Sports Illustrated's Peter King reports the Eagles are doing their "due diligence" on moving up from 22nd overall to the middle of the first round. King reports the Eagles have their eye on LSU wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. He also notes the price might be too high for the Eagles.
Philadelphia only has six picks in what is widely considered a very deep draft. They will likely look to add a wide receiver but the question remains whether or not they will take that guy in the first round. Up to seven wide receivers, Beckham, Sammy Watkins, Mike Evans, Brandin Cooks, Marquise Lee, Kelvin Benjamin and Cody Lattimer, are expected to be selected in the first round.
Many have talked about the Eagles moving back in the draft to get more picks. This has worked for teams in the past but it backfired with the Eagles during the Andy Reid era, specifically in 2007 when they traded their first round pick to the Cowboys who selected Anthony Spencer while the Eagles picked Kevin Kolb in the second round.
It should be noted that teams often try to leak false information to the media the week leading up to the draft to throw other teams off their scent. That being said, this report makes sense for a number of reasons. You be the judge of the validity of King's report.
The draft is always interesting so it is surely going to be a busy week.
