Berman: 2019 Has Chance To Be Defining Draft For The Eagles
The 2019 NFL Draft will be the fourth offseason with Howie Roseman back in his role as the leader of the Eagles Front Office. The previous three drafts have produced eight players who have started games for the Eagles over the last three years, including five players who were selected in the top three rounds of the NFL Draft (Carson Wentz, Derek Barnett, Dallas Goedert, Rasul Douglas, Isaac Seumalo). In 2019, the Eagles have three picks in the top two rounds of the NFL Draft.
Philly.com Eagles Beat Writer Zach Berman joined Harry Mayes and Eytan Shander on Wednesday discussing what the Eagles may do in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft:
"There should be more buzz here, this has a chance to be really one of the defining drafts for the Eagles in recent years when you look at the fact they have three picks in the top 57. As far as what they are going to do, it really depends on when the run on Quarterbacks comes and when the run of Wide Receivers comes....If there are four Quarterbacks (drafted) in the top 17 or perhaps even higher, there's going to be some good players who move down the board....I wouldn't rule the Eagles out (to trade) up if there is a guy they feel has elite potential who is there in the teens; So not top ten, maybe not top twelve, but I say after top 12 if a guy is there that they think can be a Pro Bowler, the Eagles have the chips to trade up."
