Philadelphia Eagles may have found a few game-changers in the draft.

Now that the 2021 NFL Draft is over, Philadelphia Eagles fans have a chance to take a deep breath. The excitement of the three-day extravaganza was overwhelming at times, but when it was all said and done, the Birds walked away from it better than they were when they came in.

While first-round pick DeVonta Smith will get all the attention, it was the later rounds that may have produced a few difference-makers.

Prior to the draft, media and fans alike had their opinions of what the front office should do with their girth of picks. The truth is, the Eagles have to build for the near future, so this draft had to be about that. Whether you thought the team should draft a corner early or completely overhaul the wide receiver room, when it was all said and done, the Birds needed to add talent to any and all positions, and they did the best they could.

Day three was where we saw some intrigue. Philly added talent. While Smith deserves the adoration he’s getting, it’s these three prospects that could have fans screaming for joy. They could wind up being absolute steals.
