Philadelphia Eagles WR draft and free agent power rankings, March edition
Here’s a list of the ten best options at wide receiver for the Philadelphia Eagles in the upcoming free-agency period and among the guys entering the NFL Draft.
The fans and media have spoken. The consensus is this. The Philadelphia Eagles must select a wide receiver with the 21st-overall selection in 2020’s version of the NFL Draft. There’s just one issue. Though most of us are in agreement on that idea, none of us have the power to make said selection.
Unless something has changed in the last five minutes, Howie Roseman is still the executive vice president and general manager of these Eagles, and he’s made no indications about what the ‘Birds’ intend to do.
We’ve been certain about things before, and we were right (Carson Wentz in 2016). There have also been occasions like we saw in 2017’s selection meeting. We were all pretty certain that a cornerback was the plan of action in Round 1 of that draft, and Philly went with Derek Barnett, a defensive end.
Drafts are a crapshoot. None of us know how these things will play out, not even the teams that we root for. Even with that being said, the Eagles’ issues about drama and injuries at the wide receiver position have been well documented. Wentz needs a legitimate go-to guy. Most of us hope the Eagles select a wide receiver in Round 1. The emotional health of an entire fan base depends on them doing so. Don’t forget that there are a few free-agent options as well. Here are power rankings for both. We begin with a decent crop of ten potential free agents.
