With free agency officially in full swing, the focus surrounding the Philadelphia Eagles is about to shift towards the 2020 NFL Draft.

Even though free agency is only a little over a week old for the Philadelphia Eagles and every other team, all of the attention is quickly going to shift towards the 2020 NFL Draft in April since opening night is only a few more weeks away.

Just like every other team in the league, the Eagles have a pretty good idea of which positions they hope to focus on in the first round at No. 21 to help fill some of the weaknesses from this past season.

From bringing on help at wide receiver for Carson Wentz to improving at the linebacker position, Philadelphia will certainly have numerous prospects to consider once officially on the clock in the first round, depending on which players happen to be available at certain position.

In fact, despite recently bringing on Darius Slay and Nickell Robey-Coleman to boost the defense, the Eagles could even end up going with a cornerback in the first round just to provide some extra competition for training camp.

This time of year can always be exciting for football fans in regards to which players could potentially be coming on board during the draft, especially when it comes to the Eagles after Philadelphia earned a trip to the playoffs last season for a third year in a row.

After making some key moves in free agency, it’s time to take another look at some of the best options for Philadelphia to consider in the first round of April’s draft once the team is officially on the clock at No. 21.
