The Philadelphia Eagles’ first-round pick could be collateral for a trade.

The 2021 NFL Draft is right around the corner, and the Philadelphia Eagles are one of the few teams that are sitting pretty. With a draft filled with blue-chip quarterbacks and with so many teams that are quarterback-needy, the Birds will see some very talented players drop.

Philly may not need to add a gunslinger, but they do have several holes that need to be addressed ASAP.

With that being said, Philadelphia Eagles vice president and general manager Howie Roseman needs to figure out a way to add draft capital and fill as many holes as possible.

We at Inside the Iggles decided to study the teams drafting behind Philadelphia, and we came up with three potential trade scenarios that could help Philly maximize draft capital. How’s this for a few ideas.
