Could the Philadelphia Eagles make some moves in the upcoming 2020 NFL Draft by trading up for CeeDee Lamb?

Over the last few months, it has been no secret the Philadelphia Eagles are expected to select a wide receiver in the upcoming 2020 NFL Draft, even if it involves trading up in the first round.

At No. 21, chances are certain receivers such as Justin Jefferson or Denzel Mims will be available for the Eagles to consider once they are officially on the clock in the first round.

But if Philadelphia were interested in landing a top prospect at wide receiver such as CeeDee Lamb or Jerry Jeudy, it would most likely require trading up in the first round.

Speaking of Lamb, the Oklahoma standout was recently linked to the Eagles as a potential trade target in the first round if Philadelphia were interested in moving up from No. 21.

Talent wise, it’s easy to understand why Lamb is considered one of the top prospects at his position from this year’s draft class, and it will certainly be exciting to see the young wideout suit up in the NFL, whether it happens to be with the Eagles or someone else.

Since plenty of teams will be looking to upgrade at the wide receiver position right away in the draft, Philadelphia may be forced to give up a future first-round pick for Lamb just to have a shot at potentially pulling this deal off.

Of course, Lamb seems like the kind of player that would make any sort of trade deal well worth it for the Eagles, which is why Philadelphia should be strongly considering this possibility, especially after the previous reports.

With the start of the draft officially less than one week away, here are few reasons to support the Eagles pushing for a trade to land Lamb if this turned out to be the direction Philadelphia wants to take opening night.
