Eagles

Eagles fans had an emotional first night of the 2020 NFL Draft. 

With their sights set on three wide receivers - CeeDee Lamb, Jerry Jeudy, and Henry Ruggs - heading into the first round, the three staying on the board after the first 10 picks made it seem general manager Howie Roseman would have a shot at trading up for one of the three.

Oklahoma's Lamb was the last one standing, still available at No. 13... and then No. 14... and then No. 15... and then at No. 16, just five picks ahead of the Eagles' No. 21 selection.

Eagles fans thought Roseman might pull the trigger and trade up to No. 16 to take Lamb, and tension began to build:

Then, the unthinkable happened: the Falcons kept their pick but didn't take Lamb, which meant the Dallas Cowboys suddenly had the opportunity to use their No. 17 selection on the player Eagles fans wanted the most.

A nightmare scenario, to be certain.

Jerry Jones pushed the button, adding Lamb to a Dallas offense that will likely have Philly shaking its collective head for years, and Eagles fans... didn't take it well:

After that absolute rollercoaster of emotions, by the time the Eagles announced their own surprising pick - wide receiver Jalen Reagor from TCU, instead of LSU wide receiver Justin Jefferson - Birds fans seemed pretty underwhelmed by the whole thing.

Good luck convincing fans this was the right move, Howie.
