After cutting DeSean Jackson, the Eagles may be looking to draft his replacement.
Peter King of TheMMQB.com reports that the Eagles want in on the prime receiver action, and General Manager Howie Roseman is talking to at least two teams in the middle of the first round. The Eagles own the 22nd pick in the first round, and they may have eyes for a receiver who will be gone by then.
King surmises that LSU’s Odell Beckham is the receiver Philadelphia is thinking about trading up to draft, and that USC’s Marqise Lee would be their fallback option if they can’t get Beckham.
The kind of trade it would take to draft Sammy Watkins of Clemson would be too rich for the Eagles’ blood, and a trade up for Mike Evans of Texas A&M would likely be too much for Philadelphia as well. But a receiver like Beckham, Lee, Brandin Cooks of Oregon State or Kelvin Benjamin of Florida State would be an option for a team that wants a new threat in the passing game after getting rid of Jackson.
