The Eagles trade pick 19 and a third-day choice to land D.K. Metcalf.

It’s been argued that the Eagles would have mortgaged a first-round draft choice (or several) if it would have meant they could add Russell Wilson to the fold. Some have even said that they would have used a first-rounder on a quarterback from this draft class if anyone would have been able to prove they’re worthy of that type of investment.

Debate still wages about whether or not anyone fits the bill.

There have been discussions about whether or not Howie Roseman would actually sit in the Eagles draft war room and make three picks in the first round. If he did, it would be nice to see him address all three levels of his defense.

Dare we say that Philly adds a D-lineman, a linebacker, and a cornerback? It would be nice, but we doubt it. He won’t do all of that at once.

Here’s a statement that’s been made in passing but, at the same time, one that always perks the ears up. What if the Eagles became buyers in what looks like a mini-fire sale in Seattle with the Seahawks? Here’s our proposal.

The Philadelphia Eagles trade the 19th-overall, Jalen Reagor, and a third-day draft selection (a fifth-rounder) to the Hawks. Seattle can go get Malik Willis if they decide they aren’t totally sold on Drew Lock or whatever else they want. The Philadelphia Eagles in return get D.K. Metcalf, and just like that, they have a legitimate star at the wide receiver position.

Philadelphia becomes a better offense overnight. The first night of the 2022 NFL Draft ends with a bang for Eagles Nation. Come on. What do you say? Don’t tell us that this isn’t slightly interesting.
