As the 2019 NFL Draft quickly approaches, let’s take a look at the Philadelphia Eagles’ top five needs.
Is the 2019 NFL Draft here yet? At this point, we’re getting impatient. Every offseason since the beginning of Howie Roseman’s take over has been exciting, but mainly because of Free Agency. Sure, there were some exciting draft picks from the Philadelphia Eagles over the last three offseasons, but there’s really not a draft that we can point to and say “man, the Eagles really killed it that year with their picks.” Hopefully, this year is a different outcome.
In a few weeks, the Eagles will make seven selections if nothing changes. A first-rounder, two second-rounders, and some mid-to-late round selections will arrive in Philly for Rookie Mini-Camp very soon. And as the Eagles could be looking to turn a page in their franchise as early as next season, there’s going to be some high-hopes for these incoming rookies to start creating an impact on the team in 2020.
As the Eagles are in win-now mode, they have patched up the few holes on the roster with some veteran free agent’s. So to say that they are drafting based off of 2019 needs would be a bit of a stretch. Fortunately, the Eagles will be selecting guys to come in and develop while being nothing more than a depth player from the start. And if they do happen to create an impact this season, then all of that is just a plus. Regardless of whether the Eagles draft based off of need or not though, what are the Eagles’ top five needs ranked?
