Trades are inevitable in the draft, so a Philadelphia Eagles mock with only trades is fitting.
Howie Roseman and the Philadelphia Eagles front office have already multiplied draft picks this offseason with a pick acquisition and swap with Miami, the Carson Wentz trade, and the Marquise Goodwin reversion, but there could be more trades on the horizon. After all, people, this is the NFL Draft and if there is one thing we can all be certain of, it is the uncertainty.
The Philadelphia Eagles are entering a rebuild with a new head coach and a new(ish) starting quarterback under center. The 2021 NFL Draft could either be a stepping stone into a bright future for the Eagles organization or it could be a morbid drop-off point into the basement of the league.
The 2021 draft is laced with talent, especially at the top of the board. With several quarterbacks projected to land within the top-10, the Eagles should be sitting nicely, just outside the top 10, to select a franchise-changing player.
There should be pressure on Roseman and company to get this draft right. After all, the Eagles are in rebuild mode due to the lack of youth and poor drafting in years past. If Roseman and company can get this draft right, it might buy him more years in the GM seat as well as set this organization back on track for success.
The phones ring off the hook in draft war rooms throughout the league and in this mock, the Eagles phone deserved a pay raise. Philadelphia is coming into the 2021 NFL Draft with 11 picks, but will they leave with 11?
Let’s kick this off in the first round.
