2021 NFL Draft Is Set For Thursday But What Will The Eagles Do?
The 2021 NFL Draft will take place in Cleveland, Ohio this upcoming Thursday; As of right now the Eagles have the 12th overall pick in the 86th Annual NFL Entry Draft. All types of speculation surrounds who the Eagles will pick in the First Round, consuming all the local sports media outlets leading up to Thursday Night. The Eagles held a press conference on Wednesday during which local reporters had a chance to ask the Eagles brass about their upcoming draft plans. The presser featured Vice President of Player Personal Andy Weidel and General Manager Howie Roseman staying calculated when answering questions from the media while the Eagles new Head coach Nick Sirianni replied to numerous questions with childlike enthusiasm. None of these men gave no real indication to what direction they will go in this year's NFL draft. There are plenty of reactions to specific remarks made during this press conference that have overshadowed the Sixers losing streak, the Phillies roster shuffling, and the Flyers inconsistent play this week.
