ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter hopped on with the John Kincade Show to give a breakdown on the Eagles move up to 10 where they took wide receiver DeVonta Smith. Schefter broke down Howie’s great night.
As for when Howie decided to move up, it actually wasnt when the Broncos took Patrick Surtain.
“They actually started talking to the Cowboys at like, pick 7” Schefter said “And most teams call everyone just in case. And the Eagles did all that. The Eagles spoke to the Giants earlier in the week about trading up.”
And like many Eagles fans this morning, Schefter gave Howie Roseman a lot of credit.
“They got DeVonta Smith who, I think they probably wouldve taken (at pick 6) and they got at least one extra first round pick next year. Thats what you call manipulating the draft”
