Since Philadelphia’s offensive line has a few key members getting up their in age, there’s a good chance the Eagles look to this year’s draft to bring on an offensive lineman or two to help build for the future.
Otherwise, Philadelphia could end up in a difficult position around this time next year if someone for instance such as Jason Kelce decides to call it a career and retire.
Luckily for the Eagles, the offensive line is a position they can easily address in one of the middle rounds since there will be plenty of opportunities to land a potential steal.
But if Philadelphia were interested in trading up for one of the top offensive lineman from this year’s draft class, Iowa’s Tristan Wirfs could be right up their ally.
In what shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone, there are numerous teams ahead of the Eagles in the first round that will be looking to address the offensive line right away, some of which happen to be in the top 10.
If Philadelphia truly believes Wirfs is one of their best options to help provide the necessary protection for Carson Wentz, there’s no chance the Iowa star is still available at No. 21.
