Eagles options going into Day 2 of the NFL Draft.

Last night the Philadelphia Eagles selected WR Jalen Reagor from TCU in the first round, to finally add some speed to their offense. By taking Reagor, the Eagles passed up on the likes of Justin Jefferson, a WR from LSU, Kenneth Murray, a LB from Oklahoma, and Patrick Queen, a linebacker from LSU, all of which at some point during the draft process were linked to the Eagles. 

Whether you agree with the selection or not, the Eagles were able to add a speed dimension to their offense and a playmaker that helps in Quarterback. Howie Roseman last night said “He fits our QB’s skill set. Our QB likes to throw the ball down the field.” Drafting Reagor will definitely help Carson but the Eagles still need to give their franchise QB more help. With two picks tonight, one in the second (53rd overall) and one in the third (103 overall), expect the Eagles to take at least one more receiver. 

There is plenty of talent remaining on the board both at the wide receiver and secondary positions. Some wide receiver names to watch for tonight are KJ Hamler from Penn State, Michael Pittman Jr. from USC, Tee Higgins from Clemson, and Laviska Shenault from Colorado. Should the Eagles elect to go defense in the second round, there is some first round talent that is still available. Defensive backs Kristian Fulton and Grant Delpit from LSU, and Trevon Diggs and Xavier McKinney from Alabama, would provide immediate help to the Eagles secondary. 

Some sleepers tonight include Iowa DE AJ Epenesa, Penn State Yetur Gross-Matos, LB Zack Baun from Wisconsin, and DT Justin Madubuike from Texas A&M. If one of these pass rushers falls, it would be hard for the Eagles to pass on them. With Brandon Graham getting older, drafting DE to pair with Derek Barnett in the future would provide them with stability on the defensive line.

  1. More Combinations

    #53 – Center/Guard – LLoyd Cushenberry – LSU (6-3 315lbs)
    #103 – WR Donovan Peoples-Jones – (6-2 215lbs)

    Looks like Eagles are actively looking to Trade last Years Top Pick LT Andre Dillard who they feel is just
    not a good fit, mature enough, mentally strong enough for the Eagles..
    Terrible Job Howie …
    Reports are a Deal in principle is set with the NY Jets as for a 3rd Round Pick .. Brutal after moving up in last Years Draft but if they feel hes not a good fit, then cut the chord now and no sense in keeping him around like they have with other miss-picks over the Years

  2. Eagles Trade OT Andre Dillard and Pick #103 to the NY Jets for their Pick #68 and a 3rd Round Pick in 2021 Draft

    Eagles now have the Following Selections for Friday

    #53 – DE Curtis Weaver – Boise State (6-2 265lbs)
    #68 – Safety Kyle Dugger – Lenoir-Rhyne (6-1 217lbs)

  3. Fraudman where are u seeing reports about the eagles wanting to move Dillard? Is this a fraudman rumor or is someone who knows something reporting it

  4. CBS Sports has had 2 articles in the last few days about the Concern the Eagles have with Dillard for their lack of preparation and due diligence with him is now blowing up and they’d rather cut the chord then carry him on the Roster for the remainder of his Rookie Deal
    thus creating a real need for a Starting LT for 2020
    We may see the Jason Peters resigned to a 1 Year Deal after the Draft by the Eagles who better do it fast as other Teams will be calling on Peters after this Draft Weekend
    This is why it’s been reported a few times this week of the Eagles interest in Redskins LT Trent Williams

  5. If that is true shame in them… if it’s just stirred up shit shame on whoever reported it. The Williams report turned out to be stirred up shit…
    Making a bad OL pick is even more devastating than any other position but QB…

  6. Tonight we will know for sure if they Draft a OT or make a Trade with the Skins for Trent Williams.
    If no OT is Drafted or no Trade made, then Dillard’s the LT..

    1. He’s a weapon for Wentz! Will play 12-15 plays per game with the expectation of a big play or two.
      That phrase, “we gotta make plays”… it has resonated with me this year…

  7. A toy for Wentz and Pederson to play with… Awesome! Hopefully so far two guys to make plays… perfect draft so far…

  8. Jalen Hurts lacks the Arm and Decisiveness to be an Effective NFL QB … I don’t t like this pick at all in the 2nd Round at #53 at all…
    Yes Hurts can run some Gadget Plays,Wildcat Formations here and there (2-3 plays a Game and not 12-15 as mentioned above but why use a 2nd Round Selection on a “gadget player” when there are so many other needs/positions that need upgrading makes little sense to me

    3rd Round Selection of LB D Taylor a reach too
    and will likely be a Special Teamer, tackling and game experience is not his strength though he’s athletic but short arms

    I give this Draft a “D” thus far and they better hit with their 3 Selections today in the 4th Round or this Team is fallen behind their NFC competition in terms of Talent

  9. 1. You never draft for need
    2. They are watching the trends in the NFL where you need to utilize your 53 man roster to make impact plays. It is that simple.
    3. Who the hell are you to grade anything…. you can’t give a grade if you’ve not mastered the subject your grading…. that’s in education 101

    1. .et me rephrase that… every position is a need every year so you are always filling needs…hence drafting hurts … he was at the top of their board

  10. Then their Draft Board is Wrong,Wrong, Wrong!!
    Howie is Selecting Players 30-40-50-60-70 Spots ahead of where they’re projected to go !!
    Where’s The Value!! BPA is Bullshit by this Group!!
