Believe it or not, the Philadelphia Eagles deserve to be viewed as one of the big winners from this past weekend during the 2020 NFL Draft.
Between missing out on CeeDee Lamb along with drafting Jalen Hurts in the second round, there were plenty of Philadelphia Eagles fans feeling all sorts of frustration early on for the team’s decisions during the 2020 NFL Draft.
However, when looking at the overall perspective of the draft, and all the new talent coming on board, there are numerous reasons to believe the Eagles deserve to be considered big winners from the big event.
After seeing all of the struggles from last season on offense due to key injuries to certain players such as Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson, Philadelphia realized the importance of making sure they took advantage of this year’s draft class with all of the talent at wide receiver.
It was one thing for the Eagles to add Jalen Reagor in the first round at No. 21, despite plenty of fans preferring the team to go with Justin Jefferson, but seeing John Hightower and Quez Watkins get drafted as well has put the receiving corps in much better position for 2020.
Of course, the new additions at wide receiver aren’t the only reason Philadelphia had a successful weekend, as the team is arguably in much better shape to earn another trip to the playoffs for a fourth year in a row.
Now that the draft is officially over and done with, it’s time to take a look back at why the Eagles deserve to be considered one of the big winners from the weekend thanks to all their key additions on both sides of the football.
