Eagles looking to move up?

New, comments

It's always hard to separate fact from fiction leading up to the draft, but in the interest of getting all the reports out there... ESPN is reporting that the Eagles are trying to move up.

The Philadelphia Eagles are exploring the possibility of jumping up from the No. 19 overall pick. According two general managers from two other teams, the Eagles have made it known they would consider moving into a spot somewhere around the No. 10 to No. 15 area.

The presumption is the Eagles are targeting Pittsburgh offensive tackle Jeff Otah. But getting him might require the Eagles to get closer to No. 10. The Eagles likely will have to get in the top 12 because Carolina (No. 13) and Chicago (No. 14) are very possible landing spots for Otah.

Is Otah the guy they want, or is this just typical Eagles front office trickery? We'll know in a few hours...
