While Philadelphia Eagles fans continue to mull over the results of the 2020 NFL Draft, the rest of the NFC East added plenty of great prospects as well.

The wait for NFL training camp may not be on the immediate horizon with the uncertainty of the coronavirus clouding potential future league plans, but speculation of which teams may have improved after the 2020 NFL Draft is already well underway, including for the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fans are likely wondering how the selections of Jalen Reagor, John Hightower, and Quez Watkins, in addition to the acquisition of Marquise Goodwin, could reshape the team’s wide receiver core. Or, just what the exact plan for new quarterback Jalen Hurts could possibly be.

But new additions to the Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants, and Washington Redskins can immediately change the fortunes of the Eagles’ rivals.

For 16 consecutive years, no team in the NFC East has been able to win the division title in back-to-back seasons. While Philadelphia secured its 2019 division title in the final week of the regular season, speculation of a repeat effort in 2020 isn’t so certain.

With three new head coaches running the show in Dallas, New York, and Washington along with a bevy of flashy new draft picks joining the league, which team has the greatest chance to overcome the Eagles’ reign atop the division?

Better yet, could 2020 become the year Philadelphia conquers the chaotic division and win back-to-back NFC East titles to put the impressive streak within the division to an end?

Since the draft is officially over, for the Eagles and the rest of the teams within the NFC East, let’s take a look at how the newest draftees could help improve each team’s quest for a division title in 2020, and what opportunities may have been missed in the recent draft.
