After focusing on wide receiver in the first round, the Philadelphia Eagles will have plenty of great options to consider at No. 53 in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft.

With the No. 21 pick in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft, the Philadelphia Eagles decided to add another weapon for Carson Wentz to work with at wide receiver by selecting TCU’s Jalen Reagor.

Once the Dallas Cowboys decided to make the surprise pick at No. 17 in CeeDee Lamb since wide receiver wasn’t exactly a top need for Mike McCarthy and company, the Eagles seemed to be on their way to landing Justin Jefferson at No. 21.

The LSU star wideout was available for Philadelphia to consider, but the defending NFC East champions decided to take a bit of a risk with the hope of earning a high reward by going with Reagor instead.

Now that wide receiver has already been addressed early on for the Eagles, the attention now shifts to the second round with Philadelphia at No. 53 to see which position they decide to focus on improving.

Whether it involves bringing on another cornerback to compete for the No. 2 job alongside Darius Slay or adding an extra safety to help fill the void left by Malcolm Jenkins, the Eagles should have plenty of great options to consider, depending on what the teams ahead decide to do.

Round 1 of the draft may officially be in the books, and fans are certainly thrilled to see the team fill a need at wide receiver early on with Reagor, but also there is still plenty of work to do for the Eagles, beginning in the second round on Friday.

To give fans a better idea of what Day 2 could have in store, here are some of the best options for Philadelphia to consider at No. 53 to help put the team in better position to remain a top contender for 2020.
