The Philadelphia Eagles need to do their due diligence in the 2021 NFL Draft.

The Philadelphia Eagles pick sixth in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft unless, of course, they trade down, but you already know that. There’s a loaded pool of talent in the selection meeting, and the Eagles’ front office can’t leave any stone unturned.

Somewhere between the exorbitant amount of talent that sits on their rivals’ rosters in the NFC East and the lack of talent they possess rests a feeling that there’s some pressure to get the first selection in the draft right.

Excitement is high in the City of Brotherly Love, with their favorite team selecting in the top-ten.  The draft won’t arrive until April, but some Philadelphia Eagles fans have already seemingly made their minds up on who they think the Birds should select. Often, it’s the same three names that keep popping up over and over.

Howie Roseman and his merry men must consider every draft prospect as a possibility, so with that being said, we at ITI decided to do our homework on the 2021 NFL Draft prospects. Here are three players that fans and media alike need to be talking about, all of which could be surprise picks that could also pay dividends soon.
