Having traded back in the very first round, the Philadelphia Eagles are reportedly seeking to make a move up in the 2021 NFL draft. )

Per ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, the Eagles”have been active” in following a trade. Opposing teams believe that they would like to get in the very best 10 to get an elite cornerback prospect. 

The Eagles originally had the first pick in the draft, but they moved to No. 12 in a trade together with the Miami Dolphins last month. That deal also landed them an additional fourth-round pick this year and a first-rounder in 2022. 

Fowler noted opposing clubs feel that Philadelphia want to get in front of the Dallas Cowboys at No. 10. 

The Cowboys have been linked to several players throughout the predraft procedure, such as cornerbacks Jaycee Horn in South Carolina and Patrick Surtain II from Alabama. 

B/R’s NFL sampling section  projected Dallas to pick Surtain in its final mock draft, even while it had the Eagles selecting Alabama wideout Jaylen Waddle together with all the 12th pick. 

The Eagles have many needs entering the NFL draft. Cornerback, wide receiver and linebacker are the positions most in need of an immediate update. 

Given how heavy this year’s pass-catching class seems to be, Philadelphia could possibly target a cornerback in the first round and add a receiver in the next round when the board works out in its own favor.
