The Philadelphia Eagles got their WR in the first round by taking TCU’s Jalen Reagor with the 21st overall pick.

So now what? The Eagles head into Day 2 with a pick in both the second and third rounds. The next time general manager Howie Roseman and the organization will be on the clock will be 21 selections into Round 2, with pick No. 53.

The way the bottom half of the first round fell is going to really help the Eagles land a good prospect with their second pick.

What are some of their options? These top-21 prospects would be the most ideal selections:

1. LSU CB Kristian Fulton

2. Alabama S Xavier McKinney 

3. Alabama CB Trevon Diggs

4. LSU S Grant Delpit 

5. Penn State WR K.J. Hamler 

6. Southern Illinois S Jeremy Chinn 

7. LSU IOL Lloyd Cushenberry 

8. Tennessee DE Darrell Taylor

9. Mississippi LB Willie Gay Jr. 

10. Minnesota S Antoine Winfield Jr.

11. Colorado WR Laviska Shenault

12. Penn State DE Yetur Gross-Matos 

13. Michigan DE Josh Uche 

14. Lenoir-Rhyne S Kyle Dugger

15. Georgia IOL Jonah Jackson

16. Temple IOL Matt Hennessy

17. Oregon LB Troy Dye 

18. California S Ashtyn Davis 

19. Clemson S K’Von Wallace

20. Utah CB Jaylon Johnson

21. Alabama DE Terrell Lewis

 

NOTES:

  • Not a bad looking list of available prospects. A ton of DB talent is available. One could justify many of these prospects should have gone Round 1. No safety being selected helps push a lot of versatile talent down the board, not to mention the likes of Kristian Fulton and Trevon Diggs still available at CB. Considering the Dallas Cowboys just added Oklahoma WR CeeDee Lamb to compliment Amari Cooper? The Eagles should continue to invest in the defensive backfield tonight.

 

  • The Eagles took care of the WR position by taking Reagor…..but could you imagine the threat of Reagor, DeSean Jackson, Miles Sanders, and either K.J. Hamler or Laviska Shenault? Will certainly be tempting if they are on the board.

 

  • Really like the group of edge-rushers left. The Eagles could use an explosive, potential-oozing DE with the uncertain future of Derek Barnett, and the continued aging of Brandon Graham. Darrell Taylor, Yetur Gross-Matos, Josh Uche, or Terrell Lewis all would fit the mold.

 

  • Plenty of interior OL help available if Howie Roseman wants to plan for the future behind C Jason Kelce. Only one IOL in Michigan’s Cesar Ruiz was selected in the first round.
