Philadelphia Eagles Post-Draft Team Guide

The Eagles are a team currently mired in change and, as recent reports from outlets such as The Athletic indicate, a power struggle within the organization. Finding success on the field with so much of the team hierarchy not rowing in the same direction is often rare—but not impossible. The good news for Philadelphia is that the team has been able to allocate significant future resources to help the team boost its talent. 

The objective of Philadelphia’s rebuild appears rooted in the NFL draft with two confirmed first-round draft selections in 2022 and a third pending based on the availability and/or performance of Carson Wentz in Indianapolis. But the rebuilding process started this past week as the Eagles tackled their 2021 NFL Draft class head-on, showing a willingness under Howie Roseman to jump up and down the board as desired and attack talent.
