Tight End. Badgers . Jake Ferguson. 124. player. 809.

The Eagles find a Robin for Dallas Goedert’s Batman.

Say what you want to say about how the Eagles evaluate every other position. They’ve been brilliant at finding tight ends. There’s just one issue. Now that Zach Ertz is gone, they only have one that scares anyone, Dallas Goedert.

That’s why it would be wise to utilize a selection on the position on Day 3, and that’s what Philadelphia does with the 124th-overall selection in Round 4. Jake Ferguson is the choice, and the Birds hit the jackpot with this selection.

He’s a bit underrated, but he’s a baller. In 47 career games at Wisconsin with the Badgers, he hauled in 145 receptions for 1,618 yards and 13 touchdowns.

player. 817. . guard. Tigers . Chasen Hines. 154

NFL teams can never have too many pass rushers. They can never have too many good offensive linemen either. The Birds are pretty well stocked even after Brandon Brooks’ retirement. Don’t forget about the fact that Isaac Seumalo and Jack Driscoll return from injury in 2022.

It’s still wise to add a little insurance though, and that’s what they do so with their first draft choice in Round 5. Chasen Hines of the LSU Tigers is the choice here.
