Think of the possibilities. Perhaps one of the most talked-about and some may say worn-out topics of this offseason surrounds the Philadelphia Eagles‘ potential ten NFL Draft picks. It’s exciting because they have so many. It’s also difficult to believe they’ll make good on them when, more often than not in recent memory, they’ve had more sad stories than success stories with the guys they’ve brought in.
For every triumph, there have seemingly been two failures. They win with Carson Wentz, Halapoulivaati Vaitai, and Jalen Mills (you can’t argue with getting a starter in the sixth round). They lose with Joe Walker, Blake Countess, and Alex Singleton.
They win with Rasul Douglas and Nathan Gerry (two guys who turned out to be better than they thought they’d be). They lose with Mack Hollins, Donnel Pumphrey, Shelton Gibson, Sidney Jones, and Elijah Qualls, and those are just the first two drafts of the Doug Pederson era.
Now, much of that is on Joe Douglas. In hindsight, he was awful, but new seasons bring new opportunities. Eagles vice president and general manager Howie Roseman has more flexibility than he’s ever had. This is the most money he’s had to spend and the most draft picks he’s had to utilize. The ‘Birds’ have to hit the bulls-eye with every pick in 2020’s selection meeting, especially in the later rounds.
One area of need that we all can agree on is this team needs young pass rushers. Not too long ago, the ITI staff gave fans a list of some of the favorites. Here are six guys who will potentially be available if they add one on Day 3 of April’s draft.
