Tired of the conventional wisdom picks of whom the Eagles will snag at No, 12 tomorrow night like DeVonta Smith, Jaylen Waddle or Jaycee Horn?
Round 1, No. 16* – Kwity Paye, DE, Michigan
*Arizona trades No. 160 and a 2022 third-round pick to the Eagles for No. 12
Howie Roseman has his choice of Devonta Smith or Jaylen Waddle at No. 12, but the Cardinals call looking to move up.
They offer a fifth (No. 160) this year and a third next year so that they can take Waddle.
The Eagles take the deal, hoping that Smith falls to 16.
He does not.
They debate Paye (6-3, 261 pounds) and South Carolina CB Jaycee Horn at 16 and ultimately land on Paye.
Derek Barnett and Josh Sweat are free agents after the 2021 season, and Brandon Graham will be 34 going into 2022. Roseman decides he needs to restock the cupboard at defensive end.
