With the NFL Draft approaching, there are a handful of Eagles that might be attractive options if they’re placed on the trade block.

Trades don’t happen often in the NFL, but year after year, Philadelphia Eagles vice president/general manager Howie Roseman surprises us with one or two. Don’t tell anyone we said this, but with the way he fleeces teams from time to time, we’re still trying to figure out why the other general managers still take his call, especially if they work for the New Orleans Saints or Cleveland Browns.

Mention trades, and people get squeamish. No one wants to give up on a player too early. No one wants to wager a deal they’ll live to regret, but with another NFL Draft looming, you may hear some talk about the trade block, even if there isn’t a ton of movement early.

As far as the Eagles are concerned, we have identified a few guys worth adding. Package them with a draft choice that might allow the Eagles to move up during a round or two, or see what type of return they might be able to facilitate on their own merit. Regardless of how it gets done, it’s worth throwing the fishing line out to see which teams bite.

That brings us to the 14th overall selection of the 2017 NFL Draft and a few of his teammates. Here are four Birds that might have a market.
