The Eagles were supposed to be embarking on a long-term rebuild with a new head coach in Nick Sirianni and a fresh start at quarterback with Jalen Hurts.
The Eagles used a 2020 second-round pick on Hurts and since the four games in 2020 weren’t a true gauge of his talents at quarterback, he was supposed to get the entire 2021 season to prove he’s the guy.
It appears Hurts is that and much more after Week 1 and with the Eagles passing on a quarterback in 2021, Philadelphia has started the process of building around Hurts and he now looks to be the signal-caller of the future.
Hurts being the answer at quarterback definitely helps since the 2022 NFL Draft class offers some interesting prospects, but none with the resume of Trevor Lawrence, Justin Fields, or Trey Lance.
Below we give an early look at the Eagles 2022 draft needs and who could be options for the Eagles and the possible three first-round picks depending on the Colts 2021 season.
