Eagles’ a Team to Watch Move Up in First-Round
The Eagles have been known to make moves on draft day and armed with two picks in Round 1 of Thursday's first-round, there is a strong possibility they could make a move again.
When discussing the possibility of the Eagles moving up in the draft, NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport said the Eagles are one of the teams that are most notable about making calls to move up.
"No surprise," Rapoport said. "It seems Howie Roseman is interested in doing a lot of things, moving up is one. Moving back is another. He wants to keep his options open."
Rapoport mentions the Eagles two picks, and the possibility of moving up in the event a corner or edge rusher starts to fall.
One name he mentioned is Oregon defensive end, Kayvon Thibodeaux, who piled up 19 career sacks in 31 games along with 34.5 career tackles for loss for the Ducks.
He he falls, will the Eagles jump at the chance to grab him?
"We'll keep our eye on that," Rapoport stated. No one loves trades more than Howie Roseman."
