Day 3 Preview

Posted: May 1st, 2021 | Author: | Filed under: Philadelphia Eagles | Comments Off on Day 3 Preview

Day 3 of the NFL draft is crucial. This is where teams have the most picks and can really bolster a roster. You aren’t looking for starters with each pick. You are hoping to find them of course, but also want good role players and backups to develop.

Let’s look at the Eagles picks so far.

1 – WR DeVonta Smith – Alabama
2 – OL Landon Dickerson – Alabama
3 – DL Milton Williams – Louisiana Tech

The Eagles added a playmaking receiver, a future starter at guard or center and a versatile, disruptive DL.

Here is the updated depth chart.

WR  Travis Fulgham ..… J.J. Arcega-Whiteside
WR  DeVonta Smith …… Quez Watkins …….. John Hightower
WR  Jalen Reagor ……. Greg Ward
QB  Jalen Hurts …….. Joe Flacco
RB  Miles Sanders ..… Boston Scott … Jordan Howard … Jason Huntley
TE  Dallas Goedert …… Jason Croom …… Caleb Wilson
LT  Jordan Mailata …….… Andre Dillard
LG  Isaac Seumalo …….. Nate Herbig
OC  Jason Kelce ………. Luke Juriga
RG  Brandon Brooks … Landon Dickerson ….. Matt Pryor
RT  Lane Johnson ……. Jack Driscoll

DE  Brandon Graham …. Josh Sweat
DT  Fletcher Cox ……….. Milton Williams …… T.Y. McGill
DT  Javon Hargrave …… Hassan Ridgeway…… Raequan Williams
DE  Derek Barnett ……… Joe Ostman
WB Eric Wilson ……… Davion Taylor …… Rashad Smith
MB T.J. Edwards ……. Shaun Bradley ….. Joe Bachie
SB  Alex Singleton ….. Genard Avery
SS  K’Von Wallace ….. Andrew Adams ….. Elijah Riley
FS  Anthony Harris …. Marcus Epps ……… Grayland Arnold
CB  Darius Slay ……… Michael Jacquet
CB  Craig James ……… Kevon Seymour
NB  Avonte Maddox

P Arryn Siposs
K Jake Elliott
LS Rick Lovato


The picks:

4 – 123
5 – 150
6 – 189
6 – 191
6 – 224
6 – 225
7 – 234
7 – 240

The Eagles need to draft a couple of CBs. After that, focus on adding the best players.

Targets for the 4th round.

QB – Ian Book
RB – Michael Carter, Kenneth Gainwell
TE – Brevin Jordan
OL – James Hudson, D’Ante Smith, Jaylon Moore, Brenden Jaimes, Trey Smith, Deonte Brown, Drew Dalman
DE – Rashad Weaver, Jordan Smith, Cameron Sample
DT – Daviyon Nixon, Tommy Togiai, Marlon Tuipulotu, Jay Tufele
LB – Jabril Cox, Dylan Moses, Buddy Johnson, Derrick Barnes
S – Jamar Johnson, Hamsah, Nasirldeen, Ar’Darius Washington, Tyree Gillespie, James Wiggins
CB – Robert Rochell, Keith Taylor, Shaun Wade, Zech McPhearson, Tay Gowan, Tre Brown, Thomas Graham, Marco Wilson

I left off WR because I’m not sure the Eagles will want to add to that spot after taking Smith and 3 guys last year. That’s a lot of youth already in place.

Here are the 5 guys I would target:

LB Jabril Cox
CB Keith Taylor
CB Zech McPhearson
S Jamar Johnson
DE Rashad Weaver

There are good players to be had. Part of me would love to see the team add RB Michael Carter or Kenneth Gainwell at 123. Those guys would be a lot of fun to watch in midnight green.


I expect the Eagles to trade TE Zach Ertz today. Would a 5th round pick be enough? The Eagles might prefer to get a pick next year.


Howie Roseman has traded for veterans during the draft (Hasaan Ridgeway, Marquise Goodwin). You wonder if he might try to land a veteran CB today. I’m not sure if any team is looking to move someone, but Howie will talk to teams to see what’s out there.
