The Philadelphia Eagles were not supposed to beat the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl, but they did just that in February. The Eagles were led by backup quarterback Nick Foles, who ended up being named the game’s MVP. As they head into next season, the team has already gotten better on the defensive side of the ball, bringing in players to bolster the defensive line.
When it comes to their first round pick, Philadelphia should look to add talent to their wide receiving corps. James Washington from Oklahoma State is a good-looking prospect, who is the kind of game-breaker the Eagles need. Washington can really take the lid off of a defense, and the Eagles have the right quarterback to get him the ball deep next season.
The Eagles shocked the world last season, and it looks like Carson Wentz is getting healthy ahead of schedule. Torrey Smith played a big role for them last season, and he will certainly be missed. Adding Washington could soften that blow, and give them another playmaker in an offense that should be solid once again.
