The Philadelphia Eagles have 22nd overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft and have some needs they need to address. So the FanSided team has come up with a couple of potential draft day trades that could favor the Eagles.

The first of which would be to trade up, an obvious move for a team in the bottom half of the first-round, but who would the Eagles target. They’d like to get LSU wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr, to replace DeSean Jackson who was released and signed with the Washington Redskins.

Beckham is a relatively small receiver, like DeSean, and he has quick hands and feet helping him avoid being jammed at the line of scrimmage. He has has great leaping ability to contend for balls in the air with cornerbacks and could help fill the void created by DeSean’s release.

The second idea could be to trade down in an effort to compile picks. While the Eagles would love to land Beckham, trading down is an option because of the depth at the position in the draft. They might not get someone as talented as Beckham but the could certainly get someone who could contribute right away, and add another pick or two in the process.
