Philadelphia Eagles 2018 NFL Draft War Room

The Philadelphia Eagles are the reigning Super Bowl champions! Now that the offseason has come fast and furious, it’s time for the Eagles to restock adding to what is already a deep young core. This is an important draft for Philadelphia considering that Carson Wentz will start to become expensive after his rookie deal expires. It will be important for the Eagles to hit on these picks to replenish the team with young players when Wentz needs an extension.

In the here and now, the Eagles have the best overall roster in football. Howie Roseman is by far the best general manager in the sport and is the sole reason why the Eagles are going to be a force for the next decade. His recent draft track record is unbelievable. Whether it’s moving up for Carson Wentz or dealing away Sam Bradford for a first round pick that turned into Derek Barnett, Roseman has been on fire since Chip Kelly was exiled. With the last pick in every single round, what can we expect from the Philadelphia Eagles in the 2018 NFL Draft?

It’s impossible to know who will be available with the 32 pick in the first round. Everything outside of quarterback and tight end is probably in play with the first round selection. My guess is that Howie Roseman may be targeting an offensive lineman at some point. It could be the first round. Jason Peters is on his last legs and Big V was a big black hole at left tackle even during their Super Bowl run. Mike McGlinchey may be off the board by this time but he is a Philadelphia native that could be a logical fit to take over for Jason Peters in a year. McGlinchey will probably be off the board so keep an eye on Isaiah Wynn from Georgia. Wynn will likely be a guard a the next level but just like Dion Dawkins a year ago, Wynn looks like a star in the making.

In round 2, the Eagles could be looking for a linebacker. Roseman hate Mychal Kendricks and has been shopping him for what seems like forever. Yes, I’m going to give the Eagles Shaquem Griffin. With Jordan Hicks coming back, Griffin can be deploy as that weakside linebacker in the 4-3 Jim Schwartz too. With Nigel Bradham coming back on a new deal, Philadelphia still needs a linebacker or two. Griffin is the perfect linebacker for this system. If the Eagles want him, this is the price they’re going to have to pay because it’s not likely that he makes it at the end of the third round after he ran a 4.38.

In round 3, the Eagles will probably just go the best available route. Will they add ANOTHER defensive lineman? You also can’t have too many corners. With a roster so deep, it’s possible to wonder if Roseman will trade up for an elite talent in the first round.
