Howie Roseman did not just hit an HR in the first round. It was a Kyle Schwarber-esque moonshot. Landing both Jalen Carter and Nolan Smith. Howie earned himself a long leash worth of goodwill from Eagles fans. Both Edge Rush and Interior Rush were needed for them coming into this draft, and they land two guys who many draft experts thought they may take at 10. But the work is not done. This is a very good roster, but there are some holes.
Even if those holes are very small. Howie has 4 more picks as of now, along with a ton of UDFAs he can sign after the draft. The good news is many of these holes, are not all that big. There are not many glaring issues on this team, and most of them are depth issues.
But just because there are not major needs on this team, does not mean there are no holes to fill. There are positions where they could get better, or deeper. So as we go into day 2 of the draft, let’s take a look at some of the holes the Eagles still have to fill. The places they could upgrade a starter, or maybe just add someone to strengthen the rotation, or maybe just get some depth in case of injury.
Here are 7 holes the Eagles should look to fill on days 2 and 3 of the draft:
