ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter did his weekly hit with the John Kincade Show (every Wednesday at 8:10) and Schefter previewed what we might see tomorrow in the NFL draft. Just a reminder that the Eagles hold the #12 pick, having traded down from 6.
Schefter discussed teams willing to move back, and the hype around TE/WR Kyle Pitts. But in terms of what the Eagles might do at pick 12….
“Most people have Patrick Surtain ticketed to Dallas at pick 10.” Schefter said, “the Eagles aren’t stupid. They know that. So if the Eagles want Surtain they have to trade up to either pick 8 or 9”
But what happens if the price to trade up is too rich for Howie? Would the Eagles trade back? Schefter added an interesting nuget from a team drafting behind the Birds.
“A team asked me if the Eagles would want an extra 1st rounder to trade back”
Schefter said he had no idea if the Eagles WOULD be interested in that, but you have to figure that a team giving up a 1st rounder to trade up is likely drafting pick 20 or later.
