The Eagles have some options at receiver, tight end, and along the offensive line.

We have seen the Eagles take wide receivers and tight ends early. We know there's always potential to see an offensive lineman drafted. Here are a handful of options for each interest.

3. Wide Receiver - Emeka Egbuka

The Eagles have a couple more years to enjoy A.J. Brown's talents, but eventually, they'll have to think about paying him. There's a fifth-year option available to them on DeVonta Smith's rookie deal, so he's locked in through 2025.

The Eagles need some depth at this position though. Quez Watkins scares people for the wrong reasons. Olamide Zaccheaus is only signed for one season. Julio Jones is, in a word, old.

It's doubtful that Philly has any shot at landing Marvin Harrison Jr. Keon Coleman might be the 2024 draft's second-best wide receiver. Might Emeka Egbuka grab the Eagles' attention? Projected round: Late 1st or early 2nd

4. Tight End - Ja'Tavion Sanders

Brock Bowers is the top tight end in the country. Ja'Tavion Sanders isn't too far behind him. The questions are about whether or not Philly is interested.

Jaheim Bell (Florida State) and Erick All (Iowa) are nice consolation prizes. Projected round: Mid-1st/Early second

5. Center - Matt Lee

Matt Lee might be the second-best center in the 2024 draft class after Georgia's Sedrick Van Pran. The Birds have two guys that can already play the position. Luckily for Lee, he's versatile, and we know Jeff Stoutland loves that. Projected round: Early 2nd

6. Guard - Layden Robinson

Graham Barton is a guard/tackle hybrid and potentially the best interior offensive lineman in this class. He can also play a little tackle. Layden Robinson is a six-foot-four, 315-pound monster who figures to grade out as a right guard in the NFL. Keep an eye on him as we approach April. Projected round: 2nd

7. Tackle - Kingsley Suamataia

Kingsley Suamataia has been scary good for the BYU Cougars. He stands at six-foot-six and tips the scales at 315 pounds, but he is shockingly athletic for his size.

You know the Eagles love seeing all of this. Projected round: 1st
