The NFL Draft approaches, and the Eagles may be feeling some pressure.

In a few hours, the Philadelphia Eagles will be on the clock to make the tenth overall selection in the NFL Draft, and friends, we couldn’t be more nervous. We don’t have to make the pick. We won’t be in the war room, and even with the knowledge of all of that, we can’t think of a time when we have been this anxious about anything,

Who would have thought? There isn’t much difference between excitement and anxiety, but with every draft, there’s this harsh reality. So many things can go both right and wrong. The Eagles have a high chance of landing one of the top one or two guys at their position with the tenth-overall selection, but there’s always a chance of failure if that player doesn’t work out. Let’s hope for the former scenario. Philly can’t mess this up.

Is it hot in here? Why are we sweating? Is anybody else biting their fingernails? We have never experienced stage fright before, but if we were to guess, this is most certainly what it would feel like.

We apologize again for ever doubting Howie Roseman. We’re glad that this is his job and not ours. The options are expansive. The margin for error is thin. Here are the worst-case scenarios involving the Eagles’ tenth-overall selection.
