Philadelphia Eagles. DeVonta Smith. 19. player. 54. . Wide Receiver

The Philadelphia Eagles have not gotten out to a hot start to the 2020 NFL season, but somehow, based on how bad the NFC East is, they are currently in first place with only one win. Carson Wentz has struggled big time, and injuries have hurt, so it will be interesting to see how the rest of their season plays out.

Staying with the offense, Jalen Hurts could end up supplanting Wentz, but either way, they need more talent at wide receiver. Jalen Reagor was a nice get last year, and by bringing in DeVonta Smith with a first round pick in 2021, they have a dynamic young duo at the position for years to come.

New Orleans Saints. Rashod Bateman. 20. player. 15. . Wide Receiver

The New Orleans Saints are starting to move in the right direction, and is Drew Brees continues to play this way, they should be back in the playoff mix. The Saints have talent on both sides of the ball to make a serious run, but they need star wide receiver Michael Thomas to get healthy enough to make a major impact.

In terms of that position group, Thomas needs some help, and Rashod Bateman from Minnesota would be a perfect compliment to him in the passing game. New Orleans needs to add depth, and this is a draft class loaded with wide receiver talent, so Bateman at No. 20 overall could end up being a steal.

48. . Edge. Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Aidan Hutchinson. 21. player

Fresh off a five-touchdown performance, Tom Brady has his Tampa Bay Buccaneers looking like a contender in the NFC South. Father Time looked to be slowing Brady down after his Week 1 showing, but he is back to throwing darts all over the field, and has his best compliment of weapons that he has had in quite some time.

On defense, the Bucs should look to add more talent on the edge, as Jason Pierre-Paul is getting up there in age, and there are some elite edge rushers in this draft class. Aidan Hutchinson is a guy who can be incredible disruptive in the passing game, and adding him to a group that gets some good push already makes Tampa Bay elite up front next season.
