King: Eagles want to move up for a safety

New, comments

Peter King is reporting/speculating that the Eagles are looking to trade up in next week's draft to get a safety.

I think the Eagles want to come up.

Let me rephrase that -- I know they want to come up. The Eagles are in a very small club, teams that want to jump up from low in the first round to the upper half. I believe Philly wants one of the two safeties in the draft -- Eric Berry of Tennessee or Earl Thomas of Texas. With the 24th, 35th, 55th and 70th picks, the Eagles absolutely have the ammo to move up.

He goes on to speculate that a potential trading partner could be the Miami Dolphins at #12.
