Why Eagles will be in the NFL draft class of 2019
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz is the top prospect in the 2019 NFL Draft class.
And now, the Philadelphia Eagles are preparing to have one of the biggest names in the game go on to be the next NFL franchise’s franchise quarterback.
The Eagles have been in the news for months now about their quarterback situation, and in July, the team was forced to release former No. 1 overall pick Carson Wentgens father.
He’s a third-year pro from South Carolina who played two seasons in the SEC with the University of South Carolina.
The Eagles were not happy with his decision, and eventually, they decided to trade him.
The Philadelphia Eagles will draft their 2018 first-round pick, the No. 8 overall pick, in the 2020 NFL Draft, a source told ESPN.
The draft will take place on July 28, 2020 in Philadelphia.
The draft pick is being used for a number of things, including Wentz.
It’s being used to sign free agents like wide receiver Nelson Agholor and safety Eric Rowe, as well as the possibility of acquiring a first-rounder, a person familiar with the decision told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
The person requested anonymity because the decision is confidential.
The No. 3 overall pick is the first of the draft, and the Eagles will use that to draft a quarterback in the first round.
The 2019 draft is set for June 22, 2019.
Wentz, a former quarterback at South Carolina, was the second overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.
He was a second-round draft pick of the Eagles in 2017 and was drafted No. 15 overall by the Washington Redskins.
