFL ?
(hoping that Darius Slay can be a huge mentor for Sidney Jones)

OL – Matt Pryor – Played well at OG filling in for Barrett Brooks though he was orignally seen as more of a Swing Tackle like Big V was, Can he continue to improve and become more consistent and become tat Versatile OL that caqn play multiple Positions on a moment’s notice in place of Injury, Illness etc,etc
Both Brandon Brooks and Lane Johnson have both missed a few Games each the last couple of Seasons

Paul your projected draft picks by position…. you prove my point…100%.. in the last 5 drafts they’ve picked 5 WR, 5 OL, 6 DL, 9 DB .a couple of RB. a couple of TE, a couple of LB and 2 QB (of course Wentz was a multiple draft pick)…
So your revolutionary projection will be fairly accurate… 8 picks will be dominated by 4 position groups…WR, DB, OL and DL.

I’ve actually watched every Player Play on the above list multiple times over the last couple years and recall them all except for the final Player from Tulsa who I have never seen play
LB Hordyn Brooks is very similar to Jordan Hicks as has also had some injury issues while in College (Shoulder Surgery in December) but he’s a very good natural LB with great instincts and athleticism
WR Hightower has some real speed and excellent hands and I believe will be a very good NFL WR in 2 Years time..

Carolina Panthers make RB Christian McCaffrey the Highest Paid RB of all Time with a new 4 Year – $64 Million Deal (Avg $16 Million Per Season) .. He is their Face of the Franchise now even during their Rebuilding Process with a New Coaching Staff and System with lots of Young, New Players .. but make no mistake, this will make an Impact on future Deals for Quality,Versatile Dual Threat RB’s like Saints Alvin Kamara, NY GIants S Barkley, Browns Nick Chubb and eventually the Eagles with Miles Sanders…
Eagles would be smart to add another Quality RB to their RB room and continue to go with the “RB By Committee” which helps spread out the workload and overall production which in turn also helps with the Contracts that are offered as time moves on..

Good day! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa? My website covers a lot of the same subjects as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other. If you are interested feel free to shoot me an email. I look forward to hearing from you! Terrific blog by the way!|

Paulman Trade Rumor

The Eagles Trade #21 Overall Pick and in the 1st Round and CB R Douglas to the Indianapolis Colts for both their 2nd Round Picks (#34th and #44th Overall) – The Colts use the 21st Pick to Select QB J Love before the Patriots do and look to develop him behind Phil Rivers for a Season or two…

Now the Eagles have 3 Selections in the 2nd Round (#34, #44th & 53rd) and Select the Following Players

2nd Round
#34 – WR Brandon Aiyuk – Arizona State (6-0 205lbs)
#44 – Safety Ashtyn Davis – Cal (6-1 202lbs)
#53 – CB Bryce Hall – Virginia (6-1 202lbs)

3rd Round
#103 – WR Devin Duvernay – Texas (5-11 200lbs)

4th Round
# 127 – LB Logan Wilson – Wyoming (6-2 240lbs)
# 144 – OL Saahdiq Charles – LSU (6-4 320lbs)
# 145 – RB Antonio Gibson – Memphis (6-0 225lbs)

There will be 6-8 WR chosen in first round. Interesting about that is that only 27% of first round WR sign their second contract with he team that chooses them. That is not high payout for such a draft pick. Our good friend vinnie the victor used to say first round. QB, OL or DL

I think the WR Class is so deep that there won’t be as many taken in the 1st Round as many think
I see no more than 5 go in the 1st Round.. (Lamb,Jeudy, Ruggs and Jefferson for sure) but Receivers like Mims,Aiyuk,Reagor,Higgins, Shenault may all fall to the 2nd Round .. There is a Big Drop off with DB’s & Pass Rushers so a few of these Players at these Positions may sneak into the late 1st Round pushing many WR’s into that 2nd Round
All Teams are starting to covet LB’s who can Run and Cover well in Pass Defenses so there could be 4-5 of these Type of LB’s taken in the 1st Round as well where maybe there was only 1-2 LB’s taken in previous Drafts
There may even be No RB’s taken in the 1st Round and NFL Offenses evolve into more of a RB By Committee attack based on skill set as the NFL becomes more and more specialized even within a Position Group
End-Line BLocking TE’s is almost a position of the past like a Fullback as most Teams want 2 Skilled Pass-Catching and Athletic TE’s on their Roster and even on the field at the same time to help create more mis-matches ,etc,etc
Each Team needs 10 players who can Catch the Ball whether your WR,TE or RB) which in turns means you need 10-12 PLayers who can “cover well” whether its from the CB,Safety & LB Positions

I would rather the Eagles trade Back and Select two WR’s in the 2nd and 3rd Rounds with the extra Picks ..
There are some good LB’s, DB’s that will be gone by the 2nd/3rd Round so accumulate as many Picks in that Top 100 or so

That’s 49 draft picks… eagles replace entire team except Wentz, punter, kicker and long snapper. He finally gets rid of super bowl winners Graham and Kelce. Eagles in turn trade trade each player they have under contract for draft picks for the next 30 years. Eagles spend the next quarter century averaging 2 wins per year but are undefeated in March and April

And got Top 50 Talent with all the Late Round Picks too!! Ha !!
Eagles have 3 Selections in the Top 103 Selections
A Trade back from 21 would get 1 more Selection and maybe a Trade up with one of their three 4th Round Picks with a Player (R Douglas or S Jones) could get another in that Range)
