There's one thing you can usually count on when it’s draft season, and that is the quiet emanating from NFL franchises afraid any action, one whisper might tip off another to their plans. The Philadelphia Eagles are no different in that respect. In fact, they’re one of the best at staying tight-lipped when they want.
The downside is that leaves us—analysts, members of the media and the general public—room only to speculate. What will the Eagles do? What won’t they do? Your guess might be as good as mine, but I do know one thing for sure.
The Eagles don’t have any intention of telling any of us who or what position they intend to draft in the first round, who’s calling about trading up or down or anything in general about their feelings or blueprints heading into this event. That means you’ll have to take my word for it. Or you can go see a psychic, I guess.
There are a lot of theories out there about how the Eagles will approach the annual selection process, some better than others. Let’s see if we can’t tell a little fact from fiction in some of the buzz that’s going around as we approach the draft just four weeks away.
