Last season, the Philadelphia Eagles came out of nowhere to win their first Super Bowl. What made it even more impressive was the fact they accomplished it with backup quarterback Nick Foles under center against the New England Patriots in the big game. All Foles did was win Super Bowl MVP honors, and is now an absolute legend in the City of Brotherly Love.
In the 2018 NFL Draft, the Eagles traded out of the first round, sending pick No. 32 to the Baltimore Ravens, who drafted quarterback Lamar Jackson with the pick. In 2019, the Eagles should focus their draft on a running back in the first round, as Darren Sproles is not going to play forever. The pick should be a guy like Damien Harris, who should help lead the Alabama Crimson Tide back to the College Football Playoff this season.
Harris is an explosive runner, and would be a nice compliment to Jay Ajayi. When it comes to the Eagles, they have the talent on both sides of the ball to be good for a very long time. It is early, but we are going to go chalk and say they win the NFC again in 2018, especially with a healthy Carson Wentz back under center. Foles is good, but the feeling is he caught lightning in a bottle last season.
