Another day passes, and that means Philadelphia Eagles fans and the fans of every other NFL team are one step closer to the three days at the end of April that make up the 2021 NFL Draft. For whatever reason, it feels like the Super Bowl was a year ago, doesn’t it?

If you’re an addict of our great nation’s greatest game, without an NFL Combine to dissect, it feels like it’s been forever since we saw a football-related activity. These Pro days just aren’t filling the void, not like they should be.

Here’s something that Philadelphia Eagles fans will find interesting.

March and April of every calendar year lead us all to the same train of thought if you self-identify as an NFL fan. We’re all thinking about where our team picks in Round 1 and who they might select when they’re on the clock.

The narrative never seems to change if you’re a Birds fan. For whatever reason, they’re always in the market for wide receivers, cornerbacks, linebackers, and depth along the offensive line and at tailback.

Jaylen Waddle and DeVonta Smith are both names that have come up a lot in Eagles circles. The former missed much of the 2020 college football season with an injury but appears to be healed. He’s among the top prospects at his position, and recently, Najee Harris, another of Alabama’s game-breakers gave his former teammate a unique compliment while speaking with ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Take a look.

Here are a couple of final thoughts if you’re a Philadelphia Eagles fan.

Well, you know what they say! No one knows you better than the people who are closest to you. Sure, Waddle upgrades the wide receiver position for the Eagles immediately, but what are the Birds thinking? Here are two thoughts.

One, you have to consider whether or not the wide receiver position is even in play from a Philadelphia Eagles standpoint when they’re on the clock at 12. Second, if they are considering the prospect of taking a wide receiver in Round 1 for the second year in a row, one has to ask themselves something else. Once 11 other NFL teams make their selections, including at least five teams that need help at the position, isn’t it fair to argue that Jaylen Waddle may not even be available anyway?
