The draft is less than a week away, and the rumor mill is starting to pick up.

It would be nothing new to Eagles fans if the Birds traded up in the first round.

Lets take a look at a few candidates that they could trade up for.


Jared Verse

The edge rusher out of Florida State would bolster a position in need. The Eagles traded Haason Reddick, and they could use someone else in that room. Verse is coming off a season with 11 sacks, 15 QB hits, and 36 QB hurries. His production in college makes him a probable top-15 pick in this upcoming draft.

The Eagles need to acquire at least one defensive lineman who can play immediately. They will miss Haason Reddick’s production, so it would make sense for them to draft Verse in the first round.


Quinyon Mitchell

The Eagles need a young talent at the corner, and Quinyon Mitchell could be a guy they trade up for. Mitchell is coming off a year with 41 tackles, one interception, and 18 passes defended. He ran a 4.33 40-yard dash at the combine. His total combined score was first among all corners. He is someone that can step in and start right away.

If the Eagles don’t feel comfortable with James Bradberry playing the opposite of Slay anymore, Mitchell would be a good option to go with. If the Eagles wanted to trade up for Quinyon Mitchell, they would most likely have to move up into the 10-15 range.


There are plenty of ways this draft can go for the Eagles.
We all know Howie loves to make moves on draft day, and the Eagles could move up for one of these players next Thursday night.
