Even if the Eagles do re-sign quarterback Sam Bradford, they ought to take a QB with their No. 13 pick in April’s NFL draft.
So says NFL Network NFL Draft analyst Mike Mayock.
“If I’m the Eagles, my priority list is quarterback number one,” Mayock said today during a conference call with reporters. “I don’t know what they’re going to do with Sam Bradford, but they better figure it out.
“If they think there’s a franchise quarterback at No. 13, they better take him. My belief is that [Jared] Goff and [Carson] Wentz will be gone. The question then becomes, is Paxton Lynch [above] there?
“If Paxton Lynch is sitting there at 13, if they believe he’s the guy, they better take him. Even if he doesn’t play one snap this year, I think they have to take Lynch, or maybe a Connor Cook.
“If they think there’s a guy at 13 who is a franchise quarterback, I think everything else slides off the board. They have to take him.”
