The Philadelphia Eagles are just days from being on the NFL draft clock and Howie Roseman will have a huge decision to make on the personnel front.
Roseman will indeed target a wide receiver or two with his 11 picks, but the questions and concerns center around who, when, and why.
The Eagles general manager is known for being an active participant on draft night and his perfection with the salary cap is second to none. It’s Roseman’s player analysis and penchant for missing on players that have some Eagles fans nervous.
Philadelphia has now drafted 11 wide receivers since Roseman became the Eagles general manager in 2010. As the 2021 draft approaches, Only Riley Cooper and Nelson Agholor can be deemed anything close to being successful on a regular basis.
