After an exciting end to the season that featured winning four out of five final games, a surprise playoff berth, and an upset of the Bears in the Wild Card Round ... the Eagles’ offseason is here. A month ago, it felt like the Eagles were toast and due for a major rebuilding project this offseason. However, their spark to end the season gives some hope regarding a lot of the young talent on the team. With three picks in the first two rounds of the 2019 NFL Draft, the Eagles have a great opportunity to reload the roster through the draft. Since the playoffs are far from over, here is how the first 28 should play out.

  1. Arizona Cardinals- Nick Bosa, EDGE, Ohio State: The Cardinals could go in many directions with a depleted roster, but a Blue Chip defender is always a good place to start.
  2. San Francisco 49ers- Quinnen Williams, Defensive Lineman, Alabama: The silver lining to San Francisco’s lost season is a potentially elite defender for their young defense.
  3. New York Jets- Jonah Williams, Offensive Tackle, Alabama: Protecting Sam Darnold is paramount and Jonah Williams could be the answer.
  4. Oakland Raiders- Ed Oliver, Defensive Lineman, Houston: The Raiders should take advantage of their draft capital to rebuild their defense. Oliver is a massive starting piece.
  5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers- Clelin Ferrell, EDGE, Clemson: The Bucs have a really solid defensive line but a dynamic edge rusher would put them over the top.
  6. New York Giants- Dwayne Haskins, Quarterback, Ohio State: The Giants find the heir to Eli Manning in Haskins. He can start immediately or sit for a year.
  7. Jacksonville Jaguars- Kyler Murray, Quarterback, Oklahoma: Murray will do doubt be a polarizing prospect, but there’s no denying the Heisman winner’s talent at quarterback.
  8. Detroit Lions- Josh Allen, EDGE, Kentucky: The Lions need more juice on their defensive line and Allen can bring a ton of pass rushing ability.
  9. Buffalo Bills- DK Metcalf, Wide Receiver, Ole Miss: The Bills continue to bet on offensive potential with a 6’4” playmaker.
  10. Denver Broncos- Cody Ford, Offensive Tackle, Oklahoma: The Broncos could reach for a quarterback or they could continue to build their offense for when a quarterback eventually comes.
  11. Cincinnati Bengals- Devin White, Linebacker, LSU: The Bengals need some juice in their linebacking group. White is a stud.
  12. Green Bay Packers- Montez Sweat, EDGE, Mississippi State: The Packers continue to add young defenders, this time improving their defensive line.
  13. Miami Dolphins- Drew Lock, Quarterback, Missouri: Drew Lock has a lot to like as a quarterback and in Miami he might not need to be rushed into starting.
  14. Atlanta Falcons- Greedy Williams, Cornerback, LSU: The Falcons defense took a step back this year. Greedy Williams is a young playmaker who could add a lot of speed and tenacity to the Falcons secondary.
  15. Washington Football Team- Deionte Thompson, Safety, Alabama: Washington adds a rangy playmaker to their secondary.
  16. Carolina Panthers- Greg Little, Offensive Tackle, Ole Miss: The Panthers must prioritizing protecting Cam Newton.
  17. Cleveland Browns- Deandre Baker, Cornerback, Georgia: Pairing DeAndre Baker with Denzel Ward would make the Browns defense scary.
  18. Minnesota Vikings- Dalton Risner, Offensive Tackle, Kansas State: Minnesota’s line proved vulnerable this year. They need to add a long term answer.
  19. Tennessee Titans- Jeffrey Simmons, Defensive Lineman, Mississippi State: The Titans add a versatile, stingy lineman to a solid young front.
  20. Pittsburgh Steelers- N’Keal Harry, Wide Receiver, ASU: With Antonio Brown likely out, the Steelers can maintain a dynamic receiving group with N’Keal Harry, Juju Smith-Schuster and James Washington.
  21. Seattle Seahawks- Yodney Cajuste, Offensive Tackle, WVU: Seattle upgrades their turnstile offensive line.
  22. Baltimore Ravens- Marquise Brown, Wide Receiver, Oklahoma: The Ravens need legitimate perimeter playmakers on offense. Brown might be small, but his impact won’t be.
  23. Houston Texans- David Edwards, Offensive Line, Wisconsin: Deshaun Watson got sacked enought times last year to make David Carr sweat. The Texans have to keep their young star upright.
  24. Oakland Raiders (Via Bears: Dexter Lawrence, Defensive Tackle, Clemson: The Raiders get lucky and draft another stud defensive lineman to pair with Ed Oliver.
  25. Philadelphia Eagles- Jachai Polite, EDGE, Florida: The Eagles could go in many directions here, but any time you can add a speedy edge rusher; you gotta do it. Brandon Graham is likely on the outs as a free agent, Derek Barnett is returning from injury and the team will need someone to rotate in with Michael Bennett at defensive end. Polite has sky high potential and instant impact ability. The Eagles might entertain getting a cornerback here, but with Polite on the board they should sprint to the podium.
  26. Indianapolis Colts- Jaylon Ferguson, EDGE, LaTech: One of the more underrated prospects and players over the last few years. Jaylon Ferguson has been a star his whole career and he should climb like crazy this draft season.
  27. Oakland Raiders- Devin Bush, Linebacker, Michigan: The Raiders continue the defensive rebuild with adding a speedy, playmaking linebacker.
  28. Los Angeles Chargers- Christian Wilkins, Defensive Tackle: The Chargers have a great thing going with Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram on their defensive line. Put Christian Wilkins in the middle of that and it’ll be a mess for offenses.
