EAGLES TRADE DOWN TO 8 AND STILL DRAFT TE KYLE PITTS IN MOCK!

Says Pro Football Focus:

8. EAGLES (VIA CAROLINA): TE KYLE PITTS, FLORIDA

It cannot be understated how genius it was for the Eagles to lose their Week 17 matchup against the Washington Football Team.

In doing so, they leap-frogged three teams desperate for their next franchise quarterback — the Lions, Panthers and Broncos.

Recent comments from the Eagles about prioritizing building around Jalen Hurts could be a smokescreen, and they may stay at No. 6 and draft Justin Fields to be their next franchise quarterback or even make a move up.

But they’re in an exceptional position to trade down and recoup major draft capital as they look to rebuild and get younger at several positions.

Zach Ertz will likely be traded this offseason, potentially before the draft on April 29.

Kyle Pitts and Dallas Goedert will form the new unstoppable tight end duo for the Eagles.

Pitts’ season at Florida was nothing short of remarkable — he put up 17.9 yards per reception and was deployed all over the field. His 59 snaps lined up out wide was third among all tight ends, and he’s a willing inline blocker, as well.
