A series of shrewd moves gave the Eagles control of the 2022 NFL Draft with three first-round picks.
If GM Howie Roseman believes Jalen Hurts is the Eagles’ quarterback of the future, he could use a “draft and develop” strategy that enables the core of the team to grow together and eventually compete for titles.
If Roseman has doubts about Hurts’ long-term potential, he’ll parlay the picks into a blue-chip quarterback — Russell Wilson or Deshaun Watson (legal situation pending) — to make an immediate run at the title.
Considering the last two Super Bowl champions made a series of aggressive moves to build championship rosters, the Eagles might be compelled to roll the dice in an attempt to swiftly vault to the top of the NFC.
Roseman has shown a fearless approach to team-building in the past, but the football world is paying close attention to see if the Eagles’ general manager will play it safe this offseason or go for broke.
