NFL Draft Trade Rumors: Eagles Have Been Very Active

The draft is almost here and the rumors are out in full force.

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

According to Derrick Gunn of CSN Philly, Eagles general manager Howie Roseman informed him that "he's made calls, teams seem willing to move around." OK, so that's not exactly revealing... it's probably what any NFL GM is going to be doing tonight. But what is interesting is a tweet from Ian Rapoport of NFL Network confirming the Eagles have been "very active" in regards to moving around the board. Get excited!

Why this rumor makes sense

The Eagles only have six picks in what's considered to be a deep draft. It wouldn't be surprising to see them trade down and acquire more. Then again, the cost of moving up could be relatively cheap if everyone is so desperate to move down. Roseman did say last week that the Eagles are not afraid to move up despite a limited number of picks.

Why this rumor doesn't make sense

Well, I mean, every team should be at least making phone calls. It would be irresponsible not to. This report hardly ensures the Eagles won't stay at No. 22.



The Eagles won't be shy to move around should the right deal come along, but I don't see them aggressively trying to trade up or trade down. Staying the course and picking at No. 22 could be the best move.
