5 Wide receivers Philadelphia Eagles must avoid in 2020 NFL Draft
We can cross a few names off of the Philadelphia Eagles’ 2020 NFL Draft boards as the cream is starting to rise to the top of a deep class.
Well, as bad as it’s been for the Philadelphia Eagles over the past seven months at wide receiver, there is a silver lining in what’s been a very dark cloud. The 2020 NFL Draft class is deep at the position. It truly is. If your favorite team was ever in need of weapons on the outside of its offense, this would be the year you would want to walk into the draft with the hope of finding one or two.
The Eagles will also be afforded some flexibility. After having only ten draft picks at their disposal in 2018 and 2019, Philly may have ten total picks in 2019’s selection meeting. Not only that, once free agency begins, they should have a little over $40 million to spend on talent in a pool of some very big fish.
Maybe the idea is to land a veteran wideout in March and then to select one or two in April. With so much incoming talent, it’s easy to believe that the Eagles should come out on the winning side regardless of who they select, but we all know that isn’t the case.
There are always duds, and if you’re a ‘Birds’ fan, you’re well aware that, if anybody can screw up the evaluation process of wide receivers, it’s Howie Roseman and this Eagles team. The cream is starting to rise to the top, and we can already see who the studs are. Here are five guys that, conversely, we can also cross off of the list as possible prospects to earn the wings on their helmet and a midnight green jersey.
