Report: Eagles stockpile future draft capital in blockbuster trade with Saints

Leading up to the 2022 NFL Draft, there was much speculation on whether the Eagles would actually keep all three of their first-round picks.

With an unexciting QB class this year, there were rumors that GM Howie Roseman could look to move some picks for capital in next year’s draft. Those rumors came to fruition today with a deal between Philadelphia and New Orleans:

With the Eagles and Saints swapping first-round selections ahead of the draft, Roseman was able to secure an additional first-round pick in next year’s draft that’ll be headlined by QBs Bryce Young and CJ Stroud.

Philly was also able to retain their highest pick, No. 15 overall, in the deal. This trade gives the Eagles the future draft flexibility they wanted while giving Jalen Hurts another audition in 2022.

As an added bonus, the Eagles essentially turned Carson Wentz into a first-round pick next year, a 2024 second-round pick, and a third-round pick this year.

Not bad, Howard.
