Let’s hope the Philadelphia Eagles aren’t still looking for wideouts in 2022.
Well, here we go again. April is here, so if you’re a Philadelphia Eagles fan, get ready for one more rush of mocks and NFL Draft conspiracy theories before we finally arrive at 2021’s version of the annual selection meeting. As usual, Birds fans are both excited and terrified about what’s to come.
There’s reason to be optimistic with 11 draft picks. There are reasons to be fearful when everyone knows their favorite team’s fate lies in the hands of one Howie Roseman and a team chairman who, as days pass, looks to be just as meddlesome as Jerry Jones is.
Remember when we all used to pick on the Dallas Cowboys for being run by the guy that didn’t know when to butt out? We don’t do that anymore, do we?
April brings showers that will eventually give us flowers, but it also means, for Eagles fans, that we’ll be talking about this team’s need for linebackers, cornerbacks, and, of course, wide receivers.
After drafting three wideouts in 2020. The need seems to be just as present as ever. Maybe the Eagles will take one as early as Round 1. Maybe, if they don’t do that, they’ll go with one in Round 2. They have to right?
Sure, we said this last season, but this is a draft that seems to be littered with talent at the position. We all know who Ja’Marr Chase, DeVonta Smith, and Jaylen Waddle are. Some of you are even pumped about that next tier: Kadarius Toney, Terrace Marshall Jr., Tutu Atwell, and Rashod Bateman. We’re going to assume those are the first and second-rounders.
Here’s the next tier. Here’s a ranking of the top five guys that could be available after Round 2
