The Philadelphia Eagles have some big decisions to make in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Despite the Philadelphia Eagles sitting in a prime position with the sixth pick in the NFL Draft, general manager Howie Roseman has to consider trading back and adding picks. While it isn’t every year the Eagles get to pick in the top ten of the selection meeting, they are bombarded with roster issues, so the idea of adding more picks is intriguing.

Most Philadelphia Eagles fans have fallen in love with one prospect or another, some of which, more than likely won’t be available at six, so the idea of Philly trading down in the draft and losing the opportunity to land one of these blue-chip favorites won’t sit well with them.

With that being said, it has to be an option, especially with the lack of depth that haunts the Philadelphia Eagles at all positions. Moving back in round 1 could allow Philly to add more players that will assist a fractured team’s roster.

We at ITI decided to scour the top 20 prospects expected to be available between the ninth and 32nd selection, and we’ve identified the five best options for this team if they considered the possibility of trading down. Just hear us out. Here they are in no particular order.
