We’ve spent the last two days answering your questions and we’re still not finished.
Here’s Day 1.
Here’s Day 2.
And now we’ll get to the last of your questions. As always, thanks for getting them in.
Any insider info on how the Eagles will approach the draft this year? (Positions, players being looked at).— 🇺🇸 R.I.P. Neil Peart 🥁 🇮🇱🙏✝️ (@WrenchSwinger06) February 8, 2019
Any truth that the CBA may prevent the Eagles from franchising/trading Foles?
There are two questions. For the second one, I’ll direct you here.
As for the first question, I think the two places I’d start are on both lines. The Eagles put a huge priority on building through the lines and this is almost a perfect storm. They need help at offensive tackle, defensive tackle and defensive end, and this draft has plenty of them.
There could be as many as five or six offensive tackles to go in the first round and Howie Roseman already praised this class for being extremely deep on defensive linemen. One thought about a deep draft class at a position is to wait to get one, but that has backfired on teams before. Why not get a guy at 25 who would normally go in the teens?
In the modern era of Eagles football (from Andy Reid’s first year in 1999), the Eagles have drafted 17 players in the first round. Eleven of them have been linemen. In fact, 18 of the Eagles’ last 25 first-round picks have been linemen.
If todd gurley was available do you go for him (though based on bleacher report article about trade targets for each team)?— Minkus (@Minkuswazhere) February 8, 2019
I think this is the story you’re referencing. This ain’t gonna happen. If the Rams traded Gurley, they’d have to eat a ton of dead money. And even if the Rams were going to trade Gurley, the Eagles aren’t going to shell out assets to take on a contract of that magnitude for that position. Sure, he’d be great in the Eagles’ offense, but this isn’t happening.
Is Howie gonna 1up Elton this off-season?— TD (@TheTomDevlin) February 8, 2019
You know, it was funny, on Thursday when the Phillies and Sixers were making moves, I thought about how weird it was that Roseman wasn’t the one pulling the trigger. He’s aggressive when it comes to trades and I’ll assume he’ll have a few — especially during the draft — this offseason.
Keep Foles ,Trade Wentz....— John M Sabatini (@SabatiniDetails) February 8, 2019
This isn’t a question. And it’s also not happening.
