Eagles would trade up for Kyle Pitts or a quarterback
Expert states Eagles would trade up for among 3 gamers initially appeared on NBC Sports Philadelphia
Howie Roseman has a credibility as one of the NFL’s the majority of twitchy traders around the Draft. He appears to enjoy wheeling and dealing choices and gamers, to include possessions or chase after potential customers.
So even after the Eagles traded down with Miami from No. 6 to No. 12, reports continued about the Birds considering a trade back up, and now we may have some concept of who Roseman & Co. have an interest in pursuing.
According to CBS Sports NFL expert Jason La Canfora, officers around the league think Roseman would trade up from No. 12 for among 3 gamers:
“If the Eagles move back up, the GMs I have spoken to believe it’s for Pitts or a QB. Never rule anything out when it comes to the Eagles and potential trades.”
This is very fascinating, since I believe some thought Roseman may be happy to go up ahead of the Giants and Cowboys for among Jaylen Waddle or Patrick Surtain, in an effort to avoid in 2015’s Ceedee Lamb scenario from taking place once again: enjoying a prospective star fall under a department competitor’s lap.
The very first 2 choices of the draft have to do with as set in stone as you can get, and the 49ers will take a quarterback, which suggests starting at No. 4, the Eagles will be on the trade clock with their eyes on 3 gamers: Pitts, and the 2 quarterbacks who stay out of Mac Jones, Trey Lance, and Justin Fields.
Now, the watchful fan will keep in mind: if the Eagles had actually simply remained at No. 6, they would’ve been ensured among those 3 gamers. So why’d they trade down?
Possibly their draft board just has 2 of those gamers graded extremely – state, Pitts and Lance – and was persuaded when they traded down that the draft was going to fall versus their interests.
And perhaps they’re amazed by the 49ers having an interest in Jones over Fields, and are now questioning if they may in fact have a shot at Fields.
There are numerous variables around this time of year, with simply days up until the draft. Something’s for specific: after the No. 3 choice is made, Eagles fans much better buckle up.
