Report: Eagles Could Look to Move Back Into Top 10
The NFL Draft is less than two weeks away, but the rumors continue to swirl. The Eagles moved from No. 6 back to No. 12 adding a 2022 first-round pick in the process, but still might have another move up their sleeves.
According to a story in The Athletic on Friday from Ben Standing, the Eagles could be looking to move into the Top 10, while adding more assets. The articles collected information from league general managers, executives, coaches, scouts and agents.
As for the trade market, the Eagles are exploring a move into the top 10 despite having just dropped from No. 6 to No. 12. Having acquired a first-round pick in 2022 from the Dolphins, the Eagles could move up and still net more assets.
If the Eagles were to make a move into the Top 10, the likely spots would be No. 8 (Carolina) or No. 9 (Denver) and could be looking to land a player like LSU wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase is he were to fall or Alabama wide out Jaylen Waddle.
If the Eagles want to make the move up to No. 8 or 9 they have the ammunition to do so, holding the two, third-round picks in this years draft, which should be plenty to move up four spots.
The team could also use tight end Zach Ertz in a deal if they wanted to try and move up a few spots and Carolina is a team that could have interest in the record setting tight end.
