While speculation as to what the Philadelphia Eagles would do with the number 6 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft was rampant, things have become even crazier. ESPN’s Adam Schefter has reported that Philly, in a move surprising to most, has actually traded the pick before the upcoming draft. If you were questioning this team’s front office before you are doing so even more now.
The parameters of the deal are as follows Philadelphia sends the No. 6 and No. 156 overall picks to the Dolphins in exchange for No. 12 overall, No. 123 overall, and a 2022 first-round pick. The best part could be future ramifications. Because, if things work in the Eagles favor they could potentially have three first round picks next off season. Thanks in large part to the deal that sent Carson Wentz to Indy. So here’s to hoping.
