NFL.com Mock Draft: Eagles Land LSU WE Brian Thomas Jr at 22
We have arrived to the final week of the NFL.
With Super Bowl Sunday on the horizon, 30 of the 32 NFL teams are now locked into their draft place for the 2024 NFL Draft.
The Eagles currently have pick No. 22.
With some many holes that need to be filled, especially on the defensive side of the ball, Howie Roseman will certainly be under the microscope.
NFL.com lead draft writer Eric Edholm took his first crack at this year's draft, with his mock draft 1.0.
So who does he see the Eagles landing with pick 22?
How about a LSU wide receiver, Brian Thomas Jr., who had 68 catches, 17 of which went for touchdowns and 1,177 yards in 2023.
The strange vibes around A.J. Brown and the Eagles make me wonder if a first-round receiver might be in play. I think Thomas ultimately could rise above this range of the draft, but it's also a deep WR class at the top, so you never know. And it wouldn't be the first time the Eagles grabbed a free-falling talent at a need position in Round 1.
This seems to be a bit of a reach.
I'm not really buying the A.J. Brown stuff at this stage, but I guess stranger things have happened.
If Brown were to be moved, wide receiver would need to ve addresses, and still has to be. The team needs an upgrade at the No. 3 wide out position.
Quez Watkins and Olamide Zaccheaus are. Oth free agents.
