Well, we know the Philadelphia Eagles won’t have a shot at 11 prospects.

We’re less than a month away from the 2021 NFL Draft, and the Philadelphia Eagles stand in an interesting position. It’s clear that the team is in a rebuilding phase and with the most picks of any team in the upcoming selection meeting, the Birds have a real chance to add some young talent to the roster.

The trade back to the 12th pick makes it a little tougher to find a can’t-miss prospect, but there are a ton of difference makers that will still be available. The challenge is now in recognizing which players might succeed in Philadelphia, something that the team has struggled with recently.

11 teams pick ahead of the Eagles and as the draft nears, the plan of attack for these teams is becoming more and more obvious. Sure, the draft always has its curveballs, but fans and front offices have a general idea about what may happen on April 29th.

With that being said, here are a few educated guesses on which players might be selected before Philadelphia’s on the clock. We’re taking you from the first pick to the 12th and offering some analysis. Okay, guys and gals, let’s have some fun.
