3. Piecing together a trade package may be the Philadelphia Eagles’ easiest path to landing one of college football’s best quarterbacks.
If the picks belonging to the Eagles and the Saints don’t place them among the first ten selections or so and if the Eagles are seriously interested in C.J. Stroud or Bryce Young, Philadelphia has enough assets to move up and place themselves into position to land a top-ten talent.
Vice president/general manager Howie Roseman has done a great job with stacking draft capital. Along with the aforementioned pair of first-rounders in 2023, the Eagles own an additional second-round draft choice in 2023 and two second-rounders in 2024. Talk about bargaining chips.
The Eagles could also explore the idea of trading Miles Sanders, Andre Dillard, and/or Fletcher Cox, to add even more draft capital. The point is this. The possibilities are endless.
C.J. Stroud and Bryce Young will be the belles of the ball in 2023, but if the Eagles don’t acquire either of those guys, there are other quarterbacks to watch out for. Make sure you keep your eyes peeled for D.J. Uiagalelei (Clemson), Phil Jurkovek (Boston College), and Kedon Slovis (Pittsburgh). Depending on how they perform in their final years at the collegiate level, they could catapult themselves into the first-round conversation.
They aren’t there yet, but anything can happen as we make our way through the next college football season. It should be fun to watch.
