Philadelphia Eagles: 7-Round 2020 mock draft entering combine
By Dan Parzych
Due to all of the injuries surrounding key players such as Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson, the wide receiver position became a major issue for the Eagles throughout the 2019 season, which made their division title even more impressive to pull off.
Of course, Philadelphia is smart enough to know this approach most likely won’t work again in their favor during in 2020, meaning it will be extremely important to add the necessary depth at the wide receiver position over the next few months.
Not to mention, with the futures of both Jeffery and Jackson in Philadelphia at the moment appearing to be up in the air, this makes it even more likely the Eagles will address their need at wide receiver in the upcoming draft.
Taking a chance on another USC wideout in Michael Pittman Jr. will leave some Philadelphia fans with an uneasy feeling due to Nelson Agholor, but also keep in mind the two receivers are on completely different levels.
After watching Pittman crush his previous career highs as a senior with the Trojans in 2019 by catching 101 passes for 1,275 yards with 11 touchdowns, why wouldn’t the Eagles consider this possibility in the third round to improve their passing game?
