#249: 2021 Dash To The Draft Divisional Tour (NFC East with Cole Thompson)

1. Just three years after winning Super Bowl LII, the Philadelphia Eagles appear to be in full rebuild mode. They have a very good chance at owning three first-round picks next year because of the Carson Wentz trade, and the trade with the Dolphins that saw them go from the 6th overall pick to the 12th. As a result, some believe the Eagles are 100% out on taking a QB in the first round. That said, ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reported over the weekend that many around the NFL still expect the Eagles to select a QB at some point in the draft. And we all know Howie Roseman has a penchant for making bold trades. Given all that, would you be surprised if the Eagles decided to use all the draft capital they’ve accumulated to trade back into the top-10 if a certain QB falls past the top-five?

2. When it comes to the Cowboys, most expect them to go defense early, particularly at cornerback. However, you also just paid a fortune to Dak Prescott and that once-heralded offensive line isn’t what it used to be. Travis Frederick has retired and Tyron Smith is aging and breaking down. IF Penei Sewell and/or Rashawn Slater are available at 10 (possible, but unlikely), would you prioritize them over any defender if you were Jerry Jones?

3.  Joe Judge is quietly building a solid program with the Giants. They have a pretty stout defense and the addition of Kenny Golladay in free agency gives them a very promising stable of offensive weapons, especially if Saquon Barkley stays out of the trainer’s room. That said, how the Giants fare this season will almost entirely depend on whether Daniel Jones (or as we call him on this podcast, “Steely Dan”), takes a big leap forward. At 11 overall, do you think the Giants should address the main weakness left on their defense (EDGE) or potentially add another weapon to help Daniel Jones, especially if either Jaylen Waddle or Devonta Smith fall?

4. Recent buzz has the Washington Football Team as a top candidate (if not THE top candidate) to make a huge move up the board for a QB. However, let’s say Trey Lance and Justin Fields don’t fall far enough for them to pull the trigger, yet Mac Jones slips past the top-10. Should they move up to secure him in that scenario, especially if they believe he can stabilize their QB situation for at least the next 5-7 seasons?
