Another colossal draft-day trade is completely possible for this Eagles organization.

While Howie Roseman is a controversial figure in the Philadelphia Eagles organization, he is respected and well-known for his ability to maneuver the draft board. We saw evidence of this earlier in the month when Philly struck a deal with the New Orleans Saints, one involving eight total draft choices.

Philadelphia dealt the 16th and 19th overall selections along with the 194th-overall selection to the Saints in exchange for five of their picks, including the 18th overall selection, a 2023 first-rounder, and a second-rounder in 2024.

With the draft less than a week away, the Eagles may begin thinking about the possibility of striking another deal if they don’t approve of the way things are going on the first night of the draft. There’s no doubt that Roseman will strongly consider any offer he receives, especially if that means Philly gets more picks, and if the right partner makes an offer, it isn’t impossible to think deals will be made.

As the opening round of the coming selection meeting approaches, we put our thinking caps on. Here’s another mock to whet your whistle, and yes, Howie is wheeling and dealing in Round 1 with an NFC North team in need of some upgrades of their own.
