Eagles get the deal they’ve been looking for
Posted On July 27, 2021
Eagles got the deal that was all they needed to get into the second round of the draft, landing a high-end quarterback prospect in Carson Wentz with the No. 1 overall pick.
Wentz was one of the best quarterbacks in the draft at the position and had a lot of work to do.
The Eagles had a chance to get a top-five pick and now they have to figure out how to fit Wentz into the offense they hope to have for the next few seasons.
But the trade will allow the Eagles to give Wentz a big-play threat to throw to in the passing game and give him a chance at building off of the work he did as a rookie.
Wentaz completed 62.4 percent of his passes for 3,731 yards, 24 touchdowns and 14 interceptions last season.
The 6-foot-4, 215-pound quarterback is the top quarterback prospect the Eagles have had in recent years.
The Philadelphia Eagles traded down from No. 2 to select Carson Wentaz with the pick in the second Round of the NFL Draft.
(AP) The Eagles got what they wanted from Wentz when they traded down to pick him with the fourth overall pick in this year’s draft.
They did not have to do it again in the third round.
It is the second time in as many drafts that the Eagles traded up for Wentz, who was selected by the Eagles with the first overall pick last year.
Wentzy, who played at Central Michigan, was one the best quarterback prospects in the class of 2016.
He was one year removed from being a first-team All-Big Ten selection and had some great success as a quarterback.
Wentza had a career season in 2018, leading the Big Ten with 2,818 passing yards and throwing 26 touchdowns.
Wentzag, a 6-2, 210-pounder from Illinois, is a big, physical athlete who also ran a 4.53-second 40-yard dash.
He has the arm strength and athleticism to be a quality NFL quarterback.
The Jets traded up from No!
2 to draft Carson Wentzman with the second pick in last year’s NFL Draft, and the Eagles got their man.
Wentzman has a chance for greatness in the NFL.
He’s a big time football player who can get out of his breaks, making him one of these quarterbacks who could be a star in the league.
Wentzos arm strength will make him a better NFL quarterback than the young players on the roster right now.
The Giants traded up two spots to select Dak Prescott with the 14th pick in a deal that sent defensive tackle Eli Apple and safety Eric Reid to the Giants.
Prescott, who had a big impact on the Giants defense, has big potential.
He is a 6.9-meter, 227-pound defensive tackle who will be a physical, physical defender at the next level.
The Titans drafted QB Marcus Mariota with the 22nd pick in 2018.
He will be one of those big-time NFL quarterbacks that is really, really good.
Mariota has big upside, but he is not as fast as a lot to come.
The Raiders drafted QB Blake Bortles with the 49th pick.
He also has big-tent potential.
Bortlis could be one the most athletic quarterbacks in this draft.
He had a really good senior season at Ole Miss in 2017, where he threw for 2,619 yards, 21 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.
Bortslis had a very good junior season, throwing for 2.766 yards, 20 touchdowns and nine interceptions.
He could be an outstanding NFL quarterback in his second season.
Wentzon has the ability to be one or two of those quarterbacks.
The Bills selected QB Tre Mason with the 46th pick, and he was a bit of a surprise to a lot people in the early rounds of the 2018 NFL Draft due to his size.
But Mason has a lot going for him.
He played with some of the top offensive lines in the country, including the Eagles’ line, and had an excellent season.
Mason had a decent junior season in 2019, completing 67.5 percent of passes for 2 to 2.971 yards and 15 touchdowns.
The Packers selected QB Aaron Murray with the 60th pick and he is a little smaller than Bortels, but his arm strength is there.
He throws a lot like Bortz, with a good amount of accuracy.
The Bears selected RB Matt Dayes with the 62nd pick, a little less than half the size of Bortls, but also with more arm strength.
Dayes had a good senior year in 2020, rushing for 1,087 yards and 12 touchdowns.
Day is going to be an important part of the Bears offense for years to come, especially with the new offensive coordinator in Kyle Shanahan.
The Browns selected DE/OLB Jourdan Lewis with the 65th pick to help fill a hole on the defensive line.
Lewis is a very physical player who also had a great senior year
