During the 2021 NFL offseason, Howie Roseman was able to trade Carson Wentz and land a pre-draft deal with the Dolphins, resulting in three first-round picks in the 2022 NFL Draft, and after listening to his combine and owners meeting press conferences, the writing was on the wall for more big trades.
The Eagles are technically still in the midst of a rebuild and although they made the postseason, the 2021 campaign was still supposed to be about seeing what they had at quarterback and other key positions.
The lack of star power at the quarterback is giving Hurts another year as the starter, but the pressure will continue to build after Roseman moved one of his coveted 2022 assets in hopes of even more assets for 2023.
After swapping picks with the Saints, Roseman could still have dreams of a once-in-a-lifetime pass rusher, and the 2023 draft could offer at a minimum, seven quarterbacks for Philadelphia and other teams to start targeting.
If Philadelphia dreams of an all-world running back or stud wide receiver, an extra first-round pick would be gold.
It’s never too early for mock drafts and we’ve rounded up some of the early 2023 projections and the Eagles once again reloaded in a big way.
