Evaluating the positions with the highest chance of being selected as the 22nd pick

Published on


With the NFL draft less than 11 days away, speculation is running high about who the Philadelphia Eagles will select with their first-round pick. They have been making moves this offseason, adding Saquon Barkley, Bryce Huff, and Kenny Pickett, among others. However, they have also seen players like Haason Reddick leave the team.

The Eagles may not have multiple first-round picks this year, but they do have four picks in the first 120 selections, including two key picks at numbers 50 and 53. General Manager Howie Roseman is known for building through the trenches, and with players like Lane Johnson getting older, they may look to find his eventual replacement.

Players like Graham Barton, Troy Fautanu, JC Latham, and Tyler Guyton could be on Philadelphia’s radar. They already have Bryce Huff on a three-year deal and Josh Sweat on the final year of his contract, but they may still be looking to bolster their pass rush. Names like Laiatu Latu, Jared Verse, Dallas Turner, and Chop Robinson could be options for the Eagles.

In the linebacking corps, the Eagles added Devin White and Zack Baun in free agency. Still, they may want to add more depth and talent to the position. Players like Ederrin Cooper or Jeremiah Trotter could be potential selections for Philadelphia.

In the secondary, veterans Darius Slay and James Bradberry are getting up there in age. While players like Eli Ricks, Zech McPhearson, and Kelee Ringo have shown promise, the Eagles may want to bring in a top talent at cornerback. Cooper DeJean, Terrion Arnold, or Quinyon Mitchell could be options to consider.

On the offensive side of the ball, the Eagles have A.J. Brown locked up for three more years and DeVonta Smith poised to receive a new contract. However, they may still look to add another dynamic wide receiver to complement their offense. Players like Keon Coleman, Troy Franklin, Roman Wilson, and others could be targets in the draft.

With the addition of Saquon Barkley to the running back room, the Eagles have a solid one-two punch with Kenneth Gainwell. Still, with Gainwell entering the final year of his contract, they may look to add another running back in the draft. Names like Jaylen Wright, Blake Corum, Bucky Irving, Trey Benson, and Marshawn Lloyd could be considered by Philadelphia.

Overall, the Eagles have some key positions they may target in the first round of the draft. Whether they go for an offensive lineman, pass rusher, cornerback, wide receiver, or running back, the team will be looking to add young talent to their roster as they continue to build for the future. Stay tuned as the NFL draft approaches to see who the Eagles ultimately select with their picks.
