It won’t take long for the Philadelphia Eagles G.M. to make waves.
How’s this for a curveball? The Eagles give up the sixth pick to the Broncos, and in return, Denver gives up the ninth, the 41st, and the 73rd.
It’s no secret that the Philadelphia Eagles have multiple positions to address, and using seven picks to do so won’t get the job done. Luckily, with this draft having multiple quarterbacks that are worth picking in the top five, talented players are going to drop, and teams are going to offer trades to move up.
General Manager Howie Roseman loves a good draft-day trade, but this time, by doing so, he does the Birds a great service.
In this trade scenario, Philly still wins as they stay in the top ten while also adding another second-round and a third-round selection. It’s the ultimate win-win for both teams as the Broncos get their quarterback while the Eagles add two more top-end prospects. Adding two more picks will give the Philadelphia Eagles front office five total selections in the first three rounds, five picks that could lead to five blue-chip athletes.
