EVEN THE EAGLES CAN’T FAIL TO DRAFT TOP-NOTCH RECEIVER TONIGHT!

By Peter Brennan

Many NFL draft analysts consider this year’s wide receiver crop to be among the deepest in years, led by Alabama’s Jerry Jeudy and Henry Ruggs III (above), and Oklahoma’s CeeDee Lamb.

But the teams at the top of the draft have more pressing needs.

The mock drafts largely have a rapid run on receivers beginning as early as the 11th pick by the New York Jets. Some receiver-needy teams with picks in the 20s, like the Eagles and the Minnesota Vikings, could move up to pass other teams that may select receivers, including the Las Vegas Raiders, San Francisco 49ers, Denver Broncos and Dallas Cowboys.

But the sense that teams could find first-round talent at the receiving position in the second round has some forecasters suspecting teams could look to other positions early on.

“Sometimes the draft falls weird, and the incredible excess at receiver in this draft makes so many teams with wideout needs say they’ll wait till the second and third rounds,” Peter King wrote at NBC Sports.
